There are few games out there with as enduring a legacy as Minecraft. Despite the game’s low-graphics blocky look, Minecraft has been capturing the imagination of kids around the world since 2011 and become one of the most-loved games of all time. 

Which is exactly why Minecraft gifts are such a perfect choice for kids! 

Favorite Minecraft Gifts for Kids 

As a game, Minecraft leans hard into creativity and personalization, and many of the gifts in this guide expand on those themes. This isn’t just a list of Minecraft toys to play with (you can get that here), but rather a list of different kinds of gifts you can buy for Minecraft fans of all ages. 

1. Minecraft Camp

A fun and practical gift, kids can join a 1-week Minecraft camp with CodeWizardsHQ.

3. Minecraft: The Island, Book or Audiobook 

Minecraft The Island

For ages 8-12

If your kids are looking for an amazing story set in the Minecraft world, this is the book you’re looking for. It’s the first of the official Minecraft novels, written by author Max Brooks (World War Z), and it is an excellent read!

I highly suggest getting the audiobook version narrated by Jack Black, as he absolutely kills it. 

And while the recommended reading age is 8-12, don’t let that scare you off. While there are some tense moments, my son loved the audiobook version at age 5 and I found it entertaining even as an adult.

Choose the Best Minecraft Gift

Minecraft is one of those games that has near-universal appeal since it offers so many different ways to play. Kids who enjoy fighting games have tons of zombies and skeletons to fight. Kids who love exploration can discover underwater temples or hidden underground cities. And kids who just want to play with blocks can dive into creative mode and build to their hearts’ content!

That versatility is great, but it also means there’s not really a one-size-fits-all kind of solution for choosing the best Minecraft gift. It’s important to think about the individual kid and what they enjoy about the game when choosing what to get.

For example, my son has really been enjoying defending the villages against zombies recently. He loves pretending that he is a mighty warrior, so something like the NERF blaster or Netherite sword would be tons of fun for him. My daughter, on the other hand, likes building farms in creative mode. We turn the enemies off completely so she doesn’t even have to look at a zombie. She would adore some of the Minecraft plush toys, or the piggy bank. 

Both of them enjoy flipping through Minecraft building guides and both would love decorating their rooms with Minecraft goodies. 

The easiest way to guide your decision is to find out about the parts of the game your kids love and why. Good luck!
