Finding Xmas presents for your friends and loved ones can be a pain sometimes and the risk of getting stressed out and gradually turning into The Grinch is pretty high! And that would suck as you’d be killing the Christmas spirit… kind of defeating the whole purpose of getting gifts in the first place right?!? It should be a pleasure and a way to show your dear ones that you care and thought about them – not a dreadful task you can’t wait to get done with.
Luckily if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a TV series and movie lover, the hunt for it could be easier than you think (and quite fun thanks to the variety of fan merch that exists out there…)
My personal suggestion is not to stress worrying about sizes or “right fits” and to play it safe with these (and more) homeware gift ideas for a TV show and Film nerd – including Funko POP!s, home decorations, posters, doormats, pillows, lamps, accessories and MORE!
I’ve picked a selection of my favourite items from some of the cult TV programs and big screen classics and must sees!
Let’s start with gift ideas for a TV series addict:
The trailer for Stranger Things S3 went live a few days ago and we know that “in the summer of 1985, the adventure continues” – but here we literally can’t wait for summer 2019 to see what’s happening next to Eleven and the rest of the Hawkins’ gang.
This Xmas you can ease the pain of the wait for a Stranger Things fan by gifting them one of the following items/must haves:
Demogorgon (chase edition possible) Funko POP – Vinyl figure 428 / Damn Good Babysitter – Steve Harrington poster / Steve with bandana Funko POP – Vinyl Figure 642
Coffee and Contemplation mug / Stranger Things: Music from the Neftlix Original Series – Vinyl (2 LP) / Friends don’t lie mug
THE WALKING DEAD
The Walking Dead is one of those TV series that you either LOVE or HATE and don’t want to invest time on.
I am personally fully addicted to it and I’ve been faithful to the show despite the ups and downs of some episodes/seasons and the fact that they keep killing all my favourite characters 🙁 (even if they’re alive and well in the comics – RIP Carl).
If you know someone who’s as passionate about this show as me these items are going to make a killer present:
Negan’s Lucille – take it like a champ baseball bat / TWD Monopoly
Negan & Rick blanket / Walker Hand mug
Supernatural is a GREAT show. No wonder it’s still going after 14 seasons (yeah FOURTEEN – not a typo instead of a 4 or a 10). The recipe of the show includes all you need for it to be a success: humour, drama, intensity, passion, suspense and just to make everything even better it has 2 extremely handsome main characters (raise your hand if you have a crush on Dean Winchester <3)… Supernatural just has it all!
So if you’re looking for a gift for a fan of the Winchester brothers’ adventures you’re in the right place:
Sam and Dean – heat change mug / Anti Possession – Set of 2 pillow cases
Supernatural – slippers / Castiel – stuffed figurine
Possibly one of the funniest TV series EVER, FRIENDS is an absolute evergreen – and thanks to Netflix and the 90s nostalgia there’s now a huge hype around it, giving us the chance to put our hands on some great merch!
Show your friends that you’re always there for them with one of these awesome presents:
Joey Tribbiani Funko POP! – Vinyl Figure 701 / How you doin’? – mug / Friends logo – socks
GAME OF THRONES
So, winter is here… but ironically we have to wait until April 2019 for the final season of GOT! Whether your friend is rooting for house Stark, Targaryen, Lannister or Tyrell (or the Night King… why not?) to be sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of everything, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect gift for them here. Just a little something to help them get through winter and keep the hype up until the long awaited S9XE01 airs:
House Stark – Baking Mould / House Targaryen mug / Night’s Watch beer jug
Stark, Targaryen, Lannister, Tyrell sigils shot glasses set
RICK AND MORTY
Rick and Morty is without a doubt one of the most disturbing and yet brilliant TV series out there – big fan! Extremely clever in its borderline nonsense, Rick and Morty gives space and freedom to a huge selection of crazy and outrageous merchandise.
If your friend or loved one has picked up lots of random catch phrases like “it’s time to get schwifty” or “wubba lubba dub dub” or “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, biatch!” or they keep screaming “Pickle RIIIIIIICK” – then you have no choice but to get them a Rick and Morty Xmas gift, whether it makes sense to you or not:
Portal blanket / Get Swhwifty door mat / Get Schwifty hip flask
Pickle Rick Funko POP! – Vinyl Figure 333 / Meeseeks – Gift Box
You can find more TV series merch here – including great series like Breaking Bad, Doctor Who, Outlanders, Riverdale, Sons of Anarchy, Star Trek Discovery etc.
Not so much into TV series? No problem, let’s talk about some of the most popular movies out there!
THE LORD OF THE RINGS
One of my favourite film series without question is The Lord of the Rings – thanks J. R. R. Tolkien for writing this masterpiece <3 and to the casting director for picking Orlando Bloom as Legolas!
This Xmas give a precious gift to a Lord of the Rings fan:
One Ring – mug set / You Shall Not Pass – door mat / Elrond Funko POP! – Vinyl Figure 635
Do I even have to sell it to you? Deadpool is simply brilliant and any fan of the movies/comics surely has a great sense of humour… so why don’t you spice things up a bit and go for a fun gift like one of these? Ryan Reynolds would approve:
Deadpool – wall clock / Deadpool – Camble guy mobile holder / Cheerleader Deadpool Funko POP! – Vinyl figure 325
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Finding a gift for a fan of these brilliant Marvel movies/comics is pretty easy. I’m only going to say one word… GROOT.
No come on, I’m only joking (or am I?)… Our huge Guardians of the Galaxy merch range include other awesome items without solely focusing on the cutest tree ever:
Awesome Mix – door mat / Groot – cable guy mobile holder / Awesome Mix Vol. 2 LP
Jason Momoa as Aquaman was surely an interesting casting decision, “slightly” differing from the comic character, but it surely paid off! Surprisingly I don’t see Khal Drogo while looking at Momoa’s great performance and James Wan did an incredible job. It’s been interesting to see him directing something different and stepping away from horror movies for the first time in a while.
A fan on the Aquaman comics and movie (or actor :P) is going to love any of these:
NYCC 2018 – Arhur Curry Funko POP! – Vinyl Figure 243 / Aquaman Poster / Aquaman Logo socks
I’m a BIG Star Wars geek and I love everything Darth Vader – so getting a Xmas present for me is really not that hard (just in case my Secret Santa is reading LOL). We have a HUGE selection of merch that is going to make any fan of the saga happy – whether they’d join the Dark Side or stick with the Jedi.
From adorable (but slightly annoying) Porgs, to all your favourite droids and more:
Darth Vader – A6 notebook / Lenticular Clock /
Yoda neck pillow / Porg oven glove set
You can of course find more movies and film series merch here – including awesome movies like Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, Jurassic Park, The Grinch, IT, Gremlins, Minions, and a HUMONGOUS selection of Disney, DC and Marvel movies…
