Review – Lovarzi Official licensed products

If you're looking for Christmas gifts for a Trekkie than take a look at these winter wonders from Lovarzi. As we state in our vblog review, we are cautious when people ask us to review their products - mostly because we don't want to be in the awkward position of having to saying anything negative should we believe the product be worthy of disposable by a garbage scow! Fortunately we were relieved to discover that the Umbrella's and Scarf's on offer from Lovarzi were good quality so we were happy to give them an honest review. Available to buy direct from Lovarzi whilst stock lasts ... Perfect for this British weather!

What not to buy a Trekkie for Christmas

In previous years, we have scouted the net far and wide looking for the best gifts to help give the Star Trek fan in your life that perfect prezzie. This year we thought we'd do things a bit differently. You see the problem with being such a well known fan of Star Trek is that it makes for easy gift giving. You can buy just about anything with the brand name stuck to it. Not to sound ungrateful but some products can range from weird to plain horrendous. So here's a few of our favourite 'What `the Spock, did they actually make that?' products.... The Wrath Of Khan - Spock dying - Christmas tree decoration When Hallmark were looking at Star Treks greatest moments to immortalise them, did they ever think 'Spock dying on a Christmas tree might be a bit naff?' Clearly not! You can enjoy this beautiful scene of … Continue Reading ››

Our friends at the New Starship Foundation are eBaying the Captain Picard chair from their Bridge that they salvaged from the 1998 Star Trek Tour.

Top Trekkie Xmas Presents

What do you buy the Trekkie who has everything? We assume that most fans have the basics, the DVDs (in various formats and editions), the books, the T-Shirts - even the rubbish ones but its sacrilege to throw away anything that bears the word Star and Trek.


So we look to the great material continuum to provide. Here is what we have found:


Forget Diamonds, A VISOR is a girls best friend! Not sure whether the creator went out to design a ring that looked like Geordi's eye wear or if it was a happy accident but it is certainly unique!
We love this item but only buy this for your most dedicated Trekkie Girl or your love life might start to resemble Geordi's too.

What to buy a Trekkie for Christmas?

With the run up to Christmas, we like many others have avoided the shops like the Telurian Plague and taken to shopping online. But what do you buy the Trekkie in your life? Here are some of our top finds:
Compare the Meerkat fans?
 
I'll admit to buying my car insurance through Compare The Market just to get one of their cute Meerkat cuddly toys. For your Meerkat crazed star trek fan you have to check out these adorable little fellas.
These are knitted to order and I personally love Worf and Locutus.
 
For your slightly slutty friend
