If there was ever a television theme song to highlight the beauty of friendship, there’s no question that The Golden Girls would hold the top spot. The iconic quartet of rambunctious retirees has been treating audiences with the gift of feel-good entertainment for nearly 40 years. Even after the passing of our beloved Golden Girls – most recently the incomparably brilliant Betty White – the show still has a stronghold over pop culture and an entire generation’s perspective on what it means to say, “Thank you for being a friend”. Whether they’re as sarcastically brilliant as Sophie, practically sensible as Dorothy, aspire to dress and play like Blanche, or delightfully naive and funny like Rose, there’s a Golden Girls gift for all of them.
Here are 10 Golden Girls gifts to share and say thank you for being a friend:

Wine is known for being a girl’s best friend. Why not gift your best friend a wine glass reminder to live their life like it’s golden? The stemless ergonomic design fits in their hand as they lounge on the couch after a long day and enjoy a nice glass of wine (or whatever they’d like). The broad base keeps the glass durable and prevents spillage when they’re being more playful than sensible. Make it a true Golden Girls night and watch some reruns and drink some wine together.
If you want to give a simple gift that lets your friend know just how much you care with The Golden Girls You Are My Golden Girl: Fill-In Book.

This retrofit cotton blend t-shirt is perfect for the friend that loves comfy clothes but has a flair for sass and drama like the Sicilian-born queen of sarcasm OG Golden Girl herself, Sophia Petrillo. This shirt is from one of Sophia’s most famous lines in the show – “Picture it…Sicily, 1922” – and is perfect to wear any season. The shirt comes in pink, blue, or dark gray and has a responsive customer service number to ensure they have the right fit for their new favorite shirt.
This distressed hat with a criss-cross ponytail mesh back is perfect for the Golden Girl in your life who likes to protect herself from those golden UV rays. It comes in three different styles – one referencing the Shady Pines Retirement Home, another in honor of Sophia’s iconic line from the show ‘Picture It..Sicily…1922’, and the last with a little tongue-in-cheek humor of ‘Straight Outta Shady Pines’. There are ten color variations with a ragged patch cut, frayed, secured by hand with a professional-grade sealer, and a snap or velcro closure.
If you grew up with a friend who loved Legos, this is the perfect way to remind them how much fun it was to be a kid.
