Every year we run a great competition:
Take one basic Gingerbread house kit from ANNA’S and pimp it up to the best of your abilities. Think outside the box: be creative, be crazy, be super attentive to detail. Whatever is your strong side, put that into the little house.
When you are done, send us a picture of our house and we will put the best ones up on Instagram and Facebook and the blog during December.
We have four categories:
Adult – Beautiful: This is the main award. The most beautiful house you can make from a very basic kit of gingerbread house.
Adult – Super Creative. This is the crazy house – like the house eaten by dragons, murder scenes, brothels, discos – whatever you can do to pimp up your house to silly standards with great use of imagination.
Child – up to 7 years old. It’s okay that you Mum and Dad help out, but here we do want to see real kids efforts. We know what seven year olds can do with a ginger bread kit – we want to see kids being allowed to unleash creativity. It’s fine to add Lego men and other toys to the mix or make a gingerbread house for your favourite dolls.
Young person 8-16 – We want to see your imagination run wild here. Make the house your own.

Young person 8-16 prize: Sweeties. And more Sweeties. So many sweeties your Mum will be quite annoyed with us all the way through till January, probably.
- All entries MUST be made from a basic Gingerbread House kit. We stock the one from Anna’s, which is the preferred one, but if you use the IKEA version that is also fine (they are similar in shape and size). Basically, the basic shape of the house must be the same so we can see just how creative you can be with a pre-fab kit. Any entries not made from the similar in size and shape to the Ikea and Anna’s kit will not be accepted, sorry.
- When you submit photos, you need to state what category you are entering into.
- Only one entry per person

WIN a signed copy of Wolf Winter by Cecilia Ekback
Cecilia Ekback’s book Wolf Winter has been getting a lot of press since it was published – and rightly so: It’s a beautiful novel.
Buy the book here
Swedish Lapland, 1717. Maija, her husband Paavo and her daughters Frederika and Dorotea arrive from their native Finland, hoping to forget the traumas of their past and put down new roots in this harsh but beautiful land. Above them looms Blackåsen, a mountain whose foreboding presence looms over the valley and whose dark history seems to haunt the lives of those who live in its shadow.
While herding the family’s goats on the mountain, Frederika happens upon the mutilated body of one of their neighbors, Eriksson. The death is dismissed as a wolf attack, but Maija feels certain that the wounds could only have been inflicted by another man. Compelled to investigate despite her neighbors’ strange disinterest in the death and the fate of Eriksson’s widow, Maija is drawn into the dark history of tragedies and betrayals that have taken place on Blackåsen. Young Frederika finds herself pulled towards the mountain as well, feeling something none of the adults around her seem to notice.
Cecilia was a customer of ours for many years before she moved to Canada – and we’re are immensely proud of her achievements with her first book. She has given us a signed copy of her book to give away to one of you guys.

The lovely people at Arrow Films have given us 5 copies of the movie TOMMY to give away. Fancy winning a bit of Scandi cinema?
Here’s a bit about the movie: A week before Christmas, Estelle lands at Arlanda Airport. A year earlier, she had left Stockholm on the run with her husband Tommy and their daughter after Tommy had taken part in one of the biggest robberies ever in the history of Swedish crime. Estelle seeks out Tommy’s former cronies and claims that Tommy is on his way home and he wants his share of the take. Word spreads like wildfire through Stockholm’s underworld. If Tommy returns, the city will explode. And if he doesn’t … something even worse might happen.
TOMMY is the story of the woman behind the man behind the headlines. A modern myth about when the Queen returned and the city burned. About two sisters, two mothers, three daughters and their men.
The DVD is out now – and available here

Helen Russell moved to Jylland. A lot of us here can imagine just what she went through! She discovered a startling statistic: the happiest place on earth isn’t Disneyland, but Denmark, a land often thought of by foreigners as consisting entirely of long dark winters, cured herring, Lego and pastries.
What is the secret to their success? Are happy Danes born, or made? Helen decides there is only one way to find out: she will give herself a year, trying to uncover the formula for Danish happiness.
From childcare, education, food and interior design to SAD, taxes, sexism and an unfortunate predilection for burning witches, The Year of Living Danishly is a funny, poignant record of a journey that shows us where the Danes get it right, where they get it wrong, and how we might just benefit from living a little more Danishly ourselves.
You can buy the book right here
We’ve got a couple of copies of the book to give away to lucky winners. To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer this easy question:
What is the name of the Danish Prime Minister?
- Helle Thorning-Schmidt
- Sarah Lund
- Birgitte Nyborg
Email you answer to firstname.lastname@example.org before Tuesday 3rd February 2015 at noon. The winners will be picked from random entries. Usual competition rules apply. No alternative prize. No cash alternative. No cheating.
‘A lovely mix of English sensibility and Danish pragmatism. Helen seems to have understood more about the Danish character than I have! My only worry is that it will make everyone want to have a go and my holiday home area will get overcrowded.’ Sandi Toksvig.
