There are so many items available at Nerd Base, so we thought we’d you get started around by putting together this gift guide. Christmas presents will be sorted in no time. We’ve picked out some of our favourite toys, games and collectables for everyone in your family.

For the Star Wars fan

For those of you who’ve visited Nerd Base in the past, you’ve probably noticed that we have lots and lots of Star Wars merchandise, old and new, available to buy in store. Now, many of those items are available online too. Depending on your budget, here are a few of our top Star Wars picks.

Star Wars Stocking Filler

Funko Mystery Mini Star Wars Rise of Skywalker Ep 9, £5.99. Available here. This cheap and cheerful stocking filler is a surprise figure that’s bound to please any Star Wars lover.

Star Wars Board Game

Here’s a more retro-styled Star Wars gift for fans of the older movies that comes with a figure AND a board game. Plus, it’s currently on sale down from £24.99 to £21.99. Available here.

Star Wars Action Figure

This stunning 6 inch action figure is part of The Black Series collection. Available for £19.99 here.

For the Frozen fan

Frozen 2 has just hit the cinema, so we expect kids (and big kids) across the country to have lots of Frozen merchandise on their Christmas wish lists. We have plenty available, including:

Frozen Stocking Filler

Just like our Star Wars stocking filler, these Funko mystery mini Frozen 2 figures are bound to go down a treat. £5.99 available here.

Frozen Pop! Vinyl

If you’re looking for a slightly bigger Frozen Pop! we’ve got several available, including this Elsa for £9.99 here.

For the Potterhead

We all know a Harry Potter fan, don’t we? Thanks to the new Fantastic Beasts movies there’s even more Wizarding World merchandise than ever.

Ginny Weasley on Broom Funko Pop! Vinyl, £9.99 here.

We particularly like this Pop! Vinyl of Ginny Weasly in her Quidditch uniform, complete with a plastic stand that makes it look as though she’s flying in mid-air.

Harry Potter Top Trumps Collectors Tins, £9.99 here.

Another great gift for Potterheads that’ll keep you entertained on Christmas day is a Harry Potter Top Trumps Collectors Tin. Choose your Hogwarts house to get two packs of Harry Potter Top Trumps in a neat suitcase-style tin.

For the Marvel fan

Avengers Endgame was the movie of the year, making Marvel more popular than ever. Any Marvel fan will love these gifts.

Marvel Legends Series: Captain America, £19.99 here.

Part of the Build A Figure Marvel Legends Series, this Captain America stands 6 inches tall and comes complete with his famous shield. What’s even cooler is that if you collect all of the figures in this series you’ll be able to build a whole new figure: Thanos.

Funko Pop! Vinyl Marvel Girl, £9.99 here.

You can’t go wrong with this Marvel Girl Pop! Vinyl figure as part of the Mavel 80th Anniversary collection.

For the Tabletop Games lover

We have a big selection of board and card games available online and in store, including these firm favourites.

Keyforge Age of Ascension 2 Player Starter Set, £23.99 here.

Get started with this fun and challenging card game in which every deck is unique.

Star Wars Destiny Boba Fett Starter Deck, £11.99 here.

Alternatively, Star Wars fans that enjoy playing games might like this card starter deck for Star Wars Destiny. Build a team of heroes (or villains) and take on another player in this strategic card and dice game.

Stranger Things Monopoly: Collector’s Edition, £41.99 here.

This fun twist on the classic game of Monopoly introduces glow-in-the-dark elements and a four-sided dice that lets you travel via tunnel shortcuts. It’s a really nicely made Collector’s Edition that’ll make a great gift.
