Giving gifts is not always the easiest thing if you are not familiar with what someone is interested in. However, if you know that your friend loves anime, this helps narrow down your choices. Now it is simply about giving them the perfect gift. Here are some ideas to give your anime loving friend that they will fall in love with.
One of the best ways you can show appreciation to your anime loving friends is to give them things that you know they will truly love and appreciate. For anyone that loves anime, it is a certainty that they love and have a collection of manga. Giving your friends manga sets that they are familiar with and do not own yet shows just how much you pay attention to their interests. Additionally, this is also a great way to introduce them to any manga series that you yourself love and want to share the experience. This allows your friends the ability to explore their interests through other mediums and not just through television and shows, but also books, which is something that can be easily collected and proudly displayed.
If you don’t want to get more manga to give to your friend, perhaps their bookshelves are too full, there are plenty of other gifts you can give. With many animes, there are always going to be unique ideas to explore since there is such variety when it comes to the different shows and animes to choose from. There are always different types of replica merch you can give to your friends, and this will be highly appreciated because it will be tailored specifically to the shows or mangas they love. Consider things like replica weapons that can be used for decorations around your friends’ rooms or homes, or even used for cosplay at conventions and gatherings. Different merchandise from such animes like sculptures can also show their personality in the home, especially if they already have a specific aesthetic tied with their decor.
Everyone loves a stuffed animal or toy and there are plenty of different plushies when you consider all the animes out there. Of course, some animes fit better when in the form of a stuffed toy, such as the works of Studio Ghibli or even pokemon, because who doesn’t love a giant Snorlax or Totoro plush to go on your bed. This is especially great for younger fans but not limited to them, as many adults would love to receive these as a gift. Of course, if you are gifting plush, be sure to know your friend well to get them something from their favorite film, show, or even character within that series to make the gift even more special and appreciated.
Apparel Or Clothing
If you are looking to give something to a friend but unsure if you should be getting something outrageous and out of the ordinary, clothing and apparel are always a safe bet. You can never go wrong with a hoodie from a person’s favorite anime, and depending on their tastes, you can adjust just how exaggerated you want to get with the designs, from minimalistic designs that could function with everyday apparel, to huge prints on your clothes that tell everyone your favorite anime. There is always something for all types of anime fans, from the hardcore fans that rock with the dragon ball logo on their sweater or workout gear, to the casual fans that may only know the mainstream but still appreciate some throwback and nostalgia pokemon shirts. The great thing about getting clothing for your friends is they can use them in so many settings, whether it is lounging around the house or going out.
One other gift you can give is toys or collectibles. These are perfect ideas for any anime fan. Similar to other merchandise and apparel, toys are always being created for your favorite anime and you can find many collectible anime-lovings for almost anything you are a fan of. There is a lot of value in these as adults as collectors are always looking to complete their set. Of course, kids might not give that much thought and prefer to play with the toys themselves. Showcasing your collection is always another decorative choice for many anime fans and you will be helping build that display for your friends.
There are so many options and choices when it comes to anime-inspired gifts. There is a huge amount of anime to consider and you should definitely find out which ones are their favorites. As long as you understand which anime they have a special love for, the gifts you give will surely be appreciated.
