Gift ideas for Stranger Things fans

The ultimate buying guide for fans of the Upside Down

The fairy lights that Will uses to communicate with his mother Joyce Byers in Stranger Things (Netflix, JG)

Stranger Things is over for another year, and we might have to wait a while to see what’s next for Eleven and co and resolve that post-credit scene.


But if there’s a person in your life who can’t get enough of demorgogons, the Upside Down and 80s nostalgia, take a look below for some Stranger Things inspired merchandise may make that wait a little less painful.

Expect some 80s themed packaging…

Role-playing fun

Stranger Things Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set


For those curious about Will’s favourite game which originated the name of the Domogorgon and Mind Flayer, look no further. This starter set includes a campaign created by Mike in the show, two demogorgon figurines and six dice all in a retro 80s packaging. Just be careful what you wish for…

Buildable thrills

Upside down Lego set


You know a franchise has made it when it gets its own lego set. The Upside Down lego set recreates the Byers’ home in both the real world and with the Upside Down version below, along with all they key Season One characters, Hopper’s truck and a light-up wall. Could have done without a lego demogorgon though…

For the board gamer…

For the collector…

Steve Pop! Vinyl Figure


Pop! continue their quest to make figures of every TV and movie character ever, including a new wave of Stranger Things season 3 Funko Pops such as Steve ‘The Hair’ Harrington in his iconic Scoops Ahoy outfit. Also available are new variants of Eleven, Billy and even a rather terrifying demogorgon figure.

Zavvi – £10.99

Light up

Friends Don’t Lie Mug


There are several Stranger Things mugs available, but this one looks suitably Christmassy even if it is a tad similar to the logo of the Friends TV show. The mug features Joyce Byers’ iconic Christmas list alphabet, which when filled with hot water lights up with Eleven’s quote ‘friends don’t lie’. Nifty.

Amazon – £12.95

One for the wall…
