Eight Holiday Gifts For The Stephen King Fanatic In Your Life

It can really be a challenge to find the right holiday gift for the right person. But if that person is a Stephen King fan, we just made it 100 percent easier for you, with this list of Stephen King-centric gifts and other items for the King lover in your life. After all, we’re here in Bangor — a.k.a. Derry — and we know this stuff pretty well. In fact, we’ve got some exclusively Bangor-made stuff that you can’t find just anywhere, as well as some other goodies sure to please even the hardest-to-please King fan.

The best Stephen King gifts are books, naturally, but for the fanatic that’s got everything, HERE are some extra special goodies for the giving.

Bangor Daily News Stephen King Photo Prints

Bangor Daily News has been covering Stephen King for decades — and they’ve got the photos to prove it. Did you know you can have any of their BDN photos printed for a small fee? If you’re looking for that one-of-a-kind King piece to gift, try something from one of their talented BDN photographers. Like this, from 1982.

Also, be on the lookout in the coming weeks for a limited edition fine art print of Stephen King’s iconic “Study Dammit!” poster, made during his years writing for the University of Maine’s Maine Campus newspaper. The poster has been out of print for a few years, but Gerald Winters and Son has commissioned new prints of it that should be arriving just in time for the holidays. Check its website and Facebook for more information.
