Dino-rific Gifts for Someone with a Brachiosaur Sized Collection!
Getting something cool for a Jurassic Park fan can be hard. Not everyone wants toys. We get it. We love the action figures, but sometimes you need something you can get a little more use out of. So we compiled a list of 8 of the greatest dinosaur themed gifts that won’t force you to drop thousands on actual fossils (we know it would make anyone super happy — but let’s try to keep within our budget for the month).
Dinosaur Adult Coloring Book
Adult coloring books are all the rage — and before you ask, not that kind of adult (get your mind out of the gutter!). They’re more complicated than the ones we grew up with, and a great way to relax and nurture your creativity. Simply bust out your markers and get to coloring all your favorite Jurassic (and Cretaceous) creatures!
Dino Ice Trays
It’s important to keep the Dino-DNA samples cool — that’s why they kept them in the freezer in the movies. Now you too can use Dino-DNA…to keep your drinks frosty! These dino ice trays are the perfect way to enjoy a drink on a warm day while still letting people know you’d rather be at Jurassic Park.
This mug is right. Tea always finds a way — a way into our bellies! Just like a T-Rex rips into people, the lucky recipient of this mug will be ripping into a new box of tea so they can use it as soon as possible. It’s a great addition to any shelf, be it one in your pantry or in your collection. Get your favorite dino fan something they can use every day, while still telling the world where their passion lays.
Isla Nublar Tourist Tank top
Because visiting dino-island is great — but you have to get a souvenir! Sure, Isla Nublar is covered in dinosaurs who don’t roam in enclosures, and sure, it’s not “safe” to hang out there — but don’t let that stop you from taking an exotic trip! If you’re one of those “better safe than eaten by dinosaurs” types, you can just pretend you went by rocking this fantastic top, just in time for summer. Cool off while looking cool in this rad new touristy top!
Dino Cookie Cutters
Ready to make a movie snack that lets you eat the dinosaurs back (did we just rhyme? You bet Jurr-ass we did)? These cookie cutters will help you create the perfect dessert to go with some good old fashioned Jurassic Park binge watching. For best results, eat with chocolate syrup so you can play Tar Pits!
Retro Neon Tank Top
It’s impossible to look at this tank top and not say, “Dude! It feels like the 90’s in here!”…which is exactly why you should buy it. It looks like it came out with the first movie, all the while sporting the clean lines of modern technology. Trust us, any Jurassic Park fan will love it.
Jurassic Park Novel
Okay, so a lot of major fans may have already read the book, but no one can resist a nice hardcover edition to cap off your collection. It looks really nice on a shelf with all the toys surrounding it, or next to any dinosaur props. For best results, we recommend you accent it with a dinosaur themed bookmark.
Jurassic World Gift Set
This can be a little hit or miss, so judge the waters accordingly (and make sure they don’t have a mosasaurus). Fans tend to be pretty love it or hate it when it comes to Jurassic World. We are personally in the “love” category and would be THRILLED if someone gave us a copy or three of this collector’s edition gift set. It comes with 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and a Digital Copy of Jurassic World, so basically every format you could ever want (except 4K). It also comes with a killer Indominus Rex and Tyrannosaurus Rex statue — ready to duke it out on your shelf. The statue is honestly the coolest part, and you might want to pick it up just for that.
Jurassic Park Ultimate Trilogy Gift Set
This is the big one. If you know a fan, and they don’t have this already, get it for them now. This is the original trilogy, on Blu-ray. It comes in a beautiful box with a certificate of authenticity so other fans know it’s legit. The best part? It is completed by a statue of a T-rex bursting through the iconic gates of the park. Okay, okay, to be fair that never happened in the movie, but it sure is awesome!
