While the flux-capacitor hasn’t been perfected, and we can’t help you fix any past holiday humbuggery, maybe we can help you get this holiday season off to a good start.
For the next 12 days (Dec 1st-12th), the staff of Nerd Bastards will be listing a few of their favorite nerdy things. Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.
We hope you’ll find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.
Hit the jump for Chris’ list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Jeremy’s list. To see the archive of this feature, click HERE.
Pour me a hero tumbler set: $27.99
How can you ever be a proper host if you don’t have epic tumblers in which to serve drinks for your nerdtastic get togethers? I think it’s pretty clear how having these will boost your nerd cred.
Death Star dress: $130 AUD
Nerdy and sexy. Best of both worlds – what more can I say?
I remember seeing this a few months ago and just thinking that it was the shit. It’s not very overt but it’s obvious enough that those who are “in the know” will know. Plus, it’s just gorgeous!
There are different sizes that should work with most netbooks and smaller laptops. Or MacBooks, because I’m biased. But now you’ll have your own “Bazinga!” sign wherever you go – you can pull it out at school or in meetings… sky’s the limit!
She says it can fit 7″… Bazinga! (Sorry, couldn’t help myself.)
This is really cute. Your Harry Potter nerd lady-friend will love this. There’s a black crystal off to the side that’s meant to represent the resurrection stone. I’m a sucker for the little details.
These are just fuckin’ epic. Apparently the seller on Etsy custom makes all the shoes so you can actually choose which comics you want transferred onto the shoes and all that fun stuff. It’s a neat way to introduce some nerdy flair into your wardrobe. Or bedroom. Whatever floats your boat.
Doctor Who TARDIS Bathrobe: $69.99
This has got to be the most comfortable thing ever. It certainly looks that way! Who wouldn’t want to badass around the pad with a TARDIS robe? Not me, that’s for sure.
Just be aware that it’s a “one size fits most” dealie so you may need to consider whether or not it’ll actually fit the person to whom you’re gifting this. Unfortunately, I’d be swimming in it.
Big Bang Theory Seasons 1-4: $89.09
No household is complete without easy access to The Big Bang Theory. Last year, my friends and I did a 24 hour Big Bang marathon over the holidays and it was fuckin’ awesome. Get together a bunch of pals, some drinks and munchies and have at it!
The Star Wars Cookbook Kit: $22.99
I would love to be able to make some Obi-Wan tons! And Darth Vader cookies! Fun for the whole family.
And last but not least… you can decide for yourself whether I’m proposing the bikini or the girl as the ultimate gift this holiday season.
