Gift ideas for reality TV show fans or yourself— updated for 2023!

It wouldn’t be Christmas without some craven consumerism, so here’s my contribution to holiday magic: a bunch of ideas of gifts for reality TV fans—or for yourself—whether they love Love Is Blind, Vanderpump Rules, The Real Housewives, Survivor, RuPaul’s Drag Race, or The Great British Bake-Off.

I’ve updated this list for 2023, adding some really fun new things. I also confirmed that, as of this update, everything is in stock.

How I chose these items

Everything on this list was hand-picked by me; they’re not ads (though ads may appear on this page to make things confusing!).

I own some of these, but not all, so YMMV. Most are not products that have appeared on reality shows, such as Shark Tank products, but are instead are reality TV-themed items.

Some are ironic; some are iconic. And most of them can be at your doorstep quickly, thanks to the magic of quick, free shipping and all the people who are suffering to make that possible.

I’ll keep updating this list, so check back—or send me suggestions! And if you end up buying anything I’m recommending here, you’ll get the thing and, in some cases, I may receive a small commission, so we all win. Happy shopping!

Andy-I would love to read an interview with Mike White if you haven’t done one yet. I thought he was a great Survivor player and now I am loving the White lotus and everything about it. The music, the casting, his writing/directing. Thanks!
