3 Sites for Christmas Shopping

Christmas is just around the corner and the shopping frenzy has begun. I try not to go do a lot of spending for Christmas, and if I do, I try to get gifts that are unique and meaningful. Here are some sites that I shop around for ideas!



One of my favourite online stores! I’ve bought a number of outfits from them and I find their site easy to use. Since it’s only online, the next thing that I look for is returns and customer service. If you purchase an article and something is wrong with it, they do a really good job of making the return process as painless as possible.

Not only do they have cute clothes, they have adorable extras that can add a unique twist to your gift giving.

Uncommon Goods


I’m not entirely sure how I happened across this site, but I’m so glad I did! There are some unique gift ideas there and even if I’m not buying I love browsing to see what new things they’ve added, I mean, USB cufflinks and a metal band made out of … metal? What’s not to like?



Fresh out of college I found this site and I went a little crazy, buying random shirts and gadgets. It’s easy to loose track of time browsing through all the nerdy items for sale on this site and I absolutely love it! There are a lot of pop culture things on it as well so there’s a little something for everyone.

That’s all for now, maybe later this week I’ll do three sites that will make you feel good about helping other people. We’ll see. What are some of your faves?

Window Shopping on Think Geek

One of my favourite geeky stores is Think Geek. They carry a lot of cute things… this post highlights some of my favourites.

I have mono! I need bookworm and the common cold to complete my cute little microbes collection.

I have the Sonic Screwdriver pen (which has two inks! Just like the Doctor has two hearts). I’m also loving the journal and mini screwdriver pen and the Keep Clam products – especially the “Dont Blink” one. Weeping Angels episodes anyone?

They also have Harry Potter things, like this Tom Riddle diary with wand pen. I’ve also got my eyes on the Gryffindor long sleeve t-shirt (even though I got sorted into Ravenclaw).

They also have some very cool jewelry. Steampunk, vintage, some really fun stuff.

Think Geek is the place I love to geek out in. I’m sure if they had a physical store I’d probably be there just as much as I’d be in the bookstores. =)
