* Gifts and decor for a wonderfully dorky holiday
* Winter holiday swag for Rick and Morty fans, gamers, and sci-fi nerds
* Plus, what might be the dorkiest stocking we’ve ever seen

In the infamous Star Wars Christmas Special, made in 1978, Chewbacca and Princess Leia sing and dance and celebrate an interstellar holiday called “life day.” Seems like the galaxy far, far away’s answer to Seinfeld’s Festivus, but anyway, here are nine of the best sci-fi inspired ways to “dork the halls” for any winter-ish holiday you might celebrate.

1. Mario Wreath

For those who’d rather get into the holiday spirit by playing some classic NES games than by crafting decorations, this Super-Mario themed wreath has you covered.

4. Death Star Christmas Tree Topper

If you think about it, Darth Vader isn’t that different from the Grinch. This Death Star Christmas tree topper is no angel, but it does light up.

5. Fantastic Beasts Niffler Ornament

This Niffler keepsake ornament is here to help you have a fantastic, hopefully not beastly, holiday. Unlike the real Niffler it will not steal all the other stocking stuffers. Hopefully.

6. Star Wars Cookie Cutters

Tired of the same old cookie cutter cookie cutters? Try these Star Wars ones instead and make a gingerbread Yoda, a “chewy” Wookie or snickerdoodle Darth Vader.

7. Death Star Disco Ball

That’s no paper moon! It’s a Death Star disco ball. Just the thing for a nerdy New Years party.

9. Game Controller Ornaments

Apparently, the ancient tradition was to put things that resembled fruit on winter holiday trees, in the hope that the coming year would bring a fruitful harvest. Now you can hang these classic console game controller ornaments in the hope that maybe some really nice games will come out next year.
