The best Fortnite gifts to get a Fortnite fan.
Since it continues to dominate media attention, in-game sales, and your kids and their friends' conversations, it seems like all you hear about is that Fortnite video game. Everywhere you go, you hear players talking about Epic's gaming phenomenon. You can barely get past the Fortnite logo yourself, but you know more than you'd like about the game, having heard about all the hair-raising moments from both your kids and your buddies with a penchant for gaming.
Because of all that talk, you at least know what, in general, you should shop for this holiday season. The problem is that Fortnite is a free-to-play game, which means you can't just buy Fortnite for your friends or kids (and even if you could, they'd already have it!), so you have to think a little creatively about how you shop. With a sea of ideas for Fortnite gifts to work with, you might be overwhelmed by all the skins, accessories, bundles, V-bucks, and Fortnite llamas you've seen from the game, and there are even some of those weird, bootleg Fortnite things you see on Amazon masquerading as birthday gifts.
Fortnite is a more complex game that it might seem, and there's lots to know about it. That's why we've put together this Fortnite gift guide to help you find the perfect gift for your special battle bus trooper; you don't need to learn to draw a beautiful structure of death--you just need to know what to buy.
For starters, you should shop for V-Bucks, the in-game currency Epic Games created for Fortnite. For those unfamiliar, Fortnite skins (like the recent Skull Trooper skin recently added for a Halloween event) are another name for all the outfits you can put on your Fortnite characters, making rare ones a prized possession. That makes them hard to feature at a birthday party, but trust us--they value rare Fortnite skins dearly. Beyond that, however, we have some ideas for some cool gifts to get the gamer in your household this holiday season.

Holiday Gift Guide 2019
Note that prices are accurate at the time of publication but subject to change without notice.
Nerf TS-1 Blaster
I don't think I need to say it, but Nerf blasters are fun, and there are tons of them based on Fortnite weapons, making it fun for your kids to experience Fortnite in real life (hopefully without any of the consequences). Our personal favorite Nerf-related holiday gift is the Tactical Shotgun. Not only does it look just like the in-game weapon; it also isn't based on any real-world gun--unlike Fortnite's Nerf SCAR assault rifle.
Nerf Rocket Launcher
Another great choice when choosing Nerf Fortnite gifts is the blaster based on the Rocket Launcher, which comes with two huge foam rockets that are sure to be a big hit but won't leave battle scars.
Fortnite Limited-Edition Xbox One Controller
If you're not sure what cosmetic items or Fortnite skins to get, the Fortnite special-edition Xbox One controller is a great gift. It's an absolutely gorgeous purple, matching the Dark Vertex outfit that is included in this package along with 500 V-Bucks, which they can use to buy cosmetic items for their characters.
Fortnite Limited-Edition Xbox One S Bundle
If you're trying to get someone to play Fortnite with you or simply give your kids another way to show off their Fortnite outfits to other players, this Xbox One S bundle comes with the aforementioned controller in addition to the Dark Vertex outfit and 2,000 V-Bucks. The Xbox One S also features a purple shell, matching the special-edition controller. It also bundles a month of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.
Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft's version of Netflix, providing a large library of games you can download and play for as long as you're subscribed. You also get special discounts, so you can keep the games you like even after they leave the library or you unsubscribe.
Xbox Live Gold is a subscription that gets you free monthly games, special discounts, and access to online multiplayer; however, as a free-to-play game, Fortnite does not require you to buy Xbox Live Gold for multiplayer.
Fortnite Action Figures
The Fortnite action figures from McFarlane Toys are excellently made and feature some of the series' most popular characters, including Cuddle Team Leader and Peely. Any of these Fortnite gifts would make a great stocking stuffer, but we're partial to the inherent appeal of a living banana.
