You don’t have to spend too much time in our home to know we have a Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan in our family. Whether he’s reading the latest book in the series, rereading his old favorites, or writing in his own journal, our son is constantly channeling his inner Greg Heffley through this series.
Needless to say, we’ve become quite familiar with Wimpy Kid gifts after all this time.

While we personally own most of these, there are a couple that my kiddo has on his wishlist. Either way, they all make great Wimpy Kid gifts:
Wimpy Kid Gifts for your
Diary of a Wimpy Kid fan
1. Double Down
If you’re got a Wimpy Kid fan in your home, chances are they’re itching to get their hands on Double Down, the latest Wimpy Kid release. Double Down is the eleventh book in the series and released on November 1, 2016.
Also worth noting, my kiddo started reading it after dinner on Thursday and finished it before I woke up the next morning. Point being, he loved it enough to devour it just as he did the rest of the series.
2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Journal
This Diary of a Wimpy Kid Journal makes a great gift for Wimpy Kid fans! It’s pretty much an exact replica of Greg Heffley’s famous diary from the Wimpy Kid movies — that’s exactly what my kiddo loves about it.
Other than the cover itself, it’s a standard 144-page journal and a great, no-fuss way to get your kiddo writing.
3. Wimpy Kid Illustrated Calendar
If your Wimpy Kid fan loves to have a calendar on the wall, this 2017 Wimpy Kid Illustrated Calendar is the one to get. It covers 16 months and includes stickers to help mark special days and activities.
4. Diary of a Wimpy Kid DVD Collection
Additionally, The Wimpy Kid Movie Diary gives a glimpse behind the scenes of the movies and explains the process of getting the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books to the big screen.
5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid Boxed Sets
If your kiddo is just getting started with the series, the boxed sets are a great way to build up a Wimpy Kid collection. There are boxed collections for Books 1-4 and Books 5-8, but there’s also a paperback collection for Books 1-10.
6. Wimpy Kid Mad Libs
This little Wimpy Kid Mad Libs book is a ton of fun. In fact, it saved the day during a recent seven-hour road trip.
7. The 10-Second Challenge
The 10-Second Challenge looks like a great addition to your family game night collection. The goal of the game is to complete the tasks chosen from the challenge cards within ten seconds. I especially like that it’s interactive and gets players moving around.
8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid
This is one of our favorite Wimpy Kid gifts! In fact, after my kiddo got this Do-It-Yourself Book, it was his gift of choice for all his friends. The book contains more than 200 pages and (bonus!) is great way to get kids writing. It prompts them to write about their lives, futures, and much more.
9. Who Is Jeff Kinney?
We used Who Is Jeff Kinney? as the foundation of our Jeff Kinney Unit Study, but this book doesn’t have to be just for educational purposes. My Wimpy Kid fan enjoyed learning about Kinney’s inspiration for the books and about Kinney himself. It’s likely that yours will, too!
10. The Cheese Touch Game
The Cheese Touch Game could be lots of fun for older Wimpy Kid fans to play with their friends and family. It’s designed for kids 8 years and up and centers around each player answering questions and guessing how the other players answered them. An incorrect answer, however, can result in the dreaded cheese touch.
