Father's Day is fast approaching and I have rounded up some handpicked gifts I think that Geeky Dads of all stripes would appreciate!
picture frame from Gibberish uses the Periodic Table of Elements to spell out a name. Spelling out your family name would make an awesome picture frame for Dad's desk.They also make awesome greeting cards, lab coat tags, and cuff links.
Autobot Family Decals are a geeky alternative to the ubiquitous family stick figure decals and would look way cooler on Dad's car.
Weelittlestiches. They say that they are suitable for beginners and the PDF pattern files even include tips. The one pictured has all of the Doctors from Doctor Who, but you can also find Ghostbusters, Firefly, Justic League, Star Wars and other geeky patterns.

A magazine subscription (SciAm, Make, Cook's Illustrated,Wired, etc.) is the perfect gift if you've totally waited until the last minute. You can go into your local book shop, megamart, or drugstore and pick up a copy of a magazine that dad would appreciate. Present the current issue to him with a note explaining that you have arraigned a subscription for him. Then go online and buy him a subscription. Don't forget to do that last part, it's important.
What did you get the Geeky Dad in your life?
