Geeky Wedding Gift Guide

As we head into the popular fall wedding season, many people are pondering the big question: What to buy as gifts?

Couples often use their big day as a celebration of everything they love, including their fandoms. That can leave guests a little uncertain of what to buy, especially if they don’t share the same passions.

But don’t worry — Sideshow has you covered. If you’re looking for a thoughtful gift that isn’t on the registry, or if you’re looking to fill out your own registry with something a little different, we have some unique suggestions below that are perfect for geeky couples and geeky themed weddings. Our guide features ideas covering all budgets and fandoms, and with styles ranging from subtle nods to grand declarations of geekiness, you’re guaranteed to find something the soonlyweds will love.

Something Collected, Something New

A love of pop culture needn’t be confined to one room — it can be expressed in all areas of the home. Kitchenware, a popular choice on every registry, gets a geeky update with fun yet practical items such as the R2-D2™ Popcorn Maker and Lightsaber™ Electric Salt and Pepper Mill Grinder set.

From goblets to tankards, here’s an extensive collection of barware that will fit any fandom or budget. The Tiki range is especially popular and a piece such as the Queen Amidala™ mug or the Batman mug could kickstart the happy couple’s collection.

The Mickey and Minnie Beverage Glass Set makes a splendid gift and comes packaged in a wedding-worthy acacia box.

And don’t forget the Castle Grayskull Crest Porcelain Cup & Saucer Set! Inspired by an actual Imperial dinner service used by the Romanov Dynasty, this fine tableware is fit for Eternian Royalty.

To Have and To Hold (Collectibles)

Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, and DC Comics characters rendered in deluxe pewter, silver, and porcelain are an elegant way to commemorate that special day.

Or why not go all out with large statement pieces for the home, such as Premium Format™ statues, life-size busts, life-size figures, and prop replicas? The Child Life-Size Figure is an adorable addition to any home.

The Kylo Ren™ and Rey™ Premium Format™ Figures are designed to pair perfectly together, just like the newlyweds! For couples who’ve “gotta catch ‘em all” a replica Poké Ball makes for a wonderful statement piece. Or add a whole family of dragons to their home with Toothless, Light Fury, Dart, Pouncer, and Ruffrunner (sold separately).

For romantic gifting, there are many iconic pop culture couples celebrated in statue form including Disney favorites Jack and Sally and Beauty and the Beast, as well as comic book duos Batman and Catwoman and Spider-Man and Mary Jane.

(Collectibles) To Love and To Cherish

This selection of high quality fine art giclées, lithographs, and aluminum prints transforms dull walls into glorious galleries. From art celebrating favorite couples of fandom, such as Gambit and Rogue or Wanda and Vision, to beautiful locales everyone would love to honeymoon in (Rivendell: The Last Homely House East of the Sea), there’s something for every wall.

If you’d rather gift something 3D for their walls, the Poison Ivy Wall Hanging and Harley Quinn Wall Hanging make a great set.

For an extra special way to celebrate the nuptials, the limited edition Meanwhile, at the Sweet Shoppe… XL Deluxe Diamond Dust Fine Art Print by celebrated artist Olivia De Berardinis is created with a unique process utilizing silk screens and glass diamond dust to highlight key elements on the image with a mesmerizing, sparkling effect.

These pieces are a gift that the happy couple can enjoy in their home for years to come.

Happily (Collected) Ever After

And for the quiet nights in, here’s a range of puzzles and books that will keep them amused. The Star Wars Classic Chess Set by Royal Selangor is a stunning collection of playable art with enduring appeal. The Winterfell 3D Puzzle has a challenging 910 pieces, but is still easier to master than the Game of Thrones. Lavishly illustrated books covering a variety of fandoms and cult topics such as The Art of Mondo and Star Wars Art: Ralph McQuarrie, tributes to Sideshow’s own print collections and statues, as well as exquisite box sets and themed cookery books from Insight Editions, are delightful gifts which also look great on shelves and coffee tables.
