Christmas is a holiday which makes me immediately think about gifts. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not thinking about the Christmas gifts that I would receive. I’m more concerned with finding the perfect Christmas gift for my near and dear ones. Of late I have noticed that a large number of people are hooked on to TV serials. Friends was one of the old fads that continues even in today’s day and age. A number of newer popular shows include Castle, Bones, The Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, The Blacklist and so much more.
The fascination however isn’t just with television series. Some fascinations extend even to movies. Star Wars and Star Trek are popular examples. Few people realize that this is a treasure chest of information when it comes to buying the perfect Christmas gift.
Not convinced? Well let me take you on a short journey through all the craziest ideas that you could come up with it. Trust me… If you find out just which series/movie your friend loves then finding a great Christmas gift is a walk in the park!
CHRISTMAS GIFTS: THE BIG BANG THEORY
I love this series and it isn’t only because there is a character in it that bears my name. I love the fact that I can listen to the same episode time and time again. It is a combination of wit and silliness. There are a number of people who are like me. They watch the Big bang theory and are extremely fascinated by it. Hence presents that relate to the story line make great Christmas gifts!
Bazinga! That’s a word that will put a smile on every Big Bang fan’s lips. The word itself became famous after Sheldon Cooper (a character in the series) used it after playing pranks on someone. In fact, today you will find that a lot of people have followed suit! The Bazinga cup serves as a great reminder of all the laughs that accompanied the catch phrase!
ROCK PAPER SCISSORS LIZARD SPOCK
Most of us have heard about the game ‘Rock Paper Scissors’. Lizard Spock is an addition that was added in one of the episodes of the Big Bang Theory. That’s how the game Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock became popular. I have personally never played it but that is because my small mind couldn’t process what Sheldon Cooper was saying. Then again my name is … Penny! So go figure!
I found this really cool t-shirt with the saying written on it. Comes in sizes from small to extra large. An added benefit is that it is cheap too! I just may get myself one this Christmas.
While we are on the subject of Big Bang related t-shirts I may as well share some rather cool ones that I found on Amazon which would great as Christmas gifts!
THE BAZINGA T-SHIRT: Because What Goes On A Glass Must Also Be On A T
So an ordinary Bazinga may not be good enough… That’s why it needs to glow in the dark!
THE WESLEY CRUSHERS: Sheldon And Wesley Never Did Get Along! SO CRUSH HIM WE MUST!
Anyway so you get the picture. There are a lot of t-shirts with Big Bang quotes on them. Sound overwhelming? Who can blame them? They are funny! But it is time to move on to other realms of Christmas gifts under the same section.
THE MINI ME MODELS
Remember the episode where Howard Wolowitz decided that he wanted a 3D printer to make a miniature version of himself. It didn’t help that Bernadette was really angry with the fact that he spent a load of money getting the 3D printer in the first place. Long story short, it turned out that he wasn’t the only one who wanted miniature versions of him and the other characters. The funky wacky wobbler set really took off after the episode.
In fact if your friend is really crazy about the Big Bang Theory then you can surprise them by putting the figures on their desk at work. I know that I would love it and so would many of my friends! It does rank high on my list of Big Bang related Christmas gifts! Hmmm… I wonder if anyone I know is reading this… Maybe I will get one for Christmas this year! Wink! Wink!
MIX TWO LOVES TOGETHER AND YOU HAVE PERFECTION
My husband loves Lego and he loves the Big Bang Series too. There is a perfect Christmas gift for people like him. It is the Lego Big Bang Theory set. What makes this set so special? You build up the room complete with furniture and the people to look like Sheldon’s apartment. It is the place that the characters spend most of their time and is a die hard favorite among all fans!
CHRISTMAS GIFTS: THE GAME OF THRONES
I must admit that I have not watched Game of Thrones. Yes! I can see the jaws drop open! I have never really gotten around to watching it but I am surrounded by a number of people who do. That being said it means that I need to keep an eye for Christmas gifts that I can give them. I did come across some really intriguing ones to say the least. Let’s take a look at them shall we?
WAIT… IS IT WINTER OR DINNER THAT IS COMING?
I’v heard the phrase ‘Winter is coming’ time and time again. It has been drilled in my head that it is part of the show. I found this really cute apron that plays on that saying but instead of saying ‘Winter is coming’ it says ‘Dinner is coming’. How cool is that? I just had to add it to my list of potential Christmas gifts. You can take a look at the picture on your left to see for yourself. Don’t you think it would make a great gift for someone who also loves to cook?
AND NOW YOU CAN DRINK BEER OUT OF THE SAME GROWLER
THE WAX SEALS
AND THE CUTTING BOARD SEALS THE DEAL: AFTER ALL WINTER IS COMING OR ISN’T IT?
CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THOSE WHO LOVE FRIENDS
Everyone loves Friends. Till date I haven’t come across someone who doesn’t. In fact, I know quite a few people who have actually watched all the seasons more than 5 times and they are still waiting for the day when they will have time to binge watch Friends again!
What makes Friends so memorable are all the laughs and yet everyone’s ability to relate with one of the characters. It is like a bit of us is represented within the script. That is what makes the series timeless. In fact a few quotes will just take us back to the episodes all over again. Like the ‘How you doin?‘. Remember who said that one? Of course you do! It has to be Joey! No one else could pull that style off!
Take a look at the quote t-shirt. Do you think you can place who said each and everyone of those quotes? I’m sure any Friends fanatic would love to try. That is what makes it such a perfect Christmas gift!
Remember the ‘Pivot’ scene? I found this crazy t-shirt which is perfect for someone who has a kid. It is really funny too. I mean… Well you got it didn’t you?
There are some times when you don’t want to go with the funky or crazy or cute. If classic is what you are after then I would steer you in the direction of the complete series of Friends. I what better way to celebrate their love for the series than by the whole collection?
