Our Top 10 Holiday “Gifts for Geeks”

Of course, we all have at least one lovable Geek in our lives and sometimes finding the perfect gift can be challenging.  Today, we are here to help.   Here are  our Top 10  “Gifts for Geeks.”

1. You must have one social media fan in your life…and when it is time to rest his/her  internet weary head on something…voila…the perfect pillow.  These gems are truly one of a kind, handmade by Craftsquatch.  We all love unique gifts that capture a smile and these social media pillows do just that.  12″x12″ square and made of the softest fleece around.  Grab yours today before they are gone into cyberspace!

Twitter Bird $28

Google $28

RSS Icon $28

2. We think every Geek has quietly wished for his or her very own warm, snugly pair of Footie Pajamas. Perfect for video gaming, programming, reading, relaxing or just talking to Mom on Skype.  Choose from a fabulous selection here for Geeks of all ages.

Red Fleece $48

Navy Plaid Flannel $44

3. We know Geeks love Tee Shirts with a sense of humor and we have just that in our full of fun Be As You Are collection.

Game Over $24

Call Me Text Me $24

4. It’s quite possible that your Geek has one or two foibles, quirks, dare we say dysfunctions?  Our Inner Truth Journals might be just the thing for those late night scribbles.

My Dysfunctions Inner-Truth Journal $18

5. Is there anything nicer than a bright red snowman print flannel pajama for the holidays?  We think not.

Red Snowman $52

6. After hours of computing or gaming, extreme hunger is inevitable and we have the perfect solution…Chocolate of course.  Our Emergency Chocolate Bar is designed for “Immediate relief of Chocolate Cravings, Lovesickness, Exam Pressure,  Mild Anxiety and Extreme Hunger.”

Emergency Chocolate $10

7. A little bit of Pinstripe can go a long way. Instead of going for the full Pinstripe Suit with polished tasseled loafers, we kind of like the simple Boxer. Made of fine Egyptian cotton, the boxer is  a great look for lounging and doesn’t require much effort for your sometimes slightly disheveled Geek.

Pinstripe Boxer $19.99

8. We hate to stereotype but is it possible  your favorite Geek might just have one or perhaps multiple furry, fluffy roomates who purr and enjoy  a nice saucer of milk?

Sleeps With Cats Nightshirt $28

9. We know Geeks are generally task oriented and even a bit on the bossy side so again, we have the perfect Gift in the form of a List just for the Holidays.  Our Things You Must Do For The Holidays Notepad includes these tasks:  “Believe in Santa, Dress up the pets, Max out a credit card, Channel Martha, Wear a Santa Hat, Buy me Everything, Learn to Snowboard.”  (Did we mention sometimes Geeks can be task oriented?)

Things You Must Do For The Holidays $8

10. When it’s 2 am and time for a little shut eye or even 3 pm and time for that power nap, the Midnight Mask is the perfect way to create solitude and reset those creative juices.  We know Geeks have to step away from the keyboard, put down the controller, and close the book every now and then.

Midnight Mask $10

Bedtime Stories We Love

The bedside lamp is turned low, the covers form a cushy fortress of wool and knitted quilt, and the air is electric with anticipation. In a few moments, our parents or older relatives will crack the spine of our favorite bedtime story, opening a portal into a world we will never forget. No matter how old we become, the stories that are read to us as children remain in our memories until we pass those stories on to our children, forming a generational tapestry of imagination.

So it is with “Goodnight, Moon,” one of the most beautiful bedtime stories ever written. With spare, elegant prose, and lush illustrations that invite you to linger in the pages of the book long after you have fallen asleep, “Goodnight, Moon” is the story of a bunny rabbit who wishes every item in the house a good night’s rest. Simple, yet affecting, this book was originally published in 1947, and remains a staple of nighttime storytelling.

While still on a bunny rabbit theme, the adventures of “Bunnicula” are excellent bedtime fare for the slightly older child. The amusing stories of a vampire bunny, as told by the family’s dog Harold, will encourage kids to develop not only their imaginations, but their sense of humor and adventure.

Picture-based books, especially those that feature glossy, full color photographs or renderings of fantastic ancient cultures, will enrich a child’s dreams, and invigorate the desire to explore. “See Inside an Egyptian Town” features detailed cross-sections of ancient Egyptian dwellings, palaces, and pyramids. Nothing is more exciting than the sensation of being able to peer into the past, especially when that past involves such magnificent monuments and artifacts as ancient Egypt.

Despite the fact that the “The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” was deemed to be suitable bedtime reading for the characters of the grandfather and grandchild in the television series “Mad Men,” analytical historical texts should not necessarily be employed as a way to put children to sleep. However, more complex fictional fare, such as Madeline L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” can make for quite exciting bedtime reading for exceptionally advanced children. A child will never forget the experience of reading an entire novel, night by night.

No matter the specific book, bedtime stories instill in us a feeling of being loved. To read, and be read to, is an experience that stays with us long after the lights have been turned off.

Here are a few of our featured bedtime stories just for kids:

Bear Snores On is a sweet story about a bear who just loves to sleep $16

It’s Too Soon is about a little bunny who isn’t quite ready for bed $14.95

Little Quack’s Bedtime is about bedtime for Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, Puddle and Little Quack  $14.95

The Life of Pajamas is about how one very special pair of pajamas spends the day $11

Footie Fun

Footed pajamas are often thought of as night wear for small kids, but both teens and adults are now wearing footies again!  Many older people like footie pajamas because they bring back memories of the fun they had in their childhood. Historians disagree on the history of the footed pajama. Some say they were brought from Persia in the 1800s, while others claim India was the place of origin and that they were brought to the West in 1880. The word “pajama” itself according to linguists originates from an Indian word meaning “leg clothes.”Pajamas rapidly grew in popularity in Europe where they helped people stay warm during the cold winter nights. By 1898, footed pajamas were advertised for sale in London, and their popularity continued to grow from that point.So why are footie pajamas so warm? Well, the fact that the pajamas are one-piece helps prevent heat from escaping too far from the body. With non-footie pajamas there are a lot of “vents” that allow the warmth generated by the human body to dissipate. The footie traps this warmth and allows it to circulate throughout the inside of the pajama area including around the feet. Since the feet are often the first thing to get cold, the footie pajama was really a blessing in helping people get to sleep in cold climates. Even in the modern age with our centrally heated homes, we can still use footed pajamas to help keep the heating bill lower while still sleeping comfortably.  In fact, saving electricity on heating also has the added benefit of reducing our impact on the environment.

While footed pajamas were originally popular with people of all ages, they eventually became worn mainly by children because of their sensitivity to the cold. However, teens and adults are again taking to these comfortable pajamas both for their warmth, and because they bring back cherished memories from their youth. Footed pajamas are just plain fun for all ages.  We think you will love our great selection of footies from Big Feet Pajama Company, Footzies and Snug as a Bug.
