Villa Store: Five perfect Christmas gifts

December 4, 2017

With less than three weeks to go until the big day, we’ve collated the very best Christmas ideas in one place as the holidays draw closer.

Struggling for gift ideas this Christmas? Then look no further, we have everything Villans could want and more ahead of the festive season.

Check out our best five offerings below…

1) Tickets to Villa Park

Give the gift of a trip to Villa Park for two huge games this Christmas and New Year, as we entertain Sheffield United and Bristol City at home.

You could be here for our double-header against our fellow promotion chasers, which are set to be played out in front of bumper crowds.

The Sheffield United fixture takes place on Saturday December 23 at 5.30pm and is our last game before Christmas Day – hence we're expecting a big attendance.

Then, on New Year's Day, also at 5.30pm, Bristol City come to B6 in our first game of 2018 for anther event that is likely to head towards a sell-out.

Secure your place for what are sure to be electric atmospheres under the lights of Villa Park.

Half Season Tickets

You can also guarantee a loved one's place at ALL of our remaining home matches from January 1 with one of our half season tickets.

Half season tickets have been in high demand since going on sale in October, with almost double the average purchased compared to the previous five seasons and more online sales having been made than ever before.

Don't miss our run-in as we aim for promotion and secure your spot at our final 11 home games.

2) Kids for £1

There's also a great deal on offer for kids for the Sheffield United game.

Under 16s can attend the match on December 23 for just £1 when accompanied by a full paying adult.

We want our biggest attendance of the season so far for our Christmas cracker against the Blades – so take advantage of kids for a quid while you still can.

Please note a maximum of three U16 tickets for £1 can be purchased per adult.

At this game we'll be putting on a big Family Fan Zone – something we do at every game to make the whole day enjoyable day and not just the 90 minutes of football.

Our recent ranking in a survey by the EFL placed us first, with 10 out of 10 for engagement with families. 

The EFL added: “Aston Villa’s commitment to families shines through again on this visit, with the Fun Zone, the mascots and especially the staff making this a day to remember for the assessor and their daughter.”

More details on our Fun Zone can be found here.

Along with the Fan Zone, we’re also putting on some special festive touches. 

We’ll have two live reindeer here at Villa Park along with Santa and his sleigh, Mrs Claus and an elf for the kids to come and see. 

3) Become a member for as little as £20

Our official club memberships are also available to supporters this Christmas.

Claret (adult) and Cub (junior) Memberships have proved popular with supporters since going on sale earlier this season.
