If you’ve got zombie fans in your life, they’ve probably disappeared this weekend, because the new Last of Us videogame was released yesterday! My husband and I played the original game when it came out a few years ago and loved it. We’re excited to continue the story with this new game. For zombie fans who are also gamers, The Last of Us Part II would make a great gift, but this release is also a great time to look at zombie gifts for the zombie fans in our lives. Check out our gift guide…
How awesome is this cookie jar?! I love the zombie design, which goes all the way around the head. The ceramic jar measure 11.5 inches by 10 inches by 10 inches. It’s perfect for cookies, candies, or whatever you’d like to put in it. It’ll be a delight for any zombie fan.
Love this fun twist on the eat local movement. If you’re a zombie, you’re going to eat locals! This fun dish towel is 28 inches square, made of cotton and screen printed with non-toxic ink. It makes a great zombie gift.
When the zombie apocalypse comes, food will be a big question mark. Co-authors Lauren Wilson and Kristian Bauthus created this cookbook as the answer! It offers more than 80 recipes, food survival tips, and helpful tips on scavenging and foraging. Some of the recipes are Twinkie Trifle, because there will always be Twinkies, and Overnight of the Living Dead French Toast. Fun!
I love fun Zombie survival guides (one of the reasons I love the Zombieland movies) and this one by Max Brooks has great reviews. That shouldn’t be surprising since the author is a staff writer on Saturday Night Light. He’s also the author of the zombie book World War Z. The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead is fully illustrated and gives readers everything they need to know to understand zombie behavior, do the best defense tactics and outfit homes for a long-term siege.
Drink in your zombie fun with this School of Zombies mug. The inside is lined with “I Need Brains…” and the other side has the same design with “The Walking Read” on the blackboard. The ceramic mug is 16 ounces and dishwasher and microwave safe. Fun, funky and zombified!
This hilarious picture book parody is perfect for any zombie lover who grew up with The Very Hungry Caterpiller. Written by Michael Teitelbaum and illustrated by Jon Apple, the book follows the very hungry zombie as it eats its way through its favorite foods, like clowns, astronauts, rock stars and more.
Fight zombies with fun with Zombie-Opoly! In this board game, players can buy zombies and boxes of flesh, then trade them in for a screaming human. But be careful because you could get buried and have to claw your way to the surface for three turns. Fun! Personally, I love the tokens: a shovel, a bone, a shoe, an ear, a hammer and, of course, a zombie.
The zombie apocalypse will begin as a pandemic, and we’ll all need masks to slow that spread! Thank God we don’t have a zombie virus vaging through our population right now; COVID-19 is bad enough. Masks are helping to save lives, and with this mask from RedBubble, your zombie-loving friends can wear their fandom. The masks make great zombie gifts.
If you haven’t seen Shaun of the Dead yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s one of the funniest zombie movies, and your zombie-loving friends will no doubt be fans. (If not, you should educate them!) This T-shirt celebrates Shaun’s plan when the zombie apocalypse begins. Of course, problems ensue and there’s no way he can just wait for it all to blow over. Another great gift for zombie-movie fans, this shirt is available in 17 colors and a bunch of different styles.
The zombie fans in your life will see Subway in a new way after they unwrap this T-shirt. Available from RedBubble, it comes in 17 colors and a variety of styles, although I like the one pictured best as it most closely resembles a true Subway shirt.
Fans of the Last of Us videogame will love this print of Joel and Ellie in full bad ass action based on the cover of the original game. It’s available in 12 inches by 16 inches or 16 inches by 20 inches. Plus, you can buy the design on a spiral notebook, art board or more.
No one likes people coming to their door to sell stuff. So get your zombie-loving friend the perfect way to scare them off. This aluminum sign is 7.5 inches by 10.5 inches. It’s printed with UV inks so it’ll look good long-term, and it comes with pre-drilled holes for easy display. The zombie fans in your life will love it.
