Christmas Gifts Ideas – What To Buy Your Partner For Christmas

Christmas Gifts Ideas

Why an article about Christmas gifts ideas, you may ask? Well, hello! Christmas is only 12 days away, now. It is coming very quickly and I do not want to miss it!

 

Of course, I am secretly hoping that my friends and family are reading this and will know what to do.

So, are you still wondering what to get your girlfriend for Christmas? Or are you still wondering what to get your boyfriend for Christmas? Yes, me too.

Here are some Christmas gifts ideas that might save you from some migraines, should you be the last minute type, although I must say, Christmas happens at the same date every year. Moving on.

GLOW ACTION FIGURES

Have you ever been a fan of wrestling? I have not. Wait! That is not true! I started to have a lot of respect for wrestlers when I watched that fabulous movie with Mickey Rourke, called ‘The Wrestler‘, directed by Darren Aronofski.

The movie tells the heartbreaking story life of Robin Ramzinski, a not so young professional wrestler with a heart condition. You should definitely see this movie.

So, with all of that in my mind, I saw on Netflix an ad for ‘Glow’, a TV series based on the true story of two guys who started producing in the seventies a show of female wrestlers. I was not attracted by this at all, but finally decided to watch.

Well, Folks, I am so glad I did! This Netflix show is wonderful! Everything is great about it: the script, the dialogues, the actresses, the actors, the music! It made me discover this wonderful song by Siouxsie and The Banshees: Cities in Dust.

So, imagine my surprise when I discovered that I could actually get, in my own house, a pair of Glow action figures!

RICK AND MORTY ACTION FIGURES

Ever heard of Rick and Morty? No? Well, say no more, I am here to help! Rick and Morty is an American adult animated sci-fi TV series created in 2013.

It depicts the adventures of the Smith family, composed of the parents, Beth and Jerry, their children, Summer and Morty, and Beth’s father, Rick Sanchez.

Both Rick and Morty go on crazy adventures in a multitude of universes, where the viewer can compare the cynical view on life of Rick and the more naive one of Morty. Enjoy!

ROCKY BALBOA

Ok, Folks, so I am going down memory lane and I must share with you my adoration for Rocky Balboa, the champion with a big heart. Remember when, after his first victory, he shouts ‘Adriaaaan! Adriaaaan!’ ? My heart melted.

Rocky Balboa

I have always loved this character and I have always had a soft spot for Sylvester Stallone. Moreover, I think the genesis of Rocky is a fascinating story. Sly Stallone surely lived the American Dream!

RAMBO

As I said right above, I have a soft spot for Sylvester Stallone, so, I am just going to accept it and to give in to the fascination.

Rambo

Don’t you think this Rambo action figure is cool? I think it is so brilliantly done! I am going to warn Santa that, after he has eaten all my cookies drunk all my milk, he had better fulfilled my action figures needs!

KILL BILL ACTION FIGURES

Are you a fan of Uma Thurman? Or perhaps of Quentin Tarantino? Well, these Kill Bill action figures might just be the things you need if you are still torturing yourself about what to get your girlfriend for Christmas, or what to get your boyfriend for Christmas.

NARUTO

So Folks, by now you know my views on manga, as well as my inclination towards Naruto. And, in order to reflect an idiosyncratic view of life, why not getting him or her an upside down Naruto?

DAISY DUKE

And what about a Daisy Duke figurine, in order to remember good old days, where we thought we were worries free in the eighties? The nice and sexy hillbilly cousins fighting against the mean billionaire-uncle-Scrooge-type, with the help of their beautiful cousin, a femme fatale in shorts, Daisy Duke?

PREACHER

Reverend Jesse Custer is a piece of work, I am telling you! He is the coolest reverend on Earth, the only one questioning God and his work. You would be making a point by offering a Preacher action figure.

 

BRUCE WAYNE AND BATMAN

You always need to have a good old bat around, it might come in handy in a complex situation, since you might have to face the Joker at the corner of every street. These Batman action figures are here to help!

