10 great gifts for Zelda fans
What do you buy a fan of a series who inevitably already has all the games in said series?
Your Zelda-loving friend may have mastered Majora, whitewashed Wind Waker and obliterated Ocarina, but what they probably have not done is laid their filthy gauntlets on these non-game treasures…
1. Zelda Chess
Another way to keep Ganon in check is with this lovely chess set. With beautifully crafted pieces of your favourite Hylian (and non-Hylian) characters from the series, this set will surely never see a pawn shop…
2. Heart Container
Win that special someone’s heart over with a literal piece of heart. It can be hung… well, it can’t be hung around their wrist…or neck…it just sort of sits there. But boy does it look just lovely in its velvet padded box. (Disclaimer: Collecting four of these does not extend your life).
3. Zelda Monopoly
Who hasn’t wanted to scratch their capitalist tycoon itch in Hyrule? One thing the videogames distinctly lack is a ruthless property-based economy, so this version of the all-time classic Monopoly will go some way in filling that void. Should really be called Zeldopoly though.
4. Zelda Crew Socks
Keep your ankles warm on Death Mountain with these trendy and colourful crew socks. There are actually loads of great Zelda-themed socks on Amazon, so fill your (iron)boots!
5. The Legend of Zelda: Art and Artifacts
Dash over to the bookshelf and knock down this excellent book that’s even better than Hyrule Historia. Filled with beautiful art from across the games, you’ll no longer have to actually play the games themselves to revisit all the magical places in Hyrule.
6. Zelda Laptop Backpack
Sick of carrying your laptop around in just a regular ol’ non-Zelda themed backpack? Aren’t we all? Thankfully, someone’s made this, and now passers by will no longer be unaware of your love for all things Zelda.
7. Zelda Plushies
Snuggly-wuggly-Wind-Waker-themed-plushy-wushies! Great for you to cuddle and your dog to ruin.
8. Zelda Phone Case
As well as being beautifully designed, the best thing about this phone case is that by being stained-glass in style, it accurately reflects the fragility of your highly-breakable, fancy-pants smartphone. But all jokes aside it does look lovely, doesn’t it?
9. Majora’s Mask Wallet
MM? More like MMMMMmm! This wonderful wallet is as useful as it is stylish, perfect for holding all those rupees you never spend.
10. Zelda Triforce Flag
We all know you’re never truly a fan of anything until you have a flag of it hanging outside your home. Thank the Goddesses for this, then.
