Christmas Gonks | Gifts from Handpicked Blog
18 November 2022
Did you know that Gonks are one of the most popular decorations to have for Christmas time? Over the years they have become more and popular, and we have a huge range of Christmas Gonks for you to enjoy. Originally, Gonks come from Nordic and Scandinavian mythology. Gonks have been made to include a mix of a gnome and a hobgoblin which makes them look so unique and special. From folklore, Gonks were known to take homes in barns or houses during festive season.
What we love about Gonks is the fact you can have them anywhere in your home! Whether it be in your living room, kitchen, bedroom or utility room, Gonks suit absolutely every home you could think of. Gonks can be decorated in the colourations of red and white, which is the traditional festive look that we all know and love. However in the modern day you can every type of Gonk from tartan, pastel, pink and more!
If you were thinking of buying some Gonks for Christmas, why not explore our blog to find some of the amazing choices that we have on offer. They come from brands such as Heaven Sends and Gisela Graham, so why not have a look around our collection of Christmas Gonks today!
