The holidays are slowly closing in on us like a freak storm with a perfect circle of shrinking safe space in the middle of it. And if you didn’t get that reference, don’t worry: Your Fortnite-loving friend or loved one did. If you have them on your shopping list this year, you’ll want to make sure you’re grabbing them something that pays proper tribute to their online-gaming obsession.

Here are some perfect gift ideas for that Fortnite fan in your life.

Red-Nosed Raider POP

Red-Nosed Raider Pop From Fortnite

Plenty of Funko’s big-headed vinyl figurines pay tribute to Fortnite. But this Gamestop-exclusive is one of our favorites. She’s even properly festive to match the season. This antlered, ugly-sweatered character is one of the several alternate costumes players can throw onto their in-game character.

It’s a rare one, too, so if your Fortnite player hasn’t unlocked it yet, this figure is just as good, if not better.

Monopoly: Fortnite Edition

Monopoly: Fortnite Edition

This special themed version of the board game that has ruined more family gatherings than dry turkey cuts out the real-estate frills and re-creates the free-for-all battle of the video game in an analog version.

It maintains more than just the Monopoly name, however. Passing the “Go” space has game consequences. But instead of the player who does it collecting money, it just brings the iconic Storm closer in. And instead of houses and hotels, players build defenses to help protect them from their opponents.

Rainbow Smash Pickaxe Replica

Fornite Rainbow Unicorn Pickaxe

If your Fortnite player wants to own a little bit of the game, consider this life-sized copy of the Rainbow Smash pickaxe. In the game, pickaxes help players harvest materials and break down both opponents’ structures and their own unwanted creations. But this one is several times more magical.

The Rainbow Smash is a majestic 39 inches tall. It has the head of a unicorn on one side and wheels on the other in case the recipient wants to hop on this mystical pony and ride.

Fortnite action figures

Fortnite Skull Trooper Action Figure

The artists at McFarlane Toys have brought their considerable skills to bear on this line of 7-inch action figures based on Fortnite character skins. The options include the Skull Trooper, Cuddle Team Leader, and the Black Knight.

Each comes with over a dozen points of articulation to help them really nail those emotes, along with a special base and game-accurate accessories. This means special pickaxes and powerful weapons to make them look as authentic as possible. They’ll make a solid addition to any cubicle or display shelf.

Dance Dance T-shirt

Fortnite Dance Dance Shirt

One of the most popular and enduring elements of Fortnite is its emote system, which lets players make friends, celebrate good plays, or just goof around in the middle of a match.

This shirt from Mad Engine showcases an assortment of the in-game dance moves players can bust out to let the world know how they feel. This shirt even works for non-Fortnite players because it’s really just a bunch of character silhouettes dancing. And really, who can’t appreciate some sweet dancing?

POP! Keychains

Funko Pop Fortnite Keychain

Figurine creators Funko know that not everyone wants a bunch of vinyl stuff sitting around not doing anything. Fortnite fans who expect their geek gear to earn its keep might want to get their hands on one of these items, which combine the cuteness of full-sized POPs with the utility of a keychain.

Like the other offerings from Funko, these capture several different characters from the game. The lineup includes the Love Ranger, Rex, and the Dark Voyager. Your Fortnite player will appreciate both the ability to carry their love for the game with them everywhere they go and the fact that their keys will be way harder to lose.
