Last Minute Geek Gifts

Whew, almost didn't get this post out by the end of Thursday! Sorry, dealing with a little bit of holiday craziness, so haven't had time to think or write. But at least I managed to finish all my Christmas craft gifts in time, including a batch for my anime watching group. 2 of the guys are really into Dungeons & Dragons, which K absolutely abhors. He's never been into pen and paper games in the first place, but his last last job was working on a dungeon crawler game that required him to read every D&D manual in existence, so now he really hates it. My anime friends like to poke at this weakness by constantly asking him, "What's your armor class, K?"

So how does D&D relate to geek gifts? For their Christmas presents, I decided to crank out a pair of dice bags, since different types of dice are commonly used to play D&D. What do ya think?

Every D&D geek I know has an automatic fascination with Cthulhu, so can't go wrong there.

One of the guys is creeped out by anything to do with eyeballs, so of course I had to address his "phobia." ;)

For K, I'll totally admit I copped out and bought him a geeky t-shirt online. Will let you what he thinks. Hope all of you have a very merry Christmas, void of stress and instead filled with God's peace and joy! ^_^
