No, this isn't like Oprah's favorite things. Keep your shorts dry. If you're a guy, this is a link to send your wife or girlfriend or sister or mom or Sailor Moon cosplay partner (or just for yourself), so they can pick you out a sweet arse gift for the holidays. This is a public service and some shit stuff that I also happen to like, some of it already endorsed on this site, some of it new, some for which we've negotiated a discount for our readers. And, remember, shopping from your own home is the greatest gift of all.
Xbox Kinect Sensor. Okay, I'll be the first to admit when I saw this video gesture-response controller I was thinking we're only about a couple years away from me having pretty lifelike sexy time with the virtual celebrity of my choice, but it's also quite the sweet experience for sports gamers. This may be sold out very soon for Christmas, so click, don't walk.
Avatar (Three-Disc Extended Collector's Edition, Blue-Ray). Okay, my secret fanboy status is exposed, but this movie kicked serious butt on the visual level. Perhaps, greatest ever movie effects. Plus, Zoe Saldana all blue and making the sexy. A must have in the dude collection.
Sumo Lounge Bean Bag Chairs. We have these bad boys all around the Egotastic! offices and we effin' love them. Gretchen and all six of her finger on her right hand are raised here swearing that chicks dig dudes with big bean bags. (Note: enter promo code: SumoEgotastic632 for $5 off for Egotastic! readers through December 17.)
Mr. Skin Special Christmas Offer. We hard bargained Mr. Skin, the encyclopedic master of film and TV nude scenes, to build a special Christmas deal for Egotastic! readers only. You get $20 off their lowest annual subscription price plus a free DVD Guide book ($20 value) autographed by Mr. Skin himself! It's an amazing Christmas gift for the man in your life (or, your own damn self!)
World of Warcraft Cataclysm. Geeks and gamers unite. WoW Cataclysm is unleashing all types of havoc and destruction upon Azertoth. If you still love chocolate milk, bunk beds, and think pet lizards make you look cool to chicks, this is definitely for you.
AC/DC Live at Donington DVD. Do you know an AC/DC fan? Are you one yourself? Why the eff not? Well, if you're like me, and you've experienced Angus Young going insane live, then you will completely dig this Live at Donington classic concert DVD from their 1992 concert. Amazing live musical performance.
Books, yes, books. They're not expensive and make awesome gifts.
Adam Carolla: In Fifty Years We'll All Be Chicks. I'm a big Adam Carolla fan. If you are too, you'll super dig his whiny, complaining book about how much it sucks to be a middle aged white dude. The truly oppressed class has something to say about the world trying to rob it of its manhood. I guarantee laughs.
Columbus, A Silver Bear Thriller. Have you finished Silver Bear yet? The hitman novel I recommended a ways back. Well Columbus is the sequel. I always say, every man needs a good book in the bathroom, and this is that book. Guns and murder are the ideal recipe for crapper-time joy. Trust.
They Call Me Baba Booey. The autobiography of Howard Stern forever producer and behind the scenes man, Gary Dell'Abate. It's funny and sad and a great gift for any Howard Stern fan, of which you can include me in the group. I'm buying this for my Uncle Charlie, who was rendered mute for two months at the site of seeing his grandmother naked as a child.
