Need a gift for the Jane Austen enthusiast in your life? (Or the Darcy fanatic?)
Well, thank heaven, there’s no shortage of Jane Austen gifts. Her fan base is large and wide, and so is the vast selection of books, clothing, jewelry, gift boxes, and games that are made in her image.
You know, it’s a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen fans will swoon over anything that has her name on it (or one of her incisive quotes).
I had SO much fun making this list, and I hope you find the right gift for your beloved Janeite.

Combine your love of Jane Austen with your love of knitting, crochet, embroidery, or cooking. I’m a huge yarn crafter, so these hobby books are right up my alley. My happy place is when I’m listening to an audiobook while doing some kinda handy craft. (Not cooking, though, ha!)

Jane Austen’s Collected Works
I own all of Jane Austen’s novels, but they’re tattered paperbacks from my college days—with the exception of a charming yet battered hardcopy of Persuasion. If you really want to impress your Austen devotee, spring for one of these gorgeous box sets.
But, what if you want to get just one novel, such as Pride and Prejudice or Emma? What is the best version you can buy? You can’t go wrong with Marjolein Bastin’s Classics Series. These deluxe editions include the full text of each novel, with rich illustrations throughout. PLUS, you’ll discover detailed ephemera tucked into the pages—letters, invitations, maps, family trees, and sheet music. It’s Jane Austen on steriods (in the very best way).
