Gifts to Buy for Your Favourite History Lover This Christmas


 With less than a month until Christmas, we should probably start thinking about gifts if we haven't already. I like to try and shop from small, independent stores around this time of year rather than from big companies.

Chances are you might have someone in your life that is a complete and utter history buff so why not get them a gift related to their favourite topic. Here are a few ideas of Gifts to Buy for Your Favourite History Buff This Christmas!


My Life is in Ruins T-shirt from What is History £25.01 I think all history buffs love a good pun so why not treat them to a punderful t-shirt...see what I did there?

Yaasss Queen Mug from Clavis & Claustra £11.00 A mug with all their favourite queens on - YAS PLEASE!

Historical Fiction Bookbox from Bookbarn International £9.99 This one's for the book lovers! Inside each box is a preloved historical fiction book, a sachet of tea or coffee and some biscuits. Sounds like the recipe for a cosy night in reading!

Celtic Sword from English Heritage £90.00 Surprise your favourite Celtic history lover with their very own sword!



Inside History Digital Subscription £10.00 A magazine subscription is always a good idea as it's not something that people often think of buying for themselves.

A Gift Membership to a museum - I really like the Vagina Museum's gift membership (£50.00) as it comes with loads of perks such as 10% off in the gift shop and invites to special events.

National Trust Gift Memebership £72.00 This will allow your loved one free entry into over 500 National Trust sites and they will also receive a regular National Trust magazine!

What is History Now From Bookshop.org £18.60 This book is one I'm so keen to read as are many history lovers. It looks at how we interpret history in the modern day - a must read for all historians!

The World Aflame by Dan Jones & Marina Amaral from Bookshop.org £9.29 This book looks at both the First and Second World Wars alongside some incredible colourised images, bringing history to life. 

A Victorian Peepshow from Brunel's SS Great Britain online shop £15  This one's for the Victorian enthusiasts! Peep shows were popular souvenirs in the Victorian period. They resemble miniature stage sets and expand to create an illusion of depth. I'm sure any history lover would be thrilled to receive this Victorian inspired gift!

Victoria Playing Cards from Brunel's SS Great Britain online shop £5 Playing cards with different paintings and portraits of Queen Victoria on? The historian's dream!
