Rather than buying a gift for every single person this Christmas, my family decided to draw names! We will each buy for one person, which will result in me saving a small fortune (that I will promptly spend on diapers and cute baby clothes). I drew my 19 year old brother Carter’s name!
Carter is a creative, artistic, nerdy guy. When I say nerdy I don’t mean a pair of glasses with tape on the bridge and suspenders holding up his khakis; in this day and age being nerdy is a cool thing! He loves shows like Doctor Who, Game Of Thrones and X-Men. Like any other 19 year old, he also LOVES to drink. What gift could I possibly get him that would combine his love of nerd culture and booze? The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy!
The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy $27.18 at Amazon) was written by Andy Heidel, owner of The Way Station, a Doctor Who themed bar in Brooklyn, New York. The book includes over 100 tried and tested cocktail recipes such as the George R. R. Martini; Close Encounters of the Third Lime; Cognac the Barbarian; and the Shirley Temple of Doom. Each recipe is easy to follow and includes many jokes that the nerd in your life is sure to love!
After partaking in the fun that comes along with The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy, Carter may need a *very* quiet activity for the following day! Keep Merry and Color On from Zendoodle Coloring ($11.79 at Amazon) is the perfect way to relax and keep yourself entertained when you’ve indulged in a bit too much Christmas cheer the night before!
Keep Calm and Color On is an adult colouring book that includes 75 yuletide illustrations. The book comes with 6 double ended pencil crayons in a variety of colours. Shading in the Christmas themed designs including reindeer, snowflakes, mittens and (of course!) Santa Claus, can really help you get into the spirit of the season!
The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy and Keep Merry and Color On are two great gift options for the nerd or blooming artist in your life!
