The Danish screenwriter recommends one-of-a-kind, sustainably-made gifts from a few of her favorite Scandinavian designers and brands.
These beautiful kitten heels from Ugo Paulon are made from repurposed vintage shoes that the designer finds on eBay — so cool. She overdyes the fabrics to achieve her own unique colors and prints. $471
For the design-obsessed, I love these footstools by the Copenhagen-based architecture duo Rose Hermansen and Caroline Sillesen, of Atelier Axo. They are part of a series of pieces from the atelier that embraces the importance of slowing down — something everyone could benefit from, especially this time of year.

A Treat For Your Skin
It sounds cliché, but I believe that good skincare is food for the soul, and this Afro-Scandinavian family brand takes that motto to the next level. Their products are sourced from local communities in Uganda and Kenya and packaged in Denmark. The bergamot and ylang ylang body butter smells divine and is perfect for parched skin during winter. $73
I am deeply in love with everything Louise Lynch Bjerregaard makes, but this patchwork sweater tops my wish list. The Danish designer uses recycled fabrics and yarns for her collections, and her knits are all handcrafted and one-of-a-kind. €800
