The Perfect Gift for the Geek in Your Life

by | Dec 8, 2017

Each holiday season, we become a bit obsessed with finding the perfect gift for each of the special people in our lives. We cherish the hunt, but it can take a lot of time, which we never seem to have enough of.

So, in this post we’re hoping to help you spot that one-of-a-kind present faster, and with a little less stress.

Of course, the chances are pretty high that we’re going to leave out at least one store (but probably more) that you already love. If you’re not seeing your favorites, tell us some of your picks in the comments below (or, better yet, on our Facebook page) and be sure to leave links!

Here’s Our Top Ten-ish List

OK, so here’s our 2018 list (not in any particular order!):

1. Super Hero Stuff – T-shirts, hats and hoodies, oh my! We’re particularly big fans of their Hero Box superhero mystery boxes!

2. This Is Why I’m Broke – The name says it all. Great place to start since it links to others. Pretty hard to not find something to buy here. Go ahead, treat yourself while you’re there too.

3. Her Universe – Looking for fashion? Fantastic selection for the fangirls in your life (#FlauntYourWorld)

4. Box Lunch – To us it kind of feels like Hot Topic, with a little less black, and more heart (for every $10 spent, they donate a meal through Feeding America on behalf of local food banks. And, how about that Loungefly bag selection?!

5. Red Bubble – Yes, there are million original artist-fueled t-shirt and gift shops, but this is one of our favorites because of the vast selection – and they even have stuff for kids and babies!

6. Society6 – For prints and decor we love Society6 because their stuff is just plain cool. Not purely geeky, but well worth the visit if you’re looking for homey gifts.

7. Shut Up and Take My Money – No list would be complete without it.

8. Geek Buying – For the tech nerd (or geek?) in your life.

9. Forbidden Planet – Anything and everything, with a heavy comic and graphic novel vibe!

10. Maker Shed – Got Makers in your life? Here’s your one stop shop.

11. The Mother of All Lists – OK, so while we’re pretty happy with our own list, we also know that there will always be a better, more exhaustively researched, and more lovingly curated one out there in the internets somewhere. And this just happens to be one of the biggest we could find … so, thought we’d toss it in, juuust in case you need it 😉

Oh, and Did We Tell You About Our New Denver Pop Culture Con Gift Boxes?

Was this post good, bad … just meh? Tell us in the comments below! Got an idea for a blog post topic? We want to hear them! Post them in comments, or on our Facebook page, or send them to info@popcultureclassroom.org.

OK, so we have a very special post coming up soon. Since you were so kind to read this post to the very end, we’ll give you a few not-so-subtle hints: 1) It involves our first BIG guest announcements, and 2) they are coming earlier than you might have expected!

Happy Holidays!



    Your doing a great job with info about what’s coming up at the Comic Coms.
    I think this year is the best yet on upcoming Denver Pop Culture Con.
    Is there any way you can let us know when guests have canceled?

    Thank you so much for all the work you put forth your awesome.

    Thanks again

      Tracey, absolutely! So far everyone that we’ve announced is still on the schedule 🙂
