With Santa living in the Lapland (the Finnish side), give a gift from Scandinavia is a wonderful way to make Christmas festive! Here are a couple ideas from Sweden or inspired by Sweden. If anyone knows any authentic Sami vendors, please add them in the comments section.
For the person who loves Swedish crime literature:::
The Princess of Burundi by Kjell Eriksson
Bonus tip! — If you can afford it, give the whole set! If you’re not sure the person will like the book, you may want to give one of the books plus a gift card to their favorite bookstore. You can also accompany the book with a coffee mug and Swedish coffee, a book lamp, or a cozy blanket from Swedish chain IKEA.
Gift ideas for the Swedish food lover:::
Hash by Torgny Lindgren
Swedish coffee basket by Anderson Butik
Coffee and sweets gift box by Anderson Butik
Swedish pancake basket by Anderson Butik
Bonus tip! — Select a coffee and food product that naturally go together and give them as a pair. The gift baskets make shopping and wrapping easier!
Gifts for the Swedish home:::
Swedish table prayer tile
Iron candle holder with hearts
Iron candle holder with wild horses
Algfamilj tea towel
Bonus tip! — A gift card to IKEA would go nicely with any of these. A lovely handwritten message or something that is personal and has sentimental value is also nice to give with gifts for the home.
Gifts for people on the go:::
Carrie Swedish lace bicycle basket
Bonus tip! — A nice key chain would go well with either of these.
God Jul! Merry Christmas!
