Hint Tip: Damien Hirst

Nothing says yuletide cheer like loads and loads of new things, as Damien Hirst knows well. Never one to miss a commercial holiday, he's joining the Christmas fray, releasing an exclusive holiday selection for Other Criteria, his twin London boutiques, selling limited editions, rare artists' books and other arty odds and ends. It's not the Neiman Marcus holiday catalog of yore (no helicopters or taxidermied endangered species), but there's plenty to wet the erudite and refined palate—and with some reasonable prices (Phillip Allen tees start at 30 quid).

Our picks: Hirst's silkscreened heart with butterflies (also doubles as an early Valentine), his Pharmacy Wallpaper (enough said) and Johannes Albers' B-Side Joy Division. Of course, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a splurge. Ours would be Hirst's Hallucinatory Head, a psychedelic plastic skull that’s not quite the diamond-studded version, but enough to tide us over till next year.
