When Dan Levy got together with his father, Eugene Levy, to create the Canadian comedy Schitt's Creek, neither knew it would be arguably the biggest hit of their careers (so far). The show started modestly on the CBC in Canada, with secondary airings on the little-noticed Pop TV in the United States to follow. But by 2020, the show was a downright phenomenon, especially after its final season swept the Emmys and hit Netflix. If you have a Rose family superfan in your life, these Schitt's Creek gift ideas are exactly what you need to give a present that is "simply the best."
The best way to shop for clothing and knickknacks when it comes to TV fans is to think a bit outside the box. There's always the obvious choice of getting stuff branded with the Schitt's Creek logo. But for hardcore fans, especially those of shows that started with cult followings like Schitt's Creek did, it's best to aim for something that isn't immediately recognizable to those who don't watch. When it comes to comedy, in-jokes are not just funny, but also a sign of solidarity. With that in mind, here are 10 items your favorite Schitt's Creek fan will find hilarious:

1. Rose Apothecary Sweatshirt
Case in point for going for the in-fandom item: this Rose Apothecary sweatshirt. Fans will squeal with delight to be wearing a shirt advertising David and Patrick's general store, while non-fans will never know it's referencing a TV show.
2. David's Pink Bike Tote
Everyone needs tote bags, and having one that's as sassy as Stevie is even better.
3. "Fold In The Cheese" Apron
Kitchen gear is always popular during the holidays. There are tons of spatulas that say "Fold in the Cheese" and plenty of "Ew, David" mugs. But this apron manages to combine two Schitt's Creek catchphrases in one.
4. David's Sunglasses
For those looking to dress like David Rose, his oversized white-framed sunglasses are a must-have. This version, appropriately named the "Elton" for Elton John, are fabulous — and fabulously priced.
5. "It's My Turn To Take A Selfish" Wineglass
David's brutally honest quote, "It's my turn to take a selfish," was an instant classic the first time fans heard it. Now, you can get real about your wants and needs too.

Straight from the official Schitt's Creek store, it's a t-shirt welcoming everyone to live in Schitt's Creek. A must-have for those who have been watching the show since the first season aired in 2015, when the Rose family first arrived in town.
