HAPPY GIVING: THE ALLUDE XMAS GUIDE
They are supposed to really exist – these enviably well-planned people who already have all their Christmas presents by the end of November. You are not one of them? Don’t panic! As always, homemade things, little gestures of love, shared adventures and quality time are the best gifts anyway! For all last-minute shoppers who still want to give their loved ones a physical gift, we have collected a few special ideas. Some can be wonderfully combined with activities – like a cookbook for your next dinner date. Other gifts have personal (love) messages (“Tu es le soleil de mon coeur”) and for aesthetic pragmatists there are beautiful and useful things that make everyday life a bit easier.
And in case you are really one of the first mentioned organizing pros – chapeau! Now you can lean back, relax and enjoy the Advent season to the max and, if you like, simply treat yourself – for example with a cosy blanket to join you on the couch!
Each ceramic piece of the Marrakech-based label is hand-painted and therefore unique. The vase does not only come with a very special message, but also brings a bit of summer into your home.
With this luxurious game set for chess, checkers and dominoes, Christmas Eve could be extended by a few extra matches. Handcrafted in Italy from high-quality calfskin, the box is also impressive after the game on any coffee table.
The perfect gift for all fans of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s little prince. The notebook with brown leather cover comes with lined pages with plenty of room for plans, to-do lists and dreams. Make it a very special gift with a personal note in it.
Whether in the hotel room when you are travelling, on the beach, or at the next garden party – with the portable and handy loudspeaker you can listen to your favourite music practically everywhere. Just hang it up and enjoy the crystal clear sound! The rose-gold aluminium case turns the speaker into a beautiful eye-catcher.
The limited gift set includes three room sprays – Cythera, Istros and Olous. Each of the distinctive fragrances is designed to stimulate the senses, soothe the spirit and lift the mood. They are ideal to calm the mind when at home, or to banish bad vibrations in the office.
Stylish, elegant and so incredibly fluffy! This is how the camel-coloured plaid made of the finest cashmere virgin wool mix comes across. The warming blanket is the perfect couch companion for relaxing hours and a wonderful gift for more cuddles.
Food brings happiness! Especially if the dishes are so balanced with regional, seasonal and purely natural ingredients, as in these almost 70 vegetarian recipes. They are photographed in such an atmospheric way that the book could almost pass as a coffee table book. All that is missing is the date for a joint cooking evening!
Because we CARE! The four washing products and two conditioners made from high-quality natural ingredients and essential oils, as well as a cashmere comb and the valuable Cashmere ABC make up the perfect starter package for the right care of cuddly soft favourites! It nourishes, cleans and ensures that the pleasure of cashmere lovers lasts for a long time.
Goodbye long ironing! This hand steamer is as beautiful as it is useful. Simple and efficient, everything from delicate silk to durable linen can be steamed smoothly and crease-free. A practical everyday helper that saves time – which can then be used directly for some quality time together.
