Whether you’re a fan of the books and the movies, or you’ve been anticipating the TV show since the announcement back in early 2020, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings has remained one of the most incredible fantasy/adventure stories of the last century. It has paved the way for so many other incredible stories, and now it’s getting new life with Amazon Prime’s TV series, premiering September 2nd. To celebrate, we figured why not put together a list of fun Lord of the Rings Must Haves that might have you coveting each item the way Gollum covets the One Ring.

  • 1) The Lord of the Rings Illustrated Edition

    If you’ve never sat down to read the story, I highly recommend it! The books are wonderful, and this special Illustrated edition makes the story much more beautiful. This special edition features thirty-color illustrations, maps, and sketches drawn by Tolkien himself. It’s a beautiful look into the mind of one of the most incredible fantasy writers in history!

    If you’re a serious fan of the films or books, you will instantly recognize the name on this keychain! The Prancing Pony is one of the taverns the hobbits visit in The Fellowship of the Ring. I love this keychain so much. I’ve had it for a few months now and I feel like every LOTR fan will absolutely love having it on their keys.

  • 5) Speak Friend and Enter Doormat

    This is the beginning of one of my favorite moments from the 2001 film where the Fellowship are attempting to enter the mines of Moria. And let’s face it, having a cool doormat like this will not only show you who your fellow LOTR fans are, but will also be a super unique way to decorate your house.

  • 7) Heat Changing Lord of the Rings Coffee Mug

    Heat-changing mugs are so fascinating to me. This one is especially cool because it starts off featuring the words written on the One Ring, and heats up to reveal a map of Middle Earth. I could easily see myself using this for coffee every morning or even just adding it to my collection of cool mugs.

  • 8) Taters Po-Ta-Toes Tee

    Now a classic meme, this shirt featuring of my favorite Samwise Gamgee scenes. Seriously this shirt was an instant cart add for me, and I can’t wait to see all the people who read the shirt and immediately hear Sean Astin’s voice saying it from the film.

  • 9) Hobbit Shot Glasses

    I love a fun shot glass set! This one is especially fun because it features each of the Hobbits in the Fellowship, and each shot glass is designed to look like their clothing from the 2001 film. Can’t go wrong with a cool find like this one.

  • 11) Mordor Tee

    Of course, if you’re a LOTR fan you know what Mordor is. So we absolutely had to include this item featuring The Eye of Sauron since the new show is supposed to be featuring a lot more of Sauron. This shirt is available in sizes Small through 5XL.

  • 12) Middle Earth Destination Posters

    If you’re looking for a cool piece of décor for your house that’s a touch subtle, how about these? These posters feature many of the prominent places in Middle Earth that members of the Fellowship visit along their travels. My favorite might be the Rivendell one, but second only to the Argonath.

    Last, but certainly not least, we had to include this handmade Hobbit door coffee mug. This door is a staple image among the LOTR fanbase.

Each mug is a large high-quality 21-ounce Gibson Elite Stoneware mug hand-decorated with polymer clay and protected with a slightly glossy varnish. Be sure to read the instructions for washing!
