Let’s face it: you either love it or hate it! Yes, it’s Love Island, the mega-hit TV series that follows a bunch of people on an island, filmed all the time, and making rather large fools of themselves. When it was first shown in the UK, many years ago, it instantly became a cult hit, and these days it draws in audience numbers that simply have to be seen to be believed. In fact, sometimes the series itself has to be seen to be believed, as do the contestants.

The premise is simple: the contestants have to pair up with someone else on the first day, for whatever reason they choose, and across the way they are given the opportunity to change their partner, or to stay with them. The idea is to last longer than anyone else, and to win the massive cash prize. It’s at once curious, fun and often grimace-inducing, but that’s the beauty of it. There is no doubt that, no matter whether you get annoyed at it or actively enjoy it, Love Island has a certain appeal: after all, who doesn’t like watching someone else come across as an idiot?

That’s the crux of reality TV shows: you like some of the characters, and you dislike others – much as in real life, but from the comfort of your armchair. Such has been the success of the show, which has aired for the past three years with great audiences, that an entire industry of merchandise of different types has come to be, and some of it is great fun. We reckon the Love Island fanatic in your family or circle of friends would love some of these items, so here’s our review of the top 10 best Love Island gift ideas available right now.

The Top 10 Love Island Gifts

1: ‘100% My Type on Paper’ T-shirt

One of the most appealing aspects of Love Island, and of other reality TV series like it, is that the competitors are ‘ordinary’ people. They are hand-picked to be, should we say, entertaining, and as such are bound to give us some highly amusing moments, not least in what they say. Browse the internet, and you will find entire websites dedicated to Love Island quotes, memorable utterances from the competitors, and some are very funny indeed – albeit not intended to be.

This T-shirt is emblazoned with the slogan ‘100% My Type On Paper’ which is directly inspired by the series. It’s a quality, 100% cotton T-shirt – one for the ladies – with a screen-printed slogan and comes in a full range of sizes to suit everyone. It has a round collar and a casual fit, and is a very nice gift for the Love Island fan in your life. At around £7 it’s also a cheap one, so catch it while you can!

Pros
  • Fun
  • Many sizes
  • Quality cotton
  • Easy fit
Cons
  • None

2: Love Island Water Bottle Name Decal

The Love Island craze has gripped the nation – really, it has – with young and old alike getting into it, and the upshot has been some very impressive and hugely innovative gift ideas. Whether you are buying for a woman – who make up the majority of the audience – or a man, or even a child, there is plenty to choose from, and the innovative minds of product designers have clearly been at work with this name decal for applying to bottles.

The default colour is pink but you can request others, and the name decal itself measures 3cm in height so is nice and easy to read. You can order any name and they will deliver, and the decals are suitable for applying to most bottles. Note there is not a bottle included, but you can add one to your order if you wish. Price for the decals alone is a couple of quid with free delivery, so a great gift for the kids.

Pros
  • Any name
  • Choice of colours
  • Large type
  • Easy to apply,
Cons
  • If you want a name decal, none really

3: Muggy Mug and Coaster Set

If you are a Love Island fan, you will be well and truly down with the lingo, and Muggy Mike has become something of a legend. Now, what does ‘muggy’ mean? To you and me, it’s a term used to describe a certain type of weather, but to the Love Island aficionado, it is acting very much out of order when on the island! Muggy Mike got his name from another competitor; do you know someone who is also muggy?

If so, you might want to give them this fun and unique mug and coaster set, emblazoned with the legend #MUGGY, in a choice of colours, and rather good fun! It’s a decent quality mug, too, so will be much-used for that morning cuppa, and at less than £7, it’s also good value, so go ahead, and get your muggy mate one of these for a laugh!

Pros
  • Love island legend
  • Quality mug
  • Great fun
  • Not expensive
Cons
  • Love Island Legend!

4: 100% My Type On Paper Mug and Coaster

If the above is best given to a man – perhaps one you know will take the joke – this one is for the woman in your life. It’s that famous ‘100% My Type On Paper’ quote again, and in pink, it really works on the plain white mug and coaster. Ok, so it’s just a mug, but it’s a Love Island mug, and will be treasured by the series fanatic!

There’s really not much more to say about this one except – go on, buy it, and give your girlfriend a laugh and a mug for her breakfast tea! At around £7, it’s decent value merchandise.

Pros
  • Love island quote
  • Decent mug and coaster
  • Great fun
  • Not expensive
Cons
  • Only for the Love Island fan!

5: Love Island Quote Hipster Fit T-shirt

Another one for the girls, and another one with a famous and familiar Love Island quote emblazoned across the front. It’s always a bit of fun to have a slogan on a t-shirt, and this one is not an exception! It’s the legend ‘I’ve Got a Text’ – which is inspired by a quote from the series but could easily be taken as just a simple joke – and it is presented on a grey, stylish t-shirt for ladies.

You get a choice of sizes – there’s one for everyone here – and a genuine 100% cotton t-shirt that has a conventional hipster fit. The t-shirt is fully machine washable, so you get a long life out of your Love Island merchandise, and it would make an excellent gift for a lover of the show. At under £8 it’s a bit of a bargain for a good quality t-shirt, too, so why not buy one for your loved one or family member?

Pros
  • Love island slogan
  • Fun and cheap
  • Quality cotton t-shirt
Cons
  • None

6: Love Island Absolute Melt Mug and Coaster Set

Here’s another mug and coaster – the same one as before, in fact, but with a different slogan from Love Island – and another great idea for a gift for a lover of the series. What is ‘Absolute Melt’ all about? Well, it can be taken in many ways, but we reckon in terms of Love Island, it was used to describe someone as a total idiot. That’s why this mug and coaster set makes a good present for a friend with a sense of humour!

So, it’s a mug, and coaster, with a Love Island slogan on it; it’s good fun and would make a great gift for a fan of the show, or for the idiot in your life! It’s around seven quid, too, so is not bad value at all, so off you go and buy one, and make an idiot happy!

Pros
  • Great gift
  • Love island logo
  • Quality mug &coaster
Cons
  • It’s a mug and coaster, so what cons can there be?

7: Custom Love Island Name Stickers

These name stickers will appeal to girls who want a bit of Love Island merchandise. They come in the famous trademark Love Island script and can be ordered for any name, and while they are default in pink, they can also be ordered in alternative colours if you wish.

8: Love Island Water Bottle

This is a nice gift for the Love Island fan: it’s a personalised water bottle, with the name in the familiar Love Island type of script. You can order any name you want, and you get a quality bottle and attractive name label. Now, think of the number of people who carry a water bottle: students, commuters, mothers with children – the potential is endless, and these bottles really would make a very nice gift.

These are the same bottles you see on the TV so are authentic to the show, and you get a choice of colours for your name label. A warning – these are not dishwasher safe, so should be washed carefully by hand, and they are not suitable for hot drinks, just cold. So, a great gift for a man, woman, oy or girl, and at not much more than a tenner, good value for such merchandise.

Pros
  • Love Island merchandise
  • Authentic bottle
  • Great colours
Cons
  • None

This is a great idea for lovers of the show who have an iPhone – a personalised Love Island iPhone case. It’s a quality case too, and can be personalised with any name in the stylish script and in pink. It’s a great gift for girls who love the show, and you get a choice of colours in addition to pink should you wish. A case will also help protect your phone, so it’s a nice idea too.

To get one, you simply order the product from the seller and then let them know the name and colour you want on it, and it will come to you complete and ready to use with the right name in the Love Island script on the back. At £10 it’s also great value for a quality phone cover, and it is available for iPhone’s 6 and 7.
