This is an old post. Check the updated version.
As we get closer to the holidays, like every year, we put together some gift ideas for World of Warcraft players. Year after year the list seems to get bigger and bigger since more and more products are launched.
The way we are going to list the products is completely random and the categories they are in are purely to keep things in the right place. The bottom listed gifts are not less important or lower quality, like I said, the order is completely random.
I really hope you’ll find the perfect gift for your WoW-playing friends and if you have any other ideas related to World of Warcraft please leave a comment below so others can find their inspiration as well.
These gifts are great for a wow player and great for the buyer as well. You don’t have to wait in line and you don’t have to play the shipping fees.
Everyone would love to see someone else paying for their game time. Trust me on this. Blizzard Store is the only place where you can buy this, so if you are interested follow these links:EU store, US store, KR store and TW store.
Pets / Companion Pets / Battle Pets
They use these pets as a show off, to use them in Pet Battles or simply to collect them.
You can buy an in-game pet from the same Blizzard Store I mentioned before. These days you can save up to 50% on some pets on Blizzard Store. If you are a WoW player yourself you can even buy them in game these days.
If you are interested in even more rare pets (more expensive as well) you should take a look at WoWTCGLoot.
Mounts are always cool and I know that a lot of players are very passionate on collecting as many mounts as possible. A mount can make a great gift for a friend.
You can buy a mount from the Blizzard Store, and if you are lucky you might stumble over some really nice deals this time of the year. Same as pets, you can buy them in game as well if you are playing the game too.
WoWTCGLoot is another place to search for mounts, but like their pets, these mounts are rare and they can be pretty expensive.
Note: If you are purchasing from Blizzard Store, make sure you choose the right region. If your gift is for an US player then you should buy from the US store. The codes you purchase are region based.
Mists of Pandaria and the new Battlechest
The last WoW expansion is Mists of Pandaria. This can be a great gift for someone who still misses this last expansion. Before buying this make sure your friend did not upgrade the game already.
If your friend is just starting or he hasn’t play the game in years you should take a look to the latest version of Battlechest. It’s a bundle of previous expansions which is pretty neat.
If you can not find the packs in a local game shop then you can buy them from the online Blizzard Store. You can select the digital version and this way you wont have to worry about the shipping costs either.
Visit the Blizzard Shop for more details.
Most WoW fans are willing to play other Blizzard games or at least to try them. So, a gift like Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2 would be a great idea for a WoW player as well.
World of Warcraft books and novels
World of Warcraft was always full of lore and stories. With every expansion the main plot evolves and we find more and more things about the main characters of this immense and fantastic world. Any WoW book is a great gift, but the latest releases are even better.
Shadows of the Horde is one of the newest publications, so if you are willing to pick a book as a gift, this is our recommendation.
WoW apparel and… more
Clothing and accessories
When it comes to World of Warcraft clothing I guess the J!nx shop is the best choice. You can find a huge variety of products there. I’m sure that a gift like that will make everyone happy.
Another shop is Musterbrand and if you are looking for some unique printed t-shirts you should take a look.
One of the wicked gifts in my opinion is something hand made and the best place to find something like that is Etsy. There are tons of sellers and even more products to choose from.
If you want to buy a poster for your friend’s wall then you should head over to Deviantart and check out some of their warcraft prints. There are a lot of talented artists there and you can find the style you like easily.
WoW Board Games and Play-sets
The first board game that comes into my mind is the World of Warcraft Monopoly. After playing with it a little bit I must say that this is a pretty cool gift.
Another great board game seems to be the World of Warcraft: Trivial Pursuit. I say seems to be because I haven’t try this one yet, but I’m sure it would make a great gift.
Mega Bloks playsets are the ones I’m talking about. If you want to give something like this as a gift make sure your friend likes to build things up. You can choose single items or big playsets, like this one.
WoW computer peripherals
A new gaming keyboard, a mouse or a headphone set or even a mouse pad… World of Warcraft themed! Well, this is something awesome. All the gamers out there will NEVER say no to something like this.
The most known and highly advertised stores are Steelseries and Razer. You can pick from a huge variety of products, you just have to know how much do you want to spend for these gifts. If you want you can buy a voucher and let your friend decide what exactly does he wants as a present.
Now that you know what you can get as a present, tell us what would you like to get as a present if you could choose from this list. Or maybe you’d like something that’s not on this list? What it might be?
Happy shopping everyone and happy holidays!
