Best gift for a librarian: The Illustrated Librarian Temporary Tattoos, $12
With 12 non-toxic temporary tattoos, your book-fanatic friends and family can now boast slogans like "Literate 4 Life," "Read or Die," and of course, "Book Lust." Nothing says both “extreme” and “refined” like the words "Born to Read" emblazoned on your arm!
Best gift for a TMZ.com reader: Mr. Bean Bobble Head, $12-$17
There are only so many panty flashings, racist outbursts, and offensive hand gestures you can take. So, why not give the gift of Bean? This colorful figure looks exactly like Rowan Atkinson's popular character and comes complete with details like his teddy bear or green Mini. It's vaguely wholesome, too, which makes it a great antidote to a wardrobe malfunction!
Best gift for your jokester uncle: Cursin' Swear Bear Talking Plush, $18
This adorable little brown bear is for ages 18 and up. He measures a mere 6 1/2-inches tall but has the dirty mouth of a sailor 10 times his size! Give him a hug and you’ll hear such nuggets of wisdom as "Nobody loves you, everybody hates you, go **** yourself!" He’s guaranteed to be funny and foul! (Also available in classic, birthday, boob-job, and redneck varieties.)
Best gift for your movie-quoting hipster friends: Pulp Fiction Bad Mother ****** Wallet, $15

Best gift for a blogger: Plush Cthulhu, $13-$80
Bloggers are a smart bunch. They know news, they know art, and they know creepy creatures! Between postings about the search for Bigfoot, it's comforting to know that the early 20th century demon Cthulhu is there to give them a big, tentacle-filled hug. Available as plush toys, pillows, and even wreaths, this extraordinary character from H.P. Lovecraft has a great deal to offer any smarty-pants who needs a hair-raising cuddle.
Best gift for Ryan Seacrest: Star Wars Darth Vader Golf Club Cover, $25
While we've never met the man, Ryan seems like a busy guy who already has everything he could desire. So, you should probably just buy him something that you yourself would want… like this item. We assume that Ryan plays golf, and you most certainly like Darth Vader. That makes this plush driver cover just the thing! Also, it's cheap. That’s good because Ryan can buy himself a really expensive gift, and why should you spend your money on him, anyway?
Best gift for the MIT grad in your tech department who probably doesn't buy himself a lot of fun stuff: Namco Ms. Pac-Man Plug and Play TV Game, $30
Video game consoles are very expensive, but this cool joystick plugs right into your TV and includes 5 timeless arcade games! Everybody loves to have fun, and this item provides hours of entertainment in the form of Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Xevious, and other fan-favorites in a compact little unit for around $30.
Best gift for your cousin who is violently opposed to the very idea of clowns: Bozo the Clown 46-Inch Bop Bag, $15
It's massive and it's going to get a lot of abuse. This inflatable clown blows up in a jiffy and will withstand all the beatings your cousin can heap on it. With a sand-filled base helping it return to the upright, this punchable clown is sure to absorb all those feelings of unrestrained rage. This will undoubtedly help save the comedians, mimes, and other entertainers in your town from assault by your crazy kin.

Finding something really unusual to surprise an Internet-savvy anime fan is no small challenge, but this one-of-a-kind Witchblade statue has a certain special feature that will grab the attention of any gift recipient over the age of 18. She has soft, pliable plastic breasts. Yes, really. If that doesn’t garner you a hearty “Wow, what a great gift!”… nothing will!
Best gift for Britney Spears: Voltron Lion Die-Cast Masterpiece Figure, $150
She's had a tough year, so you want to give your favorite pop princess something that can help her get her life back together again. If there's anybody who knows about getting things back together, it's Voltron: 5 die-cast metal lions that combine into 1 mighty force! It's not a force in music but hey, it's the symbolism that counts.
Best revenge gift for your sibling’s children: Squawkers McCaw Animatronic Parrot, $80

Best gift for your friend who likes to quote old cartoon episodes: EE Exclusive Star Wars Family Guy Darth Stewie Character Key, $30
Like a slice of cartoon history, this work of art features an animation cell replica with a nicely painted background.

Music fans will love McFarlane Toys' Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora action figures. Each 6-inch scale character is posed singing or playing the guitar, ready to rock out on stage. They look incredibly realistic, but they stand a little shorter than in real life and have about 14% less sex appeal.
