With Phase 3 still yet to be announced, we say let us make the best of this year-end and enjoy the festivities as it always should be- filled with love and content (and gifts!). With a list of presents best enjoyed at home, let Fairmarch help you and your loved ones recreate Hygge, as what they call it in Danish, a sense of warmth and comfort this Christmas.

Hands down the year of quiet reflecting moments, why not get a journal to jot those precious thoughts down? Hand bounded with love by the craftsmen and women with physical disabilities at Society for the Physically Disabled, these limited-edition journals are hugged so gently by a Japanese fabric sleeve, allowing your friend with that travel itch to relive a little Nihon adventure.
Iron Nori – Honey Baked Ham, $69
What is a mini party (remember, 5 guests only! Santa’s watching) without some succulent, juicy, mouth-watering honey baked ham? If that is not tempting enough, all meals purchased will support employment and the livelihood of Iron Nori’s special needs employees. Good ham and good karma? Why not!
