The True Crime craze has been going strong for many years now. According to, “Half of Americans say they enjoy the genre of True Crime, including 13% who say it’s their favorite genre.” For some of us, that love of the genre started back during the days of Unsolved Mysteries and Dateline. For others, the world of podcasting as kicked this love into high gear.

Regardless of how or when we all know sometimes it gets morbid and macabre. But as all True Crime fans know, it’s all about being aware of your surrounding. Don’t worry folks, you are in a safe space here to show your love!

So whether you’re new to True Crime or an OG Dateline watcher every item on this list is a Must Have for you or the perfect gift for the true crime lover in your life.
