  1. “Cool Story, Poe” T-Shirt

Every true Poe fan should have his face on a shirt. This one plays on the saying “Cool story, bro” and features the master of the macabre himself, along with the infamous raven. It comes in a few colors, but this red one really sticks out to us. If you like this one, make sure to check out some of our other highly recommended book shirts.

  1. Edgar Allan Poe Candle

Cardamom, absinthe, sandalwood. While I can’t say for sure that this candle smells like the author (which might be for the best!), it can bring a cool literary vibe to whichever space you choose. I like this gift for English teachers especially so that we can turn off the lights, light the candle, and let a Poe audiobook spook your children into Nevermore.

How else are you going to carry your books? This tan, toned-down Poe tote makes it so that you can hold your gothic fiction indie bookstore picks right beside your fresh produce from the market.

  1. Edgar Allan Poe Collected Works

No Poe fan is satisfied until they delve into the weirdest and spookiest of Poe’s works. Poe was prolific, and some of the lesser-known stories are some of his best. That’s why having a collection of all of Poe’s work is essential for die-hard Poe fans. And it helps that this gorgeous leather-bound book looks so great in bookshelves.

A good mug is a gift that readers will definitely get use out of. Cold days can be made even more cozy with a spooky story and their hot beverage of choice. Try giving this gift with something like a packet of novel teas to keep with the literary vibe.

  1. Poe Fingerless Gloves

Do you love gothic fiction? Then wear it! Rep these super cool Poe fingerless gloves and look like the macabre master you are. And of course, stay warm–but still have phone access! I love the prose included on the gloves, but the raven at the thumb might be my favorite part.

  1. Edgar Allan Poe Secular Candle

These prayer candles are notorious for featuring some of our favorite celebrities, and thankfully that includes writers as well. This is the perfect spooky decorative item to light in Fall months and illuminate a space with Poe’s face.
