DesignMarketo is the place where you can find truly unique christmas gifts, for hipsters with a conscious who appreciate fresh designs from small and local productions! I had the pleasure to see the real things at Gallery Otras Cosas here in Barcelona, but if you can't find a pop-up store near you, just go online! Here a selection of the coolest and greenest for this season.
