Celebrate your Buffy, Bob’s Burgers, Home Alone, and other Die Hard fandom with 20th Century Fox Gifts
20th Century Fox is the home studio of countless pop culture icons. And being the holiday season, what better way to celebrate fandom than with something unrelated but has your fandom attached to it. I know that sounds derogatory, but it’s pretty much the source of my impulse spending and I’m a little salty about how much instant ramen I’ll be eating the next few months to recuperate from debt. But don’t get it twisted, I love this stuff despite the financial struggle it makes me put myself through. Anyway, here’s a list of gift ideas inspired by the franchises of 20th Century Fox, all details and pricing were provided by 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

A few characters from the classic Holiday film Home Alone are now receiving the Pop! vinyl treatment. This series features Kevin, he’s home alone and must protect his house! Coming equipped to take on anyone with his BB gun and a hot iron. Also, the “Wet Bandits” Harry and Marv.

The X-Files: Earth Children Are Weird: A Picture Book| Price: $13.29
Best pals Dana (Scully) and Fox (Mulder) have pitched a tent in the backyard for a sleepover. But the night is full of strange sounds, lights, and shadows. Surely there’s a rational, scientific explanation for everything . . . or is there? With beautiful illustrations of pint-sized Dana and Fox, this humorous and not-scary-at-all story will introduce the cult TV show to an entire new generation of fans.
A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic| Price: $15.29
The unconventional fan-favorite movie Die Hard is now an illustrated storybook for adults—complete with machine guns, European terrorists, and a cop who’s forced to rely on all his cunning and skills (and the help of a fellow officer) to save the day. Based on the classic “Night Before Christmas” poem and filled with whimsical illustrations, this cleverly reimagined homage is destined to become a holiday classic.
Personally, of all the items, the Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic is the coolest gift on the list. I mean it’s the greatest Christmas movie ever made -I will accept A Christmas Story, Elf, and The ORIGINAL Grinch as worthy equals- and it is finally getting to book it deserves!
Anyway, hope this helps your gift giving. Stay tuned for more gift lists for the fans in your life or for your own fandom. TREAT YO’ SELF!
