Shopping for a geek is harder than blowing up the Death Star using a targeting computer instead of the Force. Geeks tend to be hard to impress because they have the feeling that no one understands the passion they have for their favorite shows, movies, or comics. Here is a quick list of some awesome gift ideas to get the right thing for that geeky person you’re shopping for!


Star Wars

If the force is strong with the person you’re shopping for, they might really like a few of these ideas. For those living in areas that are about as cold as the ice Planet Hoth, your geek my enjoy one of our winter hats featuring Chewbacca, a Wampa, Wicket’s headpiece and Princess Leia’s hair style.

Finally, if you notice the person you’re shopping for needs a new bag, they might love this Chewbacca messenger bag to carry their tools and Wookie cookies.
