Have Yourself A Very Downton Christmas

This year, as every year, Christmas gift catalogues are already arriving at my house. Not surprising. What is surprising are the number of Downton Abbey themed gifts on offer. I couldn't resist rounding them up and posting about them in case there are any DA fanatics on your gift list.

The Downton Abbey 2013 wall calendar is available from Daedalus Books at $5.98

Meanwhile, the Signals catalog has a wealth of DA memorabilia, including the "sister shirts"

Which sister are you? Not they sisterly type? Don't fret - many of the other DA characters have their own t-shirts, as well.










Or maybe you're just not the t-shirt sort. The following gifts are available from Past Times.





 
 
Or you can always give the Downton Abbey cross-stitch kit, available on Etsy.

Finally, if you really want to splash out, or if someone has been very, very good, you might treat them to a one night luxury break and visit to Highclere Castle. Accommodation provided by nearby Esseborne Manor.
