With the festive season fast approaching, shoppers across the country will be gearing up for Christmas, eager to tick off their gift list.
If the thought of braving the high street or devoting evenings to endless online browsing fills you with despair – look no further than the Art UK Christmas gift guide!
To help take the stress out of Christmas shopping, we've compiled a selection of the finest gifts from the Art UK Shop.
The shop is a fantastic way to support public art collections – your favourite museums and galleries up and down the country. The money from sales goes directly back to collections.
Whether you need a stocking filler to brighten up Christmas morning or you're looking for something special for the art lover in your life, this is your one stop shop.
The perfect stocking filler
If socks and chocolate oranges just won't do this year, you'll love this selection of superb stocking fillers.
A favourite with the Art UK team is Art Oracles – a card game offering helpful mantras from some of the world's most popular artists. Take inspiration from Paul Gauguin who encourages us to 'exaggerate the subtle' or take Jean Cocteau's advice and 'find your future in the past'.
Keen to refresh your interiors in 2020? Explore our range of beautiful homeware. From cushions and delicate glassware to mugs and tea towels – there's something to suit all decors.
Fun and games
