There are quite a few Final Fantasy tabletop games available, including various board games and the Final Fantasy Trading Card Game (Which has a competitive scene.) Board games are undeniably fun even in today’s digital world, and Final Fantasy TCG as a gift could be a great way to get someone into a new game. If the person of interest is already a player, there are a variety of accessories such as playmats, deck boxes and card sleeves, which would all make exceptional gifts.

Figures, statuettes and collectible items are almost always a hit when it comes to gifts. For many fans, possessing objects like figurines and themed merchandise make them feel closer to the series or franchises they love. Some examples of these include the wide array of Final Fantasy action figures (Play Arts -Kai-) and products like music boxes that play certain game or character themes.

Plushies, being the cute, squishable delights they are, make for an endearing gift. The Final Fantasy series is home to some very captivating creatures and characters, many of which we’d love to be able to display or even just hold close. Yes, Sephiroth too is quite huggable in plush form, even with his menacing little sword.

Music is a medium through which individuals can relive certain moments, making soundtracks and CDs a remarkable and nostalgic present. With a vast selection of genre-specific arrangements, special edition sets and even vinyl options, you can never go wrong with the gift of music.

6. Jewelry

Taking from our favorite characters or moments, the Final Fantasy jewelry line features gorgeous recreations of pieces seen in the games; for example, from the Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy, the engagement pendant worn by Serah Farron and from Final Fantasy XV, a necklace of the arcane Ring of the Lucii. There are also many articles that, while not replicas of a specific in-game object, are inspired by characters or mascots (I.e. a Moogle pendant.) Jewelry is always a meaningful gift, with themed jewelry going the extra mile by giving individuals a sense of closeness to the series’ or titles they love.

Whether it be collections of trivia or nostalgic art, books always make a suitable gift.
