During the holiday season home-cooked meals and fancy restaurant dinners abound, but we can’t forget the fast food brands that have been by our side throughout the year. Whether it was value menu deals that carried us through the impacts of inflation or new menu items that made breakfast just a bit more convenient, fast food has played a big role in 2023. So there’s no shame in showing our dedication with some branded merch—and the holidays are the best time to pick up that drip for your loved ones or yourself. Here are some of the best fast food gifts we’ve seen this giving season.
7-Eleven Slurpee Pet Fleece with Bag
If you’re pet owner, Rover is most likely the one that keeps you company on your late-night trips to 7-Eleven. He probably doesn’t judge your need for a Slurpee at 11 p.m. on a Wednesday, and for that he deserves a cozy gift. This Slurpee Pet Fleece has a neon zipper bag attached to it so your buddy can bring any toy he wants along the ride. For $24 there’s somewhere to keep the poop bags and a stylish way to keep your bud warm.
Arby’s x Good Burger 2 Crewneck Sweatshirt
To promote the release of the Paramount+ movie Good Burger 2, Arby’s has launched a limited collection of merchandise, including this gray crewneck sweatshirt. Those looking for some ’90s kid nostalgia can drop $50 on this splashy design, whose google-eyed burger and retro fonts will back memories of being welcomed to Good Burger, the home of the Good Burger.
Chipotle ‘Extra’ Necklace
Chipotle diehards are well aware that guacamole always costs extra, but the guac is so essential that they don’t mind shelling out. If you or the person you’re gift shopping for holds that same attitude and love for Chipotle, then spending $135 on this sterling silver necklace could be the right move. Sure, the price is definitely steep for fast food merch, but sometimes being a little extra is the way to go.
Jimmy John’s Pickles Sweatshirt
The best fast food merchasndise isn’t about slapping a brand’s logo on every inch of the product. It’s about showcasing what that brand does best and giving people a chance to show their love for it. This $50 Pickles Crewneck from Jimmy John’s does just that. The simple sweatshirt gets straight to the point and has a small JJ on the wrist to remind people that Jimmy John’s offers deliciously massive pickles alongside its sandwiches.
Panda Express Baby Onesie
The best way to make your kid a fan of orange chicken is to start ’em young. This adorable onesie from Panda Express sells for $15 and is available in 6-,12-, and 18-month sizes. The smiling little takeout box accompanied by the text that reads “Take Me Out!” will not only make a baby that much cuter, it will also remind a busy parent to take a moment and go out for a well-deserved lunch every once in a while.
Sonic Ketchup and Mustard Jumpsuits
Described by the brand as “Corn dog couture,” these Ketchup and Mustard Pajama Jumpsuits are selling on the Sonic Swag Shop for $45 each. These jumpsuits will either test the limitations of your partner’s love for you or show the world that you two go together like condiments on a corn dog. Either way, this is your chance to be cozy all throughout the cold winter months ahead.
Taco Bell Hot Sauce Packet Blanket
Want to feel the heat of Taco Bell’s hot sauce packets from head to toe? This Ultra Plush Hot Sauce Packet Blanket will bring that heat to your whole body for $35. Considering the fact that the fleece throw’s design reads “HOT” and “I’M YOUR MAIN SQUEEZE,” we wouldn’t recommend giving this to Grandma. But, then again, if grandma loves a beefy melt burrito smothered in hot sauce, we could be wrong.
White Castle Holiday Snow Globe
Nothing screams holiday season like a crystal clear, magical snow globe. Just picture those glittery bits swirling around the miniature white pillars of your favorite slider spot. Yes, for $20 you can gift a wintery White Castle wonderland to someone special.
