Gift Ideas for a Game of Thrones Fan

Updated on May 1, 2014

Winter is Coming

I wasn't particularly interested in watching Game of Thrones but then I just had to see what everyone was raving about. Facebook status messages were all about "Finished watching Game of Thrones! What do I do now?" which piqued my curiosity even further. I ended up getting DVDs and I was hooked right from episode one! I have always loved medieval fantasy and I couldn't stop myself from watching the episodes back to back. This is the same story of many Game of Thrones fans out there. They just can't seem to get enough of the show and love getting themselves small mementos that remind them of it.

Getting back to gift ideas, my cousin is a huge Game of Thrones fan and it was his birthday recently. I just had to get him something Game of Thrones related which made me scour the web for reviews for every interesting, best selling games based on the TV show.

1. Game of Thrones Board Game

Board games are hugely popular and this is what you should go for if you want a game that can be enjoyed by all members in a family. This particular Game of Thrones board game is designed for 3 to 6 players. Comes with a rulebook which will help you out with your quest to gain control over the throne. Challenge your strategic skills, play your cards well and you will just end up making your presence felt in Westeros!

The large board is an extensively detailed representation of Westeros and captures all the vital elements that make Game of Thrones the popular show that it is. Characters and important locations are represented via cards and tokens and you have to use them wisely to claim the iron throne. A rulebook will help you out in understanding these steps involved in the game.

The basic aim of the player is to gain control over as many castles or strongholds as possible. The player who claims the most land is declared the winner.

2. Vinyl Figures

Gift your Game of Thrones fan an entire set of vinyl figures representing the characters of the show. Especially apt for those who are into collecting Game of Thrones items. These vinyl figures are too cute to be not included in any collector's treasured list.

4. Shot Glass Set

A set of four 4-ounce shot glasses each representing a house of power from Game of Thrones - Stark, Baratheon, Targaryen and Lannister. Enjoy your drinks GOT style!

5. 4D Westeros Puzzle

A super fun multi layered puzzle for Game of Thrones fans. The main aim of the player here is to assemble a 4D puzzle i.e. the map of Westeros in a series of steps. Assembly of the map takes place in layers. The first layer includes more than 1000 pieces and represents the various locations of Westeros. The second layer has more than 200 pieces which when put together offers a visual representation of how the landscapes in Westeros appear to be. The third layer includes putting in crucial elements like castles and main cities.

This one might be a tad difficult to assemble but is a perfect gift for someone who likes a bit of a challenge.

6. Direwolf Bookends and Bookmarks

A bookworm would love these bookends that represent the sigels of House Stark. Direwolves are more or less like wolves only that they are larger in appearance, appearing to be more fierce, intensely loyal and remarkably intelligent. Simple yet stunning in design and of supreme quality, even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, you would want one in your book shelf.

Another gift you might considering giving a bookworm is a bookmark. I, for one, love bookmarks and can never get enough of them. So why not gift your friend a couple of Game of Thrones themed bookmarks? The following bookmarks are magnetic as well which means that they are multi-functional and can operate as more than just a bookmark.
