2022 marks the 50th anniversary of arguably one of the greatest mafia movies of all time. The Godfather is easily a film that makes many people’s favorite movies of all time lists, and it’s no secret as to why. The star-studded cast featuring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Marlon Brando (to name just a few), have some of the greatest acting performances of all time. And for me, growing up Italian, this movie was like a rite of passage. So, to celebrate its 50th anniversary, we’ve put together a list of Must Haves items inspired by The Godfather that you’re just gonna want to own immediately.

  • The Godfather T-shirt

    I figured I would start with something simple. Personally, I love a good graphic tee. And for something like The Godfather, where I’m very invested in the film, I definitely think the mark of a true fan lies in owning something inspired by the film. What better way to do that than with a shirt featuring “The Godfather” himself, Marlon Brando as Don Vito Corleone. This tee comes in sizes Small through XXX-Large.

  • The Godfather Whiskey Glass

    And like any good mob boss, you should own your own whiskey glass. If you’re the head of the family, or hey maybe you’re about to be a godfather to someone, you can get this glass personalized with the name of your choosing.

  • Leave The Gun Take The Cannoli Tee

    There are probably ten quotes from this movie my father or someone else in my family quotes on a regular basis. This one is definitely on the list. So I had to make sure it was represented accurately. This tee is just one of two with this now-famous line. This maroon tee can be bought in sizes Small through XXX-Large.

  • The Godfather Retro Movie Poster

    The minute I saw this item I knew it had to be on this list. I love the art style, for one. But for two, I love the shadow along the back of our friend here. This poster comes in a wide range of sizes so you can choose whatever will fit your room’s aesthetic best.

  • The Godfather’s Study Scented Candle

    I’m a sucker for a good candle, especially one that is inspired by a favorite film and smells good. This Godfather candle is said to be inspired by the smell of Don Corleone’s study. The notes include leather, pipe smoke, French vanilla, and oak. Honestly, it sounds heavenly. The best part is that you don’t have to buy this in candle form. If you have a wax Melter, this item is also available in wax melts!

  • Genco Pure Olive Oil Tee

    Ah yes, our favorite olive oil company. I’m sure you remember this company well, as it was the front for the whole Corleone operation. This is another one of my favorite things when it comes to graphic tees. Shirts that have subtle nods to the movie that’s anywhere will know the minute they see it. You can grab this in sizes Small through XXX-Large as well.

  • Fredo’s Boat Rentals Tee

    Here’s another example of a subtle nod to the film franchise. My favorite thing about this, while the situation is definitely morbid, the shirt is somewhat humorous in its own way. This shirt is available in many sizes and color choices!

  • Take The Cannoli Navy Tee

    As promised, here is the second “leave the gun, take the cannoli,” t-shirt. I love this one just as much as the other. My favorite part of this one, however, is the lettering for cannoli. It has more of a restaurant sign font that I feel fits very well with this quote.  

  • Take The Cannoli Mug

    And speaking of this quote, why not throw in a fun mug as well. Pair your coffee with your cannoli and you’re sure to have a great morning.

  • Apollonia Vitelli Classic Cars Tee

    Ooooh, this one might hurt a bit. The quote on the tee that says “our automobiles are a blast to drive,” is really what made me add this here. Again, it’s such a subtle nod to something very morbid, but fans alike will know this instantly.
