Five Great Gift To Give Neat to Geek

Good Morning,

Tuesday is here and so too five unique and interesting gift ideas from some of my favorite shops on etsy.

From: Felix Greens

Sunglasses - Adventure Time - Handpainted Custom Wayfarers

Hand painted custom Wayfarer Sunglasses.

Hand painted with acrylic, and finished with satin acrylic varnish, there's no need to worry about the rain. They can be wiped clean with a clean damp cloth too.

Have any questions? Contact the shop owner


From: We Love Poppets

Grim Reader Poppet by Lisa Snellings

Poppet visits October. After all, October is a state of mind.

There she finds Grim Reading.

Grim comes with a tiny hand made scythe. Grim is about as October as a Poppet can be.

Grim Reading is cold cast marble, is about 2 inches tall and hand painted and signed by the artist.

Even scary Poppets are made with love. 


From: Epoch Creations

Nautical Tentacle Porthole Lamp

This unique nautical wall lamp is handmade and painted to order. Lifelike and life-sized, it will light up your room as well as spark a conversation.

The porthole latch serves as a light switch and the vintage 40 watt Edison bulb is included with the piece.

The standard light socket will work with any general purpose light bulb; however, a 40 watt bulb is recommended.

Each item is hand crafted and made to order. Please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery.

Lamp is approx. 18inH with bulb.


From: Squid Pro Quo Shop

Huge Giant Squid Plush/Body Pillow

**As seen on The Rachel Maddow Show!**

This enormous cutie is made just for you to adore, he is so soft and huggable you could even use him as a body pillow! He is the perfect addition to any nautical-themed playroom or nursery. You don't even have to be a kid to want to cuddle up to one of these, even adults find him irresistible to touch and play with! And, at 7 feet long, from the top of his fins to the tip of his two long arms, boy what a conversation piece he is!

This big buy can be made in just about any color combination. Just select your color preference before checkout! If there is a color combo you don't see simply select "custom color" and put it in the notes and I will be happy to accommodate you. Also, I always use a sucker side fabric with some sort of dot or circle pattern so the underside of the tentacles looks like suckers.

Your giant squid plush can be made with plain eyes, cute anime eyes as shown in the last photo of the pink squid, or with one giant eye in the front like the red squid in the fourth photo. At this time Etsy only allows for 2 drop down variations, so please list your eye style preference in the "Notes to Seller" area at checkout, thanks! If you do not list a preference I will give your squid the plain eye style.

Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for the making of your amazing giant squid plush as he is quite large and takes some time to complete. As always, my creations come from a smoke and pet odor free home.

Do not be alarmed at the seemingly small size of the shipping box! The bulk of these guys is mostly stuffing, so I curl them up into a 12"x12"x12" box to save you money on shipping!
