We all know at least one person who can’t get enough of the English capital, so when it’s time for gift-shopping, London themed gifts are your answer.
In my case, one of my best friends is completely obsessed with this city, and she was actually the inspiration for creating this list. Even though it’s been a while since my last trip to London, she keeps reminding me how incredible it is, so I might have to get some of these gifts for myself…

LONDON/BRITISH THEMED GIFT BASKET
Let’s be honest – food gift baskets are the best! I always feel like a kid in a candy store when I open them, so I bet any London lover would be thrilled to get a themed one. Luckily, there are companies like the British Hamper, which provides worldwide delivery and dozens of options, including afternoon tea baskets, Christmas baskets, and even gluten-free baskets.
You can also find a few British-themed subscription boxes (you can make a one-time purchase) like LondonPopbox, which includes a collection of souvenirs and gifts from London brands.

For those who love to read fiction books set in their favorite destination (like me), there are dozens of epic novels out there. A few great books for London lovers are ‘Notting Hill in the Snow,’ ‘The Last Bookshop in London,’ ‘The London Eye Mystery,’ and ‘Goodnight from London,’ but you can check out other novels on Amazon.

A simple way to add a unique touch to any living space while showing some love for your favorite destination, themed wall art is a fantastic gift idea. From quotes about London to illustrated prints to maps, there are so many options. Check out the London maps, paintings, and posters you can find on Etsy.
If you’re looking for London themed presents for someone who likes to cook or bake, this is it. There aren’t that many cookbooks dedicated specifically to London, but you can find some treasures like ‘The Borough Market Cookbook,’ ‘The London Cookbook,’ and ‘Ottolenghi: The Cookbook.’
Because there’s nothing like marking a trip to England on a London calendar…
You can’t go wrong with a travel-inspired t-shirt for a t-shirt and jeans type of person (like me). I love the variety of designs you can find on Etsy for both men and women, including this map t-shirt and this London skyline t-shirt.
I must admit that I’m a fan of the crazy colorful socks trend. Even if it’s just for hanging out at home, I love wearing some ‘out of the box’ socks. Check out these super adorable ones for women and men on Amazon.
TELEPHONE BOOTH BOOKENDS
One of my most favorite childhood memories is putting together a 1000-piece puzzle of Piccadilly Circus with my family, so you can understand why a London-themed puzzle has to be on this list. I wish I could find you the same one I had at home, but fortunately, there are plenty of other options on Amazon.
Whether you’re looking for London related gifts for kids or Lego fanatic adults, you can find some amazing London-themed Lego sets, including London’s skyline, Trafalgar Square, and even an iconic red bus.

It’s just so damn cute and can also be a nice little desk decoration, so why not?
ADULT COLORING BOOK
Along with many other people, I’ve become a fan of adult coloring books. They’re seriously therapeutic and can be a fantastic gift for artists or any other person who has creative hobbies. Check out the ones you can find on Amazon, and don’t forget to add a set of coloring pencils (I use this one and I LOVE it).
PAINT BY NUMBERS KITS
Another wonderful gift for artistic people is a paint by numbers kit, which includes a blank painting with numbered little patches, matching numbered acrylic paint, and brushes. You’ll find plenty of kits on Amazon, including London-themed ones.
Probably one of the best London themed Christmas gifts, a cozy blanket is perfect for snuggling during the winter months.
It’s not always easy to find a themed case for every type of phone, but there are definitely enough options on Etsy.
Who doesn’t also love cheesy little souvenirs like keychains? I had bought a bunch in London and used them for years until the color started to peel off, so I wouldn’t say no to a new set, and I know I’m not the only one.
Quirky yet so British, a London-themed egg cup is an adorable gift.
