It’s holiday season again — and just like every other year, you still don’t know what gifts to get people. But don’t fret, Noisecreep nation; we’re here with a list of kickass gift ideas for the metal fans in your life.

Ronnie James Dio Statue, by Rock Iconz
$115
The hard rock world suffered a huge loss earlier this year when Ronnie James Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer at the age of 67. For a limited time, the folks at KnuckleBonz are offering their sculpture of the man from Silver Mountain. Some of the proceeds from the sale of the statue benefit Dio’s Stand Up and Shout cancer fund.

Brady’s Wallet, by Obey Clothing

Shepard Fairey is one of the counterculture art world’s most influential figures.

Boris Vallejo & Julie Bell’s 2011 Fantasy Calendar
$12.99
If you love the barbarian-and-dragon-covered album art of bands like Manowar and Hammerfall, this calendar has your name written all over it. A god in the fantasy and erotica universes, Vallejo’s distinct painting style has helped fuel the mythical imagery favored in the power metal scene.

Gargoyle Reissue by Zorlac Skateboards
$55
Originally released in the mid-’80s, the Gargoyle skate deck from Zorlac Skateboards quickly became a favorite with punk- and metal-loving riders. The artwork was done by Brian “Pushead” Schroeder, who is famous for his arresting work with Metallica, Kylesa and many others.

Heavy Metal and Horror Movie Baby Doll Dresses, by The Womanimal
$60
Hey, ladies, are you tired of wearing the same old metal T-shirts day in and day out? If the answer is yes, then you might want to look into The Womanimal. The Philadelphia-based DIY clothing designer takes tees from bands like Candlemass or horror flicks like ‘Phantasm‘ and cuts them up into hot-looking baby-doll dresses.

‘Mean Deviation: Four Decades of Progressive Heavy Metal,’ by Jeff Wagner
$16.47
We’ve already profiled Ian Christe and the spectacular things he’s been doing with his Bazillion Points Books publishing house, and this new title continues his winning streak. Written by former Metal Maniacs editor Jeff Wagner, ‘Mean Deviation’ is ultimately an expertly researched love letter to the largely misunderstood and often maligned progressive metal scene.

‘Star Wars’ New Millennium Falcon
$169.99
This would be a fantastic gift for people in their late 30s or 40s who grew up playing with the original ‘Star Wars‘ action figures. Hasbro did a wonderful job with this revved-up edition of the original Millennium Falcon toy, which first hit stores in 1979. This new version is more than two and a half feet long, seats 18 characters and includes other sweet features that’ll bring a smile to the face of any sci-fi addict.

Trick Pro 1-v Double Bass Drum Pedal

‘Friday the 13th’ Jason Ski Mask
$16
Scare everyone on the slopes with this Jason Voorhees-styled ski mask. Although you don’t have to be tearing up a mountain on a snowboard to wear it, we wouldn’t necessarily recommend donning it while walking around your neighborhood at night.

Drew Millward Monolith Watch, by Vannen Art Watches
$80
UK-based artist Drew Millward is mostly known for his eye-catching posters for groups like Opeth and Gallows, but his recent design for Vannen Watches is what earned him a slot here. Titled Monolith, Millward’s wristwatch features a cyclops-like creature surrounded by a gorgeous array of sea-green leaves and reptilian scaling.

His serpentine-like guitar work with Dimmu Borgir, Old Man’s Child and Dødheimsgard has helped make Galder one of the most celebrated musicians in the Norwegian black metal scene. But now any axe slinger can rock out with one of Galder’s signature ESP guitars.

‘Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock’
$41.99
Most of us have already tested our virtual rock star skills on ‘Guitar Hero,’ but this new addition to the long-running series proves to be one of the most challenging so far. In addition to jamming to tracks by the likes of Anthrax and Strung Out, players will also have a chance to make themselves look like jackasses by trying to keep up with Rush.

Andrew W.K. Throbblehead, by Aggronautix
$19.99
Life in 2010 is a never-ending cycle of work, bills and stress. That’s why we can all use one of these Andrew W.K. “throbbleheads” in our homes. Put one of these toys in your living room and you’ll always be reminded of W.K.’s desire for all of us to “party hard.”

Suicidal Tendencies Era Shoes
$52
Even if you don’t live anywhere near Venice, Calif., you, too, can sport Mike Muir’s iconic look with these Suicidal Tendencies-approved shoes. They feature an album art inspired illustration on the insole, and the group’s logo printed boldly across the heel. We also suggest picking up a pair of Dickies, black sunglasses and a blue bandanna to complete the ST look.

Big Muff Distortion Bass Pedal, by Electro-Harmonix
$82.35
Late, great Metallica bassist Cliff Burton was known to use a version of this pedal, and we don’t have to tell you what a beast of a tone he had. It’s a great pedal for our readers who play in a power trio, because it can help you thicken out any sound.

‘Zen of Screaming 2′ DVD, by Melissa Cross
$22.49
Have you ever watched Machine Head‘s Robb Flynn shout his way through a 90-minute live show and wonder how he doesn’t lose his voice? It’s all in breathing methods — along with a lot of practice, of course. This DVD can help guide you through the various steps it takes to achieve metal domination.

‘Mosh Potatoes: Recipes, Anecdotes and Mayhem From the Heavyweights of Heavy Metal,’ by Steve Seabury
$15
This cookbook includes 147 recipes from metal masters such as Joey Belladonna (Orange Tequila Shrimp), Dave Ellefson (Star Cookies) and Lemmy Kilmister‘s special Krakatoa Surprise. The book is cleverly divided into Opening Acts (appetizers), Headliners (entrees) and Encores (desserts).

Sepultura ‘Beneath the Remains’ Infant One-Piece
$17.50
Get your kid’s metal obsession started early with this one-piece from Hot Topic. We never thought the word “adorable” would ever be associated with Brazilian thrash warlords Sepultura — but, as you can see, we’ve been proven wrong.

Kiss 42-inch LED HD Television
$1,188
When it comes to brand marketing in music, there is no one better than Gene Simmons. But we think the bassist/vocalist has outdone himself with this Kiss-branded LED HD television. If you’re on a tight budget, this item will probably be off your list this year, but if there’s a Kiss fanatic near and dear to your heart – you might want to take the financial hit for them.
