When Scott Cawthon first established the foundations for Five Nights at Freddy's back in 2014, chances are even the visionary himself didn't expect to see mugs, t-shirts, and plushies of ol' Fazbear and friends hit the shelves. Little did Cawthon know, of course, that just shy of a decade later, the survival-horror anthology would go on to become one of the most popular sagas of its kind. And those promotional t-shirts and gifts? Well, let's just say that the franchise has evolved quite a bit since its debut.
Anyway, if you are a bit of a die-hard FNaF fan, then you'll no doubt be hunting for that next ultimate gift idea. If that's the case, then be sure to read on, as we'll be going through all of the best Five Nights at Freddy's gifts on the current market. Need we say more? Here's what you should be keeping an eye out for the next time you're in need of a Fazbear-themed trinket.
9. Five Nights at Freddy's: Fazbear Frights
If you're an avid reader, then you'll no doubt have already gazed upon Scott Cawthon's canonical anthology of Five Nights at Freddy's novellas. If not, then perhaps now's the chance to grab the entire twelve-piece collection as part of your next FNaF haul? As it stands, the latest box set, which was released on April 19, 2022, is the most up-to-date collection on the market, with a total of 34 stories compressed into just 11 books. It even includes a twelfth book, which includes some of Cawthon's unreleased tales. You can get your copy of Five Nights at Freddy's: Fazbear Frights here.
8. Five Nights at Freddy's: Night of Fright
Yes, there is in fact a board game, too. And not just the one board game, but several board games, all of which pay tribute to the series' earliest video games and their respective lore. But if you're looking for one of the most up-to-date editions, then you'll want to get your hands on Night of Fright, a two-to-four-player game that casts you and your friends as the iconic animatronics as they work to reach the security room and scare the living daylights out of poor ol' Mike Schmidt. You can get your copy here.
7. Five Nights at Freddy's Cookbook
And yes, there's also a cookbook. And not just any old cookbook, but one that just so happens to include over 40 unique recipes inspired by each of the several video games. So, if you're a fan of fast food, then you'll definitely want to whip up a few of these wacky creations as made famous by Fazbear and friends. Chica's Ultimate Thai Chicken Burger? Check. Foxy's Fruity Cove Cooler? Check. El Chip's Fully Loaded Tortillas? Check, check, and check. Tempted? You can get your copy either on Kindle or as a hardback book here.
6. Plush Toys
If there's one thing the shelves aren't short of, it's Five Nights at Freddy's plush toys. In fact, there are so many of each animatronic, that you could pretty much fill out an entire pizzeria with the things — and then some. And so, if you're on the hunt for any particular character, then rest assured that most media outlets that feature a video game department will likely stock one. For what it's worth, though, we'd strongly suggest getting your hands on the Sundrop/Moondrop reversible plush. You can get your hands on that and a whole bunch of other plushies here.
5. Blankets & Comforters
If you're the type to cower behind a blanket or makeshift pillow fort when trucking through any of the Five Nights at Freddy's chapters, then you'll no doubt find a FNaF-themed blanket quite useful. And in case you had a sudden burst of déjà vu — the screenshot is from Five Nights at Freddy's: Custom Night. If that's to your liking, then you can go ahead and add one to your basket here.
4. Five Nights at Freddy's: Survival Logbook
If you're relatively new to the series, then there's no doubt about it — the Five Nights at Freddy's: Survival Logbook is hands down one of the best early companions you can have in your arsenal. Why? Well, because it not only provides you with quizzes and interactive content, but pages stacked upon pages of lore and well-kept secrets. It's 112 pages in length, and boasts some of the best written content in all of the Freddy Fazbear world. Now, if that piques your interest, then you'll definitely want to grab a copy here.
3. Five Nights at Freddy's Official Character Encyclopedia
Although there are numerous pieces of literature based on Five Nights at Freddy's that you can get your hands on, no other book goes into anywhere near as much detail as this 200-page encyclopedia. With in-depth passages on every character and their countless personas, this mammoth of a book serves as the ultimate all-in-one gift for any avid reader or lore-seeking buff. You can your hands on either a Kindle copy or a hardcover book here.
2. Funko Mystery Box
For those who enjoy the art of collecting popular video game memorabilia, this Funko Mystery Box will surely satisfy your cravings. For just shy of $40, you can get your hands on a box made up of at least one Funko vinyl, a plush toy, a keychain, and a selection of additional stationary items—all inspired by Scott Cawthon's critically acclaimed saga. You can grab a mystery box for yourself here.
1. Five Nights at Freddy's: Survive ‘Til 6am
Another board game that's worth pondering over is Five Nights at Freddy's: Survive ‘Til 6am, a one-to-two-player game that features a premise identical to the one seen in the very first chapter. As Mike Schmidt, you will need to conserve your energy as you take turns to check security cameras for Freddy Fazbear and the other roaming animatronics. Its goal, much like the video game, is simple: survive until dawn. Care to try your luck? You can pick up a copy of the game for yourself here.
