For your Christmas shopping pleasure:
Ethical and aesthetic gifts.To help you find the perfect gift this season, we asked Aiayu founder Maria Høgh Heilmann what she is considering for the important people in her life.

To me the holidays are spending time with my loved ones, catching up and reflecting over the year gone by. Gifts are just a small part of it – but I do put a lot of thought into it. The gifts should be made without endangering the planet, it should be something that will light up the eyes of my loved ones and something they can enjoy having for a long time.

Aiayu gifts come in a reusable organic totebag – you can tie a ribbon and place them under the tree just the way they are, without using plastic or paper wrapping.



This may not feature on most men’s wish list – but I know from experience that when he receives it he will not want to get out of it. It is the most relaxing outfit for the holidays. When lighter days arise again, the shirt fits a pair of blue jeans quite well and the pants will be great for a relaxing summer outfit. It is made in yarn dyed navy and black stripes and comes in a matching gym bag. 100% organic cotton made in certified factories using only solar energy.

I plan to give this scarf to my best girlfriend and to my best male friend. It works for both and is a great alternative to heavy scarfs. It is warm but so soft that you almost forget you have it on.

The scarf is from Nepal where it’s been woven by hand using traditional Nepalese techniques.

This Christmas I will give my mother the HELEN clutch. It will be her second, but one can always use one more Helen. It’s a must-have and can hold everything from pencils & pens or makeup and jewelry for an evening out.

The HELENS have been in our collection for more than 10 years and come in numerous solid and mixed colors. The clutch is handknitted in Bolivia, where only the very skilled knitters master this special bobbly technique that is so  characteristic for the style. HELEN is marked with the knitter’s initials, as a special greeting all the way from Bolivia to you.
