You can never have enough gamer gear in your home.
Video game collectibles made by fans for fans tend to be more accurate and more enjoyable than the standard things sold at your local Target.
But finding those things can be hard, especially if you don’t know that you need it in your life.
We’ve got you covered!
We scoured Etsy for the best shops with fantastic video game merchandise to get your nerd fix on.
A lot of the shops in the list below feature more than one type of item, but we wanted to show you a vast world of what is out there.
Check out their shops to discover their other items!
Akujinsco sells a fantastic selection of eyewear in a variety of vibrant colors.
These glasses are the perfect final touch to your favorite “cheeky” cosplay or going on an undercover mission to convince someone to have a change of heart.
Some of their glasses are part of an interchangeable line, so you can swap out the arms to mix and match your colors.
They have glasses made from both plastic cut parts as well as 3D printed materials.
Frame shopping can be a chore. Trying to find a style that fits your face, finding a color or style that you’d be happy to wear every single day… and it’s hard to find anything video game related.
These hand painted frames allow you to have prescription lenses fitted into, as well as sunglasses. Complete your headgear with comfortable matching headphones that have some amazingly detailed designs on them.
All frame and headphone specs are listed in the descriptions, so you know exactly what you’re getting.
You can never have too many bow ties. Bow ties are cool, and your Doctor agrees.
DapperOnArrival has a wide variety of bow ties to choose from, and they’re available in both pre-tied and self-tied, so you don’t even have to know how to work one of those things.
Just because there’s nowhere to go right now doesn’t mean you can’t be dapper in your own house, or at the grocery store.
Besides, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for all those Roaring 20’s parties that will eventually happen.
You’ve gotta wear a mask these days, we all know that. But what’s the harm in wearing a mask over THAT mask?
Phoenix3Dcraft has two different 3D printed Scorpion masks, smoothed down, painted, and ready to wear.
Is Sub-Zero waiting in the freezer aisle, or waiting for you outside to finish dinner? Probably not, but you can still be battle-ready with these masks.
Note: these masks are, of course, not medical grade, and are for decorative purposes only. (the MKX version has EMPTY SPACES, for cripe’s sake!)
Books and Prints
MultiverseBooks has an assortment of books and prints that show you the anatomy and behaviors of fantastical creatures.
Think biology book, but about a hundred times more exciting.
These are the perfect coffee table books and posters for anyone who’s ever wondered just how short Yoshi’s tail really is.
Is Cubone’s skull really shaped like the one it wears? Only one way to find out!
One of the best things about being an adult is getting to eat what you want. And if you want to eat like you live in Hyrule, there’s only one thing stopping you: you need the cookbook.
The standard edition comes with 195 recipes, and the Master Edition has over 200. And yes – there’s also vegan and gluten free meals to make.
And in case you find yourself in Hyrule, they give you the ingredients to make it there, too.
These glossy 2.5-3.5” stickers aren’t a substitute for getting your Kanto region badges, but you can display them a bit easier.
Stick them on your laptop, your console, your walls, your binders, your cat. Okay, not the cat – that’s both a waste of a good sticker and it’s going to make him/her really annoyed with you.
They also carry a set of 8-bit video game stickers for those that aren’t quite Pokémon masters yet.
If you need to remember how to make a steel dagger or remember the description of a noonwraith, in case you’re unfortunate enough to come across one, these scrolls are a useful reminder.
These documents are great for displaying in your home or as that final added touch to your cosplay. Searching for ingredients for a potion of resist magic is much easier when you have the recipe right in front of you.
These handmade soy candles, melts, and chap sticks are inspired by your favorite video games, movies, and TV shows.
I will be the first of us to admit it – when I was kid, I wanted to share a paopu fruit with my best friend. Connected together, no matter how far away we were.
Sure, it looks like starfruit, but it’s gotta be completely different, right? The magic of the fruit must have made it taste different.
Bubbleandgeek says that their paopu fruit smells and tastes like star fruit, coconut, pineapple, and other tropical fruits.
Finally understand the wonders of the Destiny Islands when you smell these candles and chap sticks.
Wash your hands!! You’ve gotta do it, and these days, you’re probably washing up more frequently than you used to.
Well, you should be, anyways…
TheMagesEmporium sells some fantastic smelling soaps (you can request colors and scents) that will be the most used decoration you’ll ever own.
Get clean while simulating gaming or collecting coins. Just don’t eat the mushroom – it might help Mario, but it’s going to taste really bad.
