Christmas Gifting Deutsche Style

Three years ago I wrote an article with the same title about the same favourite German store in the city - European Speciality's Importers (Read 2010 Christmas Gifting Deutsche Syle). This store continues to deliver on a lovely Christmas experience year after year.

At Christmas, one whole section of the store opens up and becomes a German Christmas wonderland with chocolates, cookies, marzipan, and lots and lots of Stollen - all excellent quality imports directly from Germany.

For those who grew up with advent calendars for Christmas, the most authentic old fashioned advent calendars are found here.

And if Christmas stresses you out, make sure you pick up a Nerven-Schlafen Tee  - a German natural herbal tea that works as a sleeping and anti anxiety pill in one sip.

Finally, if you are too lazy to go there, European Speciality Importers is now online - check it out at
