Welcome to another contribution to the wildly popular Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week they ask us to share lists on the following:
November 29: Holiday Gift Guide freebie (ten books to buy the YA lover in your life, 10 books to buy for your dad, etc.)
My husband, I do not exchange gifts with each other or anyone else, so I have for several years now not had to actually shop for anything this time of year. So sometimes it is fun to think about what I might get a such and such person or ask for myself. I’ve decided to play this list a little selfishly and head over to Barnes and Noble to see what I might find for a Trekkie on their site. I am not going to limit myself to simply books, the list will be book heavy, though, but just go through the 2900+ items they have to offer when you search for Star Trek and see what I might enjoy receiving as a gift or give to a fellow fan of the franchise. So, shall we begin?
books gifts that I might buy a Trekkie over at B&N
- Movie Star Trek Beyond $14.99: Let’s start with the movie that came out this year. It’s now out on DVD and Blue Ray. I already own this little gem so this is one I might buy for a fellow Trekkie.
- 2017 Star Trek Poster Wall Calendar $13.67: I have turned my upstairs hallway into a display center for all my Trek paraphernalia and this wall calendar would fit in nicely. After the year is up I would so have all the prints framed for my wall too.
- Star Trek: TOS Adult Coloring Book $14.99: I must confess that I’m not really on board with this coloring trend. I’m sorry but you end up spending half the time sharpening your pencil with all those tiny little spaces to fill in… This would totally be the exception to the rule, though, this TOS coloring book would be so cool to have. They also offer The next generation coloring book if you like that series better. I would happily accept or give either.
- Trekonomics: The Economics of Star Trek $13.17: One of the things that had always fascinated and drawn me to Trek is the Utopian society where everyone works for the betterment of themselves and society. All needs are met and there is no financial inequality. Trek has shown me a better way and this book would be a fascinating read.
- The Fifty-Year Mission $19.97: What Trekkie wouldn’t love to learn all the ins and outs of their favorite franchise. I know I would love this and the second book delving into the second 25 years of Trek.
- The Klingon Dictionary$12.70: Okay, now I don’t think I would ever go so far as to learn to speak Klingon but wouldn’t it be a hoot to look up and learn all the swear words to use in everyday conversation.
- Spock Bobble Head $14.95: Yes, please. I want a Spock Bobble Head for my very own. Or you could get any one of the other favorite characters for the Trekkie in your life.
- $16.44: This one is on my to-read shelf. If you haven’t guessed, Spock is my favorite character, and it would be touching to read about Leonard Nimoy from the insight only Shatner could provide. LLAP.
- $11.76: Now this isn’t a Star Trek item but it is a fabulous parody of the Trek franchise and any Trekkie is bound to love this story. I did and had to go out to make it my very own. Great read!
- $22.50: Why not a collector addition of TOS episodes in story format. This would hold an honored place on the shelf of any Trekkie.
Well, there you have my suggestion list of gift items for the Trekkie in your life. I’m sure there are plenty more out there an Enterprise coffee cup or model, a complete set of their favorite show, all the movies, etc. This is simply some fun items I found over at Barnes & Noble. The prices might not be current as I made this list on Cyber Monday and I think they had a sale going on. Live Long and Prosper and have a great holiday shopping season everyone!
