As we've mentioned before, there are plenty of gift options for a movie lover who has a particular affinity for a big franchise. There is no shortage of merchandise related to a series like Star Trek, but sometimes there are so many items to choose from, it's hard to narrow it down. We've done the hunting to find the very best gifts for the
Trekkie Trekker on your list.
For the Kitchen Cabinet
When the topic of gifts for Trekkers came up here at Reelz, the Enterprise Pizza Cutter
sold by Think Geek was unanimously coveted. It’s one of those things that every Star Trek
fan wants, but it’s silly enough few of us want to buy it for ourselves, which makes it the perfect option for a gift. An even better bet would be the Star Trek party pack
, which includes the cool pizza cutter in addition to an awesome Klingon corkscrew and an amazing Enterprise bottle opener.
For Lounging Around
Another excellent Star Trek
gift that nearly every Trekker we know wants is a bath robe
in Starfleet-command-uniform gold. There's also a shorter robe available, but it only comes in an Uhura-inspired red. That seems silly to us, because we definitely think Captain Kirk would have preferred the shorter option. He’d want to show off those legs, right?
For the Stocking
For a smaller, stocking-stuffer-type gift we love this Starfleet Academy notebook
. Even though the phoenix logo is prominent on the cover, it's not obvious that it's a Star Trek
reference to those who aren't in the know. Another item that's good for something small is this gift card we found on Etsy
that reads "Dear Twilight fans, Thank you for making us look sane and well-adjusted.
Trekkies." While it's a little pricey at six bucks a card, it'll be sure to bring priceless delight to a snarky, Twi-hating Trekker.
For the Lady Trekker Who Loves TNG
Not every Star Trek
fan is a nerdy guy. There are some hot, cool chicks — Mila Kunis, for example
— who can hold their own in a Kirk vs. Piccard conversation, and there are excellent girly gifts inspired by Star Trek
for them as well. The ladylike pro-Piccard fan can wear her feelings on her arm with this lovely aluminum Make It So bracelet
without feeling mannish at all.
The holiday season is upon us, and Ten Forward is all decked out in festive decor, so don't wait around to start ordering these gifts.
