What’s that? Christmas is coming, and you’ve not nearly finished your shopping yet? What you really need is a guided tour of the Geek Native shop and someone to make some suggestions for you?
Good news. We can do that.
Geek Native mugs
Mugs are a good choice for students or anyone renting or buying property for the first time. Year two into paying a rent or mortgage and there’s a risk anyone has more mugs than money, though!
You can browse Geek Native’s entire collection of mugs here but here’s two as a sample.
Ignore my browser history!
Are you a GM or author who ends up typing lots of weird and worrying queries into Google? Do you know one? This mug is for you.
Famous Last Words: Hey you! Bitch queen of the spiders!
Oh dear! This famous last word quote is from Geek Native’s old archive of the last things player characters have said in an RPG. This particular quote seems fitting for some office settings, too!
Geek Native pillows
Cosy pillows are, hopefully, an original idea for a geeky gift. They work pretty well, though, as gamers are as prone as anyone else as long shifts around the table, in the chair in front of the console or TV screen or even sitting on the floor.
You can check out Geek Native’s entire pillow collection here and see a sample or two below.
Dice hate me
If in a former life you angered the god of chance and you are haunted by that crime today then make the most of it! Why not decorate your gaming room with this ‘dice hate me’ throw pillow? Perhaps it can be handed to whoever has had the worst luck on the dice in the night’s gaming session.
This dragon was inspired by a GM who would put days into preparing for a weekly tabletop session only to tire herself out for game night. Every home needs at least one sleepy dragon.
Geek Native Stationery
We should be in safe territory with stationery gift purchases for geeks! Geek Native’s full collection is here and a sample hardback notebook shown below.
On one side this hardcover journal simply says ‘GM!’.
What’s wrong with that? Open up the book fully and you’ll see you’re dealing with a killer GM!
Geek Native Fashion
An uber-category! Fashion is the parent section to many sorts of sub-fashions. It’s more complex than a skill tree. Check out the full shop here or enjoy some samples below.
Texts From Kobold Hoodie
One of Geek Native’s most popular posts is this exchange between a bored kobold and their wizard master.
This little fellow first appeared in the Eye Tyrant’s Day Planner article, which wasn’t very popular, but the t-shirt design as gone down much better.
Weather Balloon / Aliens T-Shirt
Off Duty LARP Monster
You can’t be in kit chasing players around the field all the time. It’s true, even if they do deserve it. This t-shirt is something to change into after a hard day and night being the baddie.
Off Duty Gamemaster
Who says you need a GM’s screen to remind people of your unique position at the gaming table? A little fashion can help hugely.
There you have it! Ten suggestions from Geek Native’s very own merch store that might be worth a look at if you’re looking for Christmas shopping inspiration.
Don’t forget that the Christmas 2018 card design is Santa Claws.
Redbubble Discount Codes
Redbubble powers Geek Native’s store, they sometimes have codes that’ll get you a chunk of money off at the till but don’t let us share them in advance. The solution? This little spreadsheet widget that checks to see if there’s a known discount available today.
