Gift Guide: 37 Finds by Local Designers to Spoil Your Favourite People

Writing this article made realize that Christmas is only two weeks away. In other words: it gives you a good idea about my organizational skills and how far I am regarding the gifts I have to buy. To my defence, if this post caught your eye, chances are you’re probably in a very similar situation. So welcome, last-minute aficionado!

Not to be a party pooper here, but Christmas is unfortunately a holiday that promotes over-consumption, from gifts to wine (let’s be honest: we’re kind of tipsy non-stop for a whole week) and turkey soaked in gravy (I’m hungry). With this gift guide, my goal is not to convince you to buy MORE stuff, but to buy BETTER stuff for your loved ones. I’ve thus gathered a bunch of beautiful objects, from earrings to ceramic mugs, all carefully made by local designers.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, GIRLS!
