LEGO mania has flooded the world of toys and folk culture, and now there are many LEGO lovers who have all grown up. The classic sets are available in all shapes, sizes and prices and make great gifts. However, if you are looking for something more creative LEGO fan in your life, have a look at our selection below.
LEGO Stud Tape ($ 23)
Thanks to the patent protection of LEGO's building system, there are now many other toys from other manufacturers. None is as versatile as LEGO-compatible tape: Roll-on, adhesive tape that lets you attach LEGO figures and stones to almost any flat surface. It's inexpensive and will be a great addition to any LEGO-style bedroom or desk, making fans creative everywhere. This ribbon is available in a variety of colors and sizes from a variety of manufacturers.
Minifig Packs (from $ 5)
The LEGO mini-fig is almost as iconic as the brick itself, and many fans compulsively collect the small and interchangeable LEGO people. If your fan does not get enough of it, you can find lots of places selling loose minifigos in random assortments, or you can spot single and rare minifigures on secondary markets like eBay and Amazon. Not interesting enough? In Etsy look for creators' specially crafted and crafted minifigs for the few pop cult properties that are not yet LEGO-ready.
Minifig Head Mug ($ 15)
Nothing helps a ten-hour build session like coffee (or maybe cocoa, if the LEGO fan is not old enough). Why not put your drink in the spirit with this minifig-themed mug? You can not do anything with it, but it looks good sitting on your desk or coffee table next to ready-made sets. As an alternative for LEGO fans, you can choose a mug that is a gigantic version of the cups used by the minifigures themselves or one that is covered with construction sticks.
LEGO Stationary Set (from $ 10)
LEGO has an official selection of office supplies with bricks that fit into a pixel case with a flat base plate, with the idea that you can snap your pens, pencils, rulers, and other classroom detritus into a perfectly organized space , This stuff is meant primarily for children, but I think there are many adults (especially in the fields of design and architecture) who are happy to get it for a birthday or vacation. Start with the pen box, then search Amazon for "LEGO Stationary" to see the rest of the set.
Brick Separator Tool ($ 5)
LEGO bricks are manufactured with a tolerance of 10 microns. If they fit together, they can not fall apart without great effort. This may make deconstructing sets (or compensating for mistakes) mandatory, not to mention nail breakers. These divider tools come with some of the more expensive sets, but are easy to lose and come in handy as you become more creative. Grab a handful and fill in your favorite things. Your LEGO fanatic will thank you.
More elaborate LEGO sets are displayed on shelves and other furniture, but they are inherently fragile – not to mention a serious pain that stains from all the exposed bolts. Keep these large sets that need to be seen to see them safe and clean with a transparent display case. Cases for model cars, ships, and airplanes work well, but make sure you measure the assembled set that you want to protect, and order a matching cover. Amazon has many options for generic cases and even some for Minifig collections, but iDisplayIt sells high-quality cases tailored to specific LEGO sets.
Shelves (over 50 USD)
Speaking of displays: serious LEGO fans need places where they can hold all the sets when they're done, or they just sit in a closet that nobody appreciates. Like a committed bibliophile, a LEGO lover will never reject a beautiful display shelf as a gift. You can drive cheap with useful garage-style shelves, buy some decent shelves in a department store, or use full bookshelves. Remember to prioritize multiple levels and shelving depths so they can view their largest projects.
LEGO Key Holder (from $ 15)
LEGO recently crafted an official key holder that allows you to use a standard brick on your keyring and attach it to the wall instead of a traditional key holder. Oddly enough, the set does not seem to be in production anymore, but there are currently many unofficial alternatives to Amazon and Etsy. You can even make your own: just cut a base to the size you want, glue it to a wood or metal base with mounting holes, and hang it against the wall. You can add minifigures or other decorative elements as you like.
Lighting Kits ($ 20+)
You want the extra mile? For some of the largest and most popular LEGO sets, there are retrofit lighting sets. They require the receiver to disassemble and reassemble the kits with LED lighting and batteries installed. But for the real LEGO fan this is half the fun! Lighting Kits are a great extra gift for a larger set, but if you purchase them separately, make sure your receiver already has the right set.
Brick Loot Subscription ($ 28 per month)
Besides the official LEGO sets, there is a whole universe of LEGO-oriented things, and the Brick Loot subscription box is a great way to immerse yourself in them. This monthly subscription includes customized sets (with instructions) and LEGO-centered mailboxes each month, each with a theme. These include exclusive minifigures and accessories that are nowhere to be found.
