Three weeks to the day till Christmas and I still haven’t done my shopping, never mind sending out my cards! Time is flying but it’s not too late to scoop up some special gifts to please family and friends here in Switzerland or wherever you plan on spending the 25th. What’s really special about the gift ideas you find here is that with the exception of the adorable San Bernardino dog charm (which is included because it celebrates a delightful Swiss icon), all these lovely items are Swiss made, some closeby in the neighborhood of Geneva and in Vaud canton. I hope this little round-up will take some stress out of your Christmas shopping this year…
