Here at GeekMom we love handmade gifts and there is nowhere better to shop for something unique and lovingly made than on Etsy. The GeekMoms have rounded up some of our favourite Etsy stores to shop at this holiday season.
The Gorgonist makes stunning beautiful art prints featuring Firefly, X-Men, Lord of The Rings, Professor Layton and so many more that I couldn’t even begin to list them all. There’s also a range of steampunk paintings to choose from.
Joebot creates retro LP (remember them?) artwork based on sci-fi and fantasy classics. The prints are 12.5×12.5 inches so they look like “real” album covers and feature imaginative band names such as “River Tam & The Fireflies” and “The Frakkin Toasters”. You can even buy a double pack which includes the “back” of the album with a full track listing.
Cross Stitch Geek
I am a sucker for cross stitch patterns, the nerdier the better, and they don’t get much nerdier than these designs by Velvet Elvii. The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide, Harry Potter, Portal 2, The Hunger Games and even Inspector Spacetime all have patterns here. One of my favourites is a QR code that actually scans (assuming you stitch it correctly) to read “Home Sweet Home”. Be aware that some items in the store are NSFW although the words are crossed out on the main listings.
