Got an idea for the Destructoid Holiday Gift Guide?
Hey guys, it's that time of the year again. Halloween is all but done and now we've got two months to be responsible and get our Christmas shopping done. Or you could do what I did last year and leave it until the last minute, order it all off Amazon and then panic when snowstorms crippled the entire country.
But for now, we want suggestions for gifts you'd give a gamer this year for Christmas time. It could be a game or it could just be something game related, like this Portal 2 pint glass or these Capcom Megaman decals.
If you're stuck, have a look at last year's guide for inspiration. Post your ideas below for what you'd like to either give or be receiving for the Holiday season.
Normandy SR2 replicas. Because Mass Effect.
I'm buying Team Fortress 2 for all my friends.
I know this is a serious thread, but anything from think geek is sure to be a winner. Just copy paste their catalog and I'd be a happy camper.
Is there a bottle of chloroform in there? If not, there needs to be.

As far as specific games, I'd go with the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection, Dark Souls, and Uncharted 3.
Oh my God, I've seen the perfect gift for Hamza!
Remote controlled air-shark!
Buy them the latest Humble Bundle
If you pay more than the current average ($4.77) it comes with The Binding of Isaac and Blocks That Matter.
Ideally this is "Buy everybody you know The Binding of Isaac" but since that's only $5, may as well go the extra mile.
This is pretty much exactly what I was going to suggest, I'll pick out some of my favorite stuff a bit later on.

Represent the peeps that represented you or something.
Raskulls was another game he was in too. If Retro City Rampage is out before Christmas, Jonathan Holmes is that game.
Pretty much anything from Insert Coin Tees.
ThinkGeek have released more official Portal 2 merch including
