Not sure what to get that special film & TV nerd on your list? You know who we're talking about: That friend/relative/coworker/significant other who's perennially geeking out about the latest episode of "Game of Thrones," spouting unsolicited bits of wisdom from "Star Trek" or throwing the term "Bazinga!" around without abandon.
Well, you're in luck, because there's a cornucopia of nerdalicious swag hitting the stores just in time for the holiday season. This year, we think we've seen more nerd-pleasing fare than ever before. From a sweet "Dr. Who" limited edition gift set to a book of "Star Wars" origami (yes -- "Star Wars" origami!), we've narrowed down a list of the top 12 most coveted gifts for the film and TV geeks who have it all.
1. "Star Wars" Origami
Even the most diehard "Star Wars" collectors probably don't have this amazing book of <a href="http://www.starwarsorigami.com/">"Star Wars" Origami</a> yet. The meticulously crafted book shows readers how they can make their own starfighters, Death Stars, Darth Vaders and much, much more out of a simple sheet of paper. Nerdgasm!
2. "Game Of Thrones": Season 1 Set
Did we mention it comes with a Dragon Egg paperweight? It doesn't get much more awesome than that. Or does it? <a href="http://www.amazon.ca/Game-Thrones-Complete-Collectors-Edition/dp/B008K8X0IS">This weighty collection</a> includes a ton of fascinating bonus features, including an interactive Guide to Westeros, character profiles, a rundown of The Night's Watch, a look at how the Dothraki language was created and even never-before-seen content that's marked by ... wait for it ...hidden Dragon Eggs!
3. "The Hobbit": Moleskine Notebook
There are four notebooks to choose from in <a href="http://www.moleskineus.com/mb7962-moleskine-hobbit-limited-edition-pocket-ruled-notebook.html">this exclusive collection</a> that coincides with the theatrical release of Peter Jackson's much-anticipated take on "The Hobbit." All of the notebooks are pimped out with an inscription of JRR Tolkien's "JRRT" monogram on the spine, and, best of all, a secret back pocket housing a map of Wilderland!
4. "Big Bang Theory": Bazinga! T-Shirt
Now this is a gift that will appeal to TV nerds and, well, regular ol' nerds alike. It immortalizes the <a href="http://www.cbsstore.com/the-big-bang-theory-bazinga-t-shirt/detail.php?p=260041">deliciously geeky catchphrase</a> of "The Big Bang Theory"'s Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), who frequently shouts it out after driving home a point or when someone falls for a practical joke.
5. "Dark Shadows": The Visual Companion
All self-respecting cinephiles are fascinated by Tim Burton, and this <a href="http://titanbooks.com/dark-shadows-the-visual-companion-6469/">visually stunning book</a> gives an inside peek at how he operates. It chronicles how Burton brought the classic Gothic soap opera to life on the big screen, and is packed with concept drawings, production designs, interviews and never-before-seen photos from the set. It has some great shots of Burton, Johnny Depp, Eva Green, Helena Bonham Carter and Michelle Pfeiffer.
6. Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years
<a href="http://www.amazon.ca/Star-Trek-Federation-First-Years/dp/1612184170">This illustration-rich book</a> is packaged on a super-cool looking pedestal display -- with lights! -- and includes an audio intro by Admiral Hikaru Sulu (George Takei). Need we say more? If you still require more convincing, the volume meticulously chronicles everything from the first contact with the Vulcan in 2063 to the Romulan War of 2156 to the first 150 years of the intergalactic democracy.
7. "The Walking Dead": Daryl Dixon
If you don't watch "The Walking Dead" but are shopping for a mega-fan, know this: Daryl is the best. That's why <a href="http://www.amazon.com/McFarlane-Toys-Walking-Dead-Series/dp/B004NQZX7W">his action figure</a> appears to be pricier than less-coveted characters like Rick Grimes and Shane Walsh. After Daryl, the Michonne action figures are a pretty safe bet to please "Walking Dead" fans, too -- especially the models that come with her badass sword.
8. The Making of "Life of Pi"
If you've read "Life of Pi," you're probably wondering how director Ang Lee could possibly bring it to life on the big screen. Well, <a href="http://www.harpercollins.ca/books/Making-Life-Pi-Jean-Christophe-Castelli/?isbn=9780062114136">this book gives readers an inside look</a> at how he went about doing just that. It features over 275 stunning images, including production art, storyboards, sketches, stills and never-before-seen content. It also includes an intro and extensive interviews with Lee, and a ton of fun facts about the film's special effects.
9. "Deadwood": Bella Union Saloon Sign
If you have a "Deadwood" fan on your list -- particularly a "Deadwood" fan with a basement bar -- this <a href="http://store.hbo.com/deadwood-bella-union-saloon-wood-sign/detail.php?p=301361&v=hbo_gift-finder_our-top-picks_collectibles">old-timey sign</a> is a slam-dunk. Who wouldn't want to channel their inner Cy Tolliver (Powers Boothe) and pay homage to the classiest watering hole in town? Ladies of the night not included.
10. Coen Brothers Collection Blu-ray Set
Movie buffs will be panting over <a href="http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00553K8FY/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=485327511&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0041T52QI&pf_rd_m=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&pf_rd_r=1AWPWZ4WTSGBVMNZX356">this unique collection</a>, which includes cult classics "Fargo" and "Raising Arizona," as well as two lesser-known early works by the Coens, "Miller's Crossing" and "Blood Simple." Bonus points for the neat-o cover art featuring the movie tiles mapped out in a brain (to illustrate that they're "from the minds of the Coen Brothers").
11. "Dr. Who": Limited Edition Gift Set
As if the 70+ hours of "Dr. Who" wasn't enough, <a href="http://www.bbcamericashop.com/dvd/doctor-who-limited-edition-giftset-16924.html">this beautiful set</a> also includes a collectible 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver and the comic book, "Dr. Who At Comic-Con." The collection encompasses Seasons 1 - 6 featuring the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors, plus hours of cool bonus features like three new "Doctor" specials that haven't been released on DVD before.
12. "TDKR" Bat Cowl Blu-ray Pack
There are a lot of "Dark Knight Rises"-related releases leading up to the holidays this year, but you just need to take a look <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B009K45Y62/panandscathed-20">at this one's packaging</a> to know it will impress your nerd the most. Why? Because it comes with a limited edition broken bat cowl. Look at the picture. See how cool it looks? 'Nuff said.
