Well, actually, that’s a little bold. I can’t speak for all of you–and even I wouldn’t necessarily want everything on this list! But I can tell you that, as a group, MMD readers like good books and strong coffee, gorgeous necklaces and scarves, Downton Abbey and Jane Austen.
If you need a gift idea for a fellow MMD reader, want to pass this along to your significant other, or finally let your family members know what’s on your list, well, this is a good place to start.
Gorgeous, versatile, and responsibly sourced: Inca steps necklace from Noonday Collection, in coral or teal, $72.
Works like a bag; looks like a card catalog. Kate Spade “required reading” shopper. Was $228, on sale for $136.
Meet your muse: Jane Austen action figure, $13.
Extra-large tote bag from Lucy Jane Totes, $68. Use it to schlep your baby gear, your pool toys, or your library books.
A gift-y book with mass appeal, like Art that Changed the World, Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book, Princesses Behaving Badly, or The Most of Nora Ephron.
Fanfiction stinks, but this Austen-inspired memoir sings. The chapter on Mansfield Park is my favorite. A Jane Austen Education: How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship, and the Things That Really Matter, William Deresiewicz.
Everyday indulgence: Jo Malone orange blossom scented candle, $65. If that price makes you woozy, try Pacifica’s mexican scented cocoa, Trapp’s black pepper, or even Mrs. Meyers Clean Day’s Iowa pine candles.
Beautiful stationery, notepads, or journals, like these from Rifle Paper Co, are always welcome. ($12.95 for 3)
Beautiful scarf with a beautiful story: the Helen scarf from fashionABLE, $28.
A 5-year journal, like this Jane Austen-themed one, or this one from The Happiness Project, $14. I snagged this one in the sale room at Anthro last week for my husband to slip into my stocking. (You’re welcome, babe.)
Credit to a service like Stitch Fix will keep on giving after the holidays are over.
On my personal wish list: a gift certificate for a massage (or three).
