THE CULTURE GIFT GUIDE IS HERESpoil yourself, or someone else, just promise to go wild – or at least as wild as the year we've just endured
Weekends packed with an assortment of IRL galleries? Gigs? Cinema excursions? Pfft. For art and culture lovers, this year has been a testing ground in thinking outside of the box re: entertainment strategy. Or rather, should we say inside of the box. The box being our dwellings we are now all probably, woefully, familiar with by this point.
‘Tis time to get creative. Especially when it comes to your holiday gifting; whether for yourself or that friend/family member who – in the Before Times – was most likely to suggest checking out that Highly Instagrammable Photography Exhibition.
The 2020 version? DIY. By way of 1970s style cameras: to document the tail-end of a very strange year. David Hockney prints: to serve as a reminder of sunnier climes. Coffee table books: a time capsule of the pre-Covid art world circus (lest we forget #BananaGate).
For that special someone whose spent the majority of this year harping on most about missing an impromptu night out at their local pub, with all the Friday night trimmings (cheap beer, not able to hear what your friends are actually saying above the always-abit-too-loud David Bowie), a quality turntable is a solid choice. For a LOL Bowie alternative, opt for a vinyl from comedian and computer scientist Olga Koch.
For a showstopper stocking filler? Look no further than Louis Vuitton’s monogrammed wireless headphones. A dream of a gift made in fashion tech snob heaven.
