Celebritology Giftology Day 8: Have a very zombie Christmas

By Jen Chaney

Here's the eighth 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 holiday gift for the zombie lover.

Nothing warms the heart more than a rousing chorus of "I Saw Mommy Chewing Santa Claus," courtesy of this book. (Harper Collins)

Whether your friend or family member became a fan of flesh-eaters thanks to AMC's "Walking Dead" or has been tracking the undead since George Romero made his directorial debut, he or she should appreciate any of the following corpse-y Christmas presents.

Gingerdead Christmas ornaments: The Fraser fir in the foyer will look infinitely more festive with an embroidered, brain-munching gingerbread man hanging from its branches. ($7-$15,

"Zombie Cross-Stitch: 12 Patterns to Raise the Dead": The brilliance of giving this book, released earlier this year, works on two levels. First, it will make your crafty undead-obsessed sister very happy. Second: it pretty much guarantees that come next holiday season, you'll be getting a lovely, homemade wall hanging that says "Zombies Only Want You for Your Brains." ($14.95, Sterling)

"Walking Dead" T-shirt: The recipient of this gift -- which features the phrase "Don't Open. Dead Inside" printed across the front -- can wear it to work with a nice blazer and make his co-workers wonder: "Is he a huge fan of the ongoing saga about Rick Grimes, or is he trying to tell us he's desperately unmotivated due to the lack of holiday bonuses?" ($19.50, Hot Topic)

Zombie earrings: Dress up any outfit with this pair of
studs, which affirm to the world that the undead can be chic as well as creepy. ($16, Uncommon Goods)

"It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Zombies: A Book of Zombie Christmas Carols": This collection of fa-la-la flesh-eating tunes came out last year. But if you haven't yet experienced the heartwarming delights of "Deck the Halls With Parts of Wally," it's new to you. Pair with author Michael P. Spradlin's latest tome, "Every Zombie Eats Somebody Sometime: A Collection of Zombie Love Songs," and you'll be singing of slow walkers through Valentine's Day. (Each $9.99, Harper Collins)

(P.S. Here are more options if you're looking for other zombie books.)
