Marvel Avengers Throw Blanket
Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Captain America team up to make this plush throw blanket one of the better for Marvel gifts for fans of just about any stripe. The holiday season means cold weather for many, but this 46x60-inch polyester blanket keeps you warm while you watch earth's mightiest heroes duke it out, all for only $20.
Spider-Man: Far From Home Funko Pop
The continuous onslaught of Funko Pops makes it easy to miss some genuinely cool additions to the lineup. Fresh off of Spider-Man: Far From Home, Funko Pop version of Tom Holland’s Amazing Spider-Man has style and a nifty vertical stand. It's available for $11 at Entertainment Earth is a sure to be hot product going into the holiday season.
Perfect for cosplay, the Marvel Legends Series Infinity Gauntlet has all of the bells and whistles you could want to justify the fairly steep price: articulated fingers, a closed fist display mode, sound effects ripped from the movies, and six Infinity Stones that light up to make you the most powerful being in the universe. Just make sure you buy a pack of AAA batteries to include with the gift. Regularly $100, the Infinity Gauntlet is available at Amazon for $75.
One of the must-have Marvel gifts for wannabe scholars, the $20.49 Marvel Encyclopedia is a gorgeous, fully illustrated hardcover that outlines 1,200 Marvel characters to read up on. The weighty hardcover (448 pages) is a worthy coffee table book. Plus, it includes a heartfelt introduction written by Stan Lee, creator of many of the characters who make up Marvel's universe.
Stan Lee Funko Pop
Speaking of Stan Lee, the Pop version of the illustrious Marvel legend would be a classy stocking stuffer. Pop Stan Lee is $7.26 at Amazon.
Captain Marvel Makeup Brush Set
Captain America Shield Cutting Board
It’s not made of Vibranium, but this iconic Captain America shield cutting board can withstand temperatures up to 350 degrees, wards off stains, and has a non-slip rubber base. It’s a shiny replacement for plain wood cutting boards, and it's only $22 at Amazon. Not bad for something not made at Stark Industries.
Marvel Comics Retro Glasses Set
Perfect for the fan who's a kid or a kid at heart, Marvel Comics Retro Glass Tumbler set includes four 16-ounce glasses, each imprinted with a different Avenger. What’s really cool about these is that the images of Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, and Thor are inspired by their classic comic book looks. The four-cup set goes for $30 at Amazon.
Avengers 4-Movie Collection (Blu-ray)
The four pillars of the Infinity Saga are compiled in one gorgeous box set. All four Avengers movies can be watched in 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, or digitally and come packaged in slick steelbook cases. Made for collectors, the box set is $150 at Best Buy.
The Infinity Saga Collector's Edition (Blu-ray)
For the most dedicated Marvel fan, The Infinity Saga Collector’s Edition is the perfect gift. Releasing November 15 exclusively at Best Buy, this massive box set compiles all 23 movies in the Infinity Saga, from The Incredible Hulk to Spider-Man: Far From Home and everything in between, like Doctor Strange. The presentation is mightily impressive, with the case spines creating a picture of the MCU's heroes of villains (especially Thanos). Each movie has its own unique art case, and a bonus disc contains never-before-seen footage. As an added bonus for collectors, each of the limited edition box sets are numbered and come with a letter written by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and an exclusive lithograph.
The $550 price sounds high, but it breaks down to about $24 per movie. It’s actually a reasonable deal all things considered.
Avenger Hero Inventor Kit
The little superheroes in your life can both have fun and learn important STEM skills with the Avenger Hero Inventor Kit. Part robotics, part coding, this kit has it all. Kids can build their own hero gauntlet using a set of circuits and then code various commands and activities using the free Avengers Hero Inventor App. The app walks kids through the experience step-by-step and uses kid-friendly block-based programming to teach the basics of coding. Amazon currently has the Hero Inventor Kit for $120, which is a fairly cheap way to fight off your own Infinity War.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man: Far From Home - Molten Man Battle
Stealth Suit Spider-Man and Mysterio are in this LEGO set, but the star of the show is Molten Man, one of the secondary villains from Spider-Man: Far From Home. Molten Man makes up the vast majority of the 295-piece set. Once built, the Molten Man action figure is pretty cool, with an operable rapid shooter and claw to grip onto Spider-Man, Mysterio, or the nameless firefighter, a man who probably wishes he would’ve called in sick that day. This LEGO set goes for $24 at Amazon.
Upper Deck Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game
An engaging and highly replayable deck-building game, Legendary is particularly awesome for families because it’s designed as a cooperative game that replicates the action of MCU. But you don’t need a host of heroes to take down Magneto, Loki, and other supervillains. Legendary can also be played completely solo, and it remains a ton of fun as a single-player experience. Legendary comes with nearly 600 cards and is up for grabs at Amazon for $45
Lego Marvel Collection
The perfect gift for families with young kids, the Lego Marvel Collection compiles three accessible and fun Lego video games in one super package: Lego Marvel Super Heroes, Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, and Lego Marvel's Avengers. It's available on PS4 and Xbox One for around $26 at Amazon.
POP! Advent Calendar: Marvel 80th
An Advent calendar is a great gift that typically comes with a chocolate treat for each day. This Marvel-themed Funko Advent calendar trades chocolate for adorable mini Pop figures. The 24-piece set includes characters from the MCU such as Rocket Raccoon, Captain America, and an extremely delighted Thanos. The Marvel Advent calendar celebrates 80 years of Marvel and is available exclusively at GameStop for just $40.
