Success_2_grande

It’s that time of the year again and I’d like to share what’s cool to get as a Xmas gift for various kinds of friends. I have broken down to 3 major styles of people (be it boys or girls): Sophisticated, Cool, and Posh/Classy, and hope you can find some inspirations from here!

Aesop are one of my top picks – it’s not only about the product itself, but the booklet inside. It digs into the Futurist revolution and the story behind – so much more than just the quality products that the receiver can enjoy.
