One of our favourite projects behind-the-scenes each year is putting together our annual QAGOMA Store Gift Guide. We’re very proud of our store curators, who pull together a wonderful, interesting and thoughtful array of books, merchandise and gifts throughout our stores all year-round.
We feel like Christmas is the perfect way to celebrate their work, which has something for everyone! Come in and see us for recommendations, or flick through our full gift guide for some ideas.
