Last Minute Game of Thrones Gifts for Father's Day

Updated on July 31, 2013

Is your Dad a Game of Thrones fan?


There are two reasons I can help you find the best Game of Thrones gadgets and toys: I have been married to a geek and a Game of Thrones fan and I have a reputation for finding awesome gifts!

The Game of Thrones DVD sets - Get your Dad the first two seasons of Game of Thrones on DVD

Let's start with the basics and review the series from the beginning by getting the complete series to date on DVD.

Season 3 is currently screening on HBO so that won't be available on DVD for a little while yet But you can put it on pre-order now to make sure Dad doesn't have to wait when it's released.

Game of Thrones: Season 1

Starting with Winterfell and following Ned Stark's foray into the minefield of King's Landing politics, following Jon Snow's journey to The Wall and traveling across the Narrow Seas to see what is left of the Targaryen dynasty, this first season draws you right in. I know my geek guy enjoyed Season 1 enormously and was looking forward to each new episode.

Secrets revealed and alliances are unravelled and forged. The intrigue escalates as we delve further into the characters. Though in Joffrey's case, that's not so much fun.

I think Season 2 was better than Season 1, with the storyline widening to encompass new Houses and characters.

NOT AVAILABLE YET, but put it on PRE-ORDER today and get it shipped straight to Dad as soon as it is released.

So far, I think Season 3 is the best yet, and it just keeps getting better with each episode.

 

Every time someone asks George R R Martin when the next book will be out, he kills a character.
