Without sounding too much like a Mariah Carey-song, we really don’t want a lot for Christmas. Because there really isn’t that much we need. But below we’ve rounded up a few items that have sparked our interest. During the past year, we’ve come across so many talented designers, store owners and individuals who all work with and around sustainability. It is no secret (especially not to Santa), that we have eyed out a few items from them and added these to our conscious wish lists alongside a few of our favourite products from the YUME portfolio.
Anja’s Top Picks for Christmas
1: As wonderfully practical as it is sustainable, this weekender from O My Bag will fit all my priced belongings for a short getaway in the countryside. Andie’s Getaway Weekend Bag, €239. Find it here.
3: The Scented Candles from Honest are entirely made of soy wax. Even the wicks are made with eco-friends cotton coated in soy wax and the one with Japanese Yuzu is to die for. € 29. Find it here.
5: All that glitters is gold! Delicate glittery angle sock from sustainably oriented Dear Denier who work with sustainability in all levels of their value chain. Malene Ribs’n Glitter, €13.40. Find them here.
6: It means the world to me to be able to provide a sales platform for skilled artisans around the world, and this particular tray is a personal favourite of mine. Handhammered Brass Tray, €134. Find it here.
7: I am on the lookout for something classic with a twist for our bare walls. The Serious Dreamer by LouLou Avenue for Paper Collective is just what I’ve been looking for. €38. Find it here.
Marie’s top picks for Christmas
1: This stunner of a vintage rug would work wonders in well…just about any room in my house. One-of-a-kind and truly impressive. Vintage Berber Rug, €696. Find it here.
2: Warm rose is the new black, and this soft hued silk blouse from sustainability pioneer Fonnesbech would be perfect for Christmas Eve. Let’s hope Santa can stop by early in the morning…Edda Blouse Warm Rose, €255. Find it here.
3: Basically, I’m allergic to pretty much anything and I really have to be careful when it comes to skin care and beauty products. Miild have made my life easier with their allergy-friendly, organic products. Wouldn’t mind a bit of extra glow with the Mineral Highlight, DKK 360. Find it here.
4: Two small kids and a hallway the size of a shoe box is a very messy ordeal. The Mitten Shelf from Swedish Maze would definitely help optimise the space. Mitten Shelf made from recycled steel, €78. Find it here.
5: I need a drink. It’s as simple as that. And I wouldn’t mind trying out the new Botanisk Gin from Wenneberg og Sønner. Cheers! Two variants – check out the pink one! DKK 395. Find it here.
6: Anyone who knows me, know that I have this annoying habit of doodling whenever I’m on the phone. At least now, I’ll have a cool, upcycled notepad to doodle on. Notepad made from upcycled paper, €12. Find it here.
7: The lamps made in co-lab with LRNCE are a true work of love. I have so many fond memories of meeting up with Laurence, the designer behind the brand, on a hot rooftop more than 1,5 years ago. Happy and proud of the special partnership and totally in love with our unique lamps. Handmade and hand painted lamp from LRNCE x YUME, €644. Find it here.
