Celebritology Giftology Day 9: Celebrity worship

By Liz Kelly

Here's the ninth installment in our 12 Days of Celebritology Giftology series, a dozen posts designed to help you cross your 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: For some, celebrity-watching is a transformative -- you might almost say spiritual -- experience. This holiday season, show the celeb worshipper in your life that you acknowledge and support his or her belief in celebrities as higher powers.

Read on after the jump ...

Artist Vicki Berndt sells her celebrity-inspired inspirational/devotional art at Etsy.com. And while her original paintings are pricey -- $2,000 for Saint Winehouse or Saint Joey (as in Ramone) -- some budget-conscious items are to be had: The Saint Lucy candle ($14) or this Big-Eyed Courtney candle ($16) that evokes the magic of Margaret Keane's big-eyed kid paintings. And -- BONUS! -- it will burn for 60 hours straight (approximately the same amount of time Love spends on Twitter before flaming out).

Looking for something more wearable? You can't go wrong with the MJK Rosary ($19.50) -- that's right, a Catholic Rosary featuring a reproduction of Berndt's painting of the Michael Jackson Krishna. Or if your giftee's taste is more late '70s punk, snap up a versatile Johnny Thunders brooch ($25). People say this about everything, but it truly will work with a skirt or jeans!
