Have a Marvel fan in your life? Never know what to get them because there’s too many items to wade through? You’ve come to the right place! Whether you have a certain Spidey-sense for gift-giving or you’re totally clueless, here’s 10 gifts that will make any Marvel fan happy this upcoming holiday season. And if you happen to find something for yourself… well, with great power comes great responsibility.
1. Marvel Encyclopedia ($25)
Whether for the hardcore Marvel fan or the up-and-coming one, this book has it all. This 432-page encyclopedia (yes, you read that right) has all the info you’d ever need about your favorite heroes and villains. Filled to the brim with facts you never knew and characters you’ll learn to love, this is really one of the best gifts out there for Marvel lovers.
Show some love with one of the most epic Marvel Cinematic Universe films to date. This movie raked in a ton of cash this year. And rightfully so– it’s one of the best of the decade. So many heroes, so little time.
3. Black Panther Funko POP! Figure ($9)
Black Panther made his big-screen debut in a big way with Civil War, and will get his own movie soon. This figure is the perfect little collectible for a fan of the character or of POP! figures in general. Plus, he’s a bobble-head. How much better can it get?
4. Iron Man 2 Poster ($9)
Have a friend or family member that loves Iron Man? Look no further. This poster’s design was featured in Iron Man 2 and is strikingly simple. Our favorite self-proclaimed “genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist” can hang right on your wall.
Ah, Deadpool. Our favorite anti-hero and avid breaker-of-the-fourth-wall. Deadpool surprised many people with how funny and inventive it was. Not only was this movie a huge smash this year, but it also became the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever. Take that, Francis.
6. Deadpool taco t-shirt ($9-18)
Why stop at the movie? This t-shirt is cartoonish, fun, and (reportedly) comfortable. Also, kids can actually wear this without their parents’ permission–as opposed to watching the movie without permission. This is a perfect gift for someone who loves to show their affinity for Deadpool and his antics.
7. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. mug ($12)
This mug is an easy way to make an everyday cup of coffee into an event that feels badass. Any fan of the Marvel Universe can appreciate this gift, whether they watch the show or not. I can practically see Nick Fury grimacing into this mug as he contemplates assembling the Avengers once again.
8. Spider-Man laptop decal ($8)
Have a Spider-Man fan in your life that needs some love? This simple and cool decal can go right on their laptop, Mac or otherwise. This is available in a variety of colors and sizes to fit the tastes of your friendly neighborhood fan. Go web go!
9. Captain America socks ($10)
You can’t go wrong with a good pair of socks, and these are no exception. Knee-high? Check. Awesome design? Check. Wings on the sides like Cap’s helmet? YES. These are an easy and fun gift to get for any #TeamCap person.
Have an extreme Marvel fan on your hands? This is the most up-to-date collection of Blu-rays from the MCU’s second phase. It includes Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man. In addition to all of the Blu-rays, there is a bonus disc with over 2 and a half hours of content. But that’s not all! There’s also a replica of the orb from GotG, with an Infinity Stone that lights up. It’s the ultimate gift for the fan that wants the most current movies out there.
Happy shopping, and here’s to hoping that your holidays are super!
