Gift guide 2017



Yippi yey, we’re a month away from Christmas! I can’t wait for the days off, the snow, cocoa in bed, evenings by the fire (unfortunately we don’t have a fireplace anymore, but friends of us do), reading something soothing (after many years when December meant exams, I like unwinding with Agatha Christie or British crime), walking the bear, making cookies and exchanging gifts. I put together a little list with what would make me happy to give and receive, if only the word budget hadn’t been invented and money was no issue.

I love me a piece of pottery and this fancy plate by Anette Krogstad is right up my alley. You can purchase it at Norway design.

I have a watch I hardly ever wear and it’s not because it’s not pretty, it’s just that I’m not much of a jewelry person. But this Arne Jacobsen one is stunning, I’m sure I’d wear it every day! You can find it at Illums Bolighus.

If you’re into cosy (and if you live in Scandinavia you have to be), a blanket from Røros tweed might be a good idea. This one is designed by Åsmund Bold and besides from being gorgeous, it’s also soft to the touch.

For the collectors, this timeless glass vase will do the trick. It’s called Joe Colombo and is produced by Lyngby Porselen. Call me retro, but I’m soft for green. 😉

I myself don’t particularly enjoy gifting toys to the small ones, since the ones I like seldom are those they themselves play with and they just end up in a pile somewhere. So I usually find a cute dress or a sweater. Or this super sweet panda towel from Liewood!

For the man in your life, this sweater from Fillipa K is radiating Scandinavian elegance and will keep him warm and comfy.

Don’t mind if I do- if there’s one thing I’ve been drooling over lately, then it’s this Acne jacket! The price is at least 3 times what I’d be comfortable spending on it, but hey, a girl can dream, right?!

Last, but not least, I’ve ordered myself a EAM bag for easier logistics next year. Vuong finally opened a shop in Oslo- Markveien 28- and if you haven’t visited, you should!

xxx, Alina
