Upside-Down Shopping

The Netflix horror drama “Stranger Things” and its massive following helped make the 1980s cool again — the fourth season even made Kate Bush’s song “Running Up That Hill” a bigger hit in 2022 than it was when released in 1985. But not every gift you can buy for a fan of the show will make them feel like a Gen Xer; some are just cool reminders of a scary and occasionally heartwarming show that you can play with, wear, or just show off. What gifts are missing from our list? Tell us in the comments.
