This summer we enjoyed a few days in Sweden in the city of Gothenburg. We love coming there and most of the time we just walk around the city and enjoy a quiet afternoon in the park. The kids love it there, and we always find some exciting new spots. I don’t know why we haven’t been inside a Lagerhaus shop before (Big mistake, huge mistake, as Julia Roberts said in Pretty Woman – without further similarities to that movie) We actually went in there just to get a bottle of water, and an hour later we came out. I could have bought much more that we actually did, and so could my daughter. I guess we know where that came from.
When I was looking for tableware for our Minecraft party for my boy, I found myself browsing through their online shop. I ended up not buying anything, but quite a few things ended in my “wannabe” basked. Here’s a look at some of the things, which may or may not end in my actual shopping basket and even make it all the way to the checkout.

A few days ago I kicked off a Christmas gift special full of different gift ideas from Etsy. Today, I want to share a few things which I found for the women in your family. Here you’ll find gifts for your mother, sister, daughter or maybe your best friend. Some of the things, I think I’ll have to get for my daughter. My mother is another story. She’s very picky, and I need to find a special gift for her. For more inspiration go to Etsy Editor’s Pick Page, where you’ll find more interesting gift ideas. What are you going to get for the women in your family this year?

I love spending time looking for things on Etsy. There are so many cool items to be found. This year I’ve decided to do a few posts about what to buy for your family members on Etsy. First up is a selection of gifts for your man. I wanted to find items which my husband can use or look at every day. Apart for the funny x-mas socks, I think he would love the cool leather goods as well as the wooden items. We’re trying to bring less into our home these months, and only buy products of a certain quality. For more inspiration go to Etsy Editor’s Pick Page, where you’ll find more interesting gift ideas.

We only buy advent presents for the kids in our home, primarily because my husband isn’t too pleased with the idea in the first place. He thinks the kids get enough presents in December already. But I love each Sunday, because I think it’s special waking up to a small present, and then play with it afterwards. I think it’s an okay compromise, and I would rather buy four bigger presents than 24 small ones for each day.
Even though, my husband isn’t into it at all, I’ve still got a long list of things I would have bought for him – had he been into it. I hope the gifts I’ve picked out will inspire you – and hopefully your man will be happy, when he opens it on a Sunday before Christmas.
Are you ready for four Sundays of advent?

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.

Monday I went shopping with my little one. We were on a mission. We wanted to get a gift for ‘farmand’. My little one was so excited about going out and buying a gift, even though he was a bit sick. Our daughter is also creating her very own gift for dad – right now she is adding some finishing touches to her ‘dad painting’ – a DIY project by IDEmøbler and Frk. Hansen – get your print right here.
Here are a few other gift ideas for your favourite dad.
