The holiday season is upon us, and now is the time is upon. Here are the best gifts to buy your Baldur’s Gate 3 fan and loved ones this holiday season.
Holiday Gift Guide for the Baldur’s Gate 3 Fan in Your Life (2023)
If there’s one game that’s been dominating player’s minds like an Illithid parasite, it’s Baldur’s Gate 3. And it’s very likely you know someone who’s spent dozens (if not hundreds) of hours playing the game. Their obsession is your gain this holiday season, as there’s no shortage of gifts you can buy your Baldur’s Gate 3 fanatic.
An Original Commission of their Character
Every player painstakingly crafts their character in Baldur’s Gate 3. And by the end of the game, every player has a strong connection to that character. So, why not immortalize that journey with a commission of your loved one’s character?
And if you’re hoping to avoid the Baldur’s Gate 3 upcharge, look up “DND custom art” instead of “BG3”. This artist makes great anime-style custom portraits for a minimum of $28 USD here.
But if you want to really make your fan swoon, commission a piece with both their character and their love interest.
A Real-Life Night Orchid ($55 USD)
Shadowheart’s treasured flower is the Night Orchid, and it’s one of the last things she remembers she loves. It’s the best gift to give her if you’re trying to romance her. And it might work on your crush or beloved, too!
The Black Orchid, like the Night Orchid, is a deep shade of purple. But you don’t have to go to the Shadow-Cursed Lands to find it! You don’t even need to leave your chair. You can order it online here for $55 USD.
Orchids are also much easier to take care of than you might expect! But if your friend is a first-time orchid owner, they’ll appreciate it if you list out all the instructions the orchid will need to thrive.
A Replica of their Favorite Weapon
Baldur’s Gate 3 is full of legendary weapons. And why leave those beautiful murder sticks stuck in game when you can have them hanging on your wall?
Many of Baldur’s Gate 3 weapons have been faithfully recreated using 3D printing, sanding, and meticulous painting. Your goal should be to find out which your friend or loved one likes the best.
I also highly recommend you get a stand for their weapon! This can really elevate the entire gift, and it’s not particularly expensive or hard to make.
A Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set
If Baldur’s Gate 3 was your fans’ first foray into the world of Dungeons and Dragons, it might be time to start a brand-new adventure—this time at someone’s dining room table.
The Dungeons and Dragons Starter set comes with everything they’ll need to get started. From the guidebooks to the dice. But be a pal and grab them a fancy set of dice, too. Those are the best part.
You can purchase the starter kit here for $19.99 USD.
The Mysterious Artifact / Astral Prism Replica
One of the most iconic items you’ll find in the game is the Astral Prism. This Prism is what keeps the disparate collection of vagabonds and strays you call your party from being overcome by their Mind Flayer parasite. And it looks pretty cool, too.
Note, the LED stand that it’s on doesn’t come with it! So, if you like the glowing red effect, be sure to grab that LED stand before you give it to your fan!
The Mysterious Artifact can be purchased here for $63.49 USD.
But if this one sells out, don’t worry. There are plenty of others on Etsy you can grab, too.
Get Their Favorite Character to Leave Them a Message
This is a great option if your fan is head over heels in love with one of the characters in Baldur’s Gate 3. And who can blame them?
You can hire some of the voice actors in Baldur’s Gate 3 to make a video either roasting, offering a pep talk or advice, or simply wishing your loved one a happy birthday. The easiest way to do this is through Cameo, where Astarion, the Narrator, Jalheira, Wyll, Lae’zel, Orin the Red, Rolan, and Mystra are all offering their services.
The prices vary depending on which actor you’d like to commission. But this is a fun, personal gift and it can be delivered in 24 hours.
You can purchase the gift here for 40$ USD to $125 USD. Unsurprisingly, Astarion charges the most.
A Baldur’s Gate 3 Sticker Pack
So, a lot of the gifts on this list can run up quite the bill. But if you’re looking for something a little more affordable, I highly recommend stickers! Stickers can be placed on consoles, PCs, water bottles, laptops, or whatever unsuspecting surface your friend prefers.
And there are dozens of hilarious and adorable stickers to choose from. These stickers can run from $1 USD to $3.50 USD. Check out all the options here.
