Eat. Sleep. Anime.

Attack on Titan Hoodie

This awesome hoodie from ThinkGeek is a perfect gift for all those Attack on Titan fans in your life. It’s also better against the cold than a simple cloak would be while still displaying the Wings of Freedom that represent those who put their life on the line for humanity.

Eat. Sleep. Anime. T-Shirt

This simple design from Etsy will let your special fan show the world what’s really important to them.

T-Shirts of Their Favorite Series’

Redbubble has no shortage of anime themed clothing including popular series such as One Punch Man, Berserk, Full Metal Alchemist, and Cowboy Bebop, all at affordable prices.

Statues

SH Figuarts makes some high-quality figures and statues that cover a wide offering of different anime and manga. They have figures for Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball, One Piece, and many more at really good prices. You can get something really cool that would look perfect on a desk/shelf/table for as low as $10, and their are some higher end items if you want that, too.

The Death Note

Who doesn’t want a Death Note? Even people who haven’t watch the anime are aware of its power and everyone knows not to let it fall into the wrong hands. You can buy one for the right hands in your life and we promise it won’t actually kill anyone (we think).

Video Games

Video games are a way for fans to actually dive into the worlds they’ve fallen in love with and interact with their favorite characters. This year alone has seen some solid games including Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization, Pyscho Pass: Mandatory Happiness, and One Piece: Burning Blood. There are also many other games out there for you to check out across the PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Vita, 3DS, Wii U, and 360.

Jewelry

Sometimes a piece of jewelry will make a person’s day, and there just so happens to be quite a bit of anime-based jewelry that would make perfect holiday gifts. For instance, check out this Voltron Green Lion Pendant for under $50, or this Sword Art Online ring necklace that fans of Kirito and Asuna’s love would surely appreciate. There’s tons more on Etsy, Amazon, and ThinkGeek for you to check out.

Plush

You can’t go wrong with a plush no matter what the age of the person you’re buying a gift for is. During the holiday season, cute, huggable gifts are always welcome so why not hit up Amazon for some great options? You’ll find plushes from Pokemon, Fairy Tail, and more. Then there’s Tokyo Otaku Mode which also has a wide selection of anime plushes at reasonable prices.

Blu-Rays and DVDs

Do you know what anime fans love doing? Watching their favorite animes. Now we’re going to be honest, anime isn’t usually cheap so you may find yourself shelling over a lot of cash depending on the series you’re looking into. But you can find deals on Amazon and Funimation from time to time that are definitely worth it for that special someone during the holiday season.

Crunchyroll Subscription

If you find that, even with sales, Blu-rays and DVDs are too rich for you blood, you can still give the gift of anime through a Crunchyroll premium subscription. They have a ton of options for fans of all types and they update regularly so it’s a great way for your giftee to keep up with their favorite series.

Cosplay!

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who is a fan of anime and cosplay, why not consider some props or material for them? There are many different sites you can go to that range in price and quality. Some sites even make it easy to search by letting you find things based on specific series. Do keep in mind, though, that depending on what you’re looking for, it can get expensive. Cosplay Sky has a wide selection though it’s very pricey, but you can also hit up Etsy which has a wide range of prices. Of course, you could always go for fabric from just about any craft store including Jo-Ann Fabrics

Kigurumi

You may know these as onesies, but the fact is they make great gifts for all ages and are very comfortable. Check out this Totoro Kigurumi that is sure to make a great gift idea.

Replicas

You can also gift a piece of the anime made real in the form of a replica. Many animes tend to have badass weapons that would look greaton a walk such as Ichigo’s Tensa Zangetsu from Bleach, or Kirito’s blade from Sword Art Online. If you have tons of disposable income you could perhaps consider the transforming Dominator from Psycho Pass that will wow even people who haven’t seen the series.

Posters

Posters are a great gift idea that’re never too hard on the wallet and it allows fans to cover more of the wall they’ve been trying to hide with their fandom. Allposters.com has a great selection for low prices.

Manga

All of that television and video gaming can be bad for the eyes, so why not give that anime fan in your life a gift that keeps them wrapped in their favorite worlds just in a different form. This is also a great gift idea for those looking to get into the roots of their favorite series and read more. Amazon has a large selection, as does Barnes & Noble if you’re looking for the popular stuff. Also check out My Comic Shop which has a huge list to choose from (just make sure to find out what you’re looking for first).
