    Polarn O. Pyret marketing director, Petra, describes her family’s Christmas trip to Malaysian Borneo. She shares some tips and tricks on what to think about before, during and after a trip.   Our adventure is getting closer – we are going to go to Malaysian Borneo with all our family over Christmas and New Year. I now feel the children are old enough, 7 and 9, for such a long journey. We grown-ups are looking forward to lazy days on the beach and exciting excursions into the rain forest. The children are thinking about what will happen on Christmas Eve. Will they get any presents? What kind of Christmas sweets will there be? And how will Granny and Granddad fare back home? And who is …

    The winter season is here and children will need new outerwear. Isn’t it tempting to buy something that the child can grow into? Perhaps even an overall that will last for two seasons? For an overall’s functions to work in the best manner possible, however, the fit needs to be right from the start. Choosing the right overall size for your child: The child’s height is the most important factor when choosing size – measure the child at home or at one of our stores where there is always a measuring stick available. If the child’s height is between two sizes, it is best to choose the larger size. Don’t hesitate to ask for a store employee’s assistance. Our staff can easily ascertain which size …

  6. December 13th is Santa Lucia

    December 13th is St Lucia Day, a time for singing, mulled spiced wine, and saffron buns. Originally a Catholic feast day, Lucia is a special day that is celebrated all around Sweden, especially in schools and nurseries. The day starts with a Lucia procession early in the morning when it is still dark outside. Lucia herself enters the room wearing a long white Lucia dress with a red silk ribbon around her waist and a crown of candles on her head. She is followed by singing flower girls with glitter in their hair, star boys wearing cone hats, and last but not least, mischievous gingerbread men and elves. It is a delightful and much loved tradition with candles and holiday songs that for many people …

    Our Classic Stripes were a real hit this holiday season. Some people even wore them thru the streets of New York City and caused some excitement. See Jamie Grayson aka the Babyguynyc on his way to a holiday photo shoot sporting his Classic Stripe ensemble in poppy, complete with our Elf cap — yes, he squeezed into a kid’s size 9-12 years. The leggings and top thankfully come in adult sizes! When there is a will there is a way!

    It’s rare to get a piece of personalized mail these days, but I will never forget my first Winter Holiday in the US with my husband. Every day our mailbox would overflow with fun festive Christmas cards from friends, family and even just acquaintances. All with beautiful pictures and joyful happy wishes. I was amazed and loved it! The following year I wrote personalized Christmas cards to every single person I knew. However, I felt like something was missing. Soon our beloved dog Mally would join the family and shortly after our beautiful son August. Now I was GAME, I couldn’t wait for November and the Christmas card photo shoot! Truth is- it took me three days to get the photo I was envisioning. Call …