“But what about when the designs are gone?” — Well, it’s just an excuse to finish off the bar so you can order some more!
If you’re a fan of baths, these are the bomb (sorry).
These bath bombs smell amazing, and have a long list of benefits, like soothing sunburn, skin moisturizing, and magnesium-based calming.
A lot of their bath bombs come with a surprise inside, like a charm or a Pokémon, so you get a reward for rewarding yourself!
Enamel Pins and Other Tiny Collectibles
The lanyards they hand out at the conventions are, generally, not the best.
We get it – it’s just something to put your badge on that they can buy in bulk to make sure everyone is easily able to display their badge.
For some more flair, you can always bring your own, and even carry one regularly when you’re not at a show.
These lanyards come in bulk with different designs on them, so you can choose when to wear which one, and gift them to your friends, too.
Your lanyards and bags are lacking something. They’re just not shiny enough!
PinDreams can help you fix that, and make sure that your fandoms are always on display.
Remember the good old days? Where kids rode bikes and played with sticks and you… okay, you were inside, getting good enough at Metroid to unlock the scene where you found out Samus Aran is a girl…
These high quality pins are a great way to show off your favorite video games every single day.
There are some things that every functioning adult needs: a wallet, keychain, decently sized flash drive, and a custom gaming mouse.
Fine, that last one is “less” of a necessity, but it’s nice to have.
GamerGiftsCo has small gifts that will leave a big impact with any gamer friend in your life. While you’re picking out some things for your friends, don’t forget to grab some goodies yourself.
You can get everything wrapped before it gets to you, too.
If you’re into tabletop gaming, there’s a good chance you’ve got mini figs and a few sets of die lying around.
But it’s never enough. Never.
3DTableTopWizard has an incredible selection of figurines, and they’ve even added Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer to their collection!
All figurines are 3D printed with high quality resin and are ready for you to paint them.
Don’t want to paint? They can do that, too – just give them a few more days.
No one really gives cards anymore. They’re impersonal, the writings are cliché, and they just sit in the bottom of shoebox once you’ve taken the money out of it (read: you toss it and SAY it’s in a shoebox somewhere).
These cards are blank inside so you can add more of your own puns or glue a few rupees inside, and are far more likely to be saved by your loved ones than the less pun-ny ones.
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that you don’t have to collect and piece together this Triforce.
The bad news is you can’t punch that question mark. It will burn from the light bulb and hurt from the whole, you punching it thing.
theBKPKshop has an assortment of beautiful handmade lamps that can sit on your bedside table, attached to the wall, or even be hung from the ceiling (kits for ceiling hanging are included for the ones that can).
These backlit wooden signs draw your eye to them, wherever it is in the room.
These signs hang just one inch off of the wall, so they won’t take up space and you won’t accidentally run into them.
You can request a different string of lights if you like, for further customization.
Senpai3D sells a lot of 3D printed display sets, weapons, and console accessories, but we wanted to feature these laser cut wood maps.
Look at the detail on those!
Not only can you get an accurate rendition of your favorite RPG map, but you can choose from an assortment of stains (you can even request a color that isn’t offered!) to really to match any decorating style.
Multiple layers of wood make these maps pop right off the wall.
If you need an excuse to have a piece of 8bit art the height of your forearm hanging on the wall, welcome to your new living room clock!
Each piece, ranging from 6.5” to 12” tall, is laser cut on Baltic Birch wood and painted with an air brush, giving these classic characters vibrant colors that will pop on any wall.
They’re all pretty cool, though, but you probably don’t need that many clocks.
That’s why you can get all of their designs with or without the clock parts, and they all come ready to hang on the wall.
These hand burned boxes come in several sizes, are large enough to store a deck of cards in and then some, and small enough to just accent your style.
If we’re being honest with each other, that box could stay empty forever and you’d still be just as happy to have it in your possession.
FreakArtisan is a fantastic pyrographer, who can get even the smallest details burned in without losing the design to scorch marks, which means you get a perfectly detailed keepsake that you’ll always cherish.
All you need to have ready when your crossbow shows up is a screwdriver so you can assemble it.
It comes with little rockets to shoot at your targets, ready to go. But if you’d rather get to the shooting part faster, they also have rubber band guns ready to aim.

