Minecraft Holiday Guide

It's that time of year again. When everything seems all so much more cheery, the world outside is covered in snow, forcing you to stay indoors and play video games. (Minecraft specifically, if that wasn't clear).

Other than lots of video games, [one of]the greatest parts of this season is the acts of kindness by gifting others with, well, gifts. Here we have 10 Minecraft Holiday gifts great for your friends, family, or fish!

#1: Minecraft - The Game

First on our list is well, Minecraft! Have a friend who seems interested but just hasn't gotten the game yet? Well here is your chance to gift them the game itself. Welcome them into the cult..I mean...Club of Minecraft! Now you don't have to spend those cold wintry nights playing survival alone! At only about $27, its a great gift to give at a medium cost!

#2: Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator

Next up on our list is the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator. Make your own mini stop animation movies the same way the Lego Movie was made.....What? You tell me you DO NOT know what legos are? .....You know those blocks that everyone says Minecraft looks like? Besides the point, this is a great gift for anyone who has patience, a steady hand and a smart phone. Please, do not be that person to get someone this who doesn't have access to a smart phone. That is like giving a smart watch to someone who does not have a smart phone. "Oh here is this really awesome gift, that you do not have the other half to." At only about $22, this is cheaper than the game, and will need hours of dedication (very similar to the actual game).

#3: Minecraft Papercraft Overworld

3rd we have likely the cheapest item on this list. Its the thought that counts right? No just kidding, this is actually an amazing gift for all use origami fans alike. Minecraft Papercraft allows you to create 3d paper models of your favorite minecraft entities. From the scary cat ocelot to the bouncy slime, there is something for everyone! And do not worry! This isn't real origami (i would know) as everything is pre-cut and ready to be assembled with easy. With no glue involved either, this is a clean, fun and easy gift. With this set, you can create an army and take over the world with PAPER! Fun fact: These are at 1/16th scale.

#4: Minecraft Diamond Ore Light

Need a good night light (Hey, the dark is a scary place, always light it up. Minecraft teaches you that) or maybe a fun paper weight. The ThinkGeek Light-up Diamond Ore is a great fit for you then! Blue not your color? Never fear, redstone is here! (Too bad there isn't a gold ore version, then we could get some instinct action in here). I personally have this and would say its awesome. Lights up nice, if only i had some more, and maybe some cobble and dirt ones. Then i could build a world! At 19$, its a great gift for whatever its use will be!

#5: Minecraft Diamond Sword

Ready to show the world what a true warrior you are? Well now is your chance with the ThinkGeek Foam Diamond Sword. (Yes, i know its not real diamonds, you have to pretend!) Diamond not your style? Then check out the gold version, or maybe the best one of all. Stone. Fight to the death, or til dinner, which ever comes first with these awesome swords. Also available are pickaxes, for all you hardcore miner fans. At $28, you get to bring a 1:1 scale prop from Minecraft a live. 

#6: Minecraft Mystery Mini-Figure

You like misery i mean mystery? (well maybe misery too if you have bad luck). Try your luck with the Minecraft Collectible Figure Mystery Blind Box. Find little mini figures similar to those of the Minecraft Stop-Motion Movie Creator. If you get lucky, or have the time or money, you may eventually find them all! But at $4, they are great little gifts to give, maybe you can have a plastic army instead!
