For the Kindred Spirit: Gift Ideas for the Anne of Green Gables Fan

This blog post is very heavy on the affiliate links. This means that I’ll earn a small commission from sales and that ABSOLUTELY NOTHING changes in terms of what you pay. For the full legal disclaimer, click here.
  1. Book sets – I’m very partial to my paperback set that contains all eight Green Gables stories. While I can’t find my set, this one is very similar. All of the books have held up despite 15 years of readthroughs and abuse. Still, I wouldn’t mind having this hardcover set of the first 3 books.
  2. Megan Follows Movie Series – For many, Megan Follows and Jonathan Crombie define Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe. There’s no reason that should change for the future generations, either! The final movie doesn’t follow the books, but the first two in this set complement the books perfectly.
  3. The Emily Starr Series – I’ve wanted to read this series, featuring another of author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s beloved orphans, for years. I’m sure I’m not alone, either. Unfortunately, it’s hard to find all three books in one matching set. You can find the first one here, the second book here, and the final book in the trilogy here.
  4. Chronicles of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomery – One of the most annoying parts of Anne of Avonlea are the footnotes referring to this book. Do your Green Gables fan a favor and let them read the referenced stories for him or herself! There’s also Further Chronicles of Avonlea that you can find here.
  5. The Alpine Path: The Story of My Career by Lucy Maud Montgomery – Fans love behind-the-scenes looks, which is why this autobiography will be (or at least would be if they knew about it) on the want list of any Green Gables fan!
  6. Anne of Green Gables Cookbook – Okay, so maybe not every fan will want this. But if know a Green Gables fan who also enjoys the kitchen, this will be a fun gift for them!
  7. ‘Fashionable Clothes’ Coffee Mug – It’s my own private running joke, but I have to make sure to include at least one coffee mug in every roundup that I put together. This classic Anne Shirley quote is my pick. While you’re at it, why not add some collectable Anne of Green Gables blueberry tea to go with it?
  8. The Story Girl by L. M. Montgomery – This is another classic from L. M. Montgomery. ‘The Story Girl’ is sure to be a pleasant read. Warning: you’ll come away wishing you had Sara Stanley’s gift of gab as well!
  9. ‘Tomorrow is a New Day’ Tote Bag – This other classic Anne Shirley quote is beautifully placed in a floral wreath.
  10. Lily of the Valley Bracelet – (*spoiler*) In the books, the end of Anne’s courtship with her ideal Roy Gardner begins when she chooses to carry Gilbert’s lilies-of-the-valley over Roy’s violets on graduation day. She, of course, was blissfully unaware of her choice. Just remember to partner it with a cheesy line like “May you always choose me over the Roy Gardners of the world” or “Don’t settle for Roy when you’re Gilbert Blythe is out there”. 😉
  11. ‘Life is Worth Living’ Art Quote – This print, quoted straight from the book, would make for a great addition to bedroom or entry way. After all, what’s the point of life if you can’t laugh?
  12. A Tangled Web by L. M. Montgomery – I know better than anybody that you shouldn’t base a book on a cover and a publisher’s choice reviews, but how could you go wrong with another relatively unknown L. M. Montgomery gem?
  13. Anne of Green Gables Candle – Would you like some raspberry cordial? How about just as a candle scent?
  14. Raspberry Cordial Syrup – We all know that raspberry cordial played an important role in the life of young Anne Shirley, but most of us don’t even know what it is. While I can’t promise you this is like Marilla’s Cuthbert’s, it’s at least a step in the right direction.
  15. ‘Tomorrow is a New Day’ Necklace – This personally isn’t my style, but you can see in the reviews that other Green Gables fans really love it. If you think it might fit your Green Gables fan’s sense of style, then go for it!
  16. A Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery – This is the last non-Anne related book that I’ll give you on this list. I’m sure I’ve expanded the horizons of your Green Gables fan quite a bit between the ones I’ve already selected.
  17. ‘Life is Worth Living’ Keychain – Of all the Green Gables items so far on this list, I would prefer this the most. That might be because I’m notorious for losing my keys.
  18. Bookmarkers – I wish I had seen these Anne of Green Gables page flags months ago! Even if I never used them, I would still love looking at them. There’s also this themed book line marker set (that’s a bookmark designed to flag your line, not a marker!) that would be so handy with my habit of reading 5 books at one time that I’ve developed since becoming a mom.
  19. ‘Tomorrow is a New Day’ Purse Hook – We all have those moments when we don’t want to move our purse to a sticky restaurant floor. If you haven’t had that moment, then you can borrow my toddler to experience it. At any rate, this purse hook would be a handy tool to solve that problem!
  20. Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson – L. M. Montgomery’s heirs authorized this prequel to be written by Budge Wilson. If you’re worried about how true to the spirit of Anne that it might be, just take a look at the overall rating. Trust your kindred spirits!
  21. Color the Classics: Anne of Green Gables – Relive Anne Shirley’s adventures in a new way through this delightful coloring book!
  22. Green Gables: Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Favorite Places – A family friend visited Prince Edwards Island on an anniversary trip when I was a young teenager. Because we had semi-frequently discussed the Green Gables series, she brought this back as a souvenir for me. I loved looking at all the pictures of the real-life location that I had learned to love through fictional stories.

    Now I want to read the books! I watched the Avonlea/Anne of Green Gables tv series as a child; they were so good! Maybe they’ll make a big screen movie someday??
