Design welcomes Christmas: 15 holiday gift ideas for others and for you

The Christmas atmosphere passes through some simulacrum objects, evoking the spirit, the conviviality, or the age-old search for the perfect gift of the holiday season.

There is no holiday or rite of passage that is not celebrated with objects. Christmas and New Year’s Day are no exception, bringing with them a huge set of expectations about how to decorate, embellish, or even simply leave a tangible sign of the advancing time.

Here, we have put together some new items embodying the spirit and flavor of secular Christmas. You will find gold, refractions, newly inaugurated warm hints of red, or small games to be enjoyed in progress until the end of the year. If the Christmas theme continues to fascinate designers, we like to note that the approach that seduces them is often that of irony: a way to downplay the stylistic features of tradition, and to cloak the guilty pleasure of the holiday season with the right amount of light-heartedness.
