I started a threa like this a few years ago and got some great suggestions for my Star Wars mad, war hammer playing, comic reading dh. grin

This year we are skint so are just doing stockings for about £30. So far I've got/ chosen

the authority graphic novel I'm really hoping he doesn't have it already!

this painting station for his models I have given up trying to stem the tide of tiny dwarves etc that keep sneaking into the house! hmm

And maybe a tshirt. He loves the threadless stuff but I really don't want to spend $9 on a $15 tshirt. So I'm looking for a uk based equivalent.

What is your geeky dh getting this year?

My husband is getting the new dungeons and dragons monster manual, new pokemon 3ds game and forbidden island board game.

I'm very excited by that painting station!

It's good isn't it! There's some for about £40 that have drawers as well. My only hope for the miniatures is to find enough storage so I don't have to look at them.

My dh is getting a Marvel calendar and a Marvel shower set (joke present), and a book about the history of Westeros.

I'm struggling beyond that because he's such an impulsive spender that anything he wants he has!

Found him a couple of t-shirts on Amazon, if that's any help! They were about £14 for both. I love Threadless but the shipping costs prevent me from spending as much as I'd like.

Also bought him a Rexel model of the Millennium Falcon and TOS Enterprise.

Thanks for the link to the painting station, I'm ordering that now! for my present from him

a trackpad and a squirrel nutcracker.

His big present is a bluray player, then a book of Star Wars paper planes spaceships from Book People, and some t-shirts from Qwertee.com. I've never used threadless, but think they may be similar-unusual t-shirts of various geeky themes?

They have 2 a day, they only stay on for a couple of days so you have to keep an eye. Don't know if they'll have any more Star Wars ones before Christmas but they do other themes (Dr Who/Pokemon/anime/Harry Potter/Half Life(with the robot and the little girl?)/Game of Thrones)

Mines getting a superman t-shirt, lego movie, lotr black gate lego set and some comics he wanted!

We've just found out I'm pregnant and all being well on mat leave for next Xmas so buying him a bit more this year as won't get much next !

Mine's already had his: the limited edition Blu Ray boxset of the old Adam West Batman TV series, with the toy Batmobile and some other bits. The box itself plays the theme tune if you press a button and my 3yo DS has been driving us fucking mental with it.

Today is Batman villains and dodgy Christmas designs here

fuzzpig Sun 30-Nov-14 14:17:22

I've got lots of DVDs for him but no idea what else yet!

GraysAnalogy Sun 30-Nov-14 14:20:22

Some batman memorabilia
I've got him some Spiderman vintage comics
A mini amp for his guitar

The only superhero DH really likes is silver surfer but there's not so much available beyond mugs and tshirts!

Suddengeekgirl Sun 30-Nov-14 14:55:29

Oooh I quite like this

robot tshirt

Suddengeekgirl Sun 30-Nov-14 15:00:00

Or this boba fett

I have got DS the geek box christmas box, but they are sold out - the subscription boxes are £15.99 and you get a tshirt and usually a pop vinyl (they are £10 each) in the box www.mygeekbox.co.uk/home

Dp is getting a geeky monopoly of some description - Dr who, star wars or marvel.

I've also got him a custom poster of his favourite graphic novel character - John Constantine.

In his stocking - iron man cufflinks and a new stark industries mug, if I can find one. He was heartbroken when DS1 broke his. And a supernatural pop vinyl - either castiel or crowley.

I love geek box. I'm going to save that for his birthday. Thanks smile

Ooo Noteven where did you get the iron Man cufflinks from?

They were like these ones. Also bought off ebay.

Last Exit to Nowhere sells amazing t-shirts for film geeks. My DH's entire wardrobe is pretty much made up of LETN t-shirts and hoodies grin

Actually I think you can get a t shirt with the arc reactor on for iron man lovers. Dps been hinting at that for a while

Davros Sun 30-Nov-14 19:01:46

Maybe not quite the same vein, but your men might like something from Philosophy Football (not just football-related)

ItIsntJustAPhase Sun 30-Nov-14 19:08:31

Love the LETN site, thanks for that.

Mine's only just had his birthday but am considering things like a smart watch (£££).

Would also consider films/film hamper, vouchers to go places like Bletchley Park, National Museum of Computing, Royal Mint, Dr Who exhibition etc.

Geeky socks also good. :-) Tesco or Asda had Dr Who socks recently.

TheWhispersOfTheGods Sun 30-Nov-14 19:12:08

DH is getting an arc reactor tshirt, a warmachine one if i can find it, a marvel mug set ( from Lidl this week!) and some other bits. I got him some star wars socks which were supposed to be for Christmas, but he ran out of socks amd found them so they are already in use! i like the idea of iron man cufflinks, might pick some up too!

I'm also going to get him an armband thingy for his airsoft kit and paint it, possibly with the Gallente insignia from Eve Online (his other wife hmm )
