Geeky jewelry is on the rise and, luckily, there are many options out there for geeks. There are necklaces that hold dice, quirky rings, pins to broadcast your favorite show, and more out there. There’s sure to be a geeky jewelry item that just screams that it belongs with the geek in your life. Check out Etsy for custom items or, if you don’t have time to wait on shipping, go to your local Hot Topic or geeky store to get something before sleigh bells ring on Christmas Eve.

Just like with jewelry, geeky accessories are becoming more popular! I personally have an obsession with geeky bows, but there are also belts, wallets, shoelaces, and so many more items out there for the geek in your life. Again, some of the best geeky accessories can be found online, but if you don’t have that sweet Amazon Prime, check out your local mall. There are many stores that carry awesome (and cheap) geeky accessories!

There are a ton of collectibles out there for geeks. We’re kinda known for liking to collect the stuff related to our favorite geeky things, fyi. Collectibles are super easy to get right now if your geek is into Star Wars, but other geeky passions also have collectibles in local stores (and, of course, all across the internet)! You can check out your local comic store, collectibles store, or even just the toy aisle of the chain store down the street to get some awesome cheap collectibles!

If you have a geek who loves playing card games, you’re in luck! There are a ton of different card games and card accessories out there. If they are into a specific card game (Yu-Gi-Oh, Magic: The Gathering, Pokemon, etc), or collecting cards; we suggest getting them decks or booster packs to expand their collection. If they’re really into the tournament scene, try getting a deck box that shows their interests. If they’re into more casual card games, you can get them card games for cheap!

Finally, there’s also a bunch of nerdy makeup out there! There’s a new Star Wars line by Covergirl that you can find in stores, a ton of makeup and nail polish at Hot Topic, or you could check out my favorite nerdy makeup spot, Espionage Cosmetics. Espionage has the best in nerdy themed makeup and nail wraps fitting any geek. As a bonus, all of their non-bundled nail wraps and makeup are under $15! However, get in those orders now so you’ll get the gifts in the knick of time!
