I think that on a holistic, global level we can collectively agree that 2016 has pretty much been one of the darkest years in modern history. This makes gifting either super important or not important at all. If you’d prefer to donate to Aleppo, you can do that here, none of us know exactly where this will end up and it’s pretty confusing to say the least. Focussing on those near to you is also super important, and so I’ve pulled together this alternative gift guide to give some inspiration.
First up, as we know how important documentation really is, the Olloclip Core Lens and accessories that the company has to offer have come on so far in the last few years – giving a lot of other known iPhone accessory brands a run for their content. You can shop it online here.
Secondly, you see a million kids with glow-up teeth whitening kits on Instagram and let’s be real – there’s a market for it, but the products highlighted never feel all that natural. I’ve personally been exploring more organic methods and one is carbon. I’d recommend SHINE’s activated carbon formula which you can shop at www.misfitcosmetics.com.
Next up, one of my favourite online retailers MR PORTER has just teamed up with Japanese brand Remi Relief on a capsule collection which you can explore in full here. My personal favourite items are the Quilted Shell Down Jacket and Brooklyn t-shirt below.
If you have an adventure day in mind – because let’s be real – what is better than completely immersing yourself in another world, you could try the following for your inner adrenaline: Virgin Experiences and Last Minute.
Finally, a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label never goes a miss. This year, the iconic brand has teamed up with Asprey on this brilliant collaborative set, which you can purchase over at www.thewhiskyexchange.com.
