A high-ranking entry in our guide to the very best LEGO playsets under $25, this is a great option if you’re looking for low-cost Minecraft gifts that your child can take along to their friend’s birthday party.

As a parent, you’ll find a lot to like about the ThinkFun Minecraft Magnetic Travel Puzzle Logic Game.
For one thing, it’s easily portable and, as its name implies, designed for travel, so it’s great for keeping your young Minecraft fan occupied on long journeys and avoiding all those “Are we there yet?” pleas.
For another, it combines imaginative play with real brain games suitable for kids 8+, which can be a great way to develop their problem-solving skills.
Meanwhile, kids may find it a more engaging way of learning than other brain training games like the Color Catch Game and will undoubtedly love the sense of accomplishment they get from seeing this book-based adventure through to the end.
11. Ravensburger Minecraft: Builders & Biomes Strategy Board Game
Not only is the Ravensburger Minecraft: Builders & Biomes Strategy Board Game another great way to get them away from the computer screen for a while, it’s also an engaging game in its own right.
Suitable for slightly older children aged 10+, this easy-to-learn strategy game can be played by up to 4 players who take turns to explore the Overworld and build new structures en route to victory.
While it may not be as educational as their favorite maths board games, it’s certainly a fun way to improve their problem-solving prowess.
12. Minecraft Daytime 7 Piece Full Bed Set
The Minecraft bed set we looked at earlier may be popular for some, but if your little gamer isn’t a fan of those creepy Creepers, you may find that this Minecraft Daytime 7 Piece Full Bed Set is more to their liking.
The vibrant design is printed on super-soft, fade-resistant Microfiber that ensures the comforter, sheet, and two pillowcases can continue to be used night after night, wash after wash.

So, you already bought them the six-pack of mini-figures we saw earlier, and now they want to expand their Minecraft figure collection.

Though it’s classed as a light-up figure, it’s less of a play-thing and more of an accessory that can serve well as a bedside table light.
Adding to the fun, the light-up figure also plays Creeper zombie sounds when pressed.
18. Minecraft Enchanted Bow with Potion-Tip Arrow
Much like the Diamond Sword we looked at before, this Minecraft Enchanted Bow with Potion-Tip Arrow could be the perfect finishing touch to their Minecraft-themed costume, or it can simply be a fun plaything in their own right.
One of the popular Minecraft gifts for encouraging imaginative play is a working toy in which the arrow can be loaded into the bow and fired as far as 20 ft.

22. 100 PICS Unofficial and Independent Minecraft Guide
Looking for the perfect way to incorporate Minecraft into their learning? The 100 PICS Unofficial and Independent Minecraft Guide may be just what you’re looking for.
Though billed as a guide, it’s a fun travel-sized card game for kids in which they first have to identify the Minecraft-related object or character before figuring out how to spell it.
To help them along, all the letters from the correct word are printed on the bottom of the card in scrambled up order, meaning all they have to do is arrange them correctly to spell the word.
A fun way to engage them in learning their spellings, the game contains 50 colorful cards and can be played solo or in a group.
23. Minecraft Periodic Table of Elements
Designed for use with their Minecraft mini-figures, this Minecraft Periodic Table of Elements contains 27 one-inch blocks replicating essential Minecraft elements such as Diamond Ore, Glowstone, Lava, Air, Water, and more.

No, they enjoy this one so much because it’s packed full of puzzles, games, coloring-in pages, and more, all ensuring that they’re kept well-entertained whether it’s on a long journey, a rainy day, or simply a few hours away from the screen.
Choosing the Best Minecraft Gifts for Kids: A Buyer’s Guide
Books, clothes, toys, playsets, and more, there’s a Minecraft version of it if it exists. That’s great if you know exactly what to get them, but if you’ve been through our top 25 gift ideas and still aren’t sure which one to buy, the following pointers may help you decide.
As a game, Minecraft is rated 7+, so it’s no surprise that the majority of Minecraft gifts are also targeted at that age group.
That said, the game’s appeal is so universal that kids still enjoy it even once they hit double figures.
That means you’re going to find gift ideas for all different age ranges, and picking the right one does make a difference.
If you’re going with one of the many popular Minecraft LEGO sets, for example, then one that’s aimed at children aged 10+ may be so challenging for younger children that they get no enjoyment out of it, while a toy aimed at 7 year-olds is unlikely to truly engage your pre-teen.
Passions and Interests
OK, so we know that they love Minecraft, but what else inspires them when the video game is turned off?
If the thing that they love about Minecraft is that it allows them to build and create, then yes, a LEGO set or creative tools like the Minecraft Periodic Table of Elements blocks will ensure they have the same kind of fun offline as they do on.
If what they love is that it sparks their imagination then any of the mini-figures that they can use may be more to their liking.
There’s a big difference between going all out to buy them a brand new bedspread or that huge 564 piece LEGO Minecraft – The Crafting Box set for Christmas for their birthday or spending a few dollars on those Minecraft Stickers to reward them for doing well on a test.
Different occasions may require different budgets, but even if money is no object, there still might be times when it’s more appropriate to get one kind of gift over another.
Your child’s classmate’s birthday party may not warrant the same kind of extravagant gift that your own child’s birthday would, so it may be a good idea to use the occasion itself as a guide when choosing the perfect Minecraft gift.
Minecraft Gifts: The Perfect Present for Creative Kids
There’s no question that one of the main reasons why the Minecraft video game has enjoyed such unprecedented success is that, unlike other video games, there’s much more to it than simply wandering around and blasting things with a gun.
It’s a game that requires creativity, logical thinking, and problem-solving skills. This means that parents are more likely to let their kids enjoy it as it helps with their learning and development while the kids themselves enjoy the challenge and imaginative thinking that comes with using Minecraft to build a whole new world.
It also means that many of the best Minecraft gifts for kids also serve a similar purpose. The Ravensburger Minecraft: Builders & Biomes Strategy Board Game and many of the other games featured in this list can all be every bit as mentally stimulating as Minecraft itself, while LEGO sets and other toys are ideal aids for creative play that fires their imagination.
Still, not every gift has to serve a purpose. Options like the Minecraft Sprites Characters T-Shirt may not do much to aid learning, but they’ll certainly think it looks cool, and if you’re simply looking to give them a gift as a treat or reward, then it will more than do the job.
In other words, no matter what the occasion, no matter what age your kids are, and no matter what else they enjoy, you’re always bound to find the perfect Minecraft gift just for them.
