It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is upon us, and therefore, it’s gift guide time! This year, Allison Cimino of RockLove Jewelry gave Geeks of Doom a very special gift – a holiday gift guide just for us! So sit back, relax, and shop away…
Check out Allison’s gift guide below.
Hi, I’m Allison, designer and jeweler of RockLove. Ready to get ALL of your seasonal shopping done in one go? I’ve put together a gift guide that will please all the geeks, nerds, and muggles on your list! Wishing you a Happy Holidays!
Gift for your Mother (who deserves something nice but if she doesn’t stop texting question-marks when you haven’t responded to a message within five seconds, you’ll start hoping she falls into 1743):
Combining the romance of author Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander with traditional Celtic lore and imagery, the glittering blue sandstone gem if reminiscent of a starry Scottish night sky, surrounded by the ancient stones Claire falls through to meet Jamie. On the reverse is a cutout luckenbooth and the prologue phrase “People disappear all the time.”
Gift for your Boyfriend (who uses words like “gorram” and “shiny” like they are normal slang and watches every Nathan Fillion show hoping for a Firefly reference):
This compilation of antiqued medallions includes the Mandarin characters for Serenity, a Browncoat medal with center star cut out (reminiscent of a Chinese coin) and a dogtag with the ship’s silhouette and the beloved phrase “I Aim to Misbehave.” Each component is distressed by hand so no two necklaces are exactly identical, just like his arsenal of one-liners from the show.
Gift for your BFF (because duh, you have to match):
Does not matter if you both are Firefly fans or not because these are crazy adorable and quirky is in. Three dimensional and highly detailed, the solid sterling silver Stegosaurus and Ceratosaurus can really stand. Upgrade those braided besties summer camp bracelets and enjoy the smiles that only tiny dinosaur jewelry can bring.
Gift for your Sister (who isn’t really into any fandoms and doesn’t get your obsession with anime or why you decorate with “toys”):
Hand crafted in sterling silver, a band of mountains and spruce trees is topped by little stackable moon… which can wax or wane depending on which way you flip the crescent. A reminder to travel, to appreciate nature, and something to meditatively spin when feeling fidgety.
Gift for your Dad (my dad is the best so I have nothing cheeky to say here):
Screen accurate Star Trek TOS phaser keychain in which you can “set to stun or kill” depending on your mood. Every father has watched Star Trek at some point in his life, and the piece includes a pun. Enough said.
Gift for that one friend who wears only black (AKA this one is me):
Because chances are they love David Lynch and wear a black jacket decorated with patches and pins (it’s a fashion goth requirement and though we hate jumping on bandwagons, we cannot get enough of the #pingame):
