Don’t be freaked, but let’s get freaky. Over time, the word “freak” has evolved to take on a lot of different meanings. While the crass usage in conjunction with freak shows is based on an unusual appearance or deformity, getting freaked also means being stressed out or frightened. But to get your freak on, well, that’s typically reserved for business involving bad dancing and/or sex.

Anyhow, after covering a lot of ground in our previous gift guides – making suggestions for games, books, home video, etc. – we wanted to wrap up with a final list that combines all the weird, scary, sexy and pretty grown-up items that didn’t make it into previous categories. Since you won’t be able to order these and have them delivered by Christmas Day, you can still get them in time for a post-holiday date or night of freakiness.
