Santa's Lap: Abbey Road

Every day until Christmas we will be pointing you in the direction of a London Christmas gift that (with a bit of luck) you won’t already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we’ll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings…

It's 80 years since London's famous recording studio laid down its first track, and Abbey Road has brought out a range of merchandise to mark the anniversary. You can get t-shirts, hoodies or a tote bag with a specially designed logo, or you can go for more general imagery of mixing desks, mics and guitars on a range of notebooks, mugs, gadget cases and t-shirts. Though we're not quite sure why their iPhone case is being touted as a "men's accessory".

If you're looking for the famous Beatles Abbey Road shot, there's plenty of stuff out there too. We like the idea of the 1,000 piece jigsaw (keep your Uncle quiet on Boxing Day).

Abbey Road merchandise is available from their online shop, items priced between £5-£30.

More Londony Christmas gift ideas are compiled here.
