Gift ideas from the MegastoreWhat better way to show a fellow Reading fan that you care this Christmas than gifting them to a Royals stocking filler?
You can either head to the Megastore at Madejski Stadium in person, or alternatively buy online by heading to www.readingfcdirect.co.uk
As well as shirts, scarves, coats, calendars and winter wear there are loads of other affordable prezzies to give someone a Royal treat this year; here are ten ideas…
Playing cards – £4
Once the Queen’s speech is over and the Christmas dinner is settling heavy in the stomach, what better way to relax in the afternoon than with a game of cards with the family? Or if everyone else is drifting off, play a game of Solitaire…
Cufflinks – £10
Off to a Swindon fan’s wedding? Show your affiliation in a subtle manner with a pair of Reading FC cufflinks. Great for all formal occasions.
Gift set – £22
Aftershave, body lotion and hand & body wash – get a Christmas gift set and smell like the pros!
Jumpers – £30
Get in the Christmas spirit with a Reading FC Christmas jumper. Three designs available – elf, snowman and alpine.
Mugs – £6
We would all prefer to win a cup, but a mug isn’t a bad substitute! Two different designs for these festive Royals vessels.
Christmas card – £2
Designed by 12-year-old Niamh Walker, all profit from the sales of these cards will go to Helen & Douglas House – the chosen charity of her school.
Reindeer – £10
A plush and cuddly reindeer is an ideal stocking filler for young Royals this Christmas.
Santa hat – £7.50
We all know that Santa is a true blue, not a red…
Slippers – £8
We have two televised away games in December, and what better way to lounge around in front of the sofa and support your team than in Royals slippers?
Lucky socks – £7.50
We all know that the match result depends on whether or not you wear your lucky socks… so help us claim a win with these!
