The Nerdy Dad
Let’s be honest, nerdy dads are know-it-alls! Chances are they’ve seen it all, they’ve read it all, they know it all, and most likely they want to go to Mars now. These dads can spark whole conversations with just one bizarre history fact which is why our list provides great gifts for history buffs. They probably love STEM almost as much as they love you! This season, let’s geek him out with Mango’s space gifts for dads and nerdy dad gifts. Want to make sure he names his child something cooler than X Æ A-12? Get him The Origin of Names, Vol. II & II. Want to inspire your dad to pursue aerospace? Check out Not Necessarily Rocket Science. If they love Star Wars, get him Why We Love Star Wars, one of the best Star Wars gifts for dads.
Gifts for Dads Who Know Everything
If he’s a dad that likes to ask “how?” (Story Behind) or “why?”(The Origin of Names, Vol. I & Vol. II), spark his insightful passion with Answers to Questions. Give him a wide variety of weird facts to jump-start any conversation (The Flip Side of History), and throw in the famous words of one of his favorite historical figures from Any Last Words?. If these gifts for history buffs don’t satisfy his love for the past, take him on a trip to Saudi Arabia (Behind the Kingdom’s Veil) or cruise the seven seas(Why We Love Pirates).
Gifts for Dads Who Want to Go to Space
Gift your geeky uncle with an exclusive space expedition to the moon (For All Humankind), where the technology is enough proof that Neil Armstrong wasn’t faking it (Future Rising). Another great space gift would be Not Necessarily Rocket Science which talks about documented space achievements or Future of Science is Female which would teach him about all of the remarkable women that are shaping the future of STEM .
Gifts for Dads Who Have Seen Every Movie
As a nerdy dad gift, build a time machine together to visit the past (Back From the Future), or skip to the future (Films from the Future). As a unique space gift for dad, show him what makes his favorite space movie a cultural classic (Why We Love Star Wars). If he’s a black and white mystery film lover, make sure his magnifying glass is handy for sleuthing (Sherlock Holmes Stories,The Return of Sherlock Holmes.) Does your dad have a passion for women’s history in film? Get him Backwards & In Heels and The Female Gaze, which are both great gifts for history buffs.
Gifts for Dads Who Have Read Every Book
If his book collection leaves you searching for something he hasn’t read, finding the perfect gift for your dad may seem impossible. Exchange grandpa’s newspaper with historical stories (Black Man on the Titanic, Monster) and larger than life mythologies (Greek Mythology ). Inspire him with the bravery of a survivor story (Across the Deep) or shock him with the tragedy of World War II romance (The Deep Enders). Though he may read and know everything, challenge his wits as a wine connoisseur (Booklovers’ Guide to Wine).
