‘Tis the season for a bit of old fashioned panic: “What do you mean, Christmas is next week already?!” or “I don’t even have half of my holiday shopping done!”
Fret not, dear art-loving souls. Here’s a quick list of arts and cultural gift ideas for the creative person on your list:

Love art? How about dance? Need coffee? Yep, that’s what we thought. We’ve got you covered with these two mugs for the sleep-deprived artists in your life.
Tickets to the Royal New Zealand Ballet
Everyone loves ballet, especially exquisitely performed ballet by world-class companies! This performance of a mixed repertoire from Royal New Zealand Ballet has a little something for everyone (including a piece from Benjamin Millipied of Black Swan!).
