Father’s Day for the Geek Dad

So here we are nearly done with the month of May.  Which at my house means two things are quickly coming up, first is my daughter’s Birthday and hot on its heels will be Father’s day.  While my daughter is blessedly easy to shop for, just get it in pink and she will love it – more so if it also has sparkles.

The harder shopping feet in our house is what the kids are going to get their dad and step-dad.  Both are not into the typical gifts so often advertised on sale this time of year.  No ties or bbq aprons will be purchased around here.  When you are shopping for a “gamer guy” it is best to find an appropriately geekish gift that they will actually like.  So I would highly suggest Think Geek, if you have been to their site you know what I mean.  If you haven’t been then you should go check it out.  I know that I am ordering my husband’s present from them.  I would tell you what it is but I don’t want it getting back to him.

If you are a gamer girl looking to make a geek gift for the dad in your life, then I recommend the Star Wars Craft Book. If I could knit I would say make my son the R2-D2 knit cap. Speaking of Star Wars, I was happy to get to watch most of the opening ceremonies for the redone Star Tours at Walt Disney World. I am sad to see a ride that I have always enjoyed change, but I understand that change is a part of life and so will manage. Though with our next vacation to Disney World coming up end of next year, I am excited to see the new version of Star Tours. It has been converted to 3D, of course, and now features a variety of different Star Tours to go on, which will give the ride some exciting variety. Can’t wait to report on what I think of it.
