This gift guide was one of my favorites to compile because the 90s were one of my favorite decades. The music was great, the snacks were topnotch (yay Dunkaroos) and the television shows were some of the best. Remember TGIF? I used to look forward to watching that every Friday and wake up and catch some of my favorite cartoons on Saturday.
As far as music, I was a HUGE 90s bubblegum pop fan, particularly of *NSYNC. I used to sit down to record each and every show, performance, concert, and music video that would be shown. I had every album and would play it multiple times without getting sick of it. I collected magazines simply because their faces were on the cover and knew everything about them from their favorite colors to their favorite food. The obsession was REAL!
There were so many things to love about the 90s and oftentimes I find myself missing the things from that time period that I used to enjoy. If you or someone in your life loves all things 90s nostalgia, you’ll love some of the gift ideas we’d suggest!
FOR THE CARTOON LOVER:
🎄 Y’all know I love the ninja turtles and when I saw this pizza cookbook a few years back while on our anniversary trip to Cape Cod, it took everything in me not to purchase it.
