Unique Gift Ideas for the Game of Thrones Fan
Everyone's Favorite TV Show at the Moment
I started watching HBO's Game of Thrones only when it hit the third season. I was pretty much oblivious to the whole TV series and it was only when my boyfriend started raving about how addictive the show was, I stood up and took notice. Now I am a true Game of Thrones fan. My personal favorite character in the show is Princess Arya. She has got spunk, that girl! Brave, witty, innocent, strong, sensitive all bundled into one.
I could go on and on talking about the show but this is not what this page is about. We are not here to rave about the show are we? But on the contrary, you might have landed here while searching for some unique gifts for your friend, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend or just about anyone you know who seems to be a big Game of Thrones fan.
Here are some of my personal favorite Game of Thrones gift ideas at the moment. Some of them are in my own personal wish list whereas some I plan to purchase for near and dear ones.
Daenerys Targaryen (the mother of dragons) was gifted dragon eggs shortly after her wedding to Khal Drogo. I fell in love with this collectible set as soon as I saw it. They would be perfect as a décor item and moreover the packaging is really appealing making it seem that they have been preserved from another era altogether. The best gift for a Daenerys fan or someone who is totally fascinated by magical beings. The box is made up of China fir wood with silk inner linings whereas the eggs are made up of resin. Dimensions are as follows: Box: 9.75" L x 4.0 " H x 5" D; Eggs: 3" H x 2.25" W.

Game of Thrones Weirwood Tree Snow Globe
You must be familiar with the unique trees shown in Game of Thrones. They sprawl across Westeros and are uniquely distinguished by their blood Red leaves and carved faces. This is the central piece of this beautiful snow globe - the Weirdwood trees. A single tree has been intricately and smoothly defined in the snow globe which makes it a beautiful and classy piece to show off in anyone's abode.

House Sigils on Crest Wooden Plaques
Does the recipient of your GoT gift favor any particular house? The Starks, Lannisters or Targaryens? If yes, why not get a wooden plaque with the house sigil on it. The Direwolf is the sigil for House Stark, the Lion that of House Lannister and the Dragon symbolizes House Targaryen. I love direwolves and Arya (not necessarily in that order) which is why I kind of prefer House Stark.
Trivia: Did you know that Sophie Turner (the actress who plays Sansa Stark in the TV series) adopted Lady for real after it 'died' in Game of Thrones?

If the recipient already owns the dragon eggs set but is still a huge fan of House Targaryen, you might consider getting them these miniature dragons. The eggs are done with, now bring on the dragons Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion! It will be a good addition to the eggs. You can even consider making a part of your room GoT themed and use these pieces to lend a difference to home décor without making it look overpowering. These miniature dragons are made out of resin and with such detailing that you can't help but admire the artwork.

This cold steel shield is an official Game of Thrones licensed product and comes with an embossed direwolf sigil. Needless to say, this particular piece is a class apart.

It would look absolutely stunning in a drawing room as a centerpiece on the wall.
