Are you sick of hearing about Fallout 4 from your friend/relative/significant other? What about The Elder Scrolls Online? Do they still sink hundreds of hours every month into questing through Tamriel? You may be dealing with a Bethesda Softworks enthusiast. 

The Bethesda Store can be pretty overwhelming, but offers the greatest possible gifts someone like you could be looking for. You just need to know where to find all of the best goodies. Also, keep in mind that although Bethesda itself sells some pretty cool things, it isn't the only source of great gifts.

Everything you need to know about buying Bethesda gear for your loved ones is here. This gift guide has got you covered.


Funko Pop! Vinyl Figurines

Rating: 5/5 (2 Customer Reviews)

Price: $11.99

Buy it: Amazon

Funko is seriously taking the world by storm with their ever growing line-up of Pop! Vinyl collectibles. You can get a Pop! of practically anything pop-culture. From The Hunger Games to Sharknado, one of these vinyl figures can be found for anyone on your list, but you're looking for that Bethesda inclined person in particular. 

With the upcoming release of Fallout 4, Pop! Games has added a new line of Fallout 4 show pieces to the ever flourishing Bethesda collection.

You can now buy Vault Boy, Brotherhood of Steel, and Super Mutant Pop!s for Fallout fans; or Nord, Dovahkiin, and Daedrick Warrior Funkos for Elder Scrolls fans. Keep in mind that these few examples barely scratch the surface that is Funko Pop! collectibles.


The Elder Scrolls Custom Jewelry

Rating: No Ratings Yet

Price: $75.00

Buy It: The Bethesda Store

These stunning amulets were handcrafted so no two are the same. The hardest part about this gift is finding out which of the gods is your loved one's favorite. Is it Akatosh, Arkay, Kynareth, Talos, or Mara? If so, you're in luck. Pop over to the Bethesda Store and grab yours! 

RockLove has outdone themselves in the creation of this beautiful jewelry. The Amulet of Talos (as seen above) for example, is hand antiqued and distressed solid brass with a genuine leather cord. Just think, the Amulet of Talos seems to be the simplest necklace. Others feature extreme detail and shiny gemstones. 


Fallout 4: Pip-Boy Edition

Rating: No Reviews Yet (Game hasn't been released)

Price: From $327.00

Buy It: Amazon 

Being a huge Fallout fan myself, if I got this collectors edition of the game as a gift from, say, my significant other, I'd be proposing. Oh yes, it's marriage-proposal-material due its extreme collectible nature. This item is sold-out on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca only offers it through third party sellers. At this point it is nearly impossible to get hands on one of these beauties. Of course, the standard Fallout 4 video game makes a great gift as well!

The Pip-Boy Edition contains a stylized Vault-Tec Perk poster, Power Armor collectible packaging, and the big cheese: an exclusive, wearable and operable Pip-Boy armband replica. The Pip-Boy accommodates most smart phones with custom foam inserts so dedicated fans can put on the armband, connect to the Pip-Boy companion app, and adjust their in-game inventory, perks, and more, right from their hand. 


Fallout Collectors Edition Monopoly Board Game

Rating: No Ratings Yet

Price: $40.00

Buy It: The Bethesda Store

Nothing gets famous without a Monopoly game being made for it. Bethesda's Fallout series is no exception. 

Fallout Monopoly features iconic locations from all four series titles, shacks and vaults rather than houses and hotels, and six collectible player tokens: Vault Boy, 10mm Pistol, Power Armor Helmet, Nuka-Cola Bottle, Vault 111, and a MiniNuke.

At a surprisingly low price for a collectible Monopoly game, this might just be the gift you need to get your gamer to play with someone other than Dogmeat. 


The Elder Scrolls Online Ouroboros Faction Hoodie

Rating: No Rating Yet

Price: $19.99

Buy It: The Bethesda Store

In the hundreds of pages of wearable merchandise on the Bethesda Store, it's hard to find something that hits home with a lot of gamers. Sure, you can have the logo of a game on your shirt but does that really mean anything? With these hoodies, you can change all of that by allowing your loved one to express their faction pride. All you need to do is figure out which faction they fight for.

In The Elder Scrolls: Online players choose between three factions: The Aldmeri Dominion, The Ebonheart Pact, and The Daggerfall Covenant (as seen above). A hoodie for each faction is available on The Bethesda Store, sporting significant symbols and styles.


Fallout Anthology (PC Only)

Rating: 5/5 (13 Customer Reviews)

Price: $69.99

Buy It: Amazon

A great game idea for nostalgic fans is the Fallout Anthology. For a single price of $69.99 your loved one can replay all of their long lost memories right back to the original Fallout title. This collection includes:

  • Fallout
  • Fallout 2
  • Fallout Tactics
  • Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition
  • Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition

Unfortunately, the Fallout Anthology is only available for PC because the original games were only PC compatible. If you're buying for a PC player, this could be a great gift. Five games all housed within a collectible MiniNuke casing, it doesn't get better.

Just make sure you wrap this guy in a box. It may look strangely like a football if you don't.


Fallout Beer (UK Only)

Rating: No Ratings Yet

Price: £29.99

Buy It: Amazon UK

Yes, you read the title of this slide correctly. Bethesda has teamed up with Carlsberg UK to make a unique hype item for their upcoming Fallout 4. You read the parenthesis bit correctly as well. It's only available in the United Kingdom. The beer can be found on Amazon UK, but it cannot be shipped overseas, unfortunately for us North Americans. 

Nevertheless, what are the holidays without a little liquid courage? A twelve pack of Fallout Beer can be purchased for £29.99 and enjoyed both in-game and in real life. 

P.S. If you find a way to purchase Fallout Beer in the Americas, let me know in the comment section!


The Infernal City: An Elder Scrolls Novel

Rating: 4/5 (10 Customer Reviews)

Price: $12.99

Buy It: Chapters/Indigo

Greg Keyes wrote a novel set in the wondrous land of Tamriel that all Bethesda gamers know and love. Perfect for people that want to really enthrall themselves with the gaming world, the events of this book occur roughly 40 years after the end of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Further reading is always a thrilling experience to a curious fan, especially in the world of The Elder Scrolls due to the immensity of its lore.

This would be a great gift for any hardcore Elder Scrolls fans, as well as fans of fantasy novels in general.
