Get ready to check out the best Sega gifts of all time, the only Sega present buying list you’re ever going to need!
We know what it’s like when you have to buy for someone and have no idea what kind of thing they like. Some of you might not even know what Sega even is, or why this blue hedgehog you keep seeing on your partner’s phone is so special.
Fear not, for we have the very best Sega gifts available today for you to buy the gaming fan in your life. Buy with confidence and zero stress, the way all presents should be bought!
First up on our list of the best Sega gifts is this slick Sonic The Hedgehog Fleece Hoodie.
Before you get too excited, this is only for kids. I’m afraid if you’re an adult Sega fan, then you’re going to have to wait till a little further down to find something you can put on.
Still, Sonic is for players of all ages, and it’s great to your get your little ones into the classics at an early age.
With raglan sleeves and a comfy hood, this fleece hoodie is the perfect present for kicking back in while gaming or for wearing once the weather turns cold.
It might even make you run faster, though that bit isn’t in the official listing on Amazon.
Speaking of the classics, this collection of over 50 Sega Genesis Classics is available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
There’s a great selection, with some epic single player and multiplayer bangers such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star, and many more.
And, there’s online multiplayer options too!
Unlike the Genesis/Mega Drive of old, this collection allows you to save whenever you like too without having to lose all of your progress.
I once stayed up all night playing Sonic the Hedgehog just so I could keep my place… then the power went out.
If you want to have all the nostalgic feels of the Sega Genesis including the controller and the console itself, then this Sega Genesis Mini is the perfect gift.
The controllers are the same size as the original pads, but the console itself is much smaller and fits in one hand.
All of the games are pre-installed, so there’s no need for buying tonnes of old cartridges on second-hand sites.
The best bit of it all – it connects to your TV via HDMI for a crystal clear picture. Save your files whenever you want and use the same style knobs and buttons to turn the console on.
Play ComixZone, Sonic Spinball, Alex Kidd, Golden Axe, Castle of Illusion, and tonnes more amazing Sega games, all in one place!
I think ‘encyclopaedia-speed-ia’ could be the best play on words I’ve ever read. Yes, this Sonic the Hedgehog Encyclo-speed-ia (Deluxe Edition) is an amazing Sega gift for anyone who’s mad about the blue peril.
Not only that, but it’s an important slice of Sega’s history and a means of keeping their legacy alive for newer generations.
It’s also a cool book with lots of pics of Sonic in it, if that’s mainly what you came here to find.
Curated by comic book legend Ian Flynn, this book covers 30 years of Sonic.
Buy it for a die-hard fan or someone who loves the new Sonic the Hedgehog movies; the perfect present for Sega nerds!
Sega don’t just make games and consoles, you know. This Sega Toys Homestar Flux brings the beauty of the universe to you bedroom or living room.
I’m not just talking about a few stars or fake-looking planets either. This little device projects a whopping 60,000 stars around your room.
Play around with glass lenses for incredible projection. And with 30 optional star discs to add into the equation, you can change your galaxy-scene up as often as you want!
Next up on this list of the best Sega gifts is Alex Kidd In Miracle World DX, a remastered version of the classic Master System game.
We’re talking crisp visuals, remastered music, and better boss fights at the end of each stage.
There are even new levels too. Brand new Alex Kidd stages… what’s not to love!
If you prefer, however, you can just play the retro-mode and see the game as it was originally meant to be.
Plus, who doesn’t want to relive the tension of those Rock, Paper, Scissors battles again. There’s no thrill like it!
If you’re a regular Retro Dodo reader, then you’ll probably have seen the TUBBZ rubber duck that Numskull made Brandon. They’ve featured in lots of our gifts list so far, but this TUBBZ Knuckles Rubber Duck could well be mu favourite.
Sorry, Brandon, but Knuckles is a legend, after all.
Shipping in a protective case that looks like a bathtub, this TUBBZ cosplay duck is a great gift for old-school Sega fans.
