While the show’s run was short lived, Firefly fans are still a dedicated bunch, happy to show their love for the series in any way they can. If you’ve got a loved one who can’t get enough of the Serenity crew’s adventures, check out this list of the best gifts for Firefly fans! From books and games to clothing, collectibles and art, there’s no end to the gift possibilities, and you’re guaranteed to make their day just a little bit “shinier”!
Essential gift for Firefly fans
WIth streaming becoming so popular, many fans might not actually own their very own copy of Firefly. Get them the 2017 15th Anniversary Collector’s edition and they’ll have hours of entertainment, from rewatching the series again, to exploring the behind-the-scenes bonus content.
Every true Firefly fan will also appreciate their own Blu-ray copy of Serenity, the series’ spinoff movie. Or, give them an even more in-depth experience with Done The Impossible: The Fans’ Tale of Firefly & Serenity
Thoughtful home decor Firefly gift
There’s nothing like a beautiful piece of wall art to brighten up a space. Show that you care by giving your favorite Firefly fan their very own piece of art, so they can show off their love for the Serenity in style! It makes a great gift for a housewarming party, or if your loved one is moving into a dorm.
Firefly merchandise gift for collectors
Everyone loves to collect items that remind them of their favorite people, places, memories and media. Your favorite Firefly fan is likely no different! Giving them a collectible figurine of their favorite Firefly character, like Jayne Cobb or Kaylee Frye, is sure to spark a love for collecting! Or, at the very least, they’re sure to clear off a special place on their shelf to display it!
Funko Pop! Figurines are an excellent choice for new or young collectors just beginning in the hobby, but for more hardcore collectors, try a more high-end collectible like Mal Reynolds’ (nonfiring) pistol prop replica or model building block set!

It’s got everything you’d ever want to know about the series and then some. From character profiles and episode scripts to illustrations and behind the scenes stories, there’s nothing this book doesn’t have!

Board games make excellent holiday gifts because they gather people together to bond over a little friendly competition! With original games inspired by the show to Firefly editions of popular games like Monopoly, you’re sure to find the perfect Firefly gift for the fan in your life.
Board games aren’t the only gifts that guarantee family fun. Try Tall Card, a card game based directly on the one played in the fourth episode of the show, or Firefly: Shiny Dice, a fast-paced dice game that can be played solo or in a group!
