If your Geeky Dad has nostalgia for the wonder of an old video game arcade, then bringing back a machine from the past might be just the present you're looking for! Sure, you can play all of the latest games on your console with friends around the world, but somehow it's not the same as mashing buttons and rubbing shoulders with your friends playing Rampage on an arcade machine!
Turn your Geeky Dad's home computer into a rainbow colored playground by upgrading his keyboard and mouse. All of the LED lights are programmable to your preference and activity, which can make normal web browsing fun and MMO-game play exhilarating!

Experiences are always the perfect gift for the Dad that has everything... and he definitely doesn't have a Chess Grandmaster! IfOnly has multiple packages across the country that provide lessons with Chess Grandmasters to teach the intricacies of the game and lend your Dad a few tips. This can be the gift that keeps on giving, unless you're the one always losing to Dad at chess!
There is an indescribable magic about being able to "print" in 3D, and having that capacity in your home is any Geeky Dad's dream! There are plentiful patterns and files to download online to use, or if your Dad is super skillful he can create and modify his own creations! This printer is one of the smallest on the market, so if your Dad takes a liking to it you can upgrade to a bigger model next year!

Technology has come quite a long way in the past few years, but we still don't travel in space or have the ability to get "beamed" from here to there.

Even if your Geeky Dad is more of a stay-at-home kinda guy, you might be able to lure him into an outdoor picnic via his Star Wars fandom. This picnic and cheeseboard set are the perfect way to enjoy a summer day in the park, but you'll have to pack your own Blue Milk!
If you don't want to get your Geeky Dad another "thing" to clutter up the house, then a message from their favorite local Comic-Con celebrity guest might be what you're looking for! You can buy a message for your Dad from celebrities like Jennifer Hale, who is "the most prolific [female] video game voice actor" in the business, or everyone's favorite Slytherin at Hogwarts, Tom Felton. You know they'll love showing it off to their friends, and it's so much better than yet another tie.
Has your Geeky Dad watched all of the Marvel movies but hasn't picked up a comic book in years?
