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 20 ideas to buy Swiss Christmas gifts!!!

Sep Jordan.

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.

Oona Caviar.

With a lot of passion, patience and care, something unique was created – Oona caviar is the first and only Swiss caviar from sturgeons that grew up in Swiss mountain spring water. According to the philosophy of the production facility, the  Tropenhaus Frutigen , and based on the use of the Lötschberg mountain spring water, the first Swiss caviar is sustainably produced and processed in the finest handcraft.  

As one of the few caviar producers who do without the additive borax, we produce caviar with a filigree skin, a pleasantly delicate consistency and a fine enamel. Only in this way can its nutty aroma and the slight hint of young moss develop optimally. Oona caviar is only refined with pure salt, because sustainability, purity and the highlighting of the finest taste nuances are in the foreground. Oona caviar is characterized by its unmistakable character. 

Shop directly at Oona website

Oona Caviar N ° 103  traditionnel – 50 grm – 125 CHF
