Still looking for the perfect gift? Take a trip down Aachener Strasse and visit the Flying Fawn.
From cute little lamps, funky stationery, fancy kitchen utensils, to all kinds of lovely homewares, Flying Fawn has pretty much everything you don’t really need, but would love to have. You’re sure to find a gift to suit that certain someone in your life.
Here’s some of our favorite finds:
This sparkly little bag is perfect for make-up, pens, bits-&-bobs, and can double as a clutch bag when you’re out on the town.
Got a friend or partner who is always out on his bike – no matter what the weather? This practical, all-weather, smartphone cover will ensure his handy stays dry – and usable – even when he’s off the beaten track.
For the kids
This unicorn shaped soft toy can be turned inside out into a rainbow colored neck cushion – double the fun and twice the cuteness.
There are loads of novelty Christmas decorations at Flying Fawn – we particularly liked this glittery blue whale for an extra bit of kitsch on our Christmas tree.
