Knowing there is little time left, we’ve decided to select 5 of the best gift ideas, which won’t seem as last minute buys and which are perfect for anyone who loves art or is creative.
1 | Ebook
Ebooks are a great gift ideas, especially the ones that are truly useful. That’s why we suggest to check out the list of ebooks at Zandegù.

2 | Creative online courses and workshops
Zandegù is a studio, based in Turin, it both publishes ebooks and offers in class workshops or online courses.
The workshops are held in the evenings or on the weekends by professionals of specific sectors. Zandegù has also started a collaboration with Comò Lab, a creative studio based in Reggio Emilia, giving you the possibility to follow the same workshops in this city.
If neither of theses two cities is close to you, check out their online courses. Illustration, communication, creative writing and loads more!
A perfect last minute gift idea which is unusual and original.
3 | Subscriptions to Art Magazines
Mostly overlooked, a subscription to an art magazine can actually be a great last minute gift idea.
Though many of us might say “oh i’d love to sign up”, it rarely happens as we might already have other subscriptions or perhaps because we like to buy different magazines from week to week. Notwithstanding, an art magazine subscription as a present is always a lovely idea. And it’s simple and easy! Just find the website of the magazine and it’s done.
If none come to mind, here are some ideas:
4 | Mystery Box
We’ve already mentioned them in creative gift ideas , and since they’re great (and you might have missed the article) we’ll mention them again. Mystery Box subscriptions, like Hoppípolla, Re-Belle Box and Art Bag can be a great idea as a last minute present.
They’re wonderful because yes, you have gifted a subscription, but the receiver will get so much more! Every month they will receive a box with delightful and unexpected surprises inside.
5 | Membership cards
If you prefer something more adventurous, we suggest to check your cities’ cultural membership cards. In Bologna we have the Culture Card Membership which offers discounts to exhibitions amongst other perks.
The membership is annual and can include: cinemas, theaters, museums, concerts and festivals. Since what it offers it’s so varied it can be great for anyone.
Take a look at your own city and see what memberships it has to offer, they could be to museums or cultural centers, and they could be valid for a whole year!
