A television staple since it premiered in 2007, “The Big Bang Theory” is finally coming to an end after 12 years on the air (stream, $2.99 on Amazon). What started off as a show beloved by fans for its nerdy humor and subculture references has become a global phenomenon that’s resonated with audiences young and old.
Celebrate the show and its final season by picking up one of these seven gifts (Cheesecake Factory gift card not included), which they’re sure to love more than Sheldon loves his spot.

3. Clue: “The Big Bang Theory” Edition
This TV take on the classic board game pits Penny, Leonard, Howard, Raj, Bernadette, and Amy Farrah Fowler as suspects after Sheldon is betrayed. Did Raj do it in Penny’s living room with a wiped hard drive? Or did Leonard seek revenge in the stairwell with an erased equation board?

6. “The Big Bang Theory and Philosophy: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Aristotle, Locke”
How would some of the world’s greatest philosophical minds interpret the lessons and story arcs presented on the show? That’s the premise behind this book, which opines on some of the show’s most memorable conceits (Leonard Nimoy, roommate agreements, Darth Vader Force-chokes) and places them in a lighthearted discussion about ethics, science, friendships and the human condition. What would Aristotle say about Sheldon Cooper? The book has some thoughts. Purchase: $18.95 on BarnesandNoble.com.
7. Elevator Journal
Fans of the show will recognize the long-running gag of the elevator being constantly out of service. This gift finally lets the elevator get some use, as a 8″ x 5″ journal. The journal contains 320 lined pages and makes a great stocking stuffer or “just because” gift. The front cover shows the elevator blocked off by caution tape and an “out of order” sign, while the back cover shows a view of the staircase. If you know, you know. Purchase: $8.98 on Amazon.com.
