Christmas is almost upon us, the time which lends color, joy and celebration to the end of the year. It’s certainly required as the weather is bleak and the environment is drab in the winter conditions. This is the time of relaxing with family, overindulging in food, religious reflection (if applicable,) and, of course, gifts.
It’s likely you have already thought of, and maybe even purchased the gifts you intend to shower your family with come the special day. What’s less likely is you planning to gift yourself this Christmas. This must be done. After all, working hard for a year certainly warrants it. For us geeks, this can mean acquiring that niche item you’ve had your eye on for some time, which can only be found in a certain comic book store or online private retailer.
If you’re struggling for ideas, we have collated a list of the three most awesome, geeky gifts to enjoy this Christmas. After all, spurring on that inner child is something we all must do. On the day itself, floods of memories of you as a child opening your boxes and playing with toys will resurface. You’re welcome in advance.
Get Yourself A Drone
We all know the pleasures of racing an RC car around our living rooms as children. This was before the days of highly fun smooth-feeling controllable drones. Just imagine the chaos you could have caused with one of these as a kid. Now is the time to catch up on that chaos as an adult. If you have yard space or access to a park, this could help melt away hours in fun and pretend aerial combat. Check out rchobbyreview.com for the best drones you can pick up today. Even awesome toys like this should be backed up with wise purchasing decisions.
Get A Nintendo Switch
If your family haven’t purchased one of these yet, now could be the time. The launch library of games has grown to encompass both Zelda, Splatoon, Mario and even Skyrim. If you’re looking to spend hours in front of your television or in your bedroom gaming, a portable and dedicated system like this can help you relive those days of your gaming youth, but in a much more graphically impressive way. Experiencing strides made in twenty years of game design can truly be a mind-blowing experience.
Get An Airsoft Pass/Rifle
We all remember the days running around our local woods with our friends pretending to be army men or cool cowboys. The grown-up version of that is airsoft, and parks have sprung up and down the country with some seriously neat venues for experiencing the game. It’s similar to paintball, but with better and more accurate weaponry and a higher tactical consideration. If you’re into squad-based games, or the art of faux military fun, then this could be just for you. Get yourself a basic weapon and outfit, a license pass for your local grounds, invite a couple friends and experience something truly memorable.
With these gifts, your inner child will surely be satiated this Christmas.
