Favorite Things – Wonderful Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Nerds Like Me

A comprehensive list of last minute Christmas gifts for foodies, home cooks, garden hobbyist, readers, and all around generally awesome nerds.

Heads up, there are plenty of affiliate links in this post, but all links are things I truly love myself and would gift to my own friends.  Well, not my friends because none of them would love this shit, but you get the idea.

Also, if you don’t want any of this stuff, but still order on Amazon, if you click any of the links below and order what you were going to order anyway, I still get a little kick back.  Pretty sweet!

Need last minute gifts for the hippy or nerd in your life?  Don’t worry, your Fairy Dorkmother (me) is here to help.

Inexpensive – under $20

Medium priced – $30 ish


Eh, starting to make my wallet sweat – under $75

Ack, my mother-in-law is a hag and I’m desperate for her approval, so I’m willing to spend the money (PS: My MIL is not a hag.  I actually love her dearly):

I made a lot of homemade presents this year, but I still love to gift some of my store-bought favorite items to people I love.

What is on your Christmas list this year?

  1. Thanks for the link on the Wustoff knife. My husband will LOVE it!

  2. I put that yogurt maker on my list when I read your post about it! If it isn’t under my tree, I have accumulated enough amazon certificates (doing surveys) to get it my self! (unfortunately, I order from, which sucks because I would totally help you get a little kickback if .ca did that for you!!! We order all. the. time.)

    If I don’t comment on a post in the next few days, I wish you and your family a VERY Merry Christmas. Really. I do! I feel like I know you through reading and chatting with you in comments. 🙂

  3. Great list! We just bought the canner and knife bar all linked through your site, of course! Kat and I love your blog and have been borrowing many of your ideas and recipes. Next on the list is the water kefir grains!

  4. There is NO way I will ever learn to use a ricer. Out of my reach. Maybe a garlic press. Maybe.

  5. I have a reel mower and love it. I can hear the birds and do not have to fight vibration or the smell of gasoline. Love it. However, I have had it about 25 years.

    From freecycle I received a yogurt maker. Then, I purchased an Excalibur, 9 tray dehydrator. I can set the half pints in the yogurt maker to make yogurt. So, I packed the yogurt maker away for awhile. If all goes well, I might give away the yogurt-maker, maybe as a prized on my blog. I LOVE my yogurt maker and dehydrator.
