Have you ever wanted to put the best Black TV shows in a box and put them in Christmas gifts under the tree? Amazon has you covered!     Securing the perfect gift for your loved ones can be stressful. You want to get something they’ll actually use and enjoy but it can be extremely hard to predict what that thing might be. And let’s just be honest, with the hustle and bustle of life, most of us just don’t have the time and energy to give that type of close attention to more than one or two people. But if you still want to be thoughtful and make an impression with your gift-giving graces, I have a little tip for you.    Take it back to your shared interests. For the millennials, that might be the nostalgia. We just so happened to grow up at a time when Black entertainment had hit a sweet spot. The movies were iconic. The songs were classic and the television shows were and still are very beloved. Lean into that. Take your friends and family on a trip down memory lane with gifts that will have them filled with the type of warm fuzzies only childhood memories can bring. Let the best of the 90s sitcoms inspire your shopping list this season and check out these gifts from Amazon inspired by some of our all-time favorite Black TV shows from back in the day.   

You Go Girl! 90s Black Sitcom Coloring Book

  Adulting is hard. And sometimes we need to take it all the way back to the things that brought us joy during our childhoods. Enter coloring. It’s relaxing, it quiets the mind and at the end of it, you have a piece of art. Wins all around. There are tons of coloring books on the market but this one features Black women from our favorite sitcoms in addition to some cute activities as well. 

Martin Workout T-Shirt

  If you love a die-hard Martin fan (and it is one of the best Black TV shows of all time), you know that one of their favorite pastimes is quoting and even performing some of the show's iconic lines and hilarious scenes. With this t-shirt, featuring the hysterical workout scene, you can save them some of the trouble. 

African American College Alliance

  If you watched Black folk on television in the 90s, you couldn’t miss the African American College Alliance sweatshirts. They were fly and simultaneously promoted some of this country’s finest institutions for higher learning.  The designs still hold up today. Cop the hoodie or splurge on the full set.   

Urban Trivia Game

  Some of us take great satisfaction in knowing what we know. And then there are those of us who want you to know what we know. If you have a braggadocios know-it-all to shop for, this Urban Trivia Game is the perfect gift. They can play knowledgeable host and with debate questions, facts or cap and multiple choice, their guests might just have a good time too.   

All That Hockey Jersey

  Technically, Nickelodeon’s variety show “All That,” wasn’t a Black show. But let’s be honest, the Black cast members made the show the hit that it was. TLC sang the theme song. Many of the musical guests were Black artists. And the people with the biggest celebrity profiles these days are Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon. We all know Kenan and Kel were so popular they got their own spinoff show and a whole movie…that is in the process of being rebooted. You can celebrate this moment in time wearing a replica of Kenan’s classic Hockey jersey.   

A Different World

Who didn’t wish they had a chance to attend Hillman? Maybe it was just those of us who went to a PWI instead of an HBCU. But we won’t continue that argument here. Either way, you or your loved one can show their school spirit for the baddest fictitious university ever in this maroon zipper hoodie.  Veronica Wells-Puoane is a contributor for 21Ninety.
