Perhaps the only thing more joyous than receiving LEGO during the holidays is gifting it!
With that in mind, we've compiled the Brickset Holiday Gift Guide, highlighting our picks for the best offerings from LEGO to help repair your reputation from the ugly sweater you gave last year.
We've chosen various price points to suit your gift giving needs, from stocking stuffers to sets so large you'll run out of wrapping paper! Within each price segment, we'll identify two sets: one appropriate for children, and one appropriate for children-at-heart.
"Stocking Stuffers": $10 and under
For Children: 40058 Decorating the Tree
A Christmas present that's a LEGO set of people gathering around a Christmas tree with presents? That's so meta!
Polybags are generally designed to be impulse buys, and therefore usually do not present the best value for consumers. 40058 Decorating the Tree is an offering that bucks that trend; for $7.99 USD, you get 110-pieces and among them are two minifigures.
Moreover, the set itself does not suffer from the feeling that corners were cut in order to hold to the low price point; the tree is a fair representation, and there are plenty of presents to go under it.
For Adults: 850705 Salt and Pepper Shaker set
Salt and pepper shakers serve as conversation pieces just as much as their more mundane job of containment, and being shaken. With that in mind, don't let your loved one pass on the opportunity to profess their love of LEGO and put in on their table for all the world to see!
The Salt and Pepper Shakers are up-sized to 2.5" x 2". The product description says they are 600x larger than a 1 x 1 brick, but somehow that math doesn't add up. Never mind that though, they're still cool.
Do you have other gift suggestions in this price segment? Feel free to share them with everyone in the comments. And tune in tomorrow for our picks in the $10 - $25 range!
