The holiday season is upon us, and with it the need to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones. This may include a die-hard fan of Borderlands or two, so we’re here to help you find them the right gifts to get the job done with a 2019 Borderlands holiday gift guide.
Vault Symbol, Brand and Character Keychains
If you’re looking to keep your spending on the lower end, than look no further than one of the many keychains based off of the Borderlands franchise.
Designed after a variety of elements from the series’ entries, the many keychains currently on the market can satisfy a variety of different fans.
If your giftee loves to rep Atlus, Vladof or any of the other weapon brands from the Borderlands series, then head over to Gaya Entertainment‘s website and grab some of their custom metal motifs of the different corporation’s logos.
Meanwhile, if your Borderlands fan of choice prefers a more general statement of fandom, then look no further than 2K’s official Gold Vault Symbol keychain.
The choice is yours, and while shipping and handling may vary based on where you buy, you should be able to nab one of these nifty trinkets for about $8.00 – $12.00.
Borderlands Custom Designed Socks
Likewise on the cheaper end of Borderlands-themed gifts are a variety of custom-designed socks.
Running buyers roughly $15.00 and sold at major and minor outlets alike, these stylish bits of footwear will keep the fan in your life warm and toasty while also repping their favorite characters.
The set shown above, which is available at GameStop, comes as a set of five, with designs based off of the most recent Vault Hunters, Series mainstays like Claptrap and Moxxie, and the series’ Psycho mascot.
These are far from the only designs available though, and if you’re interested in seeing all of the different designs on the market, a quick search on Amazon will show you some of the more intricate looks available to the prospective buyer.
Borderlands-Themed Coffee Mugs and Thermoses
Got a Borderlands fan in your life who also has a raging caffeine addiction? If so, then you’d be hard-pressed to find a better gift than one of these Borderlands-themed drinkware.
Available through the 2K Games Store and Gearbox Loot websites, these mugs and thermoses will allow the fan in your life to wear their fandom with pride while gulping down the fuel they need to get through the day.
Not only that, but thanks to the variety of designs available, there are a wealth of options to choose from based on their tastes. If they love the voluptuous Moxxie but prefer to keep their drinkware discreet, there’s a simple coffe mug that they’ll love.
Or, if they love the series’ Psycho mascot and prefer something more eye catching, there’s a great mug available that becomes more ornate the hotter it gets.
To top it all off, you can nab one of these fine products for anywhere between $10.00 and $20.00, depending on what type of mug or thermos you settle on.
Borderlands 3 Pop! Figurines
IF your giftee is a fiend for Pop! figures, then the newly released Borderlands 3 line has plenty of affordable options to choose from.
Depicting chibi-fied versions of characters like Lilith, Claptrap and Maya, these figures are an excellent addition to the collections of Borderlands and Pop! fans alike.
Each boasts the simple yet detailed designs the figure line has come to be known for, and will surely become the apple of a collector’s eye once the game has been out a bit longer.
Best of all, you won’t have to break the bank to pick one up. The official 2K Game Store website still has plenty in stock for $9.99 each, and several other retailers can be found carrying them via Amazon.
FAICCIA Custom-Made Psycho Masks
Being the face of the Borderlands series’ iconic mascot, the Psycho Mask has become an instantly recognizable symbol of the series for fans.
As such, a custom-made replica from of the facial wear is a sure-fire way to make someone’s holiday. Produced by FAICCIA, these masks offer all of the style of the malicious marauders in tangible form, even offering light-up LED eyes to enhance the authenticity.
It’s an ideal bit of memorabilia that would look perfect both on a shelf or on your loved-one’s face for halloween. Best of all, though, is that it’s fairly affordable and easy to find, only running buyers $24.99 plus shipping and handling via Amazon.
Official Borderlands Apparel T-Shirts
Of course, if your loved one prefers to wear their proof of fandom on a more regular basis, you can’t go wrong with one of the many official Borderlands t-shirts for sale through the 2K Games Official Store and Gearbox Loot websites.
