Geek gifts for dads - Father's Day Gift Guide
Like/share this post for a chance to enter our $500 Father's Day giveaway! Details below.
Geek gifts may be some of our favorite Father's Day gifts to shop for. (We love our cool geeky dads!) Here, some super fun gift ideas if the dad on your list isn't quite the yachting in Greenwich while wearing an ascot type.
Spell out Happy Father's Day using the periodic chart with this geeky Father's Day Card
that comes with a custom tie tack. ($13 at Shop Gibberish; $4.50 for just the card)
Even the geekiest of dads probably love time with the kids more than with his computer. In which case, grab the Geek Dad book
by Wired columnist Ken Denmeade, which features dozens of family-friendly activities they can do together, from the simple to ready for Burning Man, Dad!
($?? at amazon)
This Avengers Cologne Set
is absolutely awesome, and comes with four mini colognes each inspired
by four lead Avengers. Don't worry--"Smash" smells more like bergamot
and tarragon than the actual Hulk. ($59 at Think Geek)
A tie for Father's Day? Not quite as traditional when it's this circuit board necktie
. Equally suited for Blog World Expo, or your daughter's graduation from MIT.
($30 at Scatterbrain Ties)
We also love the Swipe ties for gadget-lovers; they're made from a fabric that's actually meant to be used to clean your screen! ($34.95 on sale at Swipe)
For the dad who has everything, there's no way he already has a ukelele. Or if he does (sheesh), there's no way he has an atom ukelele
. These are handmade to order out of maple and utterly gorgeous. ($650 from Paul Celentano)
A real live spy pen
. Admit it, he totally needs this. ($29.97 at the Discovery Channel Store)
While we've covered a whole bunch of great gifts for new dads
, we'd be remiss if we didn't add in this awesome Carl Sagan daddy and me set
. The baby onesie starts at 3m and goes up to 6T t-shirts for those future scientists of the world. ($38 at baby wit)
Star Wars fans will love the Star Wars Darth Vader and Son book
which is just meant for Father's Day giving. ($14.95 at Chronicle Books)
While you're at it, throw in this vinyl I'm your Daddy Star Wars iPhone 4 skin
. ($9.95 from Skunkwraps)
: Awesome. ($150/hour from cloud 9 living, or find classes in your area)
