10 Creative Gifts for People Who Love The Hobbit

First thing’s first, who DOESN’T love The Hobbit?

I do. You do. Your kids do. Your parents do. Your spouse does.

Whether you are a diehard book lover quoting chapter and verse at your Middle Earth discussion group or are new to the story thanks to Benedict Cumberbatch’s voicing of Smaug in the newest Hobbit movie, there are many glorious Hobbit-inspired things in this world to admire, wish for, buy, put on your Christmas list, or wrap up for everyone on your list.

The world J.R.R. Tolkien created in 1937 was powerful enough — mythical enough — to reverberate in the [real?] world for generations. And now — I shudder to think of it — any fool with $100 can buy their own ring to rule them all.

Take a look at these 10 creative gifts for people who love The Hobbit.
