Few moments in recent movie history have been as impactful as the moment when Thanos snapped his fingers wearing the Infinity Gauntlet at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. If you were in the theater watching that movie for the first time, the crowd’s response was probably either gasps and cries or dead silence.

The gauntlet comes back at the end of Avengers: Endgame as well to create one of the saddest movie franchise finales of all time. Thanos’s Infinity Gauntlet plays an important role in every marvel fan’s interests no matter how they feel about it.

This LEGO Infinity Gauntlet building kit, more than just a package of clunky blocks, is the perfect gift for adults who are fans of the Avengers and like to work with their hands. It’s an intricate model that requires a lot of time and patience to create a beautiful final design. It also gives them something really cool to display in their home that doubles as a great conversation piece.

What guy hasn’t dreamt of being Captain America at least once in their life? And with Chris Evans playing the role in the movies, it’s hard to deny the appeal of this superhero.

Captain America’s most distinguishing feature is his shield made from vibranium,  which comes from Wakanda. The shield is virtually indestructible and helps this Avenger save the world on more than one occasion. Not everyone can have a shield made of vibranium, but everyone can have a shirt that replicates the real thing.

This Captain America shirt is a fun simple design of the infamous shield and can be worn without the wearer looking too over the top. It comes in men’s women’s and children’s sizes so any person in your life can rep this iconic symbol.

Few people can wield Thor’s hammer Mjolnir. Some individuals who have proven capable of lifting it include Captain America, Loki, and Wonder Woman. Just like becoming Captain America, many people have dreams of being worthy enough to wield Mjolnir. This bottle opener finally gives them the chance, albeit in a slightly different way.

It is a surprisingly accurate replica of Thor’s hammer in miniature form. Instead of being able to summon lightning, this hammer has the power to open any bottle of beer or soda. Which is just as cool, right?

It’s a fun gift that would work as a stocking stuffer or a gift on its own. It measures just over six inches by two inches and can be taken anywhere. Grab a few and give them to all the Thor fans in your life.

This shirt is another subtle reference to one of Marvel’s newest TV shows, WandaVision. The show takes place after the events of Avengers: Infinity War, where Thanos kills Vision in the process of stealing the Mind Stone from him. Wanda Maximoff, also known as Scarlett Witch, and Vision had fallen in love at this point and his death sent her into a grief spiral that the show explores.

Toward the end of season one, Wanda discovered a property deed that Vision had left her, on which he’d doodled a heart in the place he wanted to build their home. Inside the heart, he wrote “To grow old in,” and put his initials at the bottom.

It’s a heartbreaking and touching moment from a fantastic series. This WandaVision T-shirt will allow fans to show their tender side and remind the world of this scene.
