The Ink-Stained Amazon’s Holiday Gift Guide For Geeks Day 5!Jennifer K. Stuller on December 5, 2010 in Uncategorized
I know there are several of you that have been just as excited for this as I am – Day 5 of the Ink-Stained Amazon’s Holiday Gift Guide for Geeks is For The Joss Whedon Fan! Whether your Whedon Geek loved Buffy, hated Dollhouse, knows all the words to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog, or is a Browncoat, there is something here for every kind of Whedonian!
The Slayer Scythe is a totally cool, but rather pricey gift for the Buffy fan with a lot of room in their home – or their own Slayer army.
The Ink-Stained Hubby picked me up a Buffy iPhone GelaSkin last year in the UK and I’m always getting compliments on it. Would make a great stocking stuffer for your Buffy Geek!
Stay clean with a bar of Browncoat Field Ration Soap from Geeky Clean – another great stocking stuffer!
Is your geek planning to join the Evil League of Evil? Well then they’ll need a Dr. Horrible Lab Coat T-Shirt!
I’ve already gone through one set of Yummy Sushi Pajamas – and another is on my personal holiday wish list. If Buffy didn’t look commanding in them your Geek probably won’t either. But they will be just as cute!
If your Geek doesn’t own Buffy the Vampire Slayer The Complete Series they’ll need it so they can participate in the upcoming Great Buffy Rewatch. Organized by Nikki Stafford and taking place on Tuesday nights throughout 2011, the rewatch will feature a variety of amazing contributors.
How about a copy of the adapted “Smile Time” episode of Angel for your Angel fan? “Smile Time” was, of course, inspired by The Muppets. The comic book version of the darkly hilarious episode is collected here with 2 other puppet-related stories.
Your Angel Geek might also enjoy an Angel Investigations T-shirt.
As a member of the Whedon Studies Association, a Whedon geek, and a pop culture scholar and historian I’m tempted to list a whole bunch of book recommendations for your Geek, but think you should just peruse The Slayage Whedonverses Bookstore. Really, it’s full of Awesome Sauce.
Finally, there are always great Whedonverse themed items on Etsy!
For example, what geek wouldn’t love a shiny Holiday Sock inspired by Jayne Cobb’s knitted hat?
Personally, I’m debating getting 2 of these mini-Jayne Cobb hats for our Maltese (and resident Whedonians/research assistants), Giles and Wesley.
Is your Geek Grrrl always letting you know that Whedon is her master now? Does she need to let the world know with earrings that say so?
Take notes at the next Biennial Slayage Conference on the Whedonverses with this handmade Buffy journal. The front & back covers feature actual comic pages from the Season 8 comics. You can even ask the artist to design one for you that focuses on a particular character or specific issue from the series.
These Slayer Scythe earrings are the absolute coolest. (And, yeah, they’re so cool I actually already went ahead and ordered a pair for myself.)
