There are so many official and fan-made items for Star Trek on the internet, how do you find what you need? We here at Geek Girl Authority have scrounged around the internet to bring you a few ideas. Be sure to look through last year’s Star Trek gift guide for more gifts options!
With the cooler weather, warmer clothing is a must! BadWolfClothingUK has a gorgeously understated Star Trek hoodie. The pullover is black with a silver communicator badge embroidered on the left breast. Three lining color options are available to get the right division for every fan. Multiple sizes are available, from Small to 5XL, and this gift begins at $33.19 on Etsy.
Do you know someone accident prone? Why not get them the ultimate gag gift: a Red Shirt red shirt! Etsy’s AmericanLifeStore‘s tee includes the playful warning not to get too attached to the wearer – they may not make it back from that next away mission! The shirt is available up to a 5XL and starts at $25.50.
Does your Star Trek fan have a communicator badge collection? Is it complete? Not to be confused with the Black Badge Division in Wynonna Earp, Startrek.com has the Black Badge communicator signifying the Star Trek: Discovery‘s top secret research personnel. The insignia badge has the split that was first created on Discovery and is the perfect replica of what was shown on screen. It is listed for $14.99.
Wireless earbuds have become a necessity with so many phone manufacturers ditching the standard headphone jack in favor of wireless transmittance. Less wires and less plugs means a cleaner and sleeker look. But that may also mean new headphones or earbuds; why stick to the generic pair that came with the phone when you can upgrade to something that shows your pride in your fandom? ThinkGeek has a pair of Vulcan Ear earbuds that not only sit inside the ear, but also loop over top of the ear! Form and function! The earbuds only come in one flesh color, designed to match the original Spock’s skin tone, and retail for $44.99.
Whether spoiling a fan for the holidays or buying a housewarming gift, you can’t go wrong with the Star Trek 4-Piece Dinner Set! The set includes a dinner plate, a dessert plate, a bowl, and a coffee mug; the perfect setting for one. Get multiple sets to complete a family-size serving set or get one set to single out the true fan at the dinner table. A set is listed for $39.99 at ThinkGeek.
Does your Star Trek fan love cats? There’s an official Star Trek Cats picture book and it has spawned a sequel and a full blown 2019 calendar! Give the gift of an entire year of cats dressed as Star Trek: The Next Generation characters! The calendar can be found at ThinkGeek and retails for $14.99.
Star Trek fan John Scalzi wrote a little novel in 2013 called Redshirts. While this isn’t an official Star Trek tale, it takes a little poke at the Red Shirt Curse! New and used copies are available with a new hardcover listed at $28.99 and a new paperback listed for $13.07.
From the cover:
Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. It’s a prestige posting, with the chance to serve on “Away Missions” alongside the starship’s famous senior officers.
Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to realize that 1) every Away Mission involves a lethal confrontation with alien forces, 2) the ship’s senior officers always survive these confrontations, and 3) sadly, at least one low-ranking crew member is invariably killed. Unsurprisingly, the savvier crew members below decks avoid Away Missions at all costs.
Then Andrew stumbles on information that transforms his and his colleagues’ understanding of what the starship Intrepid really is…and offers them a crazy, high-risk chance to save their own lives.
Redshirts by John Scalzi is the winner of the 2013 Hugo Award for Best Novel.
Whether you are looking for a cookie cutter to bake for your Star Trek fan or to give as a gift to them, Etsy’s Smiltroy has options for you! Shown here is the Live Long and Prosper Cookie Cutter, but there are several other designs to choose from. The cookie cutters range from $5.90 to $7.90.
Rounding out the list is another understated item. Remember the mug that Chris Pine holds as Captain Kirk in Star Trek: Beyond? Well, now you can have it, too! PropCultureCo over on Etsy has the mug available for $20.
No matter what your geeky friends and family are into, we hope that this list and our other gift guides helps you find that perfect something. From all of us here at Geek Girl Authority, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
