These 48 Gender Neutral Gifts for Adults are Perfect for Everyone

Written by

Preparing for Christmas can be a big deal, especially when it comes to gift-giving. Thankfully, if you have someone that's a little bit geeky or nerdy, it usually makes them easier to shop for. (We'd also argue that it's more fun too!) If the recipient loves superheroes, there are plenty of superhero gifts to order online, and this is similar for pretty much every other major fandom. Many of these items also make great gender neutral gifts as well. We'll also throw in some other fun gift-giving ideas for people that are into other things, from sports to books, board games and more! You won't be stumped on what to give even your most difficult-to-shop-for relative or friend after browsing over this gender neutral gift guide at!


Cool Gifts for Christmas

"Cool" varies a lot depending on who you talk to, but we like to define cool gifts as items that would make any geek or nerd shriek with joy upon opening said gift. (Shrieks of joy are a thing, and they're just as wonderful as squees or tears of joy.) There are a smattering of cool present ideas here, from action figures and figurines to messenger bags, board games, hardcover art books, home décor, and even a Harry Potter village collector item. Feel free to take these cool gift ideas and run with them—if your giftee likes to get cozy blankets but they're not keen on Batman, there are still other geeky throw blankets to choose from! The same goes for all of the other cool gift ideas on this list from art books to replicas and board games.

Perhaps you have that one person on your Christmas shopping list who doesn't want anything unless they can use it multiple times in a year.

Items like bedding, bookends, candles, coffee mugs, umbrellas, messenger bags, travel pillows and even ugly sweaters! Yes, there are some unisex ugly Christmas sweaters and some of them are fun enough that you can wear them all winter long. The best part about all of these unisex Christmas gift ideas is that they cover a wide variety of fandoms, so it's going to be hard not to find something your special someone will love.
