David Lynch and Mark Frost’s cult '90s series, Twin Peaks, drew in some serious fans when it first aired in 1990 on ABC, and despite being canceled after just two seasons, a small group of ardent fans have persisted throughout the years following its cryptic ending in 1991, keeping the show on the radar. When it was released on Netflix in the 2000s, a new generation of millennial viewers tuned in for the campy aesthetic and tawdry horror-meets-soap opera-inspired tropes.

Now, with the long awaited third season, The Return nearly halfway through, there are plenty of new fans who may or may not have even seen the original series, but fell victim to the show’s uncanny world in the new Showtime version.

Given Twin Peaks: The Return’s rocky start following the revival announcement in 2014, the fact that the third season even made it into production is reason enough to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than with some Twin Peaks-inspired merch? It’s easy to find mass-produced Twin Peaks shirts, but we’ve found some unique gift ideas for the Twin Peaks fan in your life that they probably haven’t seen before.

Angelo Badalamenti worked closely with Lynch on the soundtrack for both the series and the film sequel, 1992’s Fire Walk With Me. Badalamenti’s eerie score adds to the cinematic quality of the show, but his chilling compositions are just as moving when listened to outside the show’s context. This record comes in director-approved sleeve notes and a wall artworthy cover. You can also find it on CD and MP3 .
