Whether it's my Batman ring, Millennium Falcon bottle opener, sonic screwdriver remote control (from the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors), Cylon toaster, or Spider-Man Christmas decorations, my nerdiness flows through me like the Force, and touches everything in my life. Not long ago, it was more difficult to visibly display fandom through high quality replicas, lifestyle items and fashionable wear.

But these are the days when we can let our geek flag fly high. As such, we dedicate this gift guide to living it up and incorporating fan love throughout our life. Whether it's a sword to hang on the wall (and take to battle) or coasters perfect for your living room or TARDIS, these are suggestions to giving your giftee a way to express themselves at home, in the office or out-and-about in the galaxy.

There are still more guides coming, including grown-up goodies in our Dirty Nerd suggestions. And after checking out the Live It Up Gift Guide, don’t miss these other 2014 Gift Guide collections:
