I am the first to admit that I am the world’s worst Christmas gift giver. I forget until the last minute that this takes time and effort, and I end up panicking, and giving stuff that makes everyone cringe.

For all the popularity Lisbon has amassed over the past few years as a sought-after travel destination, Porto is still overlooked. But it shouldn’t be: Portugal’s “second city” is the country’s real standard setter when it comes to design, thanks to its heritage as a manufacturing hub through most of the 19th and 20th centuries. Now it’s gaining traction as a shopping mecca, too, filled with locally made items by emerging designers who can’t be found elsewhere.
