Unwrapped: The Best Gifts For Your True Crime-Obsessed Friend


You got this, killer

'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month (31 days!) in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.

The true crime lover isn't a difficult creature to please around the holidays. There are hundreds of excellent true crime books, some of which are included here, to please your ~murder-loving~ BFF/sister/co-worker. But what if you want to get a little more creative? We all love to read (right??), but when the weather is nice—or extra rainy and dark and spooky—it's fun to get out and engage with true crime stories IRL (hopefully, not currently ongoing true crime, though).

With that said, I've done a little research, consisting of very weird and questionable Google searches as well as input from my beloved murderino community, to compile this strangest of gift guides for your most morbid friend. Who knows, maybe in the process, you'll become a murderino, too! Stranger things have happened.

This fantastic, on-the-nose sweatshirt from My Favorite Murder podcast team is perfect for signaling to other murderinos that you’re one of them. To be honest, it’s also good for just about anyone who’s tired of toxic masculinity.

My Favorite Murder, Toxic Masculinity Hoodie, $45, available at My Favorite Murder.
