11 Great Gifts for Comic Book Lovers

So Christmas is just around the corner, and you need gift ideas for that best friend/brother/cousin of yours that absolutely is in love with comic books?

As a comic book lover myself, and the best friend of someone who's life is practically devoted to them, I've taken the initiative to put together a list of some of the best Christmas gift ideas for comic book nerds.

You simply can't go wrong with something from this list!

1. Super Hero in a Box

What's one thing that every aspiring superhero needs in their wardrobe? That's right, a cape! This Super Hero in a Box kit comes with a great 30" one-size-fits-all blue satin cape, wristbands, and a mask to keep your true identity under wraps. Help save the world in style!

2. Ouch! Comic Strip Bandages

Let's face it, saving crime isn't always exactly painless -- You're bound to get a few cuts and bruises along the way to serving justice, so why not cover them up with cool comic themed bandages?

3. Superhero Monopoly Board Game

Whoa, I didn't see this one coming! While I was going to suggest the idea of a Superhero Monopoly Board Game, I didn't expect for there to be so many different ones! Fantastic Four, Spider Man, Justice, League, and more... it's hard to choose just one! My personal favorite would definitely have to be the Marvel Comics Collector's Edition. It's so cool! I know what I'm getting myself for Christmas!

4. Superhero Shaped Rubber Bands/Sillybandz

These would make amazing stocking stuffers or mini-gifts for the superhero lover, especially if they're young kids. Why have boring old rubber bands when you can have rubber bands shaped like the Hulk?

5. Comic Photo Frame

Lighten up your living room with one of these super cool comic book layout photo frames! All you've got to do is add some crazy photos to highlight a great night out in the form of a comic book page. It even comes with a black ink marker pen and 45 thought bubble, narrative, and speech balloon stickers!

6. Super Hero Comic Book Postcards

See the iconic superheroes in the silver and golden age on these marvelous full-color postcards!

This would make a great gift for that person who collects rare or collectible postage supplies, like stamps! These postcards are 100% usable, but it's worth suggesting that they shouldn't be used! Keep these babies in a safe place, they might be worth a pretty penny some day.

7. DC/Marvel Pint & Shot Glasses

There are TONS of different superhero themed shot glasses & pint glasses to choose from -- so many, in fact, if I even tried to fit all the awesome ones into this list, the Internet might break (I really had to hold off with the Monopoly boards, too).

There's even Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ones as well! You can see a larger selection of the glasses by clicking through the Amazon link if you're up for it.

8. Comic Toilet Paper

Alright, let's be mature adults right now... actually, never mind. Being mature is too boring! Show your childish (or just plain old nerdy) side by keeping a roll of comic toilet paper in your bathroom, or maybe your guest bathroom as a great conversation piece.

9. Superhero Apron

Get back in the kitchen! Wait, wait -- get one of these aprons, first! You'll need something to shield you from the splashes of sauce while slaving over that stove, you know.

There's a good selection of superhero themed aprons to chose from -- Batman, Spiderman, Superman, Captain America, even a Superwoman one for the female comic book nerd in your life. These are just a couple of them.

10. Superhero Wallet

Who doesn't want to hold onto their money in style? If you're really having a tough time trying to figure out what to get that comic lover, then consider getting them a wallet.

There's tons of different wallets -- from old school comic book styled ones, to super hero ones, there's one for every comic lover. If your comic book geek is eco-friendly or quirky, there are even wallets made out of laminated paper.

11. Comic Book Encyclopedia

Every superhero has a detailed back story that often spans over many decades throughout the history of comic books, and the most high profile superheroes (Captain America, Superman, Batman, etc) have their own encyclopedias. If the person you're shopping for has a favorite superhero, then you can't go wrong with one of these.

Don't know what superhero they like, but have got an idea of which comic book publisher they prefer? There are also Marvel and DC encyclopedias, which span over their multiple superheroes and histories. These are often a better choice than an encyclopedia on a single superhero, since they include more than one!

Good ideas for Christmas presents. I like the comic toilet paper.
