Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and most people celebrate by giving gifts to their loved ones. With the popularity of the MCU in full effect, it's likely that you know someone who is a serious Marvel fan. If you're getting a gift for a boyfriend or husband who is a Marvel fan, you'll want it to be special and not something that's run-of-the-mill.
It can be difficult to know what sorts of gifts a Marvel fan would like, but this list covers a wide range of ideas. As you gear up for Valentine's Day, celebrate that special Marvel fan in your life with this gift guide.
Marvel Studios Visual Dictionary
Is your significant other always thirsting for knowledge about every little thing involving the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well now you can make sure he's up to date on every detail pertaining to the movie world of Marvel.
This current (for now) visual dictionary of the MCU features full color photos and profiles of every hero, weapon and gadget that has ever appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far, making it the perfect companion for his (and your) Marvel movie marathons.
Avengers: Infinity War is one of the biggest movies to date, being a culmination of every other MCU movie up to that point. It got tons of praise and broke plenty of box office records. However, Avengers: Infinity War was directly inspired by a comic series known as The Infinity Gauntlet.
In it, all the Marvel heroes in the world have to work together to stop Thanos, who is trying to destroy half the universe for Mistress Death. It's every bit as bombastic as the film, and in some ways is even more intense. If your significant other hasn't read this arc yet, what better time to start than now?
Marvel Trivia Box Card Game
If your significant other is a whiz when it comes to Marvel Comics, then the Marvel Trivia Box card game is a good way to go. The game features dozens of cards that have questions about events and characters from the comics. Movie fans will be able to make do, so casual players won't be terribly lost.
The game also comes with character cards for many popular Marvel heroes, such as Daredevil, Spider-Man, and Luke Cage. Even for those who don't understand the comics, it can still be a fun time with lots of people. That said, this is a game made for serious Marvel fans.
Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years Anniversary Collection
If your Marvel fan is also an avid book reader, this collection could be just what you're looking for. The set contains novel versions of 12 of Marvel's movies released in the past ten years. Even if the books end up being subpar reads (translation of a film to a novel can be tricky sometimes), that doesn't mean that they're a bad choice.
The novels all have a uniform cover design and are all set in an attractive box that would look great on any Marvel display. Seeing the minimalistic artwork on the covers alone might be worth the purchase. Furthermore, having the entire collection is always a nice touch.
Black Panther Vinyl Soundtrack
Black Panther was recently nominated for best soundtrack. With neat orchestral themes as well as some tracks from Kendrick Lamar, it's easy to see why so many people praised the music in the film. If your special Marvel fan enjoys this music, this is a must-buy for them.
The vinyl contains tracks that are both from the movie and inspired by the film, so it gives you some new beats to listen to. While turntables are a bit uncommon these days, the collector's aspect of having this vinyl more than make up for it. All of the tracks are contained in an attractive case that shows a portion of Black Panther's costume.
Marvel Studios Phase Three Part 1 Region Free
Many Marvel fans became that way because of the movies. With so many coming out over the past ten years, it's difficult to have them all. However, there is a way you can knock off a portion of the collection with one fell swoop. Marvel has released box sets for their various Phases, and the latest one contains the first half of Phase Three.
This set includes Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok. Another big draw of this box set is that all the movies are contained in cases with similar attractive designs.
LEGO Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition Building Kit
The Hulkbuster is one of the most impressive armors Tony Stark ever created. To have a replica of one on display is sure to make any Marvel fan go wild. While many people outgrow LEGO sets as they get older, there comes a time when a massive, well-designed set draws people back in. For Marvel fans, there is no greater set than the Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition.
This massive set contains a full build of the Hulkbuster armor with over 1000 pieces. It's not scaled with LEGO minifigures (it's much larger), but the look of the set itself is so good that it probably won't make much of a difference.
Marvel’s Spider-Man For The PlayStation 4
After years of DC Comics having the best video games on the market, Marvel and Insomniac Games struck back with Marvel's Spider-Man on the PS4. This game has been praised for having one of the best interpretations of Peter Parker to date (yes, that includes the movies as well).
Insomniac proved that they understood what players would want in a Spider-Man experience, granting players the ability to swing through Manhattan, take on bad guys at any turn, and soak in all the familiar imagery from the Marvel Universe. It's arguably Marvel's best video game to date, and Marvel fans love it.
Kotobukiya Marvel Now! Wolverine ArtFX+ Statue
Ever since Hugh Jackman's last appearance as Wolverine in Logan, there hasn't been a whole lot of love for this powerful member of the X-Men. That said, he is still one of Marvel's most popular characters, and what better way to honor him than by having this statue up on display?
The well-crafted figure takes inspiration from the Marvel NOW! line (which Marvel fans will recognize and appreciate). It stands at 1/10th scale and even has magnets in his feet to keep him upright on a display. This Wolverine statue would look fantastic on a desk with the sleek gold and black costume and adamantium claws.
SockShop Men's 4 Pair Marvel Comics Mix
Colorful socks are all the rage these days, and this four-pair is a great way for someone to show off their Marvel spirit. The socks each have a consistent pattern that only varies in color with each superhero. Featuring designs of Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, and Wolverine, Marvel fans are sure to go nuts over these socks.
