SUPERHERO SHOPPING: Geeky Gifts From Getting Personal

Every Father's Day I dread what presents I am going to wake up to, but this year I was pleasantly surprised with my gifts from a company that I was unfamiliar with ... GETTING PERSONAL.

If you’re looking to buy gifts for a friend, family member or loved one who loves comic book superheroes, then GETTING PERSONAL is a great alternative to make sure that the gifts are perfect and personalized, whoever it’s for. I have zoomed around the site and here are a few things that caught my eye. It's never too early to shop for Christmas, Hannukah or birthdays ... in fact, it's never too early to shop.

For a kid (and by kid I mean me), why not try the Superhero Bathroom Commando – a suspended frame that fits over any standard-sized bath. From it hang super-villains whom you can shoot with the water pistol. Flip the villain completely around and “pow” or “zap” is revealed.

For anyone who fantasizes about creating their own superhero comic book, why not indulge their fantasy by giving them a personalized superhero notebook. They come in A5 and A4 sizes.

If your superhero is a little grumpy in the morning, then serving them their coffee in a personalized superhero mug may be the answer. My son knows me so well.

If your superhero goes out to work all day, or like me, just enjoys a few beers, then the Personalized Pint Glass is probably the perfect way for him to unwind afterwards. Embossed with the words ‘I am a Superhero’, the glass can be personalized with the recipient’s name and a four-line message. If you’re feeling doubly generous, then why not add a handy silver bottle opener to your order? That way he can hide his superpowers and not risk breaking the bottle.

If you fancy really spoiling the superhero in your life, the Personalized Superhero Wooden Sign is a truly special gift. Painted on reclaimed wood, it has a vintage, retro comic-book feel that is stylish and chic. For the superhero who doesn't care about a secret identity.

So go on – spoil the superhero or if it's not too politically incorrrect, the superheroine in your life.
