Tiina's Gift Guide

This time of the year brings back so many sweet memories from my childhood in Finland where Christmas is all about traditions. It's about bringing joy and light to your loved ones during the darkest time of the year as well as staying warm and cozy. My gift ideas are straight from my Finnish heart!

I love the whimsical side of Finnish design and especially items inspired by folklore. Klaus Haapaniemi's Les Chats Amis de Putte pillows and his Taika serving pieces, Aarikka's wooden decorations and candle holders, Marimekko textiles, the beautiful handmade Sooty Owl and glasses by Iittala are pure design with a touch of magic!

Christmas morning should be cozy and so should the gifts. Hand knit cashmere in happy stripes, or graphic black and white by The Elder Statesman, warm gloves by Hope and toasty socks by Album di Famiglia, plush mohair throws by Lena Rewell and a hand knit alpaca teddy bear by Dosa will bring warmth to you and your home.

 Utility and beauty are a perfect recipe for good gifts. Handmade kitchen tools by Blackcreek Mercantile and baskets by Verso, beautiful tea towels by Klassbols, graphic oven mittens by Artek, Iittala's timeless Marimekko bowl in festive red and delicate fire votives are gifts to be used and enjoyed for years to come.

Please let us know how we can help you to create your perfect gift list and get it delivered beautifully gift wrapped straight to your home. Happy Holidays from all of us at TIINA the STORE!
