Everyone needs a chalkboard skull. Use it to write sweet nothing to your boo boo, jot down phone numbers, or announce the night's menu. Or just fill it with curse words. I don't know your life.

2. Edgar Allen Poe Tea Gift Set - $14.95

Owen Acres / Via

For the Poe fan and discerning tea drinker, a gift set that includes "Midnight Dreary" herbal tea blend, a muslin bag, and a pretty tea ball decorated with a raven charm.

5. Van Goth Card - $4.02
