Game of Thrones merchandise is a way to let fans show their kingdom pride. Some fans have no sense of dignity when it comes to letting their freak flag fly. There’s a subtle difference between the fan walks into fye and buys a Game of Thrones t-shirt that has every cast member’s face painted in a collage across the front, and the wise fan who cleverly buys a t-shirt with their favorite family’s house crest on it.
Here’s some of my favorite Game of Thrones merchandise for fans with discerning taste. Thanks go to Entertainment Earth for the ideas.
House Sigil Wax Seal Coaster 6-Pack
This is my absolute favorite fan Game of Thrones merchandise: a coaster set that looks like the house seals from Game of Thrones. It’s modern meets Martin (as in George R. R.) And with all the major houses represented, you can each choose your favorite one for your next party. What a great way to keep everyone’s drinks sorted!

Iron Coin of the Faceless Man
The Faceless Man is one of the most interesting characters on Game of Thrones. His ticket to ride, so to speak, for Arya is a coin. It would be a great talisman to keep in your pocket.
House Stark Mug
Jon Snow doesn’t know nothing. He knows that Winter is coming and they’d better cover their butts. (Although, he needed to cover his butt a little better, no?) Meanwhile, you can stay warm with a nice cuppa.
Targaryen Coffee Mug
Meanwhile, the Khaleesi will drink some wine from this Targaryen coffee mug, while sitting on her desert throne. What will you drink?
Carved Map Marker Set with Map of Westeros
Here’s one of those wonderful fan collectibles that really sorts the men from the boys, so to speak. If you’ve got a couple of hundred bucks just sitting around waiting to be spent, you can create your own war room with this wonderful map set.
House Crests Notebook
I’m a sucker for paper Game of Thrones merchandise. You never know who will snag your Raven messages, so perhaps keeping a journal (that stays in your corset!) is the best way to track your thoughts.
Direwolf Shield Replica Key Chain
The Direwolf strikes fear in the hearts of the citizens of Westeros, so perhaps this keychain will keep the unwashed masses at bay during your day-to-day trips.
Map Magnet Set
Create a mini-Westeros on your fridge with these magnets. Perhaps when your “honey do” list doesn’t get done, you can slap a House Stark magnet on it to warn the “honey” in question that his head is in danger of leaving his neck.
Iron Throne Bookend Statue
A lovely, subtle piece of Game of Thrones merchandise to help you display your love for George R. R. Martin’s series of books. Any book would be happy to rest between these bookends. (If it knows what’s good for it.)
Lannister Map Marker
Hold down papers, napkins, or an unwelcome guest’s hand, with this gorgeous map marker of House Lannister. (House Stark is available, too.)
Direwolf Sculpted Mug
Your unwanted guest will get the hint to leave when the Direwolf’s head gradually appears in his drink. (Or maybe this is an incentive to get out of bed in the morning to enjoy your coffee. Hello, Wolfie!)
Strike fear in your enemy’s heart (or at least in the boardroom) when she spies this ring, subtle reminder that you support the family that still survives, even after the Red Wedding. (The North remembers!)
Longclaw Sword Die-Cast Metal Letter Opener
You, too, can feel like the Lord Commander when you slice through envelopes, hands, jugulars. You know, whatever’s nearby.
