Look, I know gift cards can seem like they're a rushed gift or they're not personal, but wouldn't you rather have that than a shirt in the wrong size or another pair of fuzzy socks? (And I'm saying this as someone who loves fuzzy socks.) Sometimes a friend or family member wants to show you they care by giving you the freedom to choose your own gift. Quite frankly, I'm here for it.

But now you have these gift cards and you’re not sure what to spend it on. Luckily for you, we’ve been creating detailed fandom lists of products that are calling out your gift card's name and have compiled them right here for you. Whether you like the handmade nature of Etsy, are looking for the perfect reading accessory, need more Star Wars merch in your life, or are planning out your next cosplay — there's a gift guide for that.
