A London design gift idea

A romantic week-end in London, miles of lovely walks, a musical followed by a pub crawl, a dozen or so postcards sent to make friends jealous, a suitcase overfilled with London souvenirs, a few vintage dresses, lovely chutneys from the Borough Market, the obligatory bag or tea caddy from Harrod’s…

Damned, you really wanted to bring something back for your best friend who soooooooo loves London.

Ah, but your bank accound has considerably gone down in the last few days.

Why not stop at the Japanese chian Muji and get this City in a bag kit? Ideal for fashionistas, design lovers, kids, Xmas stockings and even your shelves.

Light, does not take much space and costs a mere £5.95. I have offered so many of those I actually should buy Muji actions -  they always prove a hit.

Also exists as Paris, barcelona, New-York and Italy sets.


My two favourite addresses for Muji in London (more on the website):
- les than a minute walk from Tottenham Court Rd tube station (perfect occasion to see its fab murals then enjoy the Phoenix secret garden)
- In Selfridge’s basement

    Oui, ils sont sympas ces condenses de ville en bois: j’avais acheté Paris il y a longtemps et Poupi joue toujours avec.
    Bonne idée celui de Londres en souvenir.

    Barbara: les jouets en bois amenent un toucher formidable… Les Parisiennes, ayant acces a Muji, connaitront sans doute cette serie. Elle reste craquante et une excellente alternative aux sempiternels mugs!

    Nath: il s’agit du Royal Albert Hall, ou l’on jour beaucoup de musique classique…

    Elisa: Bonnes semaine de Paques, tu vas revenir avec des dizaines de post et des milliers de photos… Sans parler des etoiles dans le regard! Bises!

  • Superbe idée dans le style que j’affectionne particulièrement, merci !
