Guide to minimalist Christmas

Guide to minimalist Christmas

The season is here. We are starting to plan for the festivities and selecting gifts and menus for the Christmas table.

We here at Jenny Nordic feel that now more than ever it is the time to support small businesses. That’s why we curated this guide to help you choose mindful gifts for your loved ones. We love everything minimal, and sustainable with a hint of Nordicness of course.

Why are we gifting?

Gifting is an ancient tradition, likely to be as old as humanity itself. It’s believed to be common practice in prehistory, helping to maintain friendly relations and building bonds of trust between different groups of people.

We continue this tradition during the festive season of the year. Giving and receiving are wonderful things but we are also worried about the unsustainable side of consumerism. Instead of giving physical gifts, can we remember and appreciate each other in other ways? Gather together, or call someone and check-in. 

We are sure some gifts will be exchanged regardless this, and wanted to give inspiration and shout out to our fellow small businesses with sustainability at heart.

We collected our favourites from small businesses to support this season in this minimalist guide to Christmas - please have a read and get inspired!

Moi Moi is our favourite UK-based Nordic shop for small gifts and homeware. They offer affordable luxury across a carefully selected range of Finnish designs which are perfect for your home or gifts. All the products are unique and functional, beautiful, environmentally friendly and can bring style to your home.

Jenny Nordic Skincare - Quite Kate Studios candle

Quite Kate Studio makes Nordic-inspired earth-friendly candles and we more than love their work. The founder Kate was inspired by life slowing down during the pandemic and how being out in nature became a much bigger and more important part of her daily life. QK is all about giving ourselves time and space to be grateful, peaceful, and more grounded in the present.

Chia Cafe is our favourite local vegan cafe and restaurant. If you are planning to visit the quaint historic town of Hitchin during the festive season, this is your place to grab a coffee and a delicious cake, brunch or lunch!
