Now for my Nerdmas wish list/Geek holiday gift guide I decided (for no real determinable reason) to stick to the confines of the Internets biggest swap meet. Yes what follows is a list of the finest gift ideas eBay has to suit the needs of the nerdy. I will warn you it can be a bit pricey in places, but I figure out of the the thousands of you out there, a couple of you have to be dot-com millionaires or billionaire orphans with piles of f-you money. I would also like to remind the extremely wealthy out there that giving is the true meaning of the season and you are more than welcome to give any (or all) of these to me.

Thank you and lets begin.

The elusive and hard to find Murray Christmas T-Shirt, the perfect holiday piece of clothing. The Chive had these available for about 28 minutes before all but the size smalls sold out. For us non-hobbits it looks like there are a few up on eBay for around $50 bucks.

1. Ultimate Kate or Die #1 by Kate Leth

Tattoos, relationships, lesbians and guinea pigs. What does all of this have to do with comics? Everything, that’s what. This collection of comic strips from Nova Scotia artist Kate Leth is on sale now for a steal at $5 a pop, and it’s well worth the price. Featuring strips on everything from cosplay and tattoo etiquette, to the secret relationship between Spider-Man and Deadpool, it’s 32 pages of fun wrapped up in one neat, shelf fitting package. Although, if you live in the Halifax area, just go over to Strange Adventures Comix & Curiosities, they’re always holding a few issues just in case and you might even meet Kate.

I am desperate for a subscription to Loot Crate.  For about $20 a month (including shipping), a box of geek swag is delivered to your door filled with sample and full size products. This is a riff on the girly BirchBox and the dog-loving BarkBox (which I recommend, btw). Getting this would be like a having a mini-Nerdmas every month!

As nerds, we like to put a twist on almost everything. Which is why, sure, a frying pan is something every kitchen shouldn’t be without, but frying pans are boring. You need a set of pots and pans with sword hilts! Combat Kitchenware is a Kickstarter campaign and they’re goal has already been surpassed. You can still get a variety of pan sizes through donating either $27 for a handle kit to craft your own up to a $275 donation which would get you a customized handle on your pan.

Now hear this! I am taking back this holiday gift guide in the name of Hannukah! For too long the Festival of Lights has lived in the shadows of other December based holidays. Even Festivus, that ironic sitcom born hipster holiday, feels more celebrated than the eight crazy nights of oil and flame and socks from grandma.

So this year, I am leading the charge to win the war for Hannukah! No longer will we be relegated to endcaps and afterthoughts on holiday lists. This time, we’re taking front and center with these 8 Amazing Hannukah gifts (that you can also buy people for Christmas or whatever else you buy gifts for)!

Night Number One: Give the gift of this awesome Evil League of Evil Shirt and show your team spirit. The shirt is available in 4 different colors in sizes S-2XL and as a baby doll tee as well from T Shirt Laundry. You can buy this splendid gift for $18.00. Check it out here.

Speaking of Christmas, although that’s what this whole column – and yes – series of columns are about, let’s turn to something more of the Christmas toy persuasion. Now I’m a recent convert to Community, and because we’ve had to go upwards of seven months now without a new episode, you can relive the glory days with this set up figurines based on the 2010 Claymation-inspired Christmas special. And bonus, the NBC store now has them on for half price. Price: $49.99 from $99.65 [NBCUniversal Store]
