The Best Gifts to Buy a Baldur’s Gate 3 Fan This Holiday Season

Baldur's Gate 3 gift guide, a Mind Flayer trophy and a plush of BG3's vampire Astarion.

Everyone loves Baldur’s Gate 3, which was obvious even before it won big at this year’s Game Awards. Between the fan-art, the live DnD sessions with the cast, and the sheer enthusiasm the gaming community has for this game, it’s a big, big deal. So if you know someone who loves this fantasy RPG, why not embrace it with our Baldur’s Gate 3 gift guide?

We’ve gone on a quest to bring you the ideal gifts to buy a Baldur’s Gate 3 fan, ranging from adorable Astarion plushies through wonderful but slightly pricey wall-art. Sorry, Baldur’s Gate 3 NPC body pillows aren’t a thing. Yet. So if you’ve got a Baldur’s Gate 3 present problem, solve it with our gift guide.

Astarion Plush

A soft toy of Astarion from Baldur's Gate 3.

As acerbic as Baldur’s Gate 3’s vampire Astarion is, don’t you just want to give him a hug? Well, now you can with this 11 inch plush soft toy. We’re 99% sure this isn’t official merchandise so we wouldn’t necessarily give this to a child. But if you or someone you know is an adult Astarion fan, you can’t really go wrong with this. Okay, that sounded a little wrong, but you know what we mean. There are also other plushes available if your loyalties lie elsewhere.

Baldur’s Gate 3 Deluxe Edition

Baldur's Gate 3's Deluxe Edition, with CDs, a fancy box, stickers and so on.

Baldur’s Gate 3 has, so far, been digital only, meaning you can’t take the game over to a friend’s house, sharing the Illithid gospel. But you can now pre-order a physical Deluxe Edition of Baldur’s Gate 3 which, on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, lets you install the game from disc. And that’s not all, there are a whole host of bonuses, including maps, a soundtrack and more. Even if you’ve already bought the game digitally, this’ll look gorgeous sitting on a shelf.

Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate

Based on Betrayal at House on The Hill, this board game set in the city of Baldur’s Gate is a DnD adventure with a difference. One of your group is, or could become, a traitor with their own horrifying agenda. For 3-6 players this delves into the murkier aspects of BG3’s titular city and, let’s face it, it’s a welcome change from Monopoly.

D&D Replicas of the Realms: Mind Flayer Trophy Plaque

An octopus-like Mind Flayer head mounted on a plaque.

This Mind Flayer Trophy Plaque isn’t cheap (just short of $500) but at 25″ inches tall, it’ll look pretty spectacular on any BG3 fan’s wall. Assuming, that is, you’ve not been just shoving those Mind Flayer tadpoles into your character’s mouth-hole. You wouldn’t do that… would you?

The Baldur’s Gate Collection

You don’t have to have played the previous games to understand Baldur’s Gate 3, far from it. But if you do want to know what went before, as well as gain a greater understanding of who some of the game’s ‘gods’ are, the first two games are well worth exploring. This collection includes BG1 and BG2 on PC, complete with expansions.

‘Gale approves’ stickers

We’re not sure how these ‘Gale approves’ stickers came to be, or the thought process that went into creating them. But now they exist, we want them. Lots of them. Buy as many as you can and stick them everywhere, to let people know that BG3’s magic-nomming wizard approves of you and your possessions.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
