iron-manIf you like to stay snuggly warm and you love pop culture, check out the Northwest!  Known for all their sports accessories like bedding, backpacks and just about anything else you can can put a logo on, the Northwest also has a great selection of gear adorned with popular characters ranging from Disney, Star Wars and even Harry Potter.  Seriously, if you are a fan of something, check out their site, they are bound to have it.  Which makes it an AWESOME choice for one-stop shopping.  I can pick up items for my college basketball fan as well as my Iron Man fanatic.  I know that one loves his oversized Iron Man suit fleece throw.

For the Harry Potter fan in me, I love this woven tapestry Marauder’s Map throw for watching the movies and keeping warm and toasty, especially in cold winter months.  It is so comfortable and quite large and makes a great gift!

We loved Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and know there will be tons out there who do as well!  For those fanatics, we’ve got an awesome gift for you!  Check out Vandergelder Wands.  This Harry Potter die-hard fan knows what we like and knows how to make us happy.  We love the Newt Scamander replica wand.  It’s just what we wanted!  She also creates tons of other wands, so you can collect them all.  Each wand is handcrafted with painstaking details.  The details are not lost on us!  Absolutely beautiful work from the very talented and lovely store owner, Nancy.  When the wands arrive, every little detail is perfect.  So happy with these products and know you will be, too!  Want to order one?  Email Nancy at nlingmann@gmail.com.

We adore LootCrate!  And if Pop Culture is what you are looking for, this is the place to get it.  We get so excited to receive a package every month, too.  As every month has a new theme, it’s exciting to be surprised by what it is.  This month, Loot Crate is offering a magical themed box and we are more than thrilled to get it!  Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, Dr. Strange….it’s so awesome!  In addition to monthly subscriptions, you can opt to receive special crates.  I love this Wizarding World crate that comes out every two months.  Seriously a box that arrives with all things to do with J.K. Rowling’s world…..LOVE!!!  Trust me when I tell you that LootCrate boxes are the best!

If you like candles, check out this Etsy shop Magical Scentsations.  They have great smelling handmade candles scented to reflect one of your favorite movies/stories.  For example, this Wizarding Pub candle perfectly reflects the world of Harry Potter and is reminiscent of Butter Beer (yum!).  Seriously love this candle made of butterscotch and vanilla, with a hint of roasted oat stout.  I’ll be honest, I had no idea what that was, but it adds something truly special.  Because there are no artificial dyes, each candle is a beautiful milky color.  I highly recommend this shop for selecting a candle (or many) to represent your favorite movie, characters, and stories.

 

 

cross-pensIf you want to give a nicer gift for someone who is a die hard comic fan, I’ve found a professional way to do it.  Gift them a gorgeous Cross Marvel  Tech2 pen gift set! This set includes a Captain America, Spider-Man, and Iron Man pen, each in their own case. The writing is incredibly smooth and you can easily switch sides of the pen to use as a stylus. Each pen has a metallic finish with a very classy looking emblem on them.  Definitely a home run in the gift giving department.

For comic fans, Converse has the perfect gift for you this holiday season. Check out the collaboration between Converse and Warner Bros DC Comics– Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 DC Comics Batman Collection.  Love them!  Seriously cool, they give you the style and comfort you have come to know and love, with the added fun of your favorite super hero (Batman!).  Makes for a super fun, super hip gift that will get a lot of wear.

Five Nights at Freddy’s is all the rage and Sanshee makes some super fun accessories in that theme.  We love  this Foxy  plushie for FNAF fans everywhere this holiday season.  Super soft and a great addition to any collection to sit and watch you on a shelf. Great gifts or stocking stuffers, for sure!

 

 

 

 

 

funedibles_ghostbusters_staypuft_16_figure2_webIt’s no secret that 80s movies have made some big returns this year.  We loved the new Ghostbusters, which was a fun and creative spin on one of our favorite movies.  USAopoly has created some fun collectibles for those original Ghostbusters fans and turned some familiar faces into some funny mashups with food.  Pizza Venkman, Stay Puft, and Slimer Lime Jello are the latest FunEdibles to hit the shelves and we love them!

We also love this hip retro tee, depicting the mini games within Five Nights at Freddy’s.  A fun way to show your interest in this pop culture phenomenon, wear it on your sleeves.  We love it’s 100% cotton and a great conversation piece!

squatty-potty

So, something that made our list is one of the most hysterical infomercials I have ever seen.  Not one to normally watch informercials, my kids talked me into watching this quite some time ago and since then, we have laughed about it a lot and it’s something they have definitely wanted to try.  Check out this video for the Squatty Potty.

So, give the gift of a healthy colon, a good laugh, and a surprisingly useful item this holiday season!  You can even purchase some hysterical accessories like t-shirts, Dookie the stuffed unicorn, and the latest product, Unicorn Gold, to eliminate  and prevent any nasty odors.
