It’s only a couple more days until Christmas now and I still don’t know if I’m even in the Christmas spirit yet… You know? I don’t know what it’s been this year, I think I’ve just been far too busy with work and in general to get festive. That or I’m just getting to be an old Grinch… 😛
I’m trying to get into the Christmas spirit though so today I’m bringing a collab post to you all! Me and Sarah over at Raiin Monkey decided to do another collab post for Christmas again! We did last year and I loved it so much, so much so I knew we had to work together again to bring you our posts today.
Sarah’s going to write about how to make your home geeky this Christmas and I’m going to write how to make your dinner table geeky for Christmas Day!
I’m having Christmas dinner at home for the first time this year, so I’m rather excited to cook for me and Dane! This geeky dinner table guide from myself will be handy if like me this is also your first Christmas at home where you’re having dinner. 🙂
I really hope you enjoy this geek related Christmas post! 😀
- Original Stormtrooper Espresso Mug Set – (link)
Personally I love coffee, but I has espresso. It just isn’t for me. I do understand some people do really like it though and especially love to have it after a meal. I don’t know anyone who has had an espresso after a Christmas meal to be honest with you, but I know there’s someone out there who does it… There has to be! Maybe you’re one of those people? If so these espresso mugs will be right up your street! Hey! If you don’t use them for espresso, they’ll make great glasses for some strong liquor to go into, such as Bailey’s or maybe some Jack Daniels or Disaronno. I’d certainly go for the latter. 😉
I LOVE these Geeki Tiki mugs so much and they’d make a great addition to your home all year around, as well as Christmas. If you love making cocktails like I do, these will be perfect throughout Christmas Day! When I lived at home I’d always make me and mom a pina colada each to drink throughout the day. These geeky tiki mugs would be perfect for that, as well as other cocktails and beverages! There’s loads of mugs to choose from but the two I love the most are Deadpool and R2-D2.

As much as I’ve had enough of Christmas music now (after hearing every single possible Christmas song thanks to Magic FM…) I’m pretty much done for a couple of years now. 😛 However, I know a lot of people like to have Christmas music on throughout Christmas Day. Me and Dane have an Amazon Echo now so if we want some music on throughout the day we can just ask Alexa, however now everyone has that luxury. This Shadow Trooper speaker is pretty damn cool and even if you don’t have this for yourself in the house, it would also make an amazing gift for any music lover! You can have this on near the dinner table and listen to as much cheesy Christmas music as you want. 😛
- Shaun Of The Dead Winchester Tavern Pint Bottle Opener – (link)
I am a MASSIVE fan of Shaun Of The Dead! It reminds me of when I was a teenager and studying my GCSE’s! When I lived at home we were always losing or misplacing our bottle opener and like most people on Christmas, we all drink a LOT of alcohol! This is just a cool and quirky bottle opener, not even so much geeky to be fair but I really like it.
- Star Wars Stormtrooper Cheeseboard and Knife Set – (link)
Who doesn’t love some cheese on Christmas? Or anytime of year in fact! 😛 I remember last Christmas Dane’s family having a bit of a cheese selection after dinner, where I remember me eating all of the Applewood, because Applewood chedder is the God of chedder. 😛 This cheeseboard is pretty amazing as it looks gorgeous and inside it has loads of different edible tools for cheese. It’s just perfect for any geeky Christmas table!
- Marvel Deadpool Salt & Pepper Shakers – (link)
I was so close to buying these a week ago when I popped into Nostalgia Comics in Birmingham town centre! I love Deadpool and having Deadpool themed things in my house is always something good to have. 😛 These aren’t over the top but will stand out on the table for Christmas dinner and the good thing is these can be used all year around too. I know some people who have Christmas themed salt and pepper shakers and it’s just pointless for one day really.
- Pokemon Pikachu Cake Pan – (link)
Finally we have a Pokemon item on this list! I thought I would have had loads of Pokemon items on here for Christmas but could I find much? Could I bugger! The reason this cake pan is included in here is because I know not everyone likes Christmas pudding, myself included in there. I’m thinking of making some chocolate brownies Christmas Eve ready for Christmas Day. If I had it my way I’d make a chocolate cake using this Pikachu cake pan. 😛 It’s just so adorable and you could do so much with it come Christmas Day.
So there you have it, all my ideas of how you can geek up your table on Christmas Day! I know they’re not the best suggestions in the world, but they’re my suggestions and the best I could find so close to Christmas to be fair. 😛
Do you think you’ll geek up your table for Christmas Day? I don’t know if me and Dane will. We have a funky table cloth and some napkins, but that’s about it so far.
Again I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to Sarah for collaborating with me again! She’s one of my best friends of the blogging world and I do love her so much. 🙂
Are you ready for Christmas? Let me know in the comments what your plans are for Christmas and how you intend to spend the day!
Until next time all, take care and I hope you’re ready for the weekend, I know I am after a long and busy week of work. 😛

Im excited for xmas!! Since Im a guest, i wont be able to geek up the place but maybe once im in my own home😁
Aww bless you! 😛 I didn’t really geek up my Christmas table this year, but I think I might try to next year. ^_^
I have some geeky decorations but I don’t think the rest of the family would appreciate a geeky table. When I do my own Christmas I am totally doing it though, but I think my kitchen might end up full of geeky things anyway, I already have some Doctor Who egg cups and espresso cups from a geek box, though I don’t like espresso either. I love the idea of a geeky cheeseboard, it’s perfect when it comes with the little forks and stuff too, keeps it all hidden and neat. So many of the Pokemon things are limited edition and not around for long, though I don’t think they do too many tableware bits, it’s more bento boxes and accessories I’ve seen. I do kind of love the idea of a Christmas Pikachu cake though 😄
I have to be honest I think the Stormtrooper cheeseboard was my favourite thing on that list! It was just so amazing with the cutlery hidden away. 😀 I didn’t think about much Pokemon things to be honest with you… I have some Pokemon tumblrs in my kitchen but even then those are actually jars! I just use them as glasses because they’re too good not to. 😛
I’ve always liked cheeseboards that do that, it’s like a hidden compartment and I always wanted one when I was little. My sales buying may include some Pokémon goodies, though I’m trying to be good the rement pokeball terrarium sets are so cute and I love how easy they would be to clean too. I love the figures I have out but they’re so fiddly so I like finding easy clean things too 😁
