Oscar Wilde once quipped that he was a man of simple tastes, he was merely satisfied with the best of everything. Our rules for buying presents for such individuals go a little something like this: research their interests, their favourite colours, the people and places they follow online. Next, think carefully about their routines and preferences. Are they a morning or an evening person? An introvert or extrovert?
One of our favourite lighting solutions for night owls are portable table lamps. Often described as contemporary candles, they are freed from the shackles of cables in order to create gorgeous light effects indoors or out. Of all the designs we’ve tried of late, none is quite so pretty or as powerful as Contardi’s Ongo Battery Lamp. So confident are we that it’ll make someone’s Christmas that we’ll be giving one away to a lucky subscriber this winter. Head over to our Instagram for more.
