M-e soft furnishings!

Cozy Up with these Tolkien-themed pillows
Every member of the Fellowship is listed, as well as Arwen, Thorin, and the One Ring. The characters and outfits are easily recognizable, from Pippin’s scarf and Merry’s yellow vest to Arwen’s blue gown...

We always go to Killarney in June for the AIMS awards, but I'm half afraid they'll be shut down by then. They're using all those names without a license!

So this lady did a lovely recording of the Song of Nimrodel:

She has a few other Tolkien songs too, though I haven't listened to the others yet.

I would be more likely to buy a shirt that had your old Calvin and Hobbes Éowyn/Witchking cartoon on it.
