I don't usually publish a gift suggestions list, but I've had a few requests for it this year.
I'm going to assume that CFC readers already know what books are out there, so this post will focus on other mystery-related gifts.
DIY library kit, which includes " 20 self-adhesive pockets, 20 checkout cards, date stamp, inkpad, and pencil" (books not included).
Mugs - with a handle shaped like a gun, or brass knuckles.
Death on the Nile jigsaw puzzle - 1000 piece puzzle includes a short story to read before you attempt the puzzle. Does NOT include a picture of the finished puzzle.
Various interactive games for DVDs, PC, or Nintendo Wii.
Subscriptions to The Sleuth magazine
Handbags & accessories
Many, many, many collectibles
Amazon.com has several mystery-themed calendars, including
Law & Order SVU
Dead Fred pen holder
Splat Stan coaster
Crime Scene sandwich bags, bandages, "scotch" tape
GingerDead Man cookie cutter
Pistol-shaped iPhone stand
Of course this is just a sampling of the plethora of stuff out there. If you know of something so wonderful it should have been included, please let me know in the comments.