HORROR ACTION FIGURES

Folks, this is not my favorite part, but, having said that, I think this is simply hilarious! I can’t say that I have seen horror movies. I do not consider the Scream series to be horror movies. I consider them as something in-between thrillers and comedies.

I have never seen The Exorcist, and I recently watched the first Halloween movie of the series featuring Jamie Lee Curtis and, I must say, I laughed a lot.

I never saw one of the first performances of Johnny Depp in A Nightmare on Elm Street, the first appearance of Freddy Krueger. Neither have I watched any movie of the Friday the 13th franchise. Perhaps you get it by now, but I am a bit of a scaredy-cat.

Chucky can be considered one of the first horror movies I watched and, between you and I, that is such a bad movie. But the doll is quite scary, as the clown of It. Since the Scream movies, it became trendy to disguise in a Scream outfit. Why not?

Among all this ugly stuff, I have discovered some horror action figures that are worth the detour. I know that the suspens must be unbearable for you, so I won’t delay the pleasure any longer. Please see below the famous LEATHERFACE, from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!

Quite a hunk, eh?

LAST NIGHT I, GAVE YOU MY HEART

Which one of these action figures are you going to offer to your girlfriend or to your boyfriend this Christmas? Let me know in the Comments section below. In the meantime, enjoy your shopping!

  1. Hello Anso! I watched the Glow TV series last summer and I loved it! I only knew about female wrestling because of Andy Kaufman. This TV series is fantastic and my daughter also loved it. I think it became quite a cult for her, so I will definitely get her a pair of Glow action figures!

  2. You have made my day! I am absolutely obsessed (in a healthy way of course) with the TV series GLOW, so I am over the moon that the action figures are available. This is definitely going on my list to Santa.

    Since the days of being a teenager, a friend of mine – Vanessa – and I used to love horror movies. It was absolutely terrifying and exhilarating to watch at the same time. Hands down, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre must be one of the most terrifying I have ever seen. I would love to have the action figure, but quite frankly, I do not know if I would be able to sleep at night knowing it was in the apartment!

    Mind you, if I got that fabulous Batman collection, I would surely be safe!

    Great ideas for Christmas. I absolutely love these figures. You and Santa have certainly chosen fabulous presents as stocking fillers.

    See you soon

    1. Hi Renée, wait until you see the It action figures. They are so scary! Like you, I don’t think I would be able to have that in my home sweet home. That’s going to be my 2020 challenge! Thank you for your comment, and good luck with Santa!

  3. I didn’t know that they made so many action figures from scary one (although the chainsaw guy looks very cool) to Daisy Duke.  I had a question and not sure if you can help me out or not but is collecting these action figures a huge thing for people or do you see more people purchasing these for friends and taking them out of the boxes and using them.  I take it to the Big Bang Theory show where are those guys have comic books and action figures galleries.  I never got into them but I did receive a few as a kid and still have them to this day.  Great info and perfect for Christmas gifts. I am looking into the Batman figures as my nephew loves all of the Batman cartoons and movies even.  Thank you for all of the great reviews.

    1. Hi Douglas! You can find several types of action figures collectors. The ones that will keep their action figures in their boxes in the attic, waiting for who knows what? Others like me who will unwrap them and put them in their shelves, while keeping the boxes in case these action figures become some kind of a currency during an apocalypse, and others, also like me, who put them in shelves but also play with. 

  4. Congratulations, you have a fantastic article. Your layout is easy to navigate with, you provide great images and your text is nice to read. I like your concept. After reading your article, I would like to make a gift to my girlfriend, as she is a fan of Rocky Balboa.I think she will be happy with a Rocky action figure. I have bookmarked your website and I will be returning before and after Christmas.

    1. Hi Yoge, thank you very much for your comment. I like the fact that your girlfriend is also a fan of Rocky. This action figure is so cool, let me know if she’s happy with it!

