We're creating a series of outlandish, original and just plain crazy gift ideas suitable for, well, pretty much anyone. As long as they enjoy good things. We can't help you if your friends have bad taste. This article is all about:

Gifts for the Gamer Who has Everything

The Cube

Have money to burn and a science nerd in your circle of people-I-would-humiliate-important-religious-figures-for? Get them The Cube. Voted "easiest to use" and "most reliable" by MAKE magazine, The Cube is a crisp, compact 3D printer that is easy to use and safe around the children. It's also rather trendy-looking and would make a rather smashing addition to anyone's living room line-up. I know. The Cube isn't quite related to video games but who needs store-bought memorabilia when you can custom-print your own Metal Gear Solid collectibles?

Companion Cube Die

What's iconic, cubical and just made to be brusquely tossed around? This Companion Cube Die, of course. Available in frosted plastic, stainless steel and silver "alumide" plastic, the Companion Cube Die will be 3D-printed to match your exact specifications. Now, how cool is that?

Discworld Ales

Eat, drink and be pun-ny, for tomorrow you may be engaged in terrible word play. The Discworld Ales are a thing of bubbling, decadent beauty. Each taster box, lovingly embellished so as to look like they came straight from the Unseen University, consists of four mouth-watering beers. I barely drink and I want a shipment of my own. Aroma of tropical citrus fruits and resinous pine? Honesty, earthy and refreshing ale with a classic aroma of cedar and herbs? Tell me that doesn't sound inviting.

Super Mario Cat Complex

If you've ever found yourself moping over no one ever sends "Thank You!" cards in spite of all the effort you put into holiday gift-giving, here's a suggestion to consider: get something for your cat instead. At least they're honest about taking you for granted. What makes this stylish Super Mario Cat Complex most excellent, however, is its decorous pigmentation. Want to please your cat and demonstrate your love for Italian plumbers without brutally mauling your home's color scheme? No worries!

Drew Wise's Geeky Christmas Apparel

Christmas is coming and you know what that means: ugly sweaters. But don't let that defeat your need for style. Show tradition who is boss by armoring yourselves with these woolen wonders. My personal favorites include the Gotta Catch 'Em All Hoodie and the Handheld Hoodie, both of which practically scream for snappy, slightly inappropriate captions. Bulky Christmas sweaters not your thing? Don't worry. Designer Drew Wise has an armada of other geeky pieces in waiting.

Mass Effect Nerf Gun

There's nothing more depressing than feigning adulthood on Christmas morning. Who really wants to sit around with a bowl full of sensible oatmeal when you could rampaging across the backyard with a nerf gun in each hand?This hand-painted, Mass Effect-inspired delight is the perfect excuse for anyone to reignite their passion in relatively harmless projectile weaponry.

    I need to get "The Cube" so I can print out some of these:


    ...I just wish it wasn't so expensive...It's going for about the same price as some of the best disc refurbish/resurface machines out there.
