Christmas is a time for both peace on Earth and peace throughout the galaxy. We’ve caught some of the geekiest Christmas decorations in our tractor beam that’ll make anyone with a geeky side to feel festive. Whether you prefer to hang a model U.S.S Enterprise from your tree or a life-like model of Hermione Granger, there’s a Christmas Tree Ornament other there that will brighten up your holiday season.

1Thats No Moon

Now you can utter the immortal words from Obi Wan when people ask about the moon on top of your tree. The amazing detail on this tree topper will have guests in its tractor beam as it plays The Imperial March and Star Wars: Main Title music and lights the way through a festive galaxy. Will you use its power for good or evil?

What we love

  • It has inbuilt flashing lights that move to the music
  • Comes with a remote control to activate lights and music

We dont like this as much

  • Doesn’t include a transformer to power the lights

2Its-a-Mario

What would Christmas be without an Italian plumber around to save the day? Threat not, Mario tree ornaments are here. Wearing his iconic blue overalls and red hat, Mario will show off your geeky side at this festive time with his arms open wide and moustache on point, keeping any cat at bay. “Lets-a-Go!”

What we love

  • Amazing detail on Mario's face with vivid colors
  • Great size for the tree (2.80” tall)

We dont like this as much

  • Made from resin so it is quite fragile

3U.S.S. Enterprise

Beam me up Santa. From its missions under Captain Kirk in 2265, straight to your Christmas tree, this ornament will prove your dedication to being a Trekkie. Showing immense details down to the windows, the engine nacelles and the serial number of the ship, this is a decoration you’ll hang on the tree stardate after stardate.

What we love

  • Made from metal
  • Can double as a shelf ornament after the holidays

We dont like this as much

  • Could be lighter, might sag on long tree branches

4Minecraft Undead

Bring your gaming world alive with the Minecraft zombie ornament hanging from your tree. In true Minecraft style, the zombie has a pixelated cube for a head with block arms, body and legs. With the same colors as in the game, the zombie looks like it has crept out from the darkness right onto your tree.

What we love

  • It’s sturdy and has a little weight to it
  • Fantastic attention to detail

We dont like this as much

  • Could be a little bigger

5Rubik's Cube

Remember the 80s? It was the golden age of the geek. Video games were accessible, movies like Weird Science were in the theaters and the Rubik’s Cube was the symbol of any geekiness. Transport yourself to these times with this practical ornament. Not only is it an actual moving Rubik’s Cube, but you can hang it once completed to show how smart you are.

What we love

  • Makes for a great challenge over the holidays
  • Bright and colorful

We dont like this as much

  • Squares could be more maneuverable

6Ya Filthy Animal

Do you ever get that feeling you’ve left something off your Christmas tree? KEVIN!? No, not Kevin, but if you leave this ornament off you’ll have that feeling. Adapted from the famous line from 1992s hit Christmas movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, the bright shiny red decoration will have you shouting, “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal!”

  • Come in red and gold festive colors

We dont like this as much

  • Could be a little bigger

When you’re a proud Whovian, there’s no time of year you can’t display your passion for the Doctor. Christmas is no different. The famous blue police box can now grace your tree. This ornament has the Tardis dusted with snow with it’s own wreath to celebrate the holidays. Keep your eyes on it through as it could disappear at any point.

What we love

  • The ornament has a light effect built in
  • The snow and wreath are a great added touch

We dont like this as much

  • Takes AG-13 batteries not AA

8Stocking Who

Another Doctor Who ornament to add to your collection to transport your fireplace to a different dimension. This stocking will hang proudly ready for Davros to fill with presents (he’s such a nice guy). It comes with details such as the windows of the phone box and the instructions on its door. I wonder if it’s as roomy inside as the original? 

What we love

  • The cuff is designed as the top of the tardis
  • Stocking can be personalized with a name

We dont like this as much

  • The stocking only has the design on one side

9R2D2

These are the Christmas tree lights you’re looking for. This 10 light set of everyone’s favourite droid will bring festive joy to any geeks tree. With the ever loyalR2D2 watching over the rest of the ornaments you’ll have nothing to worry about.

