:: The Lorelei Gilmore-esque Christmas Gift Guide

December 15, 2014

I am obsessed with Gilmore girls. That’s a fact. I’m in Season Six at the moment and think that when I get to the end I am going to go back to the beginning and build some kind of Pip-GG-wiki (to rival the existing wikis!) and document all the bits I love about it the most, in one place.

I really don’t know when I’ve enjoyed a series this much. I love the cheesy-yet-clever spin the Ggs have on life. I love Sookie. I love Kirk. I love Lane. I love Luke. I love Mrs Kim. Gosh. I love Michel. Miss Patty. Emily. I could go on. I love Paul Anka the dog (esp when he’s the Doggy Swami or being afraid of peas!) I just love the non-schmaltzy feel-goodness of this show SO SO MUCH. It’s a great antidote to some of the shitty things that are going on in the world.

You know, if my blog was a TV Show I hope it would be HALF as ace as Gilmore girls. I like to think we have a similar silly/fun/caring/naughty backbone. Well. In my dreams. (Which don’t include Paul Anka!)

Following on from The Rory Gilmore-esque Christmas Gift Guide, I thought I’d make a little list for Lorelai too. I’m further down the track with the show for starters and I love the Mum that Lorelai Gilmore is. Where DID all the anvils go?





one: citrine necklace via Felisa Jewelry: because Liz and TJ and the Renaissance Fair
two: American Gigolo via here: because Lane’s Bachelorette Party
three: Peas plate via here: because Paul Anka The Dog
four: Yellow boots via Hunter: because ‘cute yellow boots!!’
five: Bananarama CD via here: because ‘Shy Boy’
six: Snowflake wedding band via Park City Jewelry: because ‘it’s snowing!’ and ‘June 3rd!’
seven: Coffee maker via Atomica: because COFFEE!
eight: Taco necklace via Lucy Folk: because tacos!!
nine: Martini mixer via Mood Indigo: because gin and green olives!
ten: Pippi Longstocking poster via here: because Pipppppiiii!!!!


Love to you guys on this weird Australian day. Hope you are okay.

x Pip

    Oh my gosh! I love that you are just as obsessed with this show as I am. I totally got all of your of your references. These gift ideas couldn’t have captured it any better! I have watched and rewatched the entire series more times than I can count.

    I bought the box set about four years ago and I have re-watched it at least once a year since. Sometimes twice. I pretty much know it by heart now.

    I LOVE Gilmore Girls too, I think they’re fab and I always feel like I’m a Gilmore Girl too when I’m watching.

    AND these gift guides have made me giggle & smile & think about rewatching for the … hundredth time (probs not, I’ve lost count)!
