Today is my hubby’s birthday! I always have a long list of things I wish I could get him. Mostly geeky things that are expensive or things that he doesn’t really need, but are fun to think about. Here are a few of the things I wish I could get him.
It’s the thought that counts, right?
Of course, most of these come from our favorite place to window-shop… Think Geek!
Although we haven’t played World of Warcraft in years, I still think he’d love this robe.
Get yourself this Tier-2 Rogue Bloodfang Armor robe IRL without having to slog through another 40-man raid to transmog your gear.

Of course, he needs something special to drink from while we watch Game of Thrones!
You don’t have to know the story behind this Game of Thrones goblet to be impressed by it. With a resin stem shaped like a dragon’s claws and a glass bowl, this chalice is perfect for hosting parties or for a quiet dinner alone pondering the fate

A zombie bowl for eating brains and bowels!
Zombies have been eating things out of our heads for years. Time to turn the tables. Finally, a bowl that looks like a zombie head we can eat out of!

He has several pairs of BBQ tongs, so he doesn’t really need these, but… but… lightsaber!
Wield your own Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs. Modelled on Darth Vader’s lightsaber, these almost 2 ft. long tongs have a heat-resistant plastic handle. A button on the side provides classic sound effects you’ll flip (burgers) for.

He doesn’t need another backpack, but he DOES need a Backpack of Holding! Right?
The first thing you’ll notice is that the Backpack of Holding is an inch or two bigger all directions than your typical JanSport-style backpack. The top flap is part of the bag, which means you can unfold it to get another half a foot of height out of it.

Tangle-resistant, chainsaw-proof charging cable? I think we both need these!
A Titan cable is distinctive and attractive. The steel wrapping makes the cord durable, tangle-resistant, and totally unique. How durable? They took a chainsaw to it. It stopped the chainsaw.

Maybe this would be better for his drink during Game of Thrones. He could look at the map while watching.
This hefty stein is ready to hold all your favorite beverages. At the same time, it will proudly proclaim you are a lover of Westeros. Or, at least, that you know what Westeros is!

Or he could have both the dragon claw and the map with a blanket map!
With one side of this blanket you can plan your invasion; the other side is plain black for when you want to look innocent or have your decor look slightly less geeky.

He’s always wanted a flux capacitor.
Owning this watch is your density.

For in front of his desk?
It was your faithful companion, but it could not accompany you for the rest of the test. They told you it would rather die in a fire than become a burden. Like the cake, it was a lie. Do the right thing and adopt another.

I keep the house pretty cold in the winter to save on heating bills. We have warm clothes, hoodies and blankets to keep us warm, but with this blanket robe, he’d be toasty!
This Jedi Sleeved Blanket allows you to choose to curl up on the couch or stage a lightsaber duel in your living room (it has two pockets for convenient hilt storage).

Because his desk needs protecting? No… just because.
Strike fear into the hearts of your enemies (or coworkers) with your very own turret. When it detects movement, the wings open and it will announce the acquisition of a target, which is enough to send anyone running away from your desk at top speed.

Yep, my hubby is a browncoat…
You know what we think? You need this coat. You know how we know? Because you are So Very Pretty. You are just too pretty to go without this coat for one more day.

Why did I post this? Well, we tend to buy each other more practical things and we don’t buy things we already have just because it’s themed, but it’s fun to look. I tend to have wishlists of things that I want to buy other people, the people that are easy to buy for anyway, and thought it might be fun to share one.
