Default Gifts for the MCU Fan

Trying to come up with awesome gifts for someone who is such an avid Marvel fan -- and specifically a huge MCU fan. This person owns all the blu-rays (and the Phase 1 boxset).

Help?

The "art of" books are great. I love them. Also, film cells from the films are pretty cool. I got one from The Avengers as a gift. What is the price range you're looking for?

How about the Agents of Shield blu-ray? If your friend haven't bought it yet, that would be a nice gift to him or her.

It's a secret-Santa sort of deal, and the budget is 250ish$. So either one big thing, or a bunch of small things. I have two months basically to do it.

Thought I'd get a head start...


I like the "Art of..." ideas. And I know she picked up AoS and CA:TWS on Bluray yesterday -- we talked about it yesterday before she went and snagged them on her lunch.

All the mini posters in a nice frame would look awesome. It would take some effort but would be a great gift for a MCU fan.

You could also get a couple of autographs for that price range.

Have you looked into the Marvel Chess Set, by Eaglemoss, yet?

You could probably get the Phase 1 art of books and some of the phase 2 art of books for that price or less. There's good deals on ebay and amazon.

The art of books are fantastic. I have the Avengers one and it's beautiful to go through. Also for christmas I got this "Iron man manual" that I love reading through every now and then:

I'd recommend a Hot Toys figure from one of the films. I'd say your budget would just about cover it. The new TDW Loki and Thor are supposedly very nice so either one of those, I'd say would be a nice gift.

As I've, along with others have said, the "art of" books are amazing, and a great collectible for any MCU fan.

Here's a site for film cells that are a great gift as well: http://filmcellsltd.com/marvel.aspx
