Well here we are – four weeks out from Christmas and what is going to be my first holiday period in Nordics. Having lived in New Zealand for most of my life where the seasonal activities involve sun, bbq’s and a lot of time at the beach with friends you can say things are feeling a bit different this year. I am looking forward to embracing the coziness of a Norwegian Christmas but as much as I do enjoy the cold, there are a few things you need to own to ensure survival in sub zero temperatures and what better way to get these things than as presents!

Although they aren’t the most exciting presents in the world, gloves and scarves are very practical and work perfect as stocking fillers that will receive a ton of wear.
