Manly Souvenir Suggestions for a Disney-Disliker

Looking for souvenir suggestions!

My DD7 wants to take DH back a special souvenir (he's not going with us). In the past, we've taken him a DIY Droid from Tattoine Traders.

The only problem is the fact that he doesn't really like classic "disney" stuff (which is why he's not going with us).

I'm thinking DHS may be our best bet...with the Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar merchandise. Any suggestions for neat souvenirs to take a nerdy, computer-loving, iPhone toting, role-playing, intellectual? I'm trying to avoid the cliche coffee cup...


Thanks!

I bought my stepdad a beer stein from the shop in Germany at World Showcase in Epcot. He loved it!

Last year I got my DH one of those hats with the spanish monorail dialogue on it. He wears basecaps a lot and he liked that it was light weight for the summertime.

In DHS they had a lot of different hats-some without any disney 'characters' at all.

Or...food...can't go wrong with chocolates!

I have an Indiana Jones leather hat that I actually wear, a beer mug and shot glass with the Welsh Griffin on both, guess where my folks came from? Also, we have a growing shotglass collection. The first two items arre available in WS, the hat at that Outpost thing, the mug and glass in/around Great Britian and the other shotglass in the various countries and all the other parks.

DH bight a really nice shirt in the men's store at the GF. Otherwise I agree with the shot glasses there are loads both Disney and non Disney ones available.

If he likes sports there are loads if good things at team mickey in DTD such as engraved baseball bats

WDW doesn't sell shot glasses. They're called toothpick holders or small glasses.

IIRC the shops in the UK pavilion at Epcot had men's toiletries like Caswell Massey and some other brands. Italy had beautiful wallets. France had nice colognes. Canada has ice wine, don't they? My guys like trying different candies, too, especially when the ingredients are a guess (Germany and Japan had some fun ones).

The glass pavillion outside of Germany in Epcot has a very nice collection of Beer Steins/Glasses and you can get them engraved for something like $3.00 per word.

What a great idea. He's somewhat of a hot sauce snob....this could be perfect! Last time, we took him some candy from the Japan pavilion that was shaped like sushi. Hot sauce would be great!
Thanks!
