Life Size Walking Dead Teddy Bear Girl

What do you get for the zombie fan who has pretty much everything? How about a life-sized replica of a zombie girl from The Walking Dead that roams around your house, bumping into things and moans? We have fun with a lot of the items we review for the guide, but this zombie girl is pretty much the best thing ever! Not only is she a great replica of one of the very first walkers that Rick Grimes encounters in the pilot episode of The Walking Dead, but she looks creepy as hell and really does move around your home on a roomba style base, moaning and bumping into things. You already know which one of your friends this is meant for.

Death Star Wars Tea Infuser

Got any friends who are huge Star Wars fans and tea drinkers? This is a great stocking stuffer or gift for them. The ball is s simplified version of the Death star and the chain has a very cool looking metal tie fighter on the end. I will be using mind a lot in the future for whenever I drink loose tea. Another great benefit is that it is dishwasher safe, so clean up is a cinch. Great gift!

C2f Ferro Liquid

Because of its size, we really like the Ferrofluid magnetic display as a stocking stuffer. This little guy will drain every ounce of productivity from you as you take the magnets and move the fluid around in the bottle. It is addicting. There’s something about taking a liquid and making it go all spikey and awesome. It is kind of like you’ve got a little chunk of alien symbiote in a jar.

Kinekt Designs Gear Ring

This is still one of the hands down, coolest pieces of Jewelry that we’ve seen. We first featured this ring back in 2010, but they’ve tweaked the design to make the gears slide even easier now. This is the perfect gift for people who love puzzle rings and things like that that have moving parts. These stainless steel rings actually have moving gears in them that can be rotated while on your finger. Each ring is handmade and its available in sizes from 5 - 20. It’s a great all around gift and an excellent accessory for that person in your life who always needs something to fidget with.

Evr1 DRD4-7R ADVENTURE KIT

You’ll see Evr1 in a couple of places in the guide this year, as their product is more of an idea tucked inside a product. What is it? Think of it as a digital talisman. This one is a high quality, leather keychain with a tiny SD card hidden inside that contains the general sum of human knowledge. Basically, it has everything you need to start a new civilization from great works of literary art, a complete religion and philosophy library, to medical, agricultural, and civil engineering manuals. While we showed off the leather keychain in the stocking stuffer section, this version is for people who not only want the knowledge, but also some of the tools you’ll need to strike out on your own. The DRD4-7R Adventure Kit comes packed with The Leatherman 420HC Stainless steel Sidekick Multitool, The Coghlan 6-in-1 tool, The Carson 6×18 field monocular, and 22 ft. of 550 lb. test, military paracord.

Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions

Guillermo Del Toro is one of our favorite directors. From his work on mainstream films like Hellboy and Pacific Rim to his own more artistic creations like Pan’s Labyrinth, he has captured the imaginations of his fans like few can. This book is something that is hard to buy as a gift because you’ll want to keep it for yourself. Inside the hard cover are a collection of Del Toro’s notes, sketches, and ideas for all his popular projects and several that have never seen the light of day. If you have someone who is a Del Toro fan, I’d suggest that this could be the perfect gift, but there’s a chance they might have already bought it for themself!
