Have a Merry Phone-Charging Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Merry Charger You probably won’t have much use for this when the holidays are over, but it’s awesome while the season lasts, anyway. The Merry Charger is a cable that doubles as a string of Christmas lights, making the mere act of charging your smartphone into something more festive than it actually is. Plug it into a charger, laptop, or power bank and watch the lights shine and twinkle while your device powers up.

You can still plug it in for the lights even when you don’t need to charge anything anymore. The Merry Charger is available online for $20.

When people talk about Christmas sweaters,”ugly” isn’t too far off. However, these particular ones designed by artist Drew Wise are anything but ugly. They’ll probably even appeal to the non-geeky folks who don’t get what’s being references in the designs: Guardians of the Galaxy featuring none other than the four guardians and the scene in the beginning when Peter gets abducted; Star Wars featuring R2D2, Darth Vader, lots of Stormtroopers, and the Death Star; and Doctor Who featuring otherworldly creatures, the Doctor, and of course, TARDIS.

Hit the break to check out the rest of the designs and the actual sweaters.

Blown Glass Solar System Christmas Tree Ornament Set

planet-christmas-tree-ornaments

Last time we spoke of planetary glassware, it was for the Solar System Glass Set and you guys seemed to love it. Well today you’re looking at a set of blown glass tree ornaments featuring 9 planets and the Sun. Yes, 9 planets, which means Pluto once again made it! But as cool as this set is, there’s some bad news. First off, it’ll take 3 to 5 weeks to ship, which means you probably can’t get it in time for Christmas. And on top of that, the thing is $375! So yeah, that’s out of budget for most people.

Still, if you’ve got too much disposable income and like to plan things way, way, way ahead of time, you can always get these for next year.
