Some of you (especially those who do not follow our Twitter or Facebook) may be mystified by the lack of updates and general radio silence, when this blog generally doesn’t shut up. However, since we are in the process of going self-hosted and readying a special birthday surprise (that was meant to happen on our first blog birthday, but who’s counting?) we have been a little… tied up. Unfortunately, we’re not quite sure when the self-hosted stuff will be wrapped up, and it’s been taking some time. I’m not even going to blame Mercury retrograde for it, we just have a special talent for setting the internet on fire. Well… while we’re getting everything nice and ready so we can all celebrate our birthday properly (and trust me, you are all going to like it very much) I thought I’d make a nice little post for you guys. This post serves two purposes – one, to reassure everyone that we are not yet dead, and two, to compile all our geeky and nerdy and awesome holiday posts from last year in one helpful place. We’ve noticed an increase of views in our last year’s gift guides and whatnot, and while we will be making new ones for this year, the last year’s might come in quite helpful too. So umm… enjoy?
Ahh, can you smell the pumpkin spice lattes in the air? Can you hear the crunch of the fallen leaves beneath the feet of the weeping angels which surround you as you blink at an inopportune moment? Can you see those spooky… wait no, no, what are we talking about? I don’t remember seeing anything, do you? Where did these tally marks come from? …Anyway, it’s autumn, and we here at 3 Chic Geeks are absolutely psyched for autumn. I’m sure, dear readers, that you agree with us – what with the pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween, Supernatural on TV, orange things, plaid flannel, cozy layers, hot tea, NYCC, warm jumpers and caramel apple Milky Ways – autumn is clearly the superior season. Of course, along with all those other wonderful things, autumn brings a veritable oncoming storm of fall fashion options. We here at 3 Chic Geeks are always pondering the contents of our closets, and today seemed like a good day to spill the contents of our wardrobes on the floor and play in our stockpiled attire until we end up with Doctor Who inspired outfits. So, um, yeah. Here you go.
Are you one of those lucky people who has a geek dad? Do you need to find an appropriately geeky father’s day present for aforementioned dad? Well, you are in luck, because we here at 3 Chic Geeks will jump on positively any chance to do a gift guide, because that’s basically a long round of online window-shopping that we can write off as “work” and “serious business”. Armed with this guide and express shipping, you will most definitely not disappoint your father (probably). Also, later on in the post we’ll have the giveaway results announced!
Are you in love with this site? Do you, perchance, wish to marry us (all three of us) because we are so awesome? Well, sadly, while our hands in marriage are not currently available, we have an even better way for you to express your love of us. The official 3 Chic Geeks tee is now available on Redbubble. We are currently working on creating stickers and phone cases as well.
I’m not sure why we have these things, to be quite honest. Perhaps, in an alternate universe, there’s a 3 Chic Geeks TV show and the network needed to write in a way to push merchandise onto the viewers in unorthodox manners? *cough*PSYCH*cough*
In any case, you should totally get a 3 Chic Geeks shirt. It’s guaranteed to make you 200% cooler.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people who read this blog are probably shopping for holiday presents for their families at this very moment. Now, some of you probably have friends who are huge Jane Austen geeks – we here at 3 Chic Geeks certainly are! Jane Austen was the mother of the modern romance novel, and created strong, intelligent heroines that we love to read about time and time again. Not to mention, she was born on December 16th. All in all, we have gathered some of our favorite Jane Austen-themed objects in this handy gift guide. It’s perfect for last-minute holiday shopping AND for drooling over things you desire (with us, it is a little bit of both).
And, it’s that time of the year again. Holiday lights are going up everywhere, the stores are readying their Christmas sales, and Thanksgiving, instead of being a holiday in its own right, was simply the pregame to Black Friday’s shopping sprees. That’s right, folks – it’s the end of November and people are preparing for the holidays. Here at 3 Chic Geeks, we decided to make holiday shopping easier for all of you this year and put together handy-dandy shopping guides. Now, you don’t have to worry about what to get your favorite Sherlockian – even if you don’t know Moriarty from Mycroft. Just take this list with you, and you’ll be good to go – we’ve
drunkenly chosen carefully selected everything a BBC Sherlock fan would want, with gift ideas for any price range included. Read on to see our picks for this holiday season!
