Marvel fans come in all stripes. Whether they just recently got into superheroes because of the Marvel Cinematic Universe or have been devoted to Stan Lee’s comics for decades, there’s no shortage of cool Marvel gifts out there to help them celebrate their Marvel fandom.
Here are some of the best gift ideas for Marvel fans available this year.
Spider-Man Bluetooth Headphones – $29.99
If you’ve got a young Marvel fan on your list, these on-ear headphones will be one of the coolest gifts they get this season. The price is great, the ratings from buyers are remarkably high and the design style is trademark Spider-Man. They can be used wirelessly but also come with a cord for wired use if your little webslinger forgets to charge them.
Black Panther PJ Set – $22.99
You can find PJ sets for virtually all of the most popular Marvel characters, but this Black Panther one is pretty killer and comes in a wide variety of sizes. It’s 100% cotton but looks very close to T’Challa’s vibranium-mesh suit at a glance, thanks to some clever detailing in the print. Both the front and back are decorated and his signature claw necklace drapes around the neck.
Captain America Kids Adidas Sneakers – $45
If the hero-in-training on your list wants to follow Sam Wilson and become the next Captain America, these kicks are a good start. They’ve got the unmistakable Adidas stripes in bold red and feature a cartoony version of Cap himself against a blue background with white stars. Of course they’ve also got his iconic shield printed on them.
Spidey And Friends Hooded Jacket – $39.99
Disney Junior’s “Spidey and His Amazing Friends” is loaded with colorful style and this jacket brings that to real life. The appliques on the front look like patches and highlight some of the show’s lines and the main characters: Ghost-Spider, Spin and Spidey himself.
Spider-Man High-Tops – $24.99
Honestly, these shoes are pure drip. They’re high-tops with canvas dyed in Spidey’s signature colors and bright white rubber soles with the Marvel logo on the heels.
Avengers Sleeping Bag – $27.99
Black Panther, Captain America, Hulk and Iron Man adorn this sleeping bag, which comes with a drawstring sack for transport. This is a great option for kids’ slumber parties.
‘Avengers: Endgame’ Final Battle Lego Set – $69.97
Lego has put out some Marvel kits over the years that really bring the company’s most exciting stories right off the page (or screen). This 527-piece set lets you play out the intense final showdown from the MCU’s “Avengers: Endgame” and would be manageable for builders 8 and up.
The setting itself is cool, but the included minifigures are the real draw, as it comes with Black Panther, Captain America, Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Thor and the evil Thanos, among others. The van with the built-in time machine is another nice touch for lovers of the movie.
Avengers Tower Lego Set – $89.95
For an even more involved build, this 685-piece kit lets you construct one of the most iconic sights in the entire Marvel universe. Avengers Tower comes to life here in five-story form complete with seven rooms that pack in Lego versions of high-tech features shown on screen. Minifigs include Iron Man and two of his automated suits, Black Widow and the villainous Red Skull.
How To Draw Comics The Marvel Way – $10.71
The late, great Stan Lee himself wrote this instructional book in 1978, and it remains a must-have for comic lovers today. If you have someone on your list who loves to draw or has shown an interest in telling their own stories, this should be on their shelf. It’s nearly 200 pages long and teaches the reader everything from how to draw iconic Marvel characters to the lingo and layout used to put comics together. Basically, it’s the best textbook ever.
Marvel Apples to Apples – $12.05
Apples to Apples is a classic party game. The beauty of it is that anyone can play, since it’s based on opinions rather than trivia knowledge, and the instructions are easy to explain. This official Marvel edition doesn’t require deep knowledge of Marvel lore but will obviously be most fun for people who are fans.
Just be warned that some heated arguments might break out when the green card that reads “Overrated” is put on the table, asking players which characters fit that bill.
Collectible Figurine Set – $23.98
If you’ve got a Marvel fan on your list who doesn’t quite have the room for displaying a bunch of full-size action figures, these mini metal ones should do. The reviews are pretty much flawless, with buyers raving about how great they look and how sturdy they are. Twenty die-cast figurines are included in the collection. Among them are the Guardians of the Galaxy and fan-favorites from the Spider-Man universe like Carnage and Venom.
X-Men ‘92 Class Mug – $16.95
The X-Men have been a Marvel staple since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created them in 1963, but many fans of the mutant heroes especially love the gang from the early 1990s. The class of ‘92, which starred in the beloved “X-Men” animated series from that year, is plastered across this mug. Cyclops, Gambit, Storm, Wolverine and, of course, Professor X are all part of the scene, and ShopDisney lets you customize the mug by adding text.
