15 Gifts for Your Favorite TV Lover

So I might be a little late, but I've compiled a list of gifts that would make any TV lover jump for joy this holiday season (or for a birthday if you don't want to pay for express shipping...my bad). Also, I apologize in advance for the fact that the hyperlinks NEVER work on this site, but I've included the websites where you can find these items. Just search by item name.

1. "How I Met Your Mother" - Bro Code Audio Book $19.98
Who doesn't bust a gut listening to Neil Patrick Harris as womanizer Barney Stinson spout his ridiculous rules of life known as The Bro Code? Now, you can be educated while riding in the car cruising for chicks or running in the park trolling for hotties. Living by this code will change your life. Granted, you might end up sad and alone by next Christmas, but you'll be just as cool as Barney. *Suit required*

2. "NCIS" - Bert the Farting Hippo $45
As any "NCIS" fan knows, forensic wizard Abby Sciuto gets through those tough nights in the lab (including the ones where people are trying to kill her) by snuggling up with her trusty Sub Saharan sidekick Bert. This flatulent friend is not only cute but he has a lot to say. Just hug him and find out.

3. "Dexter" - Ice Truck Killer Thumb Drive $39.95
Remember season one? You know, the one with the chopped up body parts. No not the current season, the other one. This Thumb drive will freak out your friends and co-workers and who doesn't want to do that?

4. "Bored to Death" - Binoculars $14.99
If you know someone that wants to be a private dick or just has some stalkery tendencies that you'd like to foster, these are essential. Where would the fictional Jonathan Ames be if he didn't have his peeping tom glasses? Probably passed out from a whole lot of Mary Jane and Chardonnay.

5. "True Blood" Pint Set - $39.95
Who hasn't watched "True Blood" and though, "Damn, I'm thirsty"? Well now, whether you're drinking lager, cola or AB+, you've got the perfect vessel. Bottoms up!

6. "How To Make It In America" T-Shirt - $24.99
If you've lived in NYC, but don't any more, this show makes you so homesick that you want to wear the clothes the fictional fashion company produces. They are pretty cool, so it's not like you'd look like an idiot. Wish they had the Crisp hoodie, but this tee will do.

7. "Psych" Pineapple Cookie Jar - $39.99
What kind of cookies do you think Gus keeps in his cookie jar? My guess is thin mints...or pinwheels. No, you're right. Oreos it is. I think this is a pretty cute jar for those who know and a conversation starter when you have guests that have never heard of the show. Don't fill it up, but offer cookies, the jar takes care of the punch line for you.

8. "The Walking Dead" Daryl Dixon Action Figure - $16.99
Yes, that's right. You can now own a mini plastic, ripped Daryl Dixon. Figure comes complete with signature crossbow and string of squirrels. The only thing that would make it better would be a zombie ear necklace. If Daryl isn't your cup of tea (what's wrong with you?!), you can choose from most other members of our merry band of survivors. Ideally, get the entire cast and re-enact scenes from your favorite episodes. On that note, don't bother me in January. I'm busy.

9. "Awkward" Jenna Lives/In Tribute Tee - $25
If you watch the best show MTV has ever made, then you don't really need any explanation. If you don't watch, you should. And then you'll want a Jenna Lives t-shirt. Plus, it's got my name on it. Buy it. Wear it.

10. "Revenge" Infinity Box - $24.99
Ok, so I'm teetering on whether or not to drop this show. Regardless, this is a pretty box. You don't have to be hell bent on revenge for your father whose business associates framed him for a terrorist attack to have this box. Or you can. It's up to you. This is actually a really good gift because you can give it to someone that doesn't watch, but if you give it to a fan, they may feel the need to seek vengeance for something awful that's happened to you. Gift carefully.

11. "PanAm" Carry On Bag - $89
You too can be as fashionable as the worldly stewardesses of PanAm. Disclaimer: Carrying this bag does not mean that you will travel the world for free, get to meet the president, or be recruited to the CIA. It does however mean that you will look super cute and retro (in that stylish '60s way, not a dirty '70s way). Start packing...

12. "Bones" Booth's Cocky Belt Buckle - $29
What is the first thing you notice about Seeley Booth? No, not his dreamy eyes...or his sparkling smile...or his great head of hair. Look lower. It's his signature cocky belt buckle. If there's a man in your life that must conform for his career but really wants to rebel, this is a must have. Who knows, maybe you can find some matching socks.

13. "Sons of Anarchy" What Would Gemma Do? Billfold Case - $24.95
I find myself asking that exact question more than you'd think. If you're a badass or a badass biker mama wannabe, this might just be the accessory for your spikey leather handbag. It's great for carrying business cards, cigarettes and razor blades. You just never know.

14. "Inbetweeners" Briefcase Wanker Laptop Skin - $24.50
Let's face it. We've all got a little briefcase wanker in us. Maybe you're more of Neil. Either way, if you love this raunchy British teen comedy as much I do, there's no better way to pay homage than with this skin. Or check out the Friends! (thumbs up) t-shirts and iPod skins.

15. "Parks & Rec" Ron Swanson Cookie Gift Box - $30
This may be the most amazing edible gift I've ever seen. I don't even know what to say. I'm speechless. Just order.

Feel free to add your suggestions.

Happy Holidays!
