Gift Guide for Geek Chic

Whether it’s you, your friend, your partner, your parents or your kids, gifts for this person are all things niche! That is great because we know that local shops are such specialists in what they do. If they don’t have exactly what you are looking for, they invariably know someone who can help in your quest for that rare find. Of course there are all kinds of niches out there from comics to games, from synths to vinyl records, from retro consoles to VR, from collectables to toys.

To help you on your quest have a browse in the following shops who are happy to post things out to you if they have the items you need, or if you ask nicely! Remember if you don’t see the product, you can ask a question on and the business will get back to you and let you know. Better still give them a call.