Classic Wolverine Cufflinks – $70.99
The Wolverine so many X-Men fans adore, complete with his tall, pointy ears and sneer, finally captured in cufflnk form. They are a pricey gift option but would be a unique addition to the closet of any Marvel geek who is forced to dress up for work. The Marvel logo stamped on the back is also a strong touch.
M.O.D.O.K. Action Figure – $49.99
The Marvel Legends Series line of action figures from Hasbro has been widely acclaimed by collectors, and this one brings to life one of the company’s weirdest creations. Marvel Comics fans will remember the living computer known as M.O.D.O.K. from his epic battles with everyone from Captain America to Ms. Marvel to the X-Men. This freakish-looking villain would look awesome “hovering” on someone’s desk or in a display case.
Spider-Man Comic Rug – $67.78
This rug may not be everyone’s taste, but the 1978 cover of “The Amazing Spider-Man” makes it a choice pick for lifers. The back of the rug is canvas, so a non-slip rug pad is recommended to keep it in its place.
Groot Succulent Pot – $9.95
If you’ve seen the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and don’t have a soft spot for Groot, then you truly are a villain at heart. The Marvel fan who’s also a plant parent will enjoy this cute succulent pot. And if the GOTG fan you’re shopping for doesn’t keep succulents, it can also serve as a pen holder.
Iron Man Game Controller Holder – $20.99
On the Venn diagram of superhero fans and gamers, there is plenty of overlap. This comes in handy when you’re shopping and makes a gift like this unique and thoughtful. This 8-inch tall Iron Man figure will hold onto game controllers while they’re not in use, making it a functional addition to an entertainment center, as well as a cool piece of Marvel merch. If the fan on your list is more into Spider-Man, Best Buy has one of Miles Morales in his black suit.
Miss Minutes Wall Clock – $30.99
For the proud Variant in your life, this recreation of Miss Minutes from “Loki” Disney+ is sure to be a favorite. The anthropomorphic clock with a heavy Southern accent shows up in that series and immediately steals scenes from the God of Mischief. The wall-hanging clock is made of fiberboard wood and will catch the eye of any fellow MCU lovers who see it. It’s even got the slogan of the Time Variance Authority across the top: “For all time. Always.”
Avengers Fridge Magnet Set – $14.99
Not all Marvel gifts can be accurately described as “adorable,” but these little magnets definitely are. A dozen of the major players from the Avengers films are depicted in bright, colorful illustrations, with even a tough-looking Nick Fury among them.
Iron Man Wireless USB Mouse – $16.99
Some people are tough to buy for, but most of us could use a good wireless mouse in the era of remote work. This one is made to look like Iron Man’s helmet — with eyes that light up — and would’ve fit right into Tony Stark’s laboratory.
Infinity Gauntlet Bottle Opener – $14.99
Another gift that will please any Marvel fan is this cool bottle opener that looks like a mini Infinity Gauntlet. The person you get it for can feel like Thanos every time they open a beer, snapping the cap off with interstellar authority.
Marvel Periodic Table Of Elements T-Shirt – $22.99
Marvel’s take on the periodic table is a clever gift choice. The tee comes in a variety of color choices — from black to navy to heather blue — as well as a variety of sizes for adults and kids.
‘Eternals’ Urban Decay Eyeshadow Palette – $55.25
This eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay is inspired by Marvel’s “Eternals,” and the ratings from people who’ve used the set are high across the web. It packs in 15 different colors, ranging from emerald-like “Merciful” to metallic-blue “Soaring” to brick-red “Sonic Boom.”
‘I Have Issues’ Mug – $16.95
Just like the X-Men ‘92 mug, this one is customizable if you buy it from ShopDisney. It’s got a wrap-around print of vintage Marvel Comics covers with the message, “I Have Issues,” for all to see. You’ll catch glimpses of Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America around its banner.
Iron Man Sleeved Blanket – $29.95
This one is for the Marvel fan with a sense of humor. The Iron Man blanket will let the Marvel lovers live out their fantasy of wearing Tony Stark’s powerful suit while watching another episode of “Chicago Fire” on the couch.
Black Panther Silk Tie – $58.99
For those Marvel fans who wear suits, give them the power of Wakanda with this silk tie. It’s got the Black Panther mask dotting its silver base, making for a subtle look that won’t be too obvious unless someone gets close and knows what they’re looking at. ShopDisney also has a similar Captain America one which features his iconic shield patterned against navy blue.
