Do you have someone on your Gift List who is a TIMELESS fan? If so, you have an opportunity to make their day by sprinkling a bit of their obsession inside those pretty wrapped packages.
Here’s a non-definitive guide on items out there to consider. I’ve tried to include things in every price range, as well as making sure to focus on both the items you can find at all the main retailers, as well as special picks from Small Business merchants so you can #ShopSmall and feel good about your gift choices!
Gifts for All Price Ranges
Was “The Party at Castle Varlar” their favorite episode so far? Could it be because of the appearance of Ian Fleming? You have a Bond fan on your hands then. If they don’t have the Ultimate Bond Collection, you’re going to want to fix that. They may also like the book Ian Fleming: A Personal Memoir by Robert Harding, who was a friend of Mr. Fleming starting back in World War II.
For those who were really drawn into the episode “The Alamo” and want to know more, there’s a book called The Blood of Heroes that goes into depth on the history of the battle, as well as the main characters in the conflict. The History Channel also had a great mini-series last year, Texas Rising, that started at the Alamo and continued past to show the path to creating the Republic of Texas.
Or are they into NASA and the Space Missions? You’ll win big points with the From the Earth to the Moon mini-series created by Tom Hanks for HBO, or the NASA: 50 Years of Exploration box set. There’s also the photobook Earth & Space: Photographs from the Archives of NASA to show them the beauty of worlds beyond ours.
If your fan is planning a future in time traveling, they are going to need a few things. First, there is the Time Traveler’s Guide to Time Travel which will serve as a handy reference guide to keep them from becoming their own grandparent or creating the 13th paradox. They are then going to need to know How to Build a Time Machine, and they should know the history of time traveling before they take their first trip. Plus, they should watch a few cautionary tales, including Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Time Cop, and who can forget the Back to the Future series? And if you’d rather use magic instead of science, you’ll want to grab Hermione’s Time Turner instead.
Here are just a few select ideas to get you started.
My favorite shirt from over at Woot.com is the “It Came Out of Nowhere” in which two very familiar time machines crash into each other. On Redbubble.com, this shirt amuses me a lot. And all wanna-be time travelers need a good coffee mug to proclaim their procrastination efforts. Don’t forget the tea either! I’ve found two different choices you can pick from!
There you go! This is not a definitive list, but it’s a good starting point to get your Timeless fan on your list taken care of. If you have any additional ideas that should be added to the list, hit me up in the comments and I will update.
