Marvel Toddler Groot cable guy
What could be cuter than a Toddler Groot designed to hold phones and games controllers? There are several different models for characters like Black Widow, Hulk and Deadpool - all with outstretched arms to hold your odds and ends - but this adorable one is our favourite.
The desk tidy stands at roughly 20cm tall and comes with a 2m micro-USB cable as a handy added extra.
When you’re buying Marvel gifts, it’s always a good idea to look for the stamp of approval from the franchise itself, and this item is official merchandise.
Lego Infinity Gauntlet
There are more than 50 Marvel-themed Lego sets on the market, and this is one of them. It’s the Infinity Gauntlet, in 590 pieces, and comes with a smart name plate you can attach to the base when you’re ready to put it on display.
Once you’ve finished piecing the gauntlet together, it’ll measure just over 31cm high, so it’s the perfect size to place on shelves and table tops.
Marvel logo light
Another fun option is this light in the shape of the Marvel logo. It’s a cool gift idea for people of all generations, and would work particularly well for anyone with a dedicated gaming or movie room.
Usefully, you can choose to power it via a USB cable or three AAA batteries, so it doesn’t need to be near a plug socket to work.
Again, as official Marvel merchandise, this comes directly from the franchise world itself.
Lego Art Marvel Studios Iron Man wall décor set
If you’re after something a little more advanced than the Infinity Gauntlet Lego set, try this 3,167-piece kit. It gives you everything you need to build a colourful portrait of Iron Man to adorn your wall.
The recipient chooses one of three images to build. Or, if you buy three of these Lego sets, you can create one giant piece of art - something for true Marvel fans.
While you work, you can scan the included QR code to access an accompanying playlist and learn some interesting Iron Man facts. The kit also comes with a book providing more information about the iconic superhero’s suit.
Marvel Avengers wallet
Sometimes a practical present can be the perfect choice, so if you’re after a Marvel gift you can use every day, try this sleek wallet. It features the Avengers emblem with an all-black design.
This gift idea is another piece of official Marvel merchandise, so you can rest assured it’s a high-quality item. Plus, it’ll arrive in a Marvel gift box.

As a fun addition, the gauntlet and suit glow in the dark.
