Do you have those one or two people who are a pain to shop for because they have everything? Well look no further than our Nerd Stuff. It’s an assortment of some of raddest merch we’ve seen this year and there’s a good bet that the person you’re buying for hasn’t seen some of this stuff yet or if they have, they really want it.
Art of Jed Henry
For the gamer in your life that enjoys the sensationally rad, comes the art of Jed Henry. Jed’s popular Ukiyo-E Heroes series takes classic gaming characters and gives them an 18th and 19th century Japanese design. His pieces are available as giclée prints or handmade prints made from woodblocks using an ancient Japanese printmaking method. And if you want the gift that keeps giving all year long, his Chibi Heroes line of prints deliver two prints to your doorstep every month. Purchase them here.
