The Ultimate Vikings Gift Guide

Currently in its sixth and final season, Vikings has had a steadfast following ever since it became the breakout hit of 2013. Now a legacy series for the History Channel, it has successfully and authentically followed the historical events surrounding one Viking family and their kin through political upset, familial struggles, and the hardship that comes with war and conquest.

Originally following the life and times of Viking farmer Ragnar Lothbrok as he upset his chieftain and began the conquest of the British Isles, the series has shifted away from the Norse warrior, following his sons (whose life events align with real historical figures), his former wife Lagertha, and his brother Rollo. Longtime fans of the series love it for its attention to detail, its robust look at the Viking culture, and its strongly realized characters. Celebrate your love for the series and flaunt your Viking style with these gifts fit for Odin himself.
