Nerdy Gift Ideas

These nerdy gift ideas and novelties will get a chuckle from even the coolest guys and gals.

There are some pretty awesome things about being a nerd, and a few not-so-awesome things. The wedgies and bathroom confrontations in middle school are certainly not the high point of any nerds life. But later in life, when we’re our former bullies boss it can put the awkward teenage years into perspective. Because nerds are often ahead of their time. In high school, nerds are obsessing over their hobbies, writing code, reading, and doing other things that will often make them wealthy adults.

Fortunately, that disposable income in adulthood can come with some perks. One of my personal favorites is all the nerdy novelties that once can acquire. Some of our favorites are listed below.

Thumb Drive

Don’t be alarmed. This isn’t a real thumb. But it is a pretty nerdy, and maybe even a little on the weird side, novelty that any nerd would be glad to call their own. It is only 4gb, and in a day an age where you can get  128 GB USB Drive for around $40, $7.50 for this thing does seem a little steep.
