Game of Thrones Steins, Mugs and Glasses Make Great Gifts
Need Gift Ideas for Game of Thrones Fans?
As a big fan of the HBO series Game of Thrones, I love finding all the new, cool GOT merchandise that is out there for sale. And since my friends and family all know that I am a big fan, I end up getting a few different awesome items from them as gifts throughout the year.
Recently, I moved into a new apartment and that resulted in a bunch of my gifts being in the Game of Thrones home decor category. I had no idea how cool such a thing could be, and now I want to share some of that awesomeness with you by profiling my favorite items that were gifted to me.
The great thing about the items that I will be sharing below is that they are great for pretty much anyone. You can go with steins for those fans who enjoy drinking a little beer, coffee mugs for those who enjoy a warm beverage like coffee, hot cocoa or hot tea, and pint glasses for those who stick with mostly cold beverages.

Game of Thrones Steins Make Great Gifts!
Four Different Designs Currently Available!
Even though I am not that much of a beer drinker, I just love these beer steins! I actually ended up getting two of one of them, so I made it a pen holder on my desk at work. It looks great and I secretly think that all of my co-workers are jealous!
Now, as far I know, they are only making four of these right now and two of them have a black background and two of them have a gray background.

Personally, I prefer the gray ones because they seem to be a sturdier stein - more like the ones that you see in Germany. But don't get me wrong, the black ones that I have are also really nice. I am using one of the black ones as my pen holder.
When it comes to prices, they are close in price so you don't really save over getting one instead of the other. My suggestion, if you are buying for another fan, is to go with one of the black ones unless you know of a certain house that the person favors on the show.
At the time of writing this, they are running $20 for one or $35 for two. So, if you are also a fan you can get one for you and one for a gift and save!
Game of Thrones Coffee Mugs: Good For Your Hot Beverages
Will it be House Stark or House Targaryen?
Personally, I am more of a coffee and hot tea drinker than beer, which is probably why I ended up with several of these mugs as Christmas gifts this past year!
The coffee cups are just your basic size mugs, so nothing fancy about that. They do have a design on each side and there are two different designs, or houses, that you get to choose from when you buy one of these.
With these, you get to choose from either:
--House Stark coffee mug (black, gray, white)
--House Targaryen coffee mug (black, red, white)

The price is around $12 for a single mug and there is not a discount when you buy both of them. Overall though, I think that this is a pretty cheap gift idea for Game of Thrones fans, especially since you can pair it with something else if so desired.
Game of Thrones Pint Glass Set For Cold Beverages
my favorite of all the cheap gift ideas!
The perfect choice for anytime, especially if you are not sure if the person you're buying for drinks coffee or beer, is this pint glass set.
Pricing is about average for what you see for any novelty or specialty pint glass set. For the two pack set, the cost is $20, which is not a bad price at all. There are two different sets for you to choose from too! You can opt for:
-- Houses Stark & Baratheon
-- Houses Lannister & Targaryen
Game of Thrones Pint Glass SetMORE INFO
For me, I prefer drinking out of glass instead of plastic due to BPA concerns, so these are extra great for that reason. Sometimes when you get a pint glass it feels very lightweight and is not a very thick glass. I hate those kind because they are more prone to breaking if you accidentally drop them. Fortunately, these glasses are heavy duty ones that you see with most high quality pint glasses.
Bonus Gift Idea: Game of Thrones Coasters
perfect addition to any other gifts!
As a bonus, I want to add an awesome cheap Game of Thrones gift idea for people who might be on a tight budget, are looking for cheap stocking stuffers, or just something small and inexpensive to go with other gifts.
These beverage coasters are awesome because each one is different and they are a quality, cheap gift. You get four in each set and they are made of quality cork and not some cheap material. The four coasters are one each for:
-- House Targaryen
-- House Stark
-- House Baratheon
-- House Lannister
