The Lord of the Rings is an amazing series that took place in the beginning of the 2000’s. It’s an epic adventure that follows a Hobbit from the Shire and his eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle-earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.
As any huge franchise would, The Lord of the Rings also became very popular. Therefore it resulted in a lot of merchandise – toys, posters, figurines, rings etc. Needless to say, all of these things would make a great gift for a real LOTR fan.
In this article, similar to the article Ultimate gifts for Star Wars fans, we’ve compiled a list of 10 gifts for the ultimate fan of The Lord of the Rings.
A cool watch with LOTR world map
A watch is a great gift idea either way. Of course it is much cooler if you give the person The Lord of the Rings watch. It will make sure they are always on time for important meetings, because who wouldn’t want to look at this fun watch?
This watch is made from a high quality quartz movement, silver stainless steel case, durable and scratch-resistant mineral crystal dial window, PU leather strap buckle. High hardness glass, stainless steel and waterproof case cover make this watch super durable for everyday use. And the soft leather strap provides a comfortable wearing experience.
Fun wooden spoon and spatula
If you’re looking for a great gift to a LOTR fan that also loves food and cooking, then this is the one. It’s a handmade set of a wooden spatula and spoon. The best part about these is their engraving that has been burned into wood.
These iconic kitchenware things are a perfect gift. A real LOTR fan will most likely be super happy, besides it’s always nice to receive a gift that you can actually use daily. These, in true LOTR fashion, will be used for preparing yummy food and eating it with great pleasure.
Lord of the Cats mug
A mug is a great gift because it most certainly will be used. Everyone usually chooses their mug – the most special one that they use daily. If you’re looking for a gift for somebody who loves LOTR and cats, this is a perfect combo.
This fun Lord of the Cats mug is a cute reminder of the amazing adventure series. Maybe not everybody would want to drink their morning coffee or tea from a mug that’s printed with the main characters. So this is an amazing option – replace them with cats and make them even more cute!
One Ring from LOTR
The most special gift of them all – The One Ring from the LOTR. This is an Original replica of the “Lord of The Rings” Ring. The ring is sharply engraved from the outside and from the inside. This could even be a great surprise for a wedding or engagement ring for true fans!
The inscription is pronounced: “Ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.” It translates to: “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”
Funny birthday card
If you already have a main gift and are just looking for something small to add to it, why not a birthday card? Of course, if the reason for gift giving is a birthday. If not – this card is universal enough so it can be gifted for any other occasion as well.
This is a card of Gandalf saying: ‘’A card is never early or late. It arrives precisely when it means to.’’ It’s a fun little something to add to your present and give it a The Lord of the Rings touch to it.
The Lord Of The Rings poster collection
The classic way to support your favorite music bands, movie actors and films is to put posters on your walls. Back in the day those were usually pretty straight forward ones, bright colors, close up faces etc. To sum up – not the most aesthetically pleasing posters. Not anymore.
Today posters are meant to fit greatly in your interior. This LOTR poster collection is not only meaningful but also pleasing to look at. It has muted tones in it so it’s not too bright or crazy. And the most important part – it represents the adventure of the three series that Hobbit went on to. This is a super cool gift idea!
The Lord of the Rings music box
A very unique gift idea we’ve found is a music box. This is a great gift for music lovers – it’s a wooden music box that is made to play one specific song of the series. There are wooden music boxes with the theme of Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and of course The Lord of the Rings, too.
There is no battery needed for this musical box since it will play by you turning the handle. It does not only bless us with the beautiful melody of The Lord of the Rings soundtrack but it is also beautiful to look at. Engraved and burned wood makes this musical box truly a masterpiece.
Vintage book set of LOTR and The Hobbit
For somebody who likes to read first and only then watch the series, do we have a great gift idea for that person. What if we said we could find original books of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit? They are pricey but to be honest – this find is worth it.
This is a complete set of Guild Publishing 1980s. It’s worth mentioning that these are incredibly popular as they are difficult to get ahold of. So hurry up if you’d like to get this as a gift for someone. It is a truly meaningful gift for a real LOTR fan!
Jigsaw Puzzle of LOTR Gate of Gondor
For anybody who loves solving puzzles and spending time training their brain, a jigsaw puzzle will be a great gift. And why choose a simple sunset or any view if you can gift them their favorite movie puzzle?
This Lord of the Rings puzzle consists of 1000 pieces so it won’t be an activity for an hour. It will most likely take a while. It could be a fun activity to do with your friends or family. And the end result – a cool puzzle of Gates of Gondor.
The Tolkien Collection of 9 candles
Sometimes there are fans that would buy every single piece of merchandise of their favorite movie they could possibly find. But sometimes there are also fans who don’t really need to get anything to show their support. This is a gift that won’t exactly scream LOTR but it has its own little touch of magic.
This is a set of 9 different soy candles – meaning they are natural and eco friendly. What makes them special is their scents and resemblance to the movie series. These 9 pure vegan-friendly soy wax candles have been scented with carefully selected fragrance oils to fully recreate Tolkien’s Middle Earth. How fun is that!
