It’s well-known that we like the band Phish. The thing about Phish fans is that we are everywhere and we love showing off our deep affection for the band. We’re pretty easy to spot as we’re usually rocking a t-shirt, hat, or anything with the famous donut theme from Jon Fishman’s moo-moo (he’s the drummer). Sasha has a donut-themed beach towel which is how we met one of our closest friends in Puerto Vallarta. She walked up and said “Hey, I love your towel!” and we’ve been besties ever since.
I’m sure you know at least one person who plans their travels around tour dates.
One of the best things about being a phan is the amazing community that comes with the package. The Phish phan base is passionate and many phans have used their creative skills to make all sorts of Phish-y products like jewelry, clothing, art, hand soaps, and more.
Gifts for Phish Fans
If you really want to impress your Phish-loving significant other, friend, or relative with a well thought out gift, get them something that helps them show off their affinity for the band. They’ll never forget where they got it. Every time a fellow phan throws them a compliment they’ll say, “Thanks! My [partner/sibling/parent/relative] got it for me as a gift!” Plus, you’ll be supporting a phan in their business endeavors. It’s a win-win!
So without further adieu, here are 50 awesome Phish gifts.

I think this is the most fun part of the gift. Presentation is everything! Get your loved ones excited and guessing what’s in the box with this Fishman donut wrapping paper.
Phish Gifts for the Home
Every Phish-loving homeowner enjoys decorating with a bit of Phish-y flare. We don’t own a home, but if we did it would be decked out to the nines with Phish gear.
There’s nothing we love more than going on Phish tour but for most phans, that’s just not an option. Fortunately, we have couch tour and what better to enjoy the live streams than resting on this awesome “couch tour” pillow? You better believe I will have this on my own couch someday!
Help the phans light up their home with this pretty light block that says “The light is growing brighter now,” from the song Light. They can use it for years by just replacing the light strand. I would love to have one of these in my home, if/when I have one.
Every home needs a doormat to welcome guests. Why not get this super cool doormat with the lyrics from “Cavern” that serve as important life advice. I also love this Fluffhead doormat or this one with the simple donut design.
With it being the holiday season, I’m naturally drawn to Christmas themed Phish gifts. This stocking is made with donut fabric and can be personalized to have that special persons’ name on it. Christmas ornaments are always a fun gift around the holiday season. It’s especially great if you have a phriendly gift exchange at your holiday party. I particularly like this one because of the font. This metal one is beautiful and the glittery green and red make it particularly festive.
Let’s not forget the kitchen! These donut design potholders are an awesome gift for Phish fans that love to cook. You can also help your loved ones remind everyone how much they love Phish with this mango-scented donut hand soap.
I love waking up in the morning and enjoying a good cup of coffee. My morning Java would be a lot better if I had a Phish mug to pour it in. I especially love this one that says “Have a cup of coffee and catch your breath,” from the song Fee and this one that says ” I was foggy rather groggy,” (how I feel in the morning) from Sample in a Jar. This mug with the donut design is also pretty sweet.
Wine stoppers are always good to have. Sometimes we like to enjoy a nice bottle of vino with our dinner. For the times we don’t drink the whole bottle it would be great to have this wine stopper that says “Keep what’s important and know who’s your friend,” from Theme From the Bottom or this one reminding you that “You got one life, BLAZE ON!” from Blaze On.
This wine tumbler with YEM printed in glittery letters is the perfect lot companion. It’ll keep your drink cold when you’re out wandering in the hot sun.
If your Phish-loving loved ones are anything like me, they mostly prefer strong, heady beers. The problem is that they’re not easy to get open. I fail at the lighter trick for opening beer bottles so I could really use this handmade bottle opener that says “Just one drink and I’ll fall down drunk,” from Loving Cup. I also really love this one that says “Surrender to the flow,” from Lizards.
Don’t forget the coasters! These wood burned coasters with the faces of the boys will keep all the furniture free of water rings.
Jewelry Gifts for Phish Fans
I love admiring the phan-made jewelry. You can tell a lot of time, effort, and love went into making them. These earrings are beautifully made of recycled leather.
Anything made with a sparkly donut will always be sure to catch the eye of a passing fan. These glittery donut earrings come with cute blue sequins attached to complete the donut color scheme. Or I’m sure any phan girl would love this sample in a jar glittery donut set that comes with a necklace, a pin, earrings, and two hair pins.
If you really want your friend to glow, get them these glow-in-the-dark cactus earrings.
I personally prefer wearing a necklace to earrings. This necklace is made of metal and says “Set the gearshift for the high gear of your soul” from Run Like an Antelope. It’s super cute and the metal piece is shaped like a guitar pick….. very rock n roll! This handblown glass pendant is absolutely gorgeous! The Phish logo is perfect and I especially love the gold wire wrapping.
You may have heard about Curveball, the epic festival that never happened. We were only three hours away when we heard the devastating news that it was canceled. Let’s pause for a moment of silence. I think this “Curvivor” bracelet would be the perfect commemoration to those who had the experience pulled right out from under them.
Accessories, Magnets, Bookmarks, & Misc. Gifts for Phish Fans
Fly sunglasses are a must-have on lot and for those times when Christ Kuroda (Phish’s lighting director) goes nuts with the lasers. I have been dying to get a pair of these sunglasses that can be customized with your favorite lyrics. If you don’t know your friend’s favorite lyrics, the donut design sunglasses are always a safe bet.
