If you are not a geeky person yourself, it can be quite hard to buy a gift for your geeky friend, boyfriend, girlfriend – the closer they are, the direr the situation. I mean, geeks don’t generally bore other people with their interests as they feel that this interest should be genuine and it can be hard to get information as your sudden interest might trigger some alarms.
We have a few good game ideas to help you get on the right path.
- Craft some pixel art for them
There are few geeks out there who are not gamers – or at least they were in the past. With some paper, markers, glue, and some patience to follow instructions, you can create pixel art of their favorite characters from their youth. Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Megaman – these are just some of the examples you could go for.
- Tickets for Comic-Con
If you really like this person and really want them to remember you for the rest of their lives, you might want to get them a ticket for Comic-Con. Let me warn you right off the bat, they are expensive and hard to come by due to the tremendous demand they are in right now.
Still, this is a no-brainer when it comes to getting a present for someone who has a geeky side – Comic-Con is the best event in the realm of geeky people and, if you want to make an impression, you are on the right path with this one.
- Throw a theme party based on a fandom they follow
This one will take some research. If you want to impress someone who is really a fan of a particular video game world, anime, TV show or book with a themed event, you’ll really need to put in a lot of research. If the details are off, it won’t be the same, they won’t tell you but they’ll know.
Make sure you are up for this task. You are bound to make them very happy if you pull it off.
- Loot box
Finally, there are few things as exciting as getting a present that nobody knows what it is. Loot boxes are a great way to do this, but you’ll have to find loot boxes with the right type of random items inside. Lootaku loot crates are a great option for buying nerdy loot boxes.
These are our quick ideas for geeky gifts. We hope you’ll make your geek happy!
