It's that time of year again to bring gay tidings for you and your kin. There are so many options for finding that gift for a special someone out there. With the cold weather many shoppers prefer to order online these days, and who wants to deal with Black Friday? Make it a Pink Saturday and let your fingers do the walking!

Shake up a Snow Globe with electronic group Erasure and their collection of traditional and original tunes. The duo deserve "A Little Respect" for trying something different at www.erasuresnowglobe.com .

Hot for teacher? Try Glee's Matthew Morrison and his holiday offering called A Classic Christmas.

Sisters are doing it for themselves: Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, and Tamar Braxton are all releasing seasonal CDs this year.

Looking for a stocking stuffer? Cut to the chase with Curb underwear from the UK. These Brits don't beat around the bush with waistbands reading "Active," "Versatile," or "Bottom," perhaps stating the obvious. Model Ben Riches is so comfortable he wears them on the tube in London! Hop onboard at www.curbwear.com .

It was just a matter of time before RuPaul had her own fragrance with Glamazon, a beauty collection with makeup and cologne for both men and women. Take a whiff of the unisex perfume and feel fierce instantaneously. It's a Ru-volution taking over the world at www.colorevolution.com .

Finally, for those that prefer a little religion in the holiday we have a way to start off 2014 with a blessed bang. The Nunn found some priests with big blessings to give. Themed "Love is Love, Orthodox or Not!" this calendar makes each a month one to look forward to. There is now a second edition and 10% of sales will be donated to support LGBT causes in Russia. These men of the cloth have a cross to bear and you will be praying for more at www.orthodox-calendar.com .

Ho ho ho and jingle all the gay with these unique gifts sure to please even the biggest Scrooge!
