Finding the perfect gift can be tricky and Minecraft gifts are no exception! There’s a lot to choose from. If you don’t know much about the game, it can also be hard to know what will be a really cool gift.
This curated list of Minecraft gift ideas will definitely help you out. We’ve sifted through what’s out there to put together a collection of some of the best Minecraft gifts available.
You’ll find gifts here that work for boys, girls, and all ages. One of the key elements of Minecraft is that everything is square. Tools like swords and pickaxes are often used, and characters like zombies, creepers (they are all green), and skeletons are popular.
25 Cool Minecraft Gift Ideas
This curated gift list will give you some of the best Minecraft gift ideas for kids and other Minecraft fans in your life.
Lego Minecraft: The Crafting Box 3.0
Lego and Minecraft are the perfect match for bringing a virtual game into real life! We particularly like the Crafting Box 3.0 set because it allows for more customization and creative expression than many of the other sets out there. If your Minecraft fan happens to like Lego too, then this might be a winner. This gift works for both boys and girls ages 8 and up.
Minecraft Touchscreen Smart Watch
This colorful Minecraft-themed smartwatch could be the perfect fit for any kid from the 10-year-old tech geek in your life to the 7-year-old who just thinks smartwatches are pretty neat. It comes with surprisingly cool features, including games, a voice recorder, and a selfie cam.
The smartwatch can connect to a smartphone to download photos and videos, letting them record and keep those precious memories. It’s an excellent gift for kids who want to feel a bit like an adult and also love Minecraft.
Minecraft Bee Plush
This adorable bee plushie really captured our hearts. It’s chunky, squishy, colorful, and soft. The plushie isn’t too big or too small either, and it could work well as a toy or travel buddy. What more could you want out of a stuffed game companion?
This is a great gift for younger kids who love Minecraft (as young as 3 years old) and can work for older kids (like 10-year-olds), but only if you know they love stuffed animals. It is very cute! Save the (Minecraft) bees!
Minecraft: The Island: An Official Minecraft Novel
Minecraft is known for not having a set plot, giving players the freedom to build a story using their imagination. That hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with their own, though.
Minecraft books are a great way to get kids reading and off a screen while using something they love. Minecraft has worked with several authors to release a novel series telling the story of the game’s main protagonist, Steve. The series starts with a peculiar but captivating survival adventure novel called Minecraft: The Island.
This novel is great for boys and girls, ages 8-11 (grades 3-7).
Minecraft Builders & Biomes Board Game
Why should the fun end when you turn off the PC or Xbox? This game brings Minecraft to life, with players defeating zombies and building up biomes. It’s also a way for the whole family to have some Minecraft fun together.
This board game makes a great Minecraft Christmas gift everyone can play over the holidays. It would also be great for a birthday party.
Even if you’re not into the digital game, this strategy game is easy to learn and provides a fun social activity. Plus, it gets the kids away from the screen for a while!
This game is recommended for ages 10 years old and up.
Minecraft 4 Piece Backpack Set
Sometimes, you just want to show off what you love, and some fans take that very seriously. While pins, t-shirts, and other items are playfully fun, this backpack set is also very functional.
It includes a bag, pencil case, lunch bag, and water bottle. All of which are adorned with vibrant Minecraft zombie, skeleton, creeper, and Enderman designs. Who doesn’t love a zombie on their lunch bag?
This backpack set is perfect for boys and hard-core girl fans, ages 5-10.
Minecraft Magnetic Travel Game
If a board game wouldn’t quite work, this magnetic travel game might make a better Minecraft gift for kids you’re shopping for. You don’t have to play along for them to enjoy it, plus it’s got a nice educational element too.
This is a STEM toy that uses logic challenges that increase in difficulty. A real plus is that it is travel-size and magnetic. With fun but challenging puzzles, it’s a perfect distraction during long car rides. This game would make a great Christmas present when there is lots of car travel happening.
This travel game is recommended for ages 8 years old and up.
Mattel Minecraft Mini Figures
We really liked the cutesy style of these Mattel Minecraft Earth Boost Mini Figures. These make great little toys to play with (in real life) and encourage imaginary play. You could potentially combine them with some Minecraft lego as well.
