8 perfect gifts for the Gilmore Girls fan in your life (a.k.a. yourself)

Looks like our holiday wish list has been finalized.

 

Luke’s Diner Mugs

Like Lorelai, we also wish we could be hooked up to a coffee IV. But if we have to settle for drinking coffee the old-fashioned way, we might as well do it in style. The Etsy shop BethLynnDesigns sells hand-painted Luke’s Diner coffee cups from $18. They also offer Gilmore Girls-inspired products, like Doose’s Market tote bags.

Lip Balm 

Keep your lips moisturized with GG-inspired lip balms from Urban Tee Farm. Vicious Trollop, a pink-orange vanilla lip tint is named after Lorelai’s favourite lipstick; Spring Break is a mango-mint flavour with an orange tint for Paris and Rory’s beach vacation in their first year at Yale; and (of course) there is Java Junkie, a coffee-flavoured balm. One stick is about $6.70, but you can get all three for a little more than $16.

Brija Cosmetics is vegan, cruelty- and dye-free e-shop that offers a Gilmore Girls-themed eye shadow palette with 17 different hues. Each colour is inspired by a character, like “Truly Important” for Miss Patty and “Notes in the Margins” for Jess. You can get them in various sizes, but why not purchase all 17 for about $125.60.

Eat Like a Gilmore Cookbook

Gilmore Girls superfan Kristi Carlson launched a Kickstarter campaign back in March to fill a Gilmore-diet-sized void in her (and our) lives. Carlson raised over $63,000 to create her unofficial cookbook, which contains over 100 recipes inspired by the show. Each recipe is labelled under one of three categories: Sookie’s Kitchen, Luke’s Diner and Emily’s Staff, making it easy to cook to your mood. Get ready to cook like you’re trying to impress Sookie.

Ice cream

 

Thank you to all those fans who participated in our #GilmoreGirlsIceCream contest! After combing through over 2,500 entries, we are thrilled to announce the winning flavor! They Scoop Gilmores, Don't They? Coffee (of course) chocolate pudding ice cream (because Emily is trying after all) but oy, with the snickerdoodles already-- topped with pink [Pop Tart] sprinkles. There were so many excellent options, puns and flavor combinations that we couldn’t choose just one. The winning flavor is an amalgamation of three amazing suggestions: @pauline__beal’s allusion to Emily’s attempt at chocolate pudding, @ryebecca’s ingenius “oy with the snickerdoodles already” and @jjjmmd’s name-- a reference to a reference to a reference. This flavor will be available at all our NYC scoop shops beginning this week and is available for nationwide shipping now! You can order individual pints in a Choose Your Own Story 5-Pack or opt for a Gilmore Girls-themed 4-Pack: Where You Lead, I Will Marshmallow (name suggested by Rebecca Phillips). Copper boom!

Full disclosure: you’ll have to drive to Brooklyn if you really want to try Ample Hills Creamery’s Gilmore Girls-inspired ice cream. The shop, which hand-makes the dessert, held a contest last month asking fans for flavour and name ideas. The winner? “They Scoop Gilmores, Don’t They?” (referencing the infamous dance-marathon episode when Dean and Rory break up), a coffee, chocolate pudding ice cream with Snickerdoodles and pink Pop Tart sprinkles.

T-shirts

Austin-based Kindred Handicrafts offers some 30 colourful GG-inspired tees to choose from. Our faves? Hep Alien (Lane’s band) one and one with Lorelai’s oft-quoted line, “Oy with the poodles already.” You can get your own for about $37.60, or make it a family affair with the e-store’s baby and toddler sizes.

Deck out your brand-new GG tees with these ultra-charming enamel pins from Heartificial. There are tons to choose from, including a Luke’s Diner logo and an “in omnia paratus” umbrella for Team Logan and Rory. There are even Rory and Lorelai pins that come in a two-pack, because, obviously, the Gilmore Girls can’t be separated.
