Stranger Things has been a huge presence in the TV game since the first season came out last year, and with Season 2 having just premiered a couple months ago it’s still all that everyone’s talking about. Plus, it’s not fair that any of us should have to wait until possibly 2019 for more Eleven and the gang, so why not bring some Hawkins Holiday cheer to your own Christmas list or the fans in your life with these gifts inspired by the show below!
AV Club Hoodie
$24 – 5 Colors
You won’t need Mike’s permission to join the Party if you have your very own Hawkins AV Club sweatshirt!
Steve Harrington Sweatshirt
$28 – 2 Colors
It may be hard to find someone who doesn’t want Steve Harrington for Christmas, and now they can at least tell the world with this tacky Christmas-inspired sweatshirt. The diehard Steve Harrington fan can wear it all year so that no one ever forgets where they stand with the Mom of the Year.
Tacky Christmas Sweatshirt
$20 – 4 Colors
Keep it classic with this Christmas sweatshirt that features both the Upside Down and the Alphabet Wall!
The Upside Down Sweatshirt
$24 – 13 Colors
Or if you just wanted to get a simple sweatshirt that isn’t super blatant about being Stranger Things merch you could go for this understated Upside Down sweatshirt.
A cheap and easy gift for any Dustin fan is his infamous trucker hat. You can grab it at Amazon for under $10 and could even get it embroidered or personalized!
Nothing beats a good Stranger Things mash-up and this Starry Night inspired print is combining two fantastic (yet totally different) works of art and will be a total eye-grabber on any wall!
Will’s Stranger Things 2 drawing would make for a really cool addition to any room and it comes in a few different sizes too. You can buy one or channel Joyce Byers and buy 100 to cover your entire house.
Surely almost any fan of the mysterious and crazy world of Hawkins, Indiana would love to add the Stranger Things inspired Ouija bored to their collection. Plus if you’re up for it, it could make for an interesting Christmas day activity.
Same for Monopoly! Who knows how long Target will be carrying this themed game and you do not want to miss it.
El’s Eggo Card Game
With the Eggo card game, you can play as Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Eleven, Hopper or Barb. Each card played can either send a player’s character to the upside down, make an opponent draw 2 cards, reverse the order of play, summon the Demogorgon, or cause a rift that sends everyone who was Right Side Up to the Upside Down, and vice versa! Players must escape from the Upside Down and get rid of all their Eggo cards before the Demogorgon attacks. Succeed, or be a burnt waffle.
I can’t think of a better way to wecome someone into a Stranger Things obsessed home than this awesome welcome mat.
This throw blanket is PERFECT for a day of binge-watching, which can often feel like you’re stuck in the Upside Down after eight hours of TV and a ton of pizza.
The mug speaks for itself, really and is a great addition to any coffee & Hopper lovers collection.
Squad Goals Mug
There’s nothing like sharing a cup of coffee with your favorite squad!
If you know someone who loves Steve Harrington and loves coffee, look no further than this mug.
If you’re looking for a more subtle Stranger Things mug, this Hawkins Police one could be perfect for you!
Bob Newby Superhero Mug
$18 – 2 Sizes
Honestly, Bob deserved better!

E.T. was one of the 80’s classics that inspired Stranger Things, which is why this phone case is such a cool thing to own – it’s a great homage to both the movie and the show!

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
