40+ Gift Ideas For the History Lover

So for those of you who know, I reenact in like, a million different time periods. I've been asked, "what do you get from each?" This year I'll be publishing my wish list for Christmas 2017. For those of you who have loved ones who LOVE history like I do, this might be a great place to look for gifts!

I've decided to separate these into price ranges, without a specific time period because I reenact from 18th century to Edwardian. I'm interested in quite a few topics, so it's not unusual for me to be thinking of 18th century recipes in one moment and Victorian surgery practices in the next. If it feels all over the place, is! Also, I would like us to support the small business owners of the living history community!

These presents can be stocking stuffers or the *perfect* addition to an impression. Now, this is just an idea to start-if I've forgotten something very important (which is possible, because there are so many amazing period vendors/items), feel free to add it in the comments below.

  1. Would you be willing to add my yarn and historic pattern kits? All of my yarn is 100% wool from historic breeds of sheep raised using 19th century farming methods on my small farm in Northwest Illinois. I sell it in natural colors (no dying), but it dyes beautifully for the dyers among us. I also sell historic knitting pattern kits which include the historic pattern and the yarn. Often non-knitters are afraid to buy yarn, but when you buy a kit you know it is the right kind of yarn and the right amount of yarn for the pattern. Please visit my website at Thanks!

  2. Thanks for this handy post! I have several historically minded friends, and these are excellent suggestions. Of course a few of the items have found their way to my own wish list ; ).
