Small Gift Guide

For Her

Shopping presents for a girlfriend, a sister, the best female friend or a mother can be quite frustrating. But there is always the perfect present, for every price range. The most simple gift idea is always jewellery. I am eyeing these pieces from Ariane Ernst quite a while now, they are such classical pieces, fairly priced and of course we love supporting small businesses. But let’s be honest, the real star here is the Mejuri Diamond Ring. Just overall perfection, especially if you are planning to purpose to someone. This Ring is a true yes!

For Him

This one is for all the dads, boyfriends, uncles and guys who didn’t get a PS5 this year. Music always cheers us up, so why not go back to the roots of music and gift someone a Record player and their very first record. This makes music much more appreciatable than listening via Spotify or Apple Music. Not a fan of the classics? No problem, the new AirPods are really good as a gift idea because you can personalise them.

Moving on, I found these incredible Birkenstocks with fur inside of them. They are definitely on the pricier side, but they are worth it.

The Homebody

Homebodies are definitely an easy category, giving them a vase from their favourite designer makes them beyond happy. But have you heard of Sculpd before? They make pottery kits for at home, this way you don’t spend a ton of money and the person you are gifting can make their own vase or decor piece. Do-It-Yourself presents and Games are definitely important to survive staying at home with your family over the holidays.

For everyone who loves cooking or just loves their kitchen, I would always recommend a cookbook. This Japan cookbook just looks absolutely yummy and it even includes sushi recipes! For a vegan alternative, I heard that the Bosh! cookbook should be really good.

Under 50€

Books are always a no-brainer, I listed three informative books at the top and some novels below. If you are considering shopping books for someone, maybe don’t order them online and rather support the local bookshops.

Besides books, gifting some skincare or cosmetics can be a cool idea too. I heard so much about the Gisou Hair Oil that I will definitely buy this for me. The travel size is even under 50 bucks, which is great!

Referring back to do-to-yourself presents, knitting is a huge trend right now. Have you heard of Wool And The Gang before? They sell knitting-kits for different products. You just pick the item you want to create and the colour of the yarn and the whole set is being delivered to your door, including knitting needles, a Made-by-Me label and the pattern. What a cool present to give to someone living in the colder regions.

Just not personal enough for you? Maybe gift your loved ones an experience rather than an item. When COVID is over my Mum and I will definitely try these incredible cool ArtNights. Drinking some wine and painting can be very relaxing. Perfect for a girls night.
