10 Awesome Tetris Gifts for Tetris Fans
A video game originally released in 1984, Tetris has left its vivid mark throughout its life span. This video game is still played by almost everyone and if you have a friend or family member who can’t get enough of it, it might be the right time to send them some awesome Tetris gifts. Classic games are so nostalgic. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to gift though, because we’ve got you covered in this gift guide article about gifts for Tetris lovers. Let’s get started!
Part 1 – Games and Puzzles
Tiny Arcade Tetris
Let’s face it. We are all attracted to tiny versions of anything. Gladly, Tiny Arcade has added Tetris to its line up of tiny arcade machines. And you won’t have enough of them. Its screen size is only 1.5 inches with a cabinet size of 3.75 x 1.75 x 1.75. In this minuscule size, you’ll be surprised to know that the manufacturers have included basically everything you can expect from a full-sized Tetris game: the complete classic game play, full color, high-resolution and back lit screen, speaker, joystick, and a control panel. Talking about its power source, it runs well on 3 AAA batteries. And as a matter of fact these batteries last long, considering the low power consumption of the machine. I’m sure whoever you gift it to will never take his or her hands off of it.
Basic Fun Arcade Classics – Tetris Edition
Another Tiny Tetris arcade, the Basic Fun Arcade Classics – Tetris is a little bigger than the previous one we talked about. However, bigger is not always better, mind you. There are some things to look for before buying this product. A fast recap of specs tells us that it has great graphics for a small screen, clear, audible and nostalgic music, and is powered by 3 AA batteries. One thing that stands out with this one is that its on/off and volume control buttons are to the front, flanked by speakers. Also, this game itself is way more retro than the other choices. While some customers are happy with purchasing this one, a few think otherwise. But no matter the shortcomings (it is the cheapest arcade game on this list afterall), you’ll have fun for sure.
Micro Arcade Tetris
If you think tiny arcades won’t work as a your awesome gift for Tetris lovers, we’ve instead got this Micro Arcade Tetris game. It is small, fits easily in your pocket and wallet, and charges like a phone – Goodbye all those pesky 3 AA batteries. The size of the product is 3.25 x 2 x 3.75 of an inch. At the same size of a credit card, it’s amazing how a gadget of this size could let you have gaming experience of a full-size arcade game. Thank the genius behind it. On top of that, customers cannot stop talking about its crystal clear display with bright colors. Of course, this is an official licensed Tetris product. Just be careful though, as the rotation buttons are swapped from the classic Gameboy version.

We don’t have to play the game to honor it. Thanks to Bitopbi, there are gifts for Tetris players out there that can be used around house and office alike. Take this 7 Piece Tetris 3D Lamp as an example. It looks great, works great, and gives you plenty of reasons to use it as your desk or night lamp. Here’s how it works: You connect the base piece with the light source and then stack the pieces together in any shape or formation you want. Once connected, the lamp turns on. Yes, it’s that simple.

Tetris Heat Changing Cermaic Coffee Mug
Tetris lovers love geeky and non-geeky gifts. What better gift could you get him or her than this Tetris Heat Changing Ceramic Coffee Mug? As the name implies, this mug is heat activated. This means as soon as you pour hot liquid in it, Tetris blocks will appear right before your eyes.

This mug is a great conversation starter in a coffee shop or around the office. Talking about the material of the cup, it is ceramic and will last a long time. Just be careful – the artwork is a little fragile. And the mug itself is not dish washer safe. But it still makes an awesome gift for any Tetris lover.
Tetris 18oz Water Bottle
After the cup, we present to you this Tetris 18 oz Water Bottle. Whoever you are going to gift this bottle to will likely always use it, and therefore, remember you. This is something inevitable with reusable gifts. The water bottle has a catchy Tetris inspired design and is high quality. It is super safe to use because it is BPA (bisphenol A) free. BPA is an unhealthy chemical (used in some other products!) and it disrupts the functions of our cells. The build quality of the bottle is also up to industry standard, as its made from durable Eastman Tritan plastic. This double walled water helps resist condensation, and, even boasts a spill proof lid with a straw. This water bottle is even dishwasher safe – making it one of the most convenient gifts for Tetris lovers.

A real stand out set. Both glasses are Tetris themed, but each have a slightly different Tetris design. They make perfect gifts for Tetris loving spouses, friends, or co-workers.
