Gear from Fjällräven – Prices Vary
Swedish outfitter Fjällräven has everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors. We like the look of the Abisko Shade Jacket ($135) for men and the Abisko Hybrid Breeze Jacket ($150) for women for when the weather warms up a little. We’ve also got our eyes on the Foldsack No. 1 Backpack ($100) to hold our gear when we hike.

Swedish Books – Prices Vary
Nothing beats a good book. We’ve taken interest in Elisabet der Nederlanden’s “Holiday Cookies” and Niki Brantmark’s “Lagom: Not Too Little, Not Too Much.” And the upcoming “The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning” by Margareta Magnusson also has our attention. If you’re looking for a little heavier reading, try these recent releases: Henning Mankell’s “After the Fire” or Fredrik Backman’s “Bear Town.”
