Jewelry is a clear choice, she’s a big fan of jewelry. But not something gimmicky like little Yorick skull earrings or something. Shakespeare’s Den
has an interesting selection – I like the Moebius Strip bracelet, though I wish it was a better sonnet :). And the Romeo and Juliet pendant was nice. I just thought of something – she does wear a charm bracelet, it would be nice to put a little Shakespeare something on that. But alas it’s a gold bracelet and it seems like all of Shakespeare’s Den stuff is silver.
A nice piece of clothing would also be an option, but harder to come by without being gimmicky and having Shakespeare on it just for the sake of branding (like the ubiquitous tote bags, etc…) The sonnet scarf is a neat idea, but I’m not sure I love the design.
What else? Somewhere I can’t remember I saw an engraved R&J photo album which was nice (the wife’s big into memories and photo albums) but it was like $150, which struck me as a bit crazy for a photo album.
So, what else is out there? How do you put a little Shakespeare into somebody’s life?
