10 Creative Gifts for the History Buffs in Your Life

Gifts for History Buffs

Whether it's Ancient Greece, the Italian Renaissance, or the early 20th century, chances are you know a history buff with a passion for the past. If that's the case, there's no better way to show how much you care than by supporting their interests. Fortunately—if you don't know where to start—My Modern Met Store has put together a unique collection of gifts for the history buffs in your life.

Some of our favorite gifts for history buffs are ideal for those with an artistic streak. For curators and designers, the Artists Socks Gift Set offers a fantastic array of creative style. It features four pairs of artist-inspired socks, including Andy Sock-Hole, Feetasso, Frida Callus, and Vincent van Toe. With this set, they can change their style to suit their mood.

Alternatively, if you know a historian that's passionate about architecture, the Frank Lloyd Wright Paper Models allow them to recreate 14 of the artist's most famous structures, like the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in the delicate art of kirigami.

If the person you're shopping for spends significant time working at their desk, consider looking at some nifty desk accessories to spruce up their workspace. The Leonardo da Vinci Action Figure captures the essence of the renowned polymath in an adorable, five-inch-tall form. The action figure comes complete with glow-in-the-dark beard, hair, and eyebrows, as well as a removable hat. This toy even comes with 5 miniature masterpieces and a display easel to turn any desk space into an art gallery.
