Friday Frippery! Dear Santa…

…A Last Minute Request

I’ve gone and missed the last posting date for my Christmas pressies, so I’m hoping you and Rudolph could help me by dropping off some gifts while you’re doing your rounds tomorrow night. Here’s the list…

For Lizzie Bennet…


…a set of noise cancelling headphones for when her mother’s trying to persuade her to marry the oleaginous Mr Collins.


* * * * * * * * *

For Sherlock Holmes…


… a nice vaping pipe. Three of these should solve any problem…

* * * * * * * * *

For Hercule Poirot…


…a Flick Knife Moustache Comb – useful should he ever have to defend his moustache from an evil villain.

* * * * * * * * *

For Mr Rochester…


…one or other of these self-help books should be useful, I think…

* * * * * * * * *

For Miss Marple…


…a handy tote bag, and something to help her with that difficult gift for Hercule…

* * * * * * * * *

For Bertie Wooster…


…to help deal with those occasional pesky infestations…


* * * * * * * * *

For Scrooge…


… a nice t-shirt will keep him warm and provide a handy reminder for when he hears those chains start to clank…

* * * * * * * * *

For Darcy…

Ahh, Darcy! The man who has everything! What could I give him but…


Well, why should he be denied the opportunity to admire his own magnificence?

Thanks for your help, Santa, and…

  1. These are absolutely pitch-perfect gifts, FictionFan!!! I know that each one will be much appreciated by its recipient. They’re imaginative, too, and this whole post had me laughing. Brilliant!! Merry Christmas!


  2. You made me laugh out loud, particularly at the gift for Mr. Rochester. (Always nice to see Toby Stephens.)
    I thought for sure you would present yourself to Mr. Darcy as a Christmas gift.
    Merry Christmas!


  3. Loved your gifts….especially Mr.Rochester and Mr.Darcy. If only someone would have gifted the book to Mr. Rochestor! And Darcy, what an ideal gift for a man who has it all!

    Happy New Year to you….


    • I always felt Mr Rochester would have benefited from self-help books! And Darcy should definitely get to admire his own kisscurl… 😉

      Happy New Year to you too! As we say here in Scotland, Lang May Your Lum Reek!

  4. Hahaha! The exclamation point is yellow. Haha.

    Bose is the best, so I think Lizio will really appreciate it. Absolutely NO vaping! Yucketh. I hate it and it stinks something awful, and makes lots of smoke.

    *laughing* Not a picture of Darby! Maybe he’ll disappear into his mirror.


Please leave a comment - I'd love to know who's visiting and what you think...of the post, of the book, of the blog, of life, of chocolate...
