The Best Gifts For TV Fans

In an age of endless content, it’s easy to become a little obsessed with TV

However, some of us love television more than others (some of us even write about it for a living, just saying). While your loved ones may occasionally ditch you to catch up on The Good Place, there is some good news. Come Christmastime, their passion for TV makes them easy to shop for.


Instead of browsing department stores for the best-smelling candle or shipping them off a cookie bouquet and calling it a night, give your TV-loving friends something that respects their desire to fry their eyeballs while watching the small screen. 

There are many gifts perfectly curated to their passion. Some of these presents might get your loved one off the couch and away from Hulu, even with more episodes of The Handmaid’s Tale on their queue. Others enable their obsession, making it easier than ever to catch up with the drama of Gilead. Either way, you’ll be the favorite gift-giver of the year for respecting what they love so much. Blessed be the tube.
