Spiero 2017 Gift Guide
We know some people have it all wrapped up by December 1st and some run around in a frenzy on December 24th. But for everyone else here is the Spiero 2017 Gift Guide. We'll tell you who will love what.
For the Design Purist.
They like to know how their coffee beans have been roasted. They only wear socks from one particular brand. They subscribe to Architectural Digest and read it. They always give you the best presents because they take time to peruse little designer shops and would never buy something generic on Amazon. This is the gift for them. A coffee set designed in 1931 and deemed such a timeless piece of design that it holds a place in both MoMA and V&A’s permanent collections.
For the Hygge Lover
An appreciation of hygge is all about cosy fireside rituals. Candlelight and craftsmanship. A harking back to a simpler time before technology got in the way of quiet contented togetherness. This rustic glassware would look great on their scrubbed white oak dining table accessorized with casually strewn sheepskins. They may well also be GOT fans (just google it). They need glassware that’s been hand made in the same German forest for 400 years.
For the Hipster Couple
They are always on a minibreak. Any remotely cultural event is an excuse to organise a social gathering. These are the friends who invite you to brunch (what is that?).They love new experiences and will immerse themselves in any adventure (donning lederhosen for Oktoberfest). They are the best fun. They have been to Berlin already of course. And if they haven’t, this little slice of Berlin for those rare cosy mornings when it’s just the two of them, will go down a treat.
For the Foodie
They can tell the difference between Greek and Italian olive oil. Their idea of holiday fun is buying artichokes at the farmer's market. They love to talk about ingredients and provenance and the aromatics of this and the texture of that. They used to bring home the finest delicacies from their trips abroad but Ryanair put a stop to that. They want something unique that can’t be bought at a high end department store. An authentic taste of another cuisine and culture. Give them our Deluxe German Christmas box full of artisan goodies. You would have to tour Germany to assemble it yourself. They will be impressed.
For the Aesthete
Their homes are carefully curated palaces to style. Their outfits are always “put together” down to the last carefully placed bangle or pocket square. Their swimwear always matches their beach towel. They know about Art and actually have real art on their walls (not just printed posters). And they are the one at any party who knows how to mix the perfect Moscow Mule. Celebrate their aesthetic sense with these mouth blown Cocktail glasses by Von Poschinger.
