Back to the Future Gifts

Updated on December 8, 2012

BTTF Gifts Guaranteed to Create 1.21 Gigawatt Smiles!

What to give to the guy or girl who's obsessed with Back to the Future? Gifts inspired by the movie of course! Back to the Future has enjoyed a cult fan base since it first graced the silver screen so I'm sure you have a friend or two who, like me, is still hung up on the show. Mini DeLorean's, wooden figurines of Marty and Doc, hover boards, creative wall arts, and prop replicas - the possibilities of being awarded "best present of the year" for the holidays are endless!

Hoverboard Prop Replica

Back to the Future 2. The epic chase scene at the clock tower. Marty is using a pink Mattel hoverboard he "borrowed" from a kid. I don't know about you guys but from the first time I saw that hoverboard, I knew I wanted one! I've daydreamed about the day we'd be ditching those boring land-locked skateboards for these gliding hoverboards but alas, the future has been quite the letdown. At the moment, this official 1:1 scaled prop replica of the hoverboard is the closest we can get to this dream. Every BTTF aficionado will LOVE you and worship you once you give them this.

This is the real deal. It was developed by the film's special effects supervisor, prop maker and co-producer / co-writer. Plus, it's fully sanctioned by Universal Studios! It has that distinct whooshing sound, and it will glide over most flat surfaces, provided you don't ride on them. And remember what Biff's lackeys said, "You bojo, those boards don't work on water... Unless you've got POWER!"

 

Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads

DeLorean Models from BTTF 1 through 3

Give a DeLorean model to your favorite Back to the Future fans and their hearts will race up to 88MPH! The photo above is part of my own BTTF collection and I'm darn proud of it! There are different diecast scale models for the time machine vehicle depending on the movie. Part 1 has a hook attached to get power from the clock tower; Part 2 has a nifty fuel compartment that accepts garbage; Part 3 has a circuit board mounted on its hood.

The 25th Anniversary Trilogy DVD

Adorn your Car with BTTF Stuff!

Your car may not be a DeLorean (the shame!) but you can pimp it up like it was part of the movie with an "OUTATIME" license plate or a decal sticker of the flux capacitor.

The whole thing just got real at a recent game in AT&T Park. Watch and drool and attempt to feed your computer screen money just so you can get a hold of that awesome vehicle!

Here is another great gift idea - how about an iPhone case inspired by the movie? The movie never predicted this futuristic touch screen gadget but it definitely fits right in BTTF2!
