14 amazing Golden Girls gifts for the Dorothy, Blanche, Rose or Sophia in your life
Hearts across the world broke on the last day of 2021 after it was announced that icon Betty White had died.
The comedy legend and Golden Girls star passed away at the age of 99 and tributes poured in for the pioneering actor.
Fans celebrated her seven-decade long career, in particular one of her most iconic roles as Rose Nylund in The Golden Girls.
The hit series which ran for seven seasons in the late 1980s and early 1990s treated viewers to sharp jokes and an incredible all-female cast.
The programme also took a refreshingly progressive look at LGBT+ issues on television, which in turn paved the way for other comedy shows to follow their lead.
If you’ve always been a fan of the show, or you’re a first time viewer after it dropped on Disney Plus last summer, then you might want some The Golden Girls themed merch in your life.
Whether you want a print or mug for yourself, or you want to say “thank you for being a friend” to The Golden Girls fan in your life then there’s plenty of products to choose from.
