Viking culture has been surging in popularity in recent years, so it’s no wonder Viking gifts are also on the rise.
Just take a look at modern popular culture. We see Norsemen in television, like History Channel’s Vikings, and even in Marvel’s universe with the TV series Loki and the Thor film series (Love and Thunder expecting to premiere in 2022).
While some of these films and TV shows perpetuate common misconceptions about the Viking culture, there’s no denying that many people can’t resist the appeal of these seafarers.
That’s why I’ve “raided” 29 gifts for the Viking enthusiast in your life – so you don’t have to!
9 Norse Viking Gift Ideas
1. Bone Comb with Viking Longship Design
Vikings were known to have a nomadic lifestyle, so they had to use every bit of resource available to them to make things like this comb made of bone.
This handcrafted ox bone comb features a drakkar longship design and is perfect to use with beard oils, waxes, or pomades to define that sweet Viking beard.
2. Horn Shotglass with Wooden Display Stand
Here a set of ox horn shot glasses that are made from genuine ox horns. It includes five shot glasses, perfect for when the boys come over, and a wooden rustic glass holder.
The wooden display tray also features some runes, which enhances the medieval Viking atmosphere and, more importantly, grants the drinkers with blessings from the Gods.
3. Blanket with Viking Prayer
Get your giftee this 72 x 54 inch blanket with a Norse prayer woven within. While your giftee may not worship Norse Gods, the blanket’s design, which features Yggdrasil, the Norse Tree of Life, will clearly enhance the Viking motif in their home.
4. Axe Bracelet
The axe was the weapon of choice by most Vikings in the Middle Age because it was affordable and very useful in making their longships. An axe often reminds us of violence, but this humble weapon symbolizes hard work and fearlessness.
Here’s a braided bracelet with an axe pendant, which is a perfect gift for the courageous and diligent Viking enthusiast in your life.
5. Vegvisir Rune T-Shirt
Vegvisir is an Icelandic runic symbol that means “that which shows the way” and is often carried by those who travel through rough weather.
Anyone who loves Norse myth and travels a lot will appreciate this t-shirt with a vegvisir symbol that will ensure their safe travels.
6. Water Bottle Designed as Thor’s Hammer
Keep the Norseman and Marvel fan in your life hydrated with this Mjolnir water bottle that’s fashioned after Thor’s hammer.
It can contain almost 1.7L of liquid, making it a great water bottle for those who love camping, hiking, or just about any type of outdoor activity.
7. Viking Trinket Box
Here’s a gift for the woman who has “pillaged” pieces of jewelry throughout the years. This trinket is made of crushed stone mixed with high-quality resin, giving it an antique feel that your recipient craves.

8. Odin Bronze Statue
Those who enjoy reading about Norse mythology can finally display the All-Father himself, Odin.
Whether it’s placed in a collection room or the living room, the intricate design of this resin statue with a bronze finish will undoubtedly catch the eye of any visitor.
9. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
Those looking to get a comprehensive introduction to Norse mythology shouldn’t miss the chance to read this book. It’s a good starting point for learners, as the book recounts the origins of the gods that the Vikings respected and their impending doomsday, Ragnarok.
Allow your favorite Viking to experience the halls of Valhalla and the vast nine realms through the imaginative storytelling of Neil Gaiman.

According to Norse myth, Ragnarok is a series of tragic events that entails the death of gods, such as Odin, Thor, Loki, and many more, but the aftermath of which is supposed to bring some kind of prosperity.

16. Valhalla Coffee
Viking admirers who love a good coffee brew in the morning should explore this Valhalla Java arabica. Indonesian coffee beans are considered to be one of the best in the world, having low acidity and a rich earthy flavor.
