    Hi Meredith,

    Just started my Christmas shopping but last year my daughter bought me a lovely cushion with “What Would Life be Without Mr. Darcy”. It is black and white and the words are beautfiully embroidered. Not sure which website she bought it from. I have loads and loads of books on my Christmas list and also a lovely wooden quote with the very first line of the P & P book which you can buy from the Jane Austen Gift Shop in Bath.

    p.s. Had a fantastic time in Pemberley for my 50th birthday ! X Plus one of my work colleagues bought me a lovely mug for my tea with “Mrs. Darcy” on the front of it!

    Thank you for your suggestions, I particularly like the t-shirts.


      Hi Michelle! That sounds like a lovely gift from your daughter! Jane Austen gifts are the best aren’t they? My family is tired of buying me books off my wishlist all these years so I’m charged with trying to find non-book items for them. 🙂 It has been fun for me to see all the geeky Jane Austen gifts and shirts people create!

      I was waiting to hear you were back from you trip! I’m so glad to hear you had a fantastic time! 🙂


    Thank you so much for the suggestions, Meredith! I would love to get the JA action figure. Maybe a Christmas gift to myself.

    What about a subscription to Jane Austen’s Regency World?

    Happy Monday!


    What a pity my sweetie doesn’t read this blog! He could hardly go wrong with any of these selections. Of course, I’m already pretty Austen-togged up–the Jane Austen fountain pen, the action figure of course, a “What would Jane say?” magnet, and, who could doubt, 3 T-shirts reading “Obstinate, Headstrong Girl!”


    Drooling here! 😉


    Okay, so there are no Janites on my list, except for me. So is it terrible to go through your list saying to myself “ooo I want one of those and one of those…”?? LOL I’m going to have to pace myself!!


    Great picks! I’d get them all for myself. 😉


    I hear you Stephanie L! It`s the pacing that will be the problem! I`m liking the Jane Austen Action Figure, the Jane Austen Christmas Bauble, Jane Austen postcards, Marrying Mr. Darcy (but I may find it tough to get anyone to play with me!)…see the pacing is a problem, I could go on and on…

    Thanks Meredith! I haven`t started decorating yet but I do have a great start in the shopping! Hope to start decorating next week.


      I completely understand, Carole! 🙂 The good thing is your friends and family don’t need to know anything about Pride and Prejudice and Jane Austen to play the game. 🙂 It will still be fun for them.


    Thanks, Meredith. What a lovely selection, so many great gift ideas! Trouble is I want them all.
    I shall conquer this! I SHALL! 😉


    I just added more Jane swag to my Christmas list!!


    Seriously LOVE this. Is it too obvious to just send this page to my husband? 😉 Thanks


    What cute things you’ve chosen! I especially like the mugs & ornaments. Oh, and the Marrying Mr. Darcy game is so fun! I was blessed to win it in your giveaway recently, so just wanted to thank you again for that after I got to play it. I highly recommend it, too! 🙂


      I quite agree, Amy. I think those are my favorites too! Mr. Bingley has a some super hero/video game coffee mugs…I think I need to have some nerdy, Jane Austen ones to match! 🙂


    Hi Meredith. Have you tried the Jane Austen inspired soaps yet? I STILL have my eye on them! 🙂


    I love the soaps. I just reordered more. I also have a huge scarf collection but I think I have room for one more.


      I eventually want to try all the soaps! So much fun to have them inspired by P&P characters! I think the infinity scarf is really interesting! I don’t have one like that.


    Hi Meredith!
    How much I like your wishlist post in Christmas! 🙂 It´s like unwrapping a beautiful gift. Which ones do I love more? Well… everything LOL, ok, If I have to choose they would be: the t-shirts, warm cuppas, wallet, soaps, Marrying Mr Darcy game, Jane Austen post cards (I´m very fond of stationery), the peacock tote and the scarf. Thank you for giving us things to dream about LOL.
    P.S: I have to decorate my house… maybe this weekend!


      You are so sweet, Teresa! I’m so glad you enjoy the list! I hope one of these lovely items will find its way to you soon! LOL! The postcards are on my wishlist too! I think they look lovely!


    I watched the first episode f the Lizzie Bennett diaries–it was cute!


    Love the gift ideas thank you, I have the dvds and the mug and coaster on my Christmas list! But that wallet looks lovely, I wonder if its too late to add it to my Christmas list or I could just skip the middleman and order it myself 😉


      LOL! Glad you enjoyed them, Tamara! 🙂 Maybe wait to see if they end up under your tree? And if not, treat yourself to an after Christmas/New Years gift… 😉


    This is a very late comment to this post. However, I have to tell you about the most thoughtful gift I received this Christmas. My twelve-year-old granddaughter ordered a tote bag ( I love Mr Darcy) from The Jane Austen Centre in England. How sweet is that???
