I know, I know, Part II should be Games… but you can find recommended games anywhere you look, take a glance at the posts that came before this one and you’ll get some decent choices.
This part of the guide is dedicated to folks looking to pick up some unique gifts for their friends and loved ones.
Super Mario Collector’s Edition Chess Set.
If I walked into a friend’s house and saw this on a table I’d drop whatever I was doing and propose a game. Filled with your favorite Mario Bros characters and packed in a wicked collector’s tin, this chess set will have you sacrificing Peach and putting Bowser in check in no time.
a320 Pocket Retro Game Emulator
$99.99 and SO worth it.
This little gem can satisfy all of your retro gaming needs. Stuck on a plane for hours this holiday season? Bring the a320 with you and get your gaming fix by playing any GBA, NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, or Neo Geo roms that you might have. The a320 has 4GB of storage space and will take a mini SD card if you really need the extra space. The a320 will also play movie files, audio files, view jpg images, Read E-books, and even has a built in FM radio.
This is the kind of gift that will make any gamer very very happy, it’s for this reason that the a320 is my top pick for gifts this holiday season.
Light Up Marcus Fenix Series 2
Neca (National Entertainment Collectibles Association) continues to amaze with this 12-inch Marcus Fenix figure (based off of Gears of War 2), this incredibly detailed figure has LEDs on all the places you’d expect, comes with a COG pistol and Lancer, and would make a fine addition to any gamer’s collection.
Red Shirt Star Trek Cologne
So the away team heading for the local bar includes Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and You… Guess which one isn’t making it back. If you’re going to get suffocated Tribbles or randomly attacked by a Mugato, you might as well go out smelling good. This Star Trek branded cologne will have you smelling and feeling like a genuine Redshirt in no time, just remember to avoid getting separated from the main cast.
Health and Mana Energy Potions
$19.99 for six 1.69oz bottles
So your boss just hit you with another TPS report request and you’re down to your last bit of energy, what to do? Suddenly you remember that you’ve got a health potion tucked away for just such an occasion. A pop of the top and the red life-giving liquid is already working on getting you pack to fighting condition. These tiny energy shots are packaged in the all too familiar guise of health and mana potions, each one contains 160mg of caffeine and provides 5-8 hours of energy with no crash.
Most of these gifts can actually be found on Http://ThinkGeek.com which everyone should check out, I’ve spent more money there than I’d really like to admit and have enjoyed every second of every product I’ve bought.
Hope this has made shopping a little bit easier.
Good Luck & Have Fun.
