I think "Some Who Wander Are, Indeed, Very Much Lost" would suit the average Christmas shopper (or gift recipient).

Christmas is the single biggest source of pointless wealth-destruction in the known universe, excepting the Military-Industrial and Security-Industrial Complexes...

Bah, humbug. Etc.

Hanging around Facebook too long... I was desperately searching for a like button to this post... and a high need to share this!

Thanks Wayne for this post... one of the best this year!

While following a wholly unrelated line of search to etsy.com, I came across what seemed at first glance to be a gift for the Tolkien collector who has everything: a wall clock made from one of the vinyl soundtrack discs from the Bakshi Lord of the Rings. Though, on second thought, it gives me pause that someone has "recycled" what appears to be a perfectly good LP (there are many such clocks to be had on Etsy).

But wait! What about this miniature doll made in Tolkien's image?

Or a snazzy Legolas hoodie?

Or a T-shirt with the warning: Don't Piss Off the Ents?

One could do without the many bits and pieces with the legend "Not All Who Wander Are Lost". And there are enough items adapting trademarked or copyrighted sources to keep lawyers busy into the new year.

Now, if I were a kid again, I would definitely want one of the Tolkien-inspired cloaks, like this one, or a seriously cool set of strap-on dragon wings.

Happy holidays from Christina and me!

Wayne

Thanks for the heads-up on this, Jeremy - I don't generally buy US books, but I had the US CoH Deluxe and went for it for the sake of completeness. At US $2.92 (3.5% of list price) for a shrinkwrapped copy, it seemed like a fairly good deal !

Interestingly (to a tiny minority of people who care about insignificant book facts), it is a couple of mm thinner than the UK version, presumably being printed on slightly thinner paper (and the slipcase is correspondingly thinner). The spine is also slightly more curved.
