The Ultimate Guardians Of The Galaxy Gift Guide

The Guardians of the Galaxy were once an obscure Marvel Comics team delegated to wacky space missions. After the work of Marvel Studios and James Gunn on the Guardians of the Galaxy film, though, the team has quickly become a household name and a beloved group of characters. They are the more comedic characters of the MCU, leading to some of the more laughter-infused scenes in Avengers: Infinity War.

With these characters getting proper cinematic treatment, it’s easy to know someone who is now a Guardians fan. If you know a Guardians of the Galaxy fan, then take a look at our gift guide.

10 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 1-2

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON 

The Guardians of the Galaxy movies are what made these characters extremely popular. Under the direction of James Gunn, these were wacky movies that centered around a family of misfits that learns to belong somewhere.

The movies were known for being funny, but also having a lot of heart behind them. It’s easy to care for Star-Lord and Gamora because of their backstories as well as how they’re handled in the films. There’s also a lot of style in these movies, with old ’70s music being used to punctuate scenes and add more meaning beneath the surface. They’re great movies.

9 AWESOME MIX VOL 2

One of the best parts of the Guardians of the Galaxy movies is their music. Most fans will start singing along to songs like “Come and Get Your Love” or “Hooked on a Feeling”. With the second Awesome Mix in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, more old songs were added to make the movie a great time.

Tracks like “Mr. Blue Sky” and “The Chain” are included in this fantastic album. Any Guardians fan will appreciate having this album in their collection, whether it be a digital gift, an audio CD, or a collectible vinyl. The music alone makes the purchase worth it.

8 DANCING GROOT FIGURE

At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, we get to see Groot reborn as a baby in a flower pot. While dancing to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, we’re treated to a funny scene between him and Drax. Guardians fans likely enjoyed this scene, which is what makes the dancing Groot figure a great gift.

This figure dances to the very same song from the movie, but it does a bit more than that. The figure has sound sensors, meaning that it will dance when music is played near it. On top of dancing to music, it makes a great decoration.

7 MARVEL LEGENDARY GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

If you’re a Marvel fan, then you should look into the Legendary card game. Players build a team of Marvel heroes and are tasked with stopping mastermind villains from destroying the world. The game was designed with many expansions in mind, and that includes the Guardians of the Galaxy expansion.

This set adds your favorite cosmic heroes to the bunch. Players have more characters to build their teams as well as new foes to face. This expansion also includes a few new mechanics to keep things fresh. That said, it requires a base set to use, as it does not function on its own.

6 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 MONOPOLY

Monopoly is a timeless board game of collecting properties and charging other players rent until they go bankrupt. The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Monopoly is the same game you’re familiar with but has all sorts of iconic imagery from both Guardians of the Galaxy films.

Players will make their way around the board to purchase different characters from the films, whether they be iconic faces like Rocket, or background villains like Thanos. While this board game may be titled with “Vol 2,” it’s more of an all-inclusive Guardians of the Galaxy board game, which makes it a great gift for fans.

Rocket is one of the more unique characters on the Guardians of the Galaxy. He is literally a talking raccoon with a knack for explosive devices. As such, he remains one of the franchise’s most memorable characters. For those that like Rocket, Funko more than has them covered.

This Funko Pop! figure features Rocket’s design from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. He is flying with his jetpack, as he does in the opening for the movie.
