I will be pointing our suggesto-meter to websites where you can order these cool things so that you can stuff a safe and socially-distanced stocking. One of our entries will be for a website where everything is cheap.
Keep these ideas in mind, and be sure to order early so you have them in time for the holidays.
I first told you about Lights of Broadway Show Cards a couple of years ago in The PopCult Gift Guide, but we’re going to remind you of that gift idea today because they have just released a new series of cards and they have several exciting projects on tap, plus there is no better stocking stuffer for the fan of the theatre on your shopping list than these little gems. With 2020 being such a devestating year for Broadway, and the performing arts in general, this is a nice way to remember that the shutdowns won’t last forever, and we will be able to enjoy live theatre again someday.
The Lights of Broadway Show Cards feature the artwork of Broadway’s reigning caricaturist, Squiggs, and present the stars, theaters and shows of The Great White Way in trading card form. This is the absolutely perfect gift for the theatre fanatic on your holiday shopping list.
The Lights of Broadway Show Cards celebrate Broadway theatre. The stories and the storytellers, the art and the artisans, those who make it all possible and the community embracing it. Shows, actors, directors, writers, designers, and all else in the spotlight or behind the scenes who keep the theatrical world spinning.
Over at The Lights of Broadway website, you’ll find special deals where you can get packs of their new 2020 Edition, with dozens of new faces showing up in the series for the first time. You’ll also find deals on binders and starter kits (which include an illustrated binder and several packs of cards).
Single packs are only five dollars, and you can be a little more generious and get your giftee multiple packs. They’ll fit in a stocking, trust me. The 2020 Series was released in October 2020, the lineup can be seen here. Some cards are more rare than others and there are many super rarities to be found. Each pack contains five cards.
If you want to go whole hog, you can find entire boxes of 36 packs, to shower your theatre fanatic with loads of great cards. You can even find single-show packs for Fiddler on The Roof, Fun Home and Dear Evan Hansen. They have everything from stocking stuffers to mid-sized gifts to BIG TICKET items.
The cards are beautifully printed and feature the amazing art of Squiggs. If you’ve got a theatre kid on your gift list, this is where you need to go. You can order directly from The Lights of Broadway Show Cards website.
This is the perfect gift for the Broadway Baby and die-hard theatre buff on your holiday shopping list.
