Strictly Come Dancing has become a mainstay of British popular culture over its fifteen-year run and has attracted countless celebrities to its shiny floor throughout the years.
But what to buy for a fan of all things Saturday night? To save you having to shimmy through the shops last minute, here’s our list of the best presents for Strictly fans.
For the backseat dancer…
Do you have a relative that loves Strictly, but loves criticising the dancing of celebrities on it even more? Get them to try dancing for themselves and maybe they’ll realise that their comments about Ann Widdecombe’s fox trot were pretty unfair given that they can’t even manage the most simple steps themselves. Extra points if you give them a taste of their own medicine with unsolicited advice on their dancing whilst they watch the DVD!
Buy at Amazon – £5.00
Game for a dance?
Trivia questions, challenges and mini dance-offs are just some of the fun you’ll enjoy with this official Strictly Come Dancing board game. It even plays the Strictly theme tune and has the voice of Craig Revel Horwood (live studio orchestra and real Craig Revel Horwood not included).
Buy at Amazon – £12.50
For the Strictly addict…
If Strictly’s on their mind 24/7, then this is the ideal mug to have. A subtle design, this mug isn’t too loud so can be swiftly turned away from judging eyes in serious situations at work. Plus, it’s dishwasher and microwave safe. What’s not to love?
