From the swoon-worthy hate-to-love romance of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet to the oblivious matchmaking hijinks of Miss Emma Woodhouse, it’s not really a surprise that Jane Austen remains an influence and inspiration for modern readers, writers, and game creators.
If you find yourself shopping for a fan, have no fear! Today, I’m sharing some amazing Jane Austen inspired products that any Janite would love to receive!
1. Lizzie Bennet Enamel Pin from Joy Addict
This bonnet-wearing heroine will be instantly recognizable to avid fans of the ’95 miniseries starring Jennifer Ehle. Our only complaint is that they haven’t made a Colin Firth companion in honor of Mr. Darcy.
2. Unsociable and Taciturn T-Shirt from Dashie Shop
Speaking of Mr. Darcy… if you’ve got a socially awkward buddy who can relate to Fitzwilliam‘s terrible party manners (spoiler alert, it’s me), this t-shirt might be a winner.
3. Obstinate Headstrong Girl T-Shirt from GladlyGoods
If you’re not really sold on giving your friend an ‘unsociable’ gift, maybe this Pride and Prejudice quote is a better fit. Female fierceness was what Jane Austen was all about, after all!
4. Marrying Mr. Darcy Card Game from Game Salute
In my experience, games are the gift that keep on giving. Especially if it’s one you’d like to play, too! Prettily designed and utterly perfect for fans of Pride and Prejudice, it’s all good until someone steals your man. And if Mr. Darcy isn’t your cup of tea, there’s an Emma extension pack!
5. Pride & Prejudice Artwork from Medusa
This lovely print is all drama and decadence, the perfect addition to a fandom gallery wall, creative corner, or propped up proudly (badum-ching) on the bookshelf. And, yes, you can get it on a t-shirt if you’d rather wear it proudly.
6. Pride & Prejudice Quote Pins from The Silver Spider
As a pin collector, I know quality and quantity are equally valued. This set of black and silver pins feature some less obvious P&P quotes that any avid Janite would be thrilled to add to their growing stash.
7. Jane Austen Novel from BiblioArts by Emma
Okay, there’s been a lot of love for Pride & Prejudice in this post, but there are plenty of other Jane Austen titles to pick from! This is the perfect gift for the fan who’s read them all.
8. A Truth Universally Acknowledged Tote from BumbleBess
When it comes to famous first lines, nothing can beat the opener from Pride & Prejudice. I can’t guarantee this book tote will help you find your very own Mr. Bingley, but you’re sure to catch the eye of any fellow Janites in the room.
9. Jane Austen Playing Cards from Prospero Arts
Decked out with classic artwork, these playing cards can be a little distracting if you want to read all the quotes. I personally enjoy playing a hand or two of Rummy, but if you’d like to be historically accurate, it’s got to be Whist.
10. Jane Austen Postage Stamp T-Shirt from PemberTea
We love her heroines, we can quote the lines out of her novels from memory, we admire Jane Austen for her tenacity, wit, and endless creativity. Why not show the lady behind the page a little love, too?
