Wedding season begins soon. And what does that mean? Eternal love? Beautiful memories? A happy couple?
It means it is bridal shower time...and THAT, my friends, means GIFTS! The more thoughtful, the better.
And if your friend just so happens to be an ardent admirer of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, then perhaps we shall come up with something quite agreeable.
Whether the bride-to-be fancies herself the beautiful and demure Jane, or playful Lizzie, with her sharp tongue and fine eyes, you can easily put together a gift that will quite suit her fancy! (If she thinks she is one of the other sisters...hmm. Then skip this and get her a make over.)
A trademark of Jane and Lizzie's relationship are their letters. What P & P devotee wouldn't love some lovely stationery?
|Chamomile, to calm the nerves....lavender is always good too.|
|Perhaps a few biscuits with her tea, if she is famished.|
|Doesn't that look soooo comfy?|
|Take care of that gorgeous face!|
Now, the honeymoon will be over soon enough. And what will fill her days (after work, cleaning the house, and paying bills)? Your dearest friend will need a book, of course! Because after all, there is no enjoyment like reading!
And not just any book! Only the complete works of Jane Austen will do!
|The fairer sex may need help holding this book!|
Jane and Lizzie carried their dried flowers in baskets. But what a lovely way to present your gift, don't you think?
|A lovely gift in itself.|
Upon my word, I do think these ideas must be acceptable to you, especially when tempered with a thorough reading of Pride and Prejudice, which these suggestions will inevitably interest.
With that I leave you, dear ones. Please enjoy the gift-giving and those warm summer weddings. And don't forget your gloves!
