Gift Artfully

The holidays are a time for gathering together—and gifting. Find an artfully curated selection of books, jewelry, puzzles, and more at the BAMPFA Store. Here are some of our favorite finds for everyone on your list, from kids to creatives.

For the Local

Shop local with these uniquely Bay Area products, from Wolfman New Life Quarterly and Creative Growth’s artist magazine to Rigel Stuhmiller’s illustrated calendar and Marisa Mason’s stunning metal jewelry.

For the Creative Type

Get inspired to create art like Georges Seurat or stamp a beautiful garden. Play with Josef Albers’s color theory by building puzzles or spend the day drawing with Frank Lloyd Wright’s pen set. Curl up with a great book—and read the rich, revealing stories of five women who revolutionized modern art.

For the Frugal Art Fan

Scoop up stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts for under $25, like the colorful Ekobu colander scoop or picnic box, Kiki Smith’s porcelain tray, an array of Slingshot organizers, a guide to living a more contented life, and some playful cards to test your art genius.

For the Bibliophile

If you’re looking for art and film books to delight the mind and senses, look no further than these selections. Survey Catherine Wagner’s photographic approach to cultural and natural histories and immerse yourself in Hilma af Klint’s futurist abstractions. Explore visual culture in Paul Fonoroff’s Chinese Movie Magazines: From Charlie Chaplin to Chairman Mao, 1921-1951 and take a stroll through California landscapes with the art of Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud.

For the BAMPFA Fan

Come here often? Gift original catalogs from exhibitions you love, like Harvey Quaytman: Against the Static, or artist-commissioned editions, like Alicia McCarthy and Ruby Neri’s MATRIX 40th Anniversary commemorative poster. Stay hydrated on the go with our custom S’well water bottle. And, pick up BAMPFA memberships for a gift that keeps giving all year long.

For the Colorist

Gift the rainbow with these chromatic goods, including Graf Lantz’s felt trivets, eye-catching wire mesh bowls, colorful chopsticks, or Alex Katz’s floral tea towel. Add a pop of color to any outfit with Encanto Jewels’s necklace or brighten someone’s day with Lulalu’s flashlight keychains.
