Gifts for History Buffs

Shopping for the history buff in your life?

It might seem daunting with the whole world (and the world’s history) at your fingertips, but with a little time and observation you’re sure to find the perfect gift for your buddy. Let’s brainstorm:

History is by definition very broad, so try recalling notable characters that inspired your friend more than others.

Gifting an action figure of a history buff’s favorite idol is a touching gesture that they’ll love to adorn their desk. Still need some examples?

You can’t go wrong with the Einstein Action Figure by Today is Art Day,  a  real-life superhero that everyone admires.

At five inches tall, this action figure features Einstein’s signature mustache and wild hair, and includes a removable pipe and violin. It’s sure to make any history aficionado proud.

If your friend is an enthusiast of the history of art, then you’ve hit the jackpot. Our store celebrates art history and its famous figures in numerous, diverse ways.

Still thinking about those action figures? Today is Art Day has a collection just for art history, including the likes of Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, and Leonardo da Vinci. Each one comes with their own personal accessories, a tiny work of art, and a display easel.

Or, if you’re on the hunt for a gift as creative as the person, take a look at our unique art gifts—like Flatyz candles.

Instead of celebrating one person you can commemorate a whole art movement with special candles like ‘Water Lillies’, a quintessential Impressionist painting by everyone’s first love, Monet. Flatyz candles are hand-painted by artisans onto a flattened slab of wax with two wicks, so the candle will burn evenly for three to four hours. It’s truly a sight to see Monet’s masterpiece come alive and melt away.

Whether it’s reading about the Renaissance, or watching a documentary about Frida Kahlo, a history buff likes to be cozy while doing it.

Accessorize their me-time with unique art history gear, like the Brief History of Art Mug by Unemployed Philosophers Guild. Featuring the evolution of Western art over the past thousand years, this mug will test their history skills with each drink! (Not only that, it’s pretty nifty to have a little art gallery wrapped around one mug.)

No matter the season, a pair of comfy socks is another must-have for an indulgent night-in.

If your friend has a bit of a whimsical side, check out The Artists Socks Gift Set by Chattyfeet. It includes four socks inspired by famous artists, including Andy Sock-Hole, Feetasso, Frida Callus, and Vincent Van Toe. With this fun set your friend can change their art style to suit their mood!

Hooray, the hard part is over! Now that you’ve chosen a stellar gift for your history buff, don’t forget to include a complimentary gift note at checkout.
