So I thought I'd pull together a few gift guides for those of us prone to the less-plain-vanilla side of life, beginning today with some fun toys and trinkets for the vampire...er, I mean the vampire-lover...in your life. What do you like? Seen other vampire things you want to share a link for? (Coming up soon: the werewolf shopping guide, the zombie shopping guide, and more...)
1. Vampire Blood Incense
I mean...ick. Plus, on the package: "Harvested through an advanced process in which vampires are slowly bled. The unearthly qualities of the blood are isolated and extracted into a premium incense. Some vampires were harmed during this process but none met true death." Uh-huh.
2. L'il Vampire Baby Pacifier
I actually have a newborn nephew, and am thinking Noah could use a little vampire love for the holidays :-)
3. "Bite Me" Bottle Opener
Hey, this is kinda cool. And if it's real silver, depending on your vampire mythos, it could double as a weapon.
4. Dracula Dog Costume
I don't know about you guys, but Shane and Tanker would bite me themselves if I tried to put this on either one of them. They have much higher standards.
5. Take a Dip of This
So...nothing says Christmas like a coffin-shaped dip bowl with a vampire on the bottom, right? Right?
6. Hardcore Hardware
From the folks at vampirefangs.com, some serious oral hardware--your own retractable fangs. Because you don't always want to just be hanging out, you know?
7. Emergency Rations
In case you get stuck at a boring office holiday party without the proper liquid refreshment, carry your own vial of blood on a necklace, guarded by dragon charms. (Also from the fine folks at vampirefangs.com).
8. Words That Kill
For the vampire who has everything, a set of 200 vampire-related word magnets in this Vampire Poetry Kit to leave bloody love notes on your fridge. Where you keep the chilled blood, I guess.
9. When A Simple Card Won't Do
When you care enough to kill with the very best, spotted on etsy, a vampire slaying kit, complete with two stakes, a wooden mallet, a Bible, some rosary beads, some garlic powder--all in antique bottles.
Huh? Wha? He's not for sale? Damn.
So, what's under your vampire's holiday tree? Coming up next....the Werewolf Shopping Guide.
