Celebritology Giftology Day 2: Getting 'Lost'

By Jen Chaney

"Lost," in mammoth book form. (DK Press)

Here's the second in our 12 Days of Celebritology Giftology series, a dozen posts designed to help you cross the celebrity- and pop-culture-obsessed pals off your holiday gift-giving lists. Think of these posts as our gift to you. We're just that generous.

Today's mission: Satisfy the "Lost" lover in your life. (Hey, give us some credit. We waited an entire day into this series before we suggested any "Lost"-related gift options.)

Your Sawyer-deprived friends and/or relatives already have the tricked-out "Lost" Season 6 Blu-ray box set. They already own every other season of the dearly departed Dharma drama on DVD. They even managed to score a couple of precious items during the "Lost" auction. So what's left to give them for the holidays?

Given the plethora of "Lost" merchandise out there, plenty. Here are a few specific recommendations.

Books

"The Lost Encyclopedia" by Tara Bennett and Paul Terry (DK, $45) is a 404-page, glossy, mega-tome filled with detailed graphics, beautiful photos and information about virtually every person, place or thing -- both major and exceedingly minor -- ever featured on the show. Sure, you could theoretically find a lot of this information on Lostpedia. But Lostpedia won't look nearly as a good on your coffee table.

For the "Lost" bibliophile who wants to delve more specifically into what happened during that controversial sixth season, "Finding Lost: Season Six" (ECW Press, $14.95)-- the final installment in Nikki Stafford's series of island analyses -- is also a good option.


Apparel

Merchandise is still available through the damoncarltonandapolarbear.com Web site, the same one that blew up when all those "Lost" prints were sold last year. One particularly irresistible item: this simple white T-shirt ($15) emblazoned with the phrase: "I watched 'Lost' for 6 seasons and all I got were these Daddy issues." It's funny because it's true.

Tech

ABC also still has a robust online "Lost" shop, which includes a section with items designed by fans via Cafe Press. And that's where consumers can find one of these lovely "I'd Rather Be Lost" iPhone cases, perfect for the person who frequently Tweets from his fake Benjamin Linus account.

Obviously there are many, many other "Lost" present possibilities out there. Got a favorite you'd like to recommend? Feel free to share in the comments section.
