What to gift your fellow Lego lover? Lego sets are the first things that will come to your mind while considering Lego gift ideas. However, if the gift is for someone whose Lego collection you are unaware of, choosing the Lego sets can be tricky as you would not want to gift the model that the person already has. On the other hand, if you know all about the Lego collection of the person, say your close friend or a kid or an adult from your family, Lego sets can be easily picked up as gift options, especially if you know which series they prefer most. For example, a Star Wars fan will definitely love a set from the Star Wars franchise.
Now, if a person has a number of Lego sets on display, you can be a little creative with unique gift ideas for Lego lovers. Why not get lighting kits for the Lego sets already in their possession? This will give them the idea that you care a lot about their preferences. Besides, you can never be wrong in gifting small Lego-based trinkets that will put a smile on the recipient’s face. Check out the three gift ideas to help you get started.
Three Gift Ideas For Lego Enthusiasts
You might still be confused at which gift idea will work the best for the recipient and therefore, here is a detailed guide on choosing the gifts for Lego lovers, adults and kids alike. Even if you are new to the Lego world, a thorough observation of the recipients’ preferences and collections can help you out.
Gifts For Users With Who Own Lego Sets
If the gift is for someone of the family or friend, you will generally have full idea of all the sets owned. If it is for a co-worker or someone whose preferences or collections are unknown to you, there is no shame in asking which sets they own. You can even look out for their favorite movie, show or interest in any field. For example, the best Lego gifts for someone in law enforcement field will be light kits for Police Station 60141 and 10278 great options while Harry Potter fans will find the lighting kit for Hogwarts Room of Requirement 75966 a perfect gift to create the magical ambience.
Needless to say, it will come handy to know the names of the sets owned by the recipient even though the light kits from Lightailing, as well as Briksmax are customizable to be used in different models from the same category. Gifting the light kit for T. rex Transport 75933 will be useful even if the person has only the Stygimoloch Breakout 75927 set and he/she might even consider buying the former set later. But the best presents for Lego lovers will be gifting both the Lego set and the light kit as a complete package so that the person does not find the gift somewhat incomplete, although useful.
The light kits are suitable for anyone above six, so it is better not gift these to younger ones. However, it is still a gift if an adult can install the lights for the kids below six or if the kid can use the kit when he/she grows up. In case of adults, the light kits are easily installable with the instruction manual provided for each kit, therefore, can be utilized by beginners and experts alike even though they do not have electrical skills.
Lego Sets For Users Who Do Not Own Many Sets
Undoubtedly, the best gifts for Lego lovers will always be the Lego sets from various categories that they like or have experience with. It does not matter whether the person has several Lego sets built and displayed at home, or have a handful of structures.
