We’ve got Christmas covered this year with a selection of gift ideas to help you surprise someone special and support the work of heritage organisations.
1. Pick a place they love
Create a unique, personal gift and support our work. Our dedicated online gift shop has a huge range of beautiful images – from striking landscapes and historical architecture, to animals in the wild, trains, planes and automobiles; sports stadiums and famous works of art. There’s something for every interest, with speedy delivery available in the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.
2. A heritage gift that will last all year
Our friends over at English Heritage have a range of calendars, featuring beautiful imagery and space in each month to record important dates and events. There’s a whole range, so that your pick, and you’ll be supporting the upkeep of many important historic places in the process.
3. Great Reads
Browse our online bookshop for titles to delight heritage hobbyists and history buffs alike.
4. Give them free days out for a year!
Membership gives your loved one access to their favourite places all year round. There are lots of membership options available; English Heritage gives you access to over 400 historic places, and the National Trust opens the gate to 500 days out.
Many heritage organisations offer membership with perks such as member magazines and special events access. Check out what’s on offer from Twentieth Century Society, SPAB and the Victorian Society.
5. Look to your local Museum shop
Museum shops are often filled with carefully curated items, from stylish home ware to jewellery, books and educational toys. Many also sell online so you can have a browse for inspiration. Our favourites are the V&A, the Science Museum and the National Railway Museum Shops.
6. Help them be part of something truly special
Arts and heritage organisations rely heavily on kind donations from the general public. You can easily donate to a project on sites like Art Fund and Crowdfunder with donation options to suit any budget – there’s often rewards on offer for donors.
