Happy Cyber Monday, a time to shop in our jammies, double-check our gift lists, budget, and passwords. But what to get the mystery lover in your life? Let’s face it, Peace on Earth, and Goodwill to Men isn’t usually compatible with murder and mayhem.
Never fear, I’m here to help you make this year a Mystery-Lover’s Christmas.
First, getting into the holiday spirit:
Who wants to eat those predictable, boring snowman and reindeer cookies? Why not make cookies shaped like the Great Detective himself:
And the Christmas tree should reflect the owner’s personality, don’t you think? Here are some ornaments that really convey that Christmas feeling for the mystery fan:

For a Christmas gathering:
Want to put the “FREEZE!” into your Christmas punch? Make gun-shaped ice:
Or cozy up with wassail or hot cocoa in these stylish mugs:
Then, while lounging against a comfy pillow,
…gather the family for a puzzle game of “To Kill a Lawyer”:
To Kill A Lawyer: A Mystery Jigsaw Thriller
When it comes time to pull out the stockings, what crime lover wouldn’t be thrilled to find this:
For that special loved one who writes as well as enjoys murder mysteries, this is sure to please:
…which can be stored in this attractive pen holder:
Have a runner in the family? He or she would be happy to wear this on the trails:
Keeping My Cardio Up with Sherlock Holmes

These are great! Definitely bookmarking this post for all kinds of reasons. Thanks for doing the footwork. 🙂
You bet, Piper! So glad you got something from this collection of goodies. 😉
Great ideas! I love that pen holder!!
Thanks Kass! The pen holder caught my son’s eye, too.
I have completed my shopping – some on-line, some the traditional way. Packages wrapped and nestled under the tree.
Now on to the banking portion of this year’s Christmas madness.
I love the gift ideas you always find. I used to have the To Kill A Lawyer jigsaw puzzle/game. I work for lawyers so, how apropos?

Wow, you are amazing, Patricia! I’m in awe. I’ve barely started my shopping. I’ve never played the jigsaw game, but it looks like it would have appeal in certain circles, LOL.
Oh, these are absolutely inspired!! Thanks for sharing them, Kathy!
Margot, thanks so much! 🙂
Ooh, I like the Spy pen Kathy. That is super cool! 🙂
It does look cool, doesn’t it? I love to see which item my readers will zero in on. Up for a little surveillance, Karen? *wink*
