Congratulations, you made it! 2021 has been a year full of challenges, and it is time to treat yo’self! Here at GMD, we are firm Santa Claus believers, so this year, we have boldly decided to blog our wishlist in the hope of getting his attention.

These are the items our team would like to get this Christmas: 


Bamboo bar tool set (and to learn to make drinks) – Adina.

A vintage-inspired bar tool set is made for display. Tools hang upside down from a shiny nickel-finished stand with bamboo detailing. Stainless steel strainer, bottle opener, stirring spoon and jigger are handled with natural bamboo, burnt for a unique finish that varies from piece to piece. Proudly made in India. 


OneWheel – Pablo

OneWheel is an electric monowheel scooter that allows you to carve the planet earth in ways you never thought possible. It’s packed with technology that actively helps to keep you balanced. You don’t have to be a pro surfer or circus performer to figure it out.


Karaoke Microphone – Pablo

With a portable dull polish handle, the BONAOK microphone is very easy to hold. Designed with a built-in Bluetooth model, it can be used as speaker, player and recorder and it’s compatible with various singing apps, great for singing along with karaoke.


Lululemon Arise Reversible Yoga Mat– Laura

Designed to be used in hot yoga, this mat is reversible, extra cushiony and is treated with an antimicrobial additive. The mat is made with sustainably sourced natural rubber material and is FSC™ (Forest Stewardship Council™) certified to support the protection of forest ecosystems and the people, plants, and animals that inhabit them. Namaste.


Dieter Rams: Ten Principles of Good Design – Tyler

This book dives into legendary industrial designer Dieter Rams’ 10 principles of good design through the lens of his own work. It offers a fairly comprehensive look at Rams’ career designing products for Braun and Vitsoe where he helped to shape the language of design. Alternatively, if you are feeling extra flush this year the comprehensive Less and More: The Design Ethos of Dieter Rams is a great gift for the design lover in your life.


Snowshoe at Vancouver’s North Pole – Helen

This starts atop the skyride at the Peak of Christmas on Grouse Mountain, where there’s Santa’s workshop, light walk and a real reindeer habitat. It traverses through Munday Alpine Snowshoe Park and the snowshoe grind. Private snowshoe fondue or fitness snowshoe tours are available for fun with friends and family. If you’re feeling more adventurous, there’s Thunderbird Ridge for an out and back day on the trails.


Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set – Troy

An all-new, complete 35th anniversary hardcover box set of one of the most acclaimed and influential comics of all time, with the original Japanese art and right-to-left reading format for the first time! The science fiction epic that changed anime and manga forever is presented in six beautiful hardcover volumes, plus the hardcover Akira Club art book and an exclusive patch with the iconic pill design. For slightly lighter reading you can also check out The Incal which revolves around John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate dystopian world, who finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artifact called “The Incal”.


Apple Mac Keyboard – Derek

Visa approval for my father so he can visit me next year : ) – Adriano
