Best Housewarming Gifts For Geeks
by Peter Harback ■ Updated: October 1, 2019
Did you know that the Origins of the Housewarming party came literally from the act of warming a new house?
In medieval times, before we were all blessed by central heating, each guest would bring firewood and build fires in ALL the available fireplaces in the home, also offering the firewood as a gift. Sometimes there would be a fireplace in every room.
I’m glad we’ve moved past offering firewood as a gift.
Even if you have no clue who what it means to be “Bigger on the Inside” or where the phrase “You Shall Not Pass” comes from we’ve made it easy for you with these cool ideas for the nerdy geeks in your life.
Here’s some of our most popular housewarming gifts for geeks:
1. Doctor Who Tardis Door Mat
If they’re into Doctor Who then they’ll love this Doctor Who Tardis Door Mat, it features the iconic catchphrase "It's bigger on the inside"
