Since Shut and Take My Yen have soo many products on their website for every type of geek/nerd/weeaboo/otaku out there that I thought I may as well do a series of ‘Geek Gift Idea’ articles until the 10th of December since I’m surely that’ll be the cut off point for buying overseas!! Shut Up and Take My Yen has soo many products online I can’t put them all in one article so I’ve broken it down to 4. Fourth and final part will be coming soon.
Shut Up and Take my Yen is a free online magazine which is run by Weeaboo’s for Weeaboo’s. While they’re not watching anime they display and sell the best of anime, gaming Japanese related merchandise. Many items listed on the site return a small commission for referral (Etsy, Amazon, etc). They will post anything and everything and they post some really cute stuff too!! They also take requests for getting your products you think belong there on their website.
Super Saiyan God Heat Mug
A must-have for that die hard Dragon Ball Z fan and coffee lover. A cup is an easy yet reliable gift to get a person during the Christmas period. A cup to resemble their taste whether it being a film/anime/artist shows if you’ve put thought into that mug gift of yours!! Once hot liquid is poured inside, this heat reactive mug will change Goku into his new transformation.
I love Yu Gi Oh and I do love Monopoly and Christmas is that time of year when you do tend to play boardgames with your close loved ones and then never play them ever again!! There are so many different monopolies to be had it’s hard to pick the right one but if you or any other family member likes Yu Gi then I’ve found the perfect Monopoly for you!! Send those who are out to financially crush you to the Shadow Realm! Choose your favorite Millennium token and travel around the board collecting and trading Duel Monsters. To defeat your opponent you’ll have to own the strongest team!
