Advent Calendar: Swansea’s strangest Christmas gift
For each day of advent we will be looking at the club shop of each Premier League club to pick out the strangest or oddest gift.
Today is the turn of Swansea City, who haven’t exactly smashed into the Christmas market. Whilst other clubs have up to 100 different products created and branded especially for the festive period (surely the time when club shops are at their busiest?), Swansea’s Christmas section lists just four things. Three of these (Swansea annual, party invites, party banner) have no relation to Christmas specifically, leaving just one themed product.
That product is the gorgeous snow globe, which is decribed below:
“Plastic Christmas dome containing picture of Swansea City players in a huddle and black Swansea City AFC crest”
All very standard, but this is then followed up with the beautiful pithy instructions for use: “Shake to Snow”
It sounds like the name of a potential Christmas number one from Rihanna.
Still, we should be grateful to the Swans for not flogging any other branded Yuletide ware.
