For our third guide to Christmas presents, we turn to the cool nerds, the happy geeks, the pop culture fans and clever clogs out there. The Hannah Zakari Shoppe has just the thing for the space cadets, gamers and niche tv fans in your life.
The wonderful Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes are a great place to start when you’re on the prowl for a present with a geeky angle. We love the Sword of Omens pin badge (sight beyond sight depending on the wearer), the cute Zelda inspired Heart Container pin, and the amazing little Virtual Pet pin (all the charm of a Tamagotchi, without the upkeep!).
If you know someone with a bit of a space obsession (who doesn’t?), we’re a few different things in the Hannah Zakari Shoppe to stick in their Christmas stocking.
Mokuyobi Threads have a stellar range of pins and patches in the Shoppe, including the brilliant Space Mission iron-on patch. It’s amazing on a coat, bag, shirt or jumper, and strikes the perfect balance between retro and cool.
If your favourite space-fan is into jewellery too, get them an out of this world piece from Eclectic Eccentricity, designed by Lucy – who gave up a career in astrophysics to pursue jewellery making!
The I Just Need Some Space, Man necklace is perfectly subtle, as a cool little ceramic spaceman hangs from a brass chain.
Another gem from Eclectic Eccentricity is this outstanding Perfect Alignment Solar System necklace. The necklace features a set of vintage cabochons dating from the 1940s through to the 1980s, which were selected by Lucy for their similarities to the planets in our solar system.
Designer Kate Rowland makes a great range of brooches and earrings with a cult TV theme, and we particularly love the Game of Thrones inspired Winter is Coming brooch – ’tis the season…
Finally, fans of kawaii will love this little Kawaii Food Meal Planner by Asking For Trouble – it’s just the thing for New Year’s Resolutions as well!
