After gaming, dusting off collectibles, and online shopping for geeky items, all a geek wants to do is chill. Only, often times that means boring clothes, plain blankets, and Netflix or Hulu. While there’s nothing wrong with that, it makes us wonder – “where’s the pizzazz?”
That’s why we’ve collected geeky versions of everything you need for a chill night indoors. Leave it up to us to up your swag game to 100%.
These Japanese Kigurumi Cosplay Pajamas are cozy, comfy, and warm enough you probably won’t even need a blanket. Choose from 10 different styles, including but not limited to Tabby Cat, Fox, Dinosaur, Owl, Panda, and more. One size fits all, but for those of you over 6 feet tall, the cuffs may be a tad bit short – maybe. Easy to care for, let your washing machine do all the work, and then use Air Fluff on your dryer, or hang it out to dry. This item is available for $35.99 from ThinkGeek.
The Exclusive Star Wars Jedi Robe Sleeved Blanket is just what you think it is, a Jedi robe as, basically, a Snuggie, only better. This is both a blanket, and a robe, in one, and it’s awesome. It measures 62″ wide x 68″ tall, and comes with a hood and two pockets in the front. This officially-licensed Lucasfilm merchandise features a 3 1/2″ diameter patch for the symbol of the Jedi Order on the chest, and is guaranteed to make a chill night pretty badass. It’s available for $24.99 from ThinkGeek.
These Star Trek TOS Pillows are perfect to hug, rest your head on, or use as a leg rest. They’re officially-licensed Star Trek: The Original Series merchandise, and come in Science Blue, Command Gold, or Operations / Security Red. They feature an embroidered division emblem and a hidden zipper on the bottom that allows you to remove the sham to clean it. Speaking of clean, just shove these puppies in the washing machine on cold, and lay flat to dry! They’re available for $11.99 – $23.99 from ThinkGeek.
There’s nothing better while you’re relaxing than a nice, hot cup of tea. That’s where this Space Capsule Tea Infuser comes in. This little capsule holds loose-leaf tea for brewing, and looks cool while doing it! Unscrew the ablative heat shield to open it, and fill it up with your favorite tea, from Earl Grey, to Black Tea, and everything in-between. The tiny astronaut counterweight adds a cute touch. This item is available for $9.99 from ThinkGeek.
This Exclusive Building Brick Socks 2 Pack is perfect for a casual night at home. They feature bright “building blocks” (we know what they are) over a black background, making the colors pop even more. Each sock features red, yellow, and blue bricks (4, 6, and 8 studs). One size fits most, but for some reason they’re not for kids under 12, because they may be too big. Two pairs per 2 Pack: One has yellow heel, toe, and top; the other has blue heel, toe, and top. Get these for $9.99 from ThinkGeek!
If you’re a gaming nerd (hopefully you are), then you’ll love this Legend of Zelda Ankle Socks 5-Pack. Five pairs – one for each weekday, these socks will ensure you’re geeky and comfy every single day, or night! During weekdays, that is. They fit ladies’ shoe sizes 5-10 / big kid 3-5 / men’s 6-8. Easy to care for, just machine wash on cold, and tumble dry on low. They’re officially-licensed Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword merchandise. Get them for $24.99 from ThinkGeek!
These Star Trek Tribble Slippers with Sound are quirky and fun! They make happy tribble noises when you walk, and come with the 3 LR44 batteries for each slipper that you need. You will need to flip the switch to “on” to hear the sounds, which means if it ever gets annoying, just switch them off. One size fits most, but if your feet resemble Sasquatch’s, remember the footbed is 11″ long. That means the max is Men’s size 11/Women’s 12. These are available for $14.99 from ThinkGeek.
If you’re bored of playing Magic, watching Hulu or Netflix, and already took a nap, reach for this Ice Speed Chess Set, but remember, be fast! This Silicone Ice mold creates frozen chess pieces, perfect for playing in the arctic, or on cold fall and winter nights. Fill them up with water, or juice, so you have two different colored sets (perfect for chess). The set comes with two molds, for this specific purpose, but no chess board, so you’ll have to supply your own. Womp, womp, woooommmpppp. Oh well, it’s still cool! And now, even if you’re just reaching for more iced tea, you’ll have awesome ice cubes to drop into it. This item is available for $12.99 from ThinkGeek.
Now, at some point during your chill night, you’re going to find a way out of the nest on your couch, walk to the kitchen, and open the fridge…only to close it again. Despite going grocery shopping, there never seems to be anything good in there. Instead, you and your roommate, partner, friend, or pet can go ahead and make cookies! But not just any cookies, with these Minecraft Cookie Cutters. This set of 5 Minecraft cookie cutters are officially-licensed Minecraft gear, designed by ThinkGeek. You’ll get a pickaxe, sword, player, cookie, and a Creeper, so you’ll have an awesome time making these! The storage tin looks like an in-game chest, and features a foam insert so the cutters don’t rattle around. Available for $19.99 from ThinkGeek.
Last but not least is this Exclusive Assassin’s Creed Logo Blanket. This soft fleece blanket bears the insignia of the Assassin, and is officially-licensed. Being 100% polyester, it’s easy to care for, just machine was cold and lay it out to dry. It measures 46″ x 62″, perfect for warm relaxation time. Get it now for $24.99 from ThinkGeek!
