With two months to Christmas, it may be time to start thinking of gifts, especially with most people shopping online. I can almost say with certainty that shipping companies are gonna be more than a little busy this holiday season. To avoid the stress of whether your package will arrive on time, I suggest early shopping at your favorite online stores.
To help with all the choices, I have created a list of the top 2020 Holiday gifts for the geeks in our lives. Being a geek myself, I feel like these will be at the top of many people’s lists. And for those who don’t create a list (they know who they are), there is always a Loot Crate or Space and Beyond box that will be a nice surprise. Each comes with 5 to 7 items making them a gift that keeps on giving.
The items listed below all contain links to make finding them a breeze. Disclosure: The Amazon links are all affiliate links. This means I get a little something when you purchase through my links. Thank you in advance. Every little bit helps keep this blog alive and kicking with awesome printables, gift ideas, and more.
Now on to the Gifts!
1. Loot Crate Box
Loot Crate is an amazing box that all geeks will enjoy. With each unboxing comes exclusive collectibles and surprises geeks, like myself, will love! I did an unboxing of a Loot Crate and let me just say…AMAZING. What is most impressive about Loot Crate is that they have different themes one can purchase. This allows the gifter to match the needs of the giftee perfectly. At this moment there are Loot Crates for:
- Breakfast Club
- Star Trek
- Harry Potter
- Hello Kitty
- Loot Wear
- Elder Scrolls
- and more!
Check out Loot Crate’s website for more details, lists, and other geeky items. I think this site may just check off everyone’s Christmas List.
2. The Child… or anything Mandalorian
The Mandalorian’s new season is starting Oct 30 and will continue through December. This makes anything Mandalorian a must have for Christmas. The Child, or better known as Baby Yoda, is extremely popular. It is almost a guarantee that getting a Baby Yoda gift will bring a huge smile. My favorite Baby Yoda item is the 11-inch plush/beanbag Baby Yoda figure from Mattel.
The Other Popular Baby Yoda Toy is the “Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition “AKA Baby Yoda” with Over 25 Sound and Motion Combinations, ” Almost always sold out, you will be lucky to get your hands on this little gem. You may also be able to find him on shopdisney.com.
About the Animatronic Edition:
He may look like “Baby Yoda,” but this lovable creature is called The Child – and now you can become his protector with this animatronic toy from Star Wars. Touching the top of The Child Animatronic Edition’s head activates over 25 sound and motion combinations, including happy and excited sounds, giggles, babbles, and more, all while the figure’s head moves up and down, ears move back and forth, and eyes open and close. Boys and girls ages 4 and up can pretend to harness the power of the Force as The Child toy closes its eyes, raises its arm, and sighs as if exerting a great amount of energy.

3. Space and Beyond Box
This box is another one of those surprise boxes that makes a perfect gift to all the space and science geeks. However, unlike other surprise boxes, Space and Beyond Box will tell you what you are getting as the shipping day gets closer. I gave this as a gift to my mom and her first box contained a piece of a meteorite in a cool frame, a t-shirt, a comet pen, a couple of awesome photos, and a magazine. It certainly was $80 worth of items for only $50.
The Next big box will feature Black Holes. I have no idea how they will incorporate that awesomeness, but I do know there will be a magazine all about black holes, probably a photo of the first picture of a black hole, and maybe a poster. The rest is still a surprise.
4. Star Light Galaxy Projector for Bedroom
While the Star Light Galaxy Projector is geared towards kids, I think this is also a great toy for all ages. It provides an epic light show on the ceiling and is Alexa and Google Assistant activated. The best part about this item is that it has a soothing galaxy light that calms the senses for kids and adults. The stress of the day dissipates into outer space. This item features:
- A STAR FILLED GALAXY IN YOUR ROOM. Get the most relaxing visuals from this galaxy projector that’s like a portable planetarium. It feels like you’re drifting calmly into space at night.
- VAST NEBULA CLOUD BACKGROUNDS TO CHOOSE FROM. With 16.7million Colors behind green stars that float across your ceiling and walls & Multiple Brightness Settings, you’ll never run out of options with this multiple starlight projector.

5. Nintendo Switch Lite
Nintendo Switch Lite is a new version of the Nintendo Switch system that’s optimized for personal, handheld play. It is a small and light Nintendo Switch system with a built-in +Control Pad, and a sleek, unibody design. I highly suggest this system for all the Geeky Gamers out there. It makes a perfect gift. Be sure to add games.
6. Funko Pop! Amazon Exclusive 6 Inch Wampa Vinyl Figure
Throughout 2020, 6 exclusive figures will be available for purchase, starting with The Wampa to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Empire Strikes Back. All 6 figures will nest into the next to form one larger set piece recreating the opening scene from Empire Strikes Back. The Wampa is an Amazon exclusive.
The Wampa is one of my favorite creatures from Star Wars and I think it would make a wonderful gift for any Star Wars fan. It had to make the Christmas Geek Gift List.
7. Smash Up Card Game
Smash up is a collectible card game where you select two different factions to battle your friends \. The goal of the game is to collect victory points, be the first to reach a certain amount and win. Each faction has different capabilities. Alderac Entertainment Group, the creators of Smash Up, are releasing a new set of Smash Up factions.

Smash Up: Marvel will allow seasoned players and newcomers of all ages to join the limitless clashing with comic mainstays, such as the vigilant members of The Ultimates and criminal masterminds HYDRA as two of eight factions leading the charge!
