Got Jane? Austen inspired gift giving suggestions

Only 16 more shopping days left until Christmas. Need suggestions for online shopping for your Janeite friends and family members? Not to worry, there is an abundance of Jane Austen inspired gift options on the net even if you do not have £10,000 a year or go by the moniker of Santa Darcy.

The Pemberley Shoppe has just released their beautiful selection of 2010 calendars. Among the hundreds of other gift possibilities, my personal favorite is the I Blame Jane ceramic travel mug.

The Jane Austen Centre Giftshop is the ultimate Janeite shopping destination online. It is like a virtual candy store of Jane Austen books, clothing and ephemera. Squee. Check out the All Things Darcy section.

CafePress has literally hundreds of Austen themed items from mouse pads, to T-shirts to coffee mugs listed from several vendors.

Etsy is the online hub for hand crafted items and Jane Austen is well represented with notecards, jewelry, prints, clothing, handbags and so much more.

In a hurry or clueless about which Austen inspired items to buy? Narrow down your choices with these three Austen inspired holiday shopping lists:

Oh come on!

When did Colin Firth become one of Santas Helpers? This position is held by Austen women only. Although Lady Catherine as a Mrs Claus is a bit scary (yikes).

LOL Nigel - would you feel better about Mr. Knightley being Santa's helper?

Oh, how funny and festive...What a great card cover for an avid Austen fan !

Nigel, Lady C. could only be the female version of Scrooge !

I think Sir John Middleton would make a great Father Xmas and the Bennets I think would be excellent festive season hosts. But I would love to spend Xmas with the Dashwood sisters although what to buy them as gifts might be a challenge (smiles).
