A Very Scandi Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Although the best part of the holidays is time with family and (let’s be real) great food, there’s also something special about the look on your loved one’s face when she opens a thoughtful gift – maybe something to which she wouldn’t normally treat herself.

Because we know you don’t have a ton of time to search out the perfect present, we’ve drawn up a starter-list of some of the most beautiful, fun and useful products out there. All with a Scandi-slant, of course.
