Irene Hoofs, a.k.a. Bloesem, is the author of the design blogs Bloesem and Bkids. Irene was born and raised in Amsterdam. After roaming the globe she and her family settled down in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. From her home office, which overlooks a bamboo garden, she aspires to bring out-of-the-box daily finds to her readers…with an admitted preference for Dutch design.
When the Etsy team invited me to curate a special gift guide, I immediately thought of my sister. We don’t see each other very often but we are getting together for Christmas this year. There is no way to properly show how much I love, respect and cherish her — but 25 presents are a good start. Here are some ideas for my sister and yours, organized by room.
Here’s to a wonderful family Christmas!
