Christmas Shopping At London Transport Museum 2014
London Transport Museum shop celebrates the capital's transport system and the way this has shaped the city's cultural profile. If you've ever visited the museum, we bet you spent a good amount of time browsing the huge range of transport-themed objects on sale, most of which are exclusive to the museum. That's exactly what we've been doing — and now, we're happy to present you with some gift ideas for this year's Christmas stockings.
The museum shop has fashion accessories aplenty: we love the simple and elegant design of the Tatty Devine Bus destination brooches, available in six different destinations: Covent Garden, Shoreditch, Camden Town, Victoria, Hackney Wick and Not In Service. Fashionistas will recognise the quality of the Wallace Sewell scarf made from lamb's wool, which has been commissioned and designed exclusively for the museum. They'l also appreciate the many patterns of the ladies' leather and moquette wallet. There's something for pet owners as well: the museum has hand-crafted, waterproof dog coats inspired by both the District line and the Routemaster.
Christmas also means dolling up the house. Get inspired by the Christmas tree decorations made of moquette — available in star and heart shapes — and make your sofa even cosier with the Routemaster throw. And when you're heading out of the house, do it in style with a limited edition Oyster card holder.
Looking for a present for the little ones? They will love the animal slippers made with organic wool and designed by Sonia Spencer: available in the guise of a cockerel, fox, pig and dog. Young animal lovers will also adore the knitted sausage dog, bearing the colours of the tube lines. For the traditional toy touch, there's an extensive range of wooden tube trains: each one represents a different line and comes with two carriages.
The museum is also offering a wide variety of art gifts, including vintage tube posters and limited edition prints and maps. A few days ago we suggested you get your hands on the London Underground labyrinth poster.