Originally, the figures were released as a tie-in to Minecraft Earth, where you could get extra in-game perks. This game has now been discontinued making this a possible collector’s item in the future.
These mini figures are safe for ages 3 years old and up would likely work best with slightly older kids who have started playing with smaller toys. It depends on the child, but age 7 and up should work well.
Minecraft Potion Bottle Night Light
We appreciate a funky version of a regular household item, and this potion bottle night light is both useful and creative. It can light up in 8 different colors, so you don’t have to worry about picking out the right color. This makes it great for boys and girls (especially if they’re particular about what they like).
The night light can add a new Minecraft accent to a bedroom or even a gaming and TV room, but it’s definitely not bright enough to see by.
This Minecraft gift can work for all ages, from little kids to adult gamers.
Minecraft Creeper Bedding (Twin)
This fun Jay Franco 4-piece twin bed set features a massive design of a Minecraft creeper that’s bright and instantly recognizable. The reverse side has some more minimalistic geometric designs in white and gray, making it last longer as the child gets older.
If you have a creeper fan, this gift would work quite well and especially for boys.
Minecraft Creeper & Zombie Pillow Cases
Add some Minecraft style to a bedroom with these great creeper and zombie pillowcases. This gift also comes with a special secret – the pillowcases glow in the dark!
Lots of kids would think these are really cool, and you could even combine them with the Minecraft Bee Plush above to really go all out.
This gift would work well for both boys and girls, from kids to teens. This would also work great for a birthday party as the packaging gets a lot of comments, excitement and is pretty cool.
Minecraft Foam Sword
Who doesn’t want a cool-looking sword to live out their fantasy adventure dreams? This Minecraft sword doesn’t just make for a cool and safe toy, it is also a great prop for both Halloween or cosplay.
This is a great Minecraft gift idea if you want to encourage role play, imagination, and being active. It even makes “clank” and “swoosh” sound effects that sound like the game.
This Minecraft sword gift works especially well for boys age 6 and older (this can include teens).
Minecraft Wall Torch Light
This Minecraft wall torch light looks just like the lights put all over the place in the mines and dark places in Minecraft. In the game, it keeps the creepers and zombies away.
This light can be used as a nightstand light or in a bedroom, game room, or TV room. We think pretty well any kids who love Minecraft would think this is really cool (and may possibly want 10 so that they can put them all over the place as they do in the game). It is battery-operated, so it’s pretty versatile as to where it goes.
This torch light is recommended for ages 6 and up.
Personalized Minecraft T-Shirt
This unisex tee from Etsy has a fun design that depicts the Minecraft adventurers and some of the other characters you can find in-game. The design is super cute but can be personalized, which adds an extra special twist.
This shirt is birthday-themed and includes the child’s age, perfect for a birthday or Minecraft-themed birthday party. In addition, it comes in various sizes spanning from toddler all the way to adult, so you could get one for the whole family!
Die-Cast Minecraft Metal Figurines Set
They’re adorable, colorful, and they’re also made of metal. If your Minecraft fan is a collector of figurines, then these might make a sweet addition to their collection. These premium figurines look and feel great, with a more realistic design that older kids and teens will love.
This group of characters features the most in the game. They are a great starting point for a Minecraft figurine collection.
We’d recommend these metal figurines for ages 10 and older, with the exception of younger kids who are known to like collecting and displaying things.
Minecraft PC Case Skin
What’s more geek-chic than putting a full gaming skin on your PC case? Most avid Minecraft players would likely love the idea of having their computer look like it jumped right out of their favorite game. This bright and colorful custom design decal is handmade and glossy. Just make sure it fits the size of the PC before placing the order.
This case skin is recommended for older kids and teens who appreciate decor (rather than toys).
Minecraft Wall Sign
Resembling the signs you craft in-game, this sign can be personalized with any word or message you like, such as the name of the person you’re giving it to.
It’s definitely one of the most unique Minecraft gifts we’ve come across, and if you want to add a personal touch, this is a great gift idea. You could write anything from “Kid’s Room” to “Keep Out” or “Creepers Ahead.”
