The Ten: Unique Holiday Gift Ideas
The Ten Unique Holiday Gifts
Our monthly original series are back, starting with The Ten.
It’s December, so what better way to get our top ten lists rolling with some holiday recommendations. But let’s be honest, you already know what to get those special people in your life, it’s the odd and unique friends (like people that work for Project-Nerd) that are the hard ones to figure out.
So with that, we have The Ten Unique Holiday Gift ideas for you to shop through. I assure you, one of these gifts will drive that special, nerdy snowflake to smile this holiday season.
Jeff Goldblum & The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra
That’s right kids, Jeff Goldblum, everyone’s favorite oddball, has a new music album out and it’s actually fantastic. It includes special guests, such as Haley Reinhart, and features Goldblum tearing up the piano.
Luminoodle Color TV Backlighting
This is dumb, but it’s so fun. The geeks of the world typically have a solid setup, whether it’s a big screen television or unnatural sized computer monitors. Give that setup some flair with this unique backlighting option. It plugs directly into the TV and has multiple color options.
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Dress Tie
It’s exactly what it says it is, a nerdy way to still look professional. When I have to cover up the Star Wars arm tattoo, I can still represent my fandom with this amazing tie. And here’s the thing, for less than $20 now that nerdy guy in your life can too.
Super NES Classic
The “classic” game systems have been all the rage as of late. The new PSOne Classic hits shelves this month, and the NES Classic as well as the highly-touted Super NES Classic is already available for a damn good price. We recommend the latter, but all three would work.
It’s a three-light lamp that uses a rechargeable pod system. Meaning, the lamp can sit there in the middle of the table but when you are on the move you can grab one of the three pods and take it with you through the dark. If that friend has kids, this is a no-brainer.
Nightmare Before Christmas Tea Cups
It’s cold outside, so another unique option can help you warm up with some coffee. Nightmare Before Christmas fans enjoy anything related to the movie, so these will definitely fit that bill. These tea cups make a great gift for fans who will love the awesome design as well as the superb quality.
Super Chill: A Year of Living Anxiously
Adam’s comics deal with weightier topics like seasonal affective disorder and struggles with self-esteem, while also touching on the silly and absurd—like his brief, but intense obsession with crystals. With a bright, positive outlook and a sense of humor, Super Chill tells a story that is both highly relatable and intensely personal.
Poo~Pourri Before-You-Go Toilet Spray
Yeah, we went there. Poo-Pourri is the spray for you to keep that awful smell contained. And with all the holiday parties, gift exchange get-togethers, and family visits, you need to limit those smells. Spritz the bowl before-you-go and no one else will ever know!
We said unique, and we said for the unique. With that, why not a Christmas themed suit? The slim-fit Christmas clothing contains the best of both classy suits and ugly Christmas sweaters, so they’re funny and stylish at the same time.
Yeah! A Totoro Bed! This massive, double bed size, plush Totoro doubles as a bed and is epicly amazing. Who in their right mind doesn’t want this? But for the price, this is our big ticket recommendation. Only get it for that very special person in your life, or me.
That’s it for The Ten Unique Gift Ideas this holiday season. Again, we promise, these work for that weird brother that runs a geek brand, or that nerdy coworker that never stops talking movies, or that beautiful friend that’s always caught up in anime.
Go get the gifts before it’s too late!
