LEGO Christmas gift guide: the best gifts under £100

Christmas presents for LEGO lovers don’t need to break the bank; here are five LEGO gifts for under £100, including holiday favourites and retirees.

The holiday season always comes around faster than you think, so getting ahead on your Christmas shopping is smart. If you have a LEGO fan in your friends and family or you want to introduce someone to the wonderful world of LEGO, one of these sets could fit the bill perfectly.

Here’s a look at five of the best sets that you can gift to someone for less than £100.

5 – 10308 Holiday Main Street

Theme: LEGO Icons Price: £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 Pieces: 1,514 Available: Now

What says ‘Merry Christmas’ better than a festive scene? 10308 Holiday Main Street comes with two snow-topped buildings, complete with a Christmas tree and a tram ready to deliver a bundle of presents. At £89.99, it’s a reasonable price for a well-designed suit, populated by six minifigures.

While it’s a holiday-themed set, you could also put away the Christmas tree and remove some of the most festive decorations and display it all year round as a regular set. Plus, it’s the gift that keeps on giving, as it’s compatible with LEGO Powered Up (sold separately), meaning you can light up and power the buildable tram. You could follow up on this present with the Powered Up add-on, or split it with someone else in your family.

4 – 10289 Bird of Paradise

Theme: LEGO Icons Price: £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 Pieces: 1,173 Available: Now

The LEGO Botanical collection has proven to be a fast favourite, particularly for adult fans. For us, 10289 Bird of Paradise is the highlight of the collection, with a number of fantastic details that make this set stand apart from the rest. It is incredibly accurate to the real-life plant, with loose studs used to create the illusion of soil in the pot.

It’s the perfect gift for both long-term LEGO fans looking to add to an existing collection or as someone’s very first LEGO set. It’s easy to display, will look good anywhere in the home, and won’t dent your Christmas budget too much at £89.99.

3 – 75304 Darth Vader Helmet

Theme: Star Wars Price: £69.99 / $79.99 / €79.99 Pieces: 834 Available: Now

LEGO Star Wars 75304 Darth Vader Helmet

It’s no secret that the Brick Fanatics team is packed with Star Wars fans, so we just had to include a LEGO Star Wars set here. The Star Wars Helmet range make for excellent display sets, 75304 Darth Vader Helmet is an excellent addition. The original helmet lends itself well to a LEGO set, with its sharp angles and monochrome colour scheme, so the final product is authentic to the source material.

At £69.99, it comes complete with a display stand and sign, perfect for setting in pride of place around your home. Plus, you can start a new trend of gifting a new Star Wars helmet every Christmas – and who wouldn’t love that?

1 – 10271 Fiat 500

Theme: LEGO Icons Price: £69.99 / $89.99 / €79.99 Pieces: 960 Available: Now

LEGO Creator Expert 77942 Fiat 500 review 33

Another set that’s soon to retire, 10271 Fiat 500 is a faithful recreation of the iconic Italian city car. The brick-built version of the Fiat is ready to hit the road, with a stickered suitcase perched on the back. For extra flair when displayed it, you can also add a miniature easel with a tiny rendition of the car painted on the plastic canvas.

What’s more, you can tailor your gift to the individual by picking between 10271 and 77942 Fiat 500 Blue, depending on their favourite colour. 77942 is £15 more expensive and not retiring soon, however, so if you think you might end up wanting both, now might be a good time to stash 10271 in your basket.
