9. A Supernatural body pillow or frisky pillow case for holding onto the Winchester brothers ever so tightly.,

Promising Review: "Absolutely beautiful poster of Middle Earth. The image on Amazon is extremely close to what you get — excellent coloring, (especially the red lettering throughout), and everything including small detail is incredibly sharp. Paired this with a nice distressed-wood frame and I couldn't be a happier LOTR fan!" —Ron
