I tried to fight it. I really did, but it finally won. I finally broke down and started reading Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Surprisingly enough, I’m actually enjoying it. So, when the author did an interview on Katie Couric’s new talk show, I tuned in to see what she had to say. One thing that jumped out at me was that Fifty Shades of Grey had inspired the creation of a few thousands products on Etsy. So, like I did with The Hunger Games, I had to check the Etsy out. (See my top five Etsy picks from The Hunger Games here.)
1. Fifty Shades of Grey Christian’s Playroom Scented Bath Set
A blend of mandarin and pepper with cypress, ebony wood, leather, amber and musk (just like the book!) brought to you by BrulezRulez, this gift basket contains lotion, a sugar scrub, soap, three bath bomb fizzies, a tin candle, a corset bookmark and a playlist inspired by Christian’s playroom. Looking for something on a smaller scale? There are two smaller sets in the scent available.
2. Baby Onesies
3. Black Leather Braided Bracelet
Beautifully elegant, this stunning bracelet designed by JuratesJewelry features a subtle tribute to Ana and Christian with removable tassel and handcuff charms. It’s a a great way to show your Fifty Shades of Grey love without going overboard.
4. “I Cry Because Christian Grey is Fictional” Tee
If you’ve ever wished Mr. Grey was real, jerryamsterdam has the tee for you. The book’s iconic tie graphic as a substitute for the “I” is nice touch.
