stilinberlin christmas guide

For some of you this little list might come way too late. For others, like myself, who just started to think about Christmas gifts this week, it might be a lot of help. Of course, there are loads of other options to get the perfect gift, it just happens that these are my favorits, the ones I rely on. Hope they’ll help you as much as they helped me. Have a merry holiday!

    Very good guide, it’ll hopefully help me a lot since I didn’t buy ANY christmas present yet. To my mind, the best place to buy books in Berlin is Dussmann, I especially adore the new english book shop :)
