Every year again we are frightened by Christmas with his arrival. What, you ready again? Shockingly dead. No paper, zero gifts and not a single card written yet. Only the tasty biscuits of mummy we have already eaten before the 4th Advent. Not that I want to spread the hectic here, but whoever broods seven days before Christmas Eve without any ideas, will now be helped here to a timely package. On our Christmas tours - yes, we are the shopping enthusiasts this year, which is due to the fact that all gifts wanted to be sent to the world and there is the post with its deadlines merciless, but then also punctual - we liked one or the other. If you run away now, you won't only find what you're looking for here at InsideFFM, but you'll also prove to be original and imaginative and give local colour.
• Giving makes you happy. Even happier makes it possible to combine the pleasant with the "amusing". That's why your brother, father or best friend is happy about a stylish headgear with the Frankfurt logo. Seen at Kaufhof.
• Nobody can get past Gries Soß‘. If you haven't been able to warm up like us - yes, it's out now - this year's highlight at „Whisky Spirits is sure to convince you!" in Sachsenhausen: Mixed with the trend drink Gin it becomes a culinary surprise dinner!
• Who strolls now again over the Christmas market, that should absolutely seize! And that's by the cups. The current model shows Frankfurt museums from Städel to the Film Museum and the Goethe House. For 2.50 euros, to give away as a present or to commemorate the holidays of the whole year.
• Wherever we are at art, a visit to one of Frankfurt's numerous museum shops is always worthwhile: from colourful leather wallets to parlour games and art prints, you'll find everything your heart desires.
At this point I wish all Frankfurt tip - and InsideFFM readers/inside a happy Christmas time as well as a healthy and successful new year! I thank you for the numerous comments and suggestions and hope to continue lively exchange 2016.
