Royal Academy – Christmas gift ideas for the art enthusiast in your life

Gifts that go a long way

This time of year gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us and, in 2020, we’ve been reminded just how special our Friends are. We’ve loved welcoming you back over the last few months and couldn’t have done it without your support. Thank you.

Some might say it’s a little early, but here at the RA we want to spread the joy and kindness of the upcoming season far and wide with a few of our gifting ideas.

Buying from your favourite gallery or museum this Christmas will help them navigate this difficult time. As an independent charity without government funding, the RA needs your help. Every purchase supports our work and helps to secure the future of the RA.

Enjoy 10% off your order with your Friends of the RA discount – simply enter the promo code FRIENDOCT at checkout*.
