Lord of the Rings Gifts
10 Things to Consider When Buying Lord of the Rings Gifts
1. Turn something practical into something fun
Just about any item, you can think of, you can get a Lord of the Rings version.
Looking to buy a desk lamp for someone going off to college? Why not get them an Eye of Sauron lamp?
It still serves the purpose it needs to but is so much more fun (and is sure to be a conversation starter). Perfect!
2. Learn more about the series
Believe it or not, there is a lot involved in the creation of Lord of the Rings.
In addition to the trilogy, there are countless books that give more information into the world of Middle Earth and author J.R.R. Tolkien’s journey to create and really bring this world to life.
3. The Hobbit
Simple! In addition to the Lord of the Rings trilogy is the successful series The Hobbit.
From the book series itself to the movies, there is so much here to explore that gives more detail into the lives of the hobbits, in particular, Bilbo Baggins.
4. Get ready for game night
Games are always a great gift option as they allow multiple people to get in on the fun.
Lord of the Rings is the inspiration for numerous games, both ones where you can try and travel to Middle Earth and go on a mission, to trivia games that put your knowledge to the test.
Either way, game night is about to get a lot more fun!
5. Consider jewelry
Shopping for your wife, girlfriend, or sister? Why not get her a nice piece of jewelry that is inspired by Lord of the Rings?
There are actually a lot of beautiful pieces that are not at all corny.
While you might think that anything inspired by a movie would be tacky, in this case, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Intricate scrollwork designs or leave designs make for some intriguing, unique pieces that will make her feel just like Arwen!
6. Replicate the ring
We mentioned jewelry earlier, but this deserved its own section! Why not get a replica of the ring, the one ring to rule them all!
An iconic piece from the movie, who wouldn’t love having their own version to slip on?
There are cheaper versions if needed, or why not go for the full 14K gold version and really surprise the person you are giving the gift to? Precious, indeed!
7. Clothing is great
Clothing can make a great gift, and there are plenty of Lord of the Rings inspired fashions to choose from.
Whether you go more simple with a t-shirt or consider getting a replica cloak, you have a lot of options, all of which would make for a great gift for a true Lord of the Rings fan.
8. Go bold with weaponry
Lord of the Rings is remembered for many things, but some of the standout moments are all of the incredible battle scenes that take place over the course of the trilogy.
Why not get a replica sword or shield as a gift for a fan? This is a great way to remember the series and makes for some seriously cool artwork.
9. Find local events
Lord of the Rings has kept up an incredible amount of popularity, even though the movies came out years ago (and the books were released decades ago!).
As a result, there are plenty of meetup events to either dress like your favorite character, to go bar hopping, or for trivia night (just to name a few ideas).
Why not search for events in your area and surprise your friend or family member by signing you both up to attend.
Don’t just limit it to two people, consider getting a big group together and surprising the lucky person.
This is a great gift they are sure to love and really appreciate.
10. Movie night is always a great idea
Finally, when in doubt, give the gift of your time and offer to come over for movie night to watch the series!
Keep in mind, each of the movies is long, so getting through the entire trilogy is probably more of a weekend affair, but this makes for a great gift that will also serve as a lasting memory for you and the person you watch with.
