Looking for a way to demonstrate that you've loved Alice since way before Johnny Depp was involved? T-shirts and baubles are one thing, but the true Wonderland expat ought to be able to play chess, if just a little. (Trust us. It's genuinely fun if you have opponents whose skill levels are close enough to your own.) And there's no denying that well-designed chessmen are aesthetic treasures: check (ha) out the Dorian Chess Set ($80). We love the resinous swirls and the touches of personality in the poses - just try to tell us that the queen doesn't have an attitude. Included, though not pictured here, is a glass board.
