As a fan of Doctor Who, and other science fiction based books, films, and television series, I'm extremely easy to shop for. But, not everyone is a fan of Doctor Who, and when it comes time to buy a gift, whether it's for a birthday, a Holiday, or a "just because" occasion, they may scratch their heads on what to buy.
In this guide, I'll show several examples of toys, gadgets, and clothing that fans of Doctor Who may like to receive as gifts. These are all items I would jump up and down over, and they all can be found online. I have adults in mind when talking about these items, but some of these would also work as Doctor Who Toys for Kids.
Being a T-shirt and jeans sort of gal, I really like my themed shirts. For fans of Doctor Who, there are many styles of Tshirts to choose from, whether they feature the Doctor (such as above, with the 10th Doctor), a Dalek, the TARDIS, the Doctor Who logo, or any number of the characters and villians.
Statues also make wonderful gifts for fans of the show, though they can be pricey. The Doctor Who series has four out (that I can recall) beginning with "Dalek's Destruction". It measures 11.42" W x 11.81" D x 12.6" H and is a great collector item because there were only 900 made. It is metallic, wonderfully well made, and is a near exact replica from the "Dalek" episode of Christopher Eccleston's series (the 9th Doctor). Also available from collector websites and other various online websites (such as Amazon or eBay) are the statues "Cybercontroller", "Doctor and Davros", and "The Master and Auton".
Also fun little trinkets can be cell phone charms. Above, I've included one of a rotating Cyberman, but they can be found in other characters as well. If the receiver is a woman or girl, they may also like to receive jewelry such as Dalek or TARDIS earrings or necklaces and for the guys, a pair of custom Dalek or TARDIS cufflinks can be purchased on websites such as eBay.
Figure Gift Sets also make great gifts and would be great coupled with a Flight Control TARDIS (both found above). The Tardis is very like the actual TARDIS and though it is made of plastic, it has a textured look and has working lights and sounds. It can rotate, move about, and makes rumbling and dematerializing sounds, and has working doors which open to show the interior of the TARDIS.
Gift Sets of figures are great because they can represent a favorite episode. I have chosen to show the Fires of Pompeii gift set, above, because it is one of my favorite episodes featuring David Tennant, the 10th Doctor. It includes a Roman Soldier (5") and a Pyrovile (8"). They are very collectible and would work well for fans who collect the character figures such as the Eleven Doctor Who figures.
Besides these types of gifts, more obvious ones would be the television series and specials DVDs if they do not already own them, as well as any of the scores and scores of books from the decades long history of the series. There is a Doctor Who magazine which can be purchased (though it is extremely pricey), as well as collectible comics.
Any of these items would make a great gift for a fan of the Doctor Who television series.
