The fast-talking dramedy has been on everyone's minds and all over social media since its Netflix revival was announced, and the four new 90-minute episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will drop on November 25th. So what can you get the Gilmore-loving guy or gal in your life that they'll absolutely love? Read on!
Eat Like a Gilmore: The Unofficial Cookbook for Fans of Gilmore Girls by Kristi Carlson
Anyone who knows the ladies Gilmore knows they love their food. (Never mind that they can't cook it themselves - that doesn't mean you can't!) The 100 recipes in the book are inspired by "Luke’s diner menu, Sookie’s eclectic inn fare, Emily’s fancy Friday Night Dinners, and town favorites," according to the Amazon description, and include risotto, salmon puffs, rocky road cookies, pumpkin pancakes, and more! This cookbook is perfect for someone who's ready to channel their inner Sookie and wow their friends and family. You can order it from Amazon.com here. Don't forget to add it to your own wishlist, too!
Netflix Gift Card
Netflix not only streams all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls' original run, but will have all four new 90-minute installments available at 12:01am PT on November 25th. Make sure the fan in your life can binge their heart out on all things Gilmore. Physical or email gift cards are available from Amazon.com.
Luke's Diner Coffee Mugs
The first rule of Gilmore Club is coffee. The second rule of Gilmore Club is more coffee. Any Gilmore Girls lover will obviously love a set of mugs from the show's best location, Luke's Diner. You can find these mugs (and others like them) on Amazon, RedBubble, and Etsy.
Tickets to tour Stars Hollow
For fans in the Southern California area (or who are willing to travel), touring Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank is a must! All seven seasons of Gilmore Girls filmed there and nearby, and the tour is super fun. Tickets start at $62.
Talking As Fast As I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (And Everything in Between) by Lauren Graham
Everyone's favorite single mom Lorelai Gilmore is played pitch-perfectly by actress Lauren Graham, who is - surprise! - also a talented writer. Her YA-friendly novel Someday, Someday, Maybe was a hit (add it to your list too!) and next up is a collection of personal essays all about her life as Lauren and Lorelai. Talking As Fast As I Can comes out November 29th, so pre-order it now!
Stars Hollow Coffee Club Subscription
Perfect for the coffee fiend in your life, there's actually Gilmore Girls-themed coffee that you can have delivered once or twice a month! (You can also order a-la-carte for a one-time gift.) Boss, right? In the mood for Luke's No-Nonsense Special or Sookie's Gourmet Blend? Check it out here!
Gilmore Girls Funko Pop! Set
Have you seen the adorable new Gilmore Girls Funko Pop! figures? They're super cute and perfect for the Lorelai, Rory, or Sookie in your life. But why not snag all three? Grab em here from Clark Toys for just under $30. Individual characters are available as well: Lorelai, Rory, and Sookie are each $9.99. Just a heads up: it looks like the figures are only in preorder so far and may not ship until January, so you may have to write up a little "coming soon" note for the gift recipient if you do buy these.
Elena Ferrante's Neapolitan Novels
I asked Queen of Literature & Pop Culture Maris Kreizman on Twitter which books she thought Rory would be reading or talking about in Gilmore's new installments. Her reply? "Ferrante Fever all the way!" The mysterious Ferrante's four Neapolitan novels have taken the lit world by storm and are much-loved among readers I admire. If your pal is a total Rory, a gift of one or more of Ferrante's acclaimed books would make a great gift. My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, and The Story of a Lost Child are each available individually. A Kindle box set of all four books is also available.
All the cute Etsy finds
Don't forget to peruse Etsy for something unique, adorable, and possibly handmade! There's so much cute stuff when you search Gilmore Girls: Rory & Lorelai BFF coffee mugs, a vintage-inspired travel poster of Stars Hollow, a Stars Hollow-scented candle, this Luke's Diner coffee cup cookie cutter (!), this spectacular Stars Hollow location sign featuring your favorite GG go-tos or this tote bag featuring SH locations, an In Omnia Paratus sticker, these adorable Luke and Lorelai bookmarks or Rory and Jess bookmarks... I could go on forever; there's SO MUCH cute stuff.
