Our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide!


Allow Us To Explain

Allow Us To Explain

Look, you already know what your loved one likes. You’ve already gotten her the special edition DVD with that great bonus commentary, the hardcover trade collection with the ribbon bookmark and extra material in the back, or the Collectors Edition with the soundtrack album and gold Wiimote. What you haven’t gotten is anything they didn’t ask for, that item that’ll really put an excited smile on their face.

We’re going to show you where to find really unique items for nerdy girls that will make people go “Where did you FIND that?” Because all of us nerdy girls know how exciting it is to find licensed t-shirts that fit, or jewelry from our favorite franchises, or otherwise girl oriented but geeky merchandise.

And not having to seek them out yourself? Well, sometimes that’s the ultimate (material) gift.

    Etzy is ubberly fantastic. And if friends and family don’t mind you being straightforward, putting together an Amazon wish list is VERY helpful for the Geek at Heart. Because nothing says “Oh, you really shouldn’t have” like getting Marvel comics if you’re DC, a Hufflepuff banner when you’re a Slytherin, or steampunk gear when you want Hobbit stuff. Let them see the specifics so you’ll get exactly what you want like I did for my birthday (a “Hetalia” notebook, 50 rainbow gel pens, Doctor Who novels, and chocolate ^^)

    Added WAY too many of those welovefine.com shirts to my wishlist. 90s storm costume? Yes please! (Not as cool as the one my mom made me in the 5th grade, but will actually fit me currently.)

    Actually the International Star Registry is really a waste of money. No one except the International Star Registry will have record of ‘your’ star. They’re pretty much just selling a piece of paper for over 50 bucks. 

    How about a membership to a local science museum? That would be a better gift.

    A warning about Threadless: the material they use in their T-shirts is ridiculously thin and flimsy.  Their designs can be inspired, but the lack of quality in the actual product capsizes the whole thing.

    I have tons of Threadless tees, they aren’t all made of the same material but I am happy with their quality.

    My husband lost his mind this year with gift giving. Normally he’s a Grinch during Christmas, but this year his heart expanded two sizes too big and he’s all “in the spirit of Christmas”. I gave him a short list of what I wanted (I’m sensible about gift giving and don’t expect or hint or get angry when people don’t get me things I didn’t ask for). I think he bought all or most of what I asked for, plus a ton of other things. I have no idea what the “other things” are… but he’s been gloating about it, and feeling immensely pleased with himself, so I suspect what ever he got *is awesome*. ;)

    If the fabric used varies from design to design, then it would help if Threadless specified of what each shirt was made in their listings.  As it stands, you’re playing roulette, as what apparently is the lower end of their fabric quality spectrum _is_ quite bad.
