DJ here. Jean Lafitte's still off in a pout about being asked to do a Zombie Gift Guide. I thought it was pretty funny but the pirate's got a sensitive side, apparently. So I thought I'd take over today and pick out some of my favorite wizarding and magical gifts available out there. Oh, and Suzanne said to tell you there's no tour stops until Sunday so no worries about that. Some fun stuff coming up next week, though!
Okay, I have my own Christmas wish list, which I'll be sharing with you next week, but if I were going to buy magical gifts for my friends...well, okay, most of my friends wouldn't like these at all. But I do, so here you go.
A Hand-Carved Wand
I always envied that Harry Potter crew and their wands. Of course now that I have Charlie, who needs a wand? Wands are wasted on Green Congress wizards anyway. Still, walking around with a wand is just cool, right?
Holy crap--I want these! You know how I love to carry spare potions vials around in my pockets. Of course these are really antibacterial hand cleaners for getting prete cooties off your hands.
Wooden Wizard Puzzle
This is kinda cool, and it's handmade. *Looks in mirror* I wonder how I'd look in a pointy hat and a robe? I'm thinking dorkier than usual.
Wizardy Wall Art
This reminds me of my shelves in my library, where I keep all my herbs and metals and gemstones and potions stuff. Only it's miniature. I think this would look cute behind the bar at the Green Gator. Well, until Jake took it down and threw it away. Guess it's not manly enough.
Cypress Wizard Santa
Ooh! Gotta have for my mantel. It's a cypress knee, which is so Louisiana, and then painted like a misshapen wizard.
It's a Wizard, Babe
Okay, I was channeling Rene there for a minute. Actually, Alex has a new niece, and I'm thinking this would be a great thing to send for a Christmas gift and sign as if it's from him. *Snickers* Wait till Norma reams him a new one! Oh, wait. It's a crochet pattern. I don't do crafts. Forget it. I'll find another way to annoy Alex.
Lord of the Rings Bracelet
Oh yeah. Eugenie will love this. I dragged her to a Lord of the Rings movie marathon last week. Almost ten hours and five tubs of popcorn later, she swore if I mentioned ever so much as mentioned the name Gandalf she'd kill me. Of course she has no idea wizards are real. And elves. Real elves do not carry bows and arrows and do not all look like Orlando Bloom in a blond wig and tights. Pity, that.
Trust Me, I'm a Wizard
I think I'll buy this for Adrian Hoffman, speaker of the Elders. What an ass. He'd never be caught dead in a t-shirt. All the more reason to get him one. Plus he'd know it was meant as snark because I don't trust him an inch.
So, what's your favorite? I'll give away a set of Pocket Potions to a commenter. They might be real potions; they might not. I'll never tell. No hoop-jumping like Suzanne makes you do. Just leave a comment!
