365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

7. Cool Shakespeare-Inspired Gifts

with one comment

It’s early for holiday shopping, but it never hurts to start sooner rather than later. Need to find something great to give to a Shakespeare nerd? Consider these items from my favorite website, Etsy.com:

1. This funky-pretty Steampunk necklace. At $68.00, it’s a little pricey for an informal piece of jewelry, but unique and well-crafted. Though I might be a little biased because I adore all things Steampunk….

2. For something more humorous, check out this shower curtain. Personally, I’m going to go with “not to pee”, especially if you have roommates. Common courtesy.

3. A pretty set of hair pins makes a great stocking stuffer or small gift for someone. Also great as a “just because” sort of thing!

4. Am I in love with all these journals? Why, yes, yes I am. These illustrations are amazing. Check out the rest of that shop for some other fantastic items!

5. If you want to give a gift that’s a little darker and, frankly, weirder, check out the Macbeth Witch Brew Ingredients collection! They can be bought together or separately. I imagine they would be fun to put in a kitchen, just to ick out unexpecting guests.

6. This beautiful bracelet is a sweet and romantic gift for that special lady in your life!

7. This is so adorable. Got a little one in your life? This cute bib says it all! Here’s one for a boy, too!

8. This ring features a very popular quote and would surely look elegant on anyone. There are more to choose from in the main shop!

9. Dolls are always fun. While this shop features a few Shakespearean pairs, my hands-down favorite is the King Lear and Cordelia set.

10. Finally, and my personal favorite, this necklace is lovely but just funky enough to still be fun. Perfect for the modern Shakespeare groupie!

Happy shopping, and please consider doing more shopping at Etsy.com. Everything on there is handmade and vintage. Support the artisans and their beautiful crafts!

  1. I’d found the ‘Immortal Longings’ journals while browsing this summer, and am similarly in adoration of them. So, so beautiful! (Now to go check out everything else!)
