Dalek Mr. Potato Head

Mr. Potato Head is a classic, iconic toy. "Doctor Who" is a classic, iconic TV series. Combine the two and you get this, a build-your-own Dalek kit with a plastic potato for a base.

Funko Pop! Doctors

No matter which Doctor is your companion's favorite (we love the David Tennant's Tenth, shown here with his own severed hand), Funko has you covered -- the company makes its popular Pop! vinyl figures for each of the twelve.

You can find the figures at the BBC Shop for $10.98, and likely anywhere else Funko Pop! vinyls are sold.

Deluxe Blue Dalek Talking Plush

Extermination has never been so plush and cuddly! This 15-inch plushie speaks two different phrases when you squeeze him: "Exterminate! Exterminate!" and "You would make a good Dalek."

You can buy the Deluxe Blue Dalek Talking Plush (also available in red) at the BBC Shop for $63.98, though you may be able to find it much cheaper on Amazon.

You can find the Tardis Lego set at Target.com for $53.

'Doctor Who' Monopoly

Rather than the traditional Atlantic City street names, the properties in this Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Collectors Edition Monopoly are named after iconic "Doctor Who" episodes.

Its tokens, too, have a Whovian flair: the sonic screwdriver, the Seventh Doctor's umbrella, the Second Doctor's recorder, the Fifth Doctor's celery, the Eleventh Doctor's bow tie and the Fourth Doctor's scarf.

You can find this game, along with the Monopoly: "Doctor Who" Villains Edition, at GameStop for $19.97.

Sonic screwdriver pizza cutter

In the series, The Doctor's sonic screwdriver has many functions: It empowers The Doctor to control or disable machines, provide geolocation, burn things and screw screws. One thing it doesn't do, though, is cut pizza...until now.

This pizza cutter, modeled after the Eleventh Doctor's version, is available on ThinkGeek for $10.

9 of 20 BBC Shop

Lidded Tardis coffee mug

If you're looking for a "Doctor Who" mug, there are no shortage of options available. Our favorite of the bunch, though, is this 15-ounce Tardis mug with a removable lid.

You can find it at the BBC Shop for $22.98. A silver 50th anniversary version is available for $34.98.

You can find the "Doctor Who:" Mini ornament set at the BBC Shop for $17.98.

Tardis with wreath ornament

You can find them at the BBC Shop for $11.98 each.

12 of 20 Hot Topic

'Doctor Who' cookie cutters

Oh, I'm sorry, are you still making cookies in the shape of trees, stars and gingerbread men? Forget that. This year, bring some sweet, Who-themed cookies to all your holiday events.

13 of 20 ThinkGeek

Adipose stress toy

Let's face it, everyone could use a little bit of stress relief during the holiday season. This officially licensed, human-fat-inspired, sentient stress ball melts tension away after a few not-so-gentle squeezes.

You can find this bouncy baby boy on ThinkGeek for $25.

Weeping Angel earrings

No one will dare look away from these French-hook style earrings. Or else.

They're only $7.49 at ThinkGeek, making them an excellent stocking stuffer.

15 of 20 ThinkGeek

The Fourth Doctor's scarf

The Fourth Doctor is almost synonymous with ridiculously long multicolored scarves. With this 12-foot worsted weight yarn scarf from ThinkGeek, all the Time Lords on your gift list can match Tom Baker's classic '70s style.

You can find the Fourth Doctor's scarf at ThinkGeek for $50.

16 of 20 Hot Topic

'Doctor Who' coloring book

Like bowties, glasses and fezzes, adult coloring books are cool. This 96-page book (with 45 pages to color) features many of the series' iconic Doctors, scary (and cheesy) aliens and more.

You can find it online at Hot Topic for $10.49.

17 of 20 ThinkGeek

Tardis fleece throw blanket

When it's cold outside, The Doctor can simply transport himself to a place that's much warmer. This 50-by-89-inch Tardis throw blanket is a lower-tech solution for the rest of us.

You can find this 100 percent polyester fleece throw at ThinkGeek for $30.

18 of 20 Penguin

'Doctor Who:' 12 Doctors of Christmas

'Doctor Who' Christmas specials gift set

The Christmas season just isn't complete without carnivorous snowmen and a horde of murderous Santas.

'Doctor Who:' '50 Years in the Tardis' vinyl box set

Music is a huge part of the "Doctor Who" experience. This limited edition, 4-disc set features 50 tracks from the series 50-plus-year run, including the various themes and a previously unreleased track. The only catch: You may need a Tardis of your own to find a turntable.

You can find the set in metallic silver vinyl at ThinkGeek for $70.
