17 Things 'Gilmore Girls' Super Fans Actually Need In Their Lives
If you clicked on this article, odds are the word “November” means one thing to you: the Gilmore Girls Netflix Revival. Whether you’re binge-watching like a boss in an attempt to catch up beforehand, or you’ve been waiting for this moment since the credits rolled on May 15, 2007, now’s the best time to invest in items every true Gilmore Girls fan needs in their lives. After all, the best kind of gift is a Gilmore Girls gift, and that goes double if you’re buying it for you and your friends in the name of these roughly 45-minute long episodes.
Personally, on November 25 of this year, I’ll be seated on my best friend’s couch alongside a few of our closest Gilmore enthusiasts. Coffee will be had. Tears may be shed. The idea of matching Gilmore Girls T-shirts has been thrown around, as well as the suggestion that we get takeout from the town diner — although it’s not Luke’s, so why even bother? Regardless, we’re all stocking up on some great super fan Gilmore Girls merchandise because if there’s anything that Rory and Lorelai are most definitely behind, it’s quotes, shopping, and apparatuses to hold your coffee in.
