It’s notoriously hard to find gifts for Dad, especially if he’s a little geeky. The gifts you can afford (gift cards, socks…) seem too impersonal, but you can’t shell out the cash for the things you know he’ll love, either. What can you do?
Don’t fret! We’ve got some ideas for you. Whether it’s for his birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day or just because, here are some awesome geeky gifts that Dad will absolutely love.
Work requires intense focus and concentration. Help Dad get in the zone with a pair of awesome noise-cancelling headphones. Perfect for filling the ears with music, or to discourage co-workers from unnecessary interruptions. Your father will surely thank you for the increase in his productivity!
If your Dad finds himself frequently needing to jot things down, or he’s in a meeting where he needs to brainstorm a complicated function, then the scramble to find pencil and paper could cost him precious time. And jotting it down on his phone screen won’t make it easily visible by everyone else! Help him get his thoughts together with his own portable dry-erase whiteboard. Sketching programs has never been easier!
T-Shirt or Hoodie
Geeky Dads love to show off their hobbies. Nerd tees and hoodies are an essential part of their personality. If you’re looking for a gift that Dad will love, then give him something he can use to express his love, too.
Is your Dad an outstanding Python developer? Then why not surprise him with a Pythonic T-shirt or hoodie? Feel free to check out our line of Python apparel. These Pythonic designs could be just what Dad needs to show off his awesome programming skills.
For the Dads who have to look professional but can’t help squeezing in a little bit of pizzazz. A tie is the perfect way to introduce a subtle twinge of personality into what can quickly become a routine look. Help your Dad stand out with these circuit board ties, available on Etsy.
There’s a whole other subculture out there for geeks who love to read. Is your Dad one of them? Then a nerdy book could be just the right gift for him!
If he’s looking to go deeper into programming, then find a book that will help him accomplish that goal. Python Tricks, for example, would be a great resource for any Dad looking to skyrocket his Python skills. Want to geek it up with your old man? Then get a copy of Geek Dad and nerd out together! You’re sure to create a lifetime of fun memories. And who knows, you may turn into a geeky parent yourself someday.
There’s nothing like a fresh pot of coffee to wake you up in the morning, or a warm cup of tea to relax you before bed. Even geeky Dads like to indulge in these simple pleasures. But that doesn’t mean he has to do it like everyone else!
Help him channel his inner nerd by extending the geekery to even these small moments. Our line of geeky mugs are sure to put a smile on his face.
Dads can be very particular about their toys, as they should be: if you want your prized possessions to last a long while, then you’d better take good care of them! Help Dad out by providing him with the items he’ll need to keep his electronics spick and span. These cleansers are exactly what he needs to get the job done.
Laptop stickers are a strange facet of geek culture. Who would guess that grown men and women would love to pepper their valuables with sticky advertisements? But stickering your laptop is a fun pastime that many in the tech industry love to partake in.
If your Dad loves Python, then help him express that love with a sticker! Here at Nerdlettering, we have dozens of designs for you to choose from, so go check them out!
