Barong Barong for men

One of my favourite fashion jewellery brands, Barong Barong, also features bracelets for men. Tough, yet refined, I think they make the perfect Christmas gift for the men in your life, don't you agree? Maybe a chic version in gold for your dad / husband  / lover... and a trendier one, for example with silver skulls, for your boyfriend / son / cousin. They are designed in The Netherlands and hand made in Indonesia.

Cabana St. Moritz

It's the first time ever I'm writing about a store that I haven't visited in person... (you guys know that I usually only publish about places that I've actually been to)... but sometimes you just have to break the rules! Cabana St. Moritz is the younger sibling of Cabana Capri, a wonderful store that I did visit this summer and fell completely in love with.

The owner, Helen White, is a London-based New Yorker who is a former editor at American Vogue. She has such exquisite taste... I literally want to buy every single item in her shop! Beautiful dinner plates, silver-bamboo cutlery, contemporary glass art, the latest beach bags and cover-ups... you name it, it's there.

The same goes for Cabana St. Moritz (Thank God for social media.... allowing us to see what the Swiss store has to offer): stunning tableware, gorgeous home decor, chic fashion accessories and last but not least... lovely Christmas gifts!
Ps. Santa.... I want those mushroom plates....

Affordable Holiday Gifts



Are you looking for affordable Christmas gifts? Or cute stocking fillers? Look no further! I've done the research for you and found these adorable but inexpensive presents. It's all about hitting the right notes... or in other words... finding something funny, special, comforting and thoughtful. To me it's important that gifts will make the receiver feel good. Let them know you think about them. That doesn't mean you have to buy something expensive. In fact, all gifts shown here are under €10 / $11 and some even under €5 / $5,50!
