Photos from

September is a special month for BTS fans all over the world because two of the group’s members are celebrating their birthdays. The “Golden Maknae” Jeon Jung-kook (JK) is turning 24 on September 1, while BTS leader Kim Nam-joon (RM) is turning 27 on September 12.

In a letter to fans, JK once said, “Rather than sending us gifts, how about sending one to yourself? Have you ever given yourself a gift? We’re already so happy with just having ARMY.”

You heard it straight from the birthday boy—instead of buying gifts for them, they’d much rather see you buy a gift for yourself. BTS never fails to say how thankful they are for ARMY’s love and support. And as the title of their album series says, you need to “Love Yourself” as well.

Here’s a handy list of gift ideas curated for BTS fans. Whether you get just one item for yourself or buy them all to share with family and friends, we’re sure JK and RM will approve!
