Minecraft’s popularity shows no sign of slowing, offering a blend of block-based building and running away from exploding green guys. So what do you do if you’re looking for gifts for someone who’s into the game? That’s why we’ve put together this Minecraft Gift Guide, with gifts from Lego to lamps. And with the holiday season upon us there’s no better time to get shopping.

Minecraft: Guide Collection 4-Book Boxed Set
Minecraft doesn’t give you all that much in the way of instruction, letting you find your own way through the world. So this collection of Minecraft guides is right on the money for anyone who’s just starting to get into the game. And, in an impressively stylish case, they’re not short on presentation. There’s also an 8-book set if you want to spend a little more.
LEGO Minecraft The Deep Dark Battle Set
Minecraft and Lego go together like two things that go very well together. So it’s no surprise that there are a whole host of Minecraft Lego sets, covering a wide range of in-game locations. But we’re particularly fond of this The Deep Dark Battle Set, with its spooky atmosphere and menacing Warden. And with 584 pieces and an age rating of 8+, this should be well received come Christmas Day.
Minecraft: Gather, Cook, Eat! Official Cookbook
Know anyone who eats, drinks and sleeps Minecraft? With this official Minecraft cookbook they can take those first two literally. From Suspicious Stew to Torch Shooters, you can make your own Minecraft authentic recipes. There are over 40 recipes though, compared to the game, there have been a few necessary tweaks.
Minecraft Creeper Light
This Minecraft Creeper lamp is an excellent little nightlight in its own right but it also makes a distinctive Creeper noise, ripped straight from the game. And it’s easy to turn on too, just one push and you’ve got his glowing green face keeping you company at night.
Minecraft Plush Enderman Soft Toy
Sinister, staring.. what more could you want in a soft toy? This 8-inch Minecraft plush Enderman might be offputting to non-Minecraft but for anyone who’s had to deal with them in-game, being able to hug this one is a step up.
Minecraft Block Building Lamp
This Minecraft Block Building Lamp is the coolest of all the gifts, sorry Lego. The way it works is that all the blocks light up but you can rearrange them as you see fit. So you build this lamp and rearrange it as you see fit. Want the TNT on top? Just switch some of the blocks around and you’re good.
