A Geek’s Guide: 7 Gifts for a Space Princess

As a lover of all things space related I’ve decided to compile a little gift guide; for the Space Princess in your life! It was so difficult not to post literally everything I have that’s space related, but I’ve whittled it down to just 7 (affordable) items.

As you can probably tell this is not a sponsored post since I am completely new to this, so all these opinions are 100% my own! Also, I hopefully won’t post too many materialistic posts but I love space themed stuff so much that I just really wanted to share the gifts I received with you!

1. Intergalactic Star Crown by Crown and Glory

I’m modelling this particular item (in colour-way Black Hole) below. I wore it to my Christmas party and it just felt like a true reflection of myself! Most of their range is handmade and so took 8-10 days to get shipped out. I would really recommend this for parties as, unlike most glitter coated items, the glitter didn’t come off and get everywhere! Top marks for that alone, as well as it being super cute.

It came with star sequins inside too!

 2. It’s about Space-Time Necklace by Eclectic Eccentricity

This necklace is AMAZING. I saw it and instantly fell in love with it. It went straight on my Amazon wishlist and I got it as a Christmas present. Eclectic Eccentricity currently do a whole selection of space related jewellery which is just stunning! (and on SALE).

3. Solar system in a Bottle by Little Planet Factory

My boyfriend got major brownie points for this one! This little bottle contains 3D prints of all the planets in our solar system AND a rogue Pluto. It’s just a really pretty and interesting little nonsense trinket – the one I have is not to scale as Jupiter would have been the size of a watermelon and the to-scale version is crazy small!

I see you, Pluto.

4. Space Dog Print Skirt by Lindy Bop

This was a super cute purchase.  It reminds me of concept art for The Jetsons. For those not familiar with 80’s cartoons it was a space-age themed show which wasn’t quite popular enough to make a 00’s comeback. I really rate Lindy Bop for their quality and it’s really nice to see they are branching out from vintage floral prints into more alternative prints!

 5. Intergalactic Bath Bomb by Lush

This has to be my favourite bath bomb of all time. Lush brought out SO much space-themed stuff for Christmas but Intergalactic came out on top. Of the 3 below, Intergalactic was the only one that wasn’t an exclusive for Christmas. The colours were just astounding as it fizzed away as you’d expect with a Lush item. However, it also left the bathwater looking like the night sky. I’ll be very sad if they ever discontinue this one. From left to right, Shoot for the Stars, Intergalactic and Northern Lights.

6. Lumpy Space Princess Brooch by DaisyBell Emporium

So I am a little biased on this one as it’s from a local handmade store in my hometown and I got featured on their Etsy after posting a picture on my Instagram. Lumpy Space Princess from Adventure Time is my spirit animal so I bought this brooch and you can just tell that it’s been made with love. It’s so lumping good!

So cute, Oh my Glob!

7. Moon Lamp by Fizz Creations

This is SO adorable and really affordable. It’s a full colour changing little lamp (about the size of a mango?) which is textured on the outside. The nicest touch was the footprint on the top, reminiscent of when we visited the moon’s surface. If I had to pick one flaw with this it’s that it takes 3 AA batteries and comes with none, but that’s just standard sometimes!

 
 

Hope this gave you some ideas for gifts (for yourself or for other people!)
What kind of space-related stuff do you love?

Until next time,

Amy
