To (mis)quote dear Uncle Ben—with great fandom comes great expectations for awesome gifts.
Okay, that doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but it’s still true! If you’ve ever needed a gift for a superfan, you know there’s pressure to find something they’ll love. But don’t worry, we’re here to help. We know some of the best Spider-Man gifts for even the most discerning Spidey fan.
So, without further ado, let’s swing into action and start giving you Spider-Man gift ideas that will be sure to satisfy the superfan in your life.
#1 Movies, Movies, Movies
Spider-Man is arguably Stan Lee's most famous creation. It was only inevitable that he would appear on the big screen. Spider-Man is no stranger to the silver screen. Tobey Maguire first took up the Spidey suit back in 2002, and Spidey’s been swinging into theaters ever since. After Maguire’s first three Spider-Man movies, Andrew Garfield took over as our favorite web-slinger until passing the mantle to Tom Holland, who continues as Spider-Man to this day.
Of course, all that Spidey time means plenty of Blu-Rays and box sets are available. And what are those movies? The main 8 Spider-Man movies are:1
You can opt for a box set including multiple movies or pick individual movies to fill in the gaps in your superfan’s collection. But what if your superfan already has all of Spidey’s main movies? Well, there are more options if you expand to movies where Spidey appears or movies that take place in the greater Spider-Man universe. Peter Parker's introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was highly-anticipated. Other movies you can consider include:2
#2 Marvel - Spider-Man Kids Gift Bundle
At CultureFly, we’re all about supporting superfans (after all, we’re all superfans ourselves). And while we love making gifts for adults, we also want to ensure we’re supporting the younger superfans out there.
If your Spidey superfan is still a kid, this Spider-Man kids gift bundle was made for them. It’s full of fun, spidey collectibles like snap bracelets and a 150-piece puzzle. It also comes with a tee-shirt, socks, and a wallet so your superfan can proudly show off their love for everything Spidey. It’s the perfect option for the young Spidey fanatic in your life.
#3 Spider-Man Video Games
You probably know there are a lot of Spider-Man movies. But what you might not know is the sheer breadth of Spider-Man video games that exist. Games featuring Spider-Man go back to 1982’s Atari 2600 offering: Spider-Man.3
Of course, if the superfan in your life is also a gamer, they’re probably not rocking an Atari 2600 these days. Thankfully some of the newer Spider-Man games are top-notch efforts that will satisfy even the most discerning gamers. They include:4
Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko back in 1962 when he made his first comic appearance in Amazing Fantasy number 15.5 Since then, he has appeared in or been the feature character in innumerable comics over the years. While the superfan in your life may be familiar with some of those appearances, they will likely not have read them all.
So, where best to start? The folks at Marvel Unlimited have compiled a complete starter list you can look at. Some of the highlights include:6
#5 Spider-Man Night Light
While Spider-Man has had some epic battles against the world’s worst supervillains, at heart, he’s still just your friendly, neighborhood Spider-Man. And that means looking over the little guy and protecting them from danger.
For the younger superfan, this night light can help them face their fears and brave the dark knowing that Spidey is always there protecting them from anything that may be lurking in the shadows.7
#6 Marvel - Avengers Collectors Box
Any superfan of Spider-Man is probably also a superfan of his team, The Avengers. The Avengers Collectors Box from CultureFly contains great collectibles for any Avengers fan. From unique art to Avengers apparel, this box is full of goodies your superfan will love!
#7 Spider-Man Engraved Decanter and Rocks Glasses
We’ve already covered some gift ideas for the younger Spider-Man fans, but what about the adults? After all, superfans come in all ages. Well, here’s a Spider-Man gift for adults. A set of decanter and rocks glasses feature frosted white engravings of Spidey’s iconic seal.
Is that your spidey sense tingling, or are you just feeling the effects of the whiskey? Add a fun twist to your next dinner party with this Spidey-centric drink set.8
#8 Costumes and Apparel
What better way to show your love for all things Spider-Man than wearing clothes emblazoned with Spidey and friends? There are numerous tee shirts and tops that feature Spidey and all of his superhero friends.
But maybe a shirt doesn’t go far enough. If the superfan in your life is looking to go full cosplay, then you can opt for a full Spidey suit. The suit won’t give you the ability to start slinging webs or crawl up buildings, but your superfan can at least look the part and feel some of what it’s like to be Spider-Man.9
#9 Phone Accessories
Unlike Spider-Man, our hands don’t have the unique sticking ability to keep us attached to the side of a building. However, when it comes to our phones, it sure does seem like they’re glued to our hands, doesn’t it?
Well, if we’re going to spend so much time with our phones out, we may as well make sure they have the best accessories. For superfans, that means accessories that feature Spider-Man or another character from the Spider-Man universe. Some ideas of accessories you can look for include:10
- Phone cases
- Wireless chargers
- Pop sockets
Just remind your superfan that with great phone accessories comes great responsibility (in other words: try not to drop your phone).
#10 Spider-Man Action Figures
As superfans, we love following the adventures of our favorite heroes. We also love to create our own adventures for our heroes to face. One of the best ways to make those adventures come alive is by playing with action figures. We can let our imaginations run wild, guiding our favorite action figures through their newest set of challenges.
And action figures aren’t just for kids. High-end action figures make perfect collectibles for adult superfans to show off on their mantle (and if the adult superfans want to play with their action figures too…well, your secret’s safe with us).11
#11 Spider-Man Tent and Camping Kit
Spider-Man was just a teenager when he became a superhero. That meant he had to be brave from an early age. He had to venture out into the world to protect his neighbors.
While the superfan in your life won’t be facing down criminals and supervillains (we hope), they too have many adventures ahead of them. And it all starts by stepping outside. This tent and camping kit ensure they’re well equipped for outdoor adventures. And, it’ll be good to know that Spidey is protecting them as they enjoy their backyard camping adventure.12
