Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty & Clothing

The art of gift giving is beautiful – if it’s done right, it’s a pleasure for the receiver, and a support for the community. So why not skip your plan to order all presents last minute online and have a little spree at local shops, supporting those who are keeping our cities lively and small producers alive. Stil in Berlin’s gift guide wants to lead you to small businesses in our lovely city, and while we already recommended shops to buy food gifts and places to get interior items, this time we’re catering to the lovers of all things beautiful, may it be clothing, accessories or beauty products.
