5 Father's Day Gifts For 'The Nerd' Dad

By: Justin Kierstead

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope was released in 1977. The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was released in 1985. Comic books/graphic novels have been around for centuries. So that means that there are a bunch of dads out there who grew up reading comics, watching sci-fi movies, playing video games and indulging in all things ‘nerd.’ Today’s gift guide installment is for the dad in your life who’s a nerd at heart. The dad who loves sci-fi, comic books, video games, cult classic movies and latest gizmos and gadgets.

1.       NES Game Cartridge Flask ($20)


Your dad likes alcohol. Your dad likes the NES. Honor your dad’s two true loves (excluding you, of course) and pick up one of these nostalgic takes on a flask.  

2.       Loot crate subscription ($28/month) 

It’s the gift that keeps on giving. The excitement of opening a nerd themed gift every month for a year is just what the doctor ordered. These epic crates come packed full of anything and everything nerd related. Each month they provide a different theme to suit each and every dad’s taste. The crates are typically worth $40+ retail, so they give you a break on the price too. Plus, you’re automatically entered into the monthly mega crate draw worth over $2,000!

3.       The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ($70)


It’s being touted as one of the best RPG’s ever made and it was released less than a month ago. If your dad is a gamer, this is a sure fire pick up.

4.       Death Star Bluetooth Speaker ($60)


Pretty much the coolest Bluetooth speaker out there. Now dad can listen to the imperial death march and look cool doing it.
