If the cook in your family is a massive Captain America fan, get them this Captain America Shield Waffle Maker and maybe include the fixings for the waffles. Because who doesn’t love waffles for breakfast? (Amazon $24.99)

This box doesn’t actually include a Meeseek but the game inside recreates the fun of having a Mr. Meeseeks at your disposal! It’s the perfect gift for the Rick and Morty fan in your life. (Think Geek $34.99)
