Everything in my Winter 2016 Norsebox! This month featured all items from Scandi design house FERM LIVING.

Ferm Living Hexagon Bottle Opener ($40) A stylish and functional gift, perfect for the holidays! Christmas is just around the corner and I’m sure this bottle opener is going to be used a lot at home.

The bottle opener is made of solid brass with matte polish. How sleek!

If you need to clean it, all you have to do is to wipe it with a damp cloth. I love how this is a functional but sculptural piece. Plus it looks fantastic atop my walnut console table with rubbed brass knobs!

Ferm Living Cocktail Napkins ($8) – An instant holiday touch to any table you will be setting for this season’s celebrations. Each package contains 20 napkins. Since I can get a similar pack at IKEA for a couple bucks, I thought this was a little overpriced, but I did like the spatter/mottle holiday design in gold. Sometimes you just have to pay for design!

Ferm Living Outline Trivet ($30) This trivet will be useful when we serve warm pots on the dinner table for Christmas and New Year (and all year round too!).

Ferm Living Canvass Oven Mitt ($24) Simple yet practical! We’re glad to receive an oven mitt which has a separate thumb which ensures a good grip.

These items come with tags that indicate where they were made.

This trivet is made of smoked oak veneer. It’s absolutely gorgeous, I love the design!

It was also laser cut to create a stand-out design. Look at how precise the cuts are! The juxtaposition of filled and open spaces really make this piece.

This mitt is made of 100% organic cotton, as well as polyester padding and removable leather detail.

Don’t forget to remove leather before washing! My husband cannot get enough potholders, ever, so this was also welcomed.

All of the items fit well with the theme and it’s just great to receive a box where all of the items are not just good looking but useful too. I really loved this edition of Norsebox and enjoyed all the items, but I do have a repeated criticism – this subscription represents itself as moving around the home, and I think this is the third box of kitchen items. I would really like to see them move on!
