Lord of the rings games
1. Lord of the rings - A card game
If you love board games and Lord of the Rings, then you should definitely check out Lord of the Rings - The Card Game.
It's a cooperative and strategic card game set in Middle Earth. It can either be played solo or as a group. And it has many different expansion packs available for you to buy.
The card game has a really active following with podcasts, Youtube videos and Podcasts dedicated to the card game.
To learn more about the Card Game - check out the following Youtube video from Watch it Played on how to play. You can also check out Cardboard of the Rings - a podcast dedicated to the card game.
2. Lord of the Rings Board Games
There are so many amazing Lord of the Rings Board Games. But I've left a few of my favourites above. Monopoly is always a classic. And I always enjoy a twist on this classic game.
War of the Rings takes a lot longer to play compared to other board games. However, it's the most faithful to the original books and it's a great choice if you like a tactical board game.
Journeys in Middle Earth is a roleplaying game ideal for beginners. If these don't appeal to you, then check out this post from Dice Breaker for even more Lord of the Rings Board games
4. Lord of the rings chess set
If you want to buy a gift that will be used – a chess set could be a really good option. There are some truly beautiful chess sets to fit every budget on Etsy. Handmade, vintage and even magnetic.
This chess set and board are homemade. The chess board is engraved with a Gothic York Rose Motif. It's been hand painted in aged silver and Antique white.
This is a much more expensive gift. But if you know a chess fan then this is a gift they will truly treasure forever. The attention to detail is absolutely spectacular.
Lord of the Rings hoodies and jumpers
5. White Tree of Gondor Hoodie
You cannot go wrong with a comfy, cozy hoodie. This hoodie contains a print inspired by the White Tree of Gondor.
Practically every bookworm lives in cozy sweatshirts. This cozy sweater is perfect for curling up and reading a good book.
This print is simple but really beautiful. The white colour is cozy and would look adorable with lots of different outfits. This would be perfect for when you want to be cozy but also look cute and stylish
6. Lord of the Rings Jumper
I'm OBSESSED with this Lord of the Rings Jumper. You can never have enough cosy jumpers to snuggle up in. And this quote instantly reminds me of Gandalf in the mines of Moria.
It's available in 7 different colours including a gorgeous maroon. I personally really like the black as it's an easy colour to pair with lots of different outfits.
And it's also made with 80% cotton so it'll be super cosy to snuggle up in. Perfect for a cosy movie night re-watching the Lord of the Rings movies.
7. Lord of the Rings Jumper
How stunning is the design on this sweatshirt! The design is inspired by Anduril - the blade that was broken. The artwork and line design is absolutely stunning.
It's made with super soft cotton. And the neutral colour and simple design mean it would work with lots of different outfits. You could easily pair this with a pair of jeans in winter for a casual and cute outfit.
Whether this is worn out and about or to keep warm at home. Perfect if you like to be comfortable but still look cute.
8. Mirkwood Jumper
I couldn't resist mentioning another Lord of the Rings jumper. I could write a whole post with cute LOTR hoodies and jumpers. Etsy has so many options!
I really love the design of this jumper. It's such a vibrant design and reminds me of camping or hiking in the forest. It's available in 4 different colours but I am obsessed with this beautiful green.
It's the perfect casual and cute Lord of the Rings jumper. The perfect extra layer for travelling, running errands or just relaxing at home.
Lord of the rings jewellery
9. Arwen Evenstar
I absolutely love my Arwen Evenstar necklace. It's the perfect jewellery item if you love the books and the elves. The design is also obviously LOTR but subtle enough to wear with different outfits.
There are different price options available depending on the quality. They range from costume jewellery to Silver and Swarovski crystal.
If you're looking for something you can wear everyday then this necklace is perfect.
10. The One Ring
I couldn't write a post about Lord of the Rings merch without mentioning The One Ring. This is the perfect gift for Lord of the Rings fans.
This is a beautiful replica of The One Ring. It's made from golden anodised stainless steel. And it comes with a chunky chin and a black storage box.
This is ideal for wearing under clothes like Frodo or displaying on your bookshelves.
11. Lord of the Rings Elven leaf Pin
Another classic jewellery piece for Lord of the Rings fans. Pins make such good gifts and are really underrated as merch. They are perfect for decorating bags, jackets or even on display on a pin banner.
The unique design means that it can be worn as either a pin or a pendant. And this makes it really versatile.
Pins are another easy (and affordable) way to share your appreciation for a book. They can easily customise different items of clothing such as jackets, hats and tote bags.
Personalised Lord of the Rings gifts
12. Personalised Lord of the Rings Glass
I have way too many glasses and mugs at home. It's seriously a problem. But I can't resist this personalised laser etched Lord of the Rings Glass. It features elvish script and the tree of Gondor. And it can be personalised.
