This Christmas season is unique, 2020 is a special year in everything, including the end of the year holidays. This means gifting is also unique, it has to symbolize all the love we could not give to our families since they were far away maybe? Or the fact that we might not be able to see them for this season?
Whichever is your situation, a message has been clear this year #supportyourlocals is a MUST and we should buy local this year to support the small businesses in our city. That is why I am bringing you more than 10 ideas to buy Swiss Christmas gifts for less than 100 CHF!!!
We also have a link to Swiss Christmas Gifts for more than 100CHF
With their boutique in Carouge SEP Jordan has revolutionized the meaning of a Social Enterprise Project (SEP). They are a fashion & lifestyle brand with a high impact on social, they work with high skilled artists and craftswomen that are refugees in the Jerash “Gaza” Camp in Jordan.
Their pieces are stunning, and the perfect Christmas Gift with meaning you can give to a beloved one. My ultimate favorites are the colorful keffiyeh, I own one and use it in every trip (cold or hot) since it is a versatile piece that stands out and is very fashion forward with positive social impact.

Sekoya – offer health this year.
2020 made us realize how important is our physical (and mental) health in order to overcome stressful situations and fight this virus. When I was thinking of what I would love to be offered is HEALTH! But how can we do this? Then I thought of all the vitamins and food supplements we can take to increase of immune system, our gut and overall health.
I loved Sekoya, since they have put together little packs according to needs and cures, for example I am a big fan of the Winter Cure (135.59) with Omega 3, Acérola + & Bourrache +.
If this year you are not sure what to offer, offer health either for you of your beloved ones! I love that you can search by “need” too, like joints, memory, natural defenses or vitality!

Cheese will always be a good option! And if you have a relative or friend that has never done a fondue, a fondue set is always a nice idea! I love the idea of offering something that people can reuse and bring joy and special moments.
A fondue set is more practical compared to a raclette machine, because in case the person moves around the globe, they can still use it!

Kuhnrikon 139 CHF – little bit more expensive, but more resistant

What can make you happier than chocolate? Mmmm in my case NADA! It is my guilty pleasure and my go-to snack. I now try to go to darker since it is healthier! Here are some of my favorite chocolate places in Geneva and Switzerland:
Favarger – Geneva based & you can find the Nougalines even at the Coop (more or less 15CHF)
Läderach – Always with new creations and delicious chocolate. It is the only place where I eat white chocolate. The one that you break and has pistachios …. TDF!
Teuscher – OMG these are truly amazing chocolates, I had the fortune to receive a massive box for when my daughter was born and … I fell in LOVE. WOW
Du Rhône Chocolatier – delicious chocolates made in Geneva. I love their hot chocolate in their shop, but the small ones for take-away are also a delight!
Max Chocolatier – I have dreams about this chocolate, the Bar Java 64% is really stunning! They do not have a shop in Geneva, but you can order online.
