With each passing year, we add a little more sugar, spice, and geekiness to our Christmas tree, and I love it a little more. Because we’ve had Star Wars on the brain, we’ve made several additions in that vein, including the best nutcracker ever conceived. And after much searching, contemplation, and meditation, we finally added a tree topper for the first time. Jeff found the perfect one. Praise Cthulhu!

This holiday season, show some love for the geeks in your life with a personal gift that says, “Hey, I get you.” The Internet is a magical place with an abundance of geeky gifts for gamers, gear-heads, and comic book aficionados. We’ve scoured the Internet to bring you some of the best geeky gift ideas in one place:
Whether you look on Etsy for a Triforce necklace or Think Geek for Portal 2 bookends, there are so many great gifts for gamers.
For us, December means slowly adding more ornaments to a geeky and eclectic Christmas tree. Last year, we collected skulls, Star Wars ornaments, and a few Halloween-themed ornaments for our first tree together. This year we’ve added some super cool Star Wars stockings, a Raphael ninja turtle, and a nostalgic movie theater. I’m sure we won’t be able to resist adding more as the season progresses. And if any of you have suggestions for geeky tree toppers, we’re all ears!
(Star Wars stockings— we had a hard time choosing– there’s also a cool Chewy one)
We’ve been busily enjoying time off from work and general holiday merriment, but we wanted to share a quick post with some more of our Christmas geekery. We hope everyone has a happy winter solstice with good memories and, of course, good food!

We don’t swoon over Christmas the way we do for Halloween, but we’ve picked up some pretty cool decorations that are slowly melting my ice-cold heart. Here are some things we’ve obtained in the interest of holiday cheer:
1. Popcorn Ornament. Hallmark. $7.95.
It says, “I like you more than movie popcorn with butter!” That says a lot, really.
2. Geeky Wrapping Paper. ThinkGeek. $3.99–$5.99.
We’ve made it a small tradition to get our wrapping paper exclusively from ThinkGeek (except for the one with Justin Bieber’s face plastered on it that we got from Target– no joke). This year we stocked up on the Holiday Zombies and Christmas Bots, but the Non-denominational paper is also a winner. We also got some bacon wrapping paper, because BACON. Link here.