Skull Trooper Premium Action Figure
This figure of the white version of the iconic Skull Trooper outfit from comes with a pretty spooky pickaxe and a pretty handy backpack. The Skull Trooper outfit debuted late in 2017 and didn't return for 2018, so if the Fortnite fan in your life didn't have a chance to buy it, at least they can have a figure commemorating it. You can get it for under $20 at Amazon.
Raven Deluxe Figure
This Raven figure is a bit more "Deluxe" than McFarlane Toys' other Fortnite action figures. Featuring five points of articulation, it comes packaged with the SCAR assault rifle and a display base, making it possible to display it like a trophy. If your kids are looking for a way to play Fortnite without actually playing Fortnite, this is as good as it gets.
Cuddle Team Leader Funko Pop
The Cuddle Team Leader is back... in Pop form! Fortnite has a bunch of different Funko Pops for its large cast of characters to buy this holiday season, and this is one of the most popular.
10-Inch Loot Llama Funko Pop
Funko’s larger 10-inch Pops are a fun gift for fans, and this one based on the Fortnite Llama, called the Big Llama, is Fortnite's representation in the super-sized Funko realm. It may not be plush, but it's still cute.
Fortnite Legacy Gamers 5-inch Vinyl Figures
LAMO makes vinyl figures of the biggest streamers on Twitch and Mixer, and if your special somebody is an avid fan, then they'll love these toys of their favourite personalities. There's one for Ninja, Lirik, TimTheTaman, and Summit1g, four of the biggest Fortnite streamers out there.
7-Inch Loot Llama Plush
If you're looking to buy a Fortnite plush toy, the Loot Llama plush is softer than a Funko Pop and a perfect way to cuddle up with the Fortnite llama during the holidays.
DualShock 4 - Fortnite Jet Black
This DualShock 4 bundle comes with a PS4 controller, an Epic Neo Versa Fortnite skin, an Epic Neo Phrenzy Back Bling cosmetic item, and 500 V-Bucks.
PS4 Gold Headset - Fortnite Jet Black
This PS4 Gold Headset bundle includes the same in-game content and skins as the aforementioned DualShock 4 bundle. The headset itself has a comfortable, over-the-ear design and features a microphone, so your special gamer can coordinate with their squad in Fortnite.
Boogie Bomb Light-Up Toy
This light-up Boogie Bomb makes for a fun stocking stuffer, with its lights and music that match the in-game weapon of the same name.
Fortnite 2019 Advent Calendar
Advent Calendars are always fun for counting down the days until you can open that special Christmas gift, and if you've got kids who are Fortnite and Funko Pop fanatics, then it can't get much better than this particular one. Will today be the day you finally get the pickaxe? It's like a real loot chest!
Every popular franchise needs its own version of Monopoly, so of course, this is Fortnite's very own edition of the classic board game. It's a great gift if you're looking to play something with the whole family.
Fortnite Llama Drama Loot Pinata
These Loot Llama Pinatas contain 23 different items, all based on Fortnite skins and weapons. You get a 4-inch Rust Lord figure in addition to a collection of building pieces, weapons, and items. However, if you want it to be a surprise, just take the tag off that details what comes in the Llama Pinata.
Rainbow Smash Foam Pickaxe
If your kids are looking for that "Fortnite in real life" experience, then they're going to need a pickaxe, since it's an iconic part of the game. This Rainbow Smash foam pickaxe lets your kids pretend to roam the map without really hurting anyone, and it features one of the most colorful versions of the pickaxe our there.
Cuddle Team Leader Costume
Dress up as the adorable Cuddle Team Leader with this fun costume. It's likely not as soft as onesie pajamas, but the look is befitting that title, making it appropriate for any time of the year, not just Halloween. Bundle it with some Fortnite socks or shoes and your favorite gamer can be dressed head to toe in Fortnite attire.
Cuddle Team Leader Bluetooth Speaker
The Bitty Boomer Bluetooth speaker is an affordable speaker that packs a surprising amount of punch. You can even sync two of them together so that audio plays out of both speakers at the same time, making it a great gift for duos.
