Tis the season to shop and give and keep! Here is my annual Jane Austen wish list for Janeites. Enjoy!
I cannot think of a better way to start your day than with your very own Pemberley mug, can you?
A “nice” alternative to permanent ink.
Love it! The perfect sofa, chair or bed ornament.
The perfect book shelf figure to broadcast to friends and family which super hero rules your humble abode. Thankfully they do not make a Mr. Collins version.

You are not a Janeite until you own a copy of this fabulous 5 hour miniseries starring Colin Firth as the pond plunging Mr. Darcy. Read our review.
This new 2 part movie adaptation of mystery writer P. D. James’ bestselling novel of the same name aired in the UK in 2013 and in the US in 2014. It was much better than the book.
Are you ready to go on a Jane Austen fantasy holiday at a Regency era grand manor house in England to find your Mr. Darcy? If so, be prepared for some off color humor and stinging jabs at Jane Austen fandom. British actor J.J. Feild as Mr. Nobly saved this film for me.
A fabulous selection of classic piano music from Jane Austen’s own collection, preformed on period instruments.
A collection of Jane Austen quotes beautifully packaged.
Quite possibly the most visually stunning and well-written coffee table book on Jane Austen, her family, and her times ever published. I highly recommend it.
