Unique Gifts for OUAT Television Show Fans

My daughters and I are big fans of the ABC show "Once Upon a Time" known to the shows fans as OUAT (Once Upon a Time).

We have been watching the show from the very first season. Watching OUAT is our Sunday night tradition.

This page was written as part of a challenge to recommend a gift for someone who loves television, our favorite family show came to mind. It also was a useful way for me to do some research to see if there were any good OUAT gift ideas to get for my daughters this Christmas.

I found several good gift ideas. For my girls one of the OUAT Calendar will end up on our walls and the book, Once Upon a Time - Behind the Magic since it features the amazing costumes designed by Eduardo Castro and his assistant Monique McRae.

Grab an apple and cozy up with your Once Upon a Time Mug as you read through the gift ideas for your favorite OUAT fan. You might even find something for yourself.

The Gift of Instant Access

Once Upon a Time on Amazon TV Pass

Perhaps one of the best gifts to give an OUAT fan is the gift of instant access so they can watch Season 4 anytime as an Amazon Instant Video and catch up on the Frozen season.

For those who don't have a television the TV Pass from Amazon is a great way to keep up with the current season and get instant access to the new episodes as they become available.

It is also a great way to re-watch favorite episodes, or as in our case, watch the episodes we missed when traveling this season.


The Gift of Replay

Once Upon a Time Seasons 1, 2 & 3

Once Upon a Time Seasons 1, 2 and 3

Now that we are into Season 4, we often debate some of the details of the story lines. I find myself trying to remember past episodes from past seasons.

Having the entire seasons available to reference is a helpful way to fill in some of the details and remember some of the complex relationships that exist between the various fairytale characters in their fairytale land and in modern day, Storybrooke.

The Gift of Jewels

Emma's Necklaces

Emma Swan's Swan necklace is one of the identifiable iconic jewelry pieces used in the show.

It turns out that Jennifer Morrison who portray Emma Swan had a hand in choosing the necklace. She tweeted during a Twitter interview that she had chosen the necklace to show the connection between fairy tale and reality.

Also, according to Jennifer, swans are thought to represent the connection between divinity and humanity. And we thought the necklace was selected just because her last name was swan.

There is a budget silver-plated replica version of the necklace worn by Emma Swan, but it is not getting many favorable reviews. The karma circle necklace is a bit more budget-friendly than the Pyrrha necklace.

Sparkle Karma Circle Necklace

Dogeared "Karma" Sterling Silver Tiny Sparkle Karma Ring Necklace, 16"+2" Extender

This silver karma circle necklace is similar to the one worn by Emma Swan.

The 1 inch circle is attached in two places to an 18 inch neckchain.

Also available in a Gold version.

Pyrrha necklaces are based on old wax seals.

The 1 inch pendant hangs on an 18 inch chain.

 

Peridot Silver Ring

Peridot Ring Sterling Silver Rhodium Nickel Finish Oval Shape 1.25 Carats Half Bezel Size 6
Peridot Ring Sterling Silver Rhodium Nickel Finish Oval Shape 1.25 Carats Half Bezel Size 6

This peridot ring comes with a 1.25 carat peridot stone set in sterling sliver, rhodium finish.

 

Mary Margaret's Ring

Mary Margaret Blanchard's Peridot Engagement ring is the other notable jewelry from the show. This is the ring that Charming gets from his mother with the instructions to give it to the woman he loves.

This is also the ring that Mary Margaret absently-mindedly plays with as we all wait for her and David to get together in the first season.

There is a replica of Mary Margaret's silver ring with a green peridot stone being sold, but I think the one that I found here might be closer.

The main difference with this one is that there are decorative holes in the ring band and this ring may not have the pronged setting seen in some of the views of the ring.


Anna's Snowflake Pendant

Anna's Snowflake Pendant is playing quite a role in the storyline in both Fairytale land and in Storybrook.

I wonder if there is going to be a necklace coming for the Holidays.

There are a couple of necklaces one being sold on eBay as a Once upon a time, Anna's Frozen snowflake necklace or pendant.

I think the one on right might be closer than the snowflake below, but any silvery snowflake might work well as a thoughtful gift to a Frozen and a OUAT fan.

Drink from a OUAT Mug

During the first season of Once Upon a Time, I was excited when CafePress came out with official OUAT merchandise for the ABC show.

That first season, I ordered a OUAT mug, magnet and a Women's t-shirt with the original ONCE upon a Time logo.

I used the mug a lot when I was writing pages and grading classroom assignments. The mug met an unfortunate end in our sink being hand washed. The magnet is still on the refrigerator holding important kid announcements.

I am waiting for them to put the "Totally Hooked" design featuring Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) on a mug to order a new one.

Costumes from Once Upon a Time

We had a chance to see the Once Upon a Time Costumes up close when they were featured on Main Street in California Adventures in the Fall of 2012. Costumes displayed were Maleficent, Prince Charming, Snow White and the Evil Queen. There was a copy of the Storybook book too.

Unfortunately with the costumes were in a window display, so there is a lot of reflection from the windows, but you can still get some idea of the detailing of these costumes, like in the close up of the Evil Queen's black cape which has red feathers.
