I know that Easter isn’t a huge gift givin holiday, but that doesn’t stop me from going all heart eyes for cute, springy things this time of year. Though I don’t expect any of this stuff in my basket (yes I still get a basket and it says “Princess” on it, so), there are some really cute things that I would love to become a part of my collections.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year fellow fangirls and fanboys! The time of year where we all reflect on the past year and be thankful for what we have, and then wish for more! But seriously what is more exciting than filling out a wish list? It’s become a pastime of mine, it’s like pre-shopping. There’s no commitment, just wishing for the pretty things you see on your screen. Anyway, this is my first year doing the wish list here at Fan Girls Are We and I am excited to see what my fellow writers are wishing for this year.
Now my wish lists are vast and varied but to fit with the theme I narrowed it down to some very geektastic items and tried to pick a couple of fun categories. Maybe I will inspire some of you out there to add to your wish lists! Let’s get started!
I like to consider myself a very practical nerd. When it comes to buying and giving gifts I like to go with things you’ll really use. So consider this a practical nerds holiday gift guide.
Oh, Fangirls. I have missed you so dearly. Over the last few months, I have been far, far away from Fangirls Are We, studying beverage in the wild land of college. Needless to say, spending my days in lectures on wine & spirits, writing essays about bitters, and touring breweries have deeply impacted the things my Fangirl Heart is craving this holiday season. Fellow cocktail nerds, rejoice!Read More »
Fangirls (and Fanboys, and everyone inbetween) that time is upon us again. The Holidays.
Also known as the time when I receive anything that my family can find emblazoned with Steve Rogers on it. While I *love* Steve, I’m trying ever so hard to get my family and friends to realize that my nerdy interests are broad and ever-reaching!
For those confused by the name in the author field here, allow me to introduce myself.
I’m Marty Day, and besides being a giant nerd, I am one of the co-hosts for the super awesome, super rad traveling live art competition, Super Art Fight.
Your fine editor is looking to get awesome Holiday Wish Lists from many different folks – and perhaps foolishly, I’ve ended up in the mix as a proper fanboy to help you fangirls pick out awesome geeky gifts for the gentlemen in your life.
So, here goes – awesome gift suggestions for the holidays.

True confessions: I am not a Christmas person. Nope, Halloween is my holiday! It’s not that I don’t enjoy ‘the most wonderful time of the year’, there are genuinely some aspects of the holiday season that I love: homemade butter cookies we make with my Great Grandma’s antique cookie press, hot chocolate in front of a fire, decorating a big bushy pine tree, hanging out with my siblings… Making my dog wear adorable sweaters! (Cute dog+cute sweater is like my kryptonite!) But when they start putting Christmas items in stores before October has even begun and airing commercials for Christmas sales it kinda makes me wish I was a necromancer or mad evil scientist so I could unleash the zombie apocalypse the day after Thanksgiving on all the insane ‘Black Friday’ shoppers. I despise how commercial Christmas is, and hordes of holiday shoppers are practically zombies already… Yes, I know, it’s practically Grinchy! (Maybe if I put Santa hats on all the zombies?) If it was left up to me, I’d totally skip the nightmare of holiday shopping and I’d stay home enjoying a big cup of tequila spiked hot cocoa (add a pinch of cayenne for an adult version of Mexican hot chocolate!) and binge watch every Christmas horror movie ever made, starting with that perennial favorite, “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
