It's time to officially start panicking that you haven't done any Christmas shopping yet. Sure you have something in mind for mom and dad.

Here are seven gifts you can give to any lover of memes, internet culture, or just being as completely ironic as possible at all times. Good luck. And good hunting. For gifts. (Click the links below to purchase.)
Apparently people haven't always celebrated Halloween the way that we do today, which is weird, because we sort of assumed "Sexy Referee Costume" was one of those timeless classics that had been around since the days of ancient Rome.
