There are numerous ways to expand this game, and the one Flash fans might be excited about is a Crossover Pack featuring the Justice Society of America.

One of the famous members of the Justice Society is Jay Garrick, otherwise known as the first Flash. This pack adds many of those older characters to the game. Considering the Justice Society has been a big part of the Arrowverse, fans of the Flash are bound to recognize these characters.

How long has the Flash been around? As of 2015, he has been around for 75 years. That's a lot of history to get caught up on for new fans. Thankfully, DC has them covered with The Flash: A Celebration of 75 Years. This book is essentially a massive sizzle reel for the Scarlet Speedster's best moments since his creation.

Readers will get to see his origins in the comics as well as look at different versions, including Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, and Wally West. It gives fans everything they would need to know about Flash, which makes it a great gift for them.

8 THE FLASH: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON

The Flash is one of the current Arrowverse shows on the CW. Fans of the character are probably heavy into this show, and perhaps even own many of the previous seasons that released. The fourth season of The Flash has been out for a while and contains Barry Allen's struggle against Clifford Devoe, otherwise known as the Thinker.

The season deals with conflicts that were established in the third season and includes the Crisis on Earth X crossover with the other Arrowverse shows. This season is also not very expensive as far as Blu-Ray TV shows are concerned, so jump on this one.

7 DIAMOND SELECT TOYS THE FLASH STATUE (JUSTICE LEAGUE)

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

While Justice League is far from the best movie the DCEU has to offer, there were still plenty of people who appreciated The Flash. After all, that was the Scarlet Speedster's live-action blockbuster debut, and Ezra Miller did a fairly good job. For those that like the Flash (especially Ezra Miller's Flash), Diamond Select Toys has a statue based on the Justice League version of the character.

The statue features the Flash in a running pose with blue lightning around him. As a base, there is a defeated Parademon to add a bit more context. It's a great-looking statue through and through.

6 DIAMOND SELECT TOYS THE FLASH STATUE (ARROWVERSE)

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

There are multiple versions of the Flash in live-action, and the more popular of the two has to be the one seen in the Arrowverse. Grant Gustin's Flash has been around a few years and has sped his way into the hearts of fans everywhere. Luckily, for those who prefer that version, Diamond Select Toys has a statue of him.

It features the suit seen in the show as well as a face that closely resembles Grant Gustin's. Yellow lightning is present around the statue, and the stand looks to be from elements seen in the show's interpretation of Gorilla City.

5 FLASH RETRO PLAYING CARDS

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

A deck of playing cards is multiple games waiting to happen. Just about everyone knows a game or two they can easily play with the right amount of cards. For the Flash fans who know their way around card games, then the retro Flash playing cards would be a great gift for them.

The deck is a standard affair, having all the right numbers and faces. The difference is that the cards are orange, feature a retro Flash logo on the back, and sports artwork of the character and comic book covers on the front. Even if this deck is not used, it makes for a great collectible.

4 CENTRAL CITY RUNNING CLUB T-SHIRT

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Central City is the location known for having the Flash as its protector. It is the major location that the show is based on and has a lot of significance in the comics, having iconic buildings like the Flash Museum. For those that want to show off their Flash love, then this shirt is the way to go.

Featuring a Flash logo in the center, it reads "Central City Running Club", in reference to the speedsters that came from there. It also has "EST 1940" at the bottom which is a reference to when the Flash first started appearing in comics. It only comes in dark red, though, so keep that in mind.

3 THE FLASH SOCKS

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Superhero socks are all the rage for superhero fans. There are numerous socks that have designs of all sorts of characters, whether they be from the Marvel or DC Universes. Naturally, Flash socks were only a matter of time.

What makes this pair a great gift for fans of the Scarlet Speedster is that more than one character is represented. This set comes with one pair featuring the Flash and another featuring the color and logo of the Reverse Flash. Having representation of the Flash's greatest rival is always a nice touch, regardless of the fact that yellow socks don't go with many outfits.

2 JAY GARRICK FUNKO POP!

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

There are plenty of Funko Pop! figures featuring the Barry Allen version of the Flash. A big fan of the Scarlet Speedster probably has at least one in their collection. That's why this Jay Garrick Funko Pop! is sure to be a fantastic gift.

The design is based on the character's appearance in The Flash TV show. That said, the costume is so closely derivative of the comic version that it could function as either. Jay Garrick is such an iconic character with his winged hat that this figure is a must-have. It's also the second time that John Wesley Shipp played the Flash.

1 POP HEROES!: CHROME FLASH 3-PACK

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Justice League got its own set of Funko Pop! figures just like any other big-budget film. However, the set that might interest Flash fans the most is this 3-pack. Each figure is based on the Flash's appearance in the movie, but they each feature a different color of chrome.

There is a yellow, red, and silver one (which could be references to the Flash's different costumes in the comics). They look visually distinct from most Funko Pop! figures. Furthermore, they're bound to be a nice collectible item that's only going up in price as time goes on. Better act now while you still can.
