I’m using the term “geeky” broadly here.
I started this guide last year, which you can read here, and decided to do a follow-up and include more small businesses. And like I said, I don’t think “geeky” should just be limited to TV shows and movies, but anything that excites you.
Some still include TV shows and movies though.
And I want to say none of these are sponsored.
I first bought their items a few years ago and love the quality. They create shirts and bags and not only are the designs great, but affordable. They range from Doctor Who to Hamilton and include gift sets as well.
The shop owner, Cassie, is also a blogger whose blog you can read here. She creates hand-drawn artwork from prints to Instagram story covers and social media icons. Not only that, but Cassie created my blog logo and is quick to respond to any questions.
AND, she has given me a code SCRIBBLES25 for anyone to use until December 27th to get 25% off her Etsy shop.
You’ve heard of air plants, you’ve heard of crystals. This one puts the two together to create a one-of-a-kind gift. I recently discovered Air Friend while browsing for holiday presents. The boxes range from birthday to Christmas or just to give someone for no other reason than they rock.
Also comes with plant food.
This one is aimed more at your writing friend or anyone that’s interested in becoming better. I reviewed Scribbler a few weeks ago and highly recommend trying it out just as a gift to see if you want to subscribe. You can buy a past box or go under their “writer’s gifts” link to search for specific items from each box in case you don’t want to buy the whole thing.
This is a store that creates jewelry for different causes. An example would be their bracelets: one bead is infused with water from Mt. Everest and another carries mud from the Dead Sea, the highest and lowest points on Earth.
My personal favorite is the “Cause Collection” that gives 10% of the money to the specific cause. They can range from Animal Rescue to Breast Cancer and Pride.
I absolutely love the idea of these cards. A set of 20 different cards with inspirational sayings is only $13.35 (for those of us in the US.) You can keep them for yourself whenever you need a “nudge” of motivation or give them out to your friends and family.
Portable phone chargers have been my best friend for the last few months as my grandpa was in the hospital. SubbyTech is out of Ireland and ships free to the UK and Ireland. You can charge more than one phone at once, which is incredibly handy.
And they have a sale running from now until Christmas. Use the code XMAS to get 10% off.
We have to include the pets as well. I started using Geopetric when I saw they make bandanas for your dog (or pig, whatever you have) to keep them cool when it’s hot. They also make collars, leashes, puppy starter kits, and for cats as well.
I’m actually an affiliate of Geopetric and if you use the code GOLDENLUNA you can get 20% off your purchase. They’re also running sales from now until Christmas. 10% of their profits are donated to animal rescue leagues around the world, which is one of the reasons I became an affiliate.
Hopefully, this helps someone out with their gift shopping and if you have any recommendations, feel free to leave them in the comments x
