Whatever you may say, it is quite possible that December is the most wonderful time of the year. There is something so festive about winter weddings, Christmas parties and reminiscing about the past year that makes us feel super warm and fuzzy inside. Though most people dread the thought of Christmas shopping, we actually enjoy it and love watching our friend’s faces light up (most of the time) as they unwrap their presents. Each year, Dandelion hosts our own internal Secret Santa so to anyone out there reading, here is our list of what we want this Christmas! Disclaimer: we spent all day at Clove, our newest stockist, picking out our favourite items to make life easier for you shoppers. Clove carries a carefully curated selection of independent, handcrafted labels from India across fashion and lifestyle categories including dining, bath, kids-wear, beauty, sleepwear and apparel.
"With holidays just around the corner, we have dressed up Clove as a transporting space that allows one to experience the festive cheer of Christmas, the joy of gifting and discovering unique pieces, while appreciating the craftsmanship, quality and innovation of India at work in our Christmas edit.” Says Samyukta, so you know that not only will you find the best gifting ideas, but the ambience and atmosphere is seriously Christmassy.
Christmas Pyjamas from Dandelion Pyjamas
We are so in love with our newest edition of pyjamas that we had to pin them to the top of our list. Pick from penguins or reindeers for your pair of customized Christmas pyjamas. These come in all shapes and sizes including ones tiny enough for babies making them the perfect way to help your child start feeling that Christmas cheer.
Tree Ornaments from Safomasi and The Lohasmith
Whether you observe Christmas or not, decorating a tree is always a fun group activity and we make sure to do this every year at the Dandelion office.
