Unique Gifts for Star Trek Fans

Updated on December 21, 2013

Gifts Any Star Trek Fan Will Love

In 1966 two things were born.

One was a television series that would become one of the most well known science fiction series ever.

The other was the man who I would later ask me to marry him.

However, I was not his first love. No, his first love was that Sci-fi series, Star Trek.

Yes, its true. I married a Trekkie!

On one hand it is very annoying, because I know I'll be watching at least one episode of Star Trek every day for the rest of my life. But on the other hand it comes in handy, because I always know the perfect gift to get him. That gift would be anything with Captain Kirk or Mr. Spock on it that he doesn't already have.

What I've shared below are a few of the more unique items I've found over the years while searching for a gift for my the Trekkie I married.

Star Trek Ugly Christmas Sweater

And here we have, featured special for the Christmas holiday, a Star Trek Kirk, Spock, Bones "Ugly Christmas Sweater" style sweatshirt

When looking for something unique for your Star Trek loving friend, or even for your Star Trek loving self, you will be hard pressed to find something much more unique than this sweatshirt.

You will be the envy of any holiday office parties, and you are sure to win every Ugly Sweater award just as soon as you walk into the room.

I can vouch for it being a hit because my Star Trek loving husband said, "I NEED that shirt!" just as soon as I showed it to him.

Swoosh!

Just picture the following item in the entryway of a Star Trek fan's home. Or at the very least in the entry of a Trekkies man cave.

This doorway sensor announces a visitors presence with the classic SWOOSH of the doors sliding open on the original Star Trek series. OR, if you're feeling threatened or just anti-social you can set it to alarm with the RED ALERT mode on.

Either way this doorway sensor is almost the single most unique Star Trek item I found that you could give someone as a gift.

This motion-sensitive door chime is modeled after the communicator panels on The Original Series

Mount it next to your door (on whatever side you choose) and when someone crosses the threshold, the chime will sound.

It can chime with the door opening sound effect or the Red Alert alarm.

Star Trek Kitchen Gear

The heart of a home is the Kitchen, or so they say.

So if you know a Star Trek fan without any Enterprise kitchen utensils, then you should change that right now!

The universe is vast, and the Star Trek kitchen gear could fill up every corner of it. Mugs and coasters, salt and pepper shakers, bottle openers and even pizza slicers! Any good Trekkie would want them ALL!

Here are a few, just to get you started.

Kirk and Spock Really Know How to Shake It Up!

Or an enterprise spatual to flip those pancakes in out of this world style!

 

Star Trek Clothes

While the world is full of Star Trek t-shirts, there is more to the world of Trekkie apparal than that.

Socks for one.

While I roam my home in bare feet, my husband ALWAYS has socks on. So some Star Trek socks seem to be a perfect gift.

Or robes. He has a ratty tatty old blue robe that is probably older than I am. As a Trekkie, I know he would LOVE a Captain Kirk or Mr. Spock robe to replace it.

Spock Socks, and More

Star Trek Uniform Socks -- Command - Science - Engineering -- Set Of 3 Pairs, Assorted Colors, Men's 9-12

My Trekkie husband keeps talking about these socks, so rest assured that your average Star Trek fan will love them.

If you want something a little less obvious, try these simple socks with the iconic communicator logo on them.

 
Socks - 2 Pairs Of Star Trek - Ufp Logo - One Size Fits All World Of Film Berlin

Or this pair, with the UFP (United Federation of Planets) logo.

 

Slippers

Tribbles, you either love them or you hate them. Or, if you are a Klingon you REALLY hate them.

A take off of the classic bunny slippers, you can wear a Tribble on your feet to keep your toes nice and warm.

As an added bonus they even purr like a real Tribble!

Robes

Feeling like a Captain, don this fleece robe in Kirks commanding gold.

Beam aboard the fun this this red Engineering Scotty robe.

 

Crafts and DIY

While I married a Trekkie, and I am a fan of Star Trek, I don't cross the threshold into Trekkie territory. I can take it or leave it. And after being exposed to it so much throughout my marriage I mostly leave it at this point.

I am, however, a HUGE fan of crafts and DIY.

After seeing these books on Amazon I feel driven to make an "Expendable" red-shirt cross stitch.

Oh, and a Star Trek insignia on a canvas to "Boldy Go" in my husbands man cave is another great craft idea.

You don't have to be a Trekkie to love some of the amazing craft ideas in these books.

After all, who wouldn't want a Spock sock monkey?

Craft Books

Cross-Stitch: Explore Strange New Worlds of Crafting
Cross-Stitch: Explore Strange New Worlds of Crafting

Amazing Cross Stitch patterns, ranging from homey enterprise stitches to snarky reminders that anyone wearing red is expendable. A MUST HAVE for stitching Trekkies

Make a canvas to "Boldly Go" in your home, stuff a Spock Sock Monkey or have fun trying any one of this assimilation of Star Trek craft ideas.

 

Have you seen a unique Star Trek gift I might have overlooked? Feel free to tell me about it!

      Nice lens for all Trekkies with a well rounded selection of gift possibilities. i did a similar lens too. Enjoyed watching Star Trek each week to see where the Enterprise took them and what adventure laid ahead for the crew. I appreciate you stopping by my Turkey Meatball lens and giving it a "thumbs up". Thank You & Happy New Year, 2014.
