Nerdy Gifts for Him and Her This Christmas
Grown-up geeks are still kids at heart. So, Christmas is extra exciting… because it means toys! But, that does put some pressure on anyone buying gifts for them. After all, there’s so much choice. So, if you’re a little stuck for pop culture gift ideas, this list is a Christmas miracle!
We’ve put together a short guide of our top 10 gifts for your nerdy boyfriend, girlfriend, partner, parent, or mate. They’re all super cool and cover some major pop culture franchises, so they’re sure to go down well. OK, here we go!
1. Star Wars The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet
This Hasbro Mandalorian helmet might not be made out of Beskar, but you’d never know. It’s a seriously detailed replica of the Mandalorian’s helmet, complete with interior details. And, it even has an LED light for when you’re exploring mudhorn caves or sneaking into the kitchen for some midnight biscuits.
It’s great for display or for cosplay. But, if your geek ends up wearing it, they might not ever take it off again, so be prepared. After all, this is the way!

9. DC Batman 1966 Batmobile
Ah, the 1966 Batman TV show. It was more campy than a Boy Scout’s summer and filled with tights that hugged people’s legs tighter than a freaked out cat. But, we’ll be darned if it wasn’t awesome. And, if you know a Batman fan that feels the same, they’ll love this Batman ’66 Batmobile model.
It’s massively detailed and comes in a display box with the Bat Cave in the background – perfect for display.
