So, here’s the deal, folks. I know you might not know me well enough yet to see this for yourself, but let me be the first to tell you.
I’m. A . Nerd.
That’s right! A bona fide anime-cosplaying, Star Wars-loving, Disney-adoring, MMO-gaming, Marvel fangirling, Tardis-daydreaming, Harry-Potter-premiere-costume-wearing, forever X-Files-loving NERD. And I’ve embraced that. I’ve never been shy of the things that I love, and that love has only increased as I’ve gotten older and decided that I truly don’t care what anyone thinks of me.
I know I’m not the only one out there like me. Most of my friends are just as nerdy as me, and I doubt that the entire group of nerds are all somehow shoveled in to this tiny corner of the world.
I also happen to spend a lot of my time in the kitchen. Yep, I’m a foodie. Aside from cooking and baking, I also love to eat out at different restaurants, checking out their newest and best dishes. All that combined with my job.
Conclusion: my life pretty much revolves around food.
So. Who better to put together a nerd’s kitchen wish list than a nerd who spends a vast amount of time in the kitchen?! The list I’ve compiled contains things on my actual Christmas list (hint hint), or are things I already have in my kitchen. So go forth and shop for the foodie nerd of your heart with The Nerdy Foodie Christmas Gift Guide!! We all have one (even if it’s you)!
FOR THE DOCTOR WHO NERD
A Tardis Refrigerator! Your argument is invalid. It’s actually just a kit that you adhere to your existing fridge, but holy cow, how cool! They even sell a sound box that will emit Tardis noises when you open the door. Definite want!
If a large-sized Tardis fridge is a no-go, how about a desktop mini fridge? Perfect to hold your snacks and drinks while at work, or as you wile away the hours on the internet.
How about a Tardis Cookie Jar? Do you sense a trend?
Every kitchen table needs a Police Box and Dalek salt & pepper shaker set, with a matching creamer & sugar bowl!
And why not jazz up your Christmas cookie variety with Tardis & Weeping Angel Cookie Cutters? Allons-y!
FOR THE STAR WARS NERD
I’ve been dying to get my hands on this R2D2 Measuring Set – I think I might find it under the tree this year! Hints have been dropped!
Do you have a grill king (or queen) in your shopping list? Have they always wanted to be a Jedi? These BBQ tongs SOUND LIKE A LIGHTSABER.
How hilarious would it be to see the one you love cooking or grilling in this Slave Princess Leia Apron?
FOR THE STAR TREK NERD
I’ve always been more of a Star Wars fan, but the movie reboots have made me fangirl over Spock more than once. It would be easy to rock this Vulcan Peace Oven Mitt in my kitchen.
This is Shatner. This is Shatner as Kirk. This is Shatner as Kirk as a Wine Stopper. Mr. Spock also available. Nimoy or Quinto, I’m not sure.
FOR THE HOLLYWOOD BOOK NERD
Harry pretty much sums it up for you in this simple statement mug. Be not ashamed of your Potterhead status.
KitchenAid Mixer decals!! Etsy has so many of them, but this adorable Potions Master one from Harry Potter stood out to me – love!!!
For the Hunger Games fan, this Mellark Bakery Apron is a reminder of the way things were…before the Capitol ruined everything. *sniffle*
Everyone needs a superhero (spatula) in their kitchen! I just happened to choose Iron Man because he’s my fave. I have a thing for Tony Stark. Don’t judge.
These are probably the coolest drink coasters I’ve ever seen. And bonus! They’re themed after the houses of Games of Thrones. No fighting over who gets to be Khaleesi! (Cuz it’s always me.)
If Tardis cookie jars aren’t your thing, you can always keep your sweets in a Dragon Egg Canister. And fool people into thinking you’re Queen of the Dragons.
FOR THE GAMER NERD
Any Zelda fan would adore these Hyrule Shot Glasses! Fill one with health potion and one with mana potion!
These Zelda-themed glasses are cold activated. When they’re all filled up, the hearts are red and you’re alive! When low on beverage, the hearts deplete. Time for a refill before you need a fairy to continue!
Portal bookends! If only you could teleport straight through all your cookbooks and retain all of their knowledge!
FOR THE DISNEY NERD
Who wouldn’t want to eat their waffles in the shape of the infamous Mouse? You don’t have to be AT Disney World to eat them this way, just wrap up a Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker!
I actually have these Mickey Measuring Spoons. They add a little extra magic to my baking sessions!
Matching Mickey Measuring Cups. If you’re going to get them spoons, you may as well complete the set!
And a Theme Park Exclusive Mickey Spatula. For all your flipping (or slapping) needs.
I’m obsessed with Frozen. I’m comfortable admitting that. Anything Elsa, I’m all over it. This Anna & Elsa Mug Set is beautiful, and any Disney or Frozen fan would adore them.
….AAAAAND FOR THE RANDOM NERD
SPAM Unicorn Meat. Why not?

Thank you, Nadeen! I had fun putting it together!
Oh no you are not alone! We all have a thing for Tony Stark… and the Doctor…
This list is amazing. I too really want that R2-D2 measuring cup set, and I’ve been looking for a good s&p shaker…
erica acevedo says
It’s amazing, Tony and the Doctor are so different, but they have such a draw…
Such a great list! I love the Mickey measuring cups.
erica acevedo says
They are ADORABLE!

Christina Thomas says
