10 Game of Thrones Seasons 1-7 on Blu-ray

SEE IT NOW: $119.99

In the weeks leading up to the show’s final season, catch up on the last seven seasons with this Blu-ray box set. Not only is binge-watching the series to have everything before the final season fresh in your memory a good idea, it’ll be great to have all the classic episodes available to watch at any given time.

Some can only be rewatched in sequence when you binge a full season (and there’s nothing wrong with doing that on a rainy Saturday), but others stand on their own, like “Battles of the Bastards” and “Watchers on the Wall.” It’s an ideal gift for GoT fans.

9 A Song of Ice and Fire box set

SEE IT NOW: $32.07

Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin’s series of novels, A Song of Ice and Fire, and any real fan of the show needs to read the books that they're based on. Not only is it fun to see what they kept the same in the adaptation and what they changed, they’re also just brilliantly written books.

They’re told from a bunch of different characters’ perspectives and the stories are expertly woven together. Martin hasn’t finished the book series yet, but this box set compiles the first five: A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast of Crows, and A Dance with Dragons.

8 HODOR Door Stop

SEE IT NOW: $19.20

This item falls neatly into the category of merchandise that is a fun reference to the show and is also practical. This “Hodor” doorstop acts as a doorstop, so it has real-life application, but it also references the Hodor character in a fun way. We all remember the harrowing scene that revealed where Hodor got his name – and the fact that all he can say is the word “Hodor.”

He was echoing something going on in Bran’s consciousness by yelling out, “Hold the door!” as he had a seizure, and the words eventually melded together into “Hodor.” Now, you can immortalize that scene with the “Hodor” doorstop.

7 A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook

SEE IT NOW: $23.79

The characters of Game of Thrones enjoy a very specific cuisine, because they live in an alternate version of medieval history. They eat lemon cakes and pork pies and even something called honeyfingers. If you’ve ever felt peckish watching one of the feast scenes or even just been curious about what their food might taste like, then this is the cookbook for you.

They eat all different kinds of foods based on their social class or their job or their location, so there’s a lot of recipes to choose from in this book. Don’t just watch Game of Thrones – eat like its characters.

6 Risk: Game of Thrones Strategy Board Game

SEE IT NOW: $74.95

We’re all familiar with Risk, the board game in which players compete to dominate the world. There was even an entire episode of Seinfeld that followed Kramer and Newman playing the game. It’s great fun. You each take on the role of a political power attempting to take over the world.

Well, that’s what Game of Thrones is all about – a bunch of political factions trying to take control of Westeros and seize the Iron Throne. So, the good people at Risk created a Game of Thrones version of their board game, so you can live out the internal power struggles that go on in the show.

5 Game of Thrones Sculpted Dragon Egg Candles

SEE IT NOW: $27.99

Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, had three dragon babies, so it’s suitable that these dragon egg candles come in sets of three. They have each been beautifully crafted with attention to detail and all the little ridges carved into them. Each candle is made of wax and colored with the accurate colors from the series: red, green, and gold.

The dimensions of each dragon egg candle are 2.36” x 3.35”, so they’re a decent size and last for a long time before burning out. This is officially licensed merchandise from the show and it’s a must-have for any fan.

4 Game of Thrones Carved Wooden Hand Crank Musical Box

SEE IT NOW: $12.99

The theme music from Game of Thrones, composed by Ramin Djawadi, is one of the most memorable and iconic theme tunes in recent memory, matched only perhaps by Bear McCreary’s catchy theme music for The Walking Dead. It suits the opening title sequence, which takes us across a sweeping 3D map of Westeros, perfectly.

This is one of those cool music boxes that you crank with your hand to make the music play. It plays the theme tune from Game of Thrones and has the phrase “Winter is Coming” carved into the wood in the recognizable font from the series’ logo.

3 Funko POP Rides: Game of Thrones – Dragon & Daenerys

SEE IT NOW: $28.99

When Daenerys Targaryen first became a mother to three dragon babies, she struggled to get them to behave, as most new parents do (although most new parents have babies who are humans, not fire-breathing dragons). Eventually, she managed to tame them and they grew to respect her.

Now, she has been able to use them to her advantage as they fly out to protect her from her enemies and breathe fire on people who mean her harm to burn them alive. This Funko Pop! action figure celebrates that as it sees Daenerys riding on one of her dragons’ back, flying into battle.

2 Game of Thrones: Music from the HBO Series: Season 7

SEE IT NOW: $23.85

Part of what gives Game of Thrones its epic feel is the cinematic visual flair and big-budget action set pieces. But another big part of it is the musical score, composed by Ramin Djawadi.

The series’ music is as great as ever in the seventh and most recent season, as Djawadi has become accustomed to the feel and sound of the show, more than before. Djawadi won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series for his work on the Season 7 finale “The Dragon and the Wolf.” Isolate that music from the series and really listen to it with this soundtrack.

1 Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros

SEE IT NOW: $19.25

Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros is the perfect coffee table book for any fan of Game of Thrones. The show has one of the most richly detailed and beautifully realized fictional worlds of any show on the air. Westeros has as much history and geographical detail as the real world, and yet it was conceived entirely in the mind of George R.R. Martin.

Since the HBO show is engaging in its own plot and doesn’t dig too deep into the backstory and geography of Westeros, author Matthew Reinhart put this book together to fill in the gaps.
