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 that sounded ultra-confusing gibberish, then don’t worry about it. We’re going to help you select the perfect Dragon Ball Z birthday gift, even if you don’t know much about the series at all. We’ve got a whole list of Dragon Ball Z merchandise that is 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 Action Figures
|Imagination Works Goku Action Figure||S.H. Figuarts Piccolo Action Figure||S.H. Figuarts Captain Ginyu Action Figure|
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 have Goku on your side. These DBZ action figures 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 posing and displaying than playtime. Given the amount of action in this anime TV series, you'll have plenty of poses to try out with your Dragon Ball Z action figures!
Dragon Ball Funko POP!
|Goku & Nimbus Funko POP!||Piccolo Funko POP!||Vegeta Funko POP!||Majin Buu Funko POP!|
|Master Roshi Funko POP!||Kid Buu Funko POP!||Videl Funko POP!||10" Shenron Dragon Funko POP!|
Let’s include some basic, wallet-friendly DBZ gifts. Funko has been a go-to brand when it comes to affordable collectibles and gifts. 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 for geeks. And you’d better believe that they’ve created a line of Dragon Ball Z POP! vinyls. We carry all the popular Dragon Ball Z characters, like Goku, Vegeta and Picclo. These make some of the best cheap gifts for nerds that love DBZ. Of course, make sure you figure out their favorite character before you get one. (Goku is always a solid choice though!)
Dragon Ball Z Clothing
|Adult Dragon Ball Z Collector Box||Dragon Ball Z Polo Shirt||Adult Goku & Vegeta Long-Sleeve Shirt|
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 Dragon Ball merch pretty seriously, since each special occasion requires the perfect Dragon Ball Z apparel. Chilly outside? Then you can get your DBZ fan a nice hoodie along with socks and a collector's box. Sunny outside? Then get your anime fan a bright orange polo shirt. 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 Merch for the Home
|Goku Blanket||Dragon Ball Z Pint Glass Set||Kame House Cookie Jar||Dragon Ball Lamp|
|Goku Spirit Bomb Plasma Light||Dragon Ball Teapot Set||30 oz Dragon Ball Z Travel Mug||Dragon Ball Z Mug and Coaster Set|
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 the action-packed excitement of Goku, Vegeta, and the whole Z Fighter crew. Finding some of Korin’s Sacred Water to put inside of it? Well, you’re on your own for that one. At least coffee can still make you feel like a Super Saiyan! What if you're looking for some fun lighting solutions or perhaps some munchies and a blanket for watching your favorite anime shows? Try out a Kame house cookie jar, or perhaps light up your room with Goku's spirit bomb. (Just remember not to make a habit out of talking to your food!)
Other Dragon Ball Z Gift Ideas
|Dragon Ball Z Power Up Board Game||Capsule Corp. Backpack||Dragon Ball Z Umbrella||Dragon Ball Plush Bag|
|Dragon Ball Z Crystal Dragon Ball Collector Set||Dragon Ball Z Collector Box||4" Dragon Ball Rumbling Plush||Dragon Ball Z Clue Board Game|
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, whether they're at an anime convention or out on the town. Our DBZ backpacks and bags are the perfect things 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 on a journey to Planet Namek. If you're looking to bring some DBZ adventures inside your home, perhaps you're looking for some Dragon Ball Z board games! You can find a DBZ version of clue, as well as an original Power Up board game. However, don't forget about other Dragon Ball toys and gifts. We hope you find the perfect gift for your Dragon Ball fan!
Hopefully, that list gave you a few good ideas to start from, but you can check out our full list of Dragon Ball Z gifts to find something special for the anime-lover in your life.
