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.

Festive table

Inspired by classical music and ballet, Søstrene’s collections have a running theme of harmony and joy which is embodied both in their designs and their pricing. Now with their final drop of the year, the chain has released their New Year’s collection filled with glittery gifts and festive table settings to get you in the party mood. Available in stores from November 21.
