After providing a bunch of gateway gifts to get your receiver hooked on new genres, it is time to show off those creative gift-fu skills. It is certainly a swell time to be a fan, when nerd merch can be acquired not only in comic shops or bookstores, but at most big-box retailers and on every mainstream seller's site. Yet sometimes the overproliferation of the stuff we love can also detract from its unique personality. Luckily, there are a bunch of artistic and crafty creators out there who have an indie spirit as well as a geeky one. These are the folks to buy from for those on your list with distinct and discriminating tastes, but not for those lacking a sense of fun. From exceptional Star Wars art to a Predator helmet, click ahead, dear reader, to get creative with your gift-giving.
