From the wilds of Jurassic Park to the bitterly cold plains of Fargo, each map highlights what characters travel where, and how the geography impacts the story.

3. Movie Passes

Entertainment Gift Guide - MovieThe winter months are perfect for taking in a movie. First – it’s indoors, so you can stay snuggly warm while being entertained. Second – it’s prestige movie season! Oscar contenders are flooding into the theaters at full force over the next few weeks, so consider movie gift cards to enjoy a special night out with someone while watching some of the best films of the year on the big screen. Or, pre-buy tickets to some of the most anticipated screenings, like the new Star Wars film.

4. Westeros Map Adventurer’s Messenger Bag

Entertainment Gift Guide-Messenger Bag

Game of Thrones may be coming to an end on TV, but the fandom will live on (especially when George R.R. Martin finally releases the next book in the series). This hip messenger bag is subtly geek chic, featuring a map of Westeros and an ultra cool lining featuring the main house sigils. Gift it to your college or school-aged niece or nephew to pack their essential kingdom-ruling papers and supplies.

5. Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch

Entertainment Gift Guide -SuperMarioOdyssey

Nintendo’s newest video game system continues to dazzle with its signature titles, including an all-new entry in the Mario series. As always, Mario is trying to rescue Princess Peach, this time from an unsavory marriage to Bowser. The big twist? Mario’s got a magic hat (named Cappy) that allows him to take over other characters and tap into their abilities – crash through rocks as a T-Rex or leap up buildings as a frog. With incredible new worlds and fun new abilities, this is a must-play game for any Nintendo fan.

6. The Beatles The Christmas Records Box Set

Entertainment Gift Guide-Beatles Christmas

Back in the day, The Beatles used to release special records for their fan club members at the holidays. With cheerful holiday greetings and psychedelic artwork, these holiday messages are now gathered together on colored vinyl singles in a special box set, alongside recording notes and reproductions of the band’s fan club newsletters. A perfect pick for any Beatles fanatic new or old.

8. The Networks Board Game

The Networks
Think you can do better than the network execs? Put your programming skills to the test with this entertaining board game. Select shows, hire stars, and run ads to generate revenue to bring in bigger and better stars (and ideas) – but careful, your network needs to keep things fresh as shows lose popularity after their debut season. This challenging game is an amazing mash-up for board game geeks and TV junkies alike.
