Promising review: "This music box is a gift for the avid Spirited Away fans that doesn't break the bank. It has great clear designs that capture the sentimental nature of Spirited Away." —Amanda

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

I have these socks and love them! I've also purchased them as gifts and they're always a huge hit. Since they're a little bit higher, I like wearing them with tall boots.

Promising review: "When I spotted these socks I knew I needed them in my life, as I love Miyazaki’s films. I’m usually particularly picky about my socks so I don’t risk buying online since it’s impossible to know the quality, but thankfully these are great! Soft, stretchy, and not scratchy at all. They are super cute and look great peaking above your shoes. I wear a US 9 and they fit perfectly." —Nancy

Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

4. A playful broomstick necklace with Jiji hanging onto it just like he typically does Kiki's — so cute they'll want to wear it every day., Amazon

Promising review: "WOW this is seriously the CUTEST necklace ever!!! I love how Jiji’s tail swings so freely and how he can slide up and down the broom!!! So adorable! Plus he’s soft coated, different from the shiny broom he’s on. The chain is very good quality and so is the broom. Even my mom loved it. Completely worth it if you’re a Studio Ghibli fanatic and grew up watching Kiki’s Delivery’s Service." —Jessica Rivers

Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

5. A plush Jiji journal so they'll always have somewhere to write down sassy remarks — it's what Kiki's cat would want.

I have one of these journals and they're just *so* cute. They're light enough to keep in your everyday bag but also look just as nice on your bedside table. If for some odd reason you don't love Jiji, you can check out this similar version featuring the Catbus.

Get it from Amazon for $16.29 or Chronicle Books for $16.95.

6. A Porco Rosso tee they can refer to anytime someone tries to pull the old "when pigs fly" line on em'.

Promising review: "Very soft and my husband loved it! Fits true to size." —Razcadet

Get it from BoxLunch for $14.45 (available in men's sizes XS–2XL).

7. A My Neighbor Totoro mug they'll cherish sipping tea out of on a particularly rainy day while wondering if Satsuki and Mei are somewhere waiting with umbrellas for their dad to get home in similar weather., Amazon

Promising review: "This teacup is beautiful and perfect. Is it expensive, especially for the size? Yes, but if you have the money, it's worth it. It was one of my husband's present's for my birthday, and I LOVE it. It's sturdy and looks extremely well made. And it's just lovely. 100% recommended." —rebecamontiel

Get it from Amazon for $20.

8. A comforter with an all-over Studio Ghibli pattern they can wrap themselves up in for a marathon of all their favorite movies.

9. A plush version of Jiji they'll love snuggling up with while watching Kiki's Delivery Service for the thousandth time. Just remind your friend to try not to feed him pancakes (he's a stuffed animal).

I have one of these little guys and just love him. A friend gave him to me and I keep him in my bedroom window — just like the real Jiji.

Promising review: "If it weren't for the fact that it is an animated film, I would believe that this was the same plushie they used in the movie. I know that is silly, but he is just so perfect, very soft and with very dense stuffing so he has a nice thickness that feels good. He sits properly and even though it took a bit of coaxing, his ears stand up like they should." —kenekeMalia

Get it from Amazon for $30.

10. Any of the movies on Blu-ray or DVD, so they can experience their favorite scenes over and over again whenever the mood strikes.

I personally watch My Neighbor Totoro whenever it's pouring or I'm having a bad day — they might just feel the same. The steelbook versions are also display-worthy and will look great on any shelf.

Check out all of the Studio Ghibli Blu-ray and DVD offerings on GKIDS.

11. Or a subscription to HBO Max, where Studio Ghibli films can be digitally found. A perfect gift for anyone who loves these movies but has gotten reliant on their smart TV and is officially too lazy to use a DVD player.

Promising review: "Really nice stickers. So many different designs and in so many different styles. Most of the stickers are Spirited Away–themed, but there are other Studio Ghibli classics such as Howl’s Moving Castle, My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Princess Mononoke, Castle in the Sky, and much more. They’re those vinyl type stickers that are pretty thick and mostly waterproof. I put some on my water bottle and notebooks. Love them!" —Amazon Customer

Get them from Amazon for $11.99.

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

21. A backpack with a design of Kiki all over it they can toss all of their essentials into before heading out on a Ghibli-like adventure — who knows what awaits!

Promising review: "I am so in love with this. I collect all of Loungefly's Kiki bags. Most of them only have Jiji so I'm glad they finally made another with Kiki herself. It's beautiful, vibrant, and can pack a lot. Highly recommend!" —Jiji811

Get it from BoxLunch for $48.98.

22. And a pocket tee with a hidden surprise any Studio Ghibli fan will be delighted to discover and show off time and time again.

When you pull the pocket of the shirt down it reveals No-Face's monstrous mouth ready to consume gold (and!) There are also adorable designs featuring Totoro and the soot sprites!

Promising review: "The shirt is absolutely amazing! High quality and not thin and flimsy. The shirt fits true to size for a unisex-style shirt, so I purchased a large (I'm 5-foot-10 and like my shirts a bit looser). The shipping was extremely prompt and the shirt came with a personalized card inside, which I thought was really sweet. I will be purchasing from Dorkypop again!" —Patricia V.

Get it from Dorkypop for $32 (available in unisex sizes XS, M-2XL).