This Minecraft sign works well for pretty well every age, for boys and girls.
Minecraft Diamond Ore Block Lamp
Minecraft is a game about building extravagant bases made from different materials, so this lamp would fit right in. Who wouldn’t be excited by having their own block of diamond ore right in their room?
A cool custom lamp is one of those items that can add a bit of Minecraft flair to a room without making it look kitsch. This Minecraft lamp comes in two versions, a more toned-down diamond ore block lamp and a more colorful TNT block option (which could be great for the younger kids).
This gift would work well for all ages but slightly riskier for younger kids who may just want toys.
Minecraft Kids Bathrobe
It’s fluffy, soft, and snuggly. Quite the opposite of the creeper it’s modeled after! This 100% polyester bathrobe is marketed for boys but could probably work just as well for any Minecraft-loving gamer girl too. It’s machine washable and comes in sizes ranging from 12M for toddlers to size 12.
This would make a great Christmas present as it’s perfect for cold weather but great for birthdays as well.
Minecraft Obsidian Cube Kit
You don’t need to be a Minecraft player to get involved in some way, thanks to DIY Minecraft gifts like this one. If you have time to kill and a willing kid to partner up with, this epoxy kit lets you create a cool decorative cube. It’s perfect for someone who likes Minecraft and enjoys making something with their hands.
In the daytime, this cube is a dark purple/obsidian, and at night it glows purple! Pretty cool!
This DIY cube kit gift is recommended for school-aged kids and up.
Minecraft Enchanted Bow
Just like the pixelated Minecraft sword and axes, this enchanted bow with a “potion tip” can make a great addition to a Halloween costume, cosplay, or your chest of dress-up clothes.
It functions well on its own as a toy – and a working one at that. The arrow can be loaded and fired repeatedly. Just make sure no one nearby gets hit by a love potion!
While the colors of this bow are true to the game, girls may prefer this bow over boys with the pink and purple coloring. It’s a great gift to encourage active play using imagination.
This bow is recommended for ages 6-10.
Minecraft Periodic Table of Elements TShirt
For the kid who appreciates what gets mined in Minecraft comes the periodic table of Minecraft elements. This shirt is a bit more unique than the standard Minecraft shirts that are easy to find. It’s also got a science bent to it for kids who appreciate the clever side of things.
This shirt is available in youth sizes 8-20 and will work for either boys or girls.
Minecraft Crafting Table
The crafting table is a staple in any Minecraft game – you can’t get anything done without it. If you’re looking for a more significant Minecraft gift, this is a great one to consider.
It would be cool for a kid to have their own crafting table. What you can do with this one is open up the drawers and create elements from the game – tools, food, characters, and more. It’s a bit more like taking the element out of the game and into the real world and creating things with it in real life.
This crafting table is recommended for older kids who won’t eat or lose little pieces.
100 PICS Minecraft Travel Card Game
If you’re looking for a true educational gift with a Minecraft theme, this 100 PICS card game for kids is a solid option. It comes in a versatile travel-size holder that makes handling the cards hassle-free, which is excellent as you don’t want to have cards flying around in the car.
In the game, they have to identify the object on the card then spell it using the scrambled letters it displays.
This Minecraft travel game is best for kids who have started learning to spell bigger words to adults.
Minecraft Comic Maker Set
This adorable Minecraft biome set comes with different settings and characters from the game so a young creator can make up their own story. It’s a way to make a comic book (AKA practice writing) but in a fun and creative way with characters they know and love.
If the kids have access to a smartphone, they can use the accompanying app to capture their creations and add different backdrops, effects, and sounds. There are a lot of creative possibilities making this a great gift for an inventive child.
The comic maker set is recommended for boys and girls ages 6 and older.

What Ages Is Minecraft Suitable For?
According to the Entertainment Software Rating Board (1), Minecraft is suitable for users aged 10+. This rating is mainly due to the opportunity for violence in the game, both against enemies and animals. Many children play this game at a younger age in “creative mode” and use it primarily to create different homes, farms, and mines, but they still may use a sword on a zombie.
