Not long left for Christmas, and it’s that time of the year when we empty our wallets and burn our brains to come up with great ideas for gifts. It can be a real struggle to find the right gift no matter how well you know the person. And of course, nobody wants to see their gift on eBay the day after. So me and Nya have partnered up (along with Etsy) to give you ideas of what to get to your geeky girlfriend or boyfriend, if you have one. We think the amazing thing about Etsy marketplace is the fact you can get so many low budget but creative gifts, handmade and personalized. We have decided to split this post in two parts. So let’s start with mine.


What to give to your boyfriend, if he’s geeky like me?

by Fenrile


The Classic But Non-Old-Fashioned Key Ring

A geeky key ring is always a safe gift. It doesn’t matter how many of those you boyfriend already owns, the more the better. And Lucy Grocott from HowCharmingByLucy will give you plenty of choice. From Batman to Star Wars through Pokemon, for all geek types. You can also find classic ones or even those perfect for the young at heart, like the Lion King for example.

The Comics Customized Accessories

Is your boyfriend a drinker? Or does he need more hangers for his clothes? Kate and Jon Cogan from MonkeyAndTheBird will give you some nice and original handmade ideas. Give him the opportunity to fill whiskey or Mountain Dew in a cool Flash customized flask. Or he can place his drink on a cool Batman coaster. And Wonder Woman can hang his favorite sweater in the closet. You have many choices here, and if you don’t like DC Comics (I won’t say anything, I promise), you also have some Marvel choice.

For (Real) Drink Lovers

To stay in the drinking mood, you can also offer him some nice shooters. If he’s more tequila than whiskey for example it will be a good idea. Dean Costello from ATouchOnGlass will give some great ideas for customized shooter glasses. You have the choice between Justice League, Suicide Squad, Marvel or even Magic The Gathering for example, and more!

For The High-Fashioned Ones

Not only girls like fashion, but we guys also like to wear nice clothes and accessories. And especially for the geeky ones, it can be difficult to find something showing our lifestyle. Is your boyfriend forced to work in a suit? Give him some nice cufflinks to give a subtle touch of geekness. StyledGents will give the choice between some Star Wars, Game of Thrones or more cuff links.

Is He Original, Vintage or Both?

WhenTheMusicsOver and SMARTCreationsStore will give the choice of awesome clocks that you didn’t even imagine possible. Either using a vintage cassette recorder or some customized, reused hard-drive, this is for the real nerds!

Special Mention

Finally, if he’s a real fan about Star Wars, you wanna have a look at XercesArt and their amazing handcraft creations. From recycled materials, this unique and amazing figure inspired by Anakin’s pod racer

What to give to your girlfriend, if she’s geeky like me?

Geeky Jewelry 

Even if your girlfriend is not super girly, there is a high probability she’ll find a geeky piece of jewelry the most awesome thing ever. StudioRavenscraig even lets you request your own custom order!


(Almost) every girl loves chocolate. So what about a chocolate molecule for the geeky ones?

The Classic Geeky Tee

It’s impossible to go wrong with a fashionable (or not) geeky Tee, even if her wardrobe is already full of them. Whether she is into videogames or comics or anything else really, you’ll find plenty to chose from.

An Oldschool Game for her Oldschool Console

Ok, so the usability of this one is debatable, depending whether she stills plays on her retro console or not. But we all keep stuff we don’t use, for collection purposes. I admit I still keep my classic Playstation first games. Retro Pixels Arcade is the dream shop for any oldschool gamer out there. SNES, N64, Gameboy, Playstation, you name it!


This is a sealed Final Fantasy IX for PS1, a game that deserves all the praise it gets

Or if you’re feeling generous, get her the console AND the games – this one is a classic NES + 7 games included


Geeky Stationery

And last but not least, if your girlfriend is geeky, chances are she has an healthy obsession with cute stationery. Get her a good supply for the beginning of the year! Juanny Andrade at Melon Thief Design Studio has a beautiful selection of handmade notebooks. She has a section for the geeks but she’s also open to custom orders.

And another shop you need to check for your girlfriend’s stationery needs is definitely VisitingCINDERELLA who crafts the most beautiful wooden notebooks. Yes, wooden notebooks, and not just any wooden notebooks, actually custom ones!

This DC Comics wooden notebook is beautiful on its own, but you can also engrave HER name

Here’s our top two:

I always use a notebook for notes about my blog!
