I’ll focus on the whole family and select things that I either have or would buy myself. I hope you like this little series. First off is of course mom. It’s important to get her a cool gift for Christmas, right?

Favourite Finds – Christmas Edition

 

Oh, how I simply love December. I love the decoration, buying gifts and the gift wrapping – well, I actually think I love that most of all. This year, I’m super busy, but I try to sneak in a bit of Christmas spirit here and there. Unfortunately, our trip to Hamburg didn’t bring out the Christmas spirit this year – not like it used to anyway. The Christmas markets were closed and were to open a few days after we left the city. Bad planning – that’s all I can say. So instead, I’ve found some really cute Christmas decorations – some I’ve already got, and some I would love to add to our home.

Today we celebrate the first day of advent, and if you’re not ready yet, might I suggest these cute candles from Södahl. This year I added the cool grey and white trees to my rather big selection of trees. I don’t know what it is about them, I just love the winter wonderland feeling about Christmas decorations. I simply love the x-mas led lamp – and would be so thrilled to add it to my Christmas collection. On a smaller scale, the black Christmas decoration would be in our living room, or on the Christmas tree. Last but not least, my absolute favorite new trend when it comes to Christmas decor. Don’t you just love Christmas balls in all shapes and sizes? Just do a quick search online and you’ll find the most amazing ones.

Christmas Wishlist – Teen Girl

This is the first post – Christmas Wishlist – Teen Girl –  in a series of posts about Christmas presents. Over the coming weeks I’ll show you different ideas of what to put under the Christmas tree. I plan to give you ideas of what to buy for the whole family.

I’ll kick this one off by giving you some ideas of what to buy for your teen girl. My soon to be 12 year-old girl has a long wishlist this year. It’s a good mix of clothes, music players, gadgets, books and beauty products. Just right for a girl her age. It’s fun to watch her transformation. I’ll try and collect some of her wishes here.

Advent – Still not ready – Get inspired here

Are you ready for advent? In one week we’ll light the first candle and celebrate the first advent. I haven’t created this year’s advent wreath, but hopefully, I’ll get it done this weekend. I’ve been using one of my Kubus candleholder for the past couple of years, but I’m actually considering going more ‘natural’ this year. I’m very inspired by some of the pictures below. However, I also love using my son’s Schleich animals, to make it more playful.

12 Christmas Calendars to pick from

One of the things I love about Christmas is picking out a Christmas Calendar for each of my kids. If I’m lucky, I’ll get one myself. I’ve picked out 12 different calendars this year – I wouldn’t mind getting one of them.

I’m the kind of person who would rather have a tiny piece of good chocolate than a bag of candy. The same goes for coffee – I don’t drink coffee every day at all, but when I do drink it (mostly on the weekends, I want something special. I try to teach my kids this as well. Therefore, my daughter picked a liquorice calendar two years in a row a few years back. With the little guy, it’s a bit more tricky. But like my daughter, I’m sure he’ll come around eventually. Though, she’s always been curious about different food.

This year, I’ve picked out a little bit of everything for inspiration. Underneath you’ll find dark chocolate, cosmetics, caramels, wine gums, coffee and more. I hope you find one to make those December days just a bit more cozy.

Daily countdown in December

The past 3 years we’ve had a candle from Normann Copenhagen to help us count down the days till Christmas. However, I’ve bought another candle holder for our candle this year.

First of all, I wanted a thinner candle. It was hard for us to burn the bigger candle down each day, so a thinner version is on trial this year. In mid October a candle holder from finnsdottir arrived at my door. I’d been trying to decide which one to pick for a few weeks, and I finally decided on the one with the tiny Bambi.

I’ve added a few new trees from Søstrene Grene to the decoration and I’m quite happy with the result. I’ll add a picture on Instagram, when reach the end of November. But until then, you can check out the Christmas campaign from Søstrene Grene – I bought the green and white trees. If you want even more Christmas inspiration, you should check out my board on Pinterest. But I’ll make sure to collect some of my favourite Christmas ideas in another post when we hit the end of November.
