What Do you Get the Gilmore Girls Fan who has Everything?


With only nine sleeps to go ’til Christmas Day, what do you get for the Gilmore Girls fan who has everything?

You’ve got the DVD box set with unaired additional scenes and behind the scenes extras and the CD soundtrack. How about the novels, the essays, a copy of the pilot shooting script or signed head shots of the cast?

If it’s cold enough, how about a home-made ice rink?  Cat themed pot-holders?  Rock polisher?  A dozen glass apples?  I could  go on, obviously.

Or how about a piece of Stars Hollow?  There’s tie-in merchandise, both WB Studio-approved and WB-not-so-approved. Some of the official stuff is a little bizarre… I mean, watches with Luke’s cafe logo? Maybe in Bizarro World, where Richard’s plan to turn Luke’s into a franchise actually happened… They also shill t-shirts, mugs, phone covers(?) and ‘ornaments'(?!!).

On the not-so-approved side, creative types have put their related wares on Etsy.  Now, I’m on no commission here but to ease my conscience I must deliver this WARNING: Check your bank balance before hitting this Etsy link. Here be Cross-Stitch.

Nice to see Luke and Richard shaved for the picture.  It took me a while to figure out Rory is holding a book. Emily Stitchinson, if I’m not mistaken.

Etsy also has t-shirts, mugs, prints, copies of Lorelai’s winter scarves and this beauty:

hail lorelai

I hope you all get what you need for Christmas.  Personally, I’d like world peace but I’d settle for ASP announcing the movie in June and another LiveTweet get-together sometime.  And that candle, obvs.

What’s the best Gilmore Girls-related present you ever received? And what are you dropping hints for in your stocking this year?

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and gilmorenews.com for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.

    AS Berman’s 2010 book “The Gilmore Girls Companion” is highly useful and fun, especialy for the newbies to the show generated from all the recent Netflix activity.

    I don’t have that! I have the collected essays (‘Coffee at Luke’s’?) but I shall add that to my list. Wait does that mean I’m a noob? :O)