You can also choose to have the inside hollowed out to use as a keepsake box.
ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: It’s A Nice Day For A Gamer Wedding.
The topper on your cake is a keepsake for the pair of you, and a symbol of who you are as a couple, so shouldn’t it represent you more than a tux or a white gown over a Barbie?

Plenty of these patterns use less than 20 colors, so they’re great patterns for you to learn a new hobby, too.
With easy to read PDF files, the only thing you really need to start these projects is some of your gaming time. (I’m sorry!)
For those of you that are skilled with a crochet hook, these patterns are for you.
LevelUpNerdAlert offers patterns for blankets, gloves, hats, and even coasters of Pokémon walking away from you.
If you haven’t crocheted that much before, the blanket and hat are the best starting patterns – circles can be an absolute pain to do if you’re still learning.

These cookie cutters will get you excited about decorating your cookies AND dunking them. Just try to catch all the crumbs!
On the Wall
This is your one stop shop for metal and wood signs, as well as wall decals for a more permanent effect.
Remind yourself what happens when you wander from GLaDOS’ test, or remind other people what happens when you gaming session is interrupted.
You have a choice of size and material, so that you can fit your sign on any door or wall you choose.
There’s one wall in your house right now that’s looking a little bare. You’re thinking about it right now, you know the one.
Now turn towards it and glare a little bit.
Now come back to me and get these wall pieces.
Slap one of them on that wall you were just staring at, and put the other in some random other place in your house.
Your kitchen ceiling, for example.
If that seems like too much of a stretch, I’d personally recommend the inside of your closet. Keep your friends searching for a while – the winner gets to choose the next game.
These shadow box dioramas make your favorite 8-bit classic video games pop and send you down memory lane.
Some of these boxes allow you to actually return to those memories, since part of its design is to hold your copy of that NES or SNES game.

Having coasters available that won’t wear down quickly from condensation means less time worrying about paper towels and more time gaming.
They even do custom coasters if you can’t find what you’re looking for.
Your gaming/living room needs a table. You need a spot for your drinks, remotes, game guides, etc.
If a coffee table is just too much for the size of your room, these side tables are a great alternative and have extra storage space underneath, which, for small spaces, is invaluable.
Get a pair of them so you and your player two can both access them from opposite sides of the couch.
The crafters over at ForeverWars are HUGE Star Wars fans.

For Your Game Gear
BACKLIT GAMEBOYS. I REPEAT: BACKLIT GAMEBOYS.
Some luckier kids had a limited edition one like the Pokémon yellow version and Donkey Kong Land gold, but most of us had the gray one or the transparent one.
Gamechangermods custom prints each shell after adding a Bivert chip for better screen resolution than you remember. You can even choose your own design.
And if you still need more convincing? Each refurbished Gameboy comes with a free game.
If you remember having to blow into the cartridge over and over again to get a game to work, then these cases are for you.
Cartridge games are a little harder to store without fear of dust, unless you’re one of those that has meticulously kept every single case that your games have come in.
The acrylic boxes store and display your games while protecting the tech bits, and they carry game wallets that hold your handheld as well as a few games for easy carrying.

For the PC gamer on the go, you know how important it is to keep your gear safe.
Everyone’s had that one time (or 40 times) that you’ve accidentally hit your bag on the edge of the wall when you turn a corner or your bag just slips off your shoulder.
The first thing you think is, “Dangit! Hope my laptop’s okay.”
SewninTN creates padded laptop sleeves with zippers for your charger and for extra protection, in case you’re the type who pulls the case out with the opening facing downwards.

What more logical place is there for your controllers than in a hand, and your headphones on a head?
These pieces have been designed with adults in mind, so your gear will be displayed in a place where you’ll know exactly where they are, and they won’t slip off, either.
Playstation and Xbox controllers are slightly different, enough that it could make or break the hand – which is why you can adjust the fingers a bit for the best fit for your controller.

The three biggest hurdles with having a multi-piece cosplay is accuracy, skill, and time.
If you’re like me, you have big cosplay dreams. If you’re even more like me, you have no time to get it done, and have been Doctor Who for the last six cons because you own a suit and a tan raincoat.
ShopCosplayCostume has a team of creators that create everything only AFTER you order – that’s because they use your measurements to create ready-to-wear cosplays.
This kind of craftsmanship takes time, so make sure to order about a month and a half beforehand to give you plenty of time to prepare for the show.
It’s fun getting called out at a convention because someone else recognizes your cosplay.
It’s equally as frustrating getting called the wrong thing because your cosplay is similar to one that they do recognize (I’m looking at you, high school-based JRPGs).
These ID badges will help identify you in a crowd of suited agents and students, and they can easily hang with your con badge if you don’t want the clip to pinch your fabric.
