5 Gift Ideas for World of Tanks Players

Shopping for a World of Tanks fan? Here are some ideas to help you get started.

Shopping for a World of Tanks player may not come as an easy task.  To help you out this holiday season, we’ve put together this list of gifts that are sure to please both World of Tanks fans and tank lovers alike. Although this list includes reasonably priced items as well as more expensive ones, there are options to suit nearly any gift budget. We hope this list will help you find the perfect gift for the World of Tanks player in your life. 

Premium Account Time 

A Premium Account upgrade is one of the best in-game things you can get for a World of Tanks player. A Premium Account subscription lets players earn more Credits and Experience in each battle, allowing them to progress more quickly through the game. Premium Account subscriptions come in several different time durations, ranging from a 24-hour subscription all the way up to a 360-day subscription. Head over to the Wargaming Premium Shop to see each Premium Account time option. 

Gold

Gold is a great gift option, as the recipient can spend it how they wish.

Gold is right up there with Premium Account time for most World of Tanks players in terms of value. Gold is the in-game currency used in World of Tanks to purchase a number of Premium items including account time, vehicles, ammunition and consumables, along with credit conversion and various other upgrades in the garage. Gold is a great gift option, as it allows the gift recipient to purchase what they want with it. Select a Gold bundle in the Premium Shop and choose the option to buy “as a gift” to send it to a World of Tanks player of your choice. 

Tank Model Kits & Collectible Coins 

If you’re looking to please a more crafty World of Tanks fan, consider getting them a model kit of their favorite tank. The Wargaming Store sells various World of Tanks Roll Out model kits for a number of popular tank types, including the Cromwell, M4 Sherman, M24 Chaffee, Type 59 and more. There is even a diorama of the Himmelsdorf map for those looking for a more scenic option.

Along with model kits, the Wargaming online store also sells a variety of merchandise, including clothing, accessories, and even hardware. However, we are particularly fond of their small selection of Collectible Coins. These signature coins are made of zinc alloy and are printed with one of the medal achievements from World of Tanks. These coins are a nifty real-world option for commemorating a player’s favorite in-game accomplishments. 

Tank Slippers

Etsy has a number of tank slippers to choose from. These are from the Etsy shop, "paintcrochet."
These slippers are available on the "LikeWant" Etsy shop.

Okay, this one is a bit unconventional compared to the previous options, but we’re sure that any World of Tanks fan would love to receive a pair of hand-knit tank slippers to keep their feet toasty while gaming. Etsy has a number of handmade tank slipper designs to choose from, most of which appear to be German Panzers for whatever reason. Tank slippers vary in price depending on the seller, but it appears like there are enough options to fit most gift budgets. 

Tank Riding Experience 

This is by far the priciest gift option on this list, but if you really want to impress a World of Tanks aficionado, then the gift of a real-life tank experience is the way to go. While some World of Tanks players have experience with tanks through military service, there are still many devoted tank fans who have not even seen a real tank up close. There are precious few places to arrange a ride in a real tank, but we managed to find at least one option here in the US. If you live anywhere near Minnesota or are willing to book a trip, consider signing up for a unique tank riding experience hosted by Drive a Tank.

The Drive a Tank website offers several different package options, each of which include special training, target practice at a shooting range, and transport inside a 5-ton military vehicle. Packages start at $449 for the 3-Star Lt. General package and increase in price from there. For an additional cost, you can even add-on the option to crush cars during your tank ride! We’re getting excited just writing about it. If you’re feeling generous and know someone who would truly appreciate this unique tank experience, then this package deal may be worth the cost for the World of Tanks player in your life. 

If you’re a World of Tanks player, there’s no shame in treating yourself to a few of these gifts as well. Let us know in the comments which of these gifts you’d love to receive!
