It is good when someone you are buying for has an interest as it makes them easier to buy for with. This in mind I have put together the Best Minecraft Gifts for Fans of the Game. Official Minecraft Licenses have led to several companies producing merchandise so that’s quite a range to choose from. My own children have enjoyed the game for over a good many years so I am sharing with you what I have found to be the best choices of gifts.
Note that the Top Trumps was gifted but because I knew it would be well received.
About Minecraft the Game
Minecraft is a sandbox video game developed by Mojang Studios and is the best-selling video game of all time. Players explore in a blocky world, extracting raw materials and building structures. It can be played as a fighting game or cooperative one. Players can modify the game it is really creative.
Computer Related Minecraft Gifts
Chances are if you have a Minecraft fan then they already have the game – but if not then this is the obvious gift! Or they may want a different version – such as Minecraft Dungeons or the Bedrock Edition (see below). In my experience if they are playing Minecraft on a computer then what they really want is computer stuff! This could be really expensive stuff like a new graphics card so that Minecraft looks better. Or maybe a better monitor.
Other popular options are now wireless headsets and gaming chairs! Not to mention having the right desk set up! Perhaps they would like a Minecraft controller, mouse pad or desk light!
Minecraft Bedrock Giftcards
Depending on which version of the Minecraft game they have they may also be interested in Minecoin gift cards, or Tokens, for PlayStation® users. These can then be used on Minecraft Marketplace to purchase community-made content from within the game. This includes Skin Packs, Character Packs, and Minecraft Worlds available on any device running the Bedrock version of Minecraft except for Minecraft: Java Edition. You cannot however buy Realms this way, but a subscription can be purchased via the default payment method on the account.
Practical Minecraft Gifts
You may want to cover some practical gifts by using the Minecraft theme. Either something they need like clothes (maybe pjs/a onesie, socks, pants, dressing down, hoodie. T-shirt, a Christmas jumper or even face masks!); stationery (pens, pencils, rubbers, pencil case); a new wallet; bag or water bottle for school; or maybe just a practical treat gift – such as a mug or Minecraft bedding.
Other practical Minecraft gifts include getting a Calendar and/or diary (to help them plan or record their memories) or a piggy bank to help them save up their money; or an alarm clock to help them wake up/know the time.
Fun Minecraft Gifts
Then there are the Minecraft Gifts that keep giving them fun even when they are not playing the game, also maybe encouraging some screen-free time. There are so many different Minecraft LEGO ideas with LEGO Minecraft The Mushroom House (£17.99) being in the DreamToys Top Toys list for Video Game Inspired Toys.
As well as 3D Cube paper Minecraft kits, die cast figures, Minecraft the board game and Minecraft Top Trumps.
Minecraft Top Trumps (Gifted)
Top Trumps has been a family favourite for over 40 years and is the UK’s #1 card game. The Independent and Unofficial Top Trumps Guide to Minecraft contains all the favourite mobs, from the common Creeper and nether-dwelling Blaze, to the dancing Parrots and rare Killer Bunny. Challenge friends and family to guess which mob is tallest, widest or the most likely to attack! But the ultimate question is which will have the highest Top Trumps Rating? Could it be Wither, Enderman or maybe even Polar Bears? RRP £8 available on Amazon.
I also received a Marvel Top Trumps set.
Miscellaneous Minecraft Gifts
Other good Minecraft gifts include fridge magnets (our boys have white boards to attach them to), Plushes, Books and Posters/wall stickers (decals).
