I’ve often thought that in his day Edgar Allan Poe must have been whatever his generation called a goth. He had very dark ideas, and probably creeped out generations of old-timey people with thoughts of pits and sealing people into walls and whatnot. If you need a gift to give your literature teacher to get on their good side, this Edgar Allan Poe Deluxe Notecard set might do the trick for you.
The set includes a 192-page ruled pocket journal with “Edgar Allen Poe” embossed on it; also included are 20 envelopes and 20 sticker seals. The box that holds it all looks like a vintage book.
It’s a bit costly to give as a teacher’s gift at $24.99, but the value of the Christmas gift for a teacher generally depends on how badly you are doing in the class in my experience. It might also be perfect for the melancholy modern goth on your Christmas list. You can order up the set now at ThinkGeek.
