Top 5 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Anime Lovers


Welcome to GetMojo, where we do the research so you don’t have to! In this video, we’re offering our picks for the 5 best Valentine’s Day gifts for Anime Lovers.

Anime is huge! What was once a subculture predominantly adored just by those in Japan, has become a powerhouse of awe-inspiring movies, TV shows, comics and video games all around the world. So, do you know an anime fan you’d like to treat on Valentine’s Day? (Maybe even yourself?) Well, if you do, then don’t go anywhere. To give you some Valentine’s Day ideas, we’ve sifted through numerous gift guides to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.

The Plush Option

Pokémon Pikachu Plush


For many, Pokémon will have been their first love in the anime world. So, if you have a partner who loves everything Pocket Monsters, this adorable Pikachu plush should be just the thing. This plush stuffie can be seen holding a heart-shaped Poké Ball and boasting Pika’s iconic, loveable smile. Standing at 8-inches tall, it’s a perfect size to take anywhere with you - and hopefully its cute appeal will add a bit of electricity to your relationship.

The Movie Night Pick

“Your Name” Blu-Ray


Nothing says romance like a night at the movies - or better yet, a movie night at home. And our movie of choice would be “Your Name” from director Makoto Shinkai - one of the best and most iconic anime flicks of recent years. “Your Name” follows a boy and girl who switch bodies and set out on a journey to find each other. This tale of discovery and togetherness is as entertaining as it is heart-warming, so be sure to have a hand to hold come the ending.

For the Candy Lover

Japanese Candy Ninja 37 Japanese Candy and Snack Okashi Set


The wide variety of cool and quirky Japanese confectionery is a huge part of anime fandom, and this haul of treats from Japanese Candy Ninja gives fans the chance to test out a ton of popular flavours. This box contains 37 different items, including some of Japan’s popular DIY-style sweets, as well as things like a Japanese original flavour Kit Kat. This is a great example of a gift you and your partner can both share, perhaps over a movie night!

For the Fellow Ghibli Aficionado

KONY Cartoon Japanese Animation Crew Socks


Another anime movie-related pick next, paying homage to some of the legendary movies from Studio Ghibli. This pack of four women’s socks includes iconography from the likes of “Spirited Away”, “My Neighbor Totoro” and “Kiki's Delivery Service”. And with four pairs, you can share them between you and your partner. We know, socks for Valentine’s Day might sound a little unusual, but for fans of the aforementioned movies and their imagery, they will certainly be a hit.

Before we reveal our final pick, here are a few other great products that you might want to consider:

Brand88 T-Shirt


Superfight Anime Deck


The Otaku Encyclopedia


The Couples Necklace

PJ Yin Yang Pet Cat Puzzle Piece Matching Couple Pendant Necklace


Cats are another iconic symbol of both Japanese culture and anime - and this pendant necklace allows you and your partner to be united at all times. This affectionate set will serve as a reminder that you complete one another, and that your relationship is about give and take, compromise and duality. Plus, come on, how cute do they look, seriously!

So which Valentine’s Day gift should you choose? Well, some people absolutely love small trinkets and plush toys, so something like the Pikachu plush or pendant set will probably go over super well. However, if you’re buying for someone who would prefer a gift that allows you to spend a little more time together, well, a great movie to watch while sharing some awesome snacks sounds good to us!
