Best Christmas Gifts For Geeks Under £30

Hello and welcome to this very special Christmas gift SFX Bargains Round-Up. This week we’re doing something a little different; every week we try to bring you stuff as cheap as we can find it, but this week we’re bringing you all the best Christmas gift ideas we can with the proviso that everything listed here costs less than thirty English pounds or did at the time of posting.

So whether you’re looking for something for the geek in your life, stuff to add to your own Christmas list or you just feel like treating yourself after spending half your wage on your family, we hope you’ll find some helpful ideas below.

And seeing as we’re in the business of selling magazines, we should also mention that magazines are a great last minute gift idea. With Future’s extended family of titles, many with great Christmas deals in place, you could do a lot worse than offer the gift of a subscription this year.

Clothing and Accessories

Of course when it comes to T-shirts, we have to recommend the SFX Shop and the guys at Nerdoh, with their very clever design twists on well known franchises. Here are four of our faves (click on the images for links)…

(Both of the above have been reduced to £29.50 for Christmas especially so they could be in this feature! We love those Nerdoh guys!)


Of course you’ll need something to carry all those lovely Christmas presses you get in, and what better than this Millennium Falcon-shaped bag? It’s £10.01, again from Amazon?


Play has a selection of Game Of Thrones-themed T-shirts from £6.99 to £12.99, with all the various houses represented. Are you a Stark or Lovejoy?

IWantOneOfThose had this lovely Doctor Who dressing gown recreation of the 11th Doctor’s tweed jacket for £29.99. It even has elbow pads.

Asos had a selection of stylish Star Wars T-shirts for £30 each. The styles include Boba Fett, Princess Leia and Stormtrooper.

Over on Play we spotted these Superman onesies for the bargain price of £14.99.

Play also had a Captain America themed T-shirt for £6.49 and a Batman logo shirt for £6.99.
