September is almost here, and that means it’s time to go shopping for back-to-school items. Of course, not everyone has kids to initiate into our geeky fold. To be honest, we’d buy a lot of the coolest things as collectibles for ourselves. And then maybe pass them on to our kids. Maybe. 

Whether you’ve got witches and warlocks in training or you’re simply a kid at heart, SYFY WIRE has put together a special Back to School Gift Guide that goes over the best gear that caught our collective eye. So don’t act so shocked that the first item on the list is a toy. Or, more precisely, the LEGO Harry Potter: Hogwarts Great Hall. Putting this beauty together solo or with your loved ones can help take your mind off anything school-related.

Now, for something more practical, Sprayground has you covered with some outstanding backpacks. The one that really stands out is the Bartman backpack, which includes fold-out cape attachments. It makes us want to do the Bartman all over again! The Sonic the Hedgehog and Voltron: Legendary Defender backpacks are also very enticing.

Some of these items are almost too awesome to use for their intended purpose. ThinkGeek’s My Neighbor Totoro and Super NES lunch bags fall into that category. We’d have an easier time using ThinkGeek’s lineup of notebooks and smaller collectibles. For the Deadpool fans among you, we’re also looking at a terrific Deadpool and unicorn backpack, as well as the Deadpool-themed headphones. 

There’s more where that came from, just watch the entire video! And if you're looking for geeky back-to-school clothing, we've got you covered there too!
