Welcome back for another installment of Daily Dead’s 2019 Holiday Gift Guide! Today, we’re putting the spotlight on one of my own personal obsessions—enamel pins—by highlighting some of the fantastic sites where you can find tons of killer pin designs. So, if you’re looking for some awesome stocking stuffers this holiday season, be sure to check out what all these great online retailers have to offer.

Happy shopping, y’all!


I absolutely adore Pixel Elixir and all their enamel pin designs (the recently released Santa Claws? AMAZING). Here’s a look at just a few of their pixel-perfect pins from their online store:


What can’t Mondo do? Their collections of artwork, apparel, and collectibles are all amazing, but then they also offer some fantastic enamel pins, too, which, if you’re a movie fan, you should definitely check out their entire selection.


We are huge fans of Cavitycolors around these parts, so of course I had to include them in our rundown of all the great enamel pins for horror fans. Here are just a few of CC’s killer designs (I wear my Vlad Cat regularly):


As you may have guessed from their multiple appearances on this year’s HGG, we also have a lot of love for Fright-Rags, which is why we wanted to celebrate some of their enamel pins as well. Here are just a few of their fun offerings:


I dig all of Forever Midnight’s pins, which is why I wanted to include them again in the HGG, but I think their April Fool’s Day design is just the bee's knees. Be sure to check out Forever Midnight’s full collection HERE.


I’ve been collecting pins from Yesterdays for years now (my first one was their adorable Stay Puft pin), and they always have fun pins for all types of movie fans, too, in case you have some shopping to do for the non-horror fans in your life (although I’m sure Santa has put those folks on the naughty list!).


Making another appearance in the 2019 HGG is Creepy Company, one of the best purveyors of horror-themed merch out there. This is just an assortment of their enamel pins that would make for great stocking stuffers this holiday season.

LONDON 1888: 

What I love about London 1888’s pins is that they have a great mix of baubles that celebrate some of the expected icons of horror (Jason, MacReady from The Thing), but they also have some deep cuts going on with their designs (Freaked? The “Hands Across America” design from Us? Brilliant.) that I really admire as well. Be sure to check out their site HERE to see all their excellent enamel pins.


Headstone City is another company that we’ve featured on the HGG over the last few years, and for good reason: they do great work. Here are just a few of their horror-themed pins:


Our final online shop for today’s celebration of enamel pins is Deeply Dapper, who may have a limited selection of pins, but their designs are fantastic and horror fans should definitely pay them a visit (their Krampus pin would make for a devilishly delightful gift this year). 


If you’re looking to pick up some enamel pins from some indie artists, here is a collection of pins I recently found on Etsy that are totally rad.
