This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.
Buying presents for kids is easy, right? Any of the latest toys will do. Wouldn’t it be great if it remained that easy for adults, too? Actually, it turns out that there’s a whole world of toys for adults, and when you find the right one you’ll realize that the childlike love for toys never fades. While the price point may be a little higher than your classic toy car, the best toys for adults are just as simple and just as exciting.
We’ve put together a gift guide to put you on the right track because the wrong toys for adults can come across cheap and gimmicky. So, from electronics to basic collectible figurines, keep scrolling to browse the best adult toy gifts.
Shop the best toys for adults below.
Jean Michel Basquiat x Medicom BE@RBRICK
Don't call this one a toy. For BE@RBRICK collectors, these figures are serious business. A 1000% version of the little icon comes dressed in a Basquiat design for Medicom Toy's 2020 range.
Travis Scott Cactus Jack Fortnite 12" Action Figure Duo Set
While most artists took 2020 off as the year without concerts, Travis took his raging fans to Fortnite and dropped a range of merch to memorialize the occasion. This pair of figurines is a full-blown collector's piece now.
Chinatown Market Soccer Ball
Fitness can be fun, and this Chinatown Market smiley soccer ball gives us a much-needed reminder just in time for the post-holiday slump.
SONY PS5 Playstation 5 Blu-Ray Edition Console
We couldn't do a roundup of the best toys for adults and not include the Playstation 5. This console marks a new generation for gaming and, having sold out at pre-order, will be a monumental surprise for your dearest adult toy lover.
KAWS HOLIDAY Hong Kong Bath Toy
Like the BE@ARBRICK above, KAWS figures are among the most recognizable collector's items in the world, with rare items trading for thousands online.
Josh Divine x Strangecat Toys Astro Boy
Astroboy may be a child-favorite cartoon character, but Josh Divine & Strange Cat Toys' take on the hero is elevated and grown-up. Released in 2019, this collectible looks to an understated color palette to emphasize the movement in the sculpture.
Kith x BMW M3 E30 Diecast Replica
Kith's Ronnie Rieg recently unveiled one of the brand's most memorable collaborations and it wasn't in clothing form. He teamed up with BMW to design a BMW M30 E3 in unmissable red and, if you can't get the real one, this Diecast replica is the next best thing.
Urban Outfitters World’s Smallest UNO Card Game
Does anyone ever not want to play UNO? This miniature UNO set is a surefire test of that as it's easily carried literally everywhere so you'll never be caught without the world-famous card game.
UNDERCOVER x Medicom Gilapple Light Key Fob
While the full-size Gilapple toys from Undercover and Medicom might cost a bomb, this miniature key fob iteration makes a great, accessible accessory that doubles as a small flashlight.
