Looking for 2020 Christmas Gift ideas for the burlesque lover in your life? You’ve come to the right place! This year, I’ve got some gorgeous festive treats to suit all budgets, from stocking fillers and feel good festive treats to career-boosting membership ideas. And for those of you that gift internationally, I’ve even included some post-friendly and virtual options too…
If you’re like me and love getting a piece of handwritten post, then I think you’ll enjoy a signed card from me to wish you good tidings for the festive season! You’ll receive a special limited edition personalised greetings card from me, featuring the most popular print from my shoot with Sally Sparrow. You’ll get a handwritten dedication signed by yours truly, with festive greeting just for you! If you order before the end of November it should have time to get to you wherever you are in the world to sit on your mantlepiece over the jolly holidays!
These haven’t been announced on social media just yet, so this is a little sneak preview for you blog readers! I’ve just listed a limited edition print of UK burlesque performer, Felicity Furore. Oh, and it’s signed by Felicity herself! As I said, these are limited edition so they’ll go quickly. Snap one up for your stocking!
As you well know, I’m a bit of a magpie and love anything shiny, and the entirety of the ‘Primp my Costume’ store is a visual delight! Charlotte has over a decade of experience in cabaret and knows her stuff when it comes to blinging-up costumes. Her nipple covers are renowned for being both beautiful and brilliant; they’ll make a wonderful gift for any burlesque fan.
Next week, I get to celebrate both my 11th year in business and my one-year-anniversary of releasing my award-winning book STRIP/TEASE. If you’ve not heard me mention it before, it’s a hardbound coffee table book showcasing my work within the beautiful global burlesque community as a burlesque photographer over the last decade. If you’re ordering it from me directly, I’ll sign it for you too!
Fancy being a part of history in the making? Why not treat the burlesquer in your life to a membership at the Burlesque Hall Of Fame – the world’s only museum dedicated to the world of burlesque. With membership starting from $40/year (£30), not only do you get a gorgeous membership card plus discounted/free entrance to the museum, but also the eligibility to enter the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender and compete for titles including ‘Reigning Queen of Burlesque’. This $80 tier includes a selection of prints too, which make for a beautiful stocking filler.
Looking to brush up on your makeup skills? Maybe you want to nail your winged eyeliner, or perfect that smoky eye look? Ms Moo Make Up – aka Sali my #QueenOfSocials – is an award-winning makeup artist based in Nottingham. She’s offering 1-2-1 makeup lessons fully tailored to your bespoke needs. These can take place in Nottingham at her studio, or over Zoom if you’re either isolating or based a little further afield.
Know a burlesque performer that wants to level up their costuming skills for 2021? Why not treat them to 12 months of Manuge Et Toi’s Tips on Tap – which includes three tutorials/tips each month from making your own staple burlesque garments to embellishment ideas. Considered the number one non-performing figure in the burlesque world, there’s nowhere better to go for your burlesque costuming needs!
Wherever you are in the world, you can now have a shoot with me! My 2020 creative outlet is now a permanent feature so, regardless of oceans and time zones, nothing can keep us apart! At a fraction of the cost of a regular shoot, virtual boudoir shoots are a great way to dip a toe into the world of boudoir photography and are a perfect lockdown 2020 Christmas gift. PS. If you want to gift the photos to someone for Christmas, you’ll need to book in a date with me before 4th December.
Looking for a glam robe to float around in over the festive break? Look no further than Rosie Red. This particular floral floofy robe has been on my own wish list for a couple of years – made of luxury embroidered tulle and the option to add an additional ruffle to the hem for extra decadence. Anyone want to treat me whilst you’re ordering yours?!
The ultimate burlesque lover’s 2020 Christmas gift has to be an in-person boudoir shoot with me. What’s better than the opportunity to celebrate your body with a makeover photoshoot to capture all your glorious self! Sophisticated and timeless images for you to look back on, and remember that incredible feeling whenever you look at them. That really is you in those photos! You can read the reviews from my gorgeous clients here.
