From Cinematic Sci-Fi Clothing to Galactic Beach Towels

Gifts for the nerd have to honor their interests: sci-fi, gaming and superheroes.

Nerds are cooler than ever these days. That statement might seem counter-intuitive, but it's true. "Nerd" is no longer an insult, nor does it exclusively refer to a computer-obsessed 26-year-old who lives in his mom's basement. There are plenty of hot nerds out there! Sure, they might prefer video games to small talk, but that doesn't mean that they're totally socially inept either. I'm thinking of the O.C.'s Seth Cohen, a lovable geek with a fast-talking charm that swept girls all over the nation off their feet.

This year, gift the nerd in your life with everything from superhero wrist warmers to retro gamer blinds to windable droid toys.
