Stuck for ideas when it comes to presents this year? To ease the shopping, we put together 9 new products from the Finnish Design Shop’s selection, whether you’re looking for a suitable gift for a design lover, for someone who needs a little pampering, or for the one appreciating practicality. Get inspired by the new favorites!
Piece of poetic design
HAY's delicate favorite, the Matin luminaire by Inga Sempé, is now available in a wall and ceiling-mounted version. The metal frame of the lamp supports the pleated cotton shade, whose lightweight appearance brings a charming and elegant atmosphere to the space. Would the gift recipient enjoy a bright or light pastel color?
A person who loves to use a traditional paper calendar is delighted by Teemu Järvi's Best Friend calendar, which decorates the wall like a work of art. If the four-legged furry friends are also close to the gift recipient's heart, this gift will be a success. The calendar presents 12 adorable dog pictures printed on off-white, environmentally friendly paper.

An everyday assistant
Steamery's products are now available at Finnish Design Shop! A steamer is a great tool for quick garment care: hot steam not only straightens and smoothes but also removes odors and kills bacteria, extending the washing interval of clothes. In addition to practicality, the minimalist Cirrus steamer pleases the eye and is packed in a beautiful cover bag, which is convenient while traveling.
Craving for coffee
Peaceful weekend mornings and afternoon coffee moments feel a bit more special with Alessi’s La conica espresso coffee maker, whose elegant appearance delights in a table setting or in kitchen decor. The stainless-steel coffee maker features a combination of three geometric elements: a sphere, cone, and cylinder.
Sympathetic supporters for everyone
The unique Primordial Animals charm as little sculptures and put a smile on the face of both friends and family members. Arni Aromaa's ceramic figures are made of cast and their fun design leaves room for your imagination and interpretation. Finished with a striped decorative pattern, the animals are available in different sizes and colors.
For the home office
If a friend’s home office is reminiscent of chaos, it’s time to put the workstation in order. Vitra’s Locker Box is designed for the evolving needs of office work, and it conveniently carries your laptop, mouse, keyboard, and other accessories. Partially made of recycled materials, the box gathers work accessories at the end of the day, but is also suitable for storing other small, important items.
In case of a gifting emergency, a high-quality scented candle is always a desired item that will delight even after burning – the container can be reused, for example, as a tealight cup. Frama’s Deep Forest scented candle spreads earthy, woody aromas and is made from sustainably sourced vegetable wax. A candle snuffer will give the gift a final touch.
Gentle care for hair
Nuori’s Revitalizing hairbrush pampers your mother's or sister's locks, bringing luxury to daily hair care routines. The high-quality hairbrush is a combination of two types of bristles, which guarantee gentle detangling and frizz-free results. Made of ash, the Revitalizing hairbrush comes in an elegant case made of soft, vegan leather.
