One of our personal highlights of this year has been celebrating our talented local artists through our Crafted In Liverpool competition (read more about it here!) and in light of this we thought we should share our top 5 gift ideas for your artistic friends and family that can all be bought from local, independent businesses!

Give the gift of art with these gorgeous Sefton Park & Liver Building Christmas baubles! Pay a visit to dot-art quick to make sure you don’t miss out! They also offer a fantastic range of courses to help the budding artist in your life refine their talents and of course a wide range of affordable and locally produced artworks!

For the artistic fashionista, head to The Vintage Corner and revel in their selection of hand-picked unique vintage finds!

Spending time cooped up with the family can be a challenge over Christmas! Give the gift of relaxation with these fantastic colouring books from Rennie’s Arts & Crafts

Each brooch is individually drawn by the local artist (@mushpeadesigns) to ensure maximum uniqueness! Your definitely going to have people asking where you got this gem, tell from Florence & Fox in Waterloo!

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, yet its undeniable the tattooing is indeed an art form! Check out the artists at Design 4 Life or get your own art tattooed! Gift vouchers are also available in store for a truly unique gift!
