It’s only 21 days left to Christmas! As I grow older I feel more enthusiastic about this time of the year. Love the tiny lights hanging from everywhere on the street and especially the huge tree we’ve bought for home this year. Black Friday was the start of the late-year shopping marathon (I didn’t buy absolutely anything, so sad) and if you’re as bad as me when it comes to pick the perfect present for your people, I hope you find this Christmas gift guide as enlightening as I expect.

1 | Rituals ‘Black Oudh’ scented candle. Lighting a candle and wearing the comfiest homewear sounds like heaven to any working girl, I’d guess. It means you’re finally back home and you’re taking some time for yourself. Recently I discovered the new Rituals candles and I like this particular scent  because of the elegant wooden tint, it’s addictive!

2 | Dotted iPhone case. iPhone is the king of the cases world, no one can doubt it. The shelves are filled with thousands of designs for iPhone while there’s only a few cool cases for the Galaxy (I used to have a S4) et al. Now that I’m a proud owner of an Apple toy I can spend hours browsing Society6 for the perfect design. The problem is there are too many beautiful prints such as this dotted one… Paradox. Ha!

3 | Daniel Wellington watch. A good watch is one of the best presents I can think of. It’s that kind of things that you rarely invest in for yourself (unless we’re talking about low cost brands, an everyday accessory) but rather buy it for your loved ones. My mum and sister let me know too clearly that they’d love to find a Daniel Wellington under the Christmas tree…

4 | Mus&Bombon robe. Relating to the #1 in this list, this could be the perfect match to a scented candle. I’m a big fan of homewear and all I see in this robe is relax and Bloglovin’.

5 | ‘Parament’ stoneware tumbler. I’m 100% sure that the day I move to my own apartment I’ll buy a couple of these. Aren’t they the prettiest houseware you’ve ever seen? Stoneware items are a good gift for the ones that love handcraft.

6 | Lua Nord wooden hand. I’ve always wanted a wooden hand so this is a call for my family and friends. Nothing more to add but say that this is a Pinterest classic must-have!
