3 Tips for Choosing Phantom of the Opera Themed Present
With more than 100 million viewers, The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most famous stories in the world.
But how are you supposed to choose gifts for it? With so many options, how do you narrow them down and find something that your gift recipient will actually like? Here are just a few tips.
1. Research the Different Adaptations
The Phantom of the Opera is a worldwide phenomenon, and its adaptations have ranged from old, silent films to massively successful Broadway shows.
Which ones has your friend seen? Do they like the ugly monsters from the original versions or the sexy anti-heroes from the modern stories?
It’s an important thing to know before you freak out a Gerard Butler fan with a Lon Chaney poster.
2. Figure Out What They Like
In the same vein as the above, the story of the Phantom has many different themes, concepts and interpretations, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re on the same page as your friend before you buy them anything.
If they swoon at the romance between Erik and Christine, they’ll like different gifts than someone who considers Erik a loathsome jerk who gets what’s coming to him.
3. Buy Something Practical
If they collect snow globes, that’s a great present. If they don’t collect snow globes, that will probably be one of those “oh, how nice” gifts that gets forgotten in a closet because it has no practical use to them.
Whether you’re buying an apron, bracelet, key ring, coffee mug or table lamp, make sure that it’s actually needed and wanted.
Don’t buy something useless just because it has a white mask slapped on it.
