Erin’s The Geekiary Holiday Gift Guide 2017
We all have that one person in our lives that seems to have everything and is impossible to find a gift for. Fear not! We are reprising our Holiday Gift Guide for the geeky fan in your life. These gift ideas are sure to please your family and friends (and probably you), and make great gifts for whatever holiday you are celebrating–and throughout the year!
Our friends Mulder and Scully are coming back to TV next month, so get in the mood or introduce the next generation to The X-Files with the first item in our Holiday Gift Guide: this adorable kids book! As usual, Mulder and Scully investigate strange sounds during a camping trip in the backyard. This book is sure to delight fans of all ages.
The X-Files: Earth Children Are Weird is available on Amazon, courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox.
For someone who is a little older and prefers items to be looked at only, check out the cool Game of Thrones paper art from HBO and Lovepop.
Yes, that is really Daenerys on Drogon’s back, but there are a total of five scenes in the collection, including the Night King with Viserion, Euron’s ship, the Iron Throne, and the Weirwood. Drogon and Daenerys, The Night King, Euron’s Ship, Iron Throne, and Weirwood are available at Lovepop.com and at Lovepop retailers near you.
As we get older, it is sometimes hard to express our geeky side in a professional manner, but SanSanAtelier has you covered. We previously introduced you to this artist for Fan Artist Friday, but we knew they belonged in our Holiday Gift Guide as well. What better gift for that executive Harry Potter fan in your life than a Deathly Hallows tie clip? It is perfect for work.
OK, we all LOVE Stranger Things, so why not treat a lucky lady in your life to this amazing demogorgon dress from More Me Know? Yes, it looks like flowers, but really it is a relic from the Upside Down.
Skater dresses are super flattering for all body types, and our very own Tara Lynne is a tried and true fan of More Me Know. They have lots of dresses, totes, pins, and other accessories from all sorts of fandoms.
Obviously it would not be the holiday season without some candles, so give your favorite geeky coworker something from Bubble & Geek?
Not only does the shop have more conventional candle scents, but the fandom-specific candles are particularly noteworthy, include the leather and musky “If Daryl Dies We Riot” or the strawberry and mimosa notes of “Treat Yo’ Self”. Whichever one you choose will be sure to delight.
For those of you who know me or listen to our monthly webcast FEELINGS…with The Geekiary, you know that reading is not my strong suit. I do, however, love bookish items, particularly when they are in the form of accessories. Luckily, NovelCreations has us covered, natch, by converting hard covers into purses.
The shop has book covers from all different genres and are available in various sizes. These are perfect to add just that little personal touch to your outfit.
One of my favorite shops to go crazy with nerdy shopping is definitely Think Geek. For some last minute items or some gifts that you don’t want to spend a ton of money on, they have an entire easy-to-use Stocking Stuffer category. Just look at this adorable Star Wars R2-D2 billfold that I found:
You can find so many items at Think Geek including apparel, gadgets, accessories, and home goods. It is really a great one-stop source for everyone on your Christmas list.
Hopefully our Holiday Gift Guide has gotten you in the mood to go search for great gifts for all of your nerdiest friends. Where will you be shopping this holiday season, and what was your favorite find? Let us know in the comments!
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. Neither The Geekiary nor myself were given ANY compensation for the recommendations in this Holiday Gift Guide.
