Need gifts for that Outlander lover in your life? Or just need to treat yourself to something fun? Here are some fan-made and licensed items that you should consider! Click the company name to go directly to that shop.
Karen Boilard has just opened an Etsy store for her hand-knit items, and they’re gorgeous! Check out the handwarmers – the patterns are really cute. Karen also does some adorable greeting cards! Handwarmers run $20; headband, cowl and handwarmer sets are $50.
Nina is one of my perpetual favorites for Outlander gift guides. I own several pieces of Nina’s work. She’s expanded into some new lines – her adorable Scottish Tartan Gnome Ornaments are terrific, and her handbags are all one of a kind designs – check out her Etsy site to see what’s currently available. There’s so much more to see in her shop! And exclusive to this gift guide – use the coupon code TIBS20 at checkout, and get a special 20% discount (good until Dec. 15)!
The official store has some new and really cute items – not a lot of imagination, but they’ve gone past the “Jamie Face” shirts. Tees, hoodies, journals, even an expanded selection of phone cases are available. Subscribe to their newsletter – they have a sale on something almost every week.
This new Season 3 & 4 companion (came out in October) will give you all the backstage stories, interviews and photos your Outlander-loving heart could ever wish for. Of course, if you haven’t seen the earlier book, The Making of Outlander Seasons 1 & 2, get that as well! Author Tara Bennett was our guest on The Gab, our internet radio show, on release day – you can listen to that broadcast here.
The Portland-based fan group has a secret weapon in their charity fundraising – Colleen Madden (girlfrog, @thenewredplaid on Twitter) has done the cutest artwork for the group! Shirts, cards, and more are all available on Redbubble. Outlandia PDX donates the funds raised to Clay Street Table, which feeds the hungry and homeless in Portland.
The Southern Sassenachs are another fan group raising lots of money for charity through fabulous fan art! Laura Ewing Ferrer has created great artwork (I have several of the t-shirts, and get the most comments when I wear them). Charities the Southern Sassenachs support include the CERN Foundation, World Child Cancer USA, and Cahonas Scotland. They have two new designs this year – Roger & Bree, and Lord John!
Here are some of the most yummy looking soaps I’ve seen! Soaps include Claire’s Herb Garden – infused oils, bee pollen and honey; Highland Warrior – .the mingled scents of pine, musk, woodsmoke and leather, made with oatmeal and whisky; and Black Jack Lavender – solid black soap is scented with lavender. Bars are $5.50.
I’m tooting my own tiny horn here. My wonderful friend (and fellow TIBS writer) Alyson Bailey and I create fused glass, and we’ve each done some Outlander-related items – ornaments, jewelry, trinket dishes, and maybe more. Check us out on Facebook. Exclusive discount – mention that you saw us in this gift guide and get free shipping (to US addresses; ask us for international shipping rates)!
Want a Scottish black-nosed sheep of your very own? The real thing might be more work than you want, especially in that city apartment, but Nancy’s hand-made 100% wool felted creations will keep your heart warm, at least. She also has bunnies, bees, Westies, and more on her site, and I’m encouraging her to make a Highland coo. 🙂
Susan Cortesi has long been involved in costume making. When she attended Wizard World in Chicago in 2018, she was asked to make some Outlander-related items, and then got a little further into this with a terrific, successful booth at Thru the Stones. She now makes purses, bears, shawls, Christmas ornaments, scarves, and her new addition, tweed Adsos. Where possible, she uses upcycled materials.
