Looking for a holiday gift for a Blizzard fan? A Diablo III pre-order would do. But what if they already have that? Then pre-order Heart of the Swarm for them. If they have that as well, that’s where you start running out of options.
Gamers are some of the geekiest computer users you will find. These guys are betting the can get gamers to upgrade a perfectly good mouse just to get a new one that has artwork from their favorite game.

12-year old Norweigan Hans Jørgen Olsen saved himself and his sister from being harmed by an angry moose by emulating skills he learned from World of Warcraft. According to NextNature, the Olsen siblings “trespassed the territory of the moose during a walk in the forest near their home.”

In any case the World of Warcraft epic cooking apron is the perfect gift for skillful cooks who are also WoW fans (wonder how large the intersection is in that Venn diagram?).
Twitter or World of Warcraft? What’s a well-connected gamer to choose? Oh, listen, no one’s saying that you can’t juggle your iPhone and your mouse at the same time as is, but shouldn’t it be easier to raid while keeping up with your tweets?
This is it, folks. The final piece. Now you can cosplay as a World of Warcraft character while eating WoW-themed snacks at a WoW-themed computer in a room painted to resemble something from WoW, and you can do it all while drinking from one of these (very expensive) steins.
