The Marvel Encyclopedia
The official Marvel Encyclopedia is something hardcore fans will enjoy, but it’s also a great gift for those who are just getting into the Marvel universe. Comic books have years and years of backstory and continuity to deal with and even the most seasoned fan can get confused. Listing tons of characters and events in an easy-to-navigate alphabetic format, this encyclopedia can help fans keep it all straight. It’s up to date with the latest events too.

It's the classic board game with a superheroic twist. It’s actually a game that feels a little better than the classic version, since you’re doing good rather than being a Wall Street shark. Instead of buying up locations, you’re “saving” them. Instead of collecting cash, you collect power-ups for your heroes and you deal with SHIELD cards and villain cards rather than chance and chest cards. When all the locations are saved, the person with the most heroic power wins. So if you feel like spreading justice instead of capitalism, this is the perfect Monopoly for you.

Captain America's Shield Cutting Board
This is the perfect gift for a friend that loves cooking in addition to Marvel superheroes. Just like Cap’s real shield, this cutting board is nearly indestructible, being resistant to heat up to 360 degree and to stains as well. With a clean glass surface and non-slip rubber base, it’s perfect for cutting food on and can also be used to protect your counter from heat and water damage.
Marvel's Captain America 'Be the Hero' Apron
Another fun item for a Marvel fan who likes to cook is a themed apron. With this apron, anyone can cook like Cap, displaying his muscled, heroic body as if it were their own. It’s a one-size-fitsmost article of clothing too, so you don’t have to worry much about whether it will fit.

25 Marvel Comic Starter Bundle Plus Bonus Searchlights Comic Sticker
This is a great gift for someone who likes Marvel movies and wants to get into comics but doesn’t know where to start. It’s a good introduction pack. The comics range from the 1980s to today so there’s a good variety of stories. However, it should be noted that the packet is put together pretty randomly, so it’s possible to get duplicates, according to reviews. Nevetheless you can get it here.

A Marvel Unlimited Digital Subscription
Starter packs are all well and good, but what do you get for a fan who’s already a comic junkie? There’s no way to find out what comics they’ve read and if you ask, you’re tipping your hand as to what you’re getting them as a gift. That’s where a Marvel Unlimited Digital Subscription comes in handy. This allows your comic loving friend or loved one to access any comic they want. They can pick and choose for themselves what they want to read. It’s a great deal, as it gives you access to over 17000 different comics. It’s not really a physical gift too, so it’s convenient to just e-mail it to your loved one rather than having to wrap and send a present if they live far away.
