It can be hard to come up with something original to give to your partner on Valentine’s Day. If you want to avoid the standard flowers and chocolates type fare, it’s a good idea to think about what your loved one actually loves. If it’s Game of Thrones, we’ve got you covered.
There’s a bunch of GoT-themed merchandise available but we’ve whittled down the options so you don’t have to. Here are the five best gifts for your Game of Thrones-loving Valentine, whatever your budget.
1. Jonerys Dorbz
What says ‘perfect match’ better than the union of star-crossed lovers Jon and Daenerys? This pair was always meant to be together – in so many ways they’re so right for one another. OK, so she might be his aunt – but that’s ok in her culture. The Targaryens are known for keeping it in the family. And once Jon realises who he really is – the son of Rhaegar Targaryen, Dany’s brother – he could be alright with that. There’s a lot of funny business going on in Westeros, an aunt-nephew relationship is small potatoes in comparison. So tell your other half what they mean to you with a pair of Jon and Dany Dorbz! They’re adorbs.
2. Dragon Egg Wine Stoppers
If your other half loves wine as much as they love Game of Thrones, with these Dragon Egg Wine Stoppers, you’re onto a winner. Although, you have to ask how much they actually love wine if there’s any left in the bottle to warrant the use of a wine stopper. They are, however, so good looking that you’ll open bottles of wine before guests come over just so you can present the bottle with the stopper inserted.
3. Cosy Sigil Hoodie
Subtlety is key when it comes to wearable merch. Unless, of course, you’re cosplaying. Then, you want to go all out. But for everyday, a real fan appreciates a low-key item. This hoodie will definitely become a favourite, with its understated white on grey marl print that showcases the sigils of the four noble houses of Lannister, Stark, Targaryen and Baratheon. Designed to look like snowflakes, they’re also a stark (ahem) reminder that winter is coming. It comes in sizes Small to XXLarge.
4. Adult Colouring Book
Colouring in has superb therapeutic properties. Great for people who like to practice mindfulness, this GoT colouring book is also a treat for fans of the Westeros-set TV show. Buy your partner the gift of relaxation when you give them this thoughtful present. Pictures are intricately drawn and invite you to bring life to portraits, cityscapes and landscapes from your favourite series.
5. Ornamental Tankard
Game of Thrones The Seven Kingdoms Tankard: £59.95; currently unavailable in the US.
Not only is this tankard something your partner will want to proudly display, but it’s also something they can actually drink out of. It’s got a removable stainless steel insert, which makes cleaning easy. Decorated with the Game of Thrones logo and a map displaying the Seven Kingdoms, it makes a gorgeous gift to keep forever. Other designs are available.
…And Don’t Forget the Card!
If you’ve yet to get your Valentine a card, go all out and get them a Game of Thrones 3D card. There are three varieties — one featuring a pop-up Viserion and the Night King, another featuring a pop-up Iron Throne, and a third featuring Euron’s ship. They’re blank inside for your own message and cost $15 in the US and £14.95 in the UK!
