50 gifts from Middle-earth and beyond for the ultimate Tolkien fan

This holiday season happens to coincide with a very special event for Middle-earth fans: the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first film in a new trilogy from director Peter Jackson starring characters and lands created by J.R.R. Tolkien, arguably the greatest fantasy author of all time.

Tolkien's work is special not just because his work has translated so well to film, but because modern fantasy literature simply wouldn't be the same without him. He's an essential figure not just in fantasy literature, but in modern literary history as a whole, so it's no surprise that he's still got a massive fan base.

Since this is an especially Tolkien-driven holiday season, we thought it only right to assemble a Tolkien gift guide, but not just any Tolkien gift guide. This is a guide for the ultimate Tolkien fan, featuring everything from very small tokens of fandom to uber-expensive collectors' items that almost no one else has. If you've got a Tolkien fan in your life and you need a great gift, this is the place to be.
