10 Perfect Holiday Gifts for Your Geeky Loved One
With the holidays fast approaching, what should you get for that Whedonite/Whovian/Trekkie in your life? Here are ten wonderful holiday gifts that would make any geek happy (as long as you get the fandom right):
Independents Flag - Firefly
Want to show the world that you're a renegade Independent who stands against the tyrannical Alliance? Hanging this in your bedroom definitely makes a statement. You could also go all-out and buy this Browncoat replica.
Weeping Angel Christmas Topper - Doctor Who
Just don't blink.
Electronic Tribble - Star Trek
Possibly the most adorable thing to come out of the Star Trek universe, the Tribbles are basically just big balls of fur, and the electronic version features "sound and touch-activated vibration" as well as "'agitated' & 'coo' sound effects." Mildly disturbing, but cute!
Just Look at the Flowers Bracelet - The Walking Dead
It looks so sweet and pretty, until you remember the Walking Dead episode that inspired it.
There's also this Official Walking Dead Survival Kit, but it's expensive enough that you either need to be a really hardcore fan or actually believe that the zombie apocalypse will happen.
Because nothing's better than Battlestar Galactica, except for a mash-up of Battlestar and The Office.
Sorry for killing everyone you love.
This effectively creepy propaganda poster may not be full of holiday cheer, but it's morbidly amusing, and it cuts straight to the heart of the often dark YA trilogy.
But I mean...
For Next Year
I am so sad that this isn't coming out until March, because it really is the perfect holiday gift, especially for kids. I know that my family's toy Santa who sings "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" while awkwardly shaking its hips is my favorite Christmas artifact, and this is the geeky, adorable version of that. But, next year it is!
