Get your Christmas inspiration in Southampton’s beautiful Old Town!  

Is it time yet? Can we tell you about Christmas at GHT? It’s practically December, so why not?! Now that the GHT shop is fully up and running why not avoid the crowds and wander through Southampton’s beautiful Old Town for your Christmas inspo? We’ve got loads of gifts for every age, taste and budget.

Museum Shop Sunday

As part of Museum Shop Sunday, we are offering a FREE GHT GIFT on all purchases in the shop on Sunday December 1st. Artist Mandy Smith will also be here signing her original prints from 11am – 1pm. Make the most of this wonderful opportunity to stock up on some truly original and beautiful pieces of work by the city’s best contemporary printmakers.

Artist Prints

We have original artist prints, made by Southampton artists and inspired by Southampton landmarks. We also have the Pether range, inspired by the beautiful paintings on show now in the Collections Gallery. And there is also a range of merchandise to go with Keith Harrison’s Bloom exhibition, on show now in the Contemporary Gallery.

Original GHT Merchandise 

Why not treat the kids to a Gunners badge or story book, illustrated by Southampton artist Martin Davey? The book is a lovely gift for ages 3-7. Older children will love the GHT stickers and fridge magnets, as well as the Dark Histories temporary tattoos. And for the artist in the family there are pencil cases, pencils and notepads, designed by Guy Stauber and inspired by GHT’s unique history and Southampton’s iconic coastline. #ArtistsBringMeBackToLife
