Let’s be real for a moment here: we all know that what fantasy lovers would really want for the holidays is to soar on a dragon above the medieval political power struggles. Stumble through the wardrobe and have some time with a talking bear, or a ring that would magically transport them from a location to the next.
You’d love to make that happen but you probably don’t have the means. But, there are amazing gifts you could actually give them – and it will mean as much. Be sure to know what they truly like. If someone doesn’t have a stuffed Hedwig in 2020 it’s probably because they don’t want one.
We’ve researched some of the most popular gifts that every fantasy lover is likely to find so thoughtful. The gifts on this list are for all the fantasy fans that enjoy ethereal elves, sword fights, and the vocal in the group about certain popular HBO shows. So, get your magically minded friends and family these fantastic gifts.
