If we had to choose
There's a ridiculous amount of officially-licensed merchandise out there for Minecraft, and chances are, there's something out there that will suit your needs or desires no matter what they are. If I had to choose one for myself, though, I would go with the Pig Riders Adult T-Shirt, as I think the design is really cool, yet not overly crazy as to draw unwanted attention to me while I'm out-and-about. Plus, you can get it at a fantastic price, which you often can't say about brand shirts.
People looking for something for the kids to play with should check out the Light-up Adventure Sword for its cool electronic effects that add plenty of play value, as well as the design and shape, which is accurate to the swords you see in the full game. If you're picking something up for someone who loves to read, then the 88-page adventure story within the Minecraft Graphic Novel will be perfect due to its neat take on the Minecraft art direction, as well as the fairly large size of the story overall.
