The Most Incredible Hulk Gift Guide

If you happen to know a scientist whose cells were contaminated by gamma rays and now turns into a green, imposing monster when someone touches a nerve, look no further. These Hulk fan gifts will surely make them feel less alone. One of the most iconic characters in the Marvel Universe, The Hulk is relatable both to children who periodically hulk out when they feel adult-sized emotions, as well as adults who want to act like children once in a while.

These gifts are all great ways to show a little bit of love for the man in green and the Hulk fan in your life (even if that fan is you). And whatever you do, don't make them angry.

10 The Incredible Hulk: Planet Hulk Comic Collection

planet hulk vs silver surfer

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON COMIXOLOGY

This comic book collection includes Incredible Hulk Vol. 2 #92-105, as well as stories from Amazing Fantasy Vol. 2 #15, Giant-Size Hulk Vol. 2 #1, and the Planet Hulk Gladiator Guidebook. Included content ran from 1999-2007. The included Planet Hulk content features a storyline where The Illuminati decide to expel Hulk from Earth. Hulk conquers and gets to know the planet Sakaar that he landed on, all the while planning a return to Earth.

These comics follow Hulk as he struggles with his distaste for Bruce Banner, his weak, gentle alter-ego, and his own uncontrollable rage. Considered by many to fall under the 'anti-hero' category, Hulk is a misunderstood, emotional character. This is a great collection to give to a Hulk fan or anyone who enjoys comic books. The variety in the collection allows for something to be included that they haven't seen before, even if they're a big fan.

9 Bruce Banner Funko POP! With Hulk Head

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

This Funko POP! is from the Avengers Infinity War series from the 2018 film. The implied movement in the figure is what makes it unique, with Bruce's head slowly turning green from the bottom and his hands in the process of becoming green as well.

He is in a moment of extreme anger - different expressions and emotions on the figures can really make a collection interesting, and not many Funko POP! faces show rage or anger. The figure stands 3 3/4 inches tall and is an affordable way to give a fan something unique and fun that they can display anywhere. Fans of all ages and collectors alike will love this little Bruce.

8 Upper Deck Legendary DBG: World War Hulk Expansion

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

In deck building games, construction of a card deck is the main focus of the gameplay, with each player holding their own deck. It's the type of game that collectors love, as the art and features on the cards are some of the most interesting parts of the game.

Legendary is a deck-building game based on the Marvel universe, and this expansion pack adds new Hulk content, pulled from Planet Hulk and World War Hulk. This pack is also cohesive enough to be played on its own if the person you're buying for doesn't have Legendary - but it's best as an expansion to add to the universe displayed by the original game.

7 The Incredible Hulk Film

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

In this 2008 film starring Edward Norton as Hulk, the U.S. military wants to create super-soldiers using the gamma ray radiation that gave Bruce Banner his condition. Once again, he is focused on trying to cure himself of his greenish condition, this time before he's caught by the military and used for their experimental mission.

This film offers a lot of action and an amazing portrayal of Bruce Banner by Norton. If a fan doesn't own this yet, they should. The comic book artwork of Dale Keown was chosen as inspiration for the design of Hulk as he appears in this film - Keown drew covers for 90s and 2000s editions of the comic books.

6 Kotobukiya Marvel Comics ArtFX+ Hulk Statue

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Kotobukiya is known for making exceptional pieces that are priced reasonably enough for collectors and casual fans alike. For any fans of The Avengers or the Hulk, this statue from their ArtFX+ collection would look perfect on any Hulk or straight up Marvel fan's shelf.

Standing nearly 10" high, this highly detailed collectible features the Green Goliath's famous muscles as designed by renowned Marvel artist Adi Granov, and crafted so it can stand beside the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

5 Immortal Hulk Volume 1: Or is he Both?

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON COMIXOLOGY

This book includes Immortal Hulk 1-5 and material from Avengers: No Surrender 684. This is an important comic book for a collector or a big fan because the genre is switched up a little bit from what one would normally expect in recent issues. Rather than following traditional superhero tropes and stylistic choices, this appearance of Hulk falls within more of a horror genre.

Hulk exhibits wickedness and Bruce learns of Hulk's immortality in contrast to his own fragility, causing him to be threatened and haunted by Hulk's desire to get rid of him. Cover art is by Alex Ross and the comics are written by Al Ewing. Hulk appears as an apparent villain and the horror feel is more in line with earlier depictions of the green guy.

4 Hulk Jumbo Hand Mug

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Officially licensed by Marvel, this mug has a huge, oversized fist nearly crushing your morning cup of coffee. It's a great gift for a fan who has a sense of humor and likes to proudly display their fandom in interesting ways.

The mug holds about 22 oz. and is purple beneath Hulk's green skin. It's painted ceramic and from the right angles, when the handle is gripped it looks like the green hand is protruding from the user's own arm. This is definitely a novelty gift, as it's not the most practical thing to have a green fist wrapped around your tea - it's meant to be a fun and silly way to show love for a friend or yourself.

3 Hulk Candy Bowl Holder

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

Great for Halloween or all year round, this candy bowl holder will blend right into any Hulk fan's living room, storing green M&Ms while they watch The Incredible Hulk reruns. It also acts as a great spot to store keys or spare change, maybe left out by the front door to protect a home from Thaddeus.

This is created out of heavy-duty foam, with a hollow back, designed to stand flush against a wall. The figure can hold objects other than candy bowls but will cradle most bowls that you have. This little guy is officially licensed and stands about 10" square at the base and 18" tall.

2 Hulk Smash Hands

SEE THE PRICE AMAZON

For anyone from age 2 to 200, these oversized gloves can be easily slipped on in a moment of joy or rage. The detailed, green fists are made of stuffed polyester and have handles on the interior for grip. They are one-size-fits-all because you just hold the handle and the plush surrounds your hands, so these work for children or adults.

The gloves are soft and safe to play around with, avoiding broken bones or destroyed science labs. These are detailed enough (with fingernails and popping veins) to use in a costume. Mostly they're an excellent toy and a great idea for an office gift that is a twist on a stress ball.

1 The Incredible Hulk: The Complete Series

Hulk Lou Ferrigno

SEE THE PRICE BEST BUY

This set contains all 82 episodes from seasons 1-5 of the original TV show, based on the comic books of the '60s and '70s. As a piece of Hulk history, this show is full of interesting details that give a fan a broader perspective on the character and his storylines. An interesting tidbit is that Bruce appears as David Bruce Banner, referred to by the name of David in this series.

The Hulk is portrayed by Bill Bixby, with all the bells and whistles of CGI and modern effects missing, in a good way. It's a lot of fun to watch Banner transform into the Hulk with less technology to assist the filming. This is a must-have for a fan who remembers the show or a younger fan who will eagerly devour this key part of Hulk history.
