Known as the ‘Caped Crusader,’ ‘the Dark Knight,’ and Bruce Wayne, kids and adults of all ages are familiar with Batman. Born from a DC Comic and originally appearing in print in 1939, Batman represents one of the most popular superheroes in the history of fictional crime-fighting. Whether you’re looking for a present for a comic book fan, an old school TV show enthusiast or movie buff, it might seem a bit overwhelming when shopping gifts for Batman fans. To get you started, we’d like to share some of our suggestions below:
Although yellow and black are the signature colors of Batman, it doesn’t mean art gifts depicting the masked crusader have to follow suit. As seen in the following pieces, you’ll find plenty of creative interpretations of the popular hero on Etsy – from mixed media illustrations and paintings printed directly on vintage dictionary pages (sold by MEOWconcept) to the watercolor art prints on archival paper (sold by SchioStudio360).
Handmade artisan jewelry for Batman lovers come in a range of shapes, sizes, colors, materials and styles. From wearing a bracelet with a bat accent to having the logo dangle from your neck, the endless creative ways that Etsy artisans celebrate Batman include the following:
- HardResols uses real circuit boards to create their Batman necklaces
- For the ultimate fan, consider Valeria Fine Jewelry’s Batman wedding rings made from silver, gold, platinum, or palladium – and featuring your choice of gemstones
- Silver Statements offers a best friend Batman/Joker ring set made of aluminum
- DoubleBJewelry sells affordable gold- and silver-plated Batman mask necklaces
