Give The Gift of Art This Festive Season
GIVE THE GIFT OF ART THIS FESTIVE SEASON
Festive Season gift shopping is about as easy as choosing the best eatery in Melbourne. When there are so many savvy options around, things often get left until the last minute when stress, anxiety and delirium start to hit. Before you know it, a rash, spur-of-the-minute decision is made. And it probably isn’t the best one.
So before you end up in a mountain of socks-for-everyone, have a perusal through our list of art inspired festive gifts, full of creativity, wit and practicality - sure to inspire even the most hard to please of sorts.
Ranging from $100 to $400, an Art Series gift voucher is perfect for a night or two away or an extra-special upgrade. Vouchers can be used to book online or through our reservations team, across all six of our hotels.
Give a little bit of inspiration with our quote inspired pillowcases. Taking design cues from our Studio brand this is a sweet way for anyone to inject a little more creativity into where they rest their head.
In line with the current John Olsen: The You Beaut Country exhibition now showing at NGV, we have two limited edition John Olsen prints available. Kenya, pictured above, is inspired by Olsen's love for animals, fascinated by the long necks and gangly legs of giraffes. Paella, pictured below, draws on Olsen's love of food and the time he lived on the shores of the Mediterranean. Each print is created with archival glicée ink on archival paper.
With continual compliments from our guests about the comfort, style and functionality of our beds, splash out on that special someone and who deserves this luxurious treat, every night.
Combining the signature Masini & Chern pyjama style with one of John Olsen’s most beloved prints, this classic silhouette pyjama set is perfect for sleeping in style. Made from 100% Viscose, the long sleeved pants and top are light and silky to the touch and can be worn cross-seasonally. Designed with the artwork in mind, the set is a part of a limited edition collection produced by Masisni & Chern, exclusively for The Olsen.
