The economy is ailing, the state of Michigan is going hungry and we're calling on you, fair citizen, to do your patriotic duty and consume. To help you out, we've put together this handy-dandy holiday gift guide. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or Festivus, you're sure to find something for all of the special Buckeye fans in your life.

The 11W Shop
From timeless shirts like Beat Michagain and quality baby wear to new classics like Gang of Six and the Barwis tribute you see to the left, the 11W Shop is a great first stop for unique Buckeye gifts. (Be sure to use coupon code CYBER48 to take 25% off orders over $30.)
Michigan vs. Ohio State: The Rivalry DVD
This look at the rivalry first aired on HBO days before the Michigan game last season and is now finally available on DVD. If you've seen the doc, you know it's just about the most perfect 59 minutes of video ever released.
Chic: The Extraordinary Rise of Ohio State Football and the Tragic Schoolboy Athlete Who Made it Happen
Those of you that liked Joe's Chic feature will love this book from Bob Hunter of the Dispatch.
Rivalry Series: Beat Michigan DVDs
This three-disc set is a must for any student of Buckeye game film. Disc one features the 1979 victory that sent Earle's first squad to the Rose Bowl undefeated thanks to a Todd Bell touchdown off of a late blocked punt, disc two is the 2002 nail-biter that earned the Buckeyes a matchup with Miami and the third disc is the shootout from 2006.
Sports Illustrated: The College Football Book
This book is worth it just for the photos alone, but the essays from years past and the all-decade teams add extra depth. It's certain to add a level of manliness to any coffee table.
War As They Knew It: Woody Hayes, Bo Schembechler and America in a Time of Unrest
We've covered this a couple of times on the site and if you're a good Woody disciple and thirst for historical context next to anything you learn about the Buckeyes, look no further.
Etsy Ohio State
My wife will tell you that Etsy is like a girly-craftsy eBay. There are some hits and misses, but if you're looking for something for that special Buckeye lady in your life, Etsy is a good place to start.
Helmet Purse
And if you don't find anything on Etsy, she'll surely love the Helmet Purse, which we covered before Mother's day. This purse works like a tan -- it adds a +2 hotness bonus to any lady sporting one.
Ohio State Cornhole Kit
You love cornhole. You love the Buckeyes. Chances are someone else you know does as well.
Ohio State University Football Vault
Put together like a scrapbook, this tome contains stickers, replica program covers and other awesomeness.
Rivalry Toilet Paper
Remember, cleanliness is next to godliness.
