People often ask me where to find viking hats when they come to Denmark in order to take them back to their countries and gift them to their friends. However, I think it’s better to give something a bit more authentic, as in something you actually see someone in Denmark wear on a day to day basis and after a year here, I haven’t seen one person wear a viking hat
I’ve been doing some back to school shopping for my first born (now six!) recently and have been enjoying the sales on all the Danish kids websites. I’ve also noticed that it has taken me a year to stop shopping on US sites and instead shop soley on Scandinavian (or Europe wide) sites (probably because I’ve figured that while the cost is higher: so is the quality!)
For those of you wanting to dress your child like a Dane or buy authentic Danish/Scandinavian brands to send back to kids/friends in your own countries, here are four of my favourites!
Instead of wearing a viking hat: wear one on your t-shirt
These adorable adorable backpacks are made to last – a perfect gift for a school starter
This is the brand for all the cool kids (they make the best cotton shorts for boys ever)
And – practically every nursing mother in this country owns something from here
