Buying gifts for TV lovers can be tricky, especially if you don’t know what shows they like. Luckily, we have an awesome gift guide that’s going to help you get that TV lover you love the perfect Christmas present. So, if you’re not into getting a complete DVD series (though we have a few of those too) this year, that’s fine, we have some cool alternatives.
Note: Most of these gifts are on Amazon, so you totally still have a lot of time to get them before Christmas Day. And chances are you can also find most of these at a Target, Barnes & Noble or even Wal-Mart. The rest of these you’ll probably have to pay extra for fast shipping, but that’s totally up to you and your gift-giving budget. Good luck!

It comes complete with 275 game cards, 6 movers and a rule book to get things started off right.
1. Breaking Bad: The Complete Series
The Complete Series Collector’s Set
One of the best TV series ever ended this year, and while that’s a damn shame, the box set is absolutely fantastic. Yes, box sets can be pricey, but if this is in your budget, then consider this – the Breaking Bad: Complete Series Collector’s set includes all five seasons packaged in a replica money barrel, a two-hour documentary on the making of the final series, a Los Pollos Hermanos apron, a 16-page booklet written by series creator Vince Gilligan and a “challenge coin,” whatever that is. And if this is just too pricey for you, then go with the pillows. They’re not looking that expensive after all are they?
And of course, if none of these work for you, there’s always the wonderful gift of Netflix.
