I’m almost done buying all the presents for the kids. Every year I tell myself that this year I’ll have all the gifts ready and wrapped before December 1st. However, I never make it in time. I dislike shopping in the city when it’s full of people – lets face it, I hate standing in line – therefore I buy most of the gifts online. I love exploring new webshops and finding new things for the whole family. This time I’ve been looking at things for a tween girl. Some of the things ended up in this gift guide.
I hope some of the things in this guide will inspire you and your girl this Christmas.
1. Pink Elephant
2. Bergen No 3 cushion
3. Roaslie chair grey
4. Gaston wall mounted desk grey
5. Laurette round bed drak grey
6. Les Gambettes rosy shelf jade green
7. Hello Pillow case white

The kids love to pick out presents for my husband and I. They get super excited every time, and they sure know which presents they bought for us – even years later. This year I’ve collected a few things that I know my husband would love. I’ll either go into the city with the kids, or enjoy a quiet afternoon at home with them while shopping for the perfect gift online.
My man loves cooking and baking bread. Therefore, most of the gifts this year are culinary related. So far these items have made the list.

Today, I’ve got some Christmas inspiration for you. I’m getting my dose of Christmas right now, but more about that in a later post – if you’re curious, check out Instagram. Today, I’m just going to leave you with some wonderful Christmas ideas. As you can see, I’m very much a black/white, minimalistic Christmas freak. I love a simple Christmas decor, containing snow and black, grey, glitter and a bit of green.

While I’m busy buying gifts for the whole family and friends, I decided to pick out a few things from my own wishlist to show you.
On my wishlist this year:
Check out my Pinterest board right here for more inspiration and to see my ongoing wishlist. I update it from time to time during the year, and then I pick out some of the gifts I’ve collected and email the links to friends and family. Somehow, they are not as impressed by the whole Pinterest thing as me 😉 Hopefully, one day they’ll see how practical it really is.
Are you ready for the first Sunday of Advent yet? Have you made your Advent wreath? If not, hurry up and get your Kubus 4 candle holder and let’s get started. I’ve selected a few examples of how to decorate your ByLassen candle holder.
I’ll show you a few tips on what to use this year. So don’t worry, you’ll make in time to sit back and enjoy the day with your family too. Check out what I did with my own Kubus 4 for Advent here on Instagram.

My boy is growing up fast. A few months back, an older boy we know said that he could now see that my boy was getting older. It was just after my boy had turned six years old, and he started asking for more Lego among other things. Shopping for his Christmas gifts this year only made me more aware of the fact that my boy is more attuned to what is out there. He’s more specific about what he wants to add to his wishlist.
This year it’s all about Star Wars. Apart from the Lego Star Wars things, which I’ve written a post about right here, I’ve got a few other things in mind for him this Christmas.
I’ve already got the cool Empire Strikes Back poster from the Etsy shop Handz. If my boy likes it, as much as I do, I’m thinking about getting the other two as well. I’m waiting for a frame for the poster, but I’ll show you as soon as I get it framed. Keep an eye out for it on Instagram.
1. Star Wars Stormtrooper mask
2. Darth Vader bath wrap
3. Star Wars poster Empire Strikes Back by Handz
4. Darth Vader mask
5. Master Yoda
