This week’s Geek Gifts is supersized! Find out what to get for the fantasy geeks in your life this holiday season.
For the next three weeks, we’re doing Geek Gifts a little differently. Instead of picking just one geeky item each, we’ve pooled Hypable’s collective powers and come up with a list of gifts you can get the fantasy geek in your life.
Geek Gifts is a weekly feature article written by Donya Abramo and Karen Rought. With every installment, the duo picks out a fandom-related item they’ve recently come across and describes it in loving detail. There are no product placements here. We only talk about items we’re excited to share with the rest of the world.
Your Geek Gifts come in a variety of ways, be it jewelry, clothing, games, or something else entirely. We strive to remain unbiased, and we plan on constantly expanding our own horizons as we search for new and interesting pieces. The only requirement is that it must give us the burning need to open our wallets and throw money at its creator.
The holidays is a time for family, and for some people, that’s a good thing. If you need to take the edge off of those family squabbles, consider this Game of Thrones beer set. It features Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout, along with a Game of Thrones glass. Even if family isn’t an issue, it’s sure to help you through season 6 of the show.
If only this planner could actually tell us the future. We’d probably still procrastinate. Still, the Harry Potter-themed scheduler has a higher chance than most to motivate you to get all your tasks done. The bottom of each page has a different spell, and there are differently colored themes based on the Hogwarts houses. These come in a variety of sizes and styles, and each one is hand bound, so the quality is high.
The Mortal Instruments/Shadowhunters fandom is about to get a major boost thanks to ABC adapting Cassie Clare’s story into a series due out in 2016. Whether your loved one has been a long-time fan or is just super excited for the show, this classic looking necklace is a perfect way to represent their love.
Everyone loves a good set of word magnets for writing out silly stories on the refrigerator. Even better? Avatar: The Last Airbender word magnets! Now you can relive your favorite episodes, write new ones, or just come up with a crazy catchphrase you can imagine Sokka saying. These are best paired with our ReWatchable Avatar: The Last Airbender podcast.
Beans, beans, the magical fruit, the more you eat, the more you travel to distant lands and battle ogres and stuff. These Once Upon a Time beans actually glow. It may be due to science and not magic, but you don’t have to tell your friends that. They’re hand crafted and made of glass, so whether the OUAT fan in your life is a detail-oriented cosplayer or just likes to stare at pretty things on their shelves, these would make an excellent gift.
Every Lord of the Rings fan needs a map of the realm, and this one in particular is made of wood! It gives you that sense of Elvish refinery…if Elves had lasers. Regardless, the map provides perfect details — nothing but the best for your loved one’s wall.
This time of year is perfect for Buffy the Vampire Slayer because every time of year is perfect for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This pillow is both cute and hilarious, and a great accent to just about any room. If you’re joining us while we rewatch the series, you can hug this close and let it absorb your feelings.
No one knows the love and devotion family can inspire in you like Supernatural. It doesn’t mean being a Winchester is easy, but it sure as hell isn’t boring. The number of times those boys have met their maker and lived to tell the tale is, at this point, incalculable. At least you got this t-shirt.
We can pretty much guarantee your dad never got a tie like this one. He can show of his Magnus Chase pride by wearing his very own chain mail tie. Sure, Blitz might not have made it himself, but it’s nice to know his hard work is paying off and mortals are embracing his designs with open arms.
You can never have too many glow in the dark items in your life. The best part about this Frozen necklace is that it recharges with the sunlight! During the day it looks like an ordinary necklace with an intricate design. Once the dark descends, however, it glows blue and looks like Anna as she begins to freeze. Don’t worry, true love will save her!
Will you be putting any of these fantasy geek gifts on your own wish list?
