From Pop Art pieces to artist palette plates, we've got Christmas for art fans all wrapped up

1. Grayson Perry silk scarf

One of Lichtenstein’s most iconic works makes a bold and bright cushion cover. Great for fans of Pop Art.

3. Architecture playing cards

Forget Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds, these cards have styles of 20 century architecture as the suits. That’s pre-modernism, modernism, post-modernism, and de-structuralism, in case you were wondering. The individual cards feature notable projects and architects.

Made in crystal, this funky paper weight depicts one of Hirst's most famous works.

The chance to buy an original work by this talented artist. We love this bright and fun monkey image.

It might look like something you’d find in the artist in your life’s studio, but this is actually a rather unusual serving plate. A nice one to put the cheese on.

This limited edition design by the Glasgow-based artist injects a bit of fun into the washing up.
