9 Gifts That Will Cheer Up 'Walking Dead' Fans

If you've made your list and checked it twice and realized that you need to find the perfect gift for a Walking Dead fan, you may be truly stumped for something to put under their tree. It can be tough, especially if you don't watch the series yourself. But if that's the case, don't you worry, because I am here to help you find a unique gift that any fan of the AMC zombie series is sure to love. In my experience, Walking Dead fans tend to have a delicate mix of macabre and humor, just like the show often does, and all of these gifts walk that line.

This particular show's fandom is possibly even more rabid than the walkers on screen. They take it seriously and as a friend, partner, coworker, relative, or anything else in their life, the pressure is on to find a gift they'll actually enjoy — especially this year. Ever since the villainous Negan came to town, things have been really rough for characters and fans alike. So if you want to bring some cheer to their holiday, here are nine gifts to get the Walking Dead fan in your life.

1. The Walking Dead Mug

The Walking Dead Heat Sensitive Mug, $12, Amazon

This thing is awesome and any The Walking Dead fan would be psyched to start their morning with this perfectly scary mug. It's heat sensitive and changes colors when exposed to hot liquid, which makes the gory design even better.

2. Rick Grimes' Sheriff Backpack

Rick Grimes' Sheriff Bag, $65, ThinkGeek

This is an absolute must-have for Rick fans. Whether they're a young fan still in school or an older Walking Dead fan in need of a new bag to carry their belongings around, this backpack is perfectly badass.

3. The Walking Dead Pillow

The Walking Dead Coral Pillow, $26, Etsy


4. The Walking Dead Survival Kit

The Walking Dead Survival Kit For One Person, $90, Amazon

This gift is a splurge, but if there's someone you're willing to spend this much on, this survival kit for a zombie apocalypse is both fitting and useful. Inside the Walking Dead bag are items you could actually use in an emergency, like a first aid kit, body warmer, flashlight, and more.

5. Walker Nightlight

The Walking Dead Zombie Nightlight, $18, Amazon

I don't know if this zombie light will keep them awake or help them sleep, but either way, it will be an awesome gift.

6. Daryl Dixon Crossbow Lamp

Daryl Dixon Crossbow Table Lamp, $80, Amazon

Another splurge, but the image of a lethal weapon on their bedside table is bound to make any Daryl Dixon fan happy.

7. Custom Engraved The Walking Dead Cutting Board

The Walking Dead Cutting Board, $20, Etsy

For the zombie-loving cook in your life, this is a perfect gift. You can have it engraved with anything you would like and adds some serious edge to any kitchen.

8. Charm Bracelet

The Walking Dead Weapons Bracelet, $24, Etsy

Who says a bracelet made out of weapons for the apocalypse can't be delicate and beautiful? There is a crossbow for Daryl, a gun for Rick, and a charm that says, "Keep calm and kill zombies," among others. Perfection.

9. Negan-Inspired Keychain

The Walking Dead Lucille Keychain, $16, Etsy

Whether you're shopping for someone who loves Negan and wants to honor him with this keychain, or someone who hates him and wants to steal his signature weapon for themselves, this keychain works.

Thanks to these gifts, you can make a Walking Dead fan's holiday bright, even after the deadly start to Season 7.
