I’ve seen my fair share of geeky Christmas ornaments in recent years, from Star Wars Boba Flakes to Mars Attacks! Christmas ornaments. It’s fun because you get to dress up your tree in ornaments that show off your true, geeky nature.
We’re almost at the final level of this year. I know you’re still resting from beating the Thanksgiving buffet and wounded from your encounter with the Black Friday hordes, but we must be steadfast! The last big holiday of the year is upon us.
Do you have empty spaces on your tree that aren’t filled with geeky ornaments? You could cut out your own paper snowflakes, or you could fill up those empty spaces with these laser-cut, acrylic Star Wars snowflake ornaments.
If you’ve got a gamer in the house, there’s no better place to hide their littlest Christmas presents than in this retro 8-bit Christmas stocking.
This stocking has an old-school controller on top (yes, we know the D-pad is on the wrong side) and a chunky pixelated pattern across the main sock area.
My favorite part of Tim Burton’s cult classic Mars Attacks! (besides every scene with Jack Nicholson in it) is the part where grandma’s Indian Love Call yodeling record is discovered to be the Achilles’ heel of the invaders, blowing their heads to smithereens.
I promise, this is the last gingerbread thing I talk about this holiday season, but c’mon this one is Serenity from Firefly, so I couldn’t ignore it. That is one good looking ship no matter what it’s made out of.
This shot of Luke and Leia decorating the Xmas tree does look quite funny, though the idea of a dead Vader head on as a tree-topper is a bit morbid. Either way, even with Darth Vader gone, the Skywalkers still have to celebrate Christmas, even if they are in a galaxy far, far away.
If you have kids and they’re anything like mine, they are apt to bust out singing and dancing at any given moment to some sort of soundtrack in their heads. One episode of Dancing with the Stars, my daughter danced with her cat and after a talk about how kitty’s legs don’t move like our arms, poor ol’ Cutie still fears music.
Would I spend hour upon hour to complete a 7-foot Dalek, that’s appropriately garbed for the holidays? Probably not, but that didn’t stop the Addis family from Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, UK, from going for it.
If you’re giving a Minecraft-related offering to a loved one this Christmas, you can add an extra special touch by combining 1 gift + 1 Minecraft Wrapping Paper. Of course you can use it to wrap any gift, but if your recipient isn’t familiar with the game they might think you hate them because of the drab and blocky print on the paper.
You’re probably sick of anything related to Angry Birds by now. I was never addicted to the game myself, but I’m still impressed by YouTuber kumbaric, who ported the wildly successful game on an unlikely platform: Christmas lights.
I have to make a confession. I bookmarked this image all the way back in January 2009, thinking to myself that I should post it for Christmas that year. Of course, I completely forgot about it, and just found it again.
