Alice in Wonderland Themed Stocking

I haven't seen the new Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version, but I am kind of enchanted with the renewed interest in Alice in Wonderland -- the other day I was in Barnes and Noble and they had a huge display of all sorts of different illustrated versions of this perennial classic. So for today, I present several items around which you could build an Alice-in-Wonderland themed stocking or gift basket:

  • Alice's Enchantmints from Shakespeare's Den. This 0.4 oz tin of mints features a classic Alice illustration and some mints that you can at least pretend will make you grow or shrink!

  • A lovely set of four rubber ink stamps from Etsy seller NikoArt. I featured a giveaway from this seller some time ago, and I just love the simple, clean lines of her artwork. Isn't the White Rabbit especially adorable? Check out her other stamps too!

  • A "Six Impossible Things" magnet from, featuring the classic Carroll quote about believing six impossible things before breakfast.

  • A lovely Alice-themed charm bracelet from Etsy seller Spacepearls; it's a silver beaded bracelet with a silver mushroom charm and tiny dangling red beads. She also has some lovely Alice-appropriate clock, teapot, and teacup necklaces, so be sure to browse through her shop! (That's the thing I love about Etsy shops -- you find the most amazing things! She has a wonderful group of Harry Potter "potions" in little vials too!)

And of course, you can always find a zillion little tidbits from the current Burton/Depp version in stores like Hot Topic and Target. Believe me, there's no shortage of Alice out there these days!
