That one person who just so happens to be obsessed with some terrifying television show or book series that doesn’t seem to end? Look no further- here’s a list that’ll give you easy access to gift ideas in any fandom your character maniac is a part of (well, not every one is included here, but I can’t write a thousand-fandom list here), and to make it even better, all of these items are $20 or less (plus shipping and tax).
