We'll all want to drive home to these gifts and decorations
Think London transport and delays, rising costs and the daily dreaded commute may spring to mind. With this year’s range of gifts from the London Transport Museum, however, driving home for Christmas never sounded so good.
The museum’s range for 2013 features everything from decorations to stocking fillers and gifts for the whole family. Bus, tube and taxi shaped baubles will be causing a jam on the tree, tube-map-inspired totes will send your look off the rails and there’s plenty of travel-size treats for your little elves, too.
The home ware – including plates, cups, trays, tea towels and a tiffin box – features vibrant colours, a subtle(ish) nod to tube map, which was originally created in 1908 and has evolved ever since.
We love the moquette throws, available in all your favourite seat-fabric designs, and the coloured luggage racks which offer a bright, modern yet functional touch of transport chic to the home.
Bus, tube and taxi Christmas glass baubles are £19.99 each. Stocking fillers start at £2.50. The Wallace Sewell ‘Anniversary’ Throw, pictured below, costs £225.
Coloured luggage racks start from £150.
Forget the meagre seven colours of the rainbow, there’s twelve on the London underground – perfect for adding a bright, modernly nostalgic touch of transport chic into your home.
