The holiday season is now upon us, and along with it comes the stresses of finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones. We are no strangers to the struggles of holiday shopping, so the Nerds staff is here to help.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, the Nerds & Beyond staff is sharing gift ideas inspired by our favorite fandoms.
Based on the 2014 mockumentary of the same name, the FX original series What We Do In The Shadows gives a comedic look into the nightly lives of four vampires who have lived together for 100 years. Now, the vampire roommates live in Staten Island with hopes of taking over the United States while adjusting to modern life. With season 3 recently ending and the show already renewed for season 4, this is the perfect time for us to share some of our favorite shadows family gift ideas.
