The Best Gilmore Girls Quotes (& Gifts for Stars Hollow Fans)

When our team decided to launch a collection of Gilmore Girls flower-pressed bookmarks, we started rewatching the series known for small town charm, ultra-fast talking, and the wittiest mother-daughter duo. But the more we watched, we started noticing so many nuggets of life lessons and snappy quotes - we had to share them in a blog! 

From quotes about love and life to coffee and snow, we compiled 40+ quotes from this incredible show. And if you're a Gilmore Girls lover or looking for a gift for one, take a peek at our handmade bookmarks inspired by the series. Each bookmark is handmade, crafted with real flowers, and made with a love for Stars Hollow, #TeamJess, and all things GG.
