Being a huge fantasy fan myself, I know that fantasy readers can be a tricky group to get gifts for. For a start, fantasy is a huge genre. From Brandon Sanderson to Sarah J Maas to Percy Jackson. Also, fantasy readers can be a picky bunch to buy for. So here are a few recommendations to help you choose a good gift.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Told in Kvothe's own voice, this is the story of the magically gifted young man who becomes the most notorious wizard his world has ever seen. The intimate narrative of his childhood in a travelling acting troupe, the years he spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-ridden city, his daring but successful attempt to enter a legendary school of magic, and more.
It is one of the most interesting sagas of Fantasy books you can read and a very good gift for a family member or friend,
Born of the Mist by Brandon Sanderson
For a thousand years, the Lord Lawgiver, the "Fragmentation of Infinity", reigned with absolute power and supreme terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope had been lost for so long that not even his memory remained, a terribly scarred and heartbroken half-skaa rediscovered him in the depths of the Lord Lawgiver's most hellish prison. Kelsier "broke" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn.
Written by one of the best fantasy actors, this saga of books will leave the reader hooked, without a doubt, a very good gift for a fantasy lover.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Richard Mayhew is a simple man with a good heart and an ordinary life that changes forever the day he stops to help a girl he finds bleeding on a London pavement. From that moment on, he is thrust into a world he never dreamed existed: a dark subculture that flourishes in abandoned underground stations and sewer tunnels beneath the city, a world far stranger and more dangerous than the only one he has ever known...)
One of the first fantasy books I read and I was totally fascinated by it, without a doubt it would be a great gift for a fantasy lover.
