A geek chic new bag for Sheldon Cooper ... gadgets to help busy working mom Alicia Florrick be more productive and less sleepy ... all things bacon for Ron Swanson ... Here's our list of holiday gift suggestions for some of your favorite fictional TV types, with the hopes that they might spark gift ideas for the real characters in your life.
Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons), "The Big Bang Theory"
Ultraconfident supergeek Sheldon loves his gadgets, his T-shirts, his pop culture, and his academic pursuits, and we have just the gifts that will become his new favorites.
He may not be into fashion labels, but Sheldon will appreciate the cool, tech-friendly style and utility of the Tumi T-Tech Forge Fairview Messenger, which he can use to carry his comic books, research materials, and his new subscription to Mental Floss magazine, the mag for people who love "random, interesting, amazing facts."
On his back: a selection of new tees from 80sTees.com, including a Periodic Table of Superheroes shirt, a Uninforms DC Comics tee, and a Head Gear Marvel Comics shirt. And a Caped Superman mug will be the perfect thing to hold the Strawberry Quik he loves so much.
Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), "The Good Wife"
What to get for the high-powered, busy, elegant supermom? Gifts that will make her life better and easier, of course.
A few ideas: the SleepTracker Elite device, which tracks your sleep patterns and is 95 percent as accurate as a sleep clinic test, to make sure mom's sleep is leaving her in top shape to tackle her days. Think Geek's Bluetooth Virtual Keyboard laser projects a full-size keyboard onto any flat, opaque surface, turning your iPhone and iPad into a working laptop at Starbucks, and a pricey (but totally worth it) pair of Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones not only let her make and answer phone calls with top sound quality but will also come in handy when she needs a little downtime to get her jam on and relax.
Oh, and because she also wants to stay warm throughout her winter days, these Coach Leather Tech Gloves, which are lined with a cashmere/wool blend and don't have to be removed to use touch-screen devices, are a very stylish must.
