Norlii Box December 2021: Scandinavian Christmas

Scandinavian Christmas traditions speak to me. There’s a lot of baking, a lot of candles, and elves leave little presents in your boots (as long as you keep them well fed ๐Ÿ˜‰). So a box celebrating Christmas Scandi-style speaks to me in a BIG way. And it happens to be the theme of December’s nordic home and lifestyle box,ย Norlii Box. ๐Ÿ™Œ It’s about discovering some new traditions and making them your own with a collection of festive Scandinavian goods to get you started.
