This cute vintage-retro inspired mug with a rainbow design from Truffle Shuffle is a great pick for any Drag Race fan who also really loves their caffeine. The unspoken energy this mug gives off is very ‘don’t even think about speaking to me before I’ve had my coffee’. Hopefully the recipient is more likely to celebrate you with a ‘shantay, you stay’. Plus, 10% of the proceeds from the sale of this mug go to Stonewall, helping to support LGBTQIA+ people across Britain and the rest of the world.

Keep the wise words of Mama Ru with you everywhere you go. Containing the fiercest words of advice from the high queen herself, this little pink book of tips about love, life, glamour, performance and being a bad bitch is a thoughtful gift for any Drag Race fan who might be in need of a little bit of reassurance every once in a while.
