Minecraft is undoubtedly one of the best Xbox games (and best games in general), and has earned its title with years of constant support and a loyal community of dedicated players. Minecraft is more than a video game at this point, and has evolved into a full-blown brand with endless ways for fans to express their love for Minecraft through toys, gifts, books, and more. Being one of the biggest games in the world, Minecraft boasts of an equally large selection of merch. We researched to find the top picks, and have compiled a list of the best Minecraft toys and gifts for any Minecraft fan.
Unlock new worlds
Minecraft features the Minecraft Marketplace, which includes countless community-created worlds, items, and more to elevate the Minecraft experience to new levels. Minecoins are the currency of choice here, and let Minecraft players unlock brand-new ways to play.
A series of books
Many people may not be aware that Minecraft has actually spawned a full series of professionally written official novels, which currently numbers at nine books from a variety of authors (even Max Brooks, the author of World War Z!). Pick up the latest Minecraft novels either from Kindle or physically.
LEGO is already one of the best gift options for children and adults alike, and the company's long-time collaboration with Minecraft makes this even more true. There's a wide collection of LEGO Minecraft sets available, from smaller beginner sets to expensive and complicated builds.
Strategy board game
The perfect marriage between video games and board games, Minecraft Builders & Biomes is a strategy board game aimed at being accessible to children yet engaging for older board game enthusiasts. With great build quality and excellent reviews, this is an awesome option.
Funko POP! figures are amongst the most collectible in all of pop culture at the moment, and Funko has a line of exclusive Minecraft figures modeled after popular Minecraft characters like Steve. Minecraft Funko POP! figures aren't always the easiest to find, now, but they're perfect for any collector.
UNO is an infamous card game that has been responsible for many a fun family night, and now it's available decked out with an awesome-looking Minecraft theme. All of the Minecraft favorites make an appearance, including Steve, creepers, Endermen, and more.
Minecraft features a ton of in-game tools and weapons for players to equip, and now you can equip them in real life too. These lifesize toys look and feel great, with the sword making realistic sounds as it's played with and the second sword being able to transform into a pickaxe with the flick of a wrist.
Plenty of kids adore a good collection of stickers, and sticker books have their own sense of collectability. Minecraft has several official sticker books to choose from, with each following their own theme (Survival Mode, the Nether and End, and the Aquatic Update).
If your child is a Minecraft fanatic, personalize their bedroom and their sleep with a four-piece Minecraft Creeper set for twin beds. Including a comforter, sheets, and a pillowcase all themed with Minecraft's most iconic mob, this is the ultimate bedtime gift.
Hot and cold
Thermos containers have long been the go-to for people looking to snack on the go, and offer yet another way to express yourself and your interests. Thermos offers two Minecraft-themed containers, depending on how large of a size you need (or if you're prioritizing food or drink).
Lunch in style
Thermos doesn't just make their classic containers. They also make lunch boxes in two different sizes, and they're also available in a simple-yet-fantastic creeper theme. If you're looking for the perfect Minecraft-flavored set of containers for your meals, look no further.
Merch for all
There's an endless amount of merch and apparel available for Minecraft, but one of the highest quality and complete collections comes from Bioworld, which includes shirts, sweatshirts, and masks for children and adults, backpacks, blankets, and a handful of other accessories.
Searching for the perfect Minecraft-themed toy or gift can be a daunting task with so many available options in numerous categories, but we've pulled together some of the best for any Minecraft fan. Whether you're a Minecraft collector, an avid reader, a LEGO or board game fan, or you simply want to show off your love of Minecraft with merch or accessories, there's something here for you. Minecraft Minecoins is a particularly fantastic gift, as Minecraft is, at its core, a video game, and Minecoins lets players unlock entirely new worlds and enable their every creative desire.
Back in the real word, you can't go wrong with Minecraft's official novels or Minecraft LEGO sets, which offer alternative ways to engage with Minecraft's ever-expanding worlds while using your brain. Readers have plenty of high-quality and professionally written Minecraft novels to pour over, while LEGO has a wide collection of Minecraft sets for beginner builders and longtime collectors both.
