Amelie the Movie - Gifts and Memoribilia
Looking for Amelie Inspired Gifts?
This page is dedicated to helping you find hard to find Amelie items. Some items you will only find on Amazon France or Amazon Germany. You'll also get some great ideas for creating your own unique photo booth gifts from scratch.
I've also included scans and more information on a great Amelie collector's book that has very detailed maps to help you tour Amelie filming spots in Paris as a tourist.

- Hardcover Collector's Book - Le Fabuleux Album d'AmÃ©lie Poulain

- Amelie's Pig Lamp
I have only found this lamp at Amazon.de. It is just adorable though. I'll keep my eyes open if it pops up anywhere in the US though!

Amelie Filming Locations - Going to Paris? Want to Walk where Amelie Walked as a tourist?
The scan pictured above didn't come out perfect because it's a double page spread from Le Fabuleux Album d'AmÃ©lie Poulain... I love how it breaks down exactly where Amelie and Nino walked in the film! So I suggest you snag your own copy of Le Fabuleux Album d'AmÃ©lie Poulain before departing for Paris so that you too can enjoy all the Amelie tourist spots. You can also go to this tourist webpage to learn more about the sites in the Amelie film.

Inexpensive, Romantic Amelie Inspired Photo Booth Gifts
Give a Personalized Photo Booth Strip as a Gift
A fairly inexpensive gift (not to mention a great keepsake and fun one to create) would be your own photo booth photo set.
Step 1 - It's hard to find a good old fashioned photo booth these days (most of them are digital and print out on paper, instead of the old fashioned 4 strip photos). However, this link has a list of current photo booths on a Google map.
Step 2 - Get some props for some great photos (like the googely-eyed magnified nerd glasses, Zorro mask and cape Amelie used) and stuff them in a backpack or purse so that you can easily take them out inside the photo booth to take some photos.
Step 3 - Go and have fun!! Even if you're taking photos by yourself, you're doing it for someone you care about or love. If it's for a significant other - be sexy and flirty and but most of all always be creative!! The more creative you are, the better the photo strip will be!

Where to Buy Amelie's Gnome - So You Can Take Your Own Gnome Travel Photos
This is the ACTUAL gnome that was used in the Amelie film. However, the gnome was modified (wheelbarrow removed, and pants painted red to match hat). Amazon rarely has it in stock but you can currently purchase from http:
This gift set contains a minituare gnome with travel books and information about gnomes. Way cool as a gift.
Here's a silly kung-fu style gnome.

Amelie Inspired Journal and Photo Booth Projects - For the Truly Obsessed
- ameliejournals - community project
In 2004 several people started their own Amelie Inspired journals.
I participated in a few great photo booth collaboration journals on the nervousness.org community. Look and see if you can find a current one to participate in, or start one yourself!
- 1000 journals
This isn't exactly Amelie inspired, but about 10 years ago 1000 journals were sent out to see what people would do with them. Very interesting and there's even an indie film about them now!
1000 Journals on Amazon
Several years ago I TRIED to participate in this project. It was a series of 1000 journals (all with intricate designed covers) that were sent out to a series of people all over the world. Each journal had a list of people (and their mailing address) that were supposed to get that journal in order of sign up. Unfortunately, all the journals I signed up for were lost before they reached me. It's facinating that only one journal made it back "home" to Someguy (out of 1000). This is a documentary about the project.
