The art of giving is a delicate one, particularly during the festive season. Our golden rule? Stick with the classics and this means turning to Hermès, one of the biggest luxury institutions in the world, for ideas. The illustrious past and time-honoured design brilliance of the storied French house set it apart from the rest of the pack and firmly establishes its legacy in a league of its own.

For its annual Holiday collection, Hermès placed its brand ethos of luxury craftsmanship and playful sensibility front and centre. The diverse range caters to all, from its classic leather goods to refined everyday objects to its signature Carré scarves available alongside elevated equestrian essentials — think Russian hats in baby lamb and calf skin. Here are 10 ideas to make you the most thoughtful gift giver this Christmas.
