10 Coolest Video Game Ugly Christmas Sweaters

Posted: 17 Nov 2016 12:05 PM PST


Whether you’re ready or not, the holiday season is fast approaching.

Chances are, if you’ve been to the store lately, you’ve already seen all the Christmas decorations and gifts on display. I really wish Thanksgiving wasn’t so overlooked, I mean, food is great, but since making a list of Thanksgiving sweaters might be a little too difficult, I’m going to go ahead and give you a list of the coolest Christmas sweaters around.

Not just your typical ugly sweaters with jingle bells and cotton balls, but sweaters that will show off your love of Christmas and your love of video games. Even though Thanksgiving food is great, no one can deny that Christmas and video games combined might just be the best thing ever.

Legend of Zelda Link Ugly Christmas Sweater

This Legend of Zelda sweater, featuring Link, is truly a holiday treat. You may not get the Triforce for Christmas, but this could be just as satisfying. Skip the evil Black Friday villains this year and order this sweater online in the comfort of your pajamas. (Or be like Link and go on an adventure to the mall. It’s up to you.)

Pokemon Pikachu Ugly Christmas Sweater

Pokemon Go is all the rage this year, and no doubt there will be lots of Pokemon gifts exchanged. Opt for this unique, yet adorable, Pikachu sweater. It’ll melt the heart of anyone who wears it. Pika-aww <3

Mario Ugly Christmas Hoodie Sweater

So maybe the classic, “ugly,” Christmas sweater isn’t your thing. No fear, this awesome Mario hoodie is here to make you look cool, geeky, and festive all at the same time! Jump for joy like the jumping man himself. Fun fact: Did you know Mario was originally named Jumpman, before he became the Italian plumber we all know and love?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ugly Christmas Sweater

Turtles in Time is one of the best SNES games created and if there’s one thing I love other than that game, it’s pizza. If there’s one thing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles love, it’s also pizza. If you’re a TMNT fan and a pizza fan, show off your love by wearing this sweater at your next holiday party. Maybe there will be pizza. Anyone hungry?

Jurassic World Ugly Christmas Sweater

I never beat the original Jurassic Park video game, but it’s part of a classic franchise of successful movies that spawned many games, sequels, and all kinds of merchandise. The latest entry, Jurassic World broke all sorts of records upon its release. Prepare for the inevitable sequels by picking up one of these fantastic sweaters! Look how cute that Santa hat is on the T-Rex!

Star Wars Dark Side Helmets Ugly Christmas Sweater

This is actually the first of two Star Wars sweaters I’ve decided to include. The graphic print, rather than the traditional knit look sets it apart from many other Christmas sweaters, and the bow tie element is just the cutest thing. You simply can’t go wrong with Star Wars; it’s perfect for almost any geek out there.

Skyrim Ugly Christmas Sweater

Are you the dragonborn? No matter, this sweater suits any Elder Scrolls or Bethesda fan. You’ll feel warm and cozy wearing this sweater while picking the pockets of townspeople and slaying dragons in the desolate, freezing land of Skyrim.

Fallout Ugly Christmas Sweater

With its simple, immediately recognizable design and logo, this Fallout ‘Happy Holidays’ is the sweater to wear if you’re the type who doesn’t like explaining what video game or movie your clothes came from. Fallout also has the advantage of being one of the most popular series right now, with Fallout 4 released just last year.

Star Wars Yoda Christmas Sweater

The second Star Wars sweater that I couldn’t resist including. “Silent Night, Jedi Night,” get it? “Silent night, holy night? Jedi knight?” Yeah, you probably got it. Anyway, look at that Santa Yoda. I’d love the jolly green jedi to bring me gifts. “A merry christmas, I wish you.”

Pac-Man Christmas Sweater

Colorful, festive, and very 80s esque, this retro blast from the past is great for the nostalgic video game fan. Or the hipster who refuses to play anything besides Atari and NES.

Hopefully, you found some great choices for the gamers in your life. Whether it’s for a holiday party, a Christmas gift, or just a sweater you want to wear yourself all winter long, I think these sweaters are all awesome choices. Have a happy holiday season and keep being a geek!

