10 Christmas Gift Ideas for your Friends and Family

It has already begun to look a lot like Christmas in Norway. As the outdoor weather gets chilly, Christmas festivities feels like warmth. It’s a festival of colourful lights, home gatherings, decorations, games, delicious food, and the fun of gifting. Yes, gifts! If you are still wracking your brain over what to get your friends, family, or colleagues, then get a little bit of inspiration from our bestselling Christmas gifts.

At Memories from Norway, we believe that the Christmas gifts are simply to show that you care and with our huge selection of unique Christmas gifts, you can’t really go wrong.

Mugs and Thermoses

Chilly winters are here and who doesn’t like a cup of hot chocolate in this festive season! Our first suggestion is a conscious Christmas gift that makes you produce less waste. Our bestseller thermos and drinking mugs are made of metal and keep your drink hot or cold for hours. They are insulated and come in different designs with a stylish look.

Our mugs and thermoses are a great companion whether you are on a long road trip or just heading out for a day full of adventure. Bring some delicious, piping-hot beverage or a chilled cold brew with you and enjoy it without a worry of it being spilled.

Christmas Cards

To many, sending a Christmas card is an old-fashioned, outdated way of keeping in touch with friends and family. Very few know that writing cards is an enriching experience and a great way to preserve memories (which is what we're all about here!). The range of greeting cards on our website are crafted with famous Norwegian landscapes and paintings.

Fill the Christmas cards with personalised messages and invite your loved ones to visit this gem of a country by gifting them cards this Christmas. You can also get crafty and make the Christmas cards extra meaningful by pasting photographs in them.

Wool Figures/Soft Toys

Do not forget the little munchkins while researching for a Christmas present. Make them super happy by getting an adorable stuffed animal soft toy. You can even gift them wool figures available at our website and inspired by Norwegian households, from prime ministers to celebrity chefs. They make up for a charming Christmas décor, that can even be hung on the Christmas trees.

These soft toys and wool figures are squishy and can be your kids’ timeless buddies and sleeping companions. These are surely a no-fail cheat code to win their hearts.

Scented Candles

Christmas is a festival of colourful lights. So, lighting a candle or two, that also happens to be scented, is a win-win! Scented candles add quite a bit of style to the décor in addition to the festive glow. Memories from Norway’s luxe aroma collection comes in different scents that are exquisite and have a calming effect. They bring the Swedish and Norwegian nature home to you and your family, from brands such as Ljos and Torplyktan.

This year, share your Christmas greetings with a touch of serene fragrance and you will sure be complimented for such a thoughtful gift.


If you are planning a special gift for your girlfriend, fiancé, wife, or mother, then this is the right time you visit the jewellery section at our website. There’s nothing like too much jewellery – all women agree to it. We have come up with an extensive range of jewellery as Christmas gifts, that comprises bracelets, earrings, rings, and necklaces.

Our jewellery collection includes everything from gold plated, silver plated, diamonds, to pearls – all exquisitely made and designed with a Nordic touch.

Mittens and Wrist warmers

Hand warmers come in a variety of forms like heated or battery operated. But nothing can keep you warm in uncomfortably cold winter like a nicely knitted mitten and a wrist warmer. These are a convenient way to stay warm during any outdoor activity, from hiking to skiing.

So, this Christmas, gift warmth to your loved ones by giving them a set of cosy hand-warmers made of 100% Norwegian wool. They are available in several colours on Memories from Norway.

Hats and Gloves

Hats never go out of fashion. Whether it’s a beanie, baseball hat, headwrap, or a cap, hats are adorable. They save from scorching sun in summers and protect from intense cold in winters. Also, during Christmas time, when everyone’s busy with chores, hats give them a day off from styling their hair. It thus makes for a perfect Christmas gift.

Hats and gloves are also an easy gift option as you don’t need to find the exact size of the person you are gifting it to. So, without any guesswork, gift a hat or a glove as a Christmas present from the extensive collection on our website.


Warm Scarves

Like hats and gloves, scarves also make up for a neutral Christmas present, where you need not bother about sizes. Scarf is one apparel with many purposes, like it can be used to create warmth, protect from sun, or enhance an outfit’s style statement.

Memories from Norway has a stock of contemporary scarves serving the dual purpose of being practical as well as stylish. They can be worn in endless ways and make for an excellent Christmas gift that will last.

Classy Sweaters

Sweaters have always been a staple Christmas gift. At the dawn of the winter season, we start curating new ensembles surrounding sweaters. From classic stripes to versatile basics like crewnecks and turtlenecks, sweaters are a unanimous prompt across designer collections. 

Whether you are looking for Scandinavian sweaters in a specific style or high-tech knitted sweater without seams to gift this Christmas, look no further and browse Memories from Norway’s collection.

Wallets and Card Holders

Wallets and card holders make up for a very meaningful and functional Christmas gift. They are affordable gift options and are an important accessory for both men and women. With digital payments, everyone has many cards to keep in their wallet, hence a separate card holder along with the wallet is a thoughtful gift.

Wallets and card holders on our website are classy, well-constructed, and use the most premium material.


There you are! We hope we saved your time and provided you good ideas for Christmas gifting. Take some inspiration from this list and find your friends and family the best Christmas gift that levels up the festive feel.
