All I want for Christmas is a small series of shopping posts that will be posted once in a while until Christmas, hopefully one each week. The title refers to one of my favorite Christmas songs and lovesongs all together: All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey. I can listen to that song on repeat AND off-season all year, to me it is so simple, so beautiful, so powerful and that’s why it works.
Now the reason why I wanted to name this small series of posts All I want for Christmas is because it reminds me of the most important things about Christmas: family, friends and giving. And here are a few items, that I adore and would love to give to my family and friends.
If you are as excited by these items as I, please find links below:
(By the way, this is not an advertisement or a payed partnership, just my own opinion, because I really do love these brands 😉 )
To my sister-in-law, a woman, who knows and adores a beautifully set table, I would give Georg Jensen Pyramid cutlery in stainless steal (comes in silver as well, if you prefer 🙂 ). Her way of decorating the Christmas dinner table in classical Christmas colors, with a femine twist, will match perfectly with this Art Deco-style cutlery. This cutlery is so elegantly crafted and rests easily in your hand. We have this cutlery and use it everyday, and I am so pleased with the fact that the Georg Jensen Pyramid cutlery is beautiful to look at, comfortable in your hands and good to eat with. Plus it comes in the sweetest mini size for the small children as well.
To my husband I would give a set of eight black oak Wishbone Chairs by Hans J. Wegner, sold by Carl Hansen to complete the dining table. We have talked about buying these for some time now, the trouble being that we already have original Eames chairs and are very reluctant to part with them for the moment. Maybe I can find use for them elsewhere, hmm? The Wishbone Chair is so beautiful with its’ natural cord and at this time of the year I would put a lambskin in a couple of the chairs, to make them look and feel extra extra ‘hyggelige’/cosy 😉
A Mommy Robe for my mom, and my grandmother. Two of the most important women in my life. But honestly I would give a Mommy Robe to every mother I know: A Mommy Robe to every woman and girlfriend with children that I have ever met. The comforting Mommy Robe from Konges Sløjd is comfortable in the softest muslin with the pretty Marquis design, practical when nursing your baby and warm when you have to get up in the middle of the night. But first and foremost this robe from Konges Sløjd is a genius celebration of motherhood at all ages of life, something that comes very close to my heart.
At Christmas we will be going to a lot of parties. And I am always in search of a nice present for the hostess. I would, if I could, have a Scented Candle from Skandinavisk in each room of our house. Now Skandinavisk is a little bit of luxury, something that will just make you happy when smelling the familiar scent of Træ, Wood. I know my friends would be so happy to receive a gift from the heart. Plus there’s an extra bonus here, if you, like me, have a husband who’s not so keen on scented candles; my husband actually likes the scents from Skandinavisk just as much as I do.
Two caramel colored cushions for my daugthers two great-grandmothers – I believe that these cushions will get a stately seat in the good chair in each great-grandmothers living room. A life of caring for the family deserves a nice place to sit and a good cup of coffee and a bisquit. Bungalow Denmark is a quite exciting brand and it will be interesting to follow them over the next couple of years. I just love this warm caramel color (and deep down I hope my pillow collection in the sofa will grow fast with these lovely velvet ones, because) personally, I think I would choose one of each pillow in their catalogue.
