Berlin xmas market and gift ideas2.12.13
Christmas- the most beautiful time during the year! I had the pleasure to spend my weekend with a friend in Berlin, during the day sitting in a congress room in the noble Hotel Pullmann listening to dentists about how to manage difficult cases
concerning prosthetics, in the pauses eating a lot of delicious food, and during the night to enjoy Berlin`s gorgeous, but overfilled, xmas market at the Gandarmenmarkt.
For me it was a premiere to go to one xmas market in Berlin. This one has three entries and you are just 1€ away from entering it ;)
As usual, you can find different stands where you can buy food like Hot Dogs, fruits with chocolate coating, roasted almonds, famous Christmas stollen, delicious cream bread fresh from the ofen- one can get crazy over all those tempting smells!
And of course you can buy your latest xmas presents like beautiful handmade wooden decorations at "Käthes Weihnachtszauber" or thousands of other tents selling their greatest goods from juwellery, caps, leather gloves and bags to children`s toys, candles, joss sticks, books and music cds.
And of course strolling through the xmas market means always drinking at least one cup of hot and spicy mulled wine, the "Glühwein".
So pretty soon we will have the 24th of December- maybe even white Christmas ;)
To keep you guys from stressing over xmas gifts what where to buy, I will present you some ideas.
At Fancy shop (http://fancy.com/shop) one can search though different categories one is interested in, and can find really, as its name is, fancy stuff ;)
"People are 'Fancy-ing' what they like, forming communities around these products or experiences, and now we allow merchants and brands to come in and fill that interest and demand in real-time, which no one is doing," says founder Joseph Einhorn. "Rather than go to Amazon or Google and searching for stuff I intend to buy, in the future in the commerce game, I think getting hotel destinations, finding cool products, or discovering fashion items will be done through the people I admire and trust. From a consumer perspective, I'm able to go to this website, where I'm finding out about the coolest stuff in the world, and instead of clicking, signing up, and giving my address and contact info to a million different websites, I am able to shop right inside, whether it's on the website or the iPad, iPhone, or Android app, and go all the way through to checkout in an integrated experience."
