What are the best gifts for Minions fans? 

Minions are characters featured in the 2010 film “Despicable Me” and were so popular that these babbling, high-spirited banana-loving henchmen got their own spin-off in 2015. Since then, they have become a pop-culture staple, so much so that the “Despicable Me” ride at Universal Studios is called “Minion Mayhem.” Kids and adults alike have fallen in love with these wide-eyed, well-intentioned but often clumsy and troublesome creatures. 

However, even if you aren’t a Minion fan, you probably know someone who is, so next time you need to get that person a gift, you might want to consider one of the following options.
