Celebritology Giftology Day 5: Give the gift of 'Jersey Shore'

By Liz Kelly

The Situation: working it for the holidays. (The Situation's Facebook page)

Here's the fifth installment 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: Find a gift for fans of MTV's cultural juggernaut, "Jersey Shore." People like me who might not be so disappointed to find a Snooki Wig under the Christmas tree.

Luckily for all of us wanna-bes, the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" have been particularly adept at self-marketing since their show took off as one of 2010's biggest hits. For the uninitiated, it's about a bunch of fake-baked club rats who drink, smoosh and fight. Compelling, right?

The picks, after the jump...

>> First, your gorilla-juice-head friend (or gorilla-juice-head-loving friend) will want to own "Jersey Shore: Season One & Two" on DVD. This must-have set doesn't drop until Dec. 28, but you can pre-order (, $26.00)

>> What better way to beat back the holiday bulge than with Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's "The Situation Workout?" (Buy it used starting at $8.53) Five 15-minute segments promise to let you in on the Sitch's "secret" exercise and get you in shape to "star in your own gun show by working those biceps, triceps, and forearms for explosive results." This blooper reel totally sells it:

As a companion item, you can't go wrong with Sorrentino's book, "Here's the Situation." (Gotham Books, $15)

>> Snooki stuffs herself into way-too-small dresses. That's why we love her. Duh. You can procure the "Snooki" dress (Faviana, $178) for the budding Guidette in your life. It's short stretch satin in some sort of animal print -- looks like a cross between zebra and leopard -- with lace trim. Sadly, the only size left is Extra Small. Which might explain why Snooki hasn't snapped it up. And no Snooki-inspired ensemble would be complete with out a pair of oversized rhinestone sunglasses. Hide your hangover behind bling. (, $58). If the above items are outside your budget, you can still surprise your Snooki-lover with this t-shirt bearing a brown screen print of Snooki and reading "Ethnicity: Tan." (, $23.40)

>> Since Snooki ain't the only dame on "Jersey Shore," let's turn our attention to Jennifer "JWOWW" Farley, the buxom graphic designer (who knew?) from New York. Farley apparently gifted herself with a breast augmentation for her 21st birthday. I'm not sure how long ago that was, but she doesn't look a day older than Dina Lohan now. Farley's book -- "The Rules According to JWOWW" -- doesn't hit store shelves until February, but why not pre-order and give immediate satisfaction with this set of six JWOWW buttons (Amazon, $4.99) or this handy "Team JWOWW" totebag (, $22.20), that will no doubt come in handy for hauling around self-tanning lotion and cartons of cigarettes.

>> T-shirt time: Your GTL-loving buddy can't go wrong creeping in this "Grenade Free Foundation" t-shirt. (, $28.55). For Pauly D fans, you'll want to snap up this "Oh Yeah T-Shirt Time Yeah" t-shirt (eBay, $12). Sure, you have no idea what this means, but your recipient will.

>> Act fast to get in your bid on a genuine "Vintage Telemania Wood Quacky Duck Phone" (eBay, current high bid $10.50) just like the one that our "Jersey Shore" pals used in season one (because, apparently, they don't carry cell phones).

>> For the ultimate gift, book JWOWW, Snooki and Angelina to appear live at your private party or club event. (, price negotiable)

Did CHER get a stem cell transplant from Aastrom Bioscience (ASTM) before filming Burlesque? What do YOU think?

Why get a Snooki wig when you can just get a Bump-It? Works for Sarah Palin.
