18 'Real Housewives' Product Gifts For Super Fans — Because The Housewives Always Have a Side Hustle
Shopping during the holidays can get really stressful, especially when you are shopping for someone who you have no idea what to buy. Well, you're in luck if that special someone you're shopping for is a fan of Bravo's Real Housewives series, because there are a ton of Housewives inspired products out there that any fan would be thrilled to have.
Watching the housewives of whatever city launch products with their new found fame never ceases to intrigue the masses. Whether it is a drink line, a toaster oven (yes, really) line, or maybe even a clothing line, the women that Bravo has enlisted across the country seem to never be short of money-making ideas (OK, so maybe they're not all raking in the money like Skinnygirl's Bethenny Frankel). Regardless of their success, we love the Real Housewives for trying and bringing more of them to our everyday lives.
So whether you're shopping for your sister, co-worker, or anti-Kenya cousin, consider shopping Real Housewives this holiday season, and you'll help keep these women employed!
Brandi Glanville's 'Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders'
For the Real Housewives fan who loves to read, RHOBH’s Glanville’s book is a New York Times bestseller, which is pretty damn impressive. The book is basically Glanville’s one-on-ones from the show in book form, so you are sure to laugh and cry (and maybe both) at the stories Glanville has to tell.
Kathy Wakile's Gourmet Cannoli Kit
We’ve seen Kathy work to create a dessert brand on the show, and now you can indulge in her famous cannolis during the holidays… because you deserve it.
Phaedra Parks' 'Secrets of the Southern Belle'
In the longest title to ever hit a book, Secrets of the Southern Belle: how to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment , Parks outlines the how-to’s of every single moment of your life.
Aviva Drescher's 'Leggy Blonde: A Memoir'
Ramona Singer's Pinot Grigio
What is Ramona without her Pinot Grigio? Nothing, that’s what. This super-affordable wine is perfect to bring to a Housewives fan’s holiday party.
LuAnn de Lesseps' The Countess Collection
Countess LuAnn’s collection with ShopHQ is exactly what you’d expect from her, darling. This cape (The Countess Collection Ponte Knit Two-Pocket Collarless Cape) is great for the fashionista who wants to exude class with the countess, but look like a cool Olivia Pope. De Lesseps also has a “class” book (Class with the Countess) available online.
Heather Thomson's Yummie by Heather Thomson
Thomson’s line of slimwear features everything from undergarments to workout gear. Since it’s slightly weird to buy someone the equivalent of Spanx for the holidays, try out this “Vera Jacket,” which is great for running errands or running a marathon.
Melissa Gorga's HSN Jewelry
Perhaps you’re shopping for a glam gal, who loves to frost herself. Try these earrings (Melissa Gorga Goldtone Pave Triangular Drop Earrings) that are apart of Gorga’s HSN jewelry line. They’ll be “On Display” all night.
Teresa Giudice's 'Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It'
The full title of Giudice’s book is Skinny Italian: Eat It and Enjoy It - Live La Bella Vita and Look Great, Too . It’s a mouth full. The book, which came out in 2010, is full of recipes Teresa “cooks” for her family. If cooking isn’t your thing, hopefully alcohol is, because Teresa also has a wine called “Fabellini” (Yes. Fabellini) which is a sparkling wine under 130 calories.
Kristen Taekman's EBOOST
You’ve seen its shameless advertising all over Taekman’s season of RHONY, so why not just go out any buy it? Wondering what exactly it is? It’s the answer to your holiday prayers, an energy powder (or energy shots) that will boost your level of energy to finish up your gift shopping, or help you after your office’s boozy holiday party.
Carole Radziwill's 'A Widow's Guide to Sex and Dating: A Novel'
This book was very popular on the most recent season of RHONY. Was there a ghostwriter or was this one all Radziwill? My guess is it was all Radziwill’s doing, she is a writer after all. The book, which came out in Feb. 2014, has great reviews and is definitely worth picking up for some quality reading.
Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl
She’s baaaack. Frankel is back on RHONY, and what better way to celebrate than with a glass of her famous margarita? The line also features vodkas, wines, and ready-to-drink cocktails.
Kandi Burruss' Bedroom Kandi
For that special someone… consider buying some “Bedroom Kandi.” Here is the “Scented Massage Oil Candle in Lavender,” which is kind of a double duty gift. When the candle melts, you can use the oil for massages. So really, the price is a two for one. Check out Bedroom Kandi’s website for more candy for the, well, bedroom.
Lisa Vanderpump's SUR (or PUMP) Gift Certificate
Treat yo ‘self to a luxurious dinner at Vanderpump’s swanky SUR restaurant (or PUMP, if you want to be like Jennifer Lawrence). While you’re there, keep an eye out for the Vanderpump Rules staff. Perfect gift for the foodie, or just the reality show obsessed.
NeNe Leakes' 'Never Make The Same Mistake Twice'
The full title of Leakes’ 2011 book is Never Make the Same Mistake Twice: Lessons on Love and Life Learned the Hard Way . Leakes’ has always been entertaining, and her book is no different. If you’re looking for something more lively to give the NeNe fan in your life, try tickets to Cinderella on Broadway, where Leakes’ is starring until Jan. 3 as the wicked stepmother.
'New Jersey's Caroline Manzo's 'Let Me Tell You Something'
Two things to say about this off the bat. 1) I know Manzo isn’t a Real Housewife anymore, but she is an OG of Jersey, so she will forever be one to me. 2) What a title for a book (if you don’t remember Manzo’s famous “Let me tell you something about my family… we’re as thick as thieves,” then I suggest you revisit Season 1). Manzo is one housewife that might actually have some sound advice, and moving stories, so definitely check this one out.
Tamra Judge's CUT Fitness
If you’re in Orange County, give the gift of fitness by providing a loved one with a gift certificate to Judge’s CUT Fitness (a gym). Just play this card carefully, as some might (rightly) see this as an offensive gift (so maybe just gift it to yourself).
Sonja Morgan's Toaster Oven — NOT
I tried, I really did… But Morgan never made the toaster oven happen, unfortunately. Just stick to your Bed, Bath & Beyond toaster oven and maybe just slap on a picture of Morgan for laughs.
