30+ Cool Geek Gift Ideas & Gadgets For Fathers Day

So are you ready for Sunday, June 17, 2012? Do you know what day that is? It is Father’s Day!

I know you are prepared, because you are a good kid, wife, parent, etc. Sure. Sure you are. But we don’t judge, we know how hard it is to pick out gifts for people these days, especially geeks!! So since I am a geek, and a Father, I figured I would put this list together of a few things that I WOULD LOVE to get for father’s day (taking notes? paying attention? feel free to send me some of these haha)

When the holidays get closer I am sure that there will be a ton more awesome gadgets to drool over, like the new macbook pro & whatever else comes out from now until Christmas – but for right now, here is a quick list of some of the hottest & freshest gadgets & items out there that any geeky dad would love to get for fathers day! Enjoy!

Geek Toys For Dads Desk

As a dad with a desk, I love putting things on my desk. I would totally put these figures on my desk! I am pretty sure all the other geek dads out there love putting silly toys on their desk too. Did I say silly? I meant.. big.. strong.. handsome… manly toys. *grunts and pelvic thrusts*

Avengers Mini Papercraft

Paper Craft is Fun, Geeky, Cool, and often times FREE! (that is the best part right?) Let dad know you care by printing off some papercraft like these or trying to make some yourself, I would rock these on my desk as well! Avengers Assemble! (some assembly required lulz)

USB Mustache

Because. uh. MUSTACHE. Need I say more?

Pivot Power Adjustable Surge Protector

This is easily the coolest surge protector I have ever seen. I want one. I don’t even need one. but I want one. So functional!!!!

Xbox 360 Star Wars Edition + Kinect

A geek has got to game. and It is pretty hard to beat an Xbox 360 for that. Especially this epic star wars edition one – its so beautiful!!! R2-D2 & C3PO would be proud.

Lunatik + Tik Tok – Ipod Nano Watches

Anyone who knows me knows that I do not wear watches. I would never even buy a watch. But I WOULD buy this one that I found recently, TikTok + LunaTik. Basically they transform your iPod Nano into the world’s coolest muti-touch watch. So sexy.

Kinekt Design Gear Ring

Featured this here before, so you may recognize it – but its so damn cool, im featuring it again. bask in its awesomeness! Any guy who has this as his ‘wedding ring’ would never lose it again hahaha.

Pi Wall Clock – Geek, Nerd, Math Chic

Again, these days clocks are pretty novelty – but I really love this one. It is so aesthetically pleasing that I would put this up in my office or anywhere lol.

Apple MacBook Air

If you really love your dad you would get him one of these bad boys. Or a Macbook Pro. Epic computers! So thin!

C’mon Macbook! Eat a Sandwich!

Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season (2012)

Every true geek, enjoys the game of thrones. Winter is Coming.

Fred & Friends Tank Up

Geeks have a lot of work to do, so we need to re-fuel and stay awake – get dad one of these awesome cups to store his caffeinated beverage in! Cool Design!

Apple iPad

One of the hottest gifts on the market! Everyone loves Apple – and everyone wants an iPad (if they don’t already have one!). Get your dad into the mobile future!

Kindle Fire

Not as pricey as an iPad – but still cool! I would definitely love to play with one of these little gadgets for Fathers Day.

Fascinations Levitron Revolution Platform With EZ Float Technology

This is just, awesome. I want it on my desk. Who doesn’t want to be able to levitate junk? I want levitating junk.

Olly Moss Alternative Movie Posters & Prints

These go good in any space, for any geek. Love these alternative movie posters, they are so cool and well designed. the prints are actually fairly hard to get though, here are a few I found. So Classy!

Canon EOS Rebel T3 Digital SLR

Probably one of the cheapest AND best cameras on the market at the moment for the price – really nice one. Any geeky guy would love to have one of these things whether it be for pictures of the kids or pictures of their wicked geek gadgets & stuff they make! 😀

Geeky & Funny T-Shirts

    The Nano watches look really cool but to be honest I would like to receive any of them as a gift.

    The watch kits look amazing! I’ve seen people with the rubber ones before, but those look a lot more substantial. Very tempted.

      Yeah those things are awesome, I hate watches, and I want one haha. The story behind that company is so fascinating, it got started on kickstarter from nothing but an idea – now they are apple partners!!

    Wow, thank you for the great recommendations! I have quite a few fellows to shop for this Father’s Day, so I definitely think I’m set now after coming across your article! I do have my dad already taken care of with the Tailgater I ordered last week. He’s a big tailgater and camper, so I’m positive he’ll really enjoy it, since it will do all the work for him. It’s a portable satellite system that will broadcast all of his favorites in HD from any stadium parking lot or campground he goes to! He’s hinted a few times about having one too, after I told him about it when I played around with one at work for Dish, so I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to finally have one! Thanks again for the list and I wish you a Happy Father’s Day too! 🙂
