LAST-MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFTSWritten by Yasmine
Last-minute gift buying can be tricky, but we have gathered some great options that will make someone really happy this Christmas. The gifts that will keep on giving; not only for Christmas, but throughout 2023.
Apple Watch Series 8 TECH
If you want to make someone happy this year (or yourself), go all in with the new Apple Watch Series 8. The watch is not only a great gift for the tech enthusiast, but someone you know that need help to keep track of their daily adventures. The latest smartwatch series combines a new better women’s health tracker with wrist temperature, as well as readings for an estimation of your menscycle. If you track your health when you are healthy, it can hopefully help to give an alert when perhaps something isn’t as it should be. Find the new Apple Watch at apple.com
Classic Retro-X® Fleece Jacket, Patagonia FASHION
Patagonia has always been at the forefront when it comes to quality clothing and thinking about more than just the clothes themselves. The best part about gifting a fleece jacket like this - is that with great care – will be a lifelong piece in someone's life. A warm and windproof 100% polyester bonded ¼”-pile fleece jacket for cool, blustery weather. With Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, choose if you buy it in a women’s or men’s silhouette. I know I would be happy. Find it at patagonia.com
The Walking Pad, C2 SPORT
Yes, I said it, a walking pad. Living in Scandinavia during the winter makes it a bit more difficult to get outside for a daily run. If you know someone who continues to work from home or studies full-time. This is a generous and most likely surprising gift. That will make the entire family want to try walking on the pad. The Pad comes in a variety of colors and levels – to fit the person you give it to. If you want a more advanced running pad or a calm and slim design to fit under your desk. It’s easy and breezy. Find it at amazon or at walkingpad.com
Weight blanket, Cura of Sweden SLEEP
A weighted blanket is a perfect gift for someone you can’t give a physical hug to this holiday. Not to mention, if you know someone that struggles with sleep or mild anxiety. The soft blanket feels literally like a warm hug, that gives a sense of calm when you need it the most. The 6 kg weight fits perfect to have both on the sofa and in bed. It will definitely keep the person you give it too extra warm this season.

Crafted from a soft wool blend, this Italian-made scarf features a complementary reverse. The scarf has two sides, which makes it perfect to switch when your outfit is slightly different. So instead of having two blue scarves in different shades – one is enough. The blue calm colors have the Ralph Lauren signature Pony embroidered at one end.

Cloud & Glow Silk pillowcase BEAUTY/SLEEP
Together with a new ergonomic pillow from Cura of Sweden, a pillowcase can enhance both your sleep and hair. So, my last piece of advice is to give a luxurious silk pillowcase this Christmas. The Cloud & Glow Silk pillowcase is made from the highest quality 22 momme 6A grade 100% mulberry silk, and you can definitely feel it. It’s love at first touch. It helps your skin and hair to retain natural moisture and reduces the appearance of facial creases from sleeping on your face. In addition, prevents any tangles and frizz from your hair. All, so you can stay comfortable, and have sweet dreams. Find the pillowcase at cloudandglow.com
