Best Gifts Fantasy and Scifi Fans

I love fantasy and scifi novels, movies and tv series. I guess it's the geek in me. Whether it's Harry Potter or Tolkien, Frank Herbert or Picard...

Gifts for fantasy lovers

I've found books, fairy posters, calendars, collectibles, t-shirts and comforters for you. From Goddesses, to Lord of the Rings, from Terry Pratchet's Disc World to Star Wars.

My favorite fantasy authors, movie themes and artists. I just love fantasy fiction. I do. I love Harry Potter as well as The Lord of the Rings (which my dad told us on our sunday walk). I love the mysterious art inspired by fantasy creatures... In short: I love everything about fantasy fiction. Here are my pages about the subject. LOTS of Harry Potter, but also my other favorite fantasy authors.

Harry Potter Gift ideas

Marauder's Map

Hogwarts gift ideas

What's more inspiring to kids than a school for learning magic? I can't think of much, aside from fighting bad guys and flying on broomsticks perhaps...

Harry Potter Room Decor

Dress up your room with Harry Potter pillows, plush toys, and banners. From the Marauder's map to the Snitch, from Hogwarts to Harry and his friends.

Gryffindor gift ideas - Hogwarts is divided into four houses. Harry's house is Gryffindor, where dwell the brave of heart :)

Slytherin gift ideas - Slytherin is the house in Hogwarts where all the bad guys go. Perhaps you feel like a villain yourself and want to show off belonging to Snape's house?

Ravenclaw gift ideas - Smart and sassy, perhaps that describes Ravenclaw house best. For the brainy Harry Potter fan. Luna Lovegood goes to Ravenclaw.

Harry Potter Movie Posters

Hufflepuff gift ideas - The most boring house in Hogwarts. However, Cedric Diggory (who was killed by Lord Voldemort) went to this house.

A reader says: Proud Hufflepuff over here! I would much appreciate it if everyone would stop dissing my house. Sure, pick on the nice ones! We're not boring, we just know what we want and do what we can to get it. Need I remind everyone we had Nymphadora Tonks as well? Stop house discrimination!

Gods and Goddesses

Where does fantasy end and religion begin? I sure don't know. In popular culture the two certainly overlap quite a lot. Whether these Goddess paintings strike you as fantasy or religious reality, they are sure beautiful and inspiring images of female power.

Susan Seddon Boulet Goddess Paintings

An artist whose art is still popular in the pagan scene, Susan Seddon Boulet will mostly be remembered for her goddess art. The mystical style of her paintings (mostly, but not exclusively, water color) strikes a core in many.

Star Wars Gift Ideas

The star wars series of movies doesn't really fit the label 'fantasy' - it's more science fiction. However, I do like Yoda and I think as a not-quite-human-with-special-powers, he may be considered 'fantasy'.

Tolkien's Fantasy World of Middle Earth

Featuring elves, trolls, orks, walking trees as well as dragons and intelligent eagles, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are perhaps the ultimate fantasy world.
My father read them both to us as we were growing up - both the books themselves and his summary of them on Sunday walks.

So of course we had to see the movies as a family project when they came out. Fortunately the Lord of the Rings movies lived up to our expectations, because getting our dad to a movie theater was a bit of a challenge in the first place. When I saw the first 'Hobbit' movie however, I was disappointed. The second was better, in my opinion.

Fantasy Calendars

Ciruelo Fantasy Dragons Calendar

In the world of fantasy art, Ciruelo Cabral's artwork is renowned. Known simply as Ciruelo, he is an accomplished painter with an international following. His artistic skills have brought the art of the dragon back into the limelight. The dragons depicted here will fascinate fantasy enthusiasts for the entire year.

As many of you know, I make a living as an online publisher. This involves writing about stuff that interests me, like the spiritual path and karma, spiritual book reviews and so on. However, to make ends meet, I also do product recommendations. 

That is: I recommend products, and you - the potential customer - get to have less of a chore finding them. It's a win-win, especially since I get a percentage for each sale. The deal is this: follow a link on any of these pages and buy something, and you - without any extra cost to you - are sponsoring me to keep on going. 

I've started out of course with spiritual gifts, but there are also calendars, laptops, iPads, Harry Potter gear etc. It's all stuff I have bought or would buy if my house room and pockets were infinite. They're not and that's OK.
