SIX WINNING CHRISTMAS PRESSIES FROM WE BUILT THIS CITY

Who built this city? London’s artists, designers and creatives did – on a musically nutritious diet of rock ‘n’ roll, apparently. And now you can shop them all under one roof at We Built This City, our new pop up gift shop putting the cool in Cool Britannia with their range of arty London souvenirs.

Here’s six gifts that every Londoner, or in fact anyone, will love. It’s time to show your Christmas list who’s boss.

AMY WINEHOUSE PRINT

Our girl’s crowning glory is as distinctive as her voice and a perfect present for any Winehouse fan. Sketched and screen printed in England by design duo, Bold & Noble (£38) – this is pop art for the 21st century.
