‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ to ‘GLOW’: Gifts Inspired by Iconic Movies and TV Shows of 2018


2018 offered a plethora of amazing movies and TV shows! 

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper made us weep and sing along as Ally and Jackson in A Star Is Born, while the fearless ladies of GLOW had us binge-watching the second season in a day. 

Thus, we couldn’t help but make a gift guide inspired by the characters that won over our hearts this year. So if your loved ones are obsessed with film and television as much as we are, we guarantee they’ll adore our selects. 

Allow them to channel the iconic characters of 2018 with our curated lineup of gifts ahead. 

A Star Is Born

Give the exact cool-girl, chained pinstripe pant worn by Gaga’s character Ally as she belted “Shallow” in the standout film to wear with a cropped tee. For the man who digs Jackson’s (played by Cooper) low-key, rustic style, a corduroy trucker jacket will become his everyday staple.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Amazon’s hit show recently dropped its second season following Rachel Brosnahan’s Emmy win for her performance as Miriam “Midge” Maisel in September. Her 1950s ensembles are never short of color and polish. A bright A-line midi and structured clasp bag are pieces that stand the test of time.

Black Panther 

The Marvel blockbuster immediately became a smash hit and a cultural phenomenon with its cast of all-black leads. The film celebrated African culture, and the costumes did not disappoint. Their jewelry was especially eye-catching thanks to Douriean Fletcher who designed the stunning Afro-futuristic baubles. Nab Fletcher’s special-edition Black Panther bracelet or a fierce pair of earrings from Akola, handcrafted by Ugandan women living in poverty. 100% of revenue is invested in helping these women transform their families and communities.
