The holidays are fast upon us — and nerds have needs. Nerdvana has a few ideas to aid in your selfless quest!

Bigfoot garden yeti — If you’ve seen the new Rise of the Guardians animated film (and if you haven’t, you should), then you know what an important part that the Yeti play in Santa’s workshop. Well, now you can have your very own Sasquatch for your workshop, garden, office or desktop. This detailed statue is very cool and comes in medium, large and life-sized – for when you need a furry friend that knows what it’s like to not be believed in.

Space Boy Robots — Local Artist Jordan Thomas creates the perfect one-of-a-kind gifts for any robot aficionado. His robots are all hand-crafted out of wood and other found items and they are crazy-cool with steampunk and pop culture themed designs. Each robot comes with its own secret compartment where you can hide to the keys to your life-sized robot. Jordan’s work can currently be found at Made Art Boutique and Practical Art in Phoenix – or you can contact Mr. Thomas via his website to contract a custom creation.

The gift that geeks on giving — Phoenix Comicon passes are just $40 through Dec. 31. The guest announcements have just begun (see them here) and there’s already something for everyone.

There are many more gift ideas lurking in the Nerdvana archives. Explore them now!