16 Terrific Star Wars Christmas Tree Ornaments

Posted: 17 Nov 2016 07:37 AM PST

Star Wars Death Star Christmas Tree Ornament

It’s never too soon to start planning how your Christmas tree is going to look like, so here are some Star Wars Christmas tree ornaments to convince you that this is the path you must go down.

Whether it’s a dark side or light side one, it doesn’t matter. Anything involving a Star Wars Christmas ornament is A OK in my book. But if you’re going with a Star Wars themed Christmas, go through our list so you’ll know the best ones to choose from:

Star Wars A New Hope Darth Vader & Princess Leia Christmas Tree Ornament

I love products that depict scenes from a film or book, in this case Darth Vader telling off his daughter (he doesn’t know it, I think), Princess Leia. This makes one cool Christmas tree ornament.

Star Wars the Force Awakens Old Han Solo Christmas Tree Ornament

An old Han Solo is still an awesome Han Solo. Either way, he’ll look awesome on your Star Wars-themed Christmas tree.

Star Wars Chewbacca Christmas Tree Ornament

Where there’s a Han Solo Christmas tree Ornament, a Chewbacca ornament won’t be too far behind.

Star Wars Rey Christmas Tree Ornament

Just as she should, Rey on a Christmas tree is one bad-a$$ ornament looking to pick a fight.

Star Wars Kylo Ren Christmas Tree Ornament

After putting Rey on your Christmas tree, hang the Kylo Ren ornament next to her in order to give it some force balance.

Star Wars Poe Dameron Christmas Tree Ornament

If you’re a huge fan of X-Wing pilots and specifically the dashing Poe Dameron, it makes sense to have this cutout of him on your Christmas tree.

Star Wars Chibi Darth Vader Christmas Tree Ornament

Because of Chibi Ornaments like this, featuring Darth Vader as cute, it’s difficult for some people to perceive him as menacing villain.

Star Wars The Force Awakens BB-8 Christmas Tree Ornament

The Force Awakens changed everything, and now the cutest Star Wars thing on this planet to hang on a Christmas tree is BB-8.

Star Wars Death Star Christmas Tree Ornament

This isn’t a moon hanging from your Christmas tree. It’s a fully operational Death Star Christmas ornament, with an awesome lights display to put on top of your tree and be a beacon to the entire living room.

Star Wars R2-D2 Christmas Tree Ornament

Staying in the ‘Christmas tree ornaments that light up’ narrative, here’s R2-D2 showing off his set of lights. Not Death Star impressive, but still pretty neat.

Star Wars C3-PO Christmas Tree Ornament

There’s something very helpless about C3-PO, who seems to stumble in and out of trouble wherever he goes. So a Christmas tree ornament of the protocol droid trapped in a glass ball makes a lot of sense.

Star Wars Jabba the Hutt Quote Christmas Tree Ornament

Some people love a good quote. Combine that with the galaxy’s favorite Hutt (Jabba, who else?) and you have yourself a wonderful, edgy Christmas tree ornament.

Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet Christmas Tree Ornament

When it comes to Stormtroopers, no one cares about their body, which is why a Stormtrooper helmet makes a much better Christmas tree ornament than the entire empire soldier.

Star Wars San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Boba Fett Christmas Tree Ornament

Words like collectors and exclusive also mean it’s expensive, but if you want a really special Star Wars item on your Christmas tree, this Boba Fett Christmas ornament is worth it.

Star Wars Rogue One Deathtrooper Christmas Tree Ornament

I’m not sure what’s the difference between a Deathtrooper and a Stormtrooper, but I guess we’ll find out in Rogue One: A Star Wars story. By the time you hang your Deathtrooper Christmas ornament, you’ll know.

Star Wars The Force Awakens X-Wing Fighter Christmas Tree Ornament

Something that I love to do on Christmas is hang Star Wars ships (an X-Wing in this case) on Christmas trees and them move them around while trying to make the sounds from the movie.
