Cufflinks.com – Star Wars Boba Fett Sculptural Cufflinks

You can always count on Cufflinks.com to have some awesome hardware for your sleeves. I wish we had more room to feature more of their stuff, but we try to pick a couple of our favorites each year so you can get an idea of what they have. This first set is an extremely stylish matte black Boba Fett helmet. These things are just cool. There’s no two ways about it. They are a great way to where your geeky heart on your sleeves, but they are understated enough that you can still wear them to a formal dinner affair.

Cufflinks.com – Star Wars Original Trilogy – Movie Poster Cufflinks

These cufflinks are just too cool for words. The folks at Cufflinks.com have shrunk down the posters from the original Star Wars trilogy and turned them into three amazing sets of cufflinks. I was very impressed at the level of detail that is in the poster art. It is also great that you can buy the three pairs together as a gift set. However, if you really just want people to know that you love The Empire Strikes Back, you can just buy the cufflinks for the movie of your choice for $69.99.

Star Wars Hats

What can I really say about these? The hats are well made, that’s for sure. I look silly as heck in them, but that might be part of their charm. Have you ever wanted the Princess Leia cinnamon bun look without the hours of doing your hair? Now there’s a hat just for you. Personally, I think I looked better in the Wampa hat than the Princess Leia hat, but then again, who wants to see a princess with a Goatee. At around twenty dollars a pieces, these hats make a great gift or stocking stuffer for just about any Star Wars enthusiast in your life.

Mysweetnovember Zombie Jewelry

We don’t often include Etsy creators in the holiday gift guide, but we loved the creepy necklaces from Mysweetnovember so much that we wanted them in this year’s edition. At only around $15.00 a piece, the make for great stocking stuffers. We were very impressed with the level of detail they were able to bring out in their cameo necklaces of skeletons and the undead. These were just our favorites, but their store is worth looking through as there are tons of other great items as well.

Necomimi – Robotic Cat Ears

If I was a petite, busty woman, there is a pretty good chance that I would never take off the Necomimi Robotic cat ears, but as I’m a stocky dude with facial hair, I am not sure I really pull these things off as well as I’d hoped. The claim on the ears is that they can sort of read your thought patterns and then translate that into robotic movement of the cat ears. Does it do that? Well, it’s doing something. you slip on the ears and then put one sensor on your forehead and the other on your ear. The ears twitch for a few minutes until they sync up with your mind and then they begin to start moving to meet your mood and thought patterns. This is a perfect gift for anyone in your life who cosplays or just likes to walk down the street and be noticed. Also, if you have a girlfriend, she’ll probably look extremely cute in them.

Crowded coop portal 2 scarves

I wish they had scarves like this when I was a kid, growing up in New England. Crowded Coop has released two really great looking scarves that just came out and make perfect holiday gifts. I have to say, the scarves are not only very warm, but they are also extremely soft and comfortable. The two versions that are available are a black and white scarf with the Aperture Labs logo and Portal symbol and the one I really like most, which features the chamber squares on one side and the logo and robots on the other.

Crowded Coop Portal Chell Jumpsuit Messenger Bag

Crowded Coop did a really good job on this padded, Portal Messenger Bag. The bag is a great size at 22-inches wide x 13-inches tall x 3-inches long. It also has a great design that not only covers the front of the bag, but also continues with a great Portal graphic on the inside of the bag as well. You can easily carry a tablet or lap top in this bag and still have room for more. We already know a lot of people who are asking to find this bag under the tree!

Crowded coop portal Chell Jumpsuit tote bag

If you like the Messenger Bag but aren’t looking for something quite so large, the tote bag is is a great gift for you. It still features a lot of the same great Portal design and padding, but it is a much more compact, 12” bag with shoulder straps.

Baby Glow Hyper Color Temperature Monitoring Baby Wear

Do you have any new parents on your gift list this year? If so, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen for babies… and for over protective parents. This onesy is actually hypercolor and will change color based on your baby’s body temperature. That means that when you are worried your baby might have a fever, just make sure they are wearing this and you can tell how hot they are by the color of their outfit. It is a clever gift and it can give new parents a lot of peace of mind.

Kinekt Designs Gear Ring

This is still one of the hands down, coolest pieces of Jewelry that we’ve seen. We first featured this ring back in 2010, but they’ve tweaked the design to make the gears slide even easier now. This is the perfect gift for people who love puzzle rings and things like that that have moving parts. These stainless steel rings actually have moving gears in them that can be rotated while on your finger. Each ring is handmade and its available in sizes from 5 - 20. It’s a great all around gift and an excellent accessory for that person in your life who always needs something to fidget with.

Kinekt Designs T-shirt

We’ve admired the work of the Kinekt Design people for a long time now and they are just starting to spread their wings into things like women’s t-shirts. We loved this shirt they have. The design that flows from gears to flowers is just a great thing and would look perfect on women who appreciate nature and technology.

Bridge Direct Shoulder Buddies Hello Kitty

Stocking stuffers for girls ages 6 -12, that is what these will be perfect for. The Shoulder Buddies are little figurines that were created specifically to sit on your shoulder. They are designed to inspire positive attitudes and behavior. Along with having their own line of characters, they also come in great licenses like Hello Kitty. Girls love to wear, collect and trade them with their friends and they are starting to get very popular so you should grab them while you can.

Manic Panic Eyeshadow Compact

Perfect for geek girls you love or if you’re a geek girl yourself. Manic Panic Cassette Compact makeup recreates the nostalgic of a personalized cassette tape in the form of a pre-filled eye shadow compact. Like a mixtape, it comes with both a Side A and B of 80s-inspired color combination. You can mix and match and even refill the compact with your preferred color of choice. The compact includes a mirror, brush and wrist strap, as well as a hidden slot to hold cash and cards. Best of all though, you won’t ever have to worry about needing to fix this “cassette” with a pen. If you’re old enough to understand that, then you’re old enough to appreciate the Manic Panic cassette Compact.
