How to choose the best present?

Gifts that are cho­sen tak­ing into account a person’s hob­bies or hob­bies are con­sid­ered uni­ver­sal.

Selection Guide

The fol­low­ing tips will help every­one make the right choice among the rich avail­abil­i­ty of goods.

  • If you are going to present a gift to a stranger or unfa­mil­iar per­son, be guid­ed by his gen­der. You need to know this, espe­cial­ly if you decide to present any of the clothes or acces­sories (bags, belts, etc.).
  • Find out your favorite ani­ma­tion genre and choose a memen­to relat­ed to his favorite ani­me.
  • When choos­ing a gift for a friend, it will not be dif­fi­cult for you to find out which ani­me pic­tures he has already watched, which ones he liked the most, and which caused only neg­a­tive reviews. All the infor­ma­tion obtained will help you when you go to the ani­me prod­uct store.
  • Remem­ber that the main task of any pre­sen­ta­tion is bright and pleas­ant emo­tions. It is not nec­es­sary to give any item, and what can be pre­sent­ed instead of things — you will find out lat­er in the arti­cle.
  • If a per­son has been fond of ani­me for more than a year, he prob­a­bly has themed prod­ucts. Find out about his per­son­al col­lec­tion so as not to buy an exist­ing item.

Practical gifts

For con­nois­seurs of not only cute, but also prac­ti­cal things, you can pick up a use­ful present. The fol­low­ing options are great:

  • mugs;
  • stands for pen­cils and pens;
  • cos­met­ic bags;
  • wal­lets;
  • pen­cil cas­es;
  • note­books.

And much more that can be found in mod­ern ani­me goods stores. The choice is so great that you have to spend enough time to eval­u­ate the entire range. All these things dif­fer from ordi­nary prod­ucts in that they are dec­o­rat­ed with the­mat­ic sym­bols and images of ani­me char­ac­ters.

Also prac­ti­cal gifts include cloth­ing and acces­sories:

  • scarves;
  • bags;
  • t‑shirts;
  • pite;
  • hats.

Pleasant trifles

Small gifts instant­ly cheer up and delight their own­er. When look­ing at a gift, he will def­i­nite­ly remem­ber who it was pre­sent­ed to.

The fol­low­ing sou­venirs can be attrib­uted to this type of prod­uct:

  • icons;
  • key rings;
  • pen­dants;
  • bijouterie;
  • sta­tionery;
  • posters.


Fig­urines with favorite char­ac­ters will delight any fan of ori­en­tal ani­ma­tion. In the assort­ment you will find both small fig­urines that will be placed on the edge of the desk in large num­bers, as ll as large fig­urines, for which avid fans install spe­cial pedestals and shelves. It is worth not­ing that large mod­els cost a lot. The high­est price is set for col­lectible prod­ucts.

Fig­urines of ani­me char­ac­ters dif­fer not only in size, cost and theme. The qual­i­ty of assem­bly and the type of con­struc­tion also vary (the abil­i­ty to change the body posi­tion of the mod­el). A fig­urine of your favorite char­ac­ter is sure to delight any fan of ani­ma­tion.


Some ani­mat­ed pic­tures reflect the nation­al Japan­ese cul­ture. Such works often fea­ture apons used by the war­riors of the Land of the Ris­ing Sun in ancient times. Melee apons are a won­der­ful gift for guys who are inter­est­ed in this top­ic. It is bet­ter to look for such a present not in an ani­me prod­uct store, but at the points of sale of sou­venirs.

A present in the form of knives is also suit­able for the fair sex. Many mod­ern girls are not alien to hob­bies that re pre­vi­ous­ly con­sid­ered exclu­sive­ly male.

We give emotions


Many fans of ani­ma­tion cul­ture are into cos­play. Guys and girls trans­form into their favorite char­ac­ters, imi­tat­ing visu­al­ly and emo­tion­al­ly fic­tion­al char­ac­ters. To save the result, the­mat­ic pho­to shoots are arranged. In this case, as a gift, you can present ser­vices of a pro­fes­sion­al pho­tog­ra­ph­er and rent a pho­to stu­dio. Girls who col­lect pic­tures are espe­cial­ly fond of such sur­pris­es.

As you know, demand cre­ates sup­ply. Due to the high pop­u­lar­i­ty of East­ern ani­ma­tion cul­ture and the large num­ber of fans of this genre in the CIS coun­tries, the­mat­ic events began to be orga­nized on the ter­ri­to­ry of the above states. As a rule, fes­ti­vals take place over sev­er­al days and include an exten­sive enter­tain­ment pro­gram.

Most often, enter­tain­ment of this type is arranged in large cities of the coun­try, but due to grow­ing demand and an increase in ani­me fans, fes­ti­vals began to be held in small­er set­tle­ments. A tick­et to such an event will be the per­fect gift for a fan of Japan­ese ani­ma­tion.

If a friend has the oppor­tu­ni­ty to trav­el to a the­mat­ic event in anoth­er city, you can pur­chase a tick­et to the fes­ti­val for a friend remote­ly.

Where can I find a gift for an anime fan?

Many peo­ple who are not inter­est­ed in this direc­tion are won­der­ing where to find the right gift for an ani­me fan. If you live in a large city, check for themed out­lets in the mall. Also, suit­able prod­ucts can be ordered via the Inter­net, many stores oper­ate online and offer deliv­ery of goods any­where in the coun­try.

Pop­u­lar online shop­ping sites that pro­vide a rich assort­ment of var­i­ous types of prod­ucts (clothes, elec­tron­ics, cos­met­ics, etc.) have a spe­cial sec­tion of ani­me goods.
