The 8 Best Gifts for ‘Lord of the Rings’ Fans

It’s been 15 years since the last “Lord of the Rings” film was released, and four years since “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” premiered (stream, $3.99 on Amazon), yet the franchise remains a cultural touchstone. J.R.R. Tolkien’s universe of high fantasy adventure and epic battles continues to resonate with pop culture fans both young and old, while inspiring the imagination like nothing else. Whether you’re a big “LOTR” fan or have one in your life, here are eight gifts that are as memorable as the films themselves.

1. “Lord of the Rings” Holiday Sweater

This oil pastel on paper drawing showcases, “the melting of the master ring in a fire of purification.” Purchase: $1820.00 on SaatchiArt.com.

5. Pyrrha Sterling Silver Dragon Talisman Necklace
