Mysterious holiday gifts

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

Calendars has several mystery-themed calendars, including
Sherlock Holmes
Law & Order SVU
Edward Gorey

Stocking stuffers:

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.


  1. The coffee mug with the brass knuckles looks pretty fun! Thanks for the list.

    1. It was a fun list to create, LJ. There are many things on that list that I wouldn't mind receiving myself.

  2. Crime scene scarfs. When I wear mine it always catches attention.

    1. Thanks, Peg. I came across that during my original search, then couldn't find it again.
