For him and her: Hermès’ holiday collection has something for everyone on your list
Think of Hermès and its bags (Birkin, Kelly, you name it), silk scarves and bracelets come to mind, but for the holidays, we're making sure everyone on your list gets a piece of the brand's oh-so-covetable holiday collection, including the men in your life. I mean, can anyone really resist the iconic orange box? As we do the final countdown to Christmas (T-minus four days!), if you're still on the quest to find the perfect gift, we're sure something from our list below will catch your attention. From jewellery to shoes and bags, whoever who's getting a gift from Hermès this season is about to get a major style upgrade.
There's a wide range of lust-worthy products for the guys this season, and the accessories definitely took centre stage. We particularly love the sleek leather sneakers that struck the right balance between casual yet dressy, and the light brown Sac à dépêches briefcase that'll stand out in a sea of plain black bags at the office. Practical scarves (for winter trips) and a printed tie for work are fail-proof, but if your loved ones are a fan of woody and earthy scents, the brand's latest men's perfume—the Terre d'Hermès—should be on your buying list.
Let's start with the girl's best friend: jewellery. Our top pick this season, is the Médor Rock watch featuring a diamond-set lacquered pyramid stud and triple tour strap in smooth calfskin—it's a watch and bracelet in one. Alternatively, the Alchimie Hermès bracelet in rose gold and black spinels is also a stunning option. Bag-wise, instead of the Birkin or Kelly, go for the brand's latest crossbody bag—the Sac a Mosaique—with a hardware emblem that resembles the pattern of the floor of its 24 Faubourg boutique as its clasp. The Le Tour du monde silk twill may seem like a plain geometric scarf at first, but take a closer look and you'll notice it's actually a scarf and game in one!
For him and her:
If you're searching for gifts for couples (who share everything anyway), we've also got a few gift ideas that will be the perfect addition to their home. First up, we love how pretty yet functional the Avalon Tangram cashmere blanket is—the colourful geometric pattern will add that pop of vibrancy to the simplest of homes, not forgetting the pretty A Walk in the Garden teacup that will make you look forward to your morning coffee or tea every day. The leather-care box consists of saddle balm, soap and oil might not be the top pick when it comes to Christmas presents, but it surely is useful. Lastly, roller-skates are a fun alternative, and a leather pair from Hermès will always be welcomed.
