Whether it’s for a friend, boyfriend or close family member, this is surely a product they’d love to receive!
2. Superman Encyclopedia
For those who have everything, they might appreciate this codex of knowledge on everything Superman. It might not have all the knowledge you might find in the Fortress of Solitude but let’s be honest, the book form of that is probably too big for any shelf.
3. Funko POP Figure
An essential addition to any fan’s Funko POP collection. This vinyl model of Superman from Funko’s Heroes line looks almost ready to leap into the sky and soar like a plane. What a great item to place on your shelf of figures or collectibles!

Truly feel like you could save the world on your laziest days with a onesie of the superhero’s iconic outfit. It also comes with a cape you can remove to give that extra-heroic feeling during a quiet night in.
8. Superman Coffee Machine
As far as we know, the Man of Steel doesn’t drink coffee. He gets all his energy from our yellow sun. But if he had a coffee machine, he’d probably have this one. This unique Superman gift comes with its own matching super-mug too.
9. Symbol Pewter Keyring
It’s a shame that most of us don’t have x-ray vision. You wouldn’t lose anything when you can see though walls and inside cupboards. For when you can’t, this nifty pewter keyring can at least help keep your keys visible and in one place.

12. Stainless Steel Ring
We’ve speculated that the House of El might class as a dynasty so what better way to identify the dynasty with a stainless steel signet ring stylishly highlighted with red? With a higher stainless steel rating than usual, it is abnormally tough just like the man himself.

16. 3D Symbol Slippers
Superman’s super-durability means he’s not bothered about the chilly winds that blow into the Fortress of Solitude. For everyone else, these comfy S-label slippers with the iconic blue-and-red are a very snug choice.
17. Superman Silhouette T Shirt
We love Superman. We love him so much that we love this t-shirt that puts Superman in Superman. How could this cool apparel be any better? How about the inner Superman being a genuine Alex Ross print?
18. Floating Bookshelf
