Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Christmas String Lights

Day 2 of December and I have already got most my presents that I am going to give out, and even started to think about putting up the Christmas tree! But first I need to have a think about that I will be hanging on the tree and in the small garden display, I like to put up. So to get some ideas and slip into the Christmas mood we need to start with the bare Christmas essentials…

I know flip-flops are not really that nerdy, but they are just too cool not to share with you. There is an almost summer sort of theme to these but would look goo around any tree.

Then it comes to a nice sci-fi night in, M&M’s are my choice of snacks. So these lights would look rather nice around my Christmas tree, or just used as general decoration.

The 2nd of the Star Wars sets is one of my favourite characters. R2-D2 never fails to make me laugh and it does have to be said that these are rather detailed indeed.

All together now…”We all live in a..” novelty set of Christmas lights inspired by the Beatles! OK, it is not as good as the original song, but still well worth hanging around the Crimbo tree!

Us nerds and pizza go hand in hand, so why not express our love of the food by hanging some nice string light slices around the tree! Fair play, these really do look amazing.

For the last one of the Star Wars-inspired light sets, we turn to these Darth Vader inspired ones. What I really liked about these is that Darth’s head kind of looks like a Festive Bell!

  1. this is a great post Russell, a little off season, but I loved it all the same.

  2. I’m not very well versed in the Sci-Fi genre. I am familiar with Dr. Who….mostly from the 1970’s but nothing later than that. Of course I know about Star Wars. I have to add my vote for the Fairy Berry lights. Makes me feel like a little girl again with hopes of seeing Tinkerbell 😀

  3. You really have to check out ThinkGeek.com… I’ve bought way too much stuff from those guys! They have an amazing Star Trek transporter room shower curtains/bath mat set that has nothing whatsoever with the theme of your post, but they also have the Yoda lights and piles of Dr. Who stuff.

  4. Blimey – you and Kate are well organised!! I’m pinning this so my Whovian daughters can have an ooh and aaah moment! Personally – being not particularly Whovian or geeky – just old and boring really – like the fairy berries best 🙂
