A Scandinavian Christmas part II: gift ideas

For a little Scandi spin on Christmas gifts, check out these gift ideas:

These tea candle holders are a real classic, and I have them myself in both blue and light green. Ittala Kivi votives from £9.50 from John Lewis.

Also from Ittala, these cute jars are a favourite of mine. I keep mine in the kitchen filled with whole cardamom and star anise. Pretty and practical. From £12 at Skandium.

Marimekko is another Finnish brand that I really like, their Unikko (poppy) is their most popular print and I love these teatowels with the print in sedated colours. £11.50 at Skandium.

I have a soft spot for Moomin, and find this cake server adorable, especially at a children’s party. £11.50 at Skandium.

Once we’re on the subject of Moomin, I also like to show you this Moomin cookbook. Easy recipes and very Scandinavian of course. £9.08 at Amazon.

Another cookbook that is a staple in every Swedish home is Swedish cakes and cookies. It has all the classic trusted recipes and I consult it often. £9.12 at Amazon.

Norwegian London-based food blogger Signe Johansen has a cookbook out as well, that is on my wish list. £11.40 at Amazon.

This navy and white jug is so pretty, from Design House Stockholm. £52.55 at John Lewis.
