Our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide
OSIER wishes you all a happy holiday season, with calm moments of recharge and time to spend with your loved ones.
2020 ends differently than we may have expected at the beginning of this year. Twelve challenging and unusual months lie behind us - with ups and downs, limitations and restrictions but also with new, surprising perspectives.
Usually, we celebrate the end of the year and reflect on the good events that happened. This year, more than ever, it is about looking into the new year with hope and joy. No matter how 2021 will be, we have to make it wholesome. From all the moments of the past year, what is it that we want to take with us? What do we want to let go of?
Currently, we only meet few people and have to focus on what surrounds us in the here and now.
Who is someone in your life you are grateful for, who helped you through?
For some of us, the economical situation and our routines shifted and changed the attitude towards giving gifts. But equal to previous years is the desire to give something to our closest beloved ones, to give back a piece of the love we received.
Do those presents now differ from previously? Well, in a way: YES. We should not support gigantic online retailers, destroying our local businesses. Choosing gifts that support the people around us and local businesses is important. New concepts, new ideas and sustainable goods are developed close by. We chose brands and objects, that add more than a materialistic value to the present.
We hope you are inspired and find a present for beloved ones or yourself.
