Hey! So I am trying to think of some unique christmas gifts for my nerdy boyfriend and i was wondering if you guys could help me out. Our budget is going to be around $30.

I already got him part of his gift which was an Adroid plush
http://www.amazon.co...ils_o01_s00_i00 (the green one) haha.

He does not like nerdy tshirts, he is really picky when it comes to clothes. I am having trouble thinking of some cool useful nerdy things he would like that are affordable. Any ideas?

Any video games he's wanted for a while? Probably within budget from eBay.

you should surf around Think Geek for a bit - they have some great stuff... just choose the type of sci-fi that he likes (starwars, game of thrones, lego, etc). The gifts are unique - he's sure to love anything from there.

the gifts are not necessary to be tech-related if the person is nerdy, you may choose anything you like.

Even if you BF is nerdy, as am I. I wouldn`t buy him exclusively nerdy items. Get him some sweets, a few cans of juice (weird stuff), some nice boxers/briefs. Maybe a USB watch, just normal guy stuff.

Does he have other interests? Is he an artists, does he like make music.

If hes a super nerd then what are his fav movies/books/fantasy ip, play to what you know hes into, and if you dont know that then stop being a bad GF and take interest :p
