Stranger Things In Barb We Trust Poster

Barb Stranger Things Poster

She may have been a devastating casualty in season one, but you can bring Barb back to life with this poster. She may have been taken from us early, but she goes down as one of everyone’s most loved characters. So if you’re wanting to create a shrine for this special lady, this is a must. In Barb we trust.

Jada Die Cast 1:24 Stranger Things Hopper’s Chevy Blazer with Sheriff’s Badge

Hopper's Chevy

If you’re looking to build a Stranger Things collection or add to an existing one, then look no further. Hopper’s chevy racing around Hawkins is one of the sights of the show and you can bring his iconic motor home, along with this pretty neat Sheriff’s badge. But don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you have to go out and fight the Demogorgon.

Stranger Things: Volume 1 – The Netflix Original Series Soundtrack (2LP)

Stranger Things Season 1 Soundtrack

Go back to where it all began with the iconic season one soundtrack. When this show first hit Netflix in 2016 it was like nothing seen before, and it was accompanied by some truly fitting music. This soundtrack will transport you to a different era and make you desperate to re-watch those incredible opening eight episodes once again. A gift that’ll go down a storm with your friends.

4.

Stranger Things Eleven vs Demogorgon Pop! Movie Moment

Eleven vs Demogorgon

Everyone loves Pop! Vinyl figures but not many can quite compete with this one. This unique figure captures a heart stopping moment during an Eleven vs Demogoron battle and it’ll make a fantastic addition to any collection.

5.

Stranger Things Socks

Stranger Things Socks

Socks, the present that a lot of people give but the majority dread receiving, but this swanky pair buck that trend. These retro looking socks will transport you back to the 80’s and let’s be honest, they’re pretty damn cool.

Stranger Things (Hawkins ’84) 40 x 40cm Canvas Print

Hawkins Canvas

We’re not gonna lie here, there are so many Stranger Things posters and prints that we could’ve picked, but this canvas is eye-catching to say the least. Featuring the Demogorgon in all his glory, it gives a somewhat different view to the usual cute town of Hawkins. Can’t say it’s making me want to go on holiday there though.

7.

Polaroid Colour Film I-Type Stranger Things (Limited)

Stranger Things Polaroid

Ever wanted to bring Stranger Things through to your photos? Well these funky Polaroid colour films are certainly the way forward. Inspired by some of Hawkins’ most iconic spots, these designs will take your Polaroid photos to a new level.

Stranger Things 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack) Blue and White Splatter Clear LP

Stranger Things 2 Soundtrack

We can’t stress enough how good the soundtrack is across Stranger Things, so it won’t come as much of a surprise to you to see another one featuring in our list. This special edition features some seriously cool artwork including the likes of Dustin, Mike, Lucas, Nancy and Eleven along with the all important LP’s. Coming in a funky looking blue and white splatter design, this both looks and sounds pretty amazing. Super-fans of the franchise would love this as a gift – just sayin’.

10.

Stranger Things: Worlds Turned Upside Down (Hardback)

Stranger Things Hardback

When looking for a gift for a Stranger Things fan, it doesn’t get much better than this. This hardback will give them an insight into the makings of the show and what makes it tick. Featuring interviews with the likes of Millie Bobby Brown and David Harbour, original commentaries from creators Matt and Ross Duffer, a map of Hawkins and all sorts of special features, it is pretty awesome. It also includes a copy of the Morse code disk Eleven uses so you can decipher secret messages – pretty cool huh?

11.

McFarlane Stranger Things Demogorgon 10 Inch Action Figure

Demogorgon

What kind of list would this be without the Demogorgon right? This monster has been wreaking havoc in Hawkins and getting in some spectacular battles with Eleven for some time now, but he just refuses to go away. Well now you have the chance to see him for yourself with this scary action figure, who appears to be much safer than the real thing. Phew, that’s a relief.

12.

Stranger Things Steve with Sunglasses Pop! Vinyl Figure

Steve Pop! Vinyl

Is there a character who’s enjoyed a bigger revival than Steve? He didn’t make the best first impression in season one but now we’ve gotta say he’s up there with the best characters. He’s a real unsung hero and you can now pick up this Pop! Vinyl featuring his very own ‘Lucille’ baseball bat. Love this.
