Shadowhunter Gift Guide 2016

shadowhunter-gifts

Because there hasn’t been any new official Shadowhunter merchandise this year, it can be hard to find gifts for Shadowhunter fans. However, I have a few ideas for you that will help you! First, here are the best places to find Shadowhunter stuff right now:

Amazon has a little bit more of the “official” merchandise but it is sold mainly by resellers, so quantities are limited and prices can be high.

Etsy is all handmade, so it may take longer for things to ship depending upon the individual shop owners. However, they do have really unique things.

The other two, Redbubble and Zazzle, have a nice selection of items that you can buy year round in different sizes and colors.

Julian’s Sea Glass Bracelet from Lady Midnight (and Where to Buy One)

Julian's Sea Glass Bracelet from Lady Midnight

It is mentioned in the book that Julian Blackthorn has a lucky sea glass bracelet he wears on his left wrist. Jem Carstairs was the one who sent the sea glass via Church to Emma Carstairs as a present, who then made a bracelet for Julian with them. The bracelet is described in the book as being made of “flame red, fire gold, {and} Blackthorn blue” sea glass. Etsy has many beautiful sea glass bracelets, some that look like the bracelet described in the book, and others that are merely inspired by Julian’s. Many of these bracelets are very affordable and look great.

Below is the image Cassandra Clare had in her mind of the bracelet as she was writing Lady Midnight.

Here’s one I found that is similar for $43 and that you can request to have customized. When you order, just specify that you want all red, gold, and blue sea glass:

Here’s another bracelet that is similar and sells for $30:

If you are looking to spend less money, they have many sea glass bracelets that sell for under $20. Some of them say that you can customize them as well. Here are a sample of the ones I found for under $20 (some even for under $10). If you search around the site, I am sure you will find one that suits you perfectly. They bracelets themselves are made of many different materials including leather, metal, and wire.

If you are wondering like I was what exactly sea glass is, it is glass that started as bottles tableware, shipwrecks, etc. and then tumbled around in the ocean for years until it rough edges are rounded off and it starts to look like a gem.

Do you want a sea glass bracelet now that you have read Lady Midnight? I do!

A History of Notable Shadowhunters

A book has been released called A History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld: Told in the Language of Flowers by Cassandra “Cartwright” Clare and Cassandra “Starkweather” Jean.  It is inspired by the Victorian Language of Flowers.

It basically has many pictures of different flowers and explains what kind of flower they are, plus extra information about those flowers. What the Cassandras are doing are they’re making a book where instead of flowers, it is different characters from The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices, Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy, and The Last Hours. Cassandra Jean will be drawing portraits of the characters, and Cassandra Clare will be revealing exclusive details and notes on the characters!
