10. Notebooks

Nothing is better than a great-looking notebook as your study partner.

Notebooks and stationery supplies with anime prints on them make them a good collectible item. This is number ten since this item is most suitable for students and cannot be gifted to everyone based on its usability. However, as I said before, anime lovers love to collect anime collectibles, so this can act as a great present if you want to go for it.

9. Keychains

If you ask me about the cutest thing you can ever gift someone, I will always recommend you to go for a quiet set of keychains.

These also act as a substitute for relatively big and expensive anime figurines. Other than that, you can also find the keychains in different and more “kawaii” designs, which will surely act up as a great present. You can also pair them up with the next item in the list to make your present look more presentable.
