The holidays are upon us. Now if you are the Doctor, and you have a Tardis, you can take all the time you need to do your shopping. Most of us are slaves to the ever moving clock. So as the clock inches towards the holiday season we’ve compiled the Fangirlish Geeky Gift Guide.
We’ve curated geeky gifts from popular fandoms and will be releasing these lists over the next few weeks. All of the items featured here are created by independent artists and small businesses, where purchasing an item means so much more than a gift.
So shop small this holiday, make the Doctor proud, and take a look at these geeky gifts that will be perfect for any fan on your list.
Oh how easy life would be if we could all walk around with a Tardis, but since Earth doesn’t have a tardis farm, give the Whovian in your life a tote bag that is so roomy it seems bigger on the inside.
This artful tote features a signature phrase from the series in Tardis blue and a complimentary cream color. It’s perfect for showing off your favorite fandom without sacrificing style.
We’ve all seen the way the Doctor flys the Tardis. As River Song pointed out, he doesn’t engage the stablizers, so god help you if you are trying to read during one of his landings. That’s where magnetic bookmarks come in handy.
These magnetic bookmarks feature the Tardis, and incarnations 10 and 11 of the Doctor. You can buy them individually or as a whole set seen here.
PRICE: $18/Set of 5
Everyone has their own favorite version of the Doctor. If the Whovian in your life loves the Eleventh Doctor then this charm bracelet is perfect for them.
Featuring the Eleventh Doctor’s catchphrase, the eternal Tardis, and his bow tie, this bracelet is sure to delight any Eleven fan on your list.
It’s also available in kid and adult sizes so you can find the size that fits your giftee’s wrist perfectly.
Did the geek in your life recently get an apartment or suddenly find that all of their clocks were broken? (Be careful, and remember “The Girl in the Fireplace.”) Then a woodcut Tardis clock is the perfect gift for them.
Made from a laser cut piece of birch that has been painted the series signature blue, this piece will not only be semi-iconic but also artsy in your giftee’s space.
The perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite Whovian is a hand-stamped keychain. One of the best things about Doctor Who is the fact that it’s all about adventure and this is just one of the quotes that fits that sentiment so perfectly.
The doctor has always been fond of books, especially biographies. For the bibliophile and Whovian in your life, this set of throw pillows is the perfect gift.

It’s nice to have a little touch of fandom in your home. That’s why we love this spoon rest that depicts a Dalek and a Tardis, it’s understated and yet for the Whovian fan on your list, it will be a happy reminder of their favorite fandom while they are pursuing their passion of cooking
9. Adipose Bow
The adipose were perhaps one of the more adorable “villians” that we’ve ever seen on Doctor Who. These balls of human fat would literally walk away. It seems appropriate that this cute bow depicting these little guys make it onto our holiday list.
Some people love River Song, some people don’t, but regardless of your feelings for her, let’s agree on one thing: her diary rocks!
This necklace has a locket version of the diary where River Song records her encounters with the Doctor. Add a photo and you can be sure that your loved ones will always be close to your heart, whether you are time traveling or not.
For the Whovian in your life who also knits, show them you support both their passions with this ceramic yarn bowl. Not only is this yarn bowl geeky, but it will also keep the yarn from rolling off of their lap and onto the floor. It’s a real struggle. Just ask the knitter in your life.
