Up your gift-giving game and present the gnome lovers on your list with a bottle of their favorite drink topped with a delightful handmade gnome. These little Nordic folklore creatures were originally thought to protect the homestead unless they weren’t treated well – in which case, look out because they could become very mischievous.
Nowadays, the gnomes’ pointy hats, round noses and long beards are quickly becoming a holiday decorating phenomenon. Made from old sweaters or felt, these little Scandinavian hooligans will make gift wrapping and staying “gnome” for the holidays fun again. (Gnome pun intended. Ha!)
