6 Great Christmas Presents to buy an Actor this Festive Season 

No idea what to buy the thespian in your life this Christmas? We’ve put together a handy gift guide that will not only put a smile on any actor’s face, but also many of the below will support the arts and local businesses – so everybody’s happy!


1. A Lovely Journal

Whether for audition preparation or reflecting on the development of their craft, actors always have a journal on the go. Make it a nice one and check out the gorgeous range available from our neighbours in The Gutter Bookshop. We particularly love this Oscar Wilde one – a much needed reminder to remain hopeful! 

2. A Shakespeare Themed Face Covering 

Unfortunately facemasks aren’t behind us JUST yet, so why not make it fun? We love this face covering from Etsy. Ideal for the acting studio!

3. Abbey Theatre Digital Membership

A gift that will make a theatre lover smile AND supports your national theatre? A no-brainer! This Digital Membership for the Abbey includes access to exclusive online member events and 20% discount on online shows, among other benefits.

4. Movie Extras Subscription 

Our friends over at Movie Extras also offer subscriptions, with a year subscription costing €89.95. An ideal gift for any actor who is searching for practical on set experience. 

5. Tripod and Filming Light 

Self-taping is the way to go these days, and any actor will be delighted with the gift of a tripod or ring light this Christmas. Check out the range available at Bermingham Cameras in Dublin City. 

6. Fancy Yoga Mat 

Actors know the importance of keeping your body and mind in good shape, and many find a regular yoga practice to be ideal for achieving this. If you really want to make someone smile, gift them this beautiful yoga mat from Yoga Design Lab, available from Arnotts.


Don’t forget, we also have a range of one-to-ones in Monologue coaching, Voice, Singing and more from €55, merchandise and vouchers – ideal for a theatre lover. Find out more here.
