The festive season is upon us and, like it or not, it’s about time you start thinking about Christmas presents. We’re taking it back to basics here: Red is the colour of Christmas. Think holly berries, think Father Christmas, think your red nose when you’ve been playing out in the snow … Well, maybe not in Hong Kong. Either way, we’re getting you inspired for Christmas with an array of rouge gift ideas. Enjoy!
Cocon Lounge Chair
If there’s one time of year when you should be snuggling up in a chair, it’s Christmas. The Cocon Chair is a beautiful marriage of blanket and chair and it is the perfect way to spend the holiday — wrapped up in a cuddly chair watching TV. You can even ask someone to join you!
The weight vase is a study in beautiful functionality. The hefty bottom of the vase contains the water, and the wire frame holds the flower in place. This leaves the thorny stem beautifully exposed, evoking Flaubert, who said, “A thorn in bloom was spreading its wrath of roses.” You’ve got to have a bit of poetry at Christmas.
Red Silk Slippers
Slippers are a mainstay of any Christmas stocking and these ones are particularly festive with their deep red tones and lovely pearl bauble. They really are a fantastic and stylish pair of slippers — simple yet sophisticated. The best bit? They come with their own carry case so you can slip them in your handbag and never be slipperless again.
Mummy Case for iPad Mini
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a tech gadget accessory. The unique strap composition design of The Mummy is not only sexy but it actually enhances grip and prevents accidental slip-outs. The strap design also leaves the ports and buttons of the device open to access with the case attached to the body of the tablet. Husbands, fathers and sons will love this.
Ever wonder what your fruit would look like if it were racing? Well someone obviously has, and they’ve created this brilliantly unique take on the fruit bowl. Racing Red is a mini racetrack for your fruit and sure to brighten up any dinner table. It’s one of those cheeky gifts that you can only really get away with giving at Christmas.
Forget Me Not Vase
To be honest, you’re unlikely to forget this vase. A dainty and handcrafted item, this vase lets your flower sing for itself. The vase is simply produced in beech and yarn and offers a no-frills approach to displaying your flowers.
