Holiday Buyers’ Guide: Gifts For Novice Nerds

So you’re a nerd, and like good nerd-fairies everywhere, you want to spread the love of all things geeky to some of your nearest and dearest. You know, those friends whose eyes don’t totally glaze over when you retell your favorite twitch channel anecdotes? Or maybe someone who has shown a bit more than a polite interest in your D&D adventures? Maybe you have a new girlfriend or boyfriend who you are trying to share your nerdy passions with?

‘Tis the season to give them the gift that keeps on giving: one of their first artifacts from the world of geek. But where to begin? First you’ll want to identify what their nerd leanings are so you can reinforce those with your gift and build a solid foundation for an emerging fandom. Have they shown more interest in video games or science-fiction? Do they like to read? If they like improv, a role-playing game might be in the cards…

An important point to remember is not to overdo it: if you go full-throttle geek on a friend who’s just at the window-shopping stage of their nerd journey, it could backfire. You don’t want to frighten away a future geek-brother or geek-sister in arms! Read on for a gift guide that will entice, but not overwhelm, your potential n00b to nerd converts.
