It’s that time of year again. The time of year where I scour the Internet for gifts, find cute stuff I want for myself, and lament my lack of limitless funds and space. Should I stop eying the Star Wars merchandise? Logically yes, but…that Darth Vader tree topper calls to me. It’s a time of great internal struggle, but rather than buying everything, I bust out my M.S. Paint skills and share my finds with the world. You’re welcome!
Here are some geekish gift ideas inspired by my fellow contributors at Speculative Chic. A few of the items below were already shared in My Favorite Things, others are nods to certain TV shows, movies, books, games, and passions, discussed here over the past few months. Hope you enjoy.
