Heidar Logi's gift guide
Heidar Logi uses most of his time travelling around the Icelandic coasts to battle the Atlantic sea with his surfboard, and while he's not surfing, he practices yoga. Heidar is a huge fan of Christmas and loves making his presents by hand.
What is an essential Christmas tradition?
"I always make Christmas presents by hand. It's actually one of the things I enjoy the most about Christmas. I've done it for a couple of years now and it's something that I think I'll never stop doing. I realized, that when I step out of my daily routine and do something unusual like this, I learn something new and that's when I'm at my best. Frankly, it's something that I don't do often enough. However, when I finally give myself the time during Christmas, I always love it."
What is the best thing about Christmas?
"The best thing about Christmas is when I've finished making and delivering all the presents, I can feel that I completely relax. That's when I'm ready to fully take in the Christmas spirit and enjoy being with my family in peace and quiet."
Which 66°North product do you use the most?
"My most used 66°North garment is the Bylur wool sweater. I use this sweater for almost everything, in everyday life but also as a mid-layer for more extreme conditions, for example for glacier trips. Also, I bring my Jokla Parka with me everywhere I go, whether I'm commuting out in the freezing cold, warming up after a surfing session or simply exploring the outdoors and want to make sure I'll be warm. Jokla Parka is my go-to parka."
Have you spent Christmas at an exotic destination?
"Actually, no. I'm such a huge fan of Christmas that I wouldn't want to miss all the small traditions such as; dining with your whole family and spending hours opening the gifts afterward. In my opinion, the more people gathered, the better."
