With Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, you've probably made all of your discount-off-brand-electronic and must-have-toy-of-2011 purchases. That means it's time to start shopping for the harder names on your holiday gift list, and often times, no one is harder to shop for than comedy nerds. You think you know what they like, you get it, and it turns out they stopped liking it two seasons, albums or parody videos ago. It's not your fault; the faithful (of any stripe) are a pain to shop for.

With that in mind, we've compiled a list of some of the items we'd be delighted to give or receive this year. Hopefully, this will get you well on your way to not seeing eyes roll back in their heads on Christmas morning.
