Celebrated on 19 December, a best-loved holiday for children – St. Nicholas Day, is fast approaching, where good little girls and boys traditionally wake up to gifts laid under their pillows. So as to help you make your list and check it twice, here’s a selection of our favourite gifts to wake up to and where to find them.
Candies and baked goods are always a hit, though maybe best not left under the pillow. Chocolates, eclairs, and vegan desserts are the hottest thing right now!

2. UNFORGETTABLE IMPRESSIONS
Tired of the tie? Make an impression instead.
For example, an evening spa for two, a photo session, or tickets to a concert.
3. ITEMS FOR THE HOME
Blankets, scented candles, photo frames, sleep masks, teacups, garlands, and more are fun to give and receive!

4. A BOOK BY YOUR FAVORITE AUTHOR
A book is always a great gift. World classics or contemporary, contemporary fiction, self-development or psychology. And the fact that it’s something you have enjoyed makes it all the more special.

There is no one we know who doesn’t like a fun gadget, so pick something that really connects. Anything from a portable charger to a brand-new laptop – whatever your budget will allow.

6. PERFUME AND COLOGNE
Fragrances are always at the top of the list in UA. And we have nothing against that, because who doesn’t like to smell good?

Regardless of whether you’re buying for a man or woman, with so many fabulous local designers you are spoiled for choice. Not sure about size? Go more for ‘homewear’ – cosy slippers, cute pyjamas, or a bathrobe.
The skin becomes more sensitive to weather conditions in the winter so make sure your loved ones are ready for the temperature drop with a set of lotions and potions.

9. JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES
No woman we know would ever turn down a piece of jewellery, and whoever came up with the idea that giving a man a watch is a bad sign is now long gone. Go, splurge.
