As of today, it’s 15 days to Christmas.
Considering how much prep goes on at your annual holiday gatherings, 15 days isn’t a lot of time to get everything in order — what with the baubles to hang, cakes to order and dates to confirm — and after all that is done, you still need to hunt for the perfect holiday presents for your nearest and dearest.
That’s where Hermès comes in to save the day. With a wide-ranging selection of thoughtfully curated gift suggestions that span a variety of personalities and tastes, there’s a little something for every person in your life. These holiday gift ideas from Hermès are so perfect, it’ll seem as if they were picked by Santa himself.
To get you started, here are some of our favourite ones:
01 | For The Trendsetter
Only the most fashionable accessories for the fashionable ones in your circle will do. Rather than play it safe, flash out with a range of statement-making accessories that promise plenty of chic mileage.
A pair of gold sandals gets finished with a statement gold heel for that extra bling, while fans of print and colour will immediately take to the dizzying patterns on a vibrant silk scarf or the bold red mini bag.
02 | For The House-Proud Hostess
Given that we’re all going to be home for the holidays (quite literally), it’s no surprise that homeware is experiencing its moment right now.
Start with a set of ceramic mugs printed with exuberant tropical floral prints that will undoubtedly stand out on your dining table. For those looking to live out their The Queen’s Gambit fantasies, a mahogany and leather marquetry chess set checks that box, while a wool-cashmere blended jacquard blanket in striking tones of vermilion, beige and blue will add cosiness to any living space.
03 | For The Man On The Move
The guy who’s always on the go rarely has time to fuss about his clothing. He needs practical pieces that move with him and keep up with his pace.
For this contemporary go-getter, here’s a range of items to suit, beginning with a pair of hardy ankle boots in smooth calfskin and lined with shearling — perfectly suited for when he gets to travel to a wintery destination again. To complement his utilitarian stompers, a cushy cashmere beanie helps to keep him warm and cosy. For a finishing touch, look to a wristwatch that’s out of this world.
04 | All-time favourites
Whether it’s a piece of jewellery, a tech accessory, or a silk twill scarf, some items will always rise to the occasion of impressing and exciting everyone.
Give a tech junkie a calfskin phone case with an attached wrist strap, and watch their eyes light up as they fit their new iPhones into its protective compartment. Lovers of Hermès’ iconic silk scarves will adore a double-sided scarf design that features intricate illustrations rendered in bright mustard and earthy green, while a turn-clasp Kelly Baguette bracelet, featuring five rows of black spinels set in rose gold, will make for an elegant addition to anyone’s jewellery box.
