Five gifts for art lovers this Christmas
Too often art lovers are misunderstood at Christmas, given neoclassical puzzles, notebooks with blurry artwork covers or a mismatch of random supplies. It’s an odd fact that some of the most creative people seem to be the hardest to buy for, resulting in repeated or unimaginative gifts year in and year out. We decided the time has come to create a list of five thoughtful gifts that art lovers will truly appreciate. From whimsical to practical, stocking stuffers to expensive treats, these options offer something for any fine art enthusiast.
National Art Pass – Art Fund
After a year of lockdown, art lovers anxious to get back to gallery hopping and exploring the latest exhibitions will no doubt appreciate this affordable annual membership. It’s a gift that keeps on giving all year round, including free entry to hundreds of galleries, a guidebook to over 700 venues and 50% off exciting 2021 exhibitions.

Novelty artist figurines – National Gallery
Cute and collectable, the National Gallery’s selection of cartoonish figurines offers ideas for the perfect gift for art lovers looking to customise their workspace. These little figures, renditions of some of the greats alongside tiny easels of their famous works, will revitalise dreary lockdown scenery with a splash of enduring decoration for just £28.

500 Years of British Art – Tate Modern
With so many fantastic exhibitions this year, choosing a single book for an art enthusiast is a daunting task; however, Tate Modern’s latest luxury guide is a great choice for art history lovers and artists alike. Holding 100 illustrations, this collection looks at the past, present and towards the future of the British art landscape.

Fine art face masks – Etsy
A fine art face mask is a winning stocking stuffer this year to bring a spark of whimsy and culture while keeping loved ones safe. Fighting the pandemic and offering customisation options to complement art lovers’ wardrobes, these masks can be bought from most galleries, however, we are particularly fond of this £10 range on Etsy.

Andy Warhol set – LegoArt
Finally, for those who missed the Warhol exhibit this year or any art lovers looking for a unique and relaxing activity, this legendary Pop Art Lego set can’t be missed. Complete with a bespoke immersive soundtrack and acting as a striking decoration upon completion, this £120 gift offers a unique activity and will no doubt be appreciated by creatives over a simple puzzle any day.
