Geeky Star Trek Gifts

If there is one thing a Star Trek fan hates more than Khan Noonien Singh, it’s being confused with a Star Wars fan. Star Trek fans or Trekkies as they like calling themselves have been around for much longer than Star Wars fans and that's why I can understand where their anger comes from. That being said, there are quite a few gifts you can get for a Trekkie this winter. In this article, I am going to go through some of the most popular Star Trek geek gifts:

1. Posters and stickers- This is probably the most basic gift you can give any Star Trek fan. These sticks and posters let fans decorate their rooms with various images and scenes from the series over the years. This is the cheapest souvenir you could get and therefore, it should be reserved for acquaintances and colleagues and is not ideal for someone close to you.

2. Costumes- Even though you might not believe in dressing up unless it's Halloween, Trekkies like to dress up in Star Trek costumes all the time. It is unheard of to show up for a Star Trek convention without a Star Trek costume. There are many costumes to choose from and you will surely be able to find something worthwhile if you search the internet for a few minutes.

3. DVD's, books & magazines- These are ideal nerd gifts for people that don't already own them. Then again, no Star Trek fan will ever refuse a DVD, book or magazine either. With so many shows in its almost 50 year existence, you will certainly be able to find something worth gifting. There are many DVD's which offer special footage and behind the scenes images. These might cost a little more, but they are definitely worth it.

So you see there is a wide range of Star Trek souvenir gift items which you can purchase for a Star Trek fan. And it doesn't really matter whether he/she is 10 years old or 50, their love for Star Trek never dies. And with the recent success of Star Trek: Into the Darkness this year, the number of people that start following the series will undoubtedly increase. You really can't go wrong with such a well thought out gift. Just ensure the person you buy it for really is a fan of the series. After all, there is no point in handing over a Star Trek uniform to someone who doesn't even know what it is.
