We get into the holiday spirit with Patricia Michelson, founder of La Fromagerie cheese shop, who talks us through the perfect seasonal cheeseboard. We also hear from Tromsø in northern Norway, where Monocle’s Melkon Charchoglyan has been meeting reindeer herders, and we meet Brett Wolstencroft of London’s Daunt Books, to discuss what kind of books make great gifts.
