    I just read all of these posts and love them! Some great stocking stuffer ideas and I love the Christmas scenes in English literature too. Thank you for spreading the holiday spirit 🙂

    That Christmas scene in Persuasion is one of my favorites, Anne. Austen gets every detail just right, from the scatter-clatter of the children to detached observance.

    To add to the ideas for unusual gifts for kids – toolboxes with a few basic tools (hammer, screwdriver, etc) of good quality and you can add to the kit for each holiday/birthday – by the time they are adults they will have a fully stocked toolbox to take with them. Not just for boys – girls appreciate toolkits too especially smaller ones they can stash in a dorm room for emergencies.

    Also hiking/camping gear – start with a quality sleeping bag and head light and then expand (hiking boots, lanterns, backpack, etc) to get them ready for their own adventures.

    I’d love to hear any recommendations for holiday-ish books that aren’t cheesy romance novels. I love the Christmas scenes post, but I want more!!
