We all fell in love with these cuddly creatures during the original Despicable Me movie. Their following has increased over the years with the release of sequels, leading to their own film. Although they emerged as single-celled organisms at the beginning of time, they have evolved to think up ingenious plans. While they live to serve others, they often find themselves working for evil villains. It is time for you to rescue them from the evil clutches of these devilish masterminds. Give them a new master by bringing them into your home or the home of someone you love with these Minion gifts.
There is something here for all ages. Just make sure to get some Minion wrapping paper to make the gift extra special.
1. Animated Minion Toy
Cool minion gifts for kids
They can do some kung fu moves with Bob, babble along with Otto, or sing with a cast of minions with these action toys.
We all know how much minions love singing. Give your kids a karaoke microphone so they can sing too.
For music lovers of all ages, get one of the Minions soundtracks on MP3.
If you don’t want to host a family karaoke night, have a Minions movie night instead.
2. Minion Shoes
Unique Minion gifts
These shoes are cool enough on their own, but most can be customized with a name. These aren’t just for little ones either. Many come in adult sizes as well.
If you want more personalized Minion gifts, have Minion t-shirts made for the whole family. T-shirts with their names will be one of a kind gifts.
For another unusual gift, get a Minion umbrella to keep them dry in the rain.
3. Minion Legos
Best Minion gifts for kids
We all grew up with Legos. Now there are tons of sets available with the Minions theme. Many of these have limited pieces, so they are even good for a younger crowd. Building blocks are a good way to improve spatial reasoning while having fun. Plus these themed sets encourage imaginative play.
For Hot Wheels fans, you can give them a Minions vehicle to tuck in their Christmas stocking.
Collectors will love these cute Funko Pop characters. However, you may need to add another shelf to display them on.
4. Jumbo Plush
More Minion gifts for kids
Soft toy minions are great for the tiniest fans. My favorites are the large ones that kids can use as a pillow, but they come in smaller sizes as well.
Do you have a child who gets stressed out easily or often gets a case of the fidgets? Give them a banana squishy toy to relieve some of the tension.
Kids love dressing up, and not just for Halloween. Over a month ago, we cleaned out our playroom closet and gave our 6 year old neighbor all of the costumes. We still see her after school, dancing around her front lawn dressed as Anna from Frozen or as a goth ballerina. Choose from this wide selection of costumes for Minions fans. There are outfits for both boys and girls.
Then get them a Minion backpack to use for school or to pack their Minion stuff for a trip to Grandma’s.
5. Minion Onesie
Minions gifts for toddlers
Dress the tiniest tots as minions with some cute onesies. These are great baby shower gifts for Minions fans.
You can also get a toddler sippy cup and some bibs with the Minions theme. After all, we all know how messy those minions can get.
Want to see gifts for fans of other entertainment too?
6. Exciting Games
Gift ideas for Minion fans
Create a fun family game night with tons of classic games that have been updated with a Minion theme. Games like Kerplunk and Operation now sport these yellow characters.
Or get them an old fashioned jigsaw puzzle. There are puzzles with a few pieces for the little ones or even 500 piece puzzles for those who want more of a challenge.
Activity books are always a useful gift. These can easily be taken with you while waiting at the doctor’s office, traveling, or to pass time during a sibling’s extracurricular activities. Choose from coloring books, sticker books, or magic ink.
7. Minion Bedding Set
Minion presents for the bedroom
Kids will love having a bedroom decorated with these fun creatures. Start with a bedding set. Most of these include sheets, comforter, and pillow cases.
Then get them a Minion blanket to snuggle under while reading or watching the Minions movie. Next, add some wall decals so it looks like Minions are taking over the room.
And last but not least, give them a throw rug so they don’t have to sit on the bare floor while playing with their Minion toys.
8. Minions Airpods Case
Minion gift ideas for teens
Sometimes I think my teen is ignoring me, but it’s just that he has earbuds in, listening to music or streaming a video. Minions fans will like these cute Airpods cases. Many of them come with a ring attachment.
Getting your child a new phone for Christmas? Give them a Minion phone case to go with it. If you can’t find a compatible case for their phone, give them a popsocket instead. Then they can stand their phone up to watch the Minions movie.
9. Mini Purse
Minions gifts for her
These are good for kids or adults. As kids we always had our own wallets or coin purses. We would keep our birthday money in them. Then our mom would take us to the store so we could buy something we wanted. It is a great way for children to learn about money. Of course, for older girls, you can give them a cell phone purse instead.
If she has pierced ears, she may like a pair of Minion earrings.
For younger girls, give her some Minion hair bows to decorate her hair.
10. Minion Lunch Box
Minion gifts for picky eaters
The first step to getting picky eaters to eat is to get them to take their lunch to school in the first place. Then you have more control over the choices than if they are faced with school lunch. Get them excited for lunch with a Minions lunch box.
Bento boxes have become popularized in part due to Despicable Me. Take advantage of these cool sections by supplying a rainbow of food for your child. For some reason, kids often don’t like different foods touching each other, so these sections are great for picky eaters.
Not sure what to pack? Get a bento cookbook for kids and let your child pick out some recipes. Many of these have fun themes, which will be sure you get your kids to eat healthy foods. Studies show that when kids take part in making decisions about food choices they are more likely to eat. You can even find some Minion themed ideas on YouTube or Pinterest.
11. Minion Coffee Mugs
Minion gifts for adults
Get a whole set of minions for them to drink from, or give them just one.
Looking for more Minion merchandise for adults? Try a hand painted wine glass for an evening beverage.
For work, get them a Minions mouse pad.
Or for Halloween, maybe they want to dress as a Minion. Yes, Minion costumes even come in adult sizes.
