Warhammer 40,000 Presents: Do’s and Don’ts
With hundreds and hundreds of Warhammer products out there, you might be wondering how you’re ever going to narrow down your options for a single gift. Here are just a few tactics for sifting through the rocks and finding the gems!
Do: Figure out what they like about the game.
Some people play Warhammer 40K for the competitive strategy elements of tabletop gaming. Others are more into the artistic or commercial side of custom-creating miniatures. Some might completely ignore the game and focus on the lore of the books and video games! Do a little research to figure out why your gift recipient likes Warhammer 40K, and tailor your purchase accordingly.
Don’t: Buy them specific tools or miniatures unless they’re a complete beginner.
This is like buying a random DVD for a friend who likes movies. What if they hate the genre? What if they already own it? What if it isn’t the right region for their DVD player? You run the same kinds of risks when you buy kits or starter packs for a Warhammer 40K player. Unless they’re a total newbie building their collection from the ground up, you’ll probably want to steer clear of any gifts that could clash with their pre-existing interests.
Do: Look for officially licensed merchandise.
While it’s true that some knockoffs can be just as good as the originals, you’ll have to take extra precautions when buying them. Additionally, if you’re a non-fan just looking to support a friend’s hobbies, you might not have the necessary background in Warhammer lore to see when details are incorrect or specs are outdated. Some counterfeit products can even be dangerous to your health. It’s probably best if you just stick to licensed merch.
Don’t: Buy them something that they won’t use.
Resist the temptation to buy them something that they don’t need just because the Warhammer crest is printed on it. If they don’t have any use for a passport holder or insulated water bottle, an Imperial sticker isn’t going to change that fact. Instead, try thinking about presents that they’ll actually enjoy, and look and see if those specific things are available with Warhammer motifs. Be practical about your gift giving.
These are just a few things to keep in mind when considering Warhammer 40,000 gift ideas. Whether you’re shopping for kids who are new to the game or adults who were there for the very first edition of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader in 1987, these gifts should delight any fan!
