Lamps: in spite of what one of 2018’s strangest internet trends may think, they’re not just for moths. Here some wonderfully geeky ways to shine some new light into an old (or new) room. From phasers to Harry Potter-themed wands, these seven lights just might help put a smile on your face, even while in the temperate northern hemisphere it’s now getting dark at 5:30 pm.

1. Lightsaber String Lights

These lightsaber-themed string lights are just the thing to add some Star Wars cheer to your winter holiday decor. Also appropriate any time you have people over to watch the legendary Star Wars Christmas Special.

4. Star Trek TOS Phaser Mood Light

This rock-shaped mood light comes with an IR remote control shaped like the phasers from Star Trek: The Original Series. Just point the “phaser” at the rock and it glows. You can “set the mood,” with either a soothing warm rock or a dazzling light show rock.

5. Hatching Dino Candle

As this egg-shaped candle burns down, the wax melts to reveal a cute porcelain baby Dinosaur. Makes a great gift for paleontologists and Jurassic World fans.
