Congratulations! You’ve successfully converted your friends into Hunger Games addicts (or made friends with other Hunger Games addicts)! Now we move onto step two: Feeding the addiction.
Luckily, the holidays are the perfect time to schmooze with the rest of the fandom via Hunger Games gifts! After all, what say “neutral holiday lovin’” quite like presents based on a series about political struggle and death! And since Victor’s Village isn’t really a fan of ridiculous merchandise or mass consumerism, we promise that these products will appreciated by MOST Hunger Games fans!
With the Hunger Games Movie Companions not due out until February, we’ve come up with a fun mix of the Hunger Games items we’d like to unwrap!
The Mockingjay Pin
This may seem too obvious, but do you realize how many Hunger Games fans don’t own a Mockingjay pin?! Not all of us we lucky enough to grace the halls of Comic Con, so there’s plenty demand for this movie replica brooch. That way, we can all have Katniss’ shiny pin on opening night. It’s only fair, really!
The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook
If we’re going to stand behind ANY unofficial Hunger Games book, you better believe it will involve food! Now we can translate Suzanne Collins’ delicious food porn into real life! Who doesn’t want to try their hand at cooking up recipes straight from the series?
Clothespin Doll Christmas Ornaments
These super cute and original hand-painted ornaments let you share the holiday love with Katniss, Peeta, and Gale! Also, because they’re not in holiday outfits, you can keep them around the house all year long. Looking for another character? You can get an ornament customized too!
Steampunk Mockingjay Token
There is nothing better than uber creative handmade jewelry. This steampunk style necklace is inspired by The Hunger Games, but you can still wear it out on a Saturday night and most people would be none the wiser. They’d just know you had really good taste in jewelry!
The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition
We know, we know.. We’ve already posted about the reasons why we personally wouldn’t buy this, but we’re not everyone. It turns out a lot of fans actually love their books gently, keep them organized and safe, and have a fond place in their hearts for Collector’s Editions. If you know someone like that, this will make their day! And if they collect film memorabilia too, how about some Hunger Games Posters?
Quotable Hunger Games Pillows
The Colorado Comfort Etsy shop has got loads of colorful pillows with some of our favorite quotes from the series along with some really cool Hunger Games related designs! Whether you want to remind friends to “Stay Alive” or wish they could frost someone to death, these will definitely put a smile on their faces!
Mellark Bakery T-Shirt
There are tons of awesome Hunger Games tees out there, but this quirky advertisement for Mellark Bakery is our favorite (though the Everdeen/Mellark campaign t-shirt comes in close second)! Red Bubble also lets you customize the color and fit, so you can get your design exactly how you like it!
Hunger Games Book Handbag
Herein lies our deep, personal coveting of items we can never afford. Once you get past the sacrilege that is ripping the cover off a hardcover copy of The Hunger Games, this purse is just about the best thing we’ve ever seen! We’d be toting it around just about everywhere, especially to fandom events.
Katniss Knee Socks
It comes down to this: If you are female and you wouldn’t enjoy secretly wearing knee socks with Katniss’ name and a Mockingjay pin sewn into them under your pants while at work or the grocery store, you have no soul.
Pocket Watch Necklace
Victorian design meets the Catching Fire clock arena in this vintage piece of badass-ery! In case the hand wound brass pocket watch with a glass back isn’t enough, there’s also a pearl, a bird, an arrow, and a key, representing some of our favorite things in the series!
