Hey what's up y'all! I know it's not Halloween yet but that means it's TIME TO START SHOPPING!!! I'm very excited about finding things for my family and my big ol' nerd of a boyfriend this year. :D
Here's my brainstorm ideas thus far -- Please do not steal them from me until I purchase them for myself :P
For my dad!
After Dark flying toasters shirt! After Dark screen savers came out the same year I was born, and I remember watching them with him all the way through elementary school. We STILL make references to them to this day, so this was a really exciting find.
Floppy disk notebook, for any notetaking he does or journaling he'd like to do. I think he'd appreciate "logging off" for a bit and doing something tangible rather than digital, so a notebook could work out well as a stocking stuffer.
Chocolate mouse, WHAT. I love this thing and it's mega cheap considering its unique nature. Another great stocking stuffer.
For my mom!
Mushroom keychain for the weird nature nerd in your life. She hasn't really had a good keychain since the one that was just a human spine, so this seems like a neat option for a stocking stuffer.
Felt caterpillar -- a weird gift? Maybe. A fun one that she can put in the kitchen windowsill next to our plants? Absolutely.
Mantis mug, also for the weird nerd in your life. Mom loves bugs and cool plants and hiking and generally just being a nature geek.
For my boyfriend the Royfriend!
"Now Boob," you might say if you've looked this far. "What the hell is that?" The answer is that it's a customized letter of knighthood from King Baldwin IV, the leper king of Jerusalem. He's a nerd I dunno what else to justify this with. Gotta love that guy tho. Other associated items are various books on medieval culture. You get the gist here.
ANYWAY that's pretty much what I've found so far. Thanks for coming to my excited planning session. Tune in next time for decorations, wrapping, and more appropriately timed posts that don't come before Halloween. Merry Early Christmas everybody!