Place it on your shelf or throw it in your bath along with Robotnik, Sonic, and Tails.
Instead of the Green Hill Zone, you could have the Foam Zone or Hot Water Falls.
Man… I need to get out more.
Have you ever wanted to just climb inside your Genesis and immerse yourself in its brilliance? If you’ve ever had that niche, slightly odd thought, then this Sega Genesis Throw Blanket will be right up your street.
This blanket is made from a silky polyester fabric and measures 60’x45′. I cant think of a better way to get comfy while playing Sega games on the Genesis Mini or via the Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
Lay it on a bed, place it on your games chair, or throw it over the back of the sofa. Heck, you could even use it as a rug or hang it from your wall.
Whatever you want to do with it, it’s bound to make you and any room warmer while displaying your love for Sega’s iconic console.
If you know someone who is a fan of Hatsune Miku, then this next item on our list of the best Sega gifts is guaranteed to put a smile on their face.
These rhythm based games are extremely popular, and the main character has even released albums too.
Just in case you’re wondering what this is all about, Hatsune Miku features a computer-generated singer and was one of the first vocalic softwares to achieve success.
The world is a mad place now…
This figureine has three expressions and can be moved into different positions. It even comes with a cool base stand too.
As classic Sega gifts go, these next two could be two of my favourites. First up is this Streets Of Rage Shadow Box, captureing a classic street-brawl scene from Streets of Rage, perfectly frozen in time.
This officially licensed piece depicts some of the key characters from the game about to square off against each other. Featuring multiple layers, it almost looks as though they’re about to dive right into battle at any moment.
This gift is very cleverly created and manages to capture all the excitement and tension of the game perfectly. It’s a great addition for any games room or just in on the wall in your living room.
Or the toilet if your partner isn’t keen on having your nerd stuff out on show.
I’ve recently got into vinyl in a big way, and this Comix Zone Vinyl is high up on my wish list. I mean, just take a look at that coloured LP popping out of the cardboard sleeve there!
That’s going to look amazing spinning around my vinyl player come Christmas Day!
Complete with amazing cover artwork featuring Sketch in his struggle to break free from his own comic book, this vinyl featuring all the epic tunes from the game is a must-have gift for every Comix Zone fan.
Play it while playing the game on the Genesis Mini after wrapping yourself in the Genesis blanket. Sounds like the perfect Sunday morning to me!
The Sega Astro City Mini Console recreates all the action of the Astro City arcade cabinet and squashed it into a table-top console.
That’s a lot of fun and power in a tiny little cabinet!
If you know your Sega history, then you’ll already know that the Astro City cabinet was one of Sega’s greatest achievements. And now, you can play some of the games that only appeared in arcades in your living room!
We’re talking about playing Dark Edge on your desk at work or while kicking back on the sofa!
There’s also titles such as Virtua Fighter and Alien Syndrome on here too, all with the classic arcade joystick and button-mashing pads!
Let’s keep the modern versions of old tech going with this Sega Genesis Wireless Controller from Retro-Bit.
And hey, this isn’t just a controller that works with the Sega Genesis. You can use it with the Genesis Mini, the PS3, Switch, and on either PC or Mac.
Get 30ft of gaming range with this officially licensed controller. Slot the receiver into your original Genesis or use the USB receiver for modern consoles.
Now you don’t need to worry about the dog knocking your controller out of your hand, or your brother chewing through the cable… a true story that my mate Danny told me about this morning.
It’s time for another figurine to drop into our best Sega gifts compendium. Take a look at this detailed Sega Evangelion Mari Makinami Illustrious Figure.
This figurine and more from the Evangelion figure series aren’t really toys; they’re more display pieces, and that’s reflected in the higher price tag.
If you’ve played the original Evangelion games on the Sega Saturn and gone on to watch the Rebuild of Evangelion anime, then this figurine is a great way to keep the action going when the console is off and films have finished.
The detailing on the hair is fantastic too, definitely one for the display cabinet and out of reach of the kid’s grubby paws!
