Re:Zero Rem Nendoroid ($46.11)
It seems that every anime fan wants to take Rem from Re:Zero home for a varying range of reasons. Now you can with this cute little Nendoroid figure! Of course, we wanted to keep the gift under $50 so the life-sized figure (link:http://www.theouterhaven.net/2016/11/figurex-rem-life-size-figure/) is out of the question.
Any figure collector and fan of Re:Zero should find this as the perfect gift under the tree this year.... that is until Figma gets off their butts and makes the figure we all deserve... *ahem*
Kamen Rider Ex-Aid DX Driver ($46.76)
The newest and weirdest Kamen Rider has hit Japanese screens and is so out there and goofy that it hurts. Based around 8-Bit video games, the EX-Aid DX Driver is one of the best Japanese noisemakers out there since Kamen Rider Fourze. In order to get the most out of this, you’ll need to buy some extra “game cartridges” (Called “Rider Gashat” in the show), but they are about $11-$15 each at the moment which is very affordable.
Pusheen Box ($43.95 quarterly)
This is great for cat lovers and fans of Pusheen. Each box comes with over $100 worth of Pusheen merchandise, some of which is exclusive to subscribers. Each box has a clothing item(like a shirt, socks), a Pusheen figurine, stickers, and more. The best way to get an idea if the Pusheen Box is worth it is to check out the pictures shared on the website and social media.
Ratchet and Clank PS4 ($19.99)
A welcome return of PlayStation’s greatest duo that goes deeper into their origin. The PlayStation 4 new entry reimagines the original Ratchet & Clank released in 2002 with more modern gameplay mechanics and refined visuals. Explore Solana Galaxy with new weapons and the fan-favorite tools of destruction.
A little greenery can brighten anyone’s bedroom, kitchen, or office. For those who love Pokemon, this ingenious little plastic pot is not only abundantly cute but also practical. It doesn’t break easily or require extensive upkeep, works inside or outside, and will work with any plant you choose.
Bulbasaur Planter ($16.00 +)
The planter comes in two sizes depending on the amount of space you have and a number of colors. So whether you need a little herb garden or want to add to your outdoor décor, this little Bulbasaur is there to fill the need.
PS4 Vertical Stand ($24.99)
If you’re like me, you don’t like laying your consoles down. It takes up too much space. Luckily, a vertical stand fixes all that. Stand up your brand new PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro with this officially licensed (and snazzy at that) stand base.
Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest ($39.99)
Fire Emblem Fates features the best gameplay in the series’s history, hands down. While all three stories are well worth a run through, Conquest stands out as the best of the bunch because of its flawless implementation of Fates’s new gameplay mechanics. Conquest features unique maps and objectives, a colorful cast of characters, a tragic yet touching story, and incredibly challenging gameplay. Any 3DS owner, or really just any RPG lover, needs to play this masterpiece.
