The best Shakespeare-inspired gifts to say ‘I love you’ this Valentine’s Day
From a book of poetry to theatre experiences and tickets – here’s the ultimate gift guide for your valentine or palentine
Afternoon Tea and Tour Gift Experience
Take a tour of the Globe Theatre and listen to our expert storytellers bring the space to life before feasting on a scrumptious afternoon tea, inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at Swan Bar & Restaurant.
Don’t go for the basic ‘roses are red, violets are blue’ variety of poems this Valentine’s Day. Share a collection of 154 of the most beautiful sonnets in history, with our handsomely bound edition of Shakespeare’s Sonnets with white-blocked blue leather covers and gilt edged pages.
Nothing could be more romantic than an evening spent in our intimate jewel-box, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Treat a loved one or your best friend to a night under the flickering glow of candlelight as our winter 19/20 season continues with Swive [Elizabeth], The Taming of the Shrew and Women Beware Women.
Shakespeare On Demand
Having a quiet night in this Valentine’s Day? Grab your popcorn and snuggle down on the sofa for an evening of Shakespeare with our selection of productions on DVD or why not download them on Globe Player.
Much Ado Quote Poster
I do love nothing in the world so well as you.
Benedick and Beatrice. Arguably everyone’s favourite sparring couple from Shakespeare. Adorn your walls with our print version of Benedick’s declaration of love from Much Ado About Nothing, designed especially for our production as part of our summer 2020 season.
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Let your loved one know they are more lovely and more temperate than the sun with our intricate ceramic brooch featuring Shakespeare’s iconic line from Sonnet 18. With flower detailing and a creamy white background, each brooch is lovingly handmade and presented in a gift box.
Much Ado Tote Bag
Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.
Everyone totes loves a bag. Sustainable, practical and delightfully floral, our Much Ado About Nothing tote bag includes violets, geranium flowers, roses and blackberry leaves, as well as a quote from the play. What’s more, it has medium length straps making it ideal for carrying over your shoulder, plus a handy zipped internal pocket.
Romeo & Juliet Mug
Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Is there anything better than a cuppa? Brew up a (loving) storm with this Romeo & Juliet mug, perfect for your morning tea or coffee in bed this Valentine’s Day, (or the morning after the night before…)
