You can't go wrong with Star Trek, Star Wars, or a toolkit with spudgers galore. Check out our top picks, sure to please any super-nerd.

Even the nerdiest nerd in your life could still use a Star Trek Electronic Door Chime, iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit, Fenix PD25 flashlight, or Millennium Falcon Quad drone. And if it wouldn't cause galactic warfare, put on Star Trek Pajamas or Sleep Shirt before snuggling inside a Tauntaun Sleeping Bag.

Motion sensors detect carbon-based lifeforms.

You can also set the sensor for a red alert.

It does the Communicator whistle too.

Bridge, this is the Captain. Is Yeoman Rand free tonight?
