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
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.
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.
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!
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).
