12 Gifts for One Direction Fans Because Sometimes Posters & CDs Aren't Enough

British boy band One Direction has been heating up the music scene over the past few years. American fans in particular can't seem to get enough of these five hot pop stars from across the pond. Chances are high that you know someone who fits that description (if not yourself, of course). Maybe your best friend is obsessed with Harry Styles (his hair is fantastic, after all). Maybe your younger sister has a poster of Zayn Malik above her bed. Maybe your person for Secret Santa at your workplace secretly owns all their CDs and knows the words to all of their songs by heart.

No matter who they are, you know they have their heart set on receiving a One Direction-themed gift for the holidays. But you don’t want to get them something that is generic, boring, or ridiculously cheesy — which, let’s be honest, a lot of merchandise marketed toward fans is one or all of the above. You also don't want to get them something that they already have (CDs and posters come to mind). Take a glance through this slideshow of gift ideas that the 1D fan in your life probably doesn’t have already — and definitely will want!


For the person who loves STRONG coffee just as much as they love the One Direction song “Strong” (or maybe even more).
