Here below you will find my selection for her and for him. At D-24, the countdown has begun, it’s time to get started if you don’t want to end up with your head in the stuffing.

The choice of her collection is very varied and I sincerely recommend you to go have a look on her website. However for this festive selection my attention has been drawn to the S’Well bottle. Made of stainless steel, this design bottle available in several versions will delight the sportive as well as the thirsty ones. Keeps water fresh for 24 hours and warm for 12 hours and its airtight lid ensures transport without the risk of leaking.

Nintendo Nes Mini
Born in the 80s, I grew up with game consoles. Ever since, the portable ones have gradually replaced them and I admit that I lost track. This year, Nintendo did it again! A little flashback with the excellent Mario Bros and other Kirby’s adventure are reunited in this mini console that reminds me that 30 years have passed. Thank you Nintendo 😉
