For the Dice Roller:

The Legend of Drizzt: A D&D Board Game – $49.99

Something that is true about playing D&D is that Wizards of the Coast is always trying to make a dollar, and therefore is constantly publishing new stuff. If there’s a DM or player in your life- they can either uses the pre-made campaign scenarios or if they play like I do (no pre-made scenarios) they can still use the helpful tokens, counters and maps.

 For Amateur Youtube Filmaker:
Olloclip – $69.99
This handy little device turns your iPhone camera into a bonafide video camera lens, capable of all sorts of shots including wide angle. If there’s a vlogger in your life, this means they can always tape on the go. The above link is to the iPhone 4G &4Gs model, here’s the iPhone 5 Olloclip.
For the Comic Buff:
DC Comics: The New 52 Collection – $96.36 (Barnes & Noble Sale)
Last year, DC relaunched 52 of it’s famous franchises in an explosion of comic crazy. This collection includes all of the #1 issues for each series. That’s over 1,000 pages of action hero, comic panel goodness!
For The Forever Kid:
As far as I am concerned, you can never be too old for LEGO playsets. I actually asked for two for Christmas last year, and I love them. Anyways, if there is a nerd in your life who is either a brick-head or an AFoL (Adult Fan of LEGO) get them this awesome play set from the new Hobbit movie.
For The Sci-Fi/Gamer Nerd Combo:
EVE online is one of the most amazing gaming achievements ever. A massive, online player galaxy provides the ultimate sandbox – this is like no game you’ve ever played on your computer. The world is so real, CCP had to hire a real economist to monitor the game’s economy. It’s incredible, and very addictive. A subscription could be the perfect gift for your friend tired of WoW or totally obsessed with Firefly. Whichever!
For If You’re Royally Screwed Because You Waited Too Late:
ThinkGeek Certificate – $ However Generous Your are Feeling
ThinkGeek is a great website with a whole host of gifts. If you either have no idea what to buy and/or you don’t have time to have anything shipped – a gift certificate from ThinkGeek could be the answer you are looking for!
Good luck shopping!
