Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fun and inspired Christmas trees based on video games, science fiction and other pop culture memes. So I figured that this holiday season, I’d put together a compilation of some of my favorites of all time.
This Cookie Monster tree surprisingly has no cookies hanging from its branches – probably because he ate them all. Decorate this tree with cookies all you want, but they will disappear as soon as you put them on.
Wait. This is what trees do after Christmas? They fly away? I’d better anchor my tree down so I can enjoy it for a few more weeks. You better nail yours down too, because if Otto Dieffenbach’s tree can fly like this, they might all take off.
LEGO is a magnificent invention, and one of the coolest toys in the world. The little brick can deliver the most pain known to man when you step on one, and be used to build just about anything in any size you can imagine.
It’s never too early for Christmas? Right? Okay, maybe it is, but we are talking Mario here. Etsy seller LighterCases is branching out from their namesake lighter cases apparently and offering a neat set of Super Mario Christmas ornaments.
This Dalek Christmas tree is ready to deck the halls and exterminate the Doctor this holiday season. The only gift this tree wants below its limbs is the Doctor’s body. Well, that and death, death, death to everyone.
Did your Christmas tree take off like a rocket? No, I didn’t think so. If it did, you would have a hole in your roof and a large cleanup bill. Anyway, I’m sure that your tree was lovely, but here’s the thing.
Check out this sparkly Death Star tree topper. It makes for a very merry and geeky Christmas – unless, of course, you happen to live on Alderaan. This DIY Death Star puts the ultimate power in the universe at the top of your tree.
Whoever made that awesome Portal Christmas tree should get these officially licensed Companion Cube string lights. Hopefully they won’t short and burn your house down. Because I’m sure they remember what you did.
The 10′ cord comes with 10 Companion Cube lights.
Celebrate the holidays this year with extermination! With this Dalek Christmas tree, forget putting gifts under the tree or hanging pretty ornaments. The only gift you will be wishing for is for the good Doctor to come and save you.
There’s no more iconic symbol of geekdom than Doctor Who’s TARDIS. You could pretty much make anything into a TARDIS, and it’ll not only be cool, but everyone will know exactly what you’re into. So the next time you throw an outdoor party – or just want to decorate your house – pick up a set of these TARDIS string lights, and proudly fly your geek flag.
It’s getting to be the time of year when people start putting up festive decorations. Apparently, it’s also the season for pranking.
ThinkGeek never lets us down in the way of oddball gadgets. Just in time for the holidays is their new TannenBomb Prank Holiday Ornament.
There’s just something about most holiday decorations that screams fire hazard, but this one really takes that idea and runs with it. This Christmas tree, by deviantARTist Maire, is done up almost completely in papercraft. The few lone traditional ornaments look awfully forlorn (and seriously outnumbered).
