Your Sci-Fi & Scary Holiday Gift Guide 2020

If you’re anything like us, you tend to wait until the last minute to do your shopping, even if it’s online and only takes a couple of clicks. Now, while there’s no guarantee that these gifts will get to your intended recipients *by* Christmas, it’s 2020, y’all. Just shrug and say “Sorry, COVID made shipping horrible.” You have the excuse, might as well use it, right?

So, if you’re looking for something for yourself (those gift cards you’re going to get have to be spent on something, right?) or someone else (my daughter only watches horror movies – I have no clue what to get her!!), please browse our selection of all sorts of goodies that are (mostly) sourced from small business owners.

In this, our year of Covid 2020, anything goes. Even stabby knife necklaces, you know?

We cover a lot of horror here but the biggest horrorshow this year has certainly been 2020 itself. If you’re as sick of this year as we are and want the perfect ornament for the tree to encapsulate the whole gestalt of this year then adorn your pine with this gorgeous ornament.

This may be stretching it but Pac-Man has ghosts. So if you squint real hard and take a few steps to the right it’s almost close to the horror genre. Did you also know Timex has this awesome Pac-Man watch? ‘Cause they do.

This Timex Pac Man watch is super nerdy and very cool. Available in silver, gold or black tones.

We’ve all lost someone, and whether it was to the pandemic, old age, or anything in between, it’s okay to acknowledge that loss, to mourn it. If you’re looking for a print, journal, etc, that is gorgeous and old-timey for that certain someone in your life, you might consider this:
