Christmas shopping

Again this time of the year! And some hardcore shopping to do for many. I have to say I am more of a selective shopper and never buy something because I have to. Another key detail, expensive doesn’t mean better.

Having said that, I never set foot in a shopping centre. I’d rather walk around the streets, enjoy a coffee and people watch. If it happens that I find the right present, great news. But I come back home empty handed many many times.

So, Hunt for Design has decided to highlight one or two suggestions for a few basic categories. There are plenty more, but nowadays online shopping saves lives throughout the planet for late buyers.
