Gifts for Hobbit Fans
Having read J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit many years ago, no-one is more delighted than me that at last a movie has been made of the book.
Alongside the film release are loads of Hobbit merchandise for sale. From books through to blankets, and everything in between, there are all sorts of Hobbit accessories for sale.
Everyone loves The Hobbit, and anything related to it. This is why I have put together a guide to gifts for Hobbit fans everywhere, of any age.
You are sure to find something that will be just perfect for your loved one.
Such is the popularity of The Hobbit, that many people will simply love gifts that have anything Hobbit on them, even if they have not yet read the book nor seen the movie.
Let’s have a look at the wide range of gifts for Hobbit fans available.
The Hobbit (movie tie-in)
Even those of us who have read the book, will enjoy a new copy to re-read and re-freshen long ago memories.
The Hobbit is the type of book that can be enjoyed again and again.
For this reason, giving the gift of the book to anyone of reading age is a super idea. If they haven’t yet read it, they will love it, and if they have read it, they will still enjoy reading it, especially if it has been many years since the last time.
The Hobbit is available in hardback, paperback, audiobook and Kindle edition.
Boxed Set Complete Hobbit and Lord of the Rings
This will make super gifts for Hobbit fans everywhere. I can't remember the order I read them in, but The Hobbit is certainly much easier to read and follow than the the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy.
For this reason, you may find younger members of your family will prefer reading The Hobbit, even if they struggled with the Lord of the Rings.
It really is a lovely book, that will almost certainly set your young one on a path for life with a thirst for reading matter.
The Original Hobbit Book (same cover that was on it when I read it many years ago)
Glancing through the virtual aisles at Amazon, I immediately recognized the cover of the original Hobbit book.
And what a wonderful cover it is, with snow covered green and blue mountain peaks.
It is also possible to buy First Edition collector's copies through various sellers in this link, and that would make the perfect gift for book lovers.
Hobbit Toys and Games
The three examples shown on the right here are just a small sample of the huge collection of Hobbit Legos available over at Amazon.
These Legos make great gifts for Hobbit fans of the younger generation.
Each contains mini or even micro figurines, all the accessories you would ever need to build them, and of course instructions.
Hobbit Legos bring the characters to life, and encourages interactive play, imaginative scenarios and simply hours of fun.
Recommended for all children aged 8 - 14, you will simply not go wrong choosing Hobbit Legos as gifts.

- Thorin Okensheild
- Legolas Greenleaf
- Grinnah the Goblin
3.75" collector figurines are also available.
Suitable for age 4 and above, these replicas are crafted directly from the movie characters and are replicated in every way. Not really designed for playing with, these figures are designed for collectors and will one day be worth a lot of money if kept in perfect condition.
Who could resist the Hobbit Plushies?
Especially the Gollum one shown here! what an ugly crittur...sssss!
Hobbit plushies are designed for aged 3 and up, and stand 7" tall.
Perhaps Gollum might be a bit frightening for a 3 year old, but the other Hobbit characters are adorable as plush dolls.
- Bilbo Baggins
Hobbit plushies are designed to be soft and cuddly, and are forever reminders of this wonderful J.R.R Tolkien magical story.
Not only that, but they make super gifts for Hobbit fans.
Bag End Door Pendant
This beautiful sterling silver pendant and chain necklace features a perfect replica of the door to Bag End, the home of Bilbo Baggins.
Like in the book or the movie, the door is painted green with a brass knocker positioned right in the middle.
It even features the runes left by Gandalf on the top right of the porthole door.
The is one of the prettiest gifts for Hobbit fans around, so snap it up now before they are sold out.
Available for both Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins, these Hobbit blankets come in the form of comfy throws that you can just throw on over your clothes for some extra warmth in the winter when lounging around the house.
They come in just the one size - adult - and it is a one-size-fits-all, so should suit just about everyone, male or female.
With baggy sleeves, these throws can just be thrown on any old way, and will keep you snug as a bug inside, no matter the weather. These throws will make great gifts for Hobbit fans who live in areas where the winters are cold.
