When it comes to Christmas time, it can be hard to find the perfect gift. Especially when the person you’re trying to buy a gift for is a theatre lover, and all the theatres are shut. You can’t buy them tickets to any amazing shows coming up, so how can you find something amazing that’s still within the realm of theatre?
Luckily for you, we’re on the case. We got gifted some exciting products and are road testing them so you don't have to. Below we’ve compiled a list of some amazing gifts that will knock the socks off any theatre lover in your life. Plus, you won’t have to sit through another musical.
Cards Against Humanity - Theatre Pack
You’re probably well-acquainted with the hit card game Cards Against Humanity, but did you know that they made a theatre extension pack? Filled with jokes about Broadway actors, the audience experience, and even embarrassing yourself on stage, this set is sure to win the heart of any theatre lover.
Price: It’s only $9AUD for the theatre extension pack, but if you don’t have the original Cards Against Humanity box, you can get it for $49AUD.

Been There Done That - Showlogue
Is the person you’re trying to buy a gift for a total Broadway nut who thinks they’ve seen it all? Test out their theatre obsession with one of Been There Done That’s Showlogues, a fun scratch map that you can hang on your wall and scratch off each show that you’ve seen. The design is so gorgeous, that once you’ve scratched off all the shows, you’re left with a great piece of art for your room. You can also buy a magnetique custom frame that makes displaying it on your wall a breeze - and think of the great conversation starter it will be when guests come over!
(Note: The images shown above are of Been There Done That's Novelogue).
Price: Currently on sale for $29.90USD!
