For the comfort craver
When the weather turns colder, take care of your loved one with the softest blanket they can curl up in at the end of long days. Made of Norwegian sheep wool, Røros Tweed's Moon throw is decorated with a charming pattern by Clara Von Zweigbergk, which is repeated on the other side in opposite tones. Choose the gift recipient's favorite color from the candy-like shades of the series!
Authentic sauna experience
Those who love saunas get excited about a new bathrobe, which brings luxury to everyday life after showering, bathing, or when just lounging around the house. Made of cotton, HAY's Duo robe is particularly lightweight and smooth, but great alternatives with cute slippers can also be found from Marimekko and Lapuan Kankurit.
Savings for future
Does your father dream about a little getaway or making a bigger purchase? The expressive Pauper Coin Collector finds its place on father's or grandfather's bookshelf and reminds him of the importance of both small and bigger dreams. Designed by the Finnish-Korean duo COMPANY for Artek, the piggy-bank has been influenced by Finnish traditions – add a bill to the chest of the ceramic man as a surprise.
For someone who tends to always be late, a quality alarm clock is never a bad choice – it surely pleases the practical type! Created by Japanese designer Kazushige Miyake, the stylish and simple Okiru alarm clock wakes you up gently and gives your day a good start.
A wine enthusiast or drink master with dashing cocktail-crafting skills might be delighted to have his own serving trolley, which could be placed either as an eye-catcher in the living room or as a sophisticated element in the reading corner. &Tradition's Alima NDS1 trolley is a versatile storage cart that combines elegant steel and warm wood – the V-shaped shelf serves as a convenient space for dad's favorite books.
