TVLine's Holiday Gift Guide: Grimm Tidings
Choosing holiday presents for your friends and loved ones can be a pretty Grimm proposition, but TVLine is here to help you out!
We know how much you love your favorite shows, so we’ve looked to them for some Christmas inspiration. First up: NBC’s fractured fairy tale, Grimm.
Read through our picks, and then hit the comments with some of your own — as well as your suggestions of other shows with swag you covet!
KEEP WARM LIKE MONROE… | Even Blutbads can’t rely on their fur to keep them warm all winter, so Monroe’s a fan of this well-worn car jacket. Carhartt’s sherpa-lined Sandstone Ridge Coat ($130, Carhartt.com) offers a similar look and feel and is as suited to jumping into a melee with bad-intentioned Wesen as it is to hanging back and letting Nick do the dirty work.
… AND KEEP TIME LIKE MONROE, TOO | Ladies (well, Rosalee at least) go cuckoo for guys with big clocks, so why not impress your honey with this intricate timepiece? Monroe’s antique version had quite the pedigree; this newer model ($229.99, Sears.com) is a little more affordable but just as charming.
GET COMFY AND CASUAL WITH NICK | When you’re trying to rid Portland of scary bad guys with sharp teeth and claws, every day is Casual Friday. Throw on a double-knit henley ($34.95, Gap.com) under your leather jacket, and you’re more than ready for a research session with Monroe, a door kicking-in with Hank or a night spent sleeping on the trailer’s couch.
COOK LIKE JULIETTE | Kinda cheating on the guy who loves you, but kinda not — because you can’t really remember him anyway? No worries! Sublimate your guilt and anxiety with a long session in the kitchen, perhaps whipping up a nice chicken cilantro tagine… or maybe just some Christmas cookies. Make sure to tie on something like this vintage muslin floral embroidered apron ($15, Etsy.com) because channeling your inner Barefoot Contessa — much like navigating your love life — is a messy thing.
TAKE IT ALL OFF LIKE RENARD | One reason Renard is such an effective captain and such a take-charge royal bastard (what? It’s true!) is his attention to detail. When writhing on the floor as a result of the purity potion, did you see even one hair on that strapping chest? Heck no — probably because the Hexy guy goes completely bare with the help of a body waxing kit like this one ($24.90, Amazon.com). Think about it: After you’ve systematically ripped off all your chest fur, strip by strip, vomiting some black smoke is NBD.
GLASS UP THE JOINT LIKE ROSALEE | Grimm‘s resident mix-mistress has an impressive collection of bottles, vials and jars — all neatly labeled (though sometimes Monroe doesn’t read them closely enough). Get your own Spice Shop — or maybe just a friend’s kitchen spice rack — started with these sweet corked numbers ($7.19, Amazon.com).Follow @kimroots
