Lord of the Rings Gifts
J.R.R. Tolkien is a legend. He laid the foundation for modern fantasy standards, starting with his classic novel, The Hobbit. To the unfocused eye, the book might just seem like a simple story of an adventure undertaken by a hobbit, a band of dwarves, and their wizard friend, but it was actually the spark. It was the spark that inspired the entire world of Middle-earth, one that flared into The Lord of the Rings stories. In a big way, it transformed the whole idea of fantasy literature! His concepts and groundbreaking writing in the realm of fantasy inspired countless pop culture phenomena, including the rise of Dungeons & Dragons, the flood of role-playing video games that we play, and even the sorcery and sword style movies that we watch. His writing inspired one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Led Zepplin! (Just in case you don't believe us, go listen to Ramble On again and REALLY listen to the lyrics.) Without Tolkien's works, we wouldn't have many of these things today. Can you even imagine that? A world without Tolkien—that means no Legend of Zelda, no Witcher series, and probably no tabletop RPG-style board game night! That's just not the kind of world we want to live in, so we're glad Tolkien churned out his amazing ideas.
It should come as no surprise that The Lord of the Rings is still one of the most popular books of all time to this day. If you know a fan that has a special day coming up, birthday or otherwise, then you might be thinking about getting them a Lord of the Rings gift. Well, then you've come to the right place! We're huge fans of The Lord of the Rings series, which is why we carry a great selection of Lord of the Rings gifts. From classic collectibles based on Tolkien's most iconic characters to some of the best Hobbit gifts on the web, we carry excellent gifts for anyone! This helpful guide will help you find the best gifts for Lord of the Rings fans. It might even inspire you to get a little something for yourself if you happen to be a Tolkien fan too.
Lord of the Rings Funko POP!
When thinking up ideas for gifts, one of the first things we also suggest are Funko figures. Funko is an awesome company that makes accessible collectibles that are great for both serious collectors and modest fans of Tolkien alike. They craft a wide variety of entry-level collectibles, including their Rock Candy and Dorbz figurines, and we recommend that you check out some of those options. But, we especially want to call out their most popular series, Funko Pop! figures. Their Pop! vinyl series has styles inspired by all of the most iconic movies and video games of the last century. That means you can get a figure from just about anything—from Marvel comic books characters to that obscure TV show that you love from
Lord of the Rings Collectibles
Funko figures are a great starting point, but you might be ready for something a little more substantial. You know, something with a bit more detail and wow factor! If you're shopping for a serious collector, then you might want to consider looking into our high-grade collectibles. That means looking into limited-edition statues, intricately detailed action figures, or even some movie replicas. We've got a great selection of all these things, so you can find something that will look great as the centerpiece of their Lord of the Rings collection. Check out some of our favorite picks below!
What do you think of when someone says the word "wizard”? You probably imagine an old fellow with a long, white beard wearing some robes and a pointy hat. Perhaps he's also carrying around a magical staff. Of course, you're picturing Gandalf in your mind. Tolkien's original depiction of the wizard has really shaped how our imagination sees the classic fantasy archetype. It seems like every other depiction of wizards (like Harry Potter's Albus Dumbledore and even Adventure Time's Ice King), take some notes from the iconic wizard. And when Peter Jackson transformed The Lord of the Rings series into a trilogy of movies and brought Gandalf to life on the big screen? Well, forget about it! Sir Ian McKellen's perfect portrayal of the character is now burned into all of our minds, and we think that's a good thing. We went ahead and gathered up some of our favorite collectibles based on the classic wizard. We carry several authentic statues, like our classic sitting Gandalf, to a version of the wizard riding on mighty Gwaihir. We also have movie replica props, like his pipe and his staff from the films. There’s something to please every Gandalf fan.
Lord of the Rings Action Figures
How about some action figures? There are people that like to think that action figures are nothing more than a children's toy, but these days, that's not actually the case! In fact, the kind of action figures we're talking about aren't meant for kids at all! When we're talking about action figures here, we're not talking about those ones you find in the toy aisle at your local department store. Instead, we're talking some heavy-duty action figures that are fit for adult collectors. We carry a ton of action figures for every fan. So, of course, we made sure to get plenty of ones based on all of our favorite movies, like the Avengers movies and even some Harry Potter ones. But the crowning jewel of our action figures? Well, it has to be our epic Lord of the Rings action figures. We carry figures based on all the characters, so you just need to select your favorite character! Any fan will love to display these proudly by their desk, but they're also great when you want to reenact your favorite scenes from the movies.
