Alright, so you’ve already found the perfect gifts for the movie lovers in your life. But what about those who spend Friday nights catching up on TiVo or Hulu? You can always buy them them a complete season of their favorite TV show on Blu-Ray, or a T-Shirt of their most-beloved TV character. It’s not too hard once you think about it, but just in case you’re all out of ideas, here’s some help. Check out our Christmas Gift Guide for TV Lovers.
10. For The Girls
Girls: The Complete First Season
With the exception of Homeland and The Walking Dead, the most talked about TV show on the web was probably Lena Dunham‘s Girls. Everyone was buzzing with excitement before the show’s premiere. Critics were praising it for its honesty and fearlessness. And then immediately after it premiered, the backlashes began (and they didn’t stop). The second season of Girls is coming January 13, but why not buy the complete first season for someone who totally can’t get enough of the show? The Blu-ray/DVD includes a conversation with the actresses, Dunham and Judd Apatow, commentaries and other fun stuff.
9. For The Pop Culture Zealot
Mad Men: Zou Bisou Red Vinyl
One of most memorable moments of the fifth season of Mad Men was Megan Draper’s wild and weird rendition of the French song “Zou Bisou, Bisou” during Don’s surprise birthday party. Jessica Paré‘s version was a big hit on iTunes, and is now available on Vinyl. This will make a great gift for any hipster who is a fan of the show.
8. For The Comedy Junkie
Steve Martin: The Television Stuff
Steve Martin has been around for a long time. He’s a super-duper famous actor now, but he got his start doing stand-up at nightclubs like most comedians. The Television Stuff box set is a great gift for anyone who is a fan of his. The DVD set includes some of his early stand-up acts from the 60s to mid-2000, NBC specials, a collection of TV guest appearances, speeches and music videos.
7. For Your Drunk Uncle
Game of Thrones House Lannister Flask
Got an uncle who’s a big drinker and also a devoted Game of Thrones fan? Make him happy with this badass House Lannister Flask. If he’s not really into incest and evil kings, there’s also flasks for House Stark fans, and House Targaryen fans.
6. For The Best Person On Earth
Community Holiday Exclusive Set
Community and its fans have been through a lot this year. Between the Chevy Chase incidents, Dan Harmon getting fired as showrunner, and NBC yanking the show from its fall schedule, it’s a surprise (and miracle) we’re getting another season at all. There are tons of great gifts out there for Community fans, but here’s a whole set of neat things. The gift includes: a Troy and Abed mug and poster, an 8-bit logo T-shirt and a Human Being plush.
5. For The Gleek
Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 3
Don’t waste your time trying to understand Gleeks. They love the show. End of story. There’s nothing you can do about it. (They could like be into more terrible things like The Jersey Shore or Gallery Girls, so be grateful.) Karaoke Revolution Glee gives fans the chance to sing along with cast.
4. For Those Who Love Baking Shows
Babycakes Cupcake Maker
Last time we checked there were three TV shows exclusively devoted to cupcakes. If you know someone who loves watching The Cupcakes Girls, DC Cupcakes and/or Cupcake Wars (or baking shows in general), tell ‘em to put that knowledge to good use with the Babycakes Cupcake Maker. Maybe as a thank you to you, they’ll bake you some delicious cupcakes.
3. For Those Who Can’t Get Enough Of The Bluths
Arrested Development: The Complete Series
Who would’ve thought that six years after its cancellation, we would be getting more episodes (and a movie) of Arrested Development? The pleads worked somehow. Anyway, we know Netflix offers the complete series online, but it’s always nice to have something tangible to hold on to… just in case the Internet explodes or something. Plus, the DVD includes extra stuff that isn’t available online.
2. For The Breaking Bad Fan
Breaking Bad Heisenberg T-Shirt
The second half of the fifth season of Breaking Bad returns next summer. That’s a long time from now, especially for a fan of the show. While they wait for the end of the series, why not get your Heisenberg fan a tee? This T-shirt is perfect for hipsters, male and female.
1. For The Guys
Entourage: The Complete Series
Got a guy who’s missing his Entourage? Get him the series and let him relive the whole thing over and over and over again. The set includes all eight seasons of the show.
