KINGDOM OF WOW! SLIPPER

Floris: “My name is Floris van Bommel and I am addicted to slippers. Okay, I’ve said it. Every autumn, but sometimes also in the middle of summer, I surf the entire Internet in search of the perfect slipper. I have really tried everything, expensive and cheap, from the respectable German brands to...

...those big fluffy 100% woollen slippers. During my latest slipper hunt, I ended up at ‘Kingdom of Wow’. A Dutch fair-trade slipper and espadrille brand that produces its goods in Cambodia. After ordering my pair, I came into contact with owner Godie. She asked me how I liked them. I told her about my slipper obsession and that my pair of K.O.W.s came quite close to perfection. Fast forward to now: ta-dááh! A tremendous honour... the ‘Kingdom of Wow for Floris van Bommel’ slipper! I can wholeheartedly recommend them, and that’s no commercial chit-chat ☺. They fit perfectly, they are nice and warm (but not too warm), have a nice fit around the heel, the suede outsole is absolutely heaven, they are even biodegradable, and the makers in Cambodia earn a ‘fair wage’ producing them.”

Wooden puzzle Majestic Wolf

Floris: “Nothing says mindfulness like a jigsaw puzzle at Christmas. And if you’re going to get stuck in, you might as well start with the best. This jigsaw is more like a piece of art. It is made entirely from wood and...

...some pieces are shaped like animals. We also offer real Christmas jigsaws, take a look at the baubles section on our site. You decide the difficulty level in the comfort of your own home by varying the height you drop them from. Merry Christmas!”

Gift set Le Creuset mug red

Floris: “An espresso machine is not welcome in my house. I am 100% filtered-coffee kind of guy. My perfect coffee dream involves American-style scenes: huge mugs and endless refills. The perfect coffee mug should also exude...


...this lavishness. That’s why my kitchen is home to these Le Creuset mugs. Having one of these mugs steaming with coffee right in front of your face, means you are about to dive into a small coffee pond. Great times! I would usually warm my mug under a hot tap first, but that’s a bit outdated now. We have to spend less time in the shower, turn down the thermostat a degree or so, recycle our waste and also: keep our coffees warm with a coffee mug jumper. Drinking coffee and saving the planet at the same time: it’s possible!”

Robot giftbox

Floris: “I am a massive Science Fiction fan, but I prefer the realistic Star Trek angle over fantasy like Star Wars. I regularly lap up all the YouTube videos of my favourite Futurologist Ray Kurzweil, where he talks...


...about ‘computronium’, the ‘technological singularity’ and ‘quantum computers’. Technology is epic. Ray also has some excellent theories about how we will all be humanoids or even become fully digital. HOWEVER! Until we get there, I’ll have to make do with toy robots. To me, robots and puppies are on equal cuteness levels. Because 1 dog is plenty, I just keep buying more robots. This set contains a few as well. Enjoy them before you turn into a robot yourself!''

Gift box 3 robot gadgets | Price: €34,95

Sock Monkey Kit

Floris: “Christmas is of course the perfect moment to look back on the ‘good old days’. My ultimate Christmas dream involves a little bit of personal effort and hey presto, this pair of socks is turned into a cuddly monkey…


...But I think I’ll leave that job to someone else. I suspect that a quick visit to the garage, where I hit myself hard on the thumb with a hammer will give me more Christmas feeling than the struggle that would be involved in turning this pair of socks into anything other than socks. On the other hand, if you are handy with needle and thread, I think I can guarantee that this pair of original ‘Rockford Red heel’ socks will be the key to your ultimate Merry Christmas. Have fun and don’t forget; post me a photograph of the finished product!”

LIMITED EDITION SNEAKER KEY RING

Floris: “I guess I was around 9 years old when I realised that ‘collecting’ was really not my thing. The first thing I did was dump my entire collection of keyrings in the waste bin, and felt completely liberated…

.


...As if I had taken early retirement. No more pressure, no more worries, hello ‘Life of Leisure!’. Despite my early collector’s retirement, with the knowledge I have built up since, I am willing to stake my reputation on saying that this Sterling silver keyring is as good as it gets. It would probably have joined my keyring compass and keyring Smurf with built-in flashlight at the top of my personal list of collectors’ items. I hope you enjoy this limited edition replica of one of our top recent classic sneakers. But … don’t let it be the start of a collection! Simply attach it to your bunch of keys. And live the good life!”

Christmas decoration gift box set 1

Floris: “I have many great Christmas memories. Like the one when I was 7 and somehow used my cat-like reflexes to pull my brother Pepijn’s highchair away from the dining table. The paper tablecloth was on fire thanks to the...


...leaking paraffin stove under the fondue pan. Exactly how Christmas should be, of course. You’re hoping for the perfect evening, and things turn out a little differently every time. I never saw the pan of boiling oil on our table again after our minor house fire. Still, we haven’t banned all Christmas risks from our family: we all love glass Christmas baubles. Plastic ones are banished. Every year, I treat my parents and brothers to a new set of baubles. This Christmas bauble is one from our selection for this year. I did look around for a bauble in the shape of a burning fondue pan, but alas. Merry Christmas and be careful!”

...The first time that I visited the United States during the holiday season, was during the shooting for our winter campaign in Alaska. Rough terrain, meters of snow and real Alaskans that you normally only get to see on Discovery Channel. Outside, it’s -40 degrees, inside, waitresses are dressed in Christmas outfits – with coloured lamps and big, open fireplaces everywhere. The All-American Christmas celebrations don’t get more authentic than that. And that’s why I’m feeling homesick and nostalgic now. Therefore: An All-American Christmas bauble!”
