    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.

    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.

    Gift Cards! Be it for GameStop, Target, Best Buy, or for PSN/XBL. They're great for the person that's too lazy to think of a specific item/not sure of the gamer's taste in games.

    As far as specific games, I'd go with the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus HD Collection, Dark Souls, and Uncharted 3.

    Buy them the latest Humble Bundle

    http://www.humblebundle.com/

    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.

    What about the games Mr Destructoid is in. He's been in more than one this year. Off the top of my head there is Burger Time and Ms Splosionman. There was also an ipod game too wasn't there?

    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.
