Gift Guide: Lifestyle

Pssst! Don't tell all the beauty feinds but, lifestyle is actually my favorite category and this year I went all out. I bought some very nice things indeed. Want proof? Some were so good and I was so happy with them that I went back and repeated my purchase. Twice! If that isn't an indication of striking gold, then I don't know what is. Anything off this list would be the best present ever.

Bedding is much needed in any household and I was never happy with colorful, bright or white bedding – I much prefer dark colors. I sleep better and feel much more cozy bundled up in it. Jysk Emmy Duvet Covers are absolutely perfect. I bought 4 duvet covers (you get one cover and one pillowcase per packaging) and it's of a really good quality, washes well and is incredibly comfortable and soft. We have a king size bed so finding sheets isn't easy but Jysk Kronborg Flat Sheets completed our bed entirely. We went for grey and dark purple sheets – they're amazing. I'd highly recommend getting these for people with bigger bed, newlyweds, young couples and such.

I love a good plaid blanket but I prefer them a bit thinner while bed throws are the ones I prefer thick. Jysk fleece checked blanket is great for really chilly nights to be thrown over a throw for some extra toastiness or just to throw it over a chair. I love gifting mugs and candles as I find you cannot go wrong with them. Retro Home was where I picked up this gorgeous red, three wick candle – isn't it amazing? I've got the festive wrapping tape and these stunning purple baubles at Retro Home as well whilst the smaller gold baubles are from drogerie markt. I think that adding some festive decorations to any present is always welcome and can only enrich the recipient's decor.

Fuzzy, warm socks are a great present and I haven't even thought of taking Jysk Ejlert wintry socks off ever since unpacking them. They're soo warm and soft. I love pairing them with pajamas and another little thing I'm absolutely in love with. Ellesse Thermal Bottoms are basically underwear but I wear them as loungewear. They're so comfortable, snug and stretchy. Incredibly warm yet never making you sweaty, they're just ideal for anyone living in their loungewear (like I am). They're also very useful come extremely cold winter when I'll be wearing them under jeans.

I found great mugs at Jysk, Retro Home, Vicko and Avon – the Avon bear mug is such a cutie and anything resembling a Mason jar is bound to be loved. Fairy lights, prints and frames are all lovely presents and some interesting trinkets such as an hourglass we received recently are interesting and people notice them as soon as they enter the room. Well, I hope my homeware obsession and the present selection arising from it is interesting for you guys. It was such a joy making this lifestyle guide!

  • Ššššš! Nemojte me odati ljubiteljicama kozmetike ali na popisu stvarčica za kupovinu i darivanje su mi omiljene stvari za kuću. Želite dokaz? Pojedinim sam stvarima toliko bila zadovoljna da sam se vratila i kupila još – u dvije ture! Ako to nije pokazatelj da sam zadovoljna njima te da ih od srca preporučujem – onda ne znam šta je. Bilo šta sa ove liste će biti odličan poklon, u to nemojte sumnjati.
  • Kada je kuća u pitanju, posteljina je uvijek dobrodošla. Nikada nisam bila zadovoljna posteljinom u svijetlim bojama (bijelom pogotovo) ili šarenim dezenima. Najviše volim tamnu posteljinu i primjetila sam da imam bolji san otkako sam je nabavila. Jysk Emmy krep posteljinom (20KM) sam izuzetno zadovoljna i kupila sam četiri seta (u jednom setu dolazi jorganska navlaka i jastčnica). Odličnog je kvaliteta, lijepo se pere i nevjerovatno je mekana. Imamo veliki krevet tako da nije najlakše pronaći plahtu 200×200 dimenzija. Jysk Kronborg plahta (40KM) je perfektna za velike krevete – nemojte da vas 240×260 dimenzije preplaše jer ova plahta nije na gumu, već je klasična. Iznenađujuće, ne povlači se i ne pomjera tokom spavanja. Uzeli smo je u sivoj i ljubičastoj boji. 
  • Pokloniti lijepu kariranu deku je pun pogodak. Ja volim malo tanje deke dok prekrivače za krevete preferiram da su deblji. Jysk Markapp deka od flisa (19.95KM) je super za prebaciti preko stolice, fotelje ili dodatno krevet utopliti sa njom. Mirisne svijeće i šolje nikada neće dosaditi a u Retro Home radnji sam kupila ovu fantastičnu crvenu svijeću za 15KM sa tri fitilja. Zar nije prekrasna?  U Retru sam pronašla i ove lijepe Božićne ukrasne trake (6KM), glamurozne ljubičaste ukrasne kugle (4KM) a male zlatne kuglice sam kupila u drogerie marktu (6KM). Mislim da nije loše nekom većem poklonu dodati ove male dekorativne sitnice.
  • Tople, mekane čarape nikada neće izaći iz mode – ako mene pitate i ako već čitate moj vodič za kupovinu, onda bez inhibicija kupite par kvalitetnih čarapa. Jysk Ejlert zimske čarapice (5KM) nisam skinula otkako sam ih kupila i kombinujem ih uz omiljene pidžame. Još nešto čime sam oduševljena su  Ellesse Thermal helanke (25KM) iz Sport Life-a koje su ustvari donji veš ali ja ih nosim umjesto pidžame. Udobne su, elastične, lijepo prijanjaju uz tijelo i jako su tople bez da izazivaju znojenje. Kupite ih osobi koja doslovno živi u udobnoj odjeći, poput mene. Korisne su jer ih možete nositi ispod odjeće kada nastupe baš velike hladnoće.
  • Lijepe šolje sam pronašla u Jysk, Retro Home, Vicko radnjama i Avonu – šolja u obliku mede iz Avona je presimpatična a svaka tegla koja sliči Mason staklenkama će biti hit. Ukrasne lampice, dekorativni printovi, okviri za slike su interesantni pokloni kao i neke, što bi se reklo, nefunkcionalne ali zanimljive sitnice. Za primjer ću uzeti pješčani sat koji smo dobili nedavno – čim nam neko uđe u stan primjeti ga i prostorija je dobila na šarmu uz njega. Nadam se da vam je moja opsesija kućanskim stvarima kao i vodič njima inspirisan bio interesantan. Meni je bilo zadovoljstvo pripremati ga za vas!
