  • 28 November 2013

From lamps inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright to a Whistlejacket umbrella, we choose our favourite art-inspired Christmas gifts that won't break the bank.

1. Howard Hodgkin gift card
£25, The Art Fund 

Created exclusively for the Art Fund by British artist Howard Hodgkin, this limited-edition gift card is perfect for framing and is printed on high-quality white velvet paper. What's more, all proceeds go towards purchasing art for British public collections.

2. Whistlejacket umbrella
£20, The National Gallery

Everybody needs a good umbrella, and what better way to brighten up a rainy day than with George Stubbs' rearing stallion? If you're not a Stubbs fan, the National Gallery also sell brollies inspired by Van Gogh's Sunflowers and Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I.

3. Ai Weiwei handkerchief
£22.50, Tate

Emblazoned with a detailed print of Ai Weiwei's 2010 work Sunflower Seeds, which was bought for Tate with help from the Art Fund in 2011, this hand-rolled cotton handkerchief is a beautiful reminder of one of Tate Modern's most memorable Turbine Hall installations.

4. Constable, Salisbury Cathedral From the Meadows print
£24.95, EasyArt

The Art Fund has teamed up with EasyArt to offer quality prints of works we've funded, like this beautiful reproduction of Constable's Salisbury Cathedral From the Meadows, which we helped to buy for the Tate collection earlier this year. If landscapes aren't your thing, why not browse a selection of prints inspired by our contemporary Artist Rooms collection?

​5. Guggenheim lamp by Megara
£24.65, CultureLabel

Designed by Zita Watkin in collaboration with Australian manufacturers Megara, this lamp is a beautiful tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic design for the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Constructed from lightweight translucent plastic that gives its light an ambient glow, the lamp can also be collapsed for easy transportation.