If your friends are big time travelers, this donut design luggage tag will help set their suitcase apart as belonging to the travelers with the best musical taste. I think it would make an amazing wedding gift. You could stuff it with cash and a note that says “First honeymoon round on me!”
Make sure your loved ones have the coolest phone cases around by getting them this Fishman donut phone case or this donut cactus combo phone case. I personally like the donut cactus one and plan to purchase the bikini of the same pattern for myself.
You may have heard your friends talking about how amazing the Phish Halloween run was this year. We were treated to a full suite of phresh tunes with silly lyrics. Help your friends remember the experience forever by giving them this magnet that says “I’m the glue in your magnet,” from the song We Are Come to Outlive Our Brains.
Speaking of Phish runs, the New Year’s run at MSG is quickly approaching! Get your friend this sequined donut headband to match the donut earrings and sunglasses I mentioned above. They will be stylin’ and – Woo! – profilin’! This headband is also super cute. It has the Grateful Dead dancing bears on top of a donut background.
Do your friends enjoy chilling out on the lawn at a Phish show? If so, this inflatable lounger with the donut design is one of the best Phish gifts. It’s also great for chillin’ on the beach or by the pool.
Inject a bit of humor into your Phish gifts by adding this set of bookmarks with a note that says “Read the f*cking book! READ IT!!!” Any hardcore phan should get the joke.
And finally, a sticker is always a great gift for Phish phans. Especially this one of Fishman twerking for the people – another hilarious moment from the 2018 Halloween run. This sticker of a Phish donut pizza is a pretty unique take on the design.
Can I just take a minute to say I’m honored to be surrounded by such talented people! In doing research for this guide, I came across so many beautiful pieces of art created by phans. I think all these works of art would brighten up any room and I will most certainly be ordering some when I have a wall to put them on.
Have you ever seen a setlist poster? They’re pretty cool. The artist paints a picture for each song of the setlist and the setlist posters from the 2018 Halloween run are pretty epic. These posters would be an awesome party conversation starter. You could easily make a game out of trying to figure out the song from the photos. I really admire the creativity that goes into these setlist posters.
I’m also a big fan of lyrics posters like this one with the lyrics from If I Could; a gorgeous song that gives you the best goosebumps. If your significant other is a phan that also loves travel, I think this poster with the lyrics from My Sweet One would bring a smile to their face. Or this poster with the lyrics from Tela would be great since they rarely play that song.
Every phan needs a memory box for their ticket stubs and other show memorabilia. This box is perfect for that and it has the colorful logo hand painted on the top. I love that this box has the lyric “I saw you with a ticket stub in your hand” from Golgi Apparatus. It’s basically a piggy bank for ticket stubs!
Bags & Totes
I love a good bag. Being on the go constantly means that I’m doing a lot of moving around. I need to get my stuff there with me somehow. Etsy is full of awesome bags like this cactus print tote bag. This “Bag it. Tag it.” Reba lyric bag is my personal favorite.
For frequent travelers, this leather travel case comes with an embellished cactus and metal guitar pin stamped with the “Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. Let’s get this show on the road!” lyric from AC/DC Bag.
Taking a big purse or backpack to a show isn’t always practical. That’s why this cactus-print wristlet is the perfect companion for a show as it allows you to keep all the important things strapped on. You can even have it customized with a metal guitar pick stamped with the lyric of your [friend’s] choice.
It’s always good to have a bag of supplies when you’re heading out in the woods or into a show. This 40L donut design backpack is sturdy and perfect for festivals or camping trips. If your friends love camping or spend a lot of time in the woods, the previously mentioned backpack is even better when you include this donut parachute hammock. I’m certain they will love you forever if you get the combo!
Clothing is the biggest and best thing you can gift a phan to help them stand out. Help your phriends get ready for summer tour with this Funky Bitch tank top.
After a long winter of not raging, they might also need some encouragement to get into raging shape. What better to motivate them than these awesome donut pattern yoga pants!?
This super cute pencil skirt would be perfect as office attire or a dress-up event. I love the donut trim around the bottom.
Help your friends stand out from the crowd at the next formal event with a Fishman donut pattern tie. Whether it’s a wedding, office party, or just regular work attire, they will stick out as someone with exquisite musical taste.
Keep everyone’s feet nice and comfortable with sweet socks like this pair with the Possum lyrics or this pair with the lyrics from Run Like an Antelope. Complete the combo with these sweet donut kicks.
This Phish t-shirt made me literally lol. I’m from the south and the southern spelled You Enjoy Myself lyrics of “Boy. Man. God. Shit.” nearly made me spit coffee all over my computer. I found a cute, slouchy sweatshirt with the same lyrics from YEM but transformed for the female to say “Girl. Woman. Goddess. Shit.”
How fun would it be to be underwear twinsies with your partner?! This set of donut pattern boxers and panties is a fantastic gift for a newly married couple or your Phish-loving partner. C’mon, you know you’ve thought about it 😉
Well, that’s it! I hope you’ve gotten some inspiration from this and ordered some Phish gifts for your friends and loved ones. I know I added a lot of these things to my wishlist!
