Here’s a fun set: Video Game Controller Soaps
Digitalsoaps has a lovely assortment of soaps modeled after your favorite video game controllers. Unfortunately, it looks like this one-woman show is oversold for the next few months, and any order you place won’t arrive until March! But, if your special someone is patient, these would make a great gift for any gamer.
Buy This: You asked for it, you got it: Becky Stern’s elegent ASCII Heart Necklace is finally available for purchase!
This 1.5 inch tall Sterling silver pendant is handmade from 1mm thick sheet and tubing, depicting the internet-savvy sentiment <3, an ascii heart!

Available with a 19 inch long 3mm leather cord or Sterling silver chain. Finished with a Sterling clasp and packaged in a black jewelry gift box.
Geeky ladyfriend sold separately.
Oh, hello shiny.
Yes. It’s that time of year where you begin thinking about what
you other people might want for the holidays—a time of giving. Let me help you with that. Here are some gift ideas ranging from the very reasonable to the bizarrely extravagant:
1. A Star Trek II TWOK replica phaser, $30
This toy should make any die-hard trek fan happy. Comes with a removable type-1 phaser. I can’t wait to
buy give this to someone for the holidays!
2. A Serenity Tote Bag, $10
This bag would make a nice gift for anyone who misses Firefly. So simple, so inexpensive, so easy. I miss Firefly.
3. BSG Senior Officer Pin Set , $29.99
Instead of telling someone how much you love them this holiday season, why not promote them? Actions speak louder than words.
4. Stargate Atlantis Gate Necklace, $715.50
Now that’s an odd price. $715.50? Is that how much it costs to open a tiny, stable wormhole to the Pegasus Galaxy?
You’ve got two days left!
1. LED Flashlight Lightsaber- $24.99
I know, getting your dad a flashlight for father’s day is kind of lame. But, getting your dad a LIGHTSABER flashlight that makes the whooshing sound when you turn it on is kind of cool. With this flashlight, you’ll hope the power goes out so you can save the day! Buy it here.
2. Life-size Cylon Centurion Reproduction- $8590
3. Disappearing Image Star Trek Transporter Mug- $9.99
If you can’t afford to spend $8590, this mug looks like a fun way to liven those groggy mornings. The image disappears when you pour hot beverages in! The mysterious lead/cadmium warning, however, is a bit disconcerting…Buy it here.
4. Colonial Raptor: Unspecified Cost
If you really loved your father, you’d buy him a Colonial Raptor from the set of Battlestar Galactica. Sure, it doesn’t fly, and yes, it’s HUGE. But…think of how much more fun it will be to go home for Christmas when everyone can take turns “flying” the raptor? Buy it here.
Here’s something that might come in handy: A notebook, without those pesky corners. I know what you’re thinking. Why not buy a notebook, cut the corners off, and make your own BSG notebook? Cause it’s easier to buy it here!
