Yesterday I wrote about my college boyfriend (who bought me the complete works of Jane Austen for Valentine’s Day) and my current beau, The Wedding Date (who bought me a Jane Austen necklace for Christmas instead).
As noted, the complete works don’t make for a very good gift if your significant other already has the complete works (unless it’s some sort of special collector’s edition, which is a totally different story, but frankly I’d still prefer jewelry).
I never realized just how much Jane Austen merchandise exists nowadays, but there’s tons of it, so I’ve compiled a list of the highlights (including Darcy pajamas… for men!) in order to help you find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for the Janeite in your life.
