Who said that only the little ones could write to Santa Claus? There is no age to dream about a table set for New Year's Eve, to marvel at the piles of gifts under the tree or to dress in your best to celebrate the stroke of midnight! Successful parties are both the culmination of the past year and the herald of the year to come, the magic of the present moment and the excitement of new adventures, the perfect time to slow down but also to seek adventure and above all, to savour the happiness of being together.
What if this year, you gifted a magical holiday? Find last-minute inspiration in Le Collectionist's editorial team's Christmas list, filled with unforgettable moments to give (or ask for), and the most beautiful destinations and homes to celebrate the holiday season!
If Christmas and the New Year fill us with joy, it is because when the month of December comes, everything slows down and picks up pace at the same time. There are those who run to the department stores at the last minute to find the perfect gift, and the more organised who, with a glass of mulled wine in hand, watch the latecomers fidget with a smile. There are those who host a pastry workshop with the children and those who take the opportunity to curl up on the sofa in the living room, their nose in a good book. At Le Collectionist, there are those who prefer the mountains and those who want to spend their holidays in the sun.
