Are you one of those lucky people who has a geek dad? Do you need to find an appropriately geeky father’s day present for aforementioned dad? Well, you are in luck, because we here at 3 Chic Geeks will jump on positively any chance to do a gift guide, because that’s basically a long round of online window-shopping that we can write off as “work” and “serious business”. Armed with this guide and express shipping, you will most definitely not disappoint your father (probably). Also, later on in the post we’ll have the giveaway results announced!
Every geek could use a bit of classy geek decor around the house to show off their inner nerd to their visitors. Personally, we’re just a little bit in love with these Gambit and Wolverine posters from The Geekerie on Etsy. They’re $18 each, but you can get 10% off until the 9th by entering the code “DADSDAY” at checkout.
Does your father like to collect small things like action figures, jewelry, hearts of his enemies, etc? Give him a high-tech gadget for showing off his trophies – the Levitron Revolution Platform! For the low, low price of only $60, shipping & handling and your firstborn’s soul, it will magically make any object levitate above a platform with the power of magnets (not that we know how they work). Perfect for that evil genius who wants a hover Loki action figure on his desk.
Does the father in your life require a tie for mysterious, unnamed purposes? Well… We’re not sure what a tie is used for normally, to be quite honest, but Supernatural fanfiction leads us to believe ties can be very, very exciting – especially if there’s a cute angel somewhere in the mix. While we don’t want to know what your dad will use a tie for, here’s a few really stylish options:
Three Atoms silk-screened necktie, $30, by IceOrchid
The 8-bit Tie, $15, by ThinkGeek.com
Blade Runner inspired replicant necktie, $24, by binarywinter
Fantastic Four Marvel Comic Book Tie, $25, by BeardedUnicorn
TARDIS tie, $21, by PrintMyClothing
Legend of Zelda pixel hearts tie clip, $23, by TheLittleSaint
When shopping for a geek, it’s safe to assume they could use another tee in the fandom of their choice. We’ve picked out a few of our favorite designs; chances are, the paternal parental unit in your life will also find these appealing.
Darth Vader “I am your father” tee, $24, by saintsdesigns
Winter’s Coming tee, $26, by MeganLara
Pinkie Pie’s Sugarcube Corner, $25, by Rachael Thomas
Tetris Skyline tee, $25, by Reece Ward
The Cathedral of the Serenity tee, $25, by girardin27
The Prancing Pony, $24, by thehookshot
Remember, if you’re buying from Redbubble between June 11th and 13th, use the code “COMICTEES13” at checkout to get a 10% discount on your purchase.
If you’ve got the cash to burn, and really want to impress your Lord of the Rings obsessed father? Get him the ring of Barahir replica, which was worn by Aragorn in the movies. Isn’t it foxy? A Slytherin would also probably really like the ring, because snakes. Snakes are always a good reason for things. And it’s only like, a hundred and fifty five bucks or something. If your dad invented Toaster Strudel, you can probably afford to buy this for him.
Kinda sorta broke, but still need to get your dad something awesome? Here’s a roundup of great geeky gifts under $20 that your father (and pretty much everyone else in your life) will really appreciate.
Set of 4 BioShock Infinite Columbia Propaganda Postcards, $14, by SoSticky
Wonder Woman iPhone 4s case, $10, by TheGeekForge
Red Riding Hood and the Bad Wolf print, $16, by ParodiesLost

“ABIDE” – The Dude for President Big Lebowski sticker, $3 by Ant101
Set of 5 Alan Turing postcards, $7, by meganlee
Are you really, really broke? Well, you can always invest in a roll of Avengers duct tape and make a duct tape wallet. Or a prom dress. For your dad. Go ahead, it’s okay, we totally will not judge you for that. AT ALL.
Now, if you follow the blog, you might remember us having an Iron Man 3 poster giveaway earlier this week. Well, it’s time for the one lucky winner to be announced. Are you excited?
Since we’re poor, we copy-pasted the names of each commenter into Random.org’s List Randomizer and hit “go”. Check out the screenshot for proof:
And the winning comment is:
Congratulations, Kenzie-Lou! We are sending you a message the moment this post is published. For the rest of you that didn’t win, don’t despair – we have more posters stashed away, and we are going to do so pretty soon… so look forward to it!
