These unique and magically inspired gifts will make fantasy readers swoon!
I shared a great big list of gift ideas for book lovers. But fantasy readers are in a league of their own. They not only read about magical places, fantasy book lovers often like to immerse themselves in the fantasy lands they read about.
Just look at the fandom industry. Any person who loves Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or A Song of Ice and Fire (also known as Game of Thrones) is an easy person to gift-shop for. There is no shortage of novelties relating to the fantasy genre.
Readers who love books about magical and mythical beings and supernatural forms will love these gifts for any occasion!

Originating in the mid-1990s, George R. R. Martin’s fantasy saga A Song of Ice and Fire has exploded on the fantasy scene with A Game of Thrones, the HBO screen adaptation.

Many readers get their start with children’s fantasy, and The Chronicles of Narnia is a popular entry point. As such, elements of Narnia invoke feelings of nostalgia in many readers of all ages. Who wouldn’t want their favorite space to smell like their favorite book? This cedar, pine, and snow scented Winter in Narnia candle will leave lovers of The Chronicles of Narnia enchanted.
Star Wars fandom is usually associated with the movies (especially since Disney got it’s hands on the franchise).

(Please don’t hate me for the bad pun. 😉 )
Potions are essential in the worlds of magic.

From cupid crystals to regermination potion, and even screaming snakes hair potion, these handcrafted potion bottles are simply charming.
