Although the concept of time is feeling more abstract than usual (thanks a lot, Covid-19), the season of gift giving is fast approaching and your true crime pals deserve the best trinkets that Etsy can provide! But what if your friends are a unique bunch with very particular tastes? Have no fear, this gift guide is sure to satisfy each and every one of the true crime lovers in your life.
The Cottage Core Comrade
For the person that listens to Taylor Swift and is always wearing a cardigan, but also can’t stop watching the latest true crime documentary on Netflix.
The Cheeky Card Connoisseur
We all have that one friend whose cards are always right on the nose, and now you can give them a taste of their own true crime medicine!
The “Rosé All Day” BFF — But Make It Spooky
Is it wine or coffee in that mug they’re always sipping on? Does it matter? This pal is certainly too cozy on the couch to care. Refill, please!
. . .Let’s be real, you want the wine glass too:
The Planner Pal
How is it that they’re always so on time? Well, having an assortment of calendars and kitschy stickers certainly might help. . .
The Podcast Savvy Soul Mate
You and your fellow Murderino communicate almost exclusively via My Favorite Murder quotes and always have a new true crime podcast to recommend. Why not show the world just how important your friend and your podcast idols are to you. Bonus: you can split these gifts up for a cute little BFF moment! It’ll be like those heart-shaped “Best Friends Forever” necklaces from middle school, but all grown up.
The Coolest Kid on the Block
They’re quirky, they’re edgy. . . they just aren’t like other people. So, you better get them something that no one else will have (this statement is most true when your pal is self-isolating at home and no other MMNsters can flex on them)!
True Crime Sticker Pack (perfect for laptops):
The DIY Home Detective
Did your friend grow up with the dream of embodying Nancy Drew or one of the Hardy Boys? With these gifts, they can rest assured that a dream deferred does not dry up like a raisin in the sun! Instead, your pal can “solve” some of the most infamous crimes themselves!
Does your pal align with one or more of these categories? Feel free to mix and match these ideas to create the ultimate gift set!
