Father’s Day Gift Guide – Gifts for the Nerdy Dad

My husband is an amazing dad. He’s so great with kids! There’s nothing he loves more than coming home from work, putting on one of his superhero t-shirts, and playing with the kids for hours. I’m pretty sure the reason that he’s such a good dad is because he’s still a kid at heart. Seriously. He has more action figures than Graham does!

Yes, my husband is a nerd. A movie buff, comic book-loving, electronic obsessed nerd. But I’m pretty dorky myself (#disneynerd) so I guess that’s why we get along so well?

Picture circa 2007 – before we had smart phones. Back when you had to turn your camera around, point, and shoot and hope that you’re getting both faces in the frame!


So if you have a lovable nerdy husband, just like mine, here is my Father’s Day Gift Guide – Gifts for the Nerdy Dad.

1. Star Wars: The Black Series Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber

It’s every young boy’s (or 33-year-old man’s) dream to own a real lightsaber. And this one is a close as it gets! Realistic light effects, authentic movie sound effects, and it even includes a stand for the ultimate collectability! Batteries not included.

The Walking Dead: Compendium One


The first 8 volumes of the graphic novel that the gruesome TV show is based on in paperback form! Over 1,000 pages of survival horror. Just don’t let your your kids see it – scary!

Marvel Avengers Father’s Day Everyday Heroes Graphic T-Shirt

Josh already owns quite a collection of super hero t-shirts, but he doesn’t have this one yet! The shirt is 100% cotton and machine washable, so baby spit-up washes right out. Available in 5 different colors.

Marvel Legends Iron Man Electronic Helmet

Every dad NEEDS one of these. I’m not sure how they will get through life without their very own Iron Man helmet, complete with LED light up eyes, sound effects, and detachable magnetized face-plate! Only $90 – a steal! Just think of all the places Dad will wear it! This is a must-have for every father. (Is the sarcasm coming through?)

Universal Magnetic Car Mount – Limited Hero Addition 

This is actually pretty neat – it’s a car mount for your phone. It connects to your dashboard and always keeps your phone visible and in reach. So your husband can’t use the excuse “I didn’t see your text!” when he arrives home without the extra diapers you asked him to pick up on the way.


Batman: The Dark Knight Returns 30th Anniversary Edition

Another gruesome paperback graphic novel! (Side note – I had my husband proof this post and he made me change word “comic book” to “graphic novel.” Just like I know to say “action figure” and not “doll.” Ha!) Anyway, Josh says that is “arguably the best super hero graphic novel ever written.” So your nerdy husband will love it.

Marvel Thor’s Hammer Sculpted Bottle Opener

“Whosoever holds this hammer, if he is worthy, shall possess the power of BEER!” Cute bottle opener for our nerdy, drinking dads.

Commercial 6-Ounce Kettle Popcorn Cart

Now THIS is a gift the entire family can enjoy. Josh has a man-cave in the basement, set up as a movie room. We love having family movie nights down there, and what goes great with a movie? Fresh popcorn! Yummy!
