2016 Holiday Horror Nerd Gift Guide: Home Decor Edition

2016 Gift Guide

For those of you out there struggling to find the perfect present for that special horror nerd in your life, here is a rundown of some pretty awesome gift ideas. While I’m sure these are all things we would enjoy discovering under the tree come December 25th, this is basically my own wish list, so feel free to let me know if I should set up a PO Box. I’m joking, of course…mostly.

I’ve scoured the internet to find some really unique stuff. Each week I’ll be bringing you a new list featuring different types of items. This week we’ve got…

Home Decor

Do you know someone who just moved? Did they realize the Feds were getting too close to unveiling their handy-work? Did the blood trail lead all the way to their front door? You know being a geographically specific serial killer is risky business. ANYWAY…chances are your friend is in need of some decor to spruce up their new crib.

Available from Horror Decor:

Gremlins Wreath Pillow

Nothing screams the Holidays like Gremlins. What better way to lounge around the Christmas Tree in front of a crackling fire than by resting your head on this cushy pillow?

Gremlins Pillow

The Pillow: $14

VHS Pillow

That person on your gift-list not a fan of Gremlins? Is that humanly possible? I dunno, but if so here’s an alternative option: an awesome throwback to those youthful trips to the video store, a VHS pillow! Not only does the pillow itself look like an actual cassette tape, but the front is interchangeable. They’ve got labels for everything from Friday the 13th: Part 3, Return of the Living Dead, and even Dr. Giggles(?)!

Here’s a great promo video to really nail the point home:

VHS Pillow

The Pillow: $20

Deadly Friend Pillow Label

The Labels: $3 each

Available from Etsy’s Horror Shop:

Elvira, Coffin Framed Art

This gorgeous, comic book inspired image comes in a handmade, coffin-shaped frame. This piece is created by Bwanadevil, whose shop (here) features numerous horror pieces from Carrie to Stranger Things. They’re the perfect artwork to darken the walls of any devilish fiend’s humble abode.

Elvira Coffin Art

Elvira Art: $39.18

Godzilla vs Mothra Vinyl Record Clock

I’m a huge Godzilla nerd, and while the medium of a vinyl record might not make the most sense to portray a battle between The King of the Monsters and his biggest enemy (and sometime compadre), Mothra – this piece is still pretty amazing. Created to order by High5Design, it’s suggested orders are placed at least 3 weeks in advance of needed delivery. So if you’re planning to gift this to someone by December 25th, get on it!

Godzilla v Mothra Clock

The Clock: $50

Hellraiser Piggy Bank

We all know we love it: storing up your months worth of loose change and pocket lint for that magical day when you finally get to cash it all in at a Coin Star machine. Why not store it up in this shiny Lament Configuration coin bank? With this, you can rest easy knowing your sticky-fingered roommate would be too scared to go anywhere near it. Made to order by TheHorrorCorner.

Hellraiser Bank

Hellraiser Bank: $9.99

Available from CafePress’s Horror Home Decor:

I'm a long time horror nerd and wannabe director. My inspirations are varied from Wes Craven, Dario Argento, George Romero, Lucio Fulci, John Carpenter, and even some John Waters and Joss Whedon. My tastes are all over the place within the genre. Give me highbrow, gross out, slow burn, rubber suit wearing, action/horror hybrid...I love it all. I enjoy writing and talking about all aspects of horror. BONUS FACT: I love cooking and eating anything with pumpkin in it.
