Picking out the perfect gift for a Dragon Ball Z fan can be a bit daunting if you’re not a fan yourself. You probably don’t remember the time that Perfect Cell absorbed Android 18, or that one time when Vegeta had that big “M” on his forehead because he aligned himself with Majin Buu and Babidi. Rest assured that we’ve done our homework and we’ve watched every episode of Akira Toriyama’s anime series. From the day Goku met Bulma, all the way until Super Saiyan Blue faced off against Goku Black in his Super Saiyan Rose form. If of that sounded ultra-confusing gibberish, then don’t worry about it. We’re going to help you select the perfect gift, even if you don’t know much about the series at all. We’ve got a whole list of items that are great no matter what your budget happens to be, whether you’re just a secret Santa for that anime-lover at the office, or if you really want to get something special for a hardcore DBZ fan.
Dragon Ball Z POP Vinyls
Kid Goku POP Vinyl - Shop Piccolo POP Vinyl - Shop Bulma POP Vinyl - Shop
Frieza POP Vinyl - Shop Trunks POP Vinyl - Shop Goku POP Vinyl - Shop
Let’s start with basic, wallet-friendly DBZ gifts. Funko has been a go to brand when it comes to affordable collectibles. Their POP vinyl line of toys features characters from just about every single video game, TV show, and movie, so it’s a quick and easy choice as a budget friendly gift. And you’d better believe that they’ve created a line of Dragon Ball Z POP vinyls. We carry all the popular characters, like Goku, Vegeta and Frieza. Unfortunately, they haven’t made a Yamcha is Dead POP vinyl, but cross your fingers and they may just make him in the future. These make for an excellent gift if you’re looking to get an easy gift that’s also quite affordable. Of course, make sure you figure out their favorite character before you get one. Goku is always a solid choice though.
Dragon Ball Z Mugs

Mecha Frieza vs Trunks Mug - Shop Goku vs Vegeta Mug - Shop Gohan vs Super Majin Buu Mug - Shop
Whether it’s a steaming hot cup of tea, a robust cup of coffee, or a healthy dose of orange juice, everyone has a morning elixir they drink to get through the day. Even Korin fills his cup up with a big serving of Sacred Water. If you have a DBZ fan in your life, then there’s no better way to intake that liquid than with action packed excitement of Goku, Vegeta, and the whole Z Fighter crew. The great thing about these mugs is that they’re also a budget friendly gift idea, so you don’t have to break the bank to get a cool gift. We have plenty of different options to choose from, including a 6 piece set with tiny mugs that look like a Dragon Ball. Finding some of Korin’s Sacred Water to put inside of it? Well, you’re on your own for that one.
Dragon Ball Z Bags
Goku Backpack - Shop Goku Symbol Wallet - Shop Goku Symbol Messenger Bag - Shop
Son Goku Messenger Bag - Shop Goku Lunch Bag - Shop Goku Hooded Backpack - Shop
Do you know a Dragon Ball Z fan that’s always on the go? Then they could probably use a good satchel. After all, how are they going to carry around all their Senzu beans, or their Dragon Radar with them? Okay, so maybe people outside of an Akira Toriyama anime series aren’t walking around with a pocketful of beans all day, but chances are that the DBZ fan in your life has books, devices, games, or other must-have stuff that they need to tote around. Our Dragon Ball Z backpacks and bags are the perfect thing for them to carry on their real life adventures, even if their adventures are only taking them to the coffee shop on the corner of the street and not sending them off to a journey to Planet Namek.
Dragon Ball Z Apparel
Goku Symbol Beanie - Shop Goku Mark Belt - Shop Goku Baseball Cap - Shop
Frieza Elite Hoodie - Shop Goku Bath Robe - Shop Over 9000 T-Shirt - Shop
Everyone has to wear clothes; it’s the unfortunate truth of the world, but hey, if you got to wear them, you may as well be representing the characters you know and love. We take our DBZ gear pretty seriously, since each special occasion requires the perfect Dragon Ball Z wear. Chilly outside? Then you can get your DBZ fan a nice beanie and a Frieza hoodie to keep warm. Sunny outside? Then get your fan a baseball cap to stave off the sun’s rays. Pants always falling down? Then get a Goku belt for them. Always walking around nude after a shower? Then get them a Goku bathrobe that makes them look like master of the Turtle Hermit style. And everyone loves a shirt that has a power level that’s over 9000, except Vegeta, who smashes expensive devices when he witnesses power levels over 9000. (It’s probably not wise to get Vegeta any of our t-shirts as a gift.)
Dragon Ball Z Collectibles
Tamashii Nations Piccolo - Shop Tamashii Nations Goku - Shop
Bandai Super Saiyan Blue - Shop Dragon Ball Z Cookie Jar - Shop Bandai Super Saiyan Goku - Shop
Some favor quality over quantity. It’s like, would you rather have a bunch of Saibamen on your side, or one Super Saiyan? No contest! You’d want to Goku on your side. These DBZ collectibles are the same. High quality collectibles are a great gift idea for any DBZ fan who needs a little more oomph in their licensed memorabilia. Action figures are great, since they evoke the fond memories of being a child, except these ones are crafted with an intense amount of detail and are made more for displaying that playtime. The 4 Star Ball cookie jar can be used to store snacks, or as a key piece in any collection.
