The Best Gifts for the Ultimate Gilmore Girls Fans
November 25th, humans around the globe will have a new reason to rejoice – The Gilmore Girls are back! I remember watching them with my mom through Middle and High School, and it was pretty much the only thing we did together at the time. I was starting to get in that “I’m too cool for my parents” phase, and like a typical teen, felt like they just couldn’t relate. However, my mom and I always had a standing date night to watch Gilmore Girls, and even to this day it’s “our” show. In fact, after we moved out of her house, a little birdie told me that she started watching the seasons over again on Netflix and there may have been some tears shed. Little did she know, I may or may not have been doing the same thing at Casa LPG (ok, I was).
Because we were such Gilmore Girls fans back in the day, I’m hoping we’ll continue our viewing party date nights when the reboot happens, only this time it’ll have to be via the phone instead of on the couch together. I’m starting to get SO excited to see what Lorelai and Rory are up to, who they’re with, if Stars Hollow is still as quaint and quirky as ever (it probably is), and I literally have a countdown going on my phone for when the Gilmore Girls reboot starts up.
And because you know I love shopping small and obsessing over particular themes, I decided to start scouring the inter webs (mostly Etsy) to find my favorite Gilmore Girls merchandise for the premier of “A Year in the Life”. In no particular order, here are some of my favorite Gilmore Girls Gifts, for the true Stars Hollow fan:
If you are a die-hard Gilmore Girls fan and want some super authentic eats for when you’re hunkered down in front of your TV watching the reboot, this cookbook is a must! There are snippets at the beginning of each recipe to give you a little background on each dish in relation to the show, and when the characters ate it. There are 100 recipes, including tasty dishes from Luke’s diner menu, Sookie’s inn fare, Emily’s Friday night dinners, and more town favorites, including: Salmon Puffs, Rocky Road Cookies and The Birthday Girl Cocktail!

Because we all know that coffee is the Gilmore’s love language, and Luke’s is their second home. Etsy has a million different options for Luke’s diner mugs, and you can’t go wrong with any of them! Many of the shops even offer a Lorelei-Approved 20oz size, huzzah! For that matter, pretty much any coffee mug is going to need to be at your side while you binge watch the reboot! Some of my favorites:
Stars Hollow Town Print
I’m pretty sure we’ve all daydreamed about living in quirky little Stars Hollow. These fun prints feature all the landmarks we know and love, such as the town’s gazebo, Luke’s diner, the Gilmore house, the town’s signs and the church.
Rory’s Reading List Poster:
Team Logan Tee:
Wear your heart on your sleeve (or chest) with pride, and choose a side! Urban Tee Farm’s Etsy shop is my favorite I’ve found to declare my favorite of Rory’s suitors. I mean, come ON, those silhouettes? So perfect! And yes, this Gilmore fan is “Team Logan” all the way. Are you a relationship flip flopper? Then these fun earrings are a much easier way to change your mind as you rewatch!
Gilmore Girls Magnets:
What better to spruce up the pizza and Chinese takeout menus on your fridge than with some fun Gilmore Girls magnets?! Any of these un magnets are sure to inspire you to eat like a Gilmore
I’m also obsessed with all these options from Poverty Barn!
Where you lead pillow:
The “Where you lead” theme song pillow definitely gives me all the feels. No matter what Gilmore Girls themed pillow you choose, it is the perfect thing to cuddle up and relax with while you’re binging on seasons 1 – 7 or the new release!
Your keys have never looked so cool! Perfect to pay homage to Lorelei and Sookie’s dream, and to honor their Inn’s updated historical street name. This Dragonfly Inn keychain is meant to look like a real hotel key from the Dragonfly Inn, and definitely makes me wish I could stay there for a long weekend!

Gilmore Girls Card
Pretty sure my mother may shed some tears if she were to ever receive a “You’re the Lorelei to My Rory” card! Don’t wait for mother’s day or best friends day, just send someone you love a card, just because. Opening a Gilmore Girls card amidst bills and junk mail is probably one of the best things you can do for someone!

Think of all the crafts! I love all the Stars Hollow and Gilmore Girls themed options that April Cobb’s Etsy shop has!
