Shopping for “Downton Abbey” fans doesn’t have to be difficult. Sure, you can’t buy them a castle or hire a kitchen staff, but you can still make them feel like aristocracy with some great holiday gifts. Below are 16 present ideas that’ll excite your favorite “Downton Abbey” fan even more than the 2015 Christmas special.
Readers -- Plenty of books on “Downton Abbey” have been written. For an easy read, try “The Wit and Wisdom of Downton Abbey” by Jessica Fellowes ($15.99). The book collects the best quotes from the PBS drama. The author is the niece of the show’s creator, Julian Fellowes, and has written quite a few books on his show. For something a little longer, try Jessica Fellowes’ “A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey” ($29.99), which chronicles the events and celebrations the family had in 1924 and offers several recipes for readers to try.
