5 of the best Christmas gonk buys
‘My childhood was filled with gonks,’ says Gisela Graham, CEO of interiors brand Gisela Graham London. She grew up in Germany, ‘surrounded by Nordic and Scandinavian mythology’, and these curious little creatures from folklore have been making themselves very comfortable in UK households. Christmas gonks have become so popular (Gisela Graham London has seen a three-fold increase in sales every year over recent years) that they’re now popping up as gonk bedding, gonk slippers – even gonk tinsel. Good Homes picks out some of the best buys on the market…
