Gift Ideas for Female Science Fiction Fans

TTTBannerThe time in which we must buy presents for family and friends is nearly upon us. And everyone is starting look for suggestions. Thankfully, Broke and Bookish gives me an excuse to talk about gift ideas for female science fiction fans by making the topic of this Top Ten Tuesday a “Holiday Gifts” freebie. This list will include both a book and a soft or shiny item to gift with it. (Pictures of the soft and shinies go either to Amazon or to ThinkGeek.)

Side Note: An alternate title for this list is What My Family Needs to Get Me For Christmas!

Gift Ideas for Female Science Fiction Fans

If she likes Firefly: Try Becky Chambers’ The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet and this Firefly plushie.

If she likes Doctor Who: Get her Just One Damned Thing After Another (St Mary’s #1) by Jodi Taylor, but don’t forget this awesome Don’t Blink tee either.


If she’s into classics, go ultra-classic: Jule’s Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and this cool Old Book Messenger Bag.


If you’ve heard her talk about the need for diversity: Let her have Corinne Duyvis’ On the Edge of Gone and this cool tea infuser.

Is Star Wars her thing? Then try another space opera in the form of Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey, but don’t forget a cool little BB-8 mug she can drink from at the same time.

If she’s a fan of the superhero movies out lately, then she needs: Ex-Heroes by Peter Clines, and this awesome Deadpool backpack. (Because trust me, backpacks aren’t just useful for school!)

Did she rave over The Martian last year? Then she might like another hard sci-fi book called Tao Zero by Poul Anderson. It has that same sense of battling against the inevitable, and yet never giving up. (And a kind of happy ending, too.) Oh, and this geeky caffeine necklace too.


Maybe she’s more about Star Trek than Star Wars? Give her Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and a fluffily Star Trek robe to read it in.



What would you buy the sci-fi fans in your life?

    OMG, I never knew that BB-8 mug existed, but I really, REALLY want it right now! It’s just too good. I have Leviathan awakens on my TBR for a while now, definitely bumping it up the list if it’s similar to Star Wars!

  2. Lynn says:

    Haha – I absolutely want the robe! What a great list. I actually want the mug, and the tea infuser – I”m not being greedy of course (they go together well – a mug to infuse your tea in).
    Lynn 😀
