We all have a geek side. The only question is how much of it is in us? Well, let’s put this to the test and see how many of us can resist these awesome ordinary items that were just given a geeky twist.
While we tried looking for an actual Captain Planet indoor air purifier and an Avengers quantum-suit-inspired PPE to keep us safe from COVID-19, we didn’t find any, so we’ll stick to the regular editions for now.
20 Everyday Items with a Geeky Flair
1. Doctor Who Kitchen Towels
For fans of the time-traveling doctor, you may not get to weave through time and space but you can get these kitchen towels to showcase your love for all things Doctor Who.
2. Dragonball Z Manual Stick Knob
For the anime lover, nothing beats having a seven-star Dragonball as your stick shift’s knob. If you don’t know how to drive a manual, this is a great reason to learn now.
3. Game Boy iPhone Case
Tired of playing the usual games on your iPhone? With this retro case, you can flip to the backside of your iPhone and play 36 old school Game Boy classics that come built-in with it.

7. Star Wars Salt & Pepper Shakers
Finally, a product we can all agree upon. I have always seen R2-D2 as some sort of giant salt shaker. Bringing along his droid bud, R2-Q5 completes the combo.
8. Legend of Zelda Leather Notebook
Folks who grew up in the ‘80s will definitely love this one-of-a-kind leather notebook inspired by the famous video game series. You can use it to write down your plans on rescuing the princess or just simply take down notes at work or in class.
9. Pokemon Bulbasaur Mini Planter
Those who love plants and succulents are in for a real treat. This mini Pokemon ceramic planter is small enough to look nice displayed on any shelf or console and has a hole underneath for water drainage. Well, gotta plant ‘em all!
10. Guardians of the Galaxy Groot Planters
So if Pokemon isn’t your thing, then perhaps one of these cute and adorable Baby Groot planters will do. Put plants in it to make Baby Groot grow, kind of. Even if you don’t put plants in him, he still makes for an awesome display piece.
11. Harry Potter Bookmark Set
Harry Potter fans have just been given a brand new dimension to take their reading to a whole new level with these Horcrux bookmarks. We know that hard-core fans can finish a book in one sitting but for us mere mortals, these can help us keep track of where we stopped.
12. R2-D2 Measuring Cup Set
Another must-have for any hardcore Star Wars fan. This R2-D2 measuring cup set can be broken down into separate pieces that function as measuring cups and spoons. Even if you don’t spend time in the kitchen, this piece would still make for a great snack buddy.
13. NES Cube Speaker
For the retro gamer, this piece brings back a lot of great memories of playing NES back in the day. Perhaps its best feature is its directional-pad-styled control buttons. One look at it and gamers will swoon over this beauty.
14. Chemist’s Spice Rack
This chemist’s spice rack set best represents what cooking is really all about. Cooking is a form of science with all the measurements and technicalities. This definitely adds a whole new dimension to cooking.
15. Bubblewrap Calendar
Everybody loves getting packages in the mail, not just the geeks who but toys, collectibles, books, and other merchandise online. One of the best things about receiving packages is the bubble wrap. We all love it. So what do you say to 365 days worth of popping bubbles for the coming year? It’ll take every ounce of self-control to not go through the whole year on January 1st.
These items aren’t just great for personal use but also make for ideal gifts for geeks of all ages, too.
