Welcome to the third gift guide in the Ultimate Gift Guide series for geeks! This time I’m introducing you to buying gifts for gamer geeks. If you missed the introduction post  here’s a reminder of what an academic nerd is: Academic nerds are what most people think when you say ‘nerd’, and most geeks attribute nerdiness to academics and knowledge.

I’ll be leaving out technology, art and English as I’ll be covering those in the guides for Tech Nerds, Art Geeks and Book and Writer Geeks respectively. Some academic nerdsRead More →

Now that you’ve worked out that your geek is a gamer the next important thing to do is to find out which device they use if they are a video game player. This is especially important if you are going to get them a new game (I would suggest using their wish list so you do not buy one they already have) or a gift card (see below for details).

Fred's Box, subscription box for kids (and geeks!) Review

I have always wanted to receive a subscription box and so when the lovely team at Fred’s Box contacted me to offer me the chance to review one, I snapped up the chance! I had hoped to use this as a good excuse to begin my foray into the world of videos via an unboxing video, but sadly my body has decided not to comply with that request. I was good though! I sat on the closed box for a while before having to admit defeat and open it. I may still do a video after the fact, for now I hope you enjoy myRead More →
