The genre it helped spawn may be everywhere now, but Lord of the Rings remains a real cultural touchstone. It has inspired countless high fantasy and sorcery epics and become itself an abiding part of our cultural vocabulary. From hobbits to ring wraiths to the idea of the one, precious ring inexorably corrupting its owner, Tolkien’s variegated universe still inspires the imagination like nothing else. Here are 9 of the best gifts for Lord of the Rings fans this holiday season.

The Hobbit Bofur Hat is practically required headgear if you’re reclaiming Lonely Mountain, or walking to the train this winter on your way to play some LOTR trivial pursuit.
