Holiday Gift Guide 2022

For the LEGO Fan that has Everything

Author Chris McVeigh has created not just one, but two LEGO Christmas ornament books to show you how to take all those little LEGO parts and turn them into cool ornaments. The LEGO Christmas Ornament Book Vol. 1 & 2 each come with at least 15 designs for ornaments, with the instructions clearly broken down piece by piece.

The books do not come with any actual LEGO pieces, so you’ll need to be one of those organized people that saves and their pieces and not someone like my son who keeps his in various piles around the house.

Nintendo Switch for the Kids (and you)

If your kid doesn’t have one, then they probably want one. The Nintendo Switch has been our most used gaming system, and we have a PS4 and an Xbox. It’s because it’s portable and my son can easily pop it in his carrying case and go anywhere.

Arctic Zone Stainless Steel Insulated Drinkware

Arctic Zone has a full line of coolers and insulated drinkware available at ArcticZone.com. They recently sent fellow cosplayers Fred and Elle a bottle and mug, which they gave a thorough test run at their latest event.

Give Geeky Tea a Try

If you like tea, you have to check out Adagio Tea’s Fandom blends. And even if you don’t like tea, it’s worth getting it just for the cool artsy tins it comes in! They have almost every fandom covered with their unique blends. It’s all loose tea, so if you do get this as a gift, adding some tea bags or a tea strainer pot/cup is a good idea. Or maybe even one of those fancy mugs from the paragraph above!

Fashionably Geeky Accessories

CuffLinks.com offers a very fashionable way to show your geeky side with ties, socks, bracelets, belts and of course, cufflinks featuring your favorite fandoms! They carry Star Wars, Star Trek, Disney, DC, Marvel, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones goods for the grown-up geek. Shown below are the I Love You, I Know Icon cufflinks and Luke Skywalker Lightsaber bracelet. The products are high quality and the packaging on these is really nice as well.

Star Wars Kitchen Set

If you have a Star Wars fan that also loves cooking, there’s a lot of fun items available from small kitchen accessories to pots and pans and small appliances. I have a Millenium Falcon waffle iron myself! This kitchen set is a great idea for a bundled gift with utensils, a Darth Vadar apron and free dishwasher magnet.

Geeky Magnetic Poetry

We had one of these magnetic poetry kits in college and my roommate and I would leave funny poems on the refrigerator for each other all the time. Now there’s a version just for geeks!

Superhero Wearable Blanket

It’s the easiest cosplay ever! The DC Comics Adult Soft Throw Blanket with Sleeves is a comfy and stylishly geeky way to keep warm this winter! Snuggle up as Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Superman or Batman.

When You Can’t Get Enough LEGOs

Brick Loot is a monthly subscription box that would make a great gift for any LEGO and brick fan! Brick Loot subscribers get a monthly themed box filled with 4-8 custom and unique items that work with LEGO® bricks and custom building sets. Click here to see our unboxing on IG Reels.

Each month you’ll know the theme, but not the surprises inside. Boxes feature custom kits, LEGO accessories, minifigures, exclusive items and even kits by famous LEGO designers. You can choose a one month, three month, six month or one year subscription. Check out all the options at BrickLoot.com.

Splurge on the Lovesac X-Box Bundle

Lovesac has teamed up with Xbox for the ultimate gamer gift: a limited edition SuperSac and Xbox Series S console, plus a 3-month Ultimate Game Pass, all for $1,350.  This collaboration is available exclusively in select U.S. Best Buy locations and BestBuy.com, and only available while supplies last.

I hope you enjoyed these few ideas for geeky gifts! I’ll be adding to this gift guide as I find new items. And if you have an item you’d like to see featured on this (or a future) gift guide, send me an e-mail at candy@geekmamas.com for details.
