Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat. Can I have a Halo book, and some other gaming tat?
Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft Auto, Wiley - £17.99
The latest from Masters of Doom author David Kushner looks at the origins and controversies of the phenomenon that is GTA. From top-down roots to Hot Coffee and beyond, it's a fascinating tale of Rockstar excess and success.
The Greatest Video Game Music 2, £11.76 (£5.99 download)
Ever wanted the Skyrim music to serenade you doing the washing up? How about a dose of the Arkham City theme on the way to work? The second London Philharmonic collection of gaming music is a total barnstormer.
Claptrap Costume T-Shirt, 2K Games - £12.50 (plus international shipping)
The good people of 2K Games do quite a decent line in apparel sprung from their games, but even the most devoted minion of Claptrap might find this one a push. If you're after easy-access cosplay, however, then feel free to drape yourself in some idiotic robot.
Awakening: The Art of Halo 4, Titan Books - £29.99
You can discover the artistic flourish behind the Forerunners in this beautiful hardback. With words penned by veteran games journalist Paul Davies and images direct from 343 Industries, it's a must-have for any self-respecting Master Chief obsessive. Halo beyond Bungie is still a bright place indeed.
Gears of War Meccano Armadillo APC, Meccano - £24.99
Meccano's come a long way. The plastic and metal parts that were once bolted to form boring old cranes and bridges can now become a highly detailed Armadillo APC. Or, if you've bought the right kit, a Delta Squad C.O.G. Centaur tank. One would hope a fully operational Lancer is next year's must-have...
Halo Signature Series: Forward Unto Dawn, Mega Bloks - £249.99
Mini Warthogs bundling over your carpet while a Charon-class frigate hovers above (on the coffee table) could be a peak moment in toy history. It's not cheap, but the light-up Cortana and fully stocked UNSC Armoury might sweeten the deal.
Rook Islands T-shirt inspired by Far Cry 3, Insert Coin Clothing - £25
Insert Coin Clothing always seems to provide the best in gaming t-shirts - and is proof that gaming clobber has come a long way from XXL black tees with loud dragon motifs. This tasty Far Cry 3 number is an example, and there's plenty more where it came from.
Black Ops II: Earforce Tango headset, Turtle Beach - £239.99
If you're serious about CoD, you need to be serious about the high-pitched voices telling you you're rubbish - and swearing back at them. Turtle Beach is the go-to company for expensive ear-wear and microphones, and its Black Ops II range shows it at the height of its powers.
Grand Thieves & Tomb Raiders: How British Videogames Conquered the World, Aurum Press - £14.99
This fascinating book colourfully presents the UK's gaming origins in the nerd bedrooms of the 1980s before the stories behind our greatest electronic exports roll on in.
