A low budget is no excuse for a thoughtful gift. I found* an example for a souvenir from Vienna or a beautiful Christmasgift at the Museumsquartier, which beats just everything.
Winter in MQ (until December 23rd) is something special every Christmas season. This season the place is covered with light shows of abstract art of the 20th century and so are the mugs where you get your hot drinks. Nobody could not love those mugs, if enjoying optical and kinetic art. And they are just 2 Euros each! Isn’t that a bargain? Take one for 2,- or have all three designs and put them in a lovely storage box with a handwritten Recipe for Punsch or Mulled Wine.
Remember my enthusiastic post from the DYNAMO Exhibition (A century of light and motion in art, 1913-2013) in Paris in Spring?
It seems like small parts of the Exhibition got transported to Vienna. Wear your warm coat and have yourself a wonderful evening with friends including christmas-shopping at one place. Don’t miss this abstract magic moment.
