Why an article about Christmas gifts ideas, you may ask? Well, hello! Christmas is only 12 days away, now. It is coming very quickly and I do not want to miss it!
Of course, I am secretly hoping that my friends and family are reading this and will know what to do.
So, are you still wondering what to get your girlfriend for Christmas? Or are you still wondering what to get your boyfriend for Christmas? Yes, me too.
Here are some Christmas gifts ideas that might save you from some migraines, should you be the last minute type, although I must say, Christmas happens at the same date every year. Moving on.
GLOW ACTION FIGURES
Have you ever been a fan of wrestling? I have not. Wait! That is not true! I started to have a lot of respect for wrestlers when I watched that fabulous movie with Mickey Rourke, called ‘The Wrestler‘, directed by Darren Aronofski.
The movie tells the heartbreaking story life of Robin Ramzinski, a not so young professional wrestler with a heart condition. You should definitely see this movie.
So, with all of that in my mind, I saw on Netflix an ad for ‘Glow’, a TV series based on the true story of two guys who started producing in the seventies a show of female wrestlers. I was not attracted by this at all, but finally decided to watch.
Well, Folks, I am so glad I did! This Netflix show is wonderful! Everything is great about it: the script, the dialogues, the actresses, the actors, the music! It made me discover this wonderful song by Siouxsie and The Banshees: Cities in Dust.
So, imagine my surprise when I discovered that I could actually get, in my own house, a pair of Glow action figures!
RICK AND MORTY ACTION FIGURES
Ever heard of Rick and Morty? No? Well, say no more, I am here to help! Rick and Morty is an American adult animated sci-fi TV series created in 2013.
It depicts the adventures of the Smith family, composed of the parents, Beth and Jerry, their children, Summer and Morty, and Beth’s father, Rick Sanchez.
Both Rick and Morty go on crazy adventures in a multitude of universes, where the viewer can compare the cynical view on life of Rick and the more naive one of Morty. Enjoy!
Ok, Folks, so I am going down memory lane and I must share with you my adoration for Rocky Balboa, the champion with a big heart. Remember when, after his first victory, he shouts ‘Adriaaaan! Adriaaaan!’ ? My heart melted.
I have always loved this character and I have always had a soft spot for Sylvester Stallone. Moreover, I think the genesis of Rocky is a fascinating story. Sly Stallone surely lived the American Dream!
As I said right above, I have a soft spot for Sylvester Stallone, so, I am just going to accept it and to give in to the fascination.
Don’t you think this Rambo action figure is cool? I think it is so brilliantly done! I am going to warn Santa that, after he has eaten all my cookies drunk all my milk, he had better fulfilled my action figures needs!
KILL BILL ACTION FIGURES
Are you a fan of Uma Thurman? Or perhaps of Quentin Tarantino? Well, these Kill Bill action figures might just be the things you need if you are still torturing yourself about what to get your girlfriend for Christmas, or what to get your boyfriend for Christmas.
So Folks, by now you know my views on manga, as well as my inclination towards Naruto. And, in order to reflect an idiosyncratic view of life, why not getting him or her an upside down Naruto?
And what about a Daisy Duke figurine, in order to remember good old days, where we thought we were worries free in the eighties? The nice and sexy hillbilly cousins fighting against the mean billionaire-uncle-Scrooge-type, with the help of their beautiful cousin, a femme fatale in shorts, Daisy Duke?
