This week, I’ll share with you a few more suggestions for gifts priced under $300. Take a look and enjoy. You might find just the right gift to give that special someone.
GIFTS LESS THAN $300
One of the top selling albums of all-time. It’s also a fantastic album of great songs once you get past the highly overplayed Enter Sandman & Unforgiven. Instead listen for the other standout tracks like Of Wolf & Man, Don’t Tread on Me and many more. A must for any Metallica fan.
I absolutely love this soundtrack by the amazing Christopher Young. It is both haunting and pulse pounding as the sense of dread builds throughout this album. It also has the fantastic Mondo artwork to boot. Pinhead never looked so good.
Okay, this one’s a little odd. But what can I say? I really like Godzilla. Why not spice up your humidifier game with this kick-ass Godzilla! It even has led lights to help make the mist look like his atomic breath.
The Big Smoke Art Print – $80.00
We came across artist Nyco Rudolph back at Fan Expo 2017 this past summer. He is famous for his Bear prints but he really loves doing these noir pieces as well. It’s a fine looking piece of art that would look great on your wall.
For the table top gamer of the RPG variety, I found these spectacular metal dice that could be weapons themselves. Nothing will make you feel better rolling crit when tossing these down. I’ve seen metal dice before but these are really beautifully designed.
Have a handy man who happens to be a Thor fan? Then this is a fun gift give them: a Mjölnir Toolbox Set. This is a pretty handy tool set that is also good to have around when the Frost Giants try to invade!
As a fan of space and the NASA program, this latest entry in the LEGO universe celebrating the Apollo rocket missions is awesome. Not just in historical significance but in sheer size at over 3 feet long when fully assembled. Can also be separated and shown in it’s sections as well.
When i heard about this little gizmo, I was intrigued. A new toy robot that will learn as you play with it but also gives you attitude when its frustrated or chirps happily when it succeeds. A nice upgrade to the robot toys of our childhood.
I’m a huge fan of Star Wars. I’m especially a fan of John Williams stunning score. The opening fanfare of Star Wars hits you in the gut and from there drags you across the universe with a farmboy, old man and scoundrel as they poorly attempt to save the Princess and defeat the Empire’s latest super weapon. A perfect gift for Star Wars fans like myself who also appreciate music and vinyl.
This figure springs from the mythos line of designs showing characters in the Star Wars universe from non canon stories. Things we have never seen on screen… yet. If this is what could be for the long rumoured Obi-Wan movie, I’m totally on board. I can’t wait to watch something that looks as cool as this figure!
So that’s just a few more suggestions for the nerd or geek on your shopping list. Next week, Andrew will be bringing you Stocking Stuffer suggestions. Be sure to check it out.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
