Gifts for the Gail Carriger Uber Fan (Miss Carriger Recommends)

So, here are some gifts that I, in my limited expert experience on the subject, think that a Gail Carriger fan would really enjoy. Just getting into the spirit of the season.

Gifts for the Gail Carriger Fan

Sparkly fan! ($1.50) Silk Fan with Green Sequins for Dimity from Sophronia.

Parasol Straws ($3.50).

Octopus Cookie Cutter ($5).

Octopus necklace ($7) for any member of the OBO who doesn’t want to get a tattoo.

Fans of the Soulless manga series might like this adorable business card case featuring a parasol ($7).

Octopus Bottle Stopper ($12) for those who prefer wine over tea.

1800s Balloon Art Airship Stainless Steel ID or Cigarettes Case ($14). This is the airship design that the Flywaymen air dinghies are based off of in the Finishing School series.

Or if you’re buying for a big OBO Madame Lefoux fan, the same company makes versions of this case with octopus on the cover.

Lace overlay parasol (not good for rain) $16, come in range of colors.

Wonderful Ocean Octopus Nightlight ($18) that I might have to buy for my office. So cuts! Perhaps Rue had one of these while a child.

Mademoiselle Geraldine’s preferred Tea Cozy ($11). Let the tiny cakes fly!

Silver Octopus Tentacle Ear Cuff Wrap Earring

Tentacles Wall Decal Sticker ($30).

Lucky Ladybug Shaped Teapot ($18). For Primrose to serve tea aboard the Spotted Custard.

My favorite tea, Twinings 1706 Strong ($12).

{Gail’s monthly read along for December is Newt’s Emerald by Garth Nix, skinflint alternative is Ridiculous by D.L. Carter.}
