Christmas is my absolute favourite season of the year – I just love to spend cozy evenings in front of the fire, to light a million candles, to drink a yummy mulled wine or hot chocolate and eating all the cookies.
but what I love most about Christmas is the presents – not to receive them but to give them! there is nothing more special than surprising your loved ones with a little something they didn’t expect or wished for a long time.
in my opinion, there is nothing better than to give someone time: so I find theatre tickets, a concert or even a voucher for a nice dinner is a very lovely gift and I’d 100% appreciate this the most. but sometimes you just want to give them something a bit more special and that’s where Merci Maman is THE perfect place to shop for this kind of present!
Merci Maman made me the most gorgeous personalized necklace. they hand-engrave all of their pieces and this makes it so cute and personal! for my necklace I chose the engravement: Luna 14.04.2019 – the name and date of birth of my daughter.
but you could also engrave your other half and your initials and your anniversary, your dogs name, your parents or siblings names – there’s no limit (actually there is a limit of letters… but you could just order more pieces anyway :D) . I know it’s a little late but you’ll get 20% off your order until tomorrow (02.12.2019 11.59pm) – so go check them out and get your loved ones the perfect present. oh and also: the delivery was SOOOO fast – I literally got my necklace after 2 days!
another one of my faves this year is something for our little ones. in the online shop from Hotschgufe you’ll find everything a kid could ever wish for! she sells the cutest wooden toys, nightlights, kids dinner sets, cuddle dolls and so much more > and EVERYTHING is personalized.
we’ve got this wonderful train toy for Luna and there’s not only her name and date of birth; her weight, height and time of birth are also written on the train and I think this is such a thoughtful cute present. it’s a perfect toy for the little ones and a meaningful and emotional memory for the parents – absolutely lovely.
Priska, the founder of Hotschgufe, has three gorgeous kids and runs this business casually while raising them: such a mum boss! the quality of her personalization is just amazing and she did it SO fast. I really recommend this shop from the heart because I know and follow her for a while and find it truly inspiring to see all the creative things she does. go and check out her shop and Instagram to see what I mean.
if you’re looking for something a little bit on the cheaper side but nonetheless beautiful: the Kneippgift packages are the perfect choice for you. they’ve got a lovely packaging and the products are definitely my all-time faves! I’ve used Kneipp bath products for longer than I can remember and truly love them – there are so many benefits:
The Kneipp cream bath “Wohlfühlzeit” with natural essential oils of sweet orange and star anise and high-quality macadamia milk extract protects the skin from drying out and conjures up a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. the cozy scent and the long-lasting creamy foam make this bath a feel-good experience for body and soul. After the relaxing bath, you perfectly complement your feel-good ritual with the Kneipp Body Milk. The rich care with macadamia milk extract provides the skin with long-lasting moisture and regenerates the skin barrier. The natural care effect is rounded off by cell-protecting vitamin E, rich shea butter and skin-soothing panthenol.
or if you’re loved one doesn’t like to take a bath > Kneipp has also a very beautiful gift set with a candle and a room perfume with sandalwood. the wooden scent is so warming and lovely and I think this gift set is such a save number: everyone will love this.
ALSO: Kneipp is such an affordable brand and really environmentally aware. I love that all of their products are sustainably and they even have partnerships with for example WWF. all in all I’m really a fan of Kneipp ever since I can remember and definitely would recommend their products to everyone!
so this is it from my gift guide this year: I hope you like it and find something to give to your family, friends or your special ones.
Merry Christmas everybody!
