5 Birthday Present Ideas for the True Crime Junkie

One of the girls in our My Favourite Murder Group had her birthday this week and I decided to pick out 5 presents which we (mostly me), true crime junkies, would love to find under the wrapping paper on our birthday.

Vintage Police Notebook

All true crime junkies dream of the day when they solve a cold case or a mysterious disappearance. Listening to Murder Squad, doing Google searches and waiting for a pattern to jump at you from looking at your searches, or maybe trying to crack the unsolved Zodiac Killer cyphers? This notebook might be the extra inspiration you needed.

Price: £6.00 and free delivery in the UK

Any Murder Squad Themed Present

My browsing through Etsy led me down the rabbit hole and I found some very interesting items relating to my new favourite podcast, The Murder Squad with Jensen and Holes. I would be lying if I would say that I don’t have a crush on these two fine gentleman with their huge knowledge and their desire to find the thruth, throw the bad guys in prison and get justice for the victim’s families.

You can find stickers, cross stich kits and even candles with their faces. At True Crime Idol Candles from every purchase 2 dollar goes towards the End The Backlog initiative which is absolutely awesome!

Billy Jensen and Paul Holes Cross Stitch Kit

Sassi Stitch Boutique has tons of modern designs – quite a lot with My Favourite Murder quotes as well, but these two side by side designs are absolutely hillarious. You can get all the designs as a kit or as just a downloadable design.

Billy Jensen and Paul Holes Stickers

Burnin’ for Billy or Hot for Holes? Pick your team and shop the holographic stickers on EwingsDesignArt on Etsy. There are also tons of My Favourite Murder inspired stickers too so worth ordering a bunch for £2.54.

Murderino Assymetrical Knife Earrings

I absolutely love assymetrical earrings and there is nothing more fun than shocking people with some of your accessories. I have a bloody meatcleaver handbag which this would match perfectly.

Price: £10.00 and free delivery in the UK

Lake Sammamish Mug

I’ve seen a couple of brilliant mugs – mostly loving the snarky Jeffrey Dahmer ones, but I don’t think I would get away with that in the office. This one is more subtle and you won’t be reported to HR while it’s quite likely that other murderinos will spot it and you find your office tribe where you can talk about serial killers as much as you want!

Price: £16.91 and free delivery in the UK

Mother’s Day Gifts for the Mum Who Loves Wine

Mother’s Day is upon us and this year it’s different. So what should you get for your mum, who loves wine if you can’t take her out for a Mother’s Day lunch this year? You might not even get to see her this year, so why not deliver something to her place.

Wine Bottle Glass

I mean, the only question is – why don’t I have one of these? Seems very practical for the time when you don’t want to get up for another glass of wine…

Wine Bottle Glass £12.00

A Fancy New Bar Cart

Now I know, this is a little expensive, but you did save money on not taking her out for a fancy lunch and you know your mum deserves something nice. Just think about how happy it will make her to look at it every time or tell her friends that she got it for Mother’s Day!

Vintage Style Bar Cart £74.95

Gift Vouchers, so she can stock up on wine

Sure, a voucher isn’t the most thoughtful gift, but we all fall into online shopping in the past few weeks, it would be nice to spend some credit. It fits every budget and she can finally stock up her wine selection to survive the next few weeks of crazy we are facing. Or gin selection, because sometimes you need something stronger.

Wine Tote Bag

I’ve talked about the tote bag before, but I think this is the perfect present for the whole family, including my mum who does enjoy a glass of wine in nature. It looks great, available in multiple colours and fits two bottles.

Insulated Wine Tote Carrier £19.99

nsulated Wine Tote Carrier - 2 Bottle Portable Padded Versatile Wine Cooler Bag for Travel, BYOB Restaurant, Wine Tasting, Party, Dinner, Great Wine Lover Gift, Khaki
