Our hearts will go on for Leonardo DiCaprio.

I don’t care how old you were when the movie first came out, if you were alive during the theater release of Titanic, you have a 99.9999% chance of being a Leonardo DiCaprio STAN. Maybe it’s a closeted superfandom, something you shield from your friends, family, and co-workers. Maybe it’s a latent pining after Leo that you haven’t even THOUGHT to conjure since his debilitating portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator (also, his tobacco teeth in Django Unchained ALDFGK;LDF YICK). Whatever its manifestation, your love for Leo is there. Given all that, it’s high time you dust off those Lip Smackers-laden Tiger Beat magazines because the reunion of DiCaprio with his William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet director Baz Luhrmann for the film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby has us all FEELINGSY about Leo’s heartthrob heyday. To help ourselves through it (and maybe you too), we’ve rounded up all the best Leonardo DiCaprio Stan Swag the Internet has to offer.
Starting left to right, we have the Leonardo DiCaprio devotional candle. Sure, it’s a little (OK, a LOT) sacrilegious, but how else were we supposed to get the point across that your flame for Leo is still burning?? Use it to light the way to your homemade shrine in the dead of night after you’ve just had a terrible nightmare about Billy Zane and Kate Winslet plotting to keep Leo off that floating door. BTW, said nightmare takes place while you’re snoozing on this Leo throw pillow. A more mobile (*ba dum TSH*) Stan Swag option is this watercolor-splotched iPhone case emblazoned with Leo’s young mug (like, The Basketball Diaries young, NOT Growing Pains young *pauses to remember Luke Brower*). Also, you can have LAYERS of DiCaprio fan references by toting your phone inside this Gastby book clutch.
Ice, no matter its shape, probably reminds you of the Titanic anyway, so why not just kill two birds with one iceberg and this Titanic-themed ice tray. Perfect for DiCaprio movie marathons with your fellow Leo Stans. Don’t have the luxury of an entire crew that shares your love? Would you rather keep your undying devotion under wraps? Try this discrete Leo necklace on for size. Technically, it’s for the Leo zodiac sign, but no one has to know that. On the flip side, if you prefer to wear your heart on your sleeve (literally), allow us to introduce you to our pièce de résistance: this Team DiCaprio sweatshirt. Sure, it’s getting warmer, but it’s the perfect layer for all those repeat trips you’ll be making to your local theater to see Leo in all his Gatsby glory. Wear it with pride, friends.
