Best Geeky Stocking Stuffers from ThinkGeek.com

Plush 2If I reminded you that Christmas was just around the corner, would you smack me for stating the obvious? Probably. And I probably wouldn’t blame you.

No doubt you already have an idea of what kinds of BIG presents you’re giving your kids (or maybe you’ve already bought them, you crazy go-getter you!), but what about the little things to pile high your little geek’s stocking?

Well, if you’re anything like me, you wait until the last minute because you think “Hey, what’s the big deal? It’s just little stuff I can pick up anywhere!”

Boy, I hope you’re not like me.

But just in case you are, here’s a smack I give to you: it’s my rundown of the coolest stocking stuffer gifts available from that purveyor of perfectly precious nerdery, Think Geek. This site is full-to-brimming with the grandest geek gifts known to man. Or woman. Or child. Or hobbit. Or anyone.

Seriously, I dare you to look at the list below and not pick one of these items up. (Notice how I didn’t say it had to be for your kid?) They are that awesome.

Super Stocking-Stuffed Sweetness from Think Geek

There’s just too much awesome here to put into one long list–it’d make your brain bust. So, to help that not happen, I’ve divided my picks into three categories:

  • Clothes and Such – Items to wear on your feet, on your shirt, on your head, and around your jaw (don’t worry, it’s a fake beard and not a torture device…wait, those are mutually exclusive, right?)
  • Tools of a Kind – I’m not saying they’re all practical tools, but they are tools. Of a kind. Often that “kind” is imaginative. Which makes them even more awesome.
  • Things of Pure Play – No other category suits these items better than the word PLAY. These are gifts whose only purpose is to bring smiles and create dreams of impossible wonder. They are true PLAY things, and every geeky kid needs them.

Enough! No more build up, no more waiting! Here are my picks for the coolest stocking-stuffers from the magic vaults of Think Geek!

Clothes and Such

Dwarven Beard Hats ($35.99)

Granted, you might need an unusually large stocking to fit one of these guys in it, but it’s totally worth expanding the sock’s acreage to fit it! These are just…unspeakably awesome.
