Geek Guy Gift Ideas | Blogmas #9

On the ninth day of Christmas my blogger friend came to me, and asked me to write for her blog... Again! Haha legit can't believe I did that again, but whatever IT'S CHRISTMAS! If you read both of our collaboration posts on each other's blogs on Wednesday, then you'll know that we wrote part one of two posts with geeky Christmas gift guides. I wrote about girls (which you can read here) and Sarah wrote about guys (which you can read here), but today we're swapping so I'm writing my geeky guy gift guide for you all! 

Like I said on my geeky girl guide, I really hope you enjoy this gift guide from me. I really love doing gift guides so much, especially when I can help out fellow girls with gifts for their boyfriends, siblings, friends or even a Secret Santa idea! 

Like with my geeky girl gift guide, a lot of the gift ideas on here I feel are from the same shops online and I was worried about this, but as Sarah said to me, it's not a bad thing as people can order similar items from the same shop online and save on P&P! :D 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the geeky guy gift guide I've put together! 

Geek Guy Gift Guide - There Might Be Coffee Blog

Controller and Nintendo 64 Cartridge Soaps | From Firebox (Link 1 & Link 2)

When looking for gift ideas this was the first one I came across and after a lot of umming and ahhing over which of the two to add, I decided to add both as they're just all too good not to add! Not saying you guys need bars of soap and to be clean, but how awesome would it be to use these to wash your hands, or in the shower!? They're also citrus scented so it'll wake whoever uses it up in the mornings! If I had to buy my boyfriend Dane one I'd definitely opt for an Xbox One controller! These would make amazing Secret Santa gifts for men in the office, or even a sibling. 

Rick & Morty Pickle Rick Sweater | From Grindstore 

Know someone who is a fan of Rick & Morty? Then this sweater will be RIGHT up their alley! When the Pickle Rick episode came on, everyone went bat shit crazy for Pickle Rick and people still are to be fair. You can get this in a t-shirt too, but I thought the sweater would be more apt for these colder months in the UK. I thought about getting my boyfriend Dane this sweater for Christmas, but left it as he wasn't as crazy about Pickle Rick as I thought he was. :p This is definitely an easy gift for someone... providing they love and enjoy the show. ;) 

Star Wars Origami | From Firebox 

I doubt very much that all guys will be into origami, Star Wars, or even both! BUT I can only imagine that this would be  such a fun gift to receive Christmas Day, especially if they're a bit drunk and merry and want something fun to have a go at! I know I'd love to receive something like this! It looks huge as well so I imagine there are so many ideas to choose from! As well as getting the book you could also get some origami papers alongside it so they don't run out of paper to play and mould with. 

Deadpool Pyjamas | From EMP

EVERYONE loves getting pyjamas for Christmas and if you don't then you need to get the fuck out! :p I joke, but seriously who doesn't like getting pyjamas?? I found loads of awesome ones but the Deadpool ones just stood out to me, and to be honest I wish I had found these sooner as I would have bought them for my boyfriend Dane! They're simple and definitely a good present for moms to get their sons if they're stuck for ideas! 

Pokémon Gengar Snapback Cap | From Grindstore

I know not everyone likes snapbacks but I know quite a lot of people who are getting into the ''trend'' now and out of the few Pokémon ones I found, this was the best one! I have a Gengar sweater that I bought from Camden last Christmas and I love it! If you know that the guy you're buying for likes a particular Pokémon then go for it, but I just find the Gengar one to be more tasteful with the purple and charcoal grey. 

Stikbot Studio | From I Want One Of Those 

This is definitely the best gift idea on this post for so many reasons and for all ages and sexes! This is a little studio where you can make stop-start animation films on your mobile phone. You use the two little stickmen, and download the app on your phone and away you go. SIMPLE and you can definitely have a go on Christmas Day! This would be more fun for any aspiring film makers to have a play with, I know loads of friends who would love to own something like this and to be honest, I would too! 

Star Wars Light Up Chop Sticks | From Firebox

I love using chop sticks and as soon as I get the chance to use them I will. I bought my boyfriend Dane some Star Wars Darth Vader chop sticks quite a few Christmases ago now and to be honest, I use them more than he does! I nearly bought the light up ones for him and they're pretty funky! If you know a Star Wars fan who loves chop sticks, then get these for him; you can get many of the characters chop sticks to be honest, but at the moment on Firebox they only seem to be stocking Luke Skywalker (blue), Darth Vader (red) and Kylo Ren. 

Minecraft Plastic Creeper Face Mug | From GAME 

Like pyjamas, who doesn't love getting a mug for Christmas? This is an ideal present for a work Secret Santa! A girl in our office has asked for a mug for her present as she doesn't yet have her own, this is an example of why gifts like this are so good! I thought this mug was pretty different and it's a Minecraft Creeper, so you can't go wrong! This can also apply to all ages, although I'm pretty sure this is for a younger person... :p 

Crash Bandicoot Uka Uka Keyring | From GAME

Finally we have our last gift on the list and it's one that I think anyone of any age will appreciate, especially if they went mad for Crash Bandicoot back in the day and even when it was remade and released on the PS4 this year! This isn't Crash himself, but it is Uka Uka, who will enable you to feel just like Crash in your daily activities! :p

So that is my geeky guy Christmas gift guide and sadly my final post on Sarah's blog (for now anyway!!! :p)!