  5. Hello Anne-Sophie,Thanks for sharing your  Christmas gift ideas.  I am just looking for some for my children. I really love the Glow action figures and I will definitely get them for my children. Your post has been very helpful and I am sure my boys will be happy! Daisy Duke is also a bit of a phenomenon, so I’ll get her, but for me!

  6. Hooray! Christmas is here again. A time to share with one another, a time of giving and a time of celebration. Thank you for sharing these Christmas gifts ideas. Sincerely speaking, all of these figures are really cool and I must admit that I smiled while I was reading through: you have a good sense of humour. Okay, I know they’re all great but Rambo is my favourite amongst them all. I love this guy. I wish my girlfriend will get this for me. Unfortunately, I don’t have a girlfriend. Kindest regards.

    1. Hi MrBiizy! Your sense of humour is greater and I can definitely learn from you. Rambo is cool, I agree. He is so realistic. I mean, when I was younger, action figures did not actually look like the actors who were impersonating them. 

  7. Hello Anne-Sophie!

    Wow, Rambo and Rocky have quite strong looks, gifted with muscles as they were in the real movies! These gifts will be nice and exciting to people who loved the two legends and the series they appeared in.

    Naruto looks just funny to me, as it is hung with the head upside down. Another nifty gift would be “The Batman Crew” aka Bruce Wayne and Batman, I like how it looks!

    Leatherface looks… scary :).

    Wish you a Merry Christmas with beautiful Christmas gift ideas and kind regards,

    Peter

    1. Hello Peter, I am glad I’m not the only one who thinks that Leatherface is scary! I feel less alone, I confess. And yes, action figures are more and more realistic. Check this one out! Merry Christmas to you!

  8. Action figures always are a big seller, and the kids love them at Christmas time!  Batman, Robin and Superman!

    I like the Rocky one, good old Sylvester Stallone.  

    Do you know if they have any action figures for the Hulk?

    One of my favorite movies was Rocky, and Rocky 2.

  9. I have a couple of friends who are die hard Naruto fans and getting them a piece will make their Christmas I’m very sure. Personally, I don’t know what they really see about the whole story and I always feel left out in their discussions. Maybe someday, I too am going to watch it. Your Christmas gifts ideas are pretty cool. 

  10. Hello there thanks for this awesome article. I hope it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me.Anyway, I just broke up with my girlfriend so I am sinlge, but I have been looking for gifts my brothers and I haven’t really seen anything good until now.Thanks once again I would definitely get these for them.

  11. Awesome post. This is exactly what I was looking for, I’m glad that I came across your post at the right time. You have created a detailed list.

    Out of your list if I have to choose 1, I would go for Horror action figures because they will give funny taste in Christmas season even though they are panicky:)

    Thanks a lot for sharing this post.

    1. I totally agree! This will be very original and not expected! Please, take a picture of the face of the person you will offer Leatherface to!

  12. Wow. Wow. Wow. I love your review on these action figures. And it intrigues me a lot. I followed up Naruto till the end and I loved Sasuke and Hinata. One Piece was also on my list of Manga and anime to watch. That aside I love every other figure and I would be elated to get any of these as a present this season.

  13. Wow. It was enough to see this character Rocky Balboa and think of my father. He is the biggest fan I know and I think he can tell every second of the films that Sylvester Stallone played. When I was younger he took me to many boxing matches and because of him I have a great passion for this sport.
    I would like to make him this Christmas gift and he will definitely be surprised. Do you think if I could do something personalized, for example being a text “for the best dad in the world” . Thanks a lot and keep in touch ! 

  14. Thanks very much for this article because I have been wondering what gifts to offer to my girlfriend but with this article I have now what to offer and I think am to offer the glow action figures because she loves wrestling very much. Thanks very much for taking away my burden. 

    1. Mugalu, you are hilarious! I am glad I could help and I am sure your girlfriend will love the Glow action figures. The fourth season will come out soon.
