To Give And To Receive
Christmas presents are a tricky subject - I am all about giving practical things for everyday life or experiences. A good gift is not about its monetary value, but more about its thoughtfulness. Obviously giving becomes a bit easier when you know the other person well. I exchange gifts with only a small number of people because I don't think we should worry about Christmas presents as much as we do (the best gift is to be present in person), and because I rather give something that is meaningful.
If you are still looking for the perfect gift for someone, I have listed a few chic yet practical ideas which I would love to either give or receive. Hopefully you find the list below helpful.
set of six long-handled tasting spoons ASSORTED WOODS, soho 2017 croc-effect leather diary SMYTHSON, 'Red Hedy' luxury lipstick RODIN OLIO LUSSO, monogram wallet GUCCI, 'Rapello' scarf TOTÊME, hair brush MASON PEARSON, canvas lounge chair FRITZ HANSEN, créme de la mer facial cream LA MER, 'Biarritz' beach towel TOTÊME, textured-leather shoulder bag PRADA
P.S. If you are looking for something that is particularly Finnish, my all-time favorites still include anything from the 'Ultima Thule' series, Moomin mugs (guilty pleasure), or anything from Pentik or Arela, for instance their cashmere comb or sleeping mask would do the trick.
