Geek out with these 5 unique gifts
It’s that time of year when finding the perfect gift can be a near-impossible task, but if you have a science-lover, video gamer, Star Wars fanatic, book worm or gadget guru on your list, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve partnered with ThinkGeek.com to bring you 5 unique gift ideas to geek out over:
The science lover:
These planetary glasses are sure to be the perfect showstopper for any bar cart or party. The set features 10 planetary drinking glasses (the Sun and Pluto are included) which are vibrantly stunning. ShopAtHome.com received a set, and we couldn’t stop looking at them. The cups are made from glass and achieve their stunning colors via a high quality heat wrap. While an amazing gift, they are not dishwasher or microwave safe, so be sure to let your loved one know, so they can enjoy them for many years. Planetary Glass Set, $49.99 (plus Cash Back), ThinkGeek.com
What beats a traditional board game? How about one that levitates! Consider this unique futuristic building and balancing game for one to eight players. To play, players take turns stacking pieces on a platform…that levitates! The last person to stack a piece without causing a crash wins. It’s a quick (but addicting) game lasting anywhere form 30 seconds to five minutes. Hoverkraft Levitating Construction Challenge, (plus Cash Back), ThinkGeek.com.
Star Wars fanatic:
Who doesn’t love a tacky sweater? But these ThinkGeek exclusive Star Wars sweaters take it to a whole new galaxy with a tribute to the holiday’s Dark Side. The sweaters are 100% acrylic and are gender neutral, so every fan can share the imperial cheer. Make sure the sweater lasts through the millenniums by hand washing cold and drying flat. Star Wars Holiday Sweaters, $49.99 (plus Cash Back), ThinkGeek.com
Light up your gamer’s desk with a Tetris Lamp! It’s a truly unique gift that will provide hours and hours of entertainment (and utility). ShopAtHome.com received this lamp and found it to be enjoyably addicting. The seven interlocking pieces can be stacked in countless arrangements. The blocks light up when stacked on top of the blue base, which plugs into the wall. Just like the game, stacking takes some precision, but it’s easy to get the hang of. Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp, $39.99 (plus Cash Back), ThinkGeek.com.
Bibliophiles (aka book lovers) unite with this classic book bag! This satchel takes its name quite literally, as it looks like a very large classic leather book (bonus points for propping it up on a book shelf when not in use). It’s large enough to hold smaller laptops (designed to fit a 15″ macbook – be sure to measure to ensure a fit), as well as other essentials like phones, keys and — of course — your favorite book. Olde Book Messenger Bag, $49.99 (plus Cash Back), ThinkGeek.com
