Great Christmas Gifts for Your Favorite Theatre Nerd

Great Christmas Gifts
By Melissa Bondar

Finding the right gift for your favorite theatre nerd – or a co-working fellow nerd – can seem like a struggle sometimes. I mean, we’re barely making much in the arts anyway. As someone who has been receiving “theatre” themed gifts for 15 years – I’d still be happy to receive any of these. So here are some great Christmas gifts, reasonably priced, that’ll make your loved ones feel like they’re defying gravity.


If you’re shopping for a Hamilton fan, check out these great candles from bubbleandgeek – seriously, this store is my Etsy kryptonite. I’ve bought so many candles from this store and have loved every scent. For $16, you can get 8 oz. of Young, Scrappy and Hungry. Maybe they’d prefer a Favorite Fighting Frenchman or Heart Aflame?

If you’re not a Hamilton fan, maybe a more classic musical like Les Miserables or Phantom of the Opera?


Do pins ever go out of style? I hope not. These cute pins have any theatre nerd covered. Starting at $5.00 you get a 10 pack of pins or magnets with cute theatre slogans. Perfect flair for your ID lanyard!

Maybe Shakespeare is your jam? Check out these packages of 4 pins from a variety of different Shakespeare plays.



These super cute socks are just as relevant whether you’re a high school freshman in your first play or opening your 10thBroadway show. The tech week struggles are real – you might as well keep your toes warm through the suffering.

You can also grab these cute musical note socks for the singers and pit orchestra musicians in your life.



If you have a little more to splurge with, for $39.95, you can completely customize this Broadway plays charm bracelet. Pick their favorite eight shows and IslandGirlzDesigns will create the charms for it. Which 8 would you pick? I know mine would include BatBoy, RENT, Anastasia and Anything Goes.

Or check out BroadwayBodega for bracelets stamped with lines from the best musicals around.


KindlyCrafty has these really neat 5.5” X 5.5” wooden artwork squares that have your favorite lines from pretty much every musical. From $28.00, you can snag a really unique piece of art repping the best lines from your favorite musicals.
