Lucky-approved gifts for the New Years'
Lucky, arty and not only finds for gifting all year around..
The new year has came so the new decade..
And because on this site we love gifts all year and only during the period of Christmas and other holidays ~for those we have special occasions and treats~ we have prepared some gift suggestions for all the days of the year...
Whenever you choose to make your buys online this year of with a walk into the stores, in both cases the same useful giudances are "on" for a responsible consumption:
We buy an object that creates an emotional bond.
We buy products that last.
We buy products -objects that derive from edible or renewed sources that their composition allows the multiple usage or at the worse case scenario, the recycle.

To the eshop of Benaki Museum we can find the diary that was designed especially for the exhibition "Christian Zervos & Cahiers d'Art". With photographs of Emil Seraf it represents a detail from a cycladic idol of the First Cycladic II Era from the series of photographs for the book of Christian Zervos, "L'Art en Grèce des temps préhistoriques au début du XVIIIe siècle" (1934).
Like this marinier striped tshirt from Jean Paul Gaultier...
