Do you know a Downton Abbey addict? Perhaps your quick-witted housemate thinks she's the next Violet Crawley? Maybe your mum has delusions of aristocratic grandeur?

Make them happy this festive period with our top ten Christmas presents for Downton Abbey fans...


Keep up with the Crawleys

Make sure your tenants' lunches, galas and bazaars are all marked in this delightful Downton calendar. There’s really nothing worse than double booking yourself. 

Downton Abbey, 2014, Calendar, Christmas

From £6.47 Buy here


Hedonistic headwear

Glam up and channel the 1920s at your next social soiree. Or, you know, just pop it on to watch the Downton Christmas special… 

Downton Abbey, headband, bando, 20s fashion, Downton style, Christmas gifts

From £10 Buy here


Tasteful toiletries

Have lips as kissable as Rose’s, hands as soft as Edith’s or baths as luxurious as Bates (we are using our imaginations here) with the M&S range of Downton-inspired cosmetics. 

Downton Abbey, cosmetics, Christmas

From £5 Buy here


Twenties tech

They might not have had iPhones at the Abbey – they're struggling enough with electric whisks – but that doesn’t mean your modern gadgetry can’t have a vintage 1920’s feel. 

Downton Abbey, iPhone case

From £3.22 Buy here


Nostalgic nightwear

Float around your country pile just like Lady Mary in this vintage style nightdress. Just because you’re not going out to dine, doesn’t mean you can’t look delightfully stylish, dear. 

Downton Abbey, Christmas gifts, Nightdress, 20s fashion

From £45 Buy here


Aristrocratic artwork

Publically profess your love of Downton Abbey with this fun screenprint. It features classic quotes from the series, plus drawings of Matthew and Sybil’s gravestones (may they rest in peace).

Downton Abbey, Christmas gifts,

Sneaky peek

Get the low-down on all the goings on at Downton Abbey, from the director’s chair to the costume cupboard, all without having to blackmail a single lady’s maid. 

Downton Abbey, behind the scenes

From £15 Buy here


Beads and baubles

Drape yourself in jewels, brooches, earrings, necklaces and bracelets that wouldn't look out of place on Violet Crawley's dressing table. John Lewis was totally around during Downton era, too. It’s probs where the Crawleys themselves stocked up on bling. 

Downton Abbey, Jewellery

From £20 Buy here


Status symbol

Make sure everyone is aware of your social standing with this incredibly tasteful tee. We are 99% sure it’s what Robert wears underneath his dinner jacket.

Rewind the drama

Relive the ups and downs of series four again. And again. And again. Or for as long as you can before someone forcibly stops you.
