Full disclosure, pop culture junkies are my peeps. I am a self-confessed, unapologetic pop culture junkie so writing about pop culture gifts is a little personal. I’m a member of many fandoms too. While science fiction or space fantasies – like Star Trek, Dr. Who, or Star Wars – have never been my thing, I get it. I respect the passion of their fans. We have created many different gift guides, but I can’t lie there was a bit more of a pep in my step when doing this one (and the one for RuPaul’s Drag Race fans).
So, apologies if none of these gift items are a part of your fandom(s) or the fandom(s) you are buying for- I encourage you to find the perfect fan merch though. There is nothing like receiving a gift that speaks to your fandom. Oh my gosh. It’s like having your very own Sally Field at the Oscar moment.
Pop Culture Gifts for the Pop Culture Junkie in your Life
This new LEGO Ideas set is a recreation of Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, the meeting ground for him, his friends and…Newman. The model is, in fact, a LEGO set of the set in which the show was filmed, so there’s a whole meta-story going on too, and the design team have packed it with as many authentic details as they could to remind you of all the absurd, unsentimental, amoral, and brilliant moments from the show.
Harry Styles is still the perfect angel we wrote about at The Grammy’s and during his Love on Tour. Getting anything Harry-related for a Harrie (that’s what his fans are called), is always joyous. It doesn’t even matter if they already have it. They are just as happy to have 2. Trust me. I know what I’m talking about. Treat People with Kindness is not only a song on Harry’s second studio album, Fine Line, but it’s how Harry encourages his fans to live their lives. It’s about how small changes can make a big difference.

Schitt’s Creek follows the trials and tribulations of the formerly wealthy Rose family, who are forced to relocate to Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once purchased as a joke. Now living in two adjoining motel rooms, Johnny and Moira Rose, along with their adult children, David and Alexis, must adjust to a life without money and with each other. Here we have everyone’s favourite cheese-folding duo, Moira and David, from their hilarious cooking scene in the episode ‘Family Dinner’. David is wearing his colourful apron and Moira is of course holding the bowl of grated cheese, which she expects David to “fold in,” since that’s what the recipe says!

Capitalize on trusty Café Tropical, or clean up in more ways than one at Rose Apothecary.

Imagine playing a round of Texas Hold ‘Em, but when you reveal your hand, there are the iconic smiles of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte, and Samantha, from TV’s Sex and the City! Well, imagine no longer–just pick up your set of Sex and the City Playing Cards. The hit romance-slash-comedy-drama, based on Candace Bushnell’s book of the same name, first aired in 1998. This deck of cards is a great gift for super fans of the show. Each suit celebrates a different character. Carrie is diamonds, Charlotte is hearts, Miranda is clubs, and Samantha is spades. Naturally, Stanford Blatch is the joker card.
I’m an English Lit major – what can I say? From all reports, William Shakespeare was a decent guy. He was generous, funny, and could drink with the best of them. But one thing you didn’t want to do is piss him off. Shakespeare was the Don Rickles of Elizabethan England – His brilliantly crafted insults and witty barbs could bring the fiercest soldier to tears. The Shakespeare Insults mug is covered with the Bard’s funniest and most biting insults from his plays. Some of our favorites are: “Oh gull, O dolt, As ignorant as dirt” “lump of foul deformity” “Thou art a boil, a plague sore” and the puzzling “Elvish-mark’d abortive, rooting hog.” All in all, there are 30 Shakespearian insults on the mug. So don’t be “light of brain” or a “beetle-headed flap-ear’d knave”.
We hope these pop culture gift ideas help make your holiday shopping a little less stressful. If you’re still unsure, check out our gift guide series for all occasions and tastes for something else.
