Find ideas for 10 Unusual Twilight Gifts!
Looking for a gift for the ultimate Twilight fan in your life, but stuck because they have, well, EVERYTHING?
Then find something right here on this page that is sure to bring a smile to the face of any TwiHard.
Whether you are looking for the ultimate Christmas gift for your Twilight fan, a Cullen birthday surprise or an inexpensive Twilight stocking stuffer, there are lots of ideas below for unique, unusual and special Twilight gifts.
1. Twilight Paper Bag and Scrapbook Albums
There are some beautiful handmade Twilight scrapbook albums available from sites such as eBay and Etsy. They range from complete books with embellished pages filled with Twilight quotes and pictures, to themed books such as The Wedding of Bella and Edward or the Cullen Family Album.
They can range in size from small little booklets of a few pages, to more complex books with tons of pages and pockets full of extra goodies.
Paper Bag albums are mini scrapbook albums made out of paper bags! Several bags are usually fixed together to make a book, decorated and then embellished.
These albums are generally one-of-a-kind creations, so if you want to give a really special and unique gift that no one else will have, then this is a great choice!
2. Twilight Artwork
It's fair to say that most teenage (and even adult!) Twilight fans' walls will be adorned with Twilight posters. So give them something a bit more impressive to hang above their bed - an Edward Cullen painting, a sweeping Twilight canvas, or how about an original drawing?
There are often both original giclee canvas paintings and canvas prints available, so you don't have to break the bank. If you pick a high-quality artist who has created an eye-catching scene or portrait, then you're on your way to giving a fantastic Twilight gift!
3. Twilight ACEOs
ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals, and these collectable artworks also go by the name of ATC, or Artist's Trading Card, which is where the trend began. They are small pieces of artwork measuring 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches, and you can either buy originals, limited edition prints or open edition prints. You can find out more about what these cards are and their history in the article What is an ACEO or ATC?
You can find Twilight ACEOs for sale by artists on eBay - an original will cost you more than a print, but price will vary depending on the quality of the artist's work and whether they have established a following of fans who like to bid on their items.
Buy your TwiHard an ACEO of Edward, Bella, Jacob or another of their favourite characters - choose from paintings or moody pencil sketches!
4. Twilight Cook Book
Does the TwiHard in your life love to cook? Are they a fan of cupcakes, or always wanting to throw a Twilight-themed party? Then this would make the ideal gift!
Intertwined in the pages of Love at First Bite, you will find Bell's Lasagna, Harry's Famous Fish Fry, Mushroom Ravioli, Blushing Bella Punch, just to name a few.
Your senses will be filled deep with the sweet aroma of mouthwatering I Dare You to Eat Pizza Edward, and sinfully delicious Red Velvet Cake. You know when the rooster crows, it is time to awaken your sense of taste and take a Bite at Dawn to Lemon Blueberry cake, Plum Pecan Waffles, or Grand Slam Sundae.
Red juicy ripe vine tomatoes marinated in raspberry vinaigrette tempts the taste buds and is a featured salad in the There Are Cold Cut Sandwiches in the Fridge section. Pucker up and take a long cool sip of Sparkling Honey Lemonade in a citrus salt rimmed glass, one of the virgin recipes found in the beverage chapter.
Give into your epicurean temptation and take a bite into Love at First Bite: the Unofficial Twilight Cookbook. The recipes will leave you breathless and hungry for more. Besides luscious recipes, you'll also find cast lists for Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse, as well a Twilight Party Planning Checklist, Bella's Prom Planner, and tons of trivia. Also find invaluable resources on upcoming Unofficial Twilight Conventions, Twilight Cooking Classes and more.
There are tons of mainstream Twilight items out there on the high street, from jewelry to home décor, stationery to replica props. So if you want to give something completely unique and different, why not turn to one of the gifted artisans on eBay or Etsy and find a handmade item instead?
From ornate bookmarks to decorated boxes, photo frames to Christmas ornaments, stand out from the vampire crowd and find a truly one-of-a-kind Twilight present!

6. Twilight Autographs
Another great gift idea is to find an autographed photo or other item, signed by your Twilight fan's favourite character!
There is a wide choice available, from signed Twilight photos and memorabilia to autographed candid shots of the cast. Here are some ideas for signed photos:
Collect the Cullens...
Genuine Signed Twilight Photos from the Official Merchandisers
Always make sure you are buying a genuine autograph! If in doubt, ask the seller as many questions as possible about the item. Ideally look for autographs with a COA (certificate of authenticity) but remember, these can be faked too. The best thing to do is buy from a reputable seller.
Creation Entertainment are an officially licensed merchandiser for Twilight and organize the many official Twilight conventions, so you know that all the autographs in their eBay store are genuine.
7. Twilight Replica Props
Replica Props, Clothing and Bedding
With genuine Twilight props impossible to find, replica props are the next best thing. There are lots of items around, with some of the jewelry in plentiful supply both online and on the high street. So what to choose in terms of something that little bit extra special?
Here is my pick of the best - I've spotlighted my two favourite items below and then added a few extra ideas underneath, plus where to hunt down replicas on eBay,
Bella's Party Dress
If you're buying for a Twilight girl who loves to dress up, then this design is perfect - it's an authentic prop replica of the dress Bella wears to her birthday party at the Cullens' in New Moon.

More Twilight Replica Ideas
Carved Wooden Wolf Charm
Perfect for making customized Twilight jewelry or any piece of altered art or handmade décor with a Jacob or wolf pack theme!
8. Handmade Twilight Jewelry
There are lots of pieces of Twilight jewelry available including many prop replicas of the jewelry worn by Bella and the Cullens in the movies.
The range of handmade items inspired by the movie are often extremely beautiful and intricately made, so it is definitely worth checking out this avenue of Twilight jewels for that extra special gift!
This hand-carved wooden wolf charm attaches securely to your bracelet with a wire-wrapped sterling-silver headpin and 4.5mm sterling silver split-ring. No tools required. The headpin is inserted from the belly of the wolf through to the wolf's back, and then wire-wrapped.
Some sellers glue base metal wire into the wood and leave a simple base metal eyepin for attaching, which can come loose under stress or if the charm gets wet. If you buy the cheap charm first, you'll be back for the well-made one later!
