I love to go Christmas shopping in other cities and discover small boutiques or concept stores. Finding that exclusive gift or just browsing Christmas decorations brings me so much joy. A small, adorable gift shop that is perfect for Christmas shopping is Atelier Ohlala in Utrecht. In December the shop is transformed into a winter shop with lights, ornaments and creative decorations. Glitter donuts, classic nutcrackers and lots of wanna-haves will make you linger in the shop until you’ll cave and buy something. It’s your address for unique jewelry, gifts, toys, leather goods, pillows, candles, glassware and home accessories. You’ll find brands like Overload Studios, Maileg, Shot of Joy, Les Douzetiques, M&M, Astier de Villatte, Benamor, Stylenoot and Fashionology. In December open 6 days a week and they also have a webshop.
