Father’s Day is rapidly approaching here in the UK (and in several other places around the world) so we asked the Father of Fanattik himself, Anthony Marks, what his top 5 gift picks were for 2023. Here’s what he said!
This has to be my top pick as I’m a massive Star Wars fan. I’ve been to so many Star Wars conventions, including Star Wars Celebration Europe this year, and always have my photo taken in front of this prop whenever I see it. The opportunity to replicate this iconic piece of movie history was amazing so it’s definitely one to put on display.
There are only 5,000 of these available worldwide so it’ll make any Back to the Future fan feel special. I love the trilogy and was at the premiere of Back to the Future: The Musical just before Covid hit. The fact that this show bounced back after the pandemic to open in London in 2021 just goes to show how popular Back to the Future remains almost 40 years after it first hit the big screen.
This Jurassic June it's the 30th anniversary of Jurassic Park and this tin sign is the perfect addition to our gallery wall here at Fanattik HQ. Jurassic Park is close to my heart as it’s the first film we ever created in-universe gifts & collectibles for. We even hired The Rex cinema (appropriate huh?!) for our own 15th anniversary celebrations last year to watch Jurassic World Dominion.
Never has an in-universe gift been more appropriate! The book was a childhood favourite that I’ve since enjoyed with my children so this collectible really evokes a sense of nostalgia for me. I’ve obviously watched the 1971 and 2005 film and can’t wait for a family outing to see Wonka when it’s released at the end of this year.
I know you’ll be thinking this is a video game, not a film so what’s it doing in this list of gifts for film fans? Loophole alert! Resident Evil: Death Island is released this summer as a sequel to Resident Evil: Vendetta and no Father’s Day gift guide would be complete (in my opinion) without a replica S.T.A.R.S. police badge that doubles as a magnetic bottle opener
If films aren’t for them and you’re looking for gifts for a gamer this Father’s Day, take a look at our latest offers here (from now until the end of June 2023).
