Well, it’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for our round-up of the ten coolest fantasy-themed gifts for your wish lists this Christmas! Yes, I know it’s probably too late to order any of these in time for Christmas. No, I don’t feel bad for that. Yes, you may buy all of these gifts for me as a way of showing that you forgive me.
#1 – Game of Thrones Dragon Eggs Collectible Set
Perhaps one of the most awesome things I’ve seen this year. You can now actually own Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon eggs and mooch around your living room naked, pretending you’re the goddamn Mother of Dragons or something!
Alternatively, you could pretend you’re Eragon. Yeah, not as exciting is it?
#2 – ‘Trust Me, I’m the Doctor’ T-Shirt
Paired with some tan shorts and a pair of sandals, this is a Doctor that just doesn’t care. Like some sort of cross-breed of DCI Gene Hunt and Noel Gallagher, this could be the grittiest Doctor yet!
‘Trust me, love, I’m the Doctor. Where’s that bloody cup of tea?’
#3 – ‘Feel the Force’ Self Stir Mug
‘What? Why do my powers only work on hot beverages? Err… didn’t you know that a Sith’s greatest weakness is tea that whizzes round really fast? Yeah…’
#4 – Lovecraftian Darwinism T-Shirt
And it’s kind of terrifying. *Gulp*
#5 – Eolian Talent Pipe Brooch Pin
Who the hell needs musical talent when you can just buy your way into the Eolian? Take that, Kvothe!
#6 – Orcrist Full Size Prop Replica
One of the best things on this list, hands down. A real, full-size replica of Orcrist, the famed sword of Thorin Oakenshield.
Now all you need to do is hire a troupe of dwarfs, abduct your Grandpa from the old folks’ home and find a kid with hairy feet and you’re well on your way to real-life fantasy adventure!
#7 – Discworld Ales
Discworld. Ales. That is all you need to know.
#8 – Electric DeLorean
Just one of the exciting conversations you and your friends will have if you lay down £70,000 for this bad boy. Oh, didn’t I mention that? £70,000!
It has free delivery, though.
#9 – ‘There and Back Again…’: An Adventure Journal
If you have kids, make sure you get them into Lord of the Rings at an early (still impressionable) age. Then one Christmas, crack out this journal and a smoking pipe and put a cheap gold ring in their Christmas stockings.
‘What, Dad, we have to carry the ring to the fires of Mount Doom? Really?‘
‘Yes indeed, and you’ll need to be gone for at least… oh I don’t know… six hours? At least until the Doctor Who Christmas Special is finished. Yes…’
A guaranteed peaceful Christmas Day.
#10 – Rivendell Environment Miniature (Weta)
Straight from the geniuses at Weta Workshop in Hobbit Country (sometimes known as New Zealand), this is a detailed replica of the environment miniature that was used in the filming of The Lord of the Rings.
There are plenty of other locations available too, such as Orthanc and Bag End. Awesome, right?
Well, hopefully you guys enjoyed this awesome run-down of Fantasy-themed Christmas gifts.
