These plush are hard to find so it's unlikely most X-Men fans already have them.  For $12 you can be a great gifter and remedy that for them.

Power Rangers Lord Zedd Figure:

I'm pretty sure everyone watched Power rangers in the 90's even if you didn't like it, you watched it because it was everywhere. Even though Power rangers has gone through many incarnations now I think many of us still fondly remember the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers and probably think that in spite of it's many flaws it was the best one of the series. This is a newer figure of Zedd in a SD form, but he's still bring anyold school  Power Rangers fan a bit of nostalgia. At only $5 a great choice for a stocking stuffer.

Pokemon Butterfree Figure:

One of the greatest gifts of the 90's was surely the Pokemon explosion,  which luckily for fans like myself,  is still going strong today. This is one of the original 150 Pokemon, Butterfree. This is a cute little figure and a great nostalgia piece for the Pokemon fan on your shopping list priced at only $6.

Disney Pocahontas and Meeko Figure:

Disney Pochahontas Figure
The 90's Disney Renaissance gave us some of the best animated films ever made, Pocahontas fell near the end of that period and though it's incredibly historically inaccurate it's still an enjoyable memorable film.
