Holiday Gift Guide: What To Buy Your Favorite “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Queen

The best gifts for the ho ho hos in your life.

We’ve entered peak Christmas shopping season, folks—time to start making your list and checking it twice.

As usual, we’ve got Drag Race on the brain, so we thought we’d come up with some ideal presents for some of our favorite RPDR queens.

Katya 12 Days of Christmas

Use our tips to shop for the diva in your life. (And of course, grab copies of Christmas Queens and RuPaul’s Slay Belles for stocking stuffers!)


Type: Label queen
Detox might have some fake parts, but she makes sure her accessories are real: For the label queen in your life, consider the Coach Swagger 27 bag in metallic pebble leather, a steal at $450.

It’s the perfect present for someone who’s been really nice—or really, really naughty.


Pandora Boxx

Type: Gamer queen
It’s been while since Laura Croft has been in our lives, but she’s back in Rise of the Tomb Raider ($59.99).

What gaymer doesn’t love a powerful female protagonist? (Plus, she makes a great cosplay option when the convention comes to town.)

Jinkx Monsoon

Type: Theater queen
If you’re like us, you can’t wait for Jinkx to be on Broadway. But you can help the Jinkx in your life along with a Playbill novelty mirror ($39.95) that puts them on the cover of a program.

Manila Luzon

Type: Globetrotting queen
What do you get for the queen who’s constantly on the go? A way to make the journey better: Urbanears Wireless Headphones ($100) allow you to zone out crying babies, chatty Cathys and other noisy distractions for up to 14 hours before recharging.


You can even share your music with a friend or pick up an incoming phone call. And the removable headband and ear cushions can be tossed in with your laundry when they get a little rank.

Comes in sea grey, moss or bonfire orange.

Serena ChaCha

Type: Literary queen
Serena told us “to go pick up a book and read” and we can’t think of a better one give than Larry Kramer’s The American People: Volume 1: Search for My Heart.

Forty years in the making, it’s a sprawling (maybe even rambling) enterprise that ties together the origins of HIV, same-sex couples in the American colonies, 21st century sexual paranoia and a middle-class family trying to persevere.

Plus, at 800 pages, it makes a pretty substantial statement as a present.

Willam Belli

Type: Sloshy queen
We know Willam would be fine with a bottle of Robitussin and a swizzle straw, but Bulleit Bourbon is what all the cool kids are drinking.

The distiller’s 10-Yea- Old Reserve is aged in charred white oak barrels, giving it a smooth texture that’ll still put hair on your chest chin.

Stacy Layne Matthews

Type: Foodie queen
Hailing from Backswamp, North Carolina, this Season 3 queen knows her southern food. So don’t try to fool her with anything but the best—like a fresh dessert from Atlanta’s The Pie Shop, which ships anywhere in the U.S.

Fan favorites include Bourbon Pecan (above), Sweet Potato with Brown Sugar Streusel, Ginger-Molasses Chess, and Pecan-Topped Black Bottom Pumpkin Pie.


Type: Product queen
A makeup artist and stylist by trade, Season 3 winner Raja knows from skincare. So she would love Origins “Clear Improvement,” purifying charcoal body wash ($24).

Pair it with Origins’ Easy Slider pre-shave oil (with jojoba, sage, sandalwood, eucalyptus and peppermint) and your man will be fresh, cleaen and silky smooth all over.

Tammie Brown

Type: Kookie queen
If you’re walking children in nature, you should be keeping track of your strides. The FitBit Charge keeps counts of steps, calories burned, distance covered and more.


Choose from burgundy, blue, black or slate gray for $99.95
