It’s less than a month until Christmas, and with festive carols and commercials now inundating us from every angle it seems like a good time to take a look at some fun Wonder Woman gift ideas. Whether you’ve got a Wonder Woman fan in your life or you are one yourself and are looking to make a list for Santa, here are some fun Wonder Woman products for you to consider.
Most of these items will have links to websites that carry them, but I’d encourage you to support local business and pop by a comic shop before you buy something online. Most comic shops carry a lot of great items, and would be glad to help you find some cool Wonder Woman stuff. You can find your LCS here, or call 1-800-COMIC-BOOK.
Now let’s don our gay apparel and sink into the consumerist morass that the holidays have become with these fantastic gift ideas:
Smallville Season 11 #16-19
There are a few Wonder Woman comics on the stands right now, including her eponymous series and the not so great Superman/Wonder Woman, but for me the best Wonder Woman story this year was actually in Smallville Season 11. It’s a fun new take on her origin, with excellent writing and art from Bryan Q. Miller and Jorge Jimenez. The issues haven’t been collected in a single book yet, but you can probably find them individually at your local comic shop.
DC Direct makes some nice action figures, and have combined two cool heroines into one set featuring their New 52 designs. Wonder Woman and Katana both come with swords, which is always a good time. You can make them duel! Wonder Woman is available individually as well, but with this set she can have a friend.
If you’re looking to go a little cheaper with a Wonder Woman figure, consider this Papercraft doll. You punch out the pieces, fold them, and put it all together and you’ve got a Wonder Woman. Plus you get the pride of making it yourself, and that’s just priceless.
Now if you’re looking to go a little pricier, consider this fine statue. A lot of Wonder Woman statues are kind of gross and weirdly sexualized, but this one has a classy World War Two pin-up vibe and showcases Wonder Woman’s beauty AND strength. It’s also the most clothes I’ve seen on Wonder Woman in a long time.
There are tons of great Wonder Woman t-shirts at sites like Stylin’ Online and Superhero Stuff, though the girl ones always have way cooler designs than the boy ones. Misandry! I picked the t-shirt above as an example because I liked the simplicity of it. It’s very iconic. But there are SO many more to choose from.
If a t-shirt just isn’t enough, consider these footy pajamas with a hood. You can spend your nights enveloped in your Wonder Woman fandom, having dreams about bullet deflecting and invisible jet flying. Plus, they look really cozy. I’m sure they’ll keep you warm on those cold winter nights.
My cousin’s daughter’s birthday party was a few weeks ago, and everyone else brought Disney princess related gifts. I brought this. If you’ve got a little kid to buy for this year, pick up this awesome set. It talks and everything, plus a warrior princess is a fun counterpoint to Disney princesses.
Do you know a Wonder Woman fan who has every Wonder Woman related thing? I bet they don’t have a custom made Wonder Woman (and friends!) steering wheel cover. This is the kind of thing Etsy was made for.
This isn’t a Wonder Woman gift directly, but there is a Wonder Woman story inside. Plus, Lois Lane is fantastic too, and this book collects a lot of great stories from the past 75 years. Any Wonder Woman fan would probably love this book as well.
And now you’re all set for the holidays! Happy (insert whatever you celebrate)! I sincerely hope that you don’t get trampled on Black Friday.
