Here in the U.S. we don’t have any royalty to look upto while growing up. Instead we turn to superheroes. Every kid aspires to be a superhero and save the world. I remember running around in homemade costumes with my friends as a kid, pretending we could fly, turn invisible, and beat up the bad guys with our super strength.
While Superman has been around for 80 years, he is still an iconic figure today. Although, in reality, we will never be able to fly or turn invisible. And we most likely will get arrested if we go around beating up people. I hope these Superman gifts will inspire the next generation as well as fans of all ages to be real life heroes instead.
Superman gifts for a boyfriend
These are great housewarming gifts for a boyfriend or for any occasion. He will want to show these off to his friends so grab a six pack for him to share with them.
If he prefers something a bit stronger, get him some superhero shot glasses instead. Obviously, these are Superman gifts for adults.
For mixed drinks, he can make themed ice cubes with superhero ice cube trays. He might like these whether he entertains or not. We all know the ice makers in the refrigerator don’t have long life spans.
Cool Superman gifts
What do you buy a Superman fan? Comics, of course. Since Superman has been around for generations, there are plenty of volumes to choose from. If he already has a lot of comics, you can get him a Superman encyclopedia.
If you have young readers, give them some books for kids. You can start by reading the stories to them to pique their interest. Once they become proficient readers, they can take over and read them to you.
Do you know a budding artist? Give them a book with instructions on How to Draw Superheroes.
Make sure to get some superhero bookends. Avid readers will need them for holding up more than just their Superman books.
Superman gifts for kids
Playing with Legos is fun, but it will also improve critical thinking skills. These are necessary to excel in math and science. Your gift today might inspire them to be a hero in the future by building hospitals and engineering faster planes to connect people all over the world.
Another idea for improving spatial reasoning is with a Superman puzzle. For adults, you can get one with more pieces.
You can also get them a 12” Action Figure of Superman to act out scenarios for rescuing the other toys. Other superheroes are available as well, so they can fight crime in the playroom together.
DC Imaginext Super Friends can battle the bad guys on a smaller scale.
You can also buy kids cool Superman costumes for dress up. Just make sure they don’t try to beat up their friends.

Is your Superman fan a gamer? Give them some video game skins to decorate their system and controllers.
Just because they wear an actual watch instead of checking the time on their phone doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Get them a stylish Superman watch.
