There’s no doubt that BTS is one of the most well-known bands in the world. So odds are that there’s an ARMY (or a hundred) in your life that you’re in search of the best BTS gifts and merchandise for.
BTS debuted in 2013 under Big Hit Entertainment with their first song “No More Dream.” Since then the Bangtan Boys’ seven members—RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook—have become some of the most recognizable names in not only K-pop, but in music history. The Bangtan Boys have collaborated with Halsey, Steve Aoki and Nicki Minaj, and have performed at the Grammys, the American Music Awards and other award shows. In August 2020, BTS earned their first number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with their single, “Dynamite,” the band’s first song fully recorded in English.
“It’s not like our goal was to go to the U.S. All we wanted to do was show our performances to people who loved our music. Our goal at the start was never to get a Grammy. We’re just seven regular Korean guys who started to do what we really wanted to do, what we found fun, which was to make music. That led to where we are and who we are now,” Suga told Variety in October 2020.
Long story short, it’s BTS’ world, and we’re just living in it. Ahead are the best BTS gifts and merch to give ARMYs this holiday season (or any season, if we’ll be honest.) From BTS’ most recent albums to a wooden spoon with all seven members’ faces, these are the BTS gifts ARMYs will love.
BTS UNO is the classic UNO card game but instead of numbers the cards have the faces of each of BTS’ seven members—RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin V and Jungkook. The game—which has the same rules as the classic UNO—includes 108 giant cards for ARMYs to play with other fans.
Ever wondered what BTS smells like? This BTS-scented candle for ARMYs is sweet and perfect for the holidays (or any time, really.) The soy, sugar cookie-scented candle is handmade in Astoria, Queens, and burns for around 50 hours. The candle’s label features the silhouettes of BTS’ seven members, along with a cute description of how the scent is a mix of Tae (a.k.a. V), Suga, Kookie (a.k.a. Jungkook) and Mochi (a.k.a. Jimin).
