Christmas is approaching and you have no idea what to buy that special someone who loves the Assassin’s Creed series. Well, in this post, I am going to offer some suggestions of gifts for an Assassin’s Creed fan!.
Let’s start off with books, because the there are a lot of book tie-ins with the Assassin’s
Creed series. Here is a goodread’s list with all the novels in publication order. Most are tie-ins with one of the Assassin’s Creed ggames, so if you know which one is you AC fan’s favourite, then you can make that gift a little more special. If you want a book that is a little more pricey but one that an Assassin’s Creed fan will love, then I suggest Assassin’s Creed: The Essential Guide. This book details pretty much everything you need to know about the series in one large hardback book.
Next up on my list of suggestions are the CDs of the soundtracks. Each game has its own CD available, so again if you know which game is their favourite, this could be a great gift, that feels personal. All the CDs are available on amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. I even included some easy links for you!
Onto figurines because like a lot of gaming franchises, Assassin’s Creed has a few different types available. First, you have the Funko Pops, which I’ll be honest, I’m not to keen on. I think that the Assassin’s don’t really suit the cutesy Funko style. Instead, I suggest you go to the Ubisoft official store. I have to admit, while their figurines are expensive, they are well made and look good. Also, if you have a Uplay account and earn Uplay points, you can use 100 points to get a 20% discount code for the Ubisoft store. If you want a slightly cheaper option, then the McFarlane range of figures maybe worth looking at. These are about a third of the price of the Ubisoft ones and can be obtained at retailers like Amazon.
If you have no idea who is their favourite Assassin or which is their favourite game, then I do have two more suggestions for you. The first is the official Assassin’s Creed Monopoly board game. Yes, Assassin’s Creed has its own board game. The board game is themed with locations from the series and the player tokens are different assassins from the franchise. There is also an Assassin’s Creed Syndicate version of Monopoly, which has locations from Victorian London on the board. Both these Monopoly versions are priced around the same as other Monopoly games, so they won’t make an expensive gift. The final suggestion I have is the Official Assassin’s Creed colouring book. This would be the ideal gift for an AC fan who wants to indulge their creative side. The colouring book has just under 100 pages, with quality pictures, from across the series, to colour in. Also at the back of the book are concept art and pictures from the series.
And there you have it, my gift ideas for that Assassin’s Creed fan in your life. All the items I’ve suggested, either I own or someone I know does and recommends them. Now there are a lot of merchandise for the Assassin’s Creed series and I couldn’t include them all, so if you have any suggestions, please write them in the comments below!
