The team at Vogue Scandinavia uncover what they hope to find under the tree this year
Christmas is right around the corner, and these are the times when many of us are in the final days of the quest for that perfect gift for a loved one. If our picks for the delightful little stocking stuffers left you feeling uninspired, or the tailored gift guides didn't quite hit the mark, don’t fret – we’re here to help you further.
The art of gifting is relatively simple in the end because with gifts, it genuinely is the thought that counts. However, even though the options for a great present can seem endless, we always have that one loved one who famously seems to have everything. Hoping that the following will help out anyone who is still figuring out the perfect gift, below, the team at Vogue Scandinavia has revealed what’s on their stylish wishlist this year.
Allyson Shiffman, Senior Fashion Writer
South Beach Vase
"Miami Vice realness. I didn't know it was possible to love a vase this much, but that's adulthood I guess."
Natalie Salmon, Digital Editor
"Firmly on my Christmas wish list is a comfy set that can take me straight from lounging at home to nipping out to a meeting without raising an eyebrow. This navy number from Labeca looks just as good in the sheets as it does in the streets, and is crafted from lightweight knitted fabric which is extra soft to the touch."
Eliza Sörman Nilsson, Deputy Digital Editor
Chloé x Moonboot
Leather and shearling snow boots
"All I want for Christmas is snow (and snow boots). I’ve had my eye on Chloe x Moonboot collab ever since it launched. The perfect mix of cuddly and chic. Can you think of a better excuse to embrace the weather?"

Teddy slingback pumps
"A statement shoe is an infallible investment, especially if gifted. These faux fur teddy slingbacks from Totême are an incredibly chic way to ground my ensembles for 2022. While in a basic black, the experimental material elevates any outfit. Currently wishing upon a start to find these fabulous kitten heels under the tree."
Esteban G Villanueva, Beauty Editor
Airwrap Complete Styler Gift Edition
"Remember how I said that I wasn't asking for beauty products for my stocking stuffers? Well, I take that back and now literally all I want for Christmas is Dyson's Airwrap Styler - Gift Edition. I've been eyeing the cult-beauty-favourite styler for quite some time now — both thanks to its unique aesthetic and its revolutionary technology —, and their new colour wave (that luxurious deep-blue-with-golden-accents dream) completely finished me and fully sold me on it and now I'm just crossing my fingers that I was good enough of a good boy for the Christmas Gnome to get it under my tree this year. It's the peak of everything I love — a high tech, aesthetically pleasing, clearly effective beauty product. What else would I want for Christmas?"
Mona M. Ali, Diversity and Inclusion Editor
"Finding comfortable underwear can be incredibly difficult. When I first found out about this new Scandinavian sustainable underwear brand called Bare, I knew I had to get hold of a pair. I tried them on at a photoshoot few months ago and I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind! Forget Skims, please get me Bare instead."
Amelie Langenskiöld, Fashion Assistant
"I recently wrote an article about statement blankets and ever since I can't get my mind of them. This black and white striped wool blanket from Tekla is an absolute dream. Please please Santa!"
Rebecka Thorén, Assistant to Editor in Chief
Re-nylon midi skirt
"This perfect Prada skirt is on top of my wishlist this year. A staple piece that I will keep in my wardrobe forever."
Roeland Vanheesbeke, Digital Designer
"Spending Christmas abroad always makes you think about your hometown. To bring Antwerp a little closer this year, I will choose this shirt from a unisex Antwerp label - Cap Studios. Easy to throw on and will elevate the day-to-day office look."
Sara Sorino, Customer Relations Manager
The Baby Boxer
"In my opinion, the bags from Halm have the perfect mix between Scandinavian minimalism and a pop of colour. I had a hard time picking a colour, but I have settled for the yellow ('mango'). Perhaps its on the summery side but with the lack of sun up north, it’s exactly what’s needed."
Jennifer Nilsson, Social Media Editor
Chunky Cheetah Earrings
"These cheetah earrings by Stockholm-based ‘Endangered Jewellery’ are at the top of my wish list. I try to give back during the holiday season, and so I appreciate the brand’s mission of donating 20 per cent of all sales to protect wildlife. The fact that the earrings are super cute is an obvious plus."
