How much do you love Minecraft? If I were to ask my daughter that question the answer would be her hands spread wide paired with an ear-to-ear grin as she exclaimed “this much!”.
Minecraft is all about the blocks – creating entire worlds and all their contents out of cubes made from a variety of material types. She plays in creative mode only so she gets an unlimited supply of building supplies. She has created a number of seriously impressive buildings, including an entire zoo and a world full of huge dinosaur statues.
Not only does she like the game she also loves Minecraft gifts like plush Minecraft piggy and Minecraft t-shirts. I love that there seems to be more Minecraft merchandise that has become available over the last year or so. Here are some options for Minecraft gifts to give this year.
The Minecraft games – If they don’t already have the original Minecraft game definitely start there with the Xbox One S Minecraft Favorites Console Bundle. If they do then consider picking up Minecraft: Story Mode. It’s very different gameplay than the original Minecraft but provides significantly more story.
Minecraft Card Game – Play Minecraft anywhere with this Minecraft card game. Mine, craft and reserve resource cards, but watch out for TNT and Creeper cards! This is a great option for a stocking stuffer or if you want to give a small taste of Minecraft before you purchase the video game.
Minecraft Minifigs – Another great stocking stuffer idea are Minecraft minifigs. Bubbles loves opening blind boxes and blind bags to see which collectible she’ll get.
Minifigure Collector’s Case – If you’re giving Minecraft minifigs consider also adding one of the collector’s cases. It’s definitely the easiest way to make sure they don’t get lost (or you don’t step on them in the middle of the night).
Survival Mode Playset – Kids (and adults, no judging here) can continue their Minecraft play offline with this playset. You can manipulate the included pieces into more than 50 different combinations, letting you create a base for your own adventures.
Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator – This is one of the coolest Minecraft items I’ve seen. Create your own stop-motion videos using this stage which includes six background cards, four exclusive figures, and more than 18 accessories.
You can find all these Minecraft gifts – and more – at Best Buy. There is still time to stop in before Christmas to pick up a game, a few toys, or that neat movie maker, and to make your Minecraft fan cheer.
