December 14th: The cool side of the pillow.

This gift has been given away, but you can find today's gift on the Decemberfest calendar 


The cool side of the pillow is one of life's greatest comforts. On hot summer nights, when you wake up sweating and unable to get back to sleep, a simple flip of the pillow reveals a hidden oasis of pure icy jubilation. It's a scientific mystery how the cool side of the pillow stays cool, but the cool side of the pillow is real and restorative and beautiful. (By the way, it isn't a scientific mystery, but it sounded perfect in the previous sentence.)


For Decemberfest today, Hirschkind is giving away a pillow that has two cool sides — one more cool side than your average pillow. It has the normal cool side that you find when you flip the pillow over, but it also has a cool side that you see before you even flip the pillow. That side has a picture of two bunny rabbits. A doubly cool pillow, indeed. 


Big pillow

Hirschkind is owned by Benny and Nici, who operate a store in Berlin's Kreuzberg neighborhood. There they sell products that are fairly produced with organic materials. That means that this pillow isn't just cool on two sides: This pillow's coolness can be found in every thread and fiber it contains. In Hirschkind's Jimdo store (German), you can purchase shirts, cloths, towels, bags, sheets, postcards, silverware — and everything is organic and stamped with one of Hirschkind's custom designs.


If you'd like a chance to win this super cool pillow, all you have to do is leave a comment below or retweet our daily Decemberfest tweet. If you aren't already following Jimdo on Twitter, you really should — in addition to talking about Decemberfest, we answer your questions and tell funny jokes.

    What a darling design! Very cool pillow - and the underside of the pillow is one of the BEST parts of life, isn't it?? (And my ex thought it was difficult to make me

    Thank you for offering such a chill giveaway - I love all the vendors who have offered up prizes. The charity of these businesses makes the Christmas/Holiday spirit glow!
