All of us love a
good Romantic Story – especially when it comes to the
season of love. No, it is not Valentine’s. It is the day
Christians celebrate the love that was shown to us two
thousand years ago. It is this thought that brought us
to add a little romance to our range of gifts for this
This year, our inspiration comes from the Romantic
Road; also known as the Romantisch Straße in
Germany. Starts in Wurzburg and ends in Fussen on the
Austrian border, the journey passes many medieval towns
as old as the Christmas love story, along the Tauber
Valley, with its fairy tale castles, patchwork of cobble
stone streets, picturesque landscape, timber frame
houses and old fashion market places. The romantic road
is also renowned for its lively Christmas market places
that are open throughout the year especially in towns
like Rothenburg ob der Tauber. These are the places
where one can spot most of the new Christmas gifting and
decoration trends in Germany.
Though not originating in Germany, Christmas romance
is akin to a romantic passage. The first encounter for a
believer is always magical. We fall in love just like in
a fairy tale story, with its adventures, marvels and
wonders, and larger than life hero and heroin. The
similarity of these journeys is that both journeys are
full of miracles, one occurs in the believers’ hearts;
and the other when the journey starts.
Take a look through the range of gifts to discover
patterns, materials, ornaments and food traditionally
found in many of these alluring German medieval
treasures. Wish upon a star that some of these gifts
will bring miracles to their hearts; your loved ones and
Christmas, after all, is a love story through and
through. Make your recipients
feel the magic too.
Merry Christmas or “Fröhliche Weihnachten” as
they say in German!
