The release of Stranger Things Season 2 was a major pop culture moment for 2017. And with the holidays upon us, you might be considering buying a Stranger Things-related gift for a fellow fan.
But sometimes it’s hard to find merch that isn’t totally tacky or useless. Fear not! We’ve done the hard work and we’re here to make your shopping a little easier with gift ideas that you’ll actually like. Check out our gift guide for the Stranger Things fan in your life (or yourself, tbh).
Retro styles are coming back in a big way. 80’s and 90’s-inspired looks are making a fashion comeback, and Stranger Things is contributing to that. Consider purchasing a faux fur-lined suede, corduroy, or denim jacket. It’s fashionable, functional, and also a little homage to the style of the show.
You can finally leggo of your Eggo and make your own waffles. Plus, waffle makers come in a variety of sizes, styles, and price-points, making it a perfect gift for any fan of Stranger Things and/or breakfast foods. Eleven would approve. So would Leslie Knope.
You can’t go wrong with a graphic tee for the truly devoted Stranger Things fan. You can find comfy and cute shirts, sweaters, and sweatpants for a fair price.
Toys & Games
Clothing can sometimes be hard to buy for other people, so you may also want to consider a toy or game. Smaller items like a keychain, themed Monopoly, or a cookbook inspired by the show’s characters are sure to please. Additionally, these gifts are generally $25 or less, which works well for Yankee Swaps/White Elephants/Office holiday parties.
