How to Create a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Gift Set
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a television show that many of us grew up with. That is, the 1964 animated Rankin/Bass television story. We shared the story with our children when they were growing up and we still look forward to watching it every year.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was written in 1939 as a short story in a thin booklet form by Robert L. May. It was a giveaway for the store he worked for, Montgomery Ward and that year, the store gave away 2.5 million copies to visiting children. The Rudolph story went on to be part of a popular song, the television program in 1964 and a movie in 1998.
You probably know the plot of the story of Rudolph, the young reindeer with the glowing red nose. Rudolph was not accepted by his peers because his nose glowed but eventually proved himself on Christmas Eve when Santa Claus needed help pulling his sleigh.
Rudolph is now firmly established as part of our pop culture. He is so popular that we love the idea of putting together a gift set for both the young people in our lives or for the older folk who hold Rudolph firmly in their hearts. Therefore, on this page, we have assembled a few of the best Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer products available to help you create a simply smashing gift set for someone on your gift list this Christmas.

A Rudolph Hardcover Book
Of course, every Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer gift set should probably start with a copy of the classic book, as shown here. I love the fact that the book has now been recreated in a hardcover version to look like the booklet that Robert L. May originally created for Montgomery Ward in 1939.
Find the hardcover Rudolph book on Amazon here.
A Funko Rudolph Plushie
If you are looking for something soft and cuddly, you might consider adding one or even all three of the Funko Rudolph plush toys. Your choices include Rudolph himself as shown here as well as Hermey the Elf from the Island of Misfit Toys and Bumbles. They're fun hug-gable, collectable toys that will be treasured every year at Christmastime.
Find this Rudolph Funko on Amazon.
A Jim Shore Rudolph Christmas Ornament
If you are looking for something a bit more grown up but still precious, you might consider a Jim Shore figure like the one shown here. They are hand-painted and hand-crafted and this one features a musical sleigh with Santa, Rudolph and Hermey.

A Rudolph Coffee Mug
Vandor Rudolph mug seen here but given the current very expensive price point, I presume that it is no longer in production so I went searching a bit farther and came up with this handsome new blue Vandor mug. Another fun item to take out of the Christmas box each and every year.

A Rudolph Tote Bag
Finally, you might choose to pack your gift in a handsome and reusable bag, like the Rudolph one shown below. This bag is strong and water resistant. It is meant for shopping but also makes the perfect gift bag for your gift set and it is an item that will be used by the recipient over and over again.
