Jurassic Park is a timeless movie series that has managed to defy the odds and find success with a new generation. While some claim that there are only so many times you can make the same mistake, true fans know that ego overrides safety in the human spirit.
Even more so, while the Jurassic Park franchise may follow the same storyline, no one else has created something like it. That’s why Jurassic Park fans are unshakingly dedicated.
Here are ten of the best gifts for the devoted Jurassic Park fan in your life.
Real Dinosaur Teeth
While you may not be able to purchase a real dinosaur, you can get a part of one. Everyone knows that the raptors are the real heroes of the Jurassic Park franchise. Celebrate these clever girls with some real raptor dinosaur teeth.
Put this one-of-a-kind item in a protective cube or secure it to a necklace for an unforgettable gift.
Vintage Jurassic Park T-Shirt
While Jurassic World is a standalone success, nothing beats the nostalgia of the original Jurassic Park logo. Grab your friend a vintage Jurassic Park t-shirt, complete with the red and yellow logo, and blacked-out silhouette of a T-rex.
Dino Kitchen Utensils
For a gift that puts the “fun” in “functional,” buy some dinosaur-shaped kitchen utensils. You can get a brontosaurus soup ladle or a triceratops taco holder. Bring it all together with a T-rex pasta server or a T-rex bottle opener.
Dinosaur Bones Necklace
If real dinosaur bones aren’t right for the Jurassic Park fan in your life, consider a different take on dino-themed jewelry. You can get a stylish necklace that replicates an assembled T-rex fossil, or delicate gold chains with dinosaur-shaped collar clips. These fashionable pieces are even work-friendly.
Inflatable T-rex Costume
Inflatable T-rex costumes have been all the rage in recent years. If your friend has missed out on this trend, it’s time to help them live their best life. Not only does this costume make a great novelty for parties, but it’s also fun to wear in public to brighten everyone’s day.
Dinosaur Egg Candle
One of the most exciting scenes in the entire Jurassic Park franchise was when the raptors were hatching in the original movie. Recreate this feeling at home with a dinosaur egg candle that reveals a hatchling within as it melts.
Faux Taxidermy Wall Mount
If hunters can put deer heads on the wall, there’s no reason why your Jurassic Park fan can’t display a faux dinosaur head or skull. Get a bone-white T-rex head, or make it extra glam with a gold coating.
Jurassic World Monopoly
A prehistoric twist on an old family favorite, Jurassic World Monopoly is a must-have game for fans. In this game, you buy and sell dinosaurs instead of property. Can you survive the journey?
No one will judge you for rooting for the bad guys. Get the person on your list an InGen branded mug, that will make them feel like a part of the dinosaur development team. If they’re not ready to be an antagonist, swap it out for a “tea rex” mug or stegosaurus shaped mug to pay homage to their favorite dino.
For the Jurassic Park superfan, there’s only one gift that will set them apart from everyone else: a lifesize velociraptor statue. If the neighbors can display lawn gnomes and concrete replicas of David, there’s no reason why your friend can’t have a raptor.
This fantastic gift looks amazing as the centerpiece of the yard or hidden in the bushes to surprise people as they walk through the garden.
The best part about a resurgence in the Jurassic Park franchise is that it makes for easy gift-giving. Any of these gifts will stand the test of time, just like the movie series.
