Holidays in the Himalayas

Special Shopping Days

If you love the beautiful keepsakes and insightful books that fill the Rubin Shop, then spread the love this season to everyone on your holiday shopping list. For Holidays in the Himalayas, we’re partnering with the artisans of Sustainable Threads and Mingei Japan, who will display their work on-site at the shop to help you find the perfect gift. Our special shopping days will also feature free gift wrapping, a special 20% discount for Rubin members, and a complimentary gift with any purchase over $25, while supplies last.

Peruse our premier selection of handicrafts, books, toys, and home décor, inspired by the arts of the Himalayas and greater Asia, with many items unavailable elsewhere. Your holiday gifts go even further at the Rubin—all purchases support the Museum, and our fair trade items help sustain Himalayan communities.
