Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Lego

Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Foam Sword or Pickaxe

Another gift that's great fun but in no way practical is the Minecraft Foam Sword or Foam Pickaxe. They're light and totally harmless, but could become pretty annoying for parents and siblings after a while if the recipient takes a little too well to fake-slaughtering them.

Price: From £14.99
Foam Pickaxe
Foam Diamond Sword

Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Handbooks

There are lots of books available for Minecraft lovers, including a range of handbooks that'll help players master construction, combat and more. They're a good stocking filler too, available for less than £5 each.

Price: From £3.49
Available from Amazon.

Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Papercraft pack

Minecraft players spend a lot of time looking at a computer, so if you're hoping to drag them away from the screen to give their eyes a bit of a rest, how about enticing them with a Papercraft pack that lets you create your own 3D world to play with (in real life!).

Price: £19.99

Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Light-up Redstone Ore

This touch-activated lamp offers three modes of brightness that omit a warming red glow perfect for any Minecraft fan's bedroom. It's wireless, instead requiring two AA batteries, and it's stackable too, so you could pair it with a blue Diamond Ore version or more Redstone Ores if you fancy it. Just be aware that this light is smaller than you might expect, and will fit in the palm of your hand.

Price: £17.95

Best Minecraft gifts: Minecraft Light-up Torch

While we're on the subject of light, this officially licensed Minecraft torch would also make a brilliant gift that's both fun and practical.

Best Minecraft gifts: Online courses

For something super-nerdy but particularly interesting for some, there are several courses available from Udemy to teach you all every element of Minecraft, from its educational value to how to create a Minecraft server and start making money.

Coupons are available for Udemy so you can pay for the course in advance ready for the gift's recipient to redeem. That also makes it a great last-minute gift!
