The only gift guide that you’ll need this Christmas

During the last few weeks my inbox has been full of wonderful gift guides. From stocking fillers to luxury items, the most beautiful things all listed and ready to buy, just a click away. And as much as I love shopping for others and, well, for me, this year there is only one item in our gift guide. And I would be very grateful if you could share it and include it in your gift guides as well. Do you remember the hilarious Ice Bucket Challenge that was all over the Internet last year?  Well, it was created to promote awareness of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. I watched every Instagram video that appeared on my feed, even more if it involved some gorgeous celebrity. My guess is you did too. But I didn’t donate. I can imagine that most people did the same, though I truly hope that if you saw those challenges you did donate. I truly hope you are a better person than I. ALS is a …

Xmas series: what kids want

Today we share with you the last chapter of this year’s gift guide. And it’s dedicated to the little ones. We’ve put together a few items that would be great for kids… and for us too. I mean: how amazing are the Superman pyjamas and the baking kit? 1. This kit would be perfect for little bakers. It has all you need to make cookies even more delicious. 2. I used to love Walkie Talkies when I was a kid. These ones are super cool, right? Perfect for adventures in the garden! 3. Pyjamas with super powers to fight nightmares. 4. These personalised hairbrushes are a very special gift that kids will treasure when they grow up. The brush quality is a mixture of pure boar bristle and nylon or pure bristle. The pure bristle is perfect as a first hairbrush or for children with very fine hair. 5. Warm koala slipper boots for those tiny feet. 6. A Barbie. A ballerina Barbie, to be exact. Barbie is not the best role model, I know. But almost every little girl wants a pink …

Xmas series: what couples want

Today we want to give you some ideas to get the perfect present for those lovely couples in your life. Sometimes two of your friends or two of your family members come as a pack: your cousin and his lovely girlfriend, those friends who are together since the beginning of times, your parents… Why not giving them a present that suits both of them? 1 & 2: two lovely sweaters for those cosy afternoons they love to spend at their favourite cafe. You can get these at The Kooples. 3 & 4: music or DVD box sets. Which couple doesn’t like cuddling up in the sofa while enjoying their favourite music or film? You can go for the classics: Beatles or James Bond. 5 & 6: Cooking and travelling together are the most popular hobbies for couples, so these books would be a great gift. Yesterday we shared a recipe of this book,Nigella Express, so you already know that we love it. And every traveller or foodie couple would love this book. And since couples …