Selling T-Shirts with a variety of designs from corporation logos to sketched decals of the games’ iconography, there’s sure to be at least one shirt that your beloved Vault Hunter will be happy to wear most any day of the week.
Likewise, these pieces of apparel are almost always in stock, available in most any size and ready to ship out to you at a moment’s notice.
Best of all is that these t-shirts won’t run you too much money. Priced between $19.99 and $21.99 before shipping and handling, they’re a nice, affordable option for a quick and easy gift idea.
Custom-Made Corporation Logo Hoodies
For those looking to flex their gift-getting muscles this holiday season, there are plenty of pricier gift options available to consider.
Case in point: a custom-made corporate logo hoodie, sporting designs, colors and iconography from any of the series’ many weapons manufacturer corporations.
From Hyperion to Vladof, Maliwan to Atlus, there are a wide array of designs and brands to choose from, allowing you to pick and choose which one best suits your giftee’s tastes.
However, it should be noted that shopping for these hoodies come with a couple of catches.
First off, not all of these hoodies are available from the same retailer. Many are produced by different outlets based on their design, and as such your best bet for hunting down the one of your choice is to use Amazon.
As a result, the pricing on these hoodies is fairly inconsistent. Some will run you anywhere between $24.99 and $32.99, while others can be as much as $72.99. Fortunately, Amazon frequently offers sales on many of these hoodies, and so you should be able to find one for an affordable price with a bit of research and luck.
Weta Workshop Borderlands 3 Figures of Fandom
A yet pricier option for a Borderlands-themed gift are the recently released Borderlands 3 Figures of Fandom designed by Weta Works.
Offering incredibly detailed figures of the four main Vault Hunters from the newest entry in the series, these collector’s items allow fans to decorate their shelves with clear indicators of who their character of choice is.
They’re easy to get your hands on too, as they are set to release in late November or early December – depending on which retailer you use – and are still available for preorder from official retailers like the 2K Games Store or Weta Workshop, as well as third party retailers you can find via Amazon.
The only catch is that you’ll have to pay a high price to nab even one of these figures. Each is priced at $119.99, and even with sales at some retailers, the price only goes up when shipping and handling are factored in.
Prop Replica Maliwan Pistol
If the Borderlands fan in your life is looking to really put their collection over the top, then there’s no better way to do it than with the Borderlands 3 Prop Replica Maliwan Pistol.
A 1:1 recreation of one of the elemental damage-spewing weapons from the latest game, this pistol pulls out all the stops to look as authentic as possible. It offers functional switches, a rotating ammo cartridge that is activated by holding down the trigger and LED lights to give it a prop-sense of firing off round after round.
Like with the Figures of Fandom though, this item is on the far side of pricy. Tagged at $149.99 before shipping and handling, it’s the kind of gift reserved for those willing to drop a large amount of cash on their loved ones.
Fortunately, that’s the only real catch, as it’s still up for preorder and, as a result, in plentiful supply.
Borderlands 3 Diamond Loot Chest Collector’s Edition
It may seem a bit strange to include the most recent entry in the series on this list, but rest assured that if the Borderlands fan in your life doesn’t have it yet, they’ll want the Borderlands 3 Collector’s Edition.
In addition to the game itself, the Diamond Loot Box edition includes custom art chip cards of key characters from the game; custom character figurines; a cloth map of the game’s planetary map; a model of the Sanctuary III; keychains of the Vault relics found throughout the game; and a Diamond Chest to hold all of the owner’s spoils in.
It’s a literal treasure trove for the avid collector, and because of their limited supply upon release, they became a high-priced item on reselling sites in recent months.
Fortunately, GameStop has recently replenished their stock, making the edition available for PS4, Xbox One and PC owners, albeit at the hefty price of $249.99 before shipping and handling.
