It’s hard to believe that December is already underway, but we’re now a little over three weeks away from Christmas, and that clock just doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. With that in mind, for today’s installment of Daily Dead’s 2019 Holiday Gift Guide, I’ve compiled some Cyber Monday deals that genre fans would definitely be interested in, and we’re also going to dive into some killer online stores where you can find some horror-fied housewares and ornaments.
Oh, and this is just a reminder that previous retailers that we’ve mentioned in the first two installments of this year’s HGG (Creepy Co., Fangoria, Gallery1988, Cavity Colors, Fright-Rags, Pixel Elixir, Hot Topic, Amazon, Eaglemoss Collections) are all still offering up deals and discounts through tonight exclusively on their websites for Cyber Monday.
Oh, and if you’re looking for some specific deals, all three of Fangoria’s fiction novels (Our Lady of the Inferno, My Pet Serial Killer, and Carnivorous Lunar Activities) are currently available for less than $35, both of David Sodergren’s novels are currently 99 cents on Kindle, and everything is on sale at 7thApt’s online store, plus you get a free gift when you purchase three or more items.
Read on for all the great deals and gift ideas, and be sure to head back here every day this week for more tremendously terror-tacular editions of DD’s Holiday Gift Guide.

I’m a longtime fan of Horror Decor, which is why I have been featuring them on our Holiday Gift Guide since the very beginning. Anything I’ve ever ordered has always been a hit with the giftee, and their designs are a lot of fun. Oh, and because many of their items are handmade, it’s better to get your orders in as early as possible so that you’ll have what you need in time for the holidays. Here’s a look at just some of what Horror Decor has on their site:
If you have been following along with Daily Dead’s Holiday Gift Guide over the years, then you should be pretty familiar with Middle of Beyond’s killer selection of horror-themed merchandise. Here’s a look at some of MOB’s home-related wares:

If you did your best trick-or-treating between the 1950s and 1990s, you no doubt have especially fond memories of the Halloween "blow mold" decoration. We have taken the shapes behind some of the most recognizable blow molds, combined them with iconography of the Beistle® brand, and rendered them in miniature. The size makes them perfect to collect and display, and the battery-operated, LED format brings them to life with light at the click of a button. No plug required!
