Tara Lynne’s Geekiary Gift Guide
Let’s be honest – a lot of websites do gift guides. But I’m going to go ahead and claim that this one is the best because I’m creating it. And because the vast majority of the items on this list are actually, um, affordable…and not necessarily something you would just stumble upon on ThinkGeek or the HBO Store website. Not that I have anything against either of them – trust me, they’ve received more of my money than should be possible – but because I am a big proponent of supporting the “little guy” (quotes because none of the artists featured in this guide should be considered little; they’re all amazing). Yes, a lot of my suggestions here are guided by personal preference…but hey, I had fun putting this list together, and I completely support every artist/website/shop/experience I’m listing 🙂 So without further ado…
A perfect print for any Jurassic Park fan.
A keychain that serves as a great reminder…and is also cute…
Knit scarves for several Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones houses – but most importantly, House Martell.
The sweetest Wicked friendship necklaces.
Speaking of friendship jewelry…how about a reminder that your BFF is also your zombie apocalypse buddy?
Gorgeous Star Wars serving platters – especially the Millennium Falcon.
Superb Deathly Hallows earrings for all those Harry Potter fans.
The coolest Zelda clock on the market.
Eye shadows for every Mad Max: Fury Road lover.
For the notebook lover in your life…who also appreciates Battlestar Galactica, of course…
Real or not real? Sometimes we all need to be reminded.
Pleasant roll-on perfume for anyone who wants to smell like a rich Englishman.
HAIL HYDRYA!…in Game of Thrones style? Who could say no to this?
Sorry not sorry but Toothless/Stitch is an amazing Fandom Mashup.
And what about a Castiel-themed candle?
It’s almost winter – the Hunger Games fan in your life needs this amazingly comfortable cowl!
Everyone needs a flask…why not one designed for luck?
Classy Star Wars attire – shirts and socks galore!
A sweet pink whale for all those Steven Universe fans who need a pick-me-up…
And last but not least…the ULTIMATE Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones Getaway…

Please note that either myself or other Geekiary staff members have purchased from several of these shops and can vouch for their product quality and service. The ones we have not purchased from were *mostly* sourced from The Geekiary’s “Stuff We Want” Pinterest board. The only thing listed here that I am directly involved with is Ice & Fire Con, and you can read my convention reports from 2014 and 2015 on this website. Neither The Geekiary nor myself were given ANY compensation for the recommendations in this gift guide.
