Gift Ideas For Hunger Games Fans
If you are shopping for yourself or for someone who knows everything about Katniss, Peeta, Gale and District 12, there are plenty of options to choose from in a variety of price ranges.
Hunger Games memorabilia and collectables make appreciated gifts for Christmas and birthdays. They're also wonderful goodie bag gifts for hot new trend "Hunger Games" themed parties.
Hunger Games Jewelry
It's a case of life imitating art. When Katniss returns to the Capitol in "Catching Fire" she discovers that replicas of the pin she wore in the hunger games are all the rage.
That's equally true here in the real world with sales of hunger games jewelry soaring.
There are plenty of options to choose from. Most are well priced, with many available for less than $20.
The central theme of Hunger Games jewelry is based on the pin worn by Katniss Everdeen. It is a symbol of a mockingjay with an arrow.
Choose from earrings, pendants, brooches and bracelets or mix and match individual pieces. My nieces have not taken their mockingjay necklaces off for even a second and they swear they never, never will!
The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook
The Hunger Games Cookbook features more than 150 recipes inspired by food from the three book series. The recipes include Mrs. Everdeen's Breakfast of Mush and Rue's Roasted Parsnips.
The titles are catchy and some of the dishes are easy to make and taste great but many of the recipes have been panned by people who actually know how to cook well.
They say the proportions are completely out of whack.
Others are not comfortable with dishes made up of rabbits, wild dogs, racoon, squirrel and beaver.
However there are some interesting dishes that will supply exciting potluck suggestions for a Hunger Games dinner.
If nothing else, the book will be an interesting edition in your collection of recipe books.
Let the feast begin!

It is now scheduled for release on September 01, 2012 and you can place a pre-order to ensure you get the doll.
Manufacturer Mattell says the doll is geared for adult collectors. It is certainly a big departure from the original Barbie. The Katniss doll is strong, confident and hopefully free of layers of bright blue eyeshadow.
Katniss will join "Twilight Saga" characters Bella Swan and Edward Cullen along with Prince William and Kate in the Barbie Collection.
Collectable Hunger Games action figures are also available. Choose from Katniss or a set of three characters.
