Looking for the best geek gifts for that special nerd in your life? We’ve got you covered at Nerd Much?.
Whether you’re looking for gift ideas for yourself or you’re shopping for that special nerd in your family, you’ll definitely find something awesome in our list below. We’ve featured cool stuff for board game lovers, gamers, bookworms, sci-fi enthusiasts, superhero nerds, and so much more.
So if you’re looking for something fun and nerdy for a friend or loved one, or you’re looking for a celebratory gift for gamers, movie-lovers or TV bingers, here are the 101 best geek gifts for nerds in 2020:
1 Wildlands Board Game
It has been awhile since I’ve really dug a new board game to the extent that I dig Wildlands, the new game from Martin Wallace. But, after playing my first game of Wildlands with some friends, I’ve fallen in love with it. In fact, dare I say that it’s my new favorite board game?[Read More]
In Wildlands, you’re given one of four factions, each with five characters in each faction. In the most basic terms, you’re tasked with essentially collecting five points by finding gems scattered on the board (1 point) or defeating other player characters in battle (also 1 point). Any combination of these totalling five makes you the winner. But it’s much more complicated than just moving to space and collecting that gem, as you have to have the required cards to do so.
With its awesome miniatures and incredibly fun gameplay, Wildlands would make a great gift for your favorite board game-loving nerd. It’s available now, thanks to Osprey Games.
2 Cougar Armor Gaming Chair
Gaming chairs make a great gift for gaming geeks and there are TONS of different gaming chairs to choose from.[Read More]
3 Altair AA Aqua RC Boat
If he/she is an RC geek like us, check out one of the best RC boats on the market right now: the Altair AA Aqua. [Read More]
The Altair AA Aqua is ultra sleek-looking, too, with a slim red and black body that is display-worthy. It also comes ready to race, so you can take it out of the box, plug in the battery, and then take it to your favorite lake or pool. It’s the best RC boat under $100, for sure. It’s a great gift for any age, too – kids, teens, and a man child like myself!
4 Tile Sticker 8-Pack | Only $99.99 + FREE Google Nest Mini ($159.96 Value!!)
Sponsored by Tile
If you’re shopping for a tech-loving nerd who frequently loses their things, you might want to pick up one of these Tile Sticker 8-Packs right now from Thetileapp.com. I can’t stress enough how handy these little trackers are—especially for someone who frequently loses their keys, controllers, TV remotes, wallet, and smartphone.
In fact, my wife picked up a pack of these earlier this year as a birthday gift for me and I have them on those items previously mentioned, as well as my headphone charging case, Liz’s (my wife’s) phone, and her set of keys. They’re small trackers that stick to virtually whatever you want so that you can find them when you lose them using your smartphone app. It’s a small finder that sticks to everything you can imagine. And you can find whatever item you’ve lost right with your smartphone using the Tile app, which will loudly (I repeat, LOUDLY!) ring your trackers to help you find the item.
As someone who frequently has his young daughter run off with his wallet, keys, and phone, I can tell you the Tile Stickers have been the perfect solution to that problem. We absolutely think they’ll make the perfect geek gift for the tech-loving giftee this holiday season.
Right now through 12/31, if you order a Tile Sticker 8-Pack you’ll get a FREE Google Nest Mini along with it!

13 Star Wars Baking Set (6pc) – Limited Edition
I do not know about all of you but I for one have always wanted to take a big ol’ bite out of Yoda. [Read More]

There are also some non-nerd related types, like NFL helmets and a trippy pink elephant, but those all pale in comparison to a Zelda triforce.

31 PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Posters Book
Do you want to go back to the good ‘ole days? When only a movie poster and a sparsely seen movie trailer was all you had to fuel excitement for the latest cinematic thrill? I’m talking long before the days of the internet before pop-up ads reminded us every 30 seconds of what’s currently the movies.
The PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection hardcover book aims to take you back to the day of simplicity in movie marketing with a 240-page collection of alternative posters. Curated from PosterSpy, an art community devoted to creating alternate posters for Hollywood’s greatest hits (and biggest flops).
The hardcover collection is a vibrant and often gloomy selection of posters that will leave you wondering why you’re constantly looking at over-photoshopped works that have no substance. PosterSpy’s community of artists are talented individuals that put many of Hollywood’s premier movie marquee creators to shame.
Flip through page after page of stunning artwork for big-budget productions, like the Star Wars saga or the latest iteration of comic book movies, to more artsy films you may have never seen but can appreciate poster art for.
PosterSpy: Alternative Movie Poster Collection is a must-have for any movie buff. If you’ve been to your local theater to catch every big new release, you’re going to appreciate the alternate takes on movie posters you’ve likely stared at while waiting for your friends to get popcorn.
From minimalist approaches to more abstract creations, each poster contained inside this 240-page collection will delight. It may even inspire you to swap out that A New Hope poster you’ve been hanging in your cinema room for something more cerebral and unique.
Gift yourself a collection of beautifully rendered movie posters or buy PosterSpy for the movie buff in your life.
32 Back to the Future: The Complete Adventures Blu-Ray Set
With Back to the Future seeing a major resurgence in popularity this year (thanks to the movie’s future taking place in October 2015), Universal has put together a complete blu-ray set which includes the original trilogy and the complete TV series. It’s a great nerd gift for any BTTF lover (read: everyone).
33 Original Batgirl Statue by Tweeterhead
But I’m sure you knew all that. I am also sure you would love to have this Batman Classics Collection Batgirl Statue by Tweeterhead. This resin statue is beautiful and has a lot of detail thanks to the sculptors Mike Cusanelli and Trevor Grove. She is wearing her original red and green costume which looks super retro (and retro comic things are always cool in our book). When standing on her base, she is 11-inches tall — the perfect height for her to stand out in your collection for everyone to admire.
This would be a great addition to any Batman collection, especially if you like the DC classics. It looks gorgeous and can be a great conversation piece considering most people would not know who she is. What makes this piece even cooler? It’s limited! You could be the proud owner of something that limited people in the world have. So let out that greedy little kid in you and go pre-order one before it’s too late. They’re shipping now.

37 Luxury Star Wars Pens (Cross)
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens around the corner, every smart merchandiser is finding a way to create some cool Star Wars merch. Now, high-end luxury pen company Cross has crafted the ultimate Star Wars Darth Vader Fountain Pen.
The pen commemorates the original 1977 film, as it has been designed to reflect the dark side of the force. It has a stain-black finish with Darth Vader-themed engravings, as well as a red Swarovski crystal inset at the top to represent his lightsaber. There are only 1,977 of the Darth Vader pens produced, and they’ve each been serialized for legitimacy as well as a certificate of authenticity. It comes with a keepsake box and stand (because what’s the point of owning a luxury Darth Vader pen if you can’t show it off to your friends). The hand-finished 18KT gold fountain pen nib adapts to the user’s unique touch, and it uses quick-drying ink that has been specially formulated. Of course, it comes in at a hefty price tag.
What’s more, there is also a Stormtrooper edition and a 23KT gold plated C-3PO version as well. These might be worth neglecting rent for.

67 Notes from the Upside Down | Unofficial Stranger Things Guide
