45 of the best Stranger Things gifts to make fellow fans jealous
Our top picks
Stranger Things Polaroid OneStep 2
The best Stranger Things gifts are the products you can use in your everyday life, like this instant camera. Inspired by Polaroid’s original One Step model released in 1977, it wouldn’t look out of place in the hands of your favourite Stranger Things characters living in 1980s Indiana.
What makes this camera special is its branding – Polaroid turns things ‘Upside Down’, just like the TV show. It also adopts the recurring blue and red colours found in the Stranger Things universe.
The self-timer, built-in flash and rechargeable 60-day battery all make it easy to capture memorable moments.
Timex x Stranger Things stainless steel wristwatch
The high-quality watch maker Timex has created this retro design in celebration of Stranger Things. You’ll get a metal bracelet with a themed watch frame and the logo etched onto the underside – but there’s more to this timepiece than meets the eye.
You can play the show’s theme tune on demand or set it as your alarm. At 3:00, the Upside Down’s alternate dimension appears eerily on the screen for 20 seconds. Plus, you can uncover a hidden Stranger Things logo by turning on the INDIGLO night light.
As for the watch’s features, there’s a day, date and month display alongside the time, and a digital chronograph, which measures to an accuracy of 1/100th of a second.
MAC Cosmetics The Void Eye Palette
This fun eye shadow palette is one of the most unexpected collaborations to come out of Stranger Things, and is perfect for anyone who likes experimenting with make-up.
Reach for this clever MAC set whether you want to create a terrifying look for your next costume party or just add a bit of colour to your everyday make-up.
Each shade is inspired by a different element of the Upside Down, like the smokey taupe ‘Demogorgon’, the cool navy ‘Creel House’ and the punchy ‘Code Red’. They all come neatly stored in limited edition Stranger-Things-themed packaging.
Akedo x Stranger Things high-top trainers
Licensed footwear aficionado Akedo has created high-tops with a nod to all our favourite geeky franchises, including Fantastic Beasts, Wonder Woman and Jurassic World. Now, it has released two pairs to mark the popularity of Stranger Things – specifically, the ‘rock-culture vibe’ of the latest series.
Choose between the punk-y Hellfire Club high-tops and the more laid-back Tigers design, celebrating Hawkins High School’s familiar sports mascot.
Akedo doesn’t compromise on quality either, and every single pair of the brand’s canvas shoes is made to order in its Manchester-based studio.
Steve The Babysitter t-shirt
With his signature coiffure and amusing one-liners, everyone loves Steve – or, to give him his unofficial title, The Babysitter.
If you know a fellow Steve supporter, this officially licensed Stranger Things merchandise could make the perfect gift.
Choose between the black, navy and dark heather t-shirt, all with Steve, his iconic weapon of choice and nickname emblazoned on the front. There are sizes for both men and women.
