When shopping for Gifts this year, Coco Chanel has some time-tested Christmas Advice.
Here she is in her own words:
“Be who you are, not what the world wants you to be.” – Coco Chanel
What does this mean for Christmas?
We believe, she is trying to say that when buying gifts, don’t just buy the first item on somebody’s wishlist.
Instead, try and find (or create) a gift that allows you to inject at least a little of yourself into the gift.
Nowadays, most people can afford the gift you present to them and we have all experienced cases of where we got the size, colour or something else wrong.
It is not that easy to understand exactly what somebody is telling you (as we know from “Chinese Whispers”).
Coco’s advice to this dilemma is to inject a little of yourself, rather than trying (and failing) to be what others are asking for.
Don’t be surprised when this works out well for you and keep in mind another ‘Christmas Advice’ from Coco Chanel:
“If you want to be original, be ready to be copied.” – Coco Chanel
Yes, you may have to accept that others will copy the originality of your gifts in the coming years.
Happy Christmas from All of us here at Pairfum London.
Enjoy selecting gifts with originality from our online boutique.
