Christmas is coming, and the Art Fund shop has a wide selection of gifts for art lovers of all ages. From handcrafted earrings to T-shirts your children can design for themselves, we've picked five great presents that won't break the bank.
Even better, all the proceeds go towards acquiring great art for British museums and galleries!
1. Tea towels
This pair of screen-printed tea towels features two ArtFunded works – Tile Panel with Flowers, ArtFunded for the V&A in 1923, and Women on the Ryõgoku Bridge, ArtFunded for the British Museum in 1918 – in two different colours.
Each of these three handmade sketchbooks is embossed with a different Robert Mapplethorpe photograph from the Artist Rooms collection: Frogs, Grace Jones and Lowell Smith.
3. Desk diary
This spacious, week-to-view diary features a different flora-and-fauna themed ArtFunded work every month, including pieces by Katsushika Hokusai, JMW Turner and Francis Danby.
4. Measuring tape earrings
These striking tape measure earrings designed by artisan Tamsin Howells are hand-crafted from tape measures and resin. The result is stylish, distinctive and easy to wear.
Let your children's creativity bloom with these do-it-yourself, 100% cotton T-shirts. Follow the included template or imagine your own design, with 12 machine-washable, heat-fixable fabric crayons.
