16 ‘Stranger Things’ Items Only Super Fans Will Appreciate
Television isn’t really my go-to unwinding activity. My friends perpetually recommend shows to me and get really mad when, six months later, I’m roughly three episodes in. That’s why, come Christmas, they all know to get me Stranger Things items that only true fans will appreciate — because I finished that entire thing in two days, and that’s record-breaking for me. I’m obsessed. Put frankly, it’s hands down one of the greatest shows I’ve seen in a long, long time, and if you or someone you know happens to agree, it’s time to stock up on your Stranger Things gifts.
If you’re not familiar with the cinematic television genius that is Stranger Things, allow me to give you a quick overview: this Netflix original series came out earlier this summer, and it became an instant cult favorite, gathering more viewers than House of Cards, Narcos, and Daredevil. The show follows a group of friends who lose one of their best buddies to a dark alternate dimension and team up with the result of governmental experiments — a girl with superpowers. Basically, it’s like Stand By Me meets The Goonies meets X-Men, and it’s amazing. So are all these things that everyone who’s in love with Stranger Things will appreciate.
