Queen Elizabeth II’s life and reign is at the forefront of Netflix’s highly addictive drama series “The Crown.” Between Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend’s love affair, Queen Elizabeth and Margaret Thatcher’s complicated relationship, and Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s troubled marriage, nothing is off limits in this lavish world brought to screen by series creator Peter Morgan—and streamers can’t get enough. So, with the holiday season upon us, now is the time to spoil your “The Crown”-obsessed loved ones (or simply yourself) with some royal family-inspired gifts. 

Between coffee table books, Meghan Markle’s favorite candle, tea sets, and whimsical art prints, these holiday gifts will make you feel like the reigning Queen (or King) of gift giving this season.
