You have a podcast listener on your gift list and you don’t know what to get them. The only thing they ever seem to do is listen to podcasts or talk about podcasts. Short of buying them their own podcast, you’re not sure what to do. Let me first say that the internet is swimming with podcast t-shirts. If your gift recipient loves a podcast and wears t-shirts, then you’ve probably already got that sucker on order. If they’ve already bought the t-shirt or, unlike me, they prefer to dress like a grown-up, well that’s where this list might come in handy. Here’s a few fun gift ideas from some of the podcasts we love.
Apologies in advance to readers who are already celebrating Hanukkah. It’s never too early to start thinking about President’s Day gifts, though!
Your special someone has already become that creepy podcast person who talks back to podcasts and describes their favorite hosts as if they were friends. Why not embrace their creepiness and buy these pins of their favorite Earwolf hosts? At least now they’ll have a face to talk to.
Having difficulty this year finding just the right holiday card? I Seem Fun host Jen Kirkman has come to your rescue with her Deck the Haters Greeting Cards.
$12 for a five pack / $18 for a ten pack
I always enjoy giving my note-taker wife notebooks for Christmas. The problem is, the notebooks I usually get her are bland. Functional yes, but as plain as could be. Enter these notebooks, inspired by past 99% Invisible episodes. Leave it to Roman Mars to add a little form to this function.
$7 each ($20 for set of 4)
Welcome to Night Vale made the leap from audio to print this year with the release of a new novel based on the podcast.
$12.99 (Amazon Kindle)
If you have a TAH fan in your life who’s still blubbering over the end of their favorite podcast, this Mega Giftpack should shut them up for a while. The giftpack comes with a concert DVD, pins, a t-shirt, and a TAH comic book signed by the show’s creators.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the coffee/podcast lover in your life, could you do any better than the coffee the president drinks?! Actually, there’s no confirmation the president had a cup when he visited the cat ranch earlier this year, but no one says he didn’t! At the very least, it’s touched the lips of the great Marc Maron, and isn’t that enough?
Finally, a jersey that says, “I listen to delayed-tape broadcasts of rec-league basketball games!” You can now throw that LeBron James uniform in the garbage. Go Shrimps!
These little beauties from The Nerdist will allow you to enjoy your podcasts (and your burrito) without having to worry about snagging your earrings on your headphones.
I’m a sucker for a good pun, so when I saw these “Third Coasters” from Third Coast Festival, I had to include them on the list. Don’t just put your drink anywhere while you listen to podcasts, treat your glass’ bottom to a coaster from the curators of high-quality audio.