  • 30 inch cable to stretch around the tree

We dont like this as much

  • They have filament bulbs not LED

10HAL 9000

The year is 2020 or is it 2001? Either way HAL 9000 will give you a glimpse into the future from the past from the ultimate in space odysseys. This geeky ornament will light up your tree with it’s red dot and say several memorable phrases from the classic 1968 Kubrick movie. “This decoration is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.”

  • Can be displayed all year round
  • At 4.0” long, it is a great size

We dont like this as much

  • The voice is not the original one from the movie

11SS Georgie

For all you horror geeks out there, climb aboard the SS Georgie and take a cruise down the nearest drain to meet your doom with Pennywise the clown. Following its newfound popularity with the 2017 reboot, this ornament will separate those in the know. Covered in Georgies blood, the sailboat made from “newspaper” will give your tree a sinister vibe.

What we love

  • Made from natural painted wood
  • Nice detail of the newspaper being the Derry Herald

We dont like this as much

  • It is only painted on one side

12Astronaut

Since geeks first walked the earth, they have been looking up to the moon and dreaming of what could be found on its surface.

What we love

  • Perfect for the space obsessed
  • Hand painted and glittered

We dont like this as much

  • Could be bigger

In 2016, Netflix launched geeks around the globe into nostalgia mode with the hit show Stranger Things. Creating a new generation of nerds who appreciate all things 80s and rekindling the nation’s love for a certain brand of frozen waffle. This playful yellow decoration shaped like an Eggo also contains ‘Eleven’ on one side and ‘Stranger Things’ on the other.

What we love

  • The text drips as to emulate syrup
  • Waffle print on both sides

We dont like this as much

  • ‘Stranger Things’ text could be more accurate to show

14Pickle Rick

Fans of Rick and Morty will undoubtedly state this guy as their favorite incarnation of the mad scientist Grandfather. What starts as a way to get out of family counseling (yes, by turning himself into a pickle) the episode takes us on a mad journey as always. The bright green decoration complete with pickle bumps also has Rick wearing a Santa hat, which i’m sure he’d hate.

What we love

  • The face looks exactly like Pickle Rick from the show
  • The Santa hat is an hilarious addition.

We dont like this as much

  • Be better if it lit up

15Link

One of the greatest heroes from the Nintendo universe, Link has been the star of The Legend of Zelda series since 1986. See him guarding your Christmas tree wearing his iconic green hat, holding his shield and always ready for a fight with his sword. A great addition to any geeks tree, just don’t leave him next to your Ganon ornament.

What we love

  • His look is based on the original Link costume
  • The ornament plays 8-bit music from the game

We dont like this as much

  • Can be connected to other characters in the same range

We dont like this as much

  • Made from transparent blue glass

We dont like this as much

18G.O.T

Where is a sword wielding geek meant to store all the spoils they have collected from their travels through Westeros? Try this Game of Thrones 19 inch stocking. Decorated with the crests of each house from the blockbuster TV series and forever continuing books, only a true King will be able to name each one without thinking. Christmas is coming…too obvious?

What we love

  • The stocking has gold lettering for an extra festive touch
  • It has a regal look

We dont like this as much

  • Be nicer if the sigils were embroidered instead of printed.

19Bob Ross

From Kings of the Iron Throne to the King of the canvas. Bob Ross has been showing us the joy of painting since 1983 and has found a new generation of fans through spoof appearances in Family Guy and Deadpool 2. Now with his show getting major attention through YouTube, there’s no better time to celebrate his life with this ornament.

What we love

  • He is wearing a Christmas jumper
  • Has a great caricature likeness

We dont like this as much

  • Could be bigger

20Batman Stocking

There’s only one stocking hanging on Bruce Waynes enormous fireplace, but would it be too obvious if it was a Batman stocking? This decoration would be perfect for a double bluff in Batman’s original colors black/blue, the old school yellow Batman symbol on the side and it even comes with it’s own cape. Perfect for any festive caped crusader.

What we love

  • Enough room to fill with Bat treats
  • The cape is a great touch

We dont like this as much

  • The cuff is a little too thick
