THE GIFT OF A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP

Our favourite linen brand, Sömn, has you covered for luxurious gifts to get your significant other or a close loved one. Thick enough to stay warm this winter and thin enough to keep you cool in the summer, Sömn’s linen sheets are perfect for gifting this Christmas and lasting yearlong.
"One of the benefits of sleeping on linen is that it will naturally regulate your body temperature and wick away moisture. Linen has a neutral PH balance, is hypoallergenic, and bacteria resistant. This makes it comfortable against the skin. The woven structure of pure linen bedding allows air to pass through easily, making the fabric incredibly breathable. Combine this with the ability to wick away moisture while remaining dry to the touch, this means greater relaxation and better sleep for you."

THE GIFT OF WELLNESS

Elegantly designed and beneficial to your health, this is the perfect gift for someone who is looking to renew and purify their health in the coming year. Acera Liven Tumblers are especially known for making its content taste purified and cleaner taste.
"In every ceramic piece, the delicacy of the hand-carved details and exceptional artistry add to its functional and artistic values. Glazed with valuable white crystal tourmaline as part of its patented manufacturer process, products in the LIVEN Series utilizes a far range infrared (FIR) technology pioneered by ACERA. When applied to crystalized tourmaline, that mineral constantly releases the same healthful negative ions you breathe in near a waterfall or after a spring rain. Liquids in tourmaline become softer and more favorable as they acquire an alkaline character that promotes a healthier lifestyle."
Looking for something that would gift well along with the Tumbler? The array of organic and natural flavours offered by Kusmi Tea and the Wolf Tea Gift Box Set are stellar, and the tourmaline coating of the Acera Tumbler will help bolster the tea’s fragrant flavours.
