12 Holiday Gift Ideas For BLINKs That Are Sweeter Than "Ice Cream"
It's officially gift-giving season! As people are scrambling to find last-minute presents for their loved ones, one surefire way to help clear their lists is if they have a BLINK in the family because they'll love anything to do with BLACKPINK. From posters and photocards, to albums and concert tickets, as long as Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rosé are involved, that's all that matters. Since there's so much merchandise of the group online, it can actually get overwhelming finding the perfect gift. If you're currently searching for the right present to get your loved one, here are 12 holiday gift ideas for BLACKPINK fans.
2020 has been an amazing year for BLACKPINK fans because the girls made three comebacks. In June, they dropped their smash single "How You Like That," and then just two months later, they returned with "Ice Cream," featuring Selena Gomez. After asking for a full-length album for so long, fans finally got BLACKPINK's debut LP, The Album, in October. For every comeback the girls had, more merchandise came pouring in. These 12 products — both official and fan-made — were some of the best that came out this year, so you'll definitely want to check them out.
