It's hard to believe that Parks and Recreation, the show brought Amy Poehler, Aziz Ansari, and Nick Offerman to our TVs each week, has been off the air for almost a whole year. For fans of the show, it was the unique quirks of each character that made every episode so entertaining to watch—which is why, as holiday season rolls around, they'll know exactly what's up when it comes to these themed Parks and Recreation gifts. From the manly, outdoorsy, meat-obsessed Ron Swanson to the suave, entrepreneurial, rap-lyrics-dropping Tom Haverford, everyone on the show had a recognizable personality that, in my opinion, practically begged to be turned into on-point presents.
So whether this Parks and Rec fan is all about the "treat yo'self" philosophy or is simply unerringly positive, there's a gift for every character they related to. The show will always hold a special place in the hearts of those who watched it, and Pawnee is where fans can always go for a light-hearted laugh with the hilarious cast of personalities. For those who miss hanging out in those government offices and catching glimpses of funny yet horrifying murals, here are nine Parks and Recreation-themed gifts to give to each kind of fans in your life.
