Jane Austen Gift Guide: Christmas 2018. Eleven+ things you need!

This Jane Austen Gift Guide covers all your bases for handmade or unique gifts for the Jane Austen lover. Enjoy shopping this year and we hope this guide helps!

You need the perfect Christmas gift for the Jane Austen lover in your life, but where to start? One of the privileges of being a Jane Austen soapmaker is meeting other Jane Austen makers who have an array of lovely and unique products. I’ve compiled a curated list of unique items that I’ve found and delighted in. If what I’ve linked to is sold out, most of these shops have an abundance of other Jane Austen and literary inspired items sure to soothe the soul.

The list totals eleven items (and a couple extras I snuck in), but I could have gone on with more! I hope you enjoy perusing them! All are unique and most handmade.

  1. Lively Lines Poster. A delightful poster full of words from Jane Austen’s novels and letters. Available from Uncommon Goods.

This gift guide isn’t book focused but I had to mention two new books that have come out this fall that I look forward to reading. The first is Rational Creatures, a new anthology with sixteen stories of Austen’s heroines. The second is Praying with Jane: 31 days through the prayers of Jane Austen. I’m so excited for them both!

Happy shopping to you all! I hope this guide has been helpful to those looking for just the right gift. If you are looking for more ideas, check out my Jane Austen gifts Pinterest board!

Yours ever,

  1. I love this list! The ornaments are simply amazing, I love the cottage watercolor and the P&P map is genius! Looking forward to receiving my order of your delightful soaps!!!

  2. What a charming list! Thanks for compiling. Here’s something new to add: Have you heard of a new book called The Jane Austen Diet?? Vogue magazine just did a fun article about it. It looks super fun!
