Christmas always seems to come around so quickly, don’t you agree? The hunt for gifts has already begun and to make sure we don’t find ourselves dashing round the shops at the last minute again, this year we’ve started our Christmas shopping early – at BIKINI BERLIN! And the best thing about it: we’re also giving away our chosen gifts in an Advent competition! In fact, we love our picks so much, we want to win them ourselves! We hope you like our round-up of gift ideas as much as we do!
It’s all in the wrapping and decorations!
For the decorations in the entrance area and the specially designed Christmas wrapping paper, this time BIKINI BERLIN is cooperating with ZEBU, an illustrator and artist duo from Berlin.
And as a nod to the neighbouring zoo, you can admire the charming, huge animal figures hanging from the ceiling in the area in front of the panoramic monkey window. Here you’ll also find a gift-wrapping station, where all your purchases can be gift-wrapped free of charge in the specially designed paper by ZEBU.
Unique gifts from Japan
We were immediately drawn to the window of Japan store Chaya. Here we picked out two little wooden figures wearing kimonos. And to round off the set, we also chose a wonderful tea caddy, green tea (of course!) and a traditional Japanese tea spoon.
You can enter our giveaway of the “Japan set” from 3 December until 9 December 2017.
Tropical and hygge vibes for your home
There’s a reason why our own studio is called Maison Palmė: we love anything tropical and green! At the Schwesterherz pop-up box, we discovered a palm print including picture frame, as well as velvet baubles and a fragrant candle for cosy winter nights.
You can enter our giveaway of the “Tropical set” from 10 until 16 December 2017.
Elegance for your office
If we had our way, we would only ever use the Roeder fountain pen to sign our names! Nothing beats the elegance of traditional writing instruments. Visit the shop at BIKINI BERLIN’s 25hours Hotel to discover the exclusive pens by Roeder.
You can enter our giveaway of the “Roeder fountain pen” from 17 until 23 December 2017.
Desk lamp for design lovers
We can’t visit BIKINI BERLIN without paying a visit to the . We love everything they sell here! But the limited Vitra RAW Edition Lampe de Bureau by Jean Prouvé was a real find. What an amazing desk lamp! We love it so much we even bought it for ourselves!
You can enter our giveaway of the “Prouvé desk lamp” from 24 until 30 December 2017.
