The holiday season is wrapping up and I am currently undertaking the task of finding somewhere to put all of my excellent gifts. I have to admit I was a bit spoiled this year (and every other year). It seems my family and friends have noticed that I’m a crazy fangirl because they specifically spoiled me with lots of fandom-related presents. It occurred to me that it would be fun if I, along with the other fangirls & boys of this blog, did a Fangirl Christmas Haul. Hopefully you’ll find it useful for future gift ideas for both yourself & others
As a quick disclaimer, I’m not trying to brag or anything with this. I realize my friends and I are very lucky to have received all of this wonderful stuff. We just thought it might be helpful & enjoyable to share.
I am happy to link to the items when I can. Of course they are all gifts so I’m not sure where some are from. And on some occasions we bought up the only one available on Etsy. I will do my best to link a close match, the Etsy shop it was from or somewhere you might be able to find a similar item. Happy Browsing!
(1.) A “Talk Nerdy to Me” Shirt, perfect for a nerdy Engineer. My mom picked mine up in Houston but you can get other fun NASA merchandise online. (2.) A Comic Book Print Skater Skirt. (3.) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merch including a V-Neck T-Shirt, Knee-High Michelangelo Socks (I can’t find my exact ones but here are some other fun ones) + Vanilla Milk Straws (because those should obviously be TMNT themed…?). (4.) Speaking of socks I received pairs that make me think of Godzilla (by ‘Sock It To Me’) (Rawr!) & Frozen (by Xhilaration). (5.) I received a hilarious One Direction Hair Bow from KG, while she got a Necklace inspired by Liam’s tattoo from me. (6.) Justine got a Map Scarf. (7.) While I got a Math Equation Scarf. (8.) And a Doctor Who Fourth Doctor Scarf!!! My awesome mom spent hours knitting me one. You can find a pattern here, but you can also buy them on Etsy (although they aren’t cheap).
FOR THE HOME
(1.) A terrifying Dalek Pillow that says “EXTERMINATE” at you when you roll onto it. (2.) Rupee Soaps, so washing your hands is like getting paid. (3.) Union Jack Duck Tape because I’m a anglophile. (4.) KG & Justine both received From the Page Book-themed Scented Candles in such fun scents as 221B Baker Street, Peeta’s Cakes, & Winterfell. (5.) KG also received Lyric Pictures made by yours truly for past posts about Taylor Swift & One Direction.
(1.) Two Board Games: Dominion + Pandemic. (2.) KG got a Hufflepuff Bookmark because she’s a Hufflepuff…no matter what she says. (3.) Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips…sound like it might momentarily fill the void Percy Jackson has left. (4.) The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su + Kate Rorick because I am obsessed with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. (5.) Johnny Rico (of Mangirling) got his very own Apple Jack…what a Bronie. (6.) Stickers of Superheroes Riding My Little Ponies…which is a thing apparently. (7.) Star Wars Lego (SQUEEEEEL): a small X-Wing Fighter and a big AT AT.
