10 ‘Golden Girls’ Gifts You Need in Your Life Right Now

Picture it, Sicily, 1922...

Tags:

It’s never the wrong time to give your friend (or yourself!) a little present, especially one that brings as much joy as The Golden Girls. And during a time when things seem uncertain, a little inspiration from Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sofia shouldn’t wait until a holiday or birthday — Golden Girls gifts can be given all year long!

Thanks to reruns, Hallmark Channel marathons, hilarious Betty White interviews, and an internet cult following (see: the Golden Girls Fashion corner blog) the ’80s hit sitcom has been making us laugh for decades.

Whether you’re gifting your girlfriend with a set of stemless wine glasses to remind her of Rose’s wacky St. Olaf’s tales, enhancing your favorite nook with a subtle piece of Golden Girls artwork, or growing Chia pet busts of the ladies to add to your Golden Girls shrine (don’t judge!), there is something for every type of fan.

Thank You For Being A Friend Coaster 4-Pack

$13.91, Redbubble

Why we like it:

  • High quality print
  • Works for hot and cold drinks
  • Independent artist designed, custom printed

Warning: A quick glance at these high-gloss coasters might get the iconic theme song stuck in your head and encourage a mid-day Hallmark channel Golden Girls binge (which sounds like a pretty good day to us!).

Promising review: “I was so happy with my coaster set that I bought a further three sets for family/friends. They look good and the quality is as I would expect. Great conversation starter.”

Golden Girls ‘Blanche’s Bedroom’ Throw Pillow

$30.67, Redbubble

Why we like it:

  • Subtle reference to your favorite show
  • Trendy print
  • Independent artist designed, custom printed

Blanche Devereaux’s bedroom is memorable for a lot of reasons (many of which I can’t write about here), but her iconic palm leaf wallpaper somehow perfectly matched her character’s vibrancy to the drama of ’80s decor. For those who don’t know that, this throw pillow is merely an artful addition to your sofa. For our fellow Golden Girls super fans, it’s a cheeky nod to the many, many exploits of Blanche.

Promising review: Didn’t know what kind of quality to expect. But this pillow is vibrant and well made! Looks great in my newly renovated bedroom. Thanks Redbubble and artists!”

Why we like them:

  • Iconic Golden Girls quotes
  • Great gift for friends
  • Sturdy with a chip-resistant edge

Who hasn’t said “Picture it, Sicily, 1922” over rosé with friends? Every single quote on these stemless wine glasses is iconic on its own, and guaranteed to bring laughter to your boozy Zoom brunch with friends.

Promising review: My friends and I call ourselves The Golden Girls. When I saw these, I had to buy them for us! They were packaged very well, and look exactly like the pictures show. I’m very happy, and my friends loved them! We’ve already had our wine together with them…LOVE!”

Golden Girls Chia Pets

$16.99 (was $19.99), Amazon

Why we like them:

  • Retro hobby doubles as decor
  • You can use multiple times
  • Collect them all!

It’s a simple craft with a big reward. Just buy one or all of the Girls’ Chia busts, soak in water for 30 minutes, and spread seeds everywhere you want hair to grow. Three seed packs are included with each Golden Girl, so you can wash and reapply as you wish. It only takes 1-2 weeks for each iconic perm to blossom.

Promising review: “This was a gift for a friend of mine and we have had the most fun watching Sophia’s hair grow!”

Wit and Wisdom of The Golden Girls

$11.69 (was $12.99), Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Great coffee table book
  • Includes iconic quotes from the show
  • Hilarious comic-style drawings

The Golden Girls have so many iconic lines. This book gathers them into one coffee table read, illustrated with hilarious drawings to properly set up your favorite zingers.

Promising review: My wife is a huge fan of The Golden Girls. I purchased this for her birthday. I find her reading it every night. I’ve even read it and found myself laughing out loud. It’s full of quotes from the show with illustrations and actual pictures taken from the hit TV show.”

Golden Girls Prayer Candles

$55, Etsy

Why we like it:

  • Handmade candles
  • 100 hours of burning per candle
  • Digital artwork is printed on high-quality, fade-proof vinyl

The Golden Girls shrines are a thing, and they don’t disappoint. These prayer candles make for a hilarious gift for those who “worship” the Girls and consider Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sofia the Patron Saints of Friendship.

$10, AlwaysFits.com

Why we like it:

  • Comes with a 32-page themed book
  • Backdrops of lanai and kitchen
  • Iconic show essentials (like cheesecake!)

This may seem like a simple gift, but just one glance at this The Golden Girls magnet set on your fridge will bring you instant joy. Position the magnetic Girls to display a scene on the lanai with wicker furniture, or around the kitchen table with half-eaten cheesecake. Added bonus: The set comes with a 32-page booklet dedicated to everything Golden Girls, from character profiles and quotes to full-color images.

Promising review: “I was super excited to get this magnet set. Huge golden girls fan. Super cute idea for any GG fan!”

The Girls “Stay Golden” Canvas Print

Starts at $53.73, RedBubble

Why we like it:

  • 4 sizes to choose from
  • Hand-stretched and printed
  • Independent artist designed, custom printed

Created by an independent artist, this high-quality print of The Golden Girls‘ hairstyles is abstract while paying homage to the show we all know and love. It’s minimalist design and multiple sizes ensure this hanging canvas will fit with any decor or theme, but we recommend a nice, prominent placement in your bedroom or office for an instant mood boost.

Promising review: “It’s so pretty and I just love looking at it on my wall. I love it, I love it!

Art of Coloring: Golden Girls

$9.48, Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Color your favorite Golden Girls scenes
  • Includes patterned pages
  • For all levels of artists

Adult coloring books are a big trend right now, probably because they’re great stress-relievers and allow you to stretch your creative muscles. This coloring book includes sketches from the show’s hilarious scenes (who can forget The Golden Girls hilarious adaptation of Henny Penny?) mixed in with ’80s-themed prints and patterns.

Promising review: I hate that feeling when you buy a Golden Girls coloring book, and only some of the Golden Girls are in it — they often leave out Blanche for some reason. At ease, soldier – all FOUR Golden Girls are prominently represented in this bad boy. You can’t go wrong – purchase it today.”

The Golden Girls: The Complete Series

golden girls gifts

$95, Amazon

Why we like it:

  • Every episode of the Golden Girls
  • 21 discs with all 7 seasons
  • Bonus cast interviews

The iconic sitcom ran from 1985 through 1992, producing 180 episodes over the course of seven seasons. This disc set includes them all, even the one where the Girls are hilariously arrested for prostitution on their way to a Burt Reynolds concert (a personal favorite).

Promising review: “…I love them! I found that the episodes on TV have cut out a lot, but these have all of it plus interviews with the girls several years after the show ended. If you are a fan then you’ll love this set.
