Finally ready for some festive prep? Check out the Søstrene Grene Christmas drop.


While Søstrene’s first Christmas drop landed on shelves in late October, perhaps this side of Halloween the festive season might be slightly more palatable. With a snowy forecast on the horizon and Christmas lights ready for illumination, you may be just about ready for some holiday prep now, which is right on time for the Scandinavian brand’s final festive collection.
