It was sad to watch Vikings end after six interesting seasons. Most people were not impressed by the ending, but then, everything that has a beginning has to end and that was it for the hit show. The end of the show doesn’t mean that you have to give up being a fan. Vikings branded items that you can use at home and have with you every day will make you feel like you are close to Kattegat, or better still, your favourite character in the show. From branded Vikings mugs to Ragnar Lothbrok’s cups, here are the top gift items to buy yourself or friends and family that love Vikings.
A Vikings Arm Ring
The arm ring is the most important possession on a Viking which is why the show started with Ragnar taking Bjorn to Kattegat to receive his arm ring from Jarl Haraldson. Since Kattegat is not an option, your own arm ring won’t be blessed by a Jarl but it will still be an awesome bracelet to wear around. It has a wolf head on one side to signify Odin’s powerful wolves Geri and Freki as well as raven and crow designs. It identifies perfectly with any Vikings fan and it is unisex so you can also buy it as a gift for any of your friends that want a little bit of throwback fashion.
A Viking Ale Horn
If there was one thing that Vikings knew how to do; It was how to throw a party. Everyone with their ale horn or mead cup talking and laughing in the great hall was the perfect way to end the day. It would be fun to recreate that at home with family and friends by putting more life into your evenings with an actual Viking ale horn. The tankard with a hardwood base is probably the most interesting addition you will have to your drink from. The handcrafter horn comes from an actual cow and the handle is wide enough for comfortable gripping.
Odin’s Wine Goblet
Alright, Odin didn’t exactly use it but sons and daughters of Odin are allowed to use it so you can go ahead and add this one to your collection. The goblet has a stainless-steel insert inside that can be removed for washing. The exterior is decorated with ancient Nordic symbols including the image of Odin and his crows as well as wolves. It has a 7oz capacity just like your regular wine glass but it can turn every toast into a Skol evening.
Viking Throw Blanket
In the winter, all Vikings come back to the great hall, light a fire and have a good time; that is called Netflix and chill nowadays. The best tool for Netflix and chilling especially in the winter is a throw blanket. For a fan of Vikings, having the Vikings symbols and the Viking compass imprinted on it is a perfect addition. It is a soft and thick 50 by 40-inch blanket suitable for using in bed or in the living room branded on one side.
Viking Wall Clock
Getting a perfect Viking wall decoration is not easy. The is always the option of buying Thor’s hammer because it stands out more and almost everyone will understand what it means. However, having a combination of your preferred quartz wall clock with Vegvisir decorations and traditional Vikings patterns brings more life to your house. It is a perfect welcome for any Vikings fan who will have found their way the moment they enter your house. The clock also makes a useful decoration that serves more purpose than just ending up in the bin after a few years. It is fluffy but very breathable and can be machine washed which make it easy to maintain and reuse all year long.
Viking Bath Rug
The bath rug is one of those simple items that most people forget when decorating the house. What would be a better welcoming message to your bathroom than a Viking rug? It is a 24 by 16 flannelette fabric rug with anti-skid dots. It can also be used in the laundry room or kitchen sink making it a multipurpose purchase for your house.
Odin’s MugOdin’s mug is also made by the same company that makes Odin’s wine goblet so the quality is not questionable. Like the goblet, the mug is decorated with the most identifiable Viking designs including the image of Odin as well as his two wolves and crows. It also has a removable stainless-steel interior that makes it easy to wash. The exterior including the handle are made using a high-quality resin with a deep coating to last. It is a 13oz mug suitable for all your general drinking needs at home.
5x7FT Vegvisir Large Area Floor Rug
When buying a rug for your living room or bedroom, you may not realize how much it will affect the mood in your house until you look at it two years down the line and realize that it doesn’t impress you anymore. That is why you need to buy a rug that you identify with and if you love ancient fashion or Vikings, then this one will be a great option. It doesn’t have anything strange, just the common Vegvisir Vikings patterns and comfortable durable fabric. The patterns also prevent early fading and allow it to blend in with the decorations in your home.
This one is especially good because of its low-key features. It is cool looking unisex hoodie with the crows of Odin and the Vegvisir printed on its wings as if guiding it to find the way. The rest of the tattoos and patterns are all Vikings related symbols that won’t be noticed by anyone unless they are a Vikings fan.
Skol Branded T-shirt
Skol was one of the most frequently used terms in the series and is still used in both Swedish Norwegian and Danish to mean cheers or good health. After getting your collection of Viking’s wine goblets, mugs and any other item you like, it would be good to top it up with a customized shirt. Nothing will say you love Vikings better than a cotton shirt with the words printed on the front. It sums up your love for the show in a simple word. It is the perfect gift for family and friends who loved the show. It is unisex and also comes in all sizes that can accommodate children as well as adults.
