Spread the love

With the holiday season upon us, you might be invigorated with a sense of generosity — or, at least, more so than usual. The thrill of finding the perfect Christmas gift is only matched by the look of delight and surprise on your loved one’s face as they unwrap their treats on the morning of 25 December.

If you truly want to spread good tiding and cheer this year, give them the gift of a merry Hermes Christmas. The French luxury brand has plenty of thoughtful tokens that will put a smile on even the least festive person in your life.

Hermes gifts run the gamut from the practical to the ornamental, from traditional to unconventional. They are as diverse as the personalities of the people we love. If you’re shopping for a tech-head, the Apple Hermes AirTag is an obvious choice. Those who are dedicated to their grooming, on the other hand, will notice the superior quality of an Hermes lipstick or fragrance. They might even treasure these items for many more Christmases to come.

The gifts listed below are made for anyone who appreciate the finer things in life. Read on for our suggestions on how to pick them for the right recipient.

H24 Eau de toilette for men

If anything can convince the man in your life to settle on a signature scent, it’s the H24. You know it’s special because it’s the first men’s fragrance Hermes has created in 15 years, and it has indeed been worth the wait. H24 will add a dose of freshness to its wearer’s aura, appealing with notes of narcissus, earthy sage and floral rosewood. The bottle itself is a pleasant object that he will want to keep among his other grooming essentials, and, because it’s refillable, we believe that’s where it will stay for a long time.

Étriers Chromatiques scarf 100cm in cashmere and silk

Hermes silk scarves are a tried-and-tested gift idea that has delighted for decades now. What makes each one a joy to have is that they can be worn in a variety of clever ways (the French brand has even demonstrated turning the scarf into a belt bag). There’s also a lot of care that goes into every Hermes carré, which is made and printed by hand. This particular design, inspired by Emile Hermes’ collection of harnesses, is abstract enough to become a well-worn favourite.

Hermes’ new timepiece for the ladies is one that’s hard to turn down. The Faubourg Polka’s slim bracelet is matched with a surprisingly petite dial face lined with diamonds, which makes it both a watch and a piece of jewellery at the same time. Styling it will never be a headache. And, with its flattering rose gold exterior, it will look beautiful on a variety of skintones.
