The Gesture of Giving
It is a beautiful act. The gesture of giving is one defined by hopes, sometimes dreams. It is certainly born out of affection and ideally delivered with subtlety. It is a momentary desire for connection, but one with a potential that says forever.
The wonder of giving lies in the imagination; some dream of the tangible – an object for the home or accessory – others are more abstract, longing for something that recalls the feel of water, smell of rain and is warm to the touch. Breathe and take the time for thought: Find inspiration as we ask the question: how do you fancy giving? We asked the employees at ANDREAS MURKUDIS to tell us about their personal gift of choice – inspiring, defining, memorable…
My favorite seasonal gift is the scented box by Aoiro. You don’t only present a scent, but a ritual, a moment of meditation. Shizuko and Manuel design their products with a lot of love for detail. Even the beautiful wooden box is crafted in Japanese tradition.
The cutting boards from Muller Van Severen – I love the colors! They are great for festive evenings: perfect for creating a platter of cheese, Wurst, bread and butter. Food for the soul!
My favorite Christmas gifts are the new ceramics by Society Limonta – every piece is unique! They come in different shapes, are sometimes glazed, sometimes unglazed, and can be combined with each other or given as a one-off present.
The cashmere scarf by Oyuna is wonderful! The cashmere is from Mongolia and finely knitted. It feels incredibly soft and gentle on your skin.