Puyo Puyo Tetris is what you get when two epic franchises join forces.
Sega know what they’re doing when it comes to publishing games featuring epic collabs; just look at the Mario and Sonic series. And Puyo Puyo Tetris is no exception.
Seriously, this is a visually stunning game. It’s bright, it’s fun and about as threatening as a teacup.
Get stuck into four-player puzzle action, choosing from multiple game modes and playing with family and friends of all ages. It’s simple, quirky, and a great party game to play together on Christmas morning!
Phantasy Star Online has a massive fanbase that spans the globe. If you know someone that’s always logging on and kicking ass, then this Phantasy Star Online Racaseal Chogokin figurine would look incredible next to their PC or on their gaming table.
With diecast parts that really hammer home those android vibes and more accessories than you can shake a rifle at, this little figure certainly has lots of different looks.
It’s like a piece of art that you can customise to change the space every week or month.
Like the Evangelion figurine above, this definitely isn’t a toy to give your children or to let the dog play with. It’s definitely one for the games den or display cabinet.
What better way to learn about Sega’s glory years than with this SEGA® Master System: A Visual Compendium.
This is officially the first-ever book to be dedicated to the Sega Master system and has received the official go ahead by Sonic’s Mum and Dad (that’s Sega, just in case you’re not sure what I’m on about).
Covering over 200 games, this 8-bit pixel book captures epic scenes from amazing games to have dropped on the Master System.
Or that are still being played on the Master System if you’re gaming in Brazil!
With a dust jacket, slip case, and even 3D glasses, this book is a visual feast for the eyes. Give your bookshelf the nerdiness that it deserves.
You can’t really go wrong with a classic Sega Logo T-Shirt.
I think everyone that gamed in the 80s and 90s could recognise this logo from 10 miles away. And, coming in Sonic’s iconic blue colour, it’s the perfect Sega and Sonic gift.
Made from 100% cotton, it won’t chafe your skin when you start running as fast as the blue blur.
Just how fast is Sonic the Hedgehog anyway? I bet he could easily outrun my Fiat Bravo…
Turn every denim jacket or any pair of jeans into Sonic merch with this epic Sonic The Hedgehog Iron-on Patch.
The best kind of patches are the ones that you don’t need to sew. Just get an iron on this (or get an adult to do it if you’re too young to be wielding one), and watch as it fuses to your denim.
The thing I love the most about this patch is that it’s old-school Sonic at his best. Look at the pointy shoes; he’s definitely about to chase after Robotnik alright!
The next item on our list of the best Sega gifts is this incredibly useful Sega Genesis 2023 Wall Calendar.
Note all the moon phases and public holidays accompanied by epic stills from your favourite Sega games.
See Sketch from Comix Zone, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Shinobi, and 8 more games, all with room for you to scribble in friends birthdays and major moments in 2023!
The Sega Mega Drive 2 Mini is, as you might have guessed, one of the greatest mini consoles on the market.
Dropping in October 2022, it’s only been on the scene a month at the time of writing, and we’ve already spent pretty much every waking moment playing through the best Sega Mega Drive games from our youth.
Choose from 60 games including the epic Earthworm Jim 2 and Streets of Rage 3, some of the best 90s games of all time!!
It’s not just Mega Drive titles players can choose from though; this thing has Sega CD games on it too!
That means Sewer Shark, Night Trap, and more of the best Sega CD games with those all-so-poor FMV cut scenes!
Keep the Mega Drive love going with these swish Sega Fridge Magnets!
The cartridges have been perfectly recreated and come with a strong magnet that won’t slip and slide all the way down your fridge.
There’s 6 games to choose from too, including Mortal Kombat, Streets of Rage, Phantasy Star IV, Golden Axe, Mega Man Willy Wars, and of course, Sonic The Hedgehog 2.
Give a cheeky nod to your favourite Sega title every time you fancy an orange juice or while you’re cooking, the perfect gift for anyone who can’t stop snacking or loves to cook!
