The Best Lord of the Rings Gift Ideas

Updated on October 1, 2014

You Can Have a Lord of the Rings Christmas in YOUR Shire!

With the arrival of the gift buying season, I know many people like myself set out on an adventure seeking the best Lord of the Rings gift ideas they can find for their family and friends. On this page, I have chosen gathered together SEVEN of what I think are the best LOTR gift ideas.


What Lord of the Rings Gift Ideas Did I Choose?

I have included two items that every fan should own -- a movie set and a book set. Once your fan has those items in his or her collection, he or she might like to add a collectible item like one of the fun and funky Funko plush series. True devotees will get hours of enjoyment out of a game like the LOTR trivia board game. Those who enjoy building with Lego will also receive hours of entertainment from a Lego set. If you are looking for a luxury gift item, you will not want to miss the custom-made Lord of the Rings 10k and 18k rings that I found on eBay. Finally, I finished off this list with a practical and affordable gift-giving idea that is suitable for almost anyone, a t-shirt.

I know that, if you are shopping for a fan or if you are a fan yourself of the Lord of the Rings, you will find a gift idea here on this page.

The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Extended Edition

True fans must own all of the movies, preferably on blu-ray disc.

If your Lord of the Ring fan has not upgraded to the blu-ray movies yet and owns a blu-ray player, he or she should definitely consider the The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Extended Edition blu-ray boxed set. It's a boxed set no fan should be without!

Buy The Books From Amazon

You can click through to Amazon to read more about any of the products on this page without any obligation to buy.

 

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings Books Boxed Set

True fans will want to read the books. Sometimes over and over again, LOL.

Not every Lord of the Rings fan has read or owns all of the books. If your fan has not, you might consider gifting them with a boxed set like this one that includes the LOTR stories and The Hobbit. If you are like us, you might also have a set that has not held up well during the test of time. Ours is a set that was my husbands when he was young so we will never get rid of it but we could sure stand to own another set for reading purposes.

The set shown here is a paperback book set that I think is priced pretty well considering the fact that it is a four book set. As I write this, Amazon has it at 40 percent off, meaning that you can buy all of the books for not more than $20.

Trivial Pursuit: The Lord of the Rings Movie Trilogy Collector's Edition

True fans will excel at this trivia board game!

Take your love of the The Lord of The Rings beyond the books and movies with this trivia board game, recommended for 2 to 4 adult players or teams.

Personally, I don't fair well at trivia and my sons and husband would DEMOLISH me if I played LOTR trivia with them but, if you have a group of really big fans, they might enjoy using this game to show their knowledge of middle earth.

With comments like this game is a lot of fun, you will find the Amazon customer reviews helpful if you are considering buying this or any other item from Amazon for your LOTR fan. I always recommend checking Amazon customer reviews when I am unfamiliar with a product I am considering purchasing.

Lord of the Rings Funko Plush Toys

Isn't Frodo absolutely adorable?

Frodo, Legolas, Gollum, Gandalf and the Orcs were all available as small Funko plush toys when I started writing this page. However, I see now that some of them have become increasingly hard to find and I notice that the search results for Lord of the Rings Funko Plush on eBay show a limited number of these pieces available in new condition and that at least two of them, Legolas and Frodo, command fairly high prices. However, if you have someone who loves Frodo and wants a collectible piece for display purposes, one of these Funko toys might be just what you are looking for.

Lego's Lord of the Rings Tower of Orthanc

LEGOs Lord of the Rings Tower of Orthanc is set number 10237.

If you are looking for another item with play value and you have someone who likes to build with Lego, you might consider a Lego set like this extremely popular set, Lego's Lord of the Rings Tower of Orthanc.

With 2359 pieces it is a large set with a wonderful WOW factor when received as a gift. This set is appropriate for adult individuals and for those aged 14 and up. The Lego world considers it a really fun set to build as well as to display. A bonus is that includes a rare piece, Grima Wormtongue, and an exclusive piece, the Ent.

If you would like to choose a slightly smaller or simply a different Lord of the Rings Lego set, you can see all of them on Amazon by clicking right here.

The Hobbit T-Shirt

Of course, every fan should have a Hobbit shirt!

Of course, almost every fan of the Lord of the Rings wants to own a Hobbit t-shirt whether he or she lives in t-shirts or only wears one occasionally! My sons love their graphic tees, and this one is perfectly, well Hobbit-ish! I think t-shirts are a great option when you want to give a gift that is affordable, practical and fun. This green shirt is available on Amazon in sizes small through extra extra large so there should be one available for your LOTR fan.
