We’re huge fans of horror movies, TV series, books and video games, so it should come as no surprise that our desks are covered in horror figures—along with other pop culture gifts. (Pennywise and the Demogorgon and Aliens, oh my!) From frightening to downright spoopy, let’s take a look at some of our favorite horror action figures, horror clothing and other scary gift ideas so you can cater to your horror-loving friends and family.

If you're looking more for horror clothing, you can find Stranger Things gifts like this colorful shirt. Also, who doesn't want a miniature Sheriff Hopper to hang in their home?

When people think about the world of horror, they tend to gravitate towards the big movies. But there are also horror TV shows and even video games loved by horror fans.
