BEST GIFTS FOR THE MURDER-PHILE IN YOUR LIFE
We all have one. That friend who can recount the year that JonBenet was found in her parents' basement, where they were when the OJ verdict came down, and present all the evidence against Casey Anthony. You love them because they're your mother, your sister, your wife, you don’t want to get on their bad side because they understand the subtle art of antifreeze poisoning.
I think we can all agree that these folks are the ones we want to please this holiday season so here’s a list of great gifts your True Crime Fan would kill for! If you don’t get something off this list, it would be a real crime. (No, you’re right, that was an awful writing choice, but you have to understand that trying to write is murder.)
1. Tickets to CrimeCon
Buy now, prices go up after the 31st! I went. It was awesome. Read about it here.
While I’m no fan of prohibition, I am a big fan of bad ass bishes who carry hatchets to get their way. Carry A. Nations was known to f*** some shit up when it came to bars harboring dads who spent their paychecks on booze rather than feeding their children. This only proves men have been trash since the beginning of time.
These are delightfully illustrated and include puns. There is no way your murderphile won’t love them!
Exhibit on a wall or a buffet and remind your closest gal pals to Stay Sexy, Don’t Get Murdered.
These pens are so unique from the L.A. County Coroner’s gift shop, that you’ll never have to worry that they’ll go missing!
For real, don’t get this, but it’s too terrible not to share. Not only does it conveniently sit on your wrists, but it also comes in pink because, well, ladies get murdered a lot.
7. A gorgeous chiffon top
Featuring Dahmer, Gacy, Bundy, Kraft, Gein, and Heiren's adorable faces along with knives on it because that won’t make you look crazy.
8. Jim Jones Coffee Mug because c’mon!
For your folks who love to imagine what their body will look like should they be killed in a bath.
BONUS: A classic read from Ann Rule
Ann tells us all about her relationship with Ted Bundy - chilling, well written, and a book that any true crime fan should have in their library. (R.I.P. - we miss you, girl)
