Struggling to find perfect presents for the special man in your life? Take that Jeremy Clarkson DVD back to the supermarket and head to the Art Fund’s online shop to browse our range of creative gifts, from cufflinks to jigsaw puzzles. As ever, proceeds from the shop go towards buying great art for British museums and galleries.
1. Measuring tape cufflinks
Created from real measuring tape sandwiched in resin, these cufflinks – designed by jeweler Tamsin Howells – make for a striking present.
2. Brueghel jigsaw
This luxury 250-piece wooden jigsaw puzzle was created to celebrate the saving of Brueghel’s Procession to Calvary in 2010.
Signed by author and Art Fund trustee Christopher Lloyd, this beautifully presented hardback explores 266 masterpieces from British collections, with short biographies of each artist and histories of the museums or galleries which host the works.
Each year the Art Fund commissions an artist to create a 'brushstroke', a unique piece of art available exclusively from the Art Fund shop. Sir Howard Hodgkin’s limited edition brushstroke makes for an eye-catching decoration, framed in natural ash and printed on white velvet rag.
These colourful postcards featuring details from the Nostell Brueghel are great for the gent who likes to keep in touch, plus are a perfect stocking filler.
