Best gifts for Stranger Things Fans

Welcome to the Upside Down! 

If you are looking for gifts for Stranger Things fans, Welcome!

This post will definitely help you to find a great present for Christmas, birthdays or any other occasions. 

Stranger Things, this science fiction horror TV series on Netflix is a big hit among teenagers worldwide. It has 3 seasons already and the 4th is coming soon.

The series is set in the 1980s and several details were inspired by the pop culture and films of the decade ( works of Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, video games, etc.).

So if you are wondering what to buy for a Stranger Thing fan, here is a list of 20+ ideas handpicked by me, a true Stranger Things fan. 

Best game and toy gifts for Stranger Things fans

Funko Pop figures

These are collectibles! Not toys, all right?! 😉 

stranger things gifts: Funko pop figures

How frickin’ cute are these??? Personally I don’t have any Stranger Things Funko Pop figures, but I do have some other (Star Trek, Deadpool, Alien, Predator etc.) and I love them.

Unfortunately they are very pricey where I live and I just couldn’t choose just a few of them.

Buying 10+ figures is just out of our possibilities right now.

But if I had these, I would definitely store them on a shelf where the normal ones would stand on the shelf itself and the figures from the Upside Down would hang… you know: upside down from the bottom of the shelf right below the normal version. Like above on the image I photoshoped.

Also, some random one would just hang around in my room upside down, Bitchin’!

Yep, I would need waaaay more than 10 figures…


Classic yet unconventional: this set can be flipped to switch between the Upside Down and the real world.

While young children can actually play with this, I think it is more of a collectible, just like the Funko Pop figures.

For more information, check it out on the LEGO website

Retro Monopoly

Retro Monopoly: best gift for a Stranger Thins fan

Themed Monopoly games are so fun. They are much cooler than the original one, in my honest opinion.

I have a Star Trek themed one but I also liked the Jurassic Park edition. This monopoly seems to be even better as it looks so retro.

Stranger Things limited edition Nike shoes

Okay, so maybe I shouldn’t have include these ones because they are mostly unavailable. But they are so cooooool! And what if you are lucky and able to catch one. Who knows?

Also, their prices are also kind of… how much??? 

But hey, they are unique!

So if you are a ST fan yourself, ask your parents nicely!

These were my recommendations as gifts for Stranger Things fans. Did you like them?

Also: did you love the series? Have you already seen it at all?

I definitely did love it.

My favorite parts were those that happened in the Upside Down.

My favorite character was the Demogorgon because as he turned up, the story became thrilling. Also, I laughed at Steve Harrington a lot. In the first season I wanted to kill him with a teaspoon, but later he changed so much. I also loved Alexei.

My Mom’s favorite was:

😂 😂 😂  No. Hopper.


Who knows. Maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t. 🤭

  1. There are so many things here I want for myself! Can I justify buying the Lego for my 4 y.o.? Probably not… but the T-shirts and sneakers could definitely find a place in my wardrobe. I will have to see who I can gift some of these for Xmas.
