Evgenia Shokhina, editor-in-chief of the magazine "Business of Russia": - Our living space with my husband, however, like life itself, is completely subordinated to the interests of children. Therefore, when planning a new home, we gave them most of the space. Although I am not a bore, I love order, so all things in the house are very practical: if the sofa is a folding one, if a children's bed - then with a box for toys, if a wardrobe - then up to the ceiling, so that things are not lying around. We moved recently, but we already managed to arrange everything and bring comfort (even as a child, I knew how to arrange paradise in huts, even without having a loved one). The only thing that has not yet reached our hands is to the carpets. It seems to me that if we are talking about a high-quality expensive carpet, then it will turn out to be a really good gift not only for a successful woman on March 8, but also for other good people.

Ksenia Yukhananova, journalist: - March 8 is a favorite and long-awaited holiday. The day when you always have a bouquet of flowers on your table. The day when even on the street men smile and compliment you. And, of course, on this day you are waiting for some miracle, it is about to happen, and the gift of a dream will be presented at your feet. What does the girl dream about? For example, I would very much like to receive two things as a gift: an elegant dressing table and a canvas painting that matches my dreams. A dressing table is such a cute corner that belongs only to you, and when you spend time around it, this is your time, even if you just put a puff on your nose. I think this is an absolutely wonderful piece of furniture, which, as it seems to me, is necessary for every girl. My daughter, for example, has her own little dressing table and, by the way, it is popular. They don't let me into the holy of holies. As for the painting, I would like a delicate large canvas that could be hung in the bedroom. It would be a reflection of my dream. Perhaps the Paris of distant times in the haze of rain, or the lavender field of Provence, or, on the contrary, bright sunflowers in the south of Spain. And then, it seems to me, the room will sparkle with hitherto unknown colors.
