With Christmas time ahead, I suppose that most of you are already hunting for some gifts and stocking fillers for your loved ones, am I right? My advice is pretty simple: if you don’t want to buy another boring tie for your Dad, an absolutely unsurprising hand cream for your Mom, and not particularly creative gift card to a popular chain store for your Partner, visit your closest museum’s shop.
Museum gift shops are real gold mines for those who love original and unique items. I did a quick search and created a small Christmas gift selection from the assortment of three museum shops: the Victoria and Albert Museum Shop, the Charles Dickens Museum Shop, and the Royal Academy of Arts Shop. I focused on those located in London because I had an opportunity to check out their offer personally. Moreover, all of them provide international shipping of their goods, so you can easily do your shopping online, directly from underneath your fav fluffy blanket! Here, enjoy!
PS. Remember that buying your loved one a membership card to his / her favourite museum is always a good idea!
