Select Shopping | Because she’s worth it
Whether it’s for your wife, daughter, or the notoriously difficult female in-laws, we’ve got you covered!
While young Danes might love stopping off at hipster cafes to get their cappuccino fix, Grandma Birgithe might not think it’s as practical. Get some siblings and cousins together and give Granny her very own easy-to-use Nespresso machine from the Nespresso Boutique on Kristen Bernikows Gade, and she can make all kinds of coffee in the comfort of her own home!
Every woman loves cosmetics, and come Christmas season it’s primetime for those exclusive gift boxes that come wrap-ready and colour co-ordinated in beautiful boxes, usually with a cosmetics bag and some extra products included in the price. Try a ‘Fatal Blacks Mascara’ giftbox from Helena Rubenstein for 204kr, or maybe a Clarins Body Care Package for 212kr, both from Magasin.
If there’s one thing mothers love (especially around the dark Danish Christmas) it’s hygge-time with her family – and what better way to spend it than with a bunch of candles lit around the house? Illums Bolighus on Strøget has a huge range of candlesticks and candleholders, from the classic but costly Griffinrandorff-designed candlestick in brass from Georg Jensen (699kr), to the small glass holders from Iitala (from 99kr), which can be found in every colour of the rainbow.
Lingerie for the woman in your life is not only a gift for her, but for you too! If you want to go (very) upscale, Agent Provocateur on Pilestræde 6 is the end-all of luxurious lingerie, and they have a ‘Gentlemen’s Buying Guide’ on their homepage for those feeling a bit lost (www.agentprovocateur.com). Otherwise, Elle Macpherson Intimates are a great alternative with a more wallet-friendly price tag, and can be found at Magasin, Illum, Fogal and Anne Marie Sax.
If you’re lucky to have a daughter still young enough to love Disney movies, why not get her this year’s Brave on DVD – which InOut gave five stars. You can find it at the Disney Store at Amagertorv 8 on Strøget, along with an unimaginable array of Disney loot to please any young princess. If she’s outgrown the Disney stage, why not get her tickets to see some real-life pop princesses, with both Lana Del Ray and Marina and the Diamonds holding concerts in Copenhagen come April? Tickets can be bought at www.billetlugen.dk.
