1. Heidi M., marketing manager at Powell’s Books, knows what you should give fans of Dr. Who and Battlestar Galactica (and your cousin who’s really into cosplay) this year: Geek Battle.

    “Within each Geek Battle box exists a magical place where geeks and their loved ones can meet, interact, learn some stuff, and be impressed with each other. (Note: Actual geekiness is not required for gameplay. If you can reference a ‘plus 4 to your Mystical Helmet of Knowledge,’ though, all the better.)”
