Monday nights. Wine. Screaming at your TV. Endless debates over who’ll get the rose. If you’re a member of Bachelor Nation, you know this drill all too well. After 23 seasons, it’s a wonder we all still watch, but something about the drama, amazing dates and the possibility of finding love sucks us in time and time again.
I’ll never forget my first experience with the Bachelor. I was 8 years old, and my mom and I cuddled up on the couch to watch Trista and Ryan’s wedding. My mom was so excited. It was the TV event of the year. Trista looked like a princess in a giant poofy white dress and Ryan was her actual prince charming.
We oo-ed and ahh-ed for three hours straight and ate popcorn (no wine for this third grader). It was a bonding experience over a silly TV show, but now, 15 years later, I still think about that day with a smile.
And over the next 15 years, The Bachelor became a joint obsession for my mom and me. We always make sure to watch together when we can, and when we can’t, weekly check-ins are a must. This silly little TV show has become a way for mother and daughter to stay connected even though we’re miles apart.
So for those of you who are trying to think of a perfect gift for the Bachelor lovers in your life (especially with Mother’s Day right around the corner!), look no further. We especially love the adult coloring book you’ll see down below…
The Bachelor candle
If this candle has the scent of one-on-ones, never being blindsided, and the final rose all rolled up into one, it must smell like actual heaven. Regardless, any Bachelor lover will love it for its clever packaging and all-natural materials.
This throw pillow turns any normal couch into a Bachelor viewing party couch.
The Bachelor bingo cards
Make Bachelor lovers’ viewing parties the best in town with these silly Bachelor bingo cards. Each space is filled with a Bachelor cliché or trope. Up the stakes by letting whomever wins keep the leftover wine.
The Bachelor-themed coloring book
Dubbed “the most dramatic coloring book ever,” this best-selling book is definitely one of our favorite items on the list. All of the seasons are represented with pictures of your favorite cast members and villains, quotes and dates, plus there’s the Bachelor mansion. So freakin’ cute.
The Bachelor cheeseboard
If there’s one thing that goes perfectly with wine and The Bachelor, it’s some good cheese. And any viewing party host will love serving it on this cheese board engraved with arguably the most iconic Bachelor quote, “Will you accept this rose?”
Finishing up our list of best gifts for Bachelor lovers, of course, a Bachelor-themed wine glass. Because really, what is The Bachelor without a tall glass of red wine? This glass reminds everyone around to shut their mouths and listen to the TV because The Bachelor is on.
