Gift Ideas for the Olivia Newton-John Fan

Olivia Newton-John is one of the most iconic singers of all time, going strong after over 40 years in the recording industry. For a true fan, a gift themed to the singer is the perfect choice.

Olivia Newton-John dolls are great for any collector. Mattel produced several dolls of Olivia's depiction of Sandy in "Grease." There is a doll with Olivia's first school dress outfit, the yellow iconic fifties skirt and jacket worn when she sings "Summer Nights." Another one features her outfit worn for "You're the One that I Want," the black latex pants and leather jacket. There's also one of Olivia wearing the cheerleading outfit Sandy wore when she was first reunited with Danny, and there are others still, including one's of Barbie's little siblings in Sandy and Danny dress. Some of the dolls can still be found in toy stores or Big Lots, but you may only find others on online stores and auction websites, such as eBay. Franklin Mint also released a Sandy doll. There was also a Limited Edition Collector's Series of Grease dolls (Sandy, Rizzo and Frenchy) in 1998.

Concert tickets just may be the most coveted of items for any Olivia Newton-John fan. As she is rumored to tour in 2020, you may want to create an "I.O.U." for tickets alongside a smaller item, such as an imported CD or photograph. Photo tour books from past concerts your fan friend may have attended are often much appreciated as well.

Consider buying a gift that will last all year: membership to the popular Olivia fan club, Only Olivia. Olivia has no official fan club, and there are others. However, OnlyOlivia.com offers a great fan club, with many benefits for the reader. Perks include bi-monthly magazines give fans insider info and interviews with people in the know in Olivia's life, with a past issue even dedicated to her daughter, Chloe, that included an exclusive interview with Chloe. A photograph of Olivia also comes with each issue.

A DVD of a movie starring Olivia is also appreciated by any fan. The Disney DVD club offers a DVD of Olivia Newton-John's great Christmas movie, "A Mom for Christmas." Since it's unavailable anywhere else officially except the club, your fan just may not have this movie. It's a great gift option.

Consider giving your friend a bottle of Zamu, a health food drink that Olivia has recently promoted all over the world, as part of the Amazon Herb Company, the environmentally aware business owned by Olivia's husband, John Easterling.

There are many gifts that an Olivia fan would love. Be sure to cater to your friend's favorite aspect of Olivia's career, whether it be her music, movies or recent role as businesswoman with the Amazon Herb Company.
