Stuff I Want (Holiday): For The Kids
Every winter we gather around and think of all the awesome and amazing geeky gifts we could get for various people, and even ask for ourselves. This year is no different.
Because there are so many great things to consider, we have decided to once again share some holiday themed articles. As geekdom continues to grow, I felt a Stuff I Want and So Should You for the nerdy kids of the world would make sense. So parents, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and family friends take heed as this list will point you in the right direction.
LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy
Created by Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki using his son’s LEGOs, this book is filled with glorious and fun images of Star Wars mini-figs in action. The best part about it, it’s fairly priced and it can fuel imagination and creativity.
Gift Certificate to the Local Comic Shop
An obvious choice is a gift certificate to your local comic book shop. Not only will you help out a local, small comic shop but you’ll also create a behavior of comic shopping and comic pull lists for your child to enjoy for years to come.
BUY AT YOUR LOCAL STORE
Disney Frozen Complete Story Play Set
Let’s face it, Frozen isn’t going anywhere. And if the child you’re shopping for happens to love it already you might as well check out this fantastic character play set. It will keep them occupied until the sequel drops.
Comic Bento: Monthly Comic Box
As fun as it is to go and pick out your pull list, getting surprise comic titles each month is as equally as awesome. Although I would recommend this subscription service for older kids, introducing them to new comics at any age is a great idea.
Guitar Hero Live Starter Pack
It was 6 years ago that the last Guitar Hero and Rock Band games came out, and 2015 brought a resurgence to the franchises. Guitar Hero Live has more than a 150 songs already available to play and comes in a fantastic 2-guitar pack so you and the kid can get straight to rocking out.
12th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver
Hopefully the geeky kid you’re shopping for already had the 10th and 11th Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver. But even so, they now need the 12th Doctor’s tool of choice. Available at a great price on Amazon.
Geek Fuel: Monthly Mystery Box
It’s the gift that keeps on giving, a membership to Geek Fuel. Geek Fuel is a monthly mystery box subscription service that starts at $25 and works its way down in price the longer you subscribe. The best thing about Geek Fuel is it is totally family friendly and offers a new shirt, game, and variety of other greatness in every box.
Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack
If the kids don’t have it already, this is the most obvious choice for geeky families with game systems. The starter pack features characters from Star Wars, but the game can expand to also cover Disney’s Inside Out, Tron, and more.
There are so many great and geeky gift options for kids of all ages, just take a look around. But in the meantime, click through the links above and get those kids in your life the geeky goodness they deserve.