Lord of the Rings Novelty Gifts
Collectibles aren't for everyone. We know, we know. That sounds completely crazy, right? Well, we thought that everyone wanted to showcase their nerdy, goofy side proudly in their living, but it turns out that some fans do actually like things a little more subtle. We dig that too. That's why it might be good to have a simpler idea when selecting a Lord of the Rings gift. You may want to consider some of our novelty gifts based on Tolkien's work. Our novelty gifts include a large variety of items that can fit into facets of everyday life. Whether you want to get some cool office supplies or simple apparel, our Lord of the Rings novelty gifts are the perfect option for any casual fan who doesn't want to bolster up a collection! We carry pins, which are a subtle way to represent Middle-earth style. We also sell things like scarves, some of which feature maps to help navigate on a journey to Mordor! You can also find notebooks to help your Lord of the Rings fan take proper notes in class or at work!
Lord of the Rings Costumes
Lord of the Rings Costumes (H2) If you're shopping for a true fan, like a fan that's in DEEP with Lord of the Rings, then it might be time for the next level-up of Lord of the Rings gift. Yes, it's time to help them become a part of the Tolkien world. We're suggesting that you get a Lord of the Rings cosplay outfit to help the fan in your life get the ultimate Lord of the Rings experience. We also specialize in costumes, so we carry a large number of outfits based on the film series—which range from accessories to help you craft a Gollum costume to full-on Gandalf costumes to indulge in your inner wizard. These LOTR costumes might not actually turn them into their favorite character, but it is a great way to help your Tolkien fan get a taste of that Middle-earth life. Now, this isn't the kind of gift you give just anyone! Make sure that they have an urge to get into cosplay, or that Halloween is soon approaching. And, at the very least, make sure to do a little legwork and figure out their size. Then, you can go ahead and get them a brand new costume to wear! We carry versions based on all of the best characters from the films.
Everyone dreams of being Gandalf. It's impossible not to imagine being him! From his very first mention in The Hobbit to his mighty return after facing off the Balrog and his near-endless catalog of magical spells, he truly is every young fantasy fan's idol! Heck, we've even tried our hand at summoning a fleet of Gwaihir…to varying degrees of success (our bird feeder might not be magical, but it attracted some sparrows once, so we're hoping to work our way up to Great Eagles in the near future). Well, with our Gandalf costumes, the LOTR fan in your life will get the opportunity to cosplay as the powerful wizard. We carry both realistic styles, perfect for conventions, along with some quick and easy versions that will have them dressed up as their favorite LOTR character in no time. Just remember, while some of these costumes may look ultra-realistic, none of them will actually grant them any magical powers.
Ah, yes! He's the elf that started it all. It's pretty easy to forget that before him, we had a much, MUCH different idea of what an elf looked like! Legolas basically inspired every elf ranger who's come after him. Link from the Legend of Zelda has strong similarities to Legolas, as do some of the elves of the popular Elder Scrolls video game series. The elves from Magic: The Gathering also draw inspiration from the Tolkien character. Well, for anyone who wants the chance to step into the shoes of an elf, we carry Legolas costumes! They're a simple recreation of his outfit in the Peter Jackson movies, so any fan will instantly recognize of the details in it. Of course, make sure your LOTR cosplay photo is outdoorsy, since everyone will be expecting him to weave through the woods like some sort of elf ranger!
Galadriel may have been the greatest elf that ever walked Middle-earth. She was beautiful, strong, and wise beyond her years (which is saying quite a lot since she's around 7,000 years old). If you know anyone who's ready to step into the role of the iconic elf ruler, then this Galadriel costume is the perfect opportunity for them. Just make sure she's ready for the responsibility of leading the elves in the big battles to come. It doubles as a great costume to wear to any Renaissance festival, so this Galadriel outfit will definitely get multiple uses!
Lord of the Rings Cosplay Accessories
Finally, in the realm of cosplay gifts, nothing beats a cool weapon. From the very second we laid eyes on Gandalf's sword in The Lord of the Rings movies, we just knew we had to have one of our own. We know that we're not the only ones, and that's why we carry a ton of cool toy and replica weapons from movies. We even have some pretty awesome replicas based on the weapons from Game of Thrones, but that's beside the point! When you plan on cosplaying, you're going to want to carry a few toy weapons along for the ride! Well, for Lord of the Rings fans, we have some pretty incredible prop weapon options, including Gandalf's signature sword, Glamdring, and the blade Legolas wielded when facing off against legions of Sauron's cronies. You also might want to add a wizard beard to that Gandalf costume if you want him to look the part!
