9 Perfect Gifts for Austen Fans



Great gifts for fans of Jane Austen's writing


For those of you who can't have enough of Pride and Prejudice and any other novels written by Jane Austen, we have compiled a short list of several gifts you'd like to receive. Wink Wink - maybe suggest them to your friends and family so they know what they can get for you when your birthday or Christmas comes around?

If that's what you are doing, which is to say that you're on the hunt of the perfect gift for an Austen fan, perhaps you should consider having a look at the next items. I know I have enjoyed them and would love to get my hands on them! There's a bit of Elizabeth and a bit of Darcy in all of us, after all.

Marrying Mr. Darcy Board Game

If you really love Pride and Prejudice, you're going to love this game! Players have to go through two stages to finish the game. The first, as you might have guessed, is the courship stage, and the second is the proposal stage. In short, it's a simple card game that won't raise any difficulties to anyone, nor will it bore the life out of those who dislike playing board games, in general.


The Complete Novels of Jane Austen

There are two ways of going about if you want to give a nice present to someone who loves Austen's writing. In many cases, even hardcore Austen fans haven't had the opportunity to read absolutely all of her novels. So giving them a collection such as this one is a good idea. Plus, if the person you intend to surprise owns an e-book reader, you might want to know that the collection is available for free in the Kindle Store. Most Austen's novels aren't protected by any copyright anymore, having been published so long ago.


Socksmith Women's Jane Austen Socks

I think I've mentioned another pair of literary socks in one of my older posts, from last year or so. The design of those made me burst out laughing as they actually featured about a dozen miniature Edgar Allan Poe head figures. These socks are a bit more classic, as is pretty much anything related to Austen, right? They're made from cotton, nylon, and spandex, which means that they're going to last for a decent amount of time. Besides, they're available in two colors -- steel blue and lavender -- so you can choose the one you like most. The best thing about socks is that you can get enough of them!


The Unemployed Philosophers Guild Austen Coffee Mug

This microwave and dishwasher-safe mug is, without a doubt, a great gift to give to someone who likes Austen quotes and wants to have them close all of the time. The 14 oz capacity is great for someone who drinks tea or coffee. We suggest offering this type of present to a person who spends a lot of time in front of the computer or at the office. Perhaps these Austen quotes might be able to improve their mood once in a while.


Out of Print Pride and Prejudice Pouch

The coolest thing about this pouch is that it actually looks like a small handbag. It's sizeable enough to be used for storing and carrying various essentials such as a smartphone, a lipstick, house and car keys, and anything else that one might need when one's out and about. It features a typical zipper enclosure, so there's no point wasting time trying to open and close it up. Besides, it is made in the United States.

Pride and Prejudice Book Scarf

There's really not that much to say about this product, and that's because it's a scarf on which some of the most memorable Austen quotes from her best-known novel have been printed. Thanks to its color and design, it goes well with any attire. Every scarf is gift wrapped and comes in a zipper pouch that can be reused. Most of those who have purchased it seem to be pleased with its quality and the fact that it's made from a soft jersey fabric. By the way, this one's crafted in the U.S., too, in Los Angeles, to be more specific.


Classic Coloring Jane Austen

It's no wonder coloring books have become so popular in recent years. After all, the activity has a beneficial effect on anyone's stress levels. Through the pages of this book, you'll get to experience a bit of the age that Austen used to live in. There are fifty-five removable coloring plates within the covers of the book, and they can be used with watercolors, markers, as well as colored pencils. They'll hold quite well, based on what some of those who have bought this item have to say about it.

Tea with Jane Austen: Recipes inspired by her novels and letters

You know how the British love their tea? Well, back in Austen's day, they used to love it even more. While these days it actually means dipping a teabag into hot water, they used to make a grand ceremony out of it every day at about 5 in the afternoon. Aside from the actual tea, they got to enjoy cakes and pastries, so it was more of a #drunch. And then they ate their dinner, too. Amazing. Well, if you've ever wanted to make any of the tea recipes showcased in Austen's novel, here's your chance. With this book, you can. It comes with a good deal of original recipes ranging from plum cake to good old gingerbread.

Jane Austen Books Coaster Set

I've decided to end this selection with a coaster set because these designs are those of Austen's most famous book covers. Besides, these coasters have a permanent matte finish, so they will withstand the test of time even if you clean them by hand and using a mild detergent. You do have to be a bit careful if you want to extend their life, though. Some of the customers describe them as soft and earthy while others say that they were bothered by the strong rubber smell when they took them out of the box for the first time. Fortunately, the scent disappears over time.
