As a geeky nerd, and the mother of geeky nerds I can use both of those terms lovingly. If it’s sci-fi, I probably love it and those gifts are always the most loved during the holidays and birthdays. Have you ever been to Comic-Con? Neither have I, but that would be a fabulous gift. Either plane tickets and a whole vacation around the “real” Comic-Con in San Diego, or a smaller version in your town. I confess to being a little intimidated to go to one. I’m not sure if I have the right outfit, and I still don’t really understand Cosplay!
Shopping for Geeks & Nerds
Every holiday I, of course, am searching for something new for the folks on my list so below is a selection of the best deals or most unique geeky stuff I could find.

Big Bang Theory Gifts
“Big Bang Theory” is the number one comedy show on TV and Sheldon Cooper is everyone’s favorite geek. If you have a geek in your family we bet they are a fan too. We have scoured Amazon and found the coolest games, bobbleheads, t-shirts and DVD’s that the BBT addicts on your gift list will love.
Every Big Bang Theory fan needs a life-size Sheldon Cooper cut out and one of Sheldon’s iconic t-shirts like the melting Rubix cube, Bazinga, Flash or any other of his nerdy T‘s. How about a “Knock knock Penny x 3 ” T-shirt?.
One of my favorite episodes of BBT is the one where Sheldon explains the rules of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock…. over and over again. According to Big Bang Theory, this game has been mentioned in 3 episodes. Twice in season 2 and our favorite in season 5 where the explanation is made. Click here to see T-shirts & Dice games to play.
“Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has,rock crushes scissors.”
We love how much the Big Bang Theory characters have science fiction shows as guest stars on the show. One of the funniest love-hate relationships is Sheldon Cooper and Wesley Crusher. Remember the episode where they battle each other at the bowling alley? You can have your own “Wesley Crushers” bowling shirt.
Do you have someone in your house that has their own spot? I grew up with a father just like that! You were NOT allowed to sit in his chair which was closest to the kitchen and was directly in front of the TV. God forbid if you walked in front of the TV during some horrible science fiction show. Don’t get me wrong, I am a super geeky sci-fi gal, but not ALL of it is good. Anyway, I digress, if you have your own Sheldon clone living with you, you might want a ” “You Are In My Spot” t-shirt or other funny. I think my guy my really need these red Bazinga boxer shorts.
