What Makes Someone a Geek?

Each person has their own definition of the word “geek”. If we were to define it in a general way, we’d say a geek is someone who has an above-average interest in something that’s outside of mainstream culture or is a specific subculture.

For example you can like Spiderman, like thousands of kids do around the world. And there are adults who like the web-slinging superhero as well. But just liking Spiderman doesn’t make you a geek. Knowing all the comics, having merch that exceeds the one or two things someone else might have and spending time collecting more merch and knowledge would.

Some other people would define a geek just by the amount of energy they expend on a certain topic. For example you could say we’re geek-geeks. We love geeks (and we self-identify as them) but more than that, we’ve created an entire business around them.

Finally, let’s look at the verb version, which is to “geek out”. Most people use that to mean they get excited over something other people don’t find riveting, such as … the specific models of ships in Star Wars.

Or French history, or tech – it doesn’t have to be in the science subculture to be geeky!

What Kind of Gifts Do Nerds Like?

Again, we come back to the idea that being a nerd or a geek means something different to each person. If you want to get them something along those lines – shop at a geek-friendly retailer. You want to find things that are useful in daily life, but that play to their specific obsession.

Let’s say your friend is a gardening-geek. They probably don’t need another shirt with plants on it, but you can’t find a plant they don’t already own. Get them something that will help them foster their plants – like a Verdmo Wireless Soil Moisture Sensor.

It’s still plant themed, and it won’t sit collecting dust on a shelf.

Factors When Buying Geek Gifts

You want to make sure your geek gift is three things:

  1. Related to the thing they nerd out over (duh). If they’re obsessed with Spiderman, don’t get them something Superman-themed. It’s not the same thing!
  2. It needs to be relatively useful. Like our example of the plant water moisture checker, you want to get them something that isn’t (necessarily) in the collectibles category. Those are things that don’t get looked at often, though they do collect value over time.
  3. Finally, it needs to be a little out-of-the-box. Your friend probably already has a Spiderman lunchbox, or socks, or plates – you know their level of interest best. Try to find them something they don’t already have – but don’t pull your hair out over it.

Two of a good thing is sometimes just that – a good thing! We hope this guide to nerd gifts was helpful! If you have any suggestions please submit a product here.