It's available in different sizes such as a pint glass, whiskey or high ball. Perfect for a nice cold drink.
They're also a great way to store pens in on a desk. And it's a nice reminder of the series, while you're hard at work.
13. Lord of the Rings Bookmark
If you're a book lover then you need to check out this personalised Lord of the Rings bookmark. It's a wooden bookmark with your name transcribed in Elvish, Dwarf Runes or Hobbit font.
I'm forever on the hunt for pretty bookmarks. And these are super pretty! I absolutely love that these are personalised. They would look fantastic paired with the books.
Bookmarks are a really great value way to show your love for a book. Plus they're also very useful.
14. Personalised Lord of the Rings Mug
I have way too many mugs at home. It's seriously a problem. But I can't resist this personalised LOTR mug. It features a quote from Gandalf and can be personalised with your name.
You can never have enough mugs! I say that but I genuinely can't fit all of mine in the kitchen cupboard. But seriously, who doesn't love to have a nice hot coffee in a cute mug.
15. Personalised Lord of the Rings Coasters
The wooden name can be personalised with a name in Elvish script. They are made from solid oak and varnished.
This would make a great gift for a colleague who loves Lord of the Rings. They are also a great way to add a touch of Lord of the Rings but on a budget.
Lord of the Rings Artwork
16. A Light in Dark places foil print
Prints and posters are a great way to prettify your space and show your love for a fandom. This A4 holographic print is excellent value for money.
I love the holographic foil paired with the Light of Galadriel. It's really pretty and makes such an eye catching poster.
Art Prints are another really good value Lord of the Rings gift idea. They can easily jazz up some bookshelves or fill an empty space.
17. Lord of the Rings print set
You can also get these in multiple sizes from A5 to A3. So they are the perfect option if you want a smaller size or a statement piece.
18. Middle Earth Map
There is something so magical about a fantasy map. Honestly, I always look to see if there is a map in the front of my fantasy books. The artwork that goes into them is so incredibly beautiful.
A fantasy map prints make great gifts for fantasy lovers. They come in all different sizes. Plus you can get download options online.
I'm obsessed with this Middle Earth map print. It's a cotton canvas that's hand stretched and stapled on wood frames. It is ready to hang, so only one nail is needed for hanging.
Other Lord of the Rings merch/gift ideas
19. Lord of the rings Funko Pops
Looking for something to make your bookshelves super cute? Check out these cute funko pop. For the longest time, I didn't understand the appeal of Funko Pops. But they look super cute decorating bookshelves. And they're a great way to show your appreciation for your favourite characters/
These Funko Pops will delight any LOTR fan. I especially love the Gimli Funko Pop - his expression is so perfect.
If you're a bookstagrammer, these also look excellent in photos. They make an excellent photo prop and are a great space filler.
If you're looking to buy a gift for a book lover -then a funko pop from their favourite book is a great idea.
20. Lord of the Rings doormat
21. Elven Valley Book nook
I'm convinced book nooks are the future. I seriously think everyone should have one on their bookshelves.
I haven't been able to get this shelf insert out of my head since I first saw it. As I said earlier - I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan. And this Elven valley is insanely beautiful.
It's made from wood and crafted using lazor cutting. They also offer a bookend version. And an option for personalisation - something I don't see offered very often with book nooks.
22. Tolkien Society Membership
I love getting a subscription as a gift. It's a present that you receive regularly afterwards. If they're a Lord of the Rings fan then you should consider getting a Tolkein Society Membership. The organisation has been promoting the work since 1972.
You get the Amon Hen newsletter six times a year. You also get an annual every Christmas. You can choose a postal version or an online version. They also hold various different events and awards.
23. Custom Library Stamp
This bookplate stamp shows the Doors of Durin. It can also be personalised to add your name underneath. You can use ink to place this stamp on your books.
This would look so insanely cute on any of your books! And if you're a Lord of the Rings fan I highly recommend. The same Etsy shop also sells a version with Bilbo Baggins' front door - you can get it here.
24. LOTR Taters Printed Apron
This is another really unique gift idea! Perfect for any fans of Samwise Gamgee. This apron is printed with the famous 'Taters' quote.
If you know a LOTR fan who also loves to cook (or fancies themselves as a bit of a grill master) then this apron is perfect.
25. The Hobbit T-Shirt
This t-shirt features the Hobbit mountain design on the front with the 'There and back again' quote. It's also available on both black and white.
The t-shirt is absolutely gorgeous. It's a simple but easily recognisable design. The basic colours and design mean you could wear this with lots of different outfits.
If you're looking for a comfy tshirt to wear around the house - this would also be a great pick.
