Everyone uses mugs – if only to store pens and pencils. These bone china cups depicting Ransome’s yachts Peter Duck and the Nancy Blackett should be available from The Nancy Blackett Trust. They cost £19.99 for a pair. The trust also sells a selection of books, audio books and videos for Arthur Ransome enthusiasts with any profits going towards the upkeep of the historic vessel.
Here are some of their other useful mugs that could be bought as a set of three, easily sent through the post:
For a full selection of Swallows and Amazons mugs, please see my earlier post here.
Some of my favourite things the Nancy Blackett Trust stock in their online shop are tea towels, including this one that depicts Spurrier’s map of the lake in the north
Claudia Myatt’s design featuring three of Arthur Ransome’s yachts called, ‘I saw three ships’, makes a good gift. Mugs and tea towels make great presents for sailors.
The Little Boathouse can make up coastal map cufflinks, personalised especially for you.
They also have a selection of nautical charms
Jago Silver has a tent and trees necklace for sale, which struck me as being inspired by Wild Cat Island or anyone into walking and camping:
with a campfire kit
and an expresso gift set to use once you go camping:
Jago also has ‘Never Stop Exploring’ notebooks and prints available
The film distributors StudioCanal have a range of jigsaws and other Swallows and Amazon (1974) film merchandise here including a 400 piece jigsaw of Secret Harbour:

What a wonderful selection of items!
Thanks! It takes time, but I’ve enjoyed putting them together.
What incredibly imaginative gifts! There are some brilliant ideas here. I must start saving!
I just hope all these gifts are still in stock. ‘Swallows and Amazons’ themed parties are great for anyone with a summer birthday.
I’ve tried all the links and most of them seem to be still available.
That’s great! Hopefully this will encourage others to be creative.
