The Twilight Saga Christmas Shopping Guide Part 1

Last year we got hammered with questions starting right after Thanksgiving from boyfriends, husbands, fans, you name it on “Where can I get Bella’s bedspread?” or “Do you have any idea how I can get my girlfriend Bella’s engagement ring?”  So this year, we decided to put together our very own Twilight Saga shopping guide. Now there are a million vendors out there who specialize in Twilight Crafts, and we’d close for all other business if we tried to list all of them. It’s not to say if something isn’t listed here that that product is bad; it just didn’t make our list. These are just a few of our personal favorites.

Tomorrow we will be back with part 2 which will be clothing focused.

Bella’s Bedspread at Target

edbellabedThis is the lovely bedspread, also known as the purple flocked comforter found exclusively at Target.

Here’s the product description:

  • Weave Type: Plain
  • Fabric Treatment: Flocked
  • Bed Topper Features: Jump and Tack Quilting
  • Bedskirt Features: 15″ Drop
  • Includes: Bedskirt, Comforter, 2 Shams included in Full, Queen, King, Cal King set, 1 Sham included in Twin/Twin XL set
  • Polyester
  • Fiber Content: 100 % Cotton
  • Number of Pieces: 4
  • Care and Cleaning: Dry Clean

The set comes with a comforter, 2 shams, and a bed skirt. It has an overwhelming number of 4 star reviews from satisfied customers. Occasionally Target has given us one to give away and it’s traditionally been one of our hotter giveaway items. It’s a nice subtle way of professing your Twilight love in the bedroom without having Robert Pattinson’s or Taylor Lautner’s faces loom up at you. Also, your significant other will probably never know it’s Twilight connected unless you tell him. Prices range from $89.99 to $99.99 depending on size. Target’s current holiday deal includes free shipping.

Bella’s Bracelet ™ and Bella’s Engagement Ring® at Infinite Jewelry

Before there was even a hint at a viable movie, Infinite Jewelry was producing the Bella’s Bracelet ™ and Bella’s Engagement Ring®. Their versions of the ring and bracelet were done in complete consultation with Stephenie Meyer. Lots of painstaking detail went into the wolf on the bracelet to get it just right. The wolf is also made of copper (to look like wood) and not wood because the designers realized that such an intricate wood carving would chip and damage in no time, and they wanted a durable product.

The engagement ring comes in yellow gold (just like the book description) and also white gold. There are various versions of the ring ranging from a fashion edition (given away on the Oprah Winfrey show last year, and mentioned on yahoo) all the way to a fine (real gold) and genuine (real gold and real diamonds) editions.

There are other versions of these products by other vendors, but we personally like this one better. One, the ring is more subtle than the version from the movie which we feel practically swallows your whole knuckle. Two, the wolf carving on the bracelet is the most intricate we’ve, seen and was done by consulting with Stephenie Meyer. In our opinion, it’s hard to go wrong when Stephenie consulted on the design.

They also have other merchandise: watches, necklaces, etc. that are inspired by the Twilight Saga.

Authentic Twilight Star Autographs and photographs at Creation Entertainment

If you are going to go out and spend money on an item signed by an actor, you want to know that that particular actor actually signed the item. Creation has it’s own autograph store. The actors actually signed the items at events run by Creation. We’ve seen a lot of fakes or misrepresentations on Ebay. Thanksgiving weekend Creation has a free shipping special going. Take advantage of it while it lasts.

Aside from their autograph area, they have a photo collection of high quality 8  X10, glossy studio stills and poses that are exclusively at their site (see photo at left). They are perfect for decorating rooms, lockers, etc, and at $ 6.00 it’s hard to go wrong. Call it an over-sized stocking stuffer.

Tonner Dolls has been in the fine doll production business for years. They recently added new Bella and Edward models to their collection. They also have Alice for the first time, as well as all the villain vampires from Twilight. The Alice description reads:

Bella’s Purple Comforter Is Back…While Supplies Last

Have you been trying to get your hands on the purple comforter that Bella has in the Twilight and New Moon movies? Well, Lexiconer Gina wrote in with some news:

“Just wanted to share some great news! For months I (and evidently many others) have been hounding Target to bring back the Bella purple comforter, and it’s finally back!! You can pre-order only at this time. When I put my order in, it said the estimated ship date was May 14-16. And while they aren’t advertising the fact that it’s there, I have no doubt it will sell out quick! If I try to copy and paste the link, it’s really long. So if you go to the Target website and type in “home purple flocked comforter” it’ll come right up. Just wanted to share with you if you wanted to pass it along. ”

We tracked down the link and it’s right here.
