Depending on what your algorithm looks like, when you opened TikTok over the last couple of weeks, chances are high that you saw a slew of videos of people flocking to T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, tearing through the aisles, and searching the blanket section — all for one coveted find: the Gilmore Girls throw blanket. 

The plush white blanket is covered in symbols of the early 2000s series, from a Luke’s Diner coffee cup to Chinese takeout containers to the iconic Stars Hollow gazebo. A cozy blanket themed around a classic comfort show? It just makes sense. Some lucky shoppers got their hands on the blanket, and they were thrilled. “It’s $16.99 and it’s perfect,” reads one TikTok comment. 

“Yay!!! I freaked out when I found it,” says another. 

But not everyone was so lucky! In fact, most videos I saw were of people documenting their search through one or several stores, coming up empty-handed. 

For any Gilmore Girls fans desperate for a themed throw, though, all hope is not lost. Because they seem to be sold out at most Marshalls and T.J. Maxx locations, people have taken to other sources to find similar products, with some recommending this super-soft-looking Stars Hollow blanket from Hallmark, and many touting this version from Amazon

The good news? The Amazon blanket is still available to order for $29.99, and people seem to love it. 

“Enjoy it! It’s so snuggly soft❤️,” one TikTok commenter says. 

“I just got the same one and I loveee it,” says another. 

The reviews on Amazon are glowing, too, with 17,000 ratings and a 4.8-star average. “Nice quality, perfect size, and all the right graphics for my friend who loves the Gilmore Girls show!” reads one review. Others note that the blanket is lightweight and some say it’s a little smaller than they anticipated (it’s 46 by 60 inches), which is worth noting if you’re looking for an oversized throw. 

I personally love the light blue color — and the thought of curling up with this blanket while the opening credits roll and “Where You Lead” starts to play.
