2017 Gift Guide: For Lovers of Scandinavian Design

Every year I have this wonderful vision of merrily strolling the fairy light festooned shopping streets, picking up gifts for my nearest and dearest,  before stopping for a mug of steaming glögg (mulled wine). The reality? Somewhat different! There's just SO MUCH TO DO! Do you feel the same? If so, you'll be happy to hear Ana Degenaar (My Scandinavian Home's wonderful elf contributor) and I, have been working away on a gift guide for Scandinavian design lovers - covering all budgets (it's stated in dollars but the items are available almost anywhere in the world) and items we feel represent the Scandinavian aesthetics. We're super proud of our picks and hope you'll get some great ideas for even the most picky of friends and family!

Under $15:  If you know someone who's looking to add a little balance and calm to their life, my book - Lagom - The Swedish Art of Living a Balanced, Happy Life - Niki Brantmark (available in English UK, English US, French and Portuguese - note they have different jackets) could be a nice little pressie!  I wrote it with all my friends and family in mind and included all the small tips and tricks I've learned from Swedes and my life here that make daily life just a little easier. The LA Times included it in their list of 'Great Stocking Filler books' this week too - so perhaps Santa will be coming down the chimney with it?! Ho ho ho!
 
I hope our 2017 Christmas Gift Guide has helped, and more importantly, gives you a little more time to enjoy those all important cosy evenings with friends sipping glögg (or espresso martinis!) with friends and family - just as December is intended!

Happy shopping!
