5 Xmas Gift Ideas To Never Go Wrong

Lacking inspiration for that original and personal Christmas gift to get for your close friends or family?   Here are 5 Xmas gift ideas that would definitely put a big smile to the lucky recipient’s face.




L’Occitane box sets. L’Occitane offers such a broad range of composed sets to please every taste, ranging from perfumes, hand and body care, and bath products.  They also have sets specially created for her and for him, for a couple, and even for boys and girls.  The 2016 collection sets come packed in Mediterranean shades. My favorite is the Irrestible Almond Collection for soothing care with a shower oil, soap, body milk, and hand cream.  You can receive a FREE magic ball box with promo code “CHRISTBALL” by shopping in their store or online (starting from the 4th December).


A pen. The world may be going digital, but we still can’t get by without a pen. Caran d’Ache makes them in an unimaginable range of colors and all packed in striking boxes (that are a collectible in themselves).   For the digital diehards, Montblanc recently announced its launch of a new connected pen.  I would love to try it out… (hint hint).


A cashmere sweater. Nothing beats the warm luxurious feel of cashmere at this time of the year. I suggest going for simple timeless design in neutral shades (black, beige or white). Check out Eric Bompard, Uniqlo, and Theory.


A watch. That’s tricky. Just as for a book, be sure you know the person’s tastes.  A classical piece may well turn into a personal memento they treasure for a long time.


Unforgettable experience. You are really gifting the opportunity to create a memory, preferably together with the person.  It can be a trip, a spa, or an activity, the more unusual, the better. Looking out for something in Switzerland? I recently stayed at Hotel Palafitte and would highly recommend it for a romantic getaway. Or what about the Whitepod Hotel up in the mountains – must be magical when it is totally snowed-in…
