I hate malls.
There, I said it. I hate them the way Harry Potter hates Death Eaters. Or the way Frodo hates Sauron.*
(*See what I did there? I just introduced the theme of this week’s gift guide! Sneaky as a sneakoscope.)
I hate traipsing around in winter boots in overheated and overcrowded malls at Christmastime. I hate the junky, rage-inducing holiday pop music being piped in. Go ahead: play Mariah One. More. Time. I dare you.
I AM a big fan of getting holiday shopping done early and painlessly. And I’m willing to bet that you are too. To this end, I have rounded up some of my top gift picks, all conveniently purchasable on the INTERNET! *Cue Hallelujah Chorus*
Today’s gift guide is dedicated to the people on your list who love nothing more than to get into a five-hour fandom conversation. Or the people who can’t help but make science puns. Or the people who are silently correcting my grammar. (Please know that I hesitate every time I start a sentence with “and”. The struggle is real.)

I was approached by the lovely Vanessa of Veelightful, who asked if I might be interested in including some of her… get this… nerdy bath products (yes, you read that correctly)! I asked if she’d be willing to offer one of YOU a free product and she said YES!
I think Veelightful’s products would make perfect stocking stuffers. They are reasonably priced and will definitely make people chuckle. 🙂

Glad it was helpful!
I avoid malls like the plague…ALL YEAR LONG!
They truly are awful.
I love these! I just bought my daughters geeky stocking stuffers. Snitch necklace and How to Train your Dragon bracelet.
YES! I bet they’ll love them.
These are all so much fun!!
Hi, Sarah ~ I so enjoyed this Nerd Gift Guide! I’m willing to admit that I have a little more nerd than the average person. In my family we all have our own Star Wars names. You’re looking at Tif Fisto. ;0) I’m going to have to get my hands on the Millennium Falcon poster. So great! Pinning this. Thanks for sharing!
I’m so glad you enjoyed it – that poster is one of my favourites, too!
Great finds, especially the viking mobile!
Isn’t that cool???!! Our future kids are going to be the weirdest/coolest. 🙂
Haha! My husband is a nerd and these ideas are excellent! I must get that onesie for our friends!
Haha! My husband is a nerd and these ideas are excellent! I must get that onside for our friends!
We’re all a little nerdy at heart, I think… 🙂
Oh my goodness – I am definitely buying the butter beer tea for my best friend! How fun!
Doesn’t that sound delicious???
So cute! I think there is a little nerd in all of us!
My son is just getting into Star Wars, this is a great list!
I’m so glad! May the force be with him.
You have some great ideas here. (Are you going to hate me when I tell you I’ve never read Harry Potter? Nor seen the movies?… Ummm. Maybe THAT’S what I need for Christmas!) I will, however, state that I also have trouble starting sentences with “and”, but know that sometimes necessary to keep it conversational English.
Well now you’ve found out what you need for Christmas! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by.
I’ll have one of everything! I agree with you about the post-card looking pictures. How great for a kid’s room?!
Yes, I love everything and would love to use some of this for kids’ decor.
I don’t wanna be dramatic (snort) but I might have just fallin in love with your space. Zomg.
Hahaha thank you Lorey!
Love, love, love the items that you found here. They’re so fun!
Thanks Melissa! I hope you had a chance to enter the giveaway!
Well this just falls perfectly in line with the monthlong HP movie marathon I initiated to introduce some (poor lost) friends to the world of HP! Thanks for this!!!
Awesome! We also recently re-watched all the movies. And I may have re-read all the books. They are just perfect for a cozy evening!
Those travel posters are the best *hint hint*
Hahahaha duly noted.
Oh, wow! I love ALL of these options! The T-shirt is hilarious! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
