Minecraft Stocking Stuffers
Minecraft Creeper Beanie - Shop Minecraft Creeper Scarf - Shop
Foam Pickaxe - Shop Light Up Torch - Shop Foam Sword - Shop
At Christmas time, you are more likely to destroy boxes than build them, but that doesn't mean Minecraft and Christmas can't play nice together! You can bring 2D pixels to 3D life with these 8-bit tools, or keep warm with a creeper hat and scarf. If you have been searching for a geeky Minecraft gift for Christmas, you can add these to you wish list!
Doctor Who Stocking Stuffers
11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver - Shop TARDIS Skinny Tie - Shop TARDIS Slippers - Shop
TARDIS Hat - Shop TARDIS Scarf - Shop TARDIS Knapsack - Shop Fourth Doctor Scarf - Shop
In a year where we talked continuously about time travel (thanks to Back to the Future II, of course) a Time and Relative Dimension in Space, better known as a TARDIS, is bound to be a popular gift idea for Whovians everywhere. Unfortunately these TARDIS gifts can't travel in space, but if you ask Santa he might make them travel right into your stocking...which is, of course, the next best thing!
Star Wars Stocking Stuffers
Ewok Backpack - Shop Stormtrooper Leggings - Shop Darth Vader Clutch - Shop Yoda Hands and Feet - Shop

As if we need another reason to love Star Wars, we have some of the cutest Star Wars stocking stuffers! Any of these gifts would be perfect for the holidays, but especially for December 2015, which marks the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This film will introduce us to new characters, but that doesn't mean we should stop giving love to the old ones. A baby in a Chewbacca onesie? What's cuter than that? A mini Wookiee is just what we want for Christmas!
Superhero Stocking Stuffers
Captain America Socks - Shop Batman Belt - Shop Hulk Scarf - Shop Wolverine Hat - Shop
Superman Hoodie - Shop Batman Over-the-Knee Cape Socks - Shop Wonder Woman Tights - Shop
Every young superhero wannabe, and even the adults who refuse to grow out of that stage, still enjoy a superhero gift or two around the holidays. Captain America socks with wings, a Hulk scarf, or even a Superman hoodie, can easily transform your holiday from ordinary to extraordinary! You don't need to become a literal crimefighting vigilante, but hey, a little pretending never hurts.
Hunger Games Stocking Stuffers
Hunger Games Backpack - Shop Mockingjay Pin - Shop
Katniss Quiver - Shop Katniss Protective Glove - Shop
With the final film release of the novel-based Hunger Games series, Katniss is as popular as ever.

If you are prepared to volunteer as tribute this year, you can suit up with any of these awesome Katniss stocking stuffers!
Lord of the Rings Stocking Stuffers
The One Ring Beanie - Shop The One Ring Scarf - Shop
Halfling Feet - Shop Halfling Leaf Clasp - Shop Hobbit Socks - Shop
Chances are you won't be lucky enough to celebrate Christmas in Middle-earth, but that doesn't mean you can't dress up like a hobbit and roam planet Earth. With our halfling feet slippers you are well on your way to celebrating Christmas with your "relatives." These "One Ring" hat and scarves aren't guaranteed to bestow you with powers of invisibility, but both would make perfect gifts for the Lord of the Rings lovers in your life.

(**Magic spells not included.)
