Secret Santa: pick a date, chose a budget and draw names.

The concept seems simple at first but it can actually become one of the most arduous battles.

Time is ticking. And sure, for those who picked someone they know by heart, finding a gift is an easy task. But what about the rest of us who picked for instance that distant cousin; or that new colleague at the firm; or simply that acquaintance with whom we've never bonded?

Considering the pressure of the situation, I have managed to come with a selection in order to help the Santas in need:

1. For the Sleepless
Love Eye Mask by Love Stories Intimate: 30€

2. For the Gentleman
Tank Whiskey Glasses by Tom Dixon: 51€

3. For the Philosopher

4. For the Coquette

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...

The period comes of course with lights, carols and an inevitable gift hunt. I always start the month full of ideas for what to give (or buy for myself ...) and end up stressing due to my favorite tradition: leaving it all to the last minute. Therefore, even thought I am not asking for anything this year, I though I should share a little selection in case the inspiration disappears.

1. Peter Lindberg photography book from Taschen / 2. Houndstooth tweed blazer from Pierre
Balmain / 3. Frayed Hem jeans from Zara / 4. Silver-plated cuff from Jennifer Fisher / 5. Phyloskios
