I've been noticing these 'gift guides' popping up everywhere, and since I don't like recommending books to get people I don't know (it's hard enough figuring out books to get people I do know), I thought I would instead share with you these delightful Janeite items you can buy on Etsy.
Jane Austen bookmarks by CastleontheHill--$9.50 for 6
Aren't these adorable? The seller also has art prints with these original drawings of Jane Austen characters. I think this would be cute gift for a pre-teen just starting to read classics.
Jane Austen inspired corner bookmarks by FairestLJ--$10 for 2
These corner bookmarks are much fancier (and more expensive) than the previous bookmarks. Not sure how practical they are, either, but they certainly look good.
My Other Ride is a Barouche decal sticker by eaton--$3 for 1
Cars and Regency-era romance so rarely go together, but they can now with this perfect accessory for every driving Janeite!
Mr. Darcy Note Cards by ecdesign--$14 for 10
Probably not the best card to use for an apology, but they would be awesome to send in lieu of a break-up text.
Mr. Darcy Holiday Card by bbInvitations--$5 for 1
Haha. Kidding! But kinda not.
Mr. Darcy Proposal Scarf by Brookish--$24 for 1
You'll not only think but feel like Mr. Darcy in this snowy white women's cravat, which repeats the classic words of his proposal, right before he put his foot in his mouth.
Mr. Darcy ring by CandleBrightCreation--$16 for 1
Mr. Darcy is literally wrapped around your finger.
Pride & Prejudice locations typography t-shirt by Brookish--$22 for 1
Okay, this I really do need. Listing all the locations mentioned in P&P, this shirt is a subtle and clever way of identifying other Janeites, and may also double as a map in case you get lost. In Regency England.
Do you have any great gift ideas for lovers of Jane Austen novels?
