The 12 gifts of Shakespeare
From decorations and books to digital theatre experiences – here are the best Shakespeare-inspired Christmas presents for 2020
Digital tickets to Christmas at the (Snow) Globe
With undoubtedly more of our time being spent indoors this Christmas, how about gifting someone you love with a truly spectacular festive film to watch?
Christmas at the (Snow) Globe returns this year as a made-for-film event. Join Sandi Toksvig and the gang for laughter and carols as they save the magic of the holiday season.
We’ll email the gift directly to the recipient on your preferred date so you can just sit back and bask in the glow of being the best gift-giver of all time!
Wooden Shakespeare Decorations
Add some Shakespearean sparkle to your Christmas tree with our selection of wooden decorations.
From Shakespeare himself, to our wooden ‘O’, to his much-loved characters, there’s a beautiful bauble suited for all trees.
A Tudor Christmas
Contrary to popular belief, our modern Christmas wasn’t in fact invented by the Victorians. Many of our favourite festive traditions date back much further to Shakespeare’s England.
Learn more about the origins of carol-singing, present-giving, mulled wine and mince pies in A Tudor Christmas.
Give the gift of Shakespeare for a full year with our Gift Memberships.
As a Member, not only will you support our work, you’ll also get access to exclusive events, copies of our Globe magazine, and priority booking for theatre productions when we reopen our doors in 2021.
Globe Theatre Cufflinks
Wear your heart on your sleeve with these stunning ceramic and silver plated cufflinks of our very own Globe Theatre.
Each cufflink features a photographic image of part of the theatre’s iconic architecture, and is handmade with the finest white earthenware clay.
‘I like this place’ porcelain mug
There’s nothing better at Christmas than warming up on a snowy winter’s day with a cup of warm hot chocolate (and all the marshmallows!)
Our favourite mug is made of lovely white porcelain with a star-filled illustration of the Globe Theatre on both sides, alongside the quote from As You Like It.
A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories
We love settling down to a good story at Christmas time. Treat younger readers to this beautiful anthology of twelve of Shakespeare’s best known stories, retold for children.
Featuring much-loved classics such as The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Othello, each tale is stunningly illustrated by Alice Lindstrom.
Shakespeare’s Globe Christmas Card
Oh, let it snow!
Let a loved one know you’re thinking of them this Christmas and New Year with our red-nosed reindeer, festive snowman, or Santa’s catchphrase belly-laugh Christmas cards.
Shakespeare On Demand
The hilarious Twelfth Night, with Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry, makes for perfect viewing.
