Championing local artists and the impressive talent of Liverpool and beyond, Liverpool Pictures is an art-lover’s haven of limited edition prints and stunning artwork. The Shankly Gates limited edition print is the perfect gift for LFC fans and enthusiasts.
Tate Liverpool shop – Andy Warhol Memory Game (£12), Alphabet of Arts Mugs (£18)
Offering an enviable range of stylish gifts from beautiful prints to nostalgic games, the Tate shop is a haven for art and design lovers. The Andy Warhol memory game is perfect for Christmas Day fun with the family. The Alphabet of Arts mugs are part of an exclusive collaboration with artist Archie Proudfoot. Every letter is designed in response to an artist or movement. We consider ourselves lucky to have the Tate, and celebrate all those meticulously curated exhibitions.
Lunyalita – Padro Blanco Vermouth (£17.95)
This bottle of aromatized fortified wine has taken Spain by storm in recent years, so it’s no surprise Lunyalita has a variety of the finest vermouths available in their deli. The Padro Blanco Vermouth is in a stunning turquoise and gold bottle; a great gift for drink lovers looking to try something different. We have happy memories of delicious meals at Lunylita with those breath-taking views of the Dock, and a dazzling drinks menu. So the idea of sampling their Vermouth and that turquoise and gold bottle, what’s not to love, is beyond tempting.
Titanic Hotel Liverpool – Stanley Dock: Maya Blue Wellness All About You Voucher (£120)
A spa voucher for Titanic Hotel’s stunning Maya Blue Wellness is the perfect gift for someone who could do with relaxing and unwinding. The voucher includes two treatments, the ESPA Optimal Skin Health Facial and ESPA Personalised Back, Neck & Shoulder massage, plus a delectable afternoon tea in Stanley’s Bar & Grill. His & Hers has been lucky enough to luxuriate in these treatments and they come totally recommended.
