Dear Santa...

I love Christmas, and ever since I moved to London 8 years ago, it has been extra special to come home to Sweden, eat Swedish cuisine and spend a traditional Christmas with the family. It has been 2 years since I have had this pleasure as me and Garth celebrated Christmas in Zimbabwe last year.

On Christmas Eve, we sat in a Jeep by a lake in Gweru, in the middle of a thunder storm and ate grilled steak and drank champagne. This wasn't bad, but this year our celebration will be 100% traditional. We will decorate, make fudge and buy a lot of nice gifts. Here is what's on my list this year and also a few suggestions for nice things to give away to your loved ones;



Alessi - Mgvass

Alessi - Mgvass

I have been very nice this year and I therefore thing that I deserve this wonderful tray by Alessi. Garth can serve tea in bed and avoid staining the sheets. The tray can also grace the table with a couple of tea lights and Christmas sweets. Very stylish and a great advantage are the convenient handles which minimize the risk of spilling.

Thomas Sabo - Angel Wings

Sisters and daughters may not always be angels, but I would still recommend these neat earrings in the shape of angel wings in silver, from Thomas Sabo. A Christmas gift that isn't too pricey, but will still be highly appreciated and suitable for both everyday and parties.

Georg Jensen - HK Clock w. alarm function, Steel, White 10 cm

It is painful enough to get up in the mornings, seeing my old, noisy lime green thing of an alarm. But waking up to this stylish Henning Koppel alarm clock would make my mornings a lot easier. Even a disturbing thing as an alarm clock can be loved, if it is as gorgeous as this one.

Kosta Bodas - Make Up Mini Lipstick

Kosta Boda - Make Up Mini Lipstick

The unreasonably popular glass sculptures from the Make Up range from Kosta Boda is the perfect gift for your girlfriend/big sister. They are as beautiful in the bathroom cabinet, as on the make up table or in your book shelf. And the best of all is that you don't have to worry about which shade is fitting her skin tone the best.

Design House Stockholm - Step Ladder

Design House Stockholm - Step Ladder

I am so sick of dragging around heavy chairs in the kitchen to reach the top shelf, so this year I will wish for the ladder. For us that are a bit more petite, a stool or ladder is a thing that will come in handy. I would love to have it in white! When you don't use it, it can be leaning towards a wall and you have room to hang your kitchen towels on the steps.
