From Krampus to Stranger Things and everything in between, we’ve collected some fun/cool gift ideas for the horror fan in your life.
1.) ‘Tis the season for Krampus! Fright Rags, purveyors of horror t-shirts and apparel since 2003, have released a Krampus collection just in time for the holidays! Be sure to snag one of these awesome Krampus-themed apparel gifts for the naughty child/adult in your life…
2.) Phantasm sentinel sphere ornament. The ball is back! Mondo + Middle of Beyond have collaborated with legendary filmmaker Don Coscarelli to bring this ballsy Phantasm inspired ornament to life. Pre-orders are available here:
3.) Middle of Beyond also has this horror-ific The Shining hotel runner rug that is sure to liven up any hallway just in time for winter:
4.) What horror fan’s holiday season would be complete without a horror-themed ugly sweater, like these “killer” Friday the 13th, Halloween and A Nightmare On Elm Street inspired ones from Middle of Beyond:
4.) The Walking Dead fans – this IF DARYL DIES WE RIOT mug available at ThinkGeek will allow you to casually sip coffee while the world goes up in flames:
5.) American Horror Story merch. A bunch of great AHS merch can be found on the FX American Horror Story Gift guide site, including this Season 4: FreakShow-inspired tote and sweatshirt because – well, we are all freaks, am I right?
6.) Writer/Director Guillermo Del Toro is a modern-day master when it comes to telling ghostly tales, and The Criterion Collection has honored him with a trilogy set of his films including Cronos, The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labrynth. You can also find this on Amazon for a wee bit cheaper. If only it also included Crimson Peak!
7.) Ok so this isn’t straight “horror” per se, but who doesn’t love Labrynth? This Labrynth 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blu-Ray is worth buying just for the super-sweet box alone…
8.) If the horror fan in your life appreciates the “Master of Suspense” Alfred Hitchcock, they should dig one of these awesome limited-edition Vertigo posters by artist Jonathan Burton released by Mad Duck Posters.
9.) The man in your life needs these The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington pajama pants from Hot Topic. Don’t question it, just go with it.
10.) I’m sorry, but no 2016 holiday gift guide, horror-related or otherwise, would be complete without the following Stranger Things Christmas lights apparel from Hot Topic, ETSY and ETSY. On a side-note, #JusticeForBarb.
11.) *Bonus Idea* – This super weird Illuminated Amityville Horror House Replica, available via the The Bradford Exchange. The softly glowing resin sculpture is part of their “America’s Most Haunted” Illuminated Village Collection and is possibly the most creepy-yet-quaint horror-related holiday gift idea in existence…?
