Sostrene Grene's Christmas collection arrives in stores this week – and we'll race you there

So perfectly Scandi.

I might be biased here, being a Scandi myself, but I have a deep love for simple, rustic and traditional Christmas decorations – and am not a fan of festive decor that is OTT, garish and tacky. Meaning, much as I appreciate both avocados and llamas IRL, in bauble form, neither will be coming anywhere near my Christmas tree, thank you very much.

Søstrene Grene – being a Danish store concept – gets this, of course. And hence every year, I find myself looking forward to their gorgeous Scandi and often almost nostalgic festive decor.

The festive Christmas 2020 collection is inspired by the North Pole’s aesthetic, nostalgic and true to tradition with ornaments and decorations made from natural materials. As well as this, you'll find plenty of inspiration for your Christmas baking and ideas for advent calendar gifts, as well as paper for wrapping your presents with care.

The collection will start arriving into Søstrene Grene stores nationwide this week, and here are just some of the thing we have our eye on right now:

This beautiful advent candlelight holder (you light a candle for each Sunday of Advent).

These beautiful ceramic Christmas trees.

Paper stars – we can never have enough.

Advent calendar stickers (in Scandinavia, it is common to make Advent calendars, and individually wrap 24 little presents for it).

A candle that smells like Christmas baking.

All the baking proper for the actual baking.

Beautiful ribbons for wrapping presents.

Trinkets and decor bits for every shelf and mantel in the house.

This collection will be available in stores worldwide, including Georges Street Dublin 2, Dun Laoghaire, Blanchardstown, Cork, Limerick, Belfast, Newry and Bangor from October 22nd.
