Spirited Away Gifts
But try not to let them get spirited away!
For Company While in the Spirit World: Spirited Away Music Box
When in the spirit world, your loved one might need something to keep them company, and this hand-crafted wooden box just might fit the bill. The outside of the box is carved in an ornate pattern, but when opened, it displays Chihiro, the girl whose parents were transformed into pigs.
On the front side of the box is the Spirited Away logo.
A hand crank operates it, so there is no need for a battery or power source. Your loved one will treasure this small yet beautiful keepsake for years to come.
For Cosplay or Halloween: Inflatable Costume for Adults
Halloween will come to mean something completely different to your friend or family member after they receive the No-Face inflatable costume. The person steps into the costume, then another person zips them up.

In the movie, No-Face ate the gold and the waiter who served him. This No-Face coin bank toy does the same action when coins are added to the bowl it is holding. Once your loved one adds coins, the arms go up, and the money goes in No-Face’s mouth and into the holder.

Spirited Away: Miyazaki’s finest work
Spirited Away is a Japanese Anime film surrounding ten-year-old Chihiro and her parents moving to another town. But her father took a shortcut that led them to a tunnel leading to an abandoned village. Chihiro decides to explore the area when she meets Haku, a boy who warns her to cross the river before sunset.
But when she tries to go back, the river is flooded, and there is no way for her to get back. She then finds that her parents were turned into pigs.
Haku then tells her to get a job at the bathhouse to survive. She goes to the boiler-man, but he turns her away while telling her to go to the local witch who runs the bathhouse. The witch tries to scare her, but Chihiro insists, so the witch decides to hire her while renaming her Sen.
Sen doesn’t have an easy time working with the other bathhouse workers and longs for the days when she was back with her parents. She later invites the spirit No-Face into the establishment, believing him to be a customer. But he is a spirit and waits until Sen’s other customer, the “Stink Spirit,” reveals himself. It was a polluted river, and once Sen cleaned him, he thanked her by giving her a magic dumpling.
No-face saw this, then pretended to be a piece of gold, and swallowed three different workers.
Eventually, through a series of events, Sen’s curse is lifted, her name is Chihiro again, and she is reunited with her parents, who are no longer pigs. Neither of her parents remembered going through the tunnel, and they go on to their original destination.
How to Choose Spirited Away Presents
Now that you know what the movie is about and what type of gifts are available, how do you choose the perfect gift for your loved one? You’ll need to consider their interests within the context of the Spirited Away movie. You’ll also want to stay within a budget and consider their age.
Let’s take a closer look at these considerations.
Look at Their Interests
The main thing to remember is that there are several gift types for Spirited Away fans. If your loved one enjoys jewelry and has a collection of movie and serial-themed jewelry, look for those types of gifts. But if your loved one is more into decorating their home or room with culture-themed items, go for the posters or prints.
Consider Your Budget
If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on gifts, you’ll want to stick to the inexpensive items. Or if you’re buying for someone at the office as a Secret Santa and only have a budget of, say, $10, you’ll want to stick to the simple things.
However, if you’re buying for a close friend, family member, or intimate partner, then you’ll want to spend a bit more money.
What Is the Recipient’s Age?
You’re not going to want to get a wine bottle stopper for a 10-year old, but you also won’t want to get a child’s toy for an adult. This gift guide gives you a variety of options to choose from for various age groups. Of course, there will be some people who love plush toys at 40 and those who love advanced items at 15.
But remember, don’t give any child under three years of age things with small parts that can be swallowed.
And that’s a wrap! We hope you find something your friend or family member will like. Let us know in the comments if you found something particularly special!
