For the last minute Christmas gift shopping I wanted to share three personal favorites from the new Shades collection from Georg Jensen as it offers both luxurious and affordable everyday items perfect for gifting. I’ve had the opportunity to fall a little in love with the collection over the past couple of months and found my top three that I’ve both suggested friends and now also sharing with you.
The collection is received as a PR gift, however this post is not endorsed or sponsored by Georg Jensen.
First favorite is the sculptural bookmark which is currently used to keep track of my night time reading. Its a fun and practical little item to add to gifting a book for Christmas. Besides being visually nice, I love that it won’t demolish like paper book marks.
I’m really into the elegant shape of this key chain and it has become the perfect substitute for my old that desperately needed retirement. My mother used to have the Ellipse key chain, but lost it after many years of use. Planning on replacing it with a copy of this one and hope she will be just as happy.
The bag hanger is my absolute favorite from the whole collection and I cannot count how many times people have been equally amazed by it’s functionality as I’ve pulled it up on a coffee date. Honestly, I would never have thought that a bag hanger would make so much sense to me. I’ve never been interested in handbags and always preferred tactical bags that are attachable to the body - like fanny packs. However, as I’ve grown older, having a real handbag somehow became relevant for me for practical and professional reasons. So this year I invested in my first. I personally prefer using my more delicate purchases rather than preserving them – however I still want to make sure they last long. This is where the hanger has changed my bag game; it saves the bag from dirty floors and helps me to keep it from taking up surface area in public places. It’s the type of item I have come to value on an almost daily basis and never would have thought I needed before I had it – qualities that, in my opinion, make a perfect gift!
The visuals of this post grew out of an immediate instinct to capture the brass material as the very scarce december sun strokes hit it through my bedroom window. Got a lot of questions on my IG story of how they were created: it’s not studio lighting - just the sun and its magic.
