With the holiday season now upon us, it can be difficult to find the right gifts for the fan in your life. Now in it’s second year, the AwesomeToyBlog Awesome Holiday Gift Guide is my opportunity to spotlight some fantastic products that make perfect gifts. Today’s theme provides gift options for the whovian in your life. Having just celebrated it’s 49th anniversary, Doctor Who is set to have a huge year next year, and with the popularity of the new series, there is more Doctor Who gift options then ever!
Starting with the fun stuff, I can strongly recommend the newest classic figure set – from an AwesomeToyBlog favorite episode comes the Pyramid of Mars collectors set. Featuring the episode’s villian Suhtekh and two Guardian Mummies this set will bring a smile to any classic Who fan. Or maybe some talking Daleks would be more their speed. Nothing says Christmas better than the gift of a Dalek, much less on that threatens your with Extermination!
My next recommendation is perfect for when the family is full of Who fans. From USAopoly came Doctor Who themed versions of Monopoly and Yahtzee. The Doctor Who Monopoly board features Doctor Who ‘street names’ and game pieces of iconic Doctor Who lore including the 4th Doctor’s scarf, and the 7th Doctor’s question mark umbrella. The Yahtzee game is gorgeous as packaged, proudly displaying a TARDIS shaped dice cup, which I think is fantastic!
Maybe your Who fan wants to express their fandom in a more practical manner. To these ends I suggest either a TARDIS waste bin or ice bucket from Underground Toys. Another practical gift suggestion is Bif Bang Pow!’s TARDIS themed aluminum water bottle or insulated mug, both perfect for one’s commute.
