Is it just us, or does it get harder and harder every year to pick out what gifts to give (and to ask for!). We’ve spent more time than we’d like to admit searching for the perfect ideas. Read on to check out the chicest gifts that suit a range of budgets for the style aficionado in your life.
We’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram (for work, we swear!) and can’t get enough of the gorgeous sparkly stacks of bracelets we keep seeing. That’s why Niya K is at the top of our wish list. Niyati’s entire process revolves around creating exactly the piece you want (start dropping hints now!). So, whether it is a bespoke version of those Instagram bracelets, turning your doodle into diamonds, or just creating a simple pair of studs, she’s your girl. Don’t worry if you aren’t keen on the bespoke process – she also has a line of jewelry that you can purchase as is!
Sassy perk: Quote “SASSYCHRISTMAS” to get 5% off the ready to wear collection of diamond jewellery.
Niya K, www.niya-k.com, prices start at $1,800
We can’t help but have at least one piece of Monica Vinader jewellery on our wish list (or in our shopping cart) at all times. We are currently coveting the additions to the Signature Collection, the stunning turquoise Nura Collection, and of course, all of the newest diamond additions. Ideally we’d be able to have a little of everything this holiday season!
The best part might be that there are so many customisation options; not only in how you mix and match the collections but the complimentary engraving possibilities are almost endless. You can do text in a variety of styles, upload your own design, or even create a doodle for them to engrave. The hardest part will be actually giving the jewelery away!
Monica Vinader, various locations across Hong Kong, www.monicavinader.com/hk, prices vary between $1,500 – $30,000

Being stylish doesn’t have to stop at bedtime. We love Grana’s pajama collection for its classy look and quality silk. The pieces are so nice you’ll want to wear them all day – we’ll admit to layering the camisole into our work outfits on a regular basis! The best gifts are the ones you wouldn’t buy yourself and we put these lovely jammies solidly in that camp.
Grana, www.grana.com, the collection of separates starts at $381, with free shipping on orders over $300
The All My Love sunglasses – or any of the endless options from Quay – are our current pick for sunglasses that are fun and trendy without costing a fortune. We’ll admit that the endless list of celebrities wearing the brand have caught our eye, but we think we’ll look pretty amazing in them too!
Available online from Shopbop, for US60 ($468)
If you are looking to splurge on a gift, you can’t go wrong with an iconic bag. The Chloe Small Nile Bag is on our Christmas list because we’ve fallen in love with the bracelet handle that updates the classic Chloe saddle shape. We love the Motty Gray colour and the mix of suede and leather. We’re also telling ourselves how practical and versatile this bag is because of the detachable shoulder strap. That means we can wear it practically every day, making the price totally worth it when you add up all those wears!
Available from Chloe across throughout Hong Kong, or online at Net-a-Porter, for $11,570
Who wouldn’t love to receive a new pair of boots for Christmas!? These cosmic embroidered boots caught our eyes a little while ago and we just can’t get them out of our head. Perfect for dressing up a plain outfit, we can see us wearing these with skirts, dresses, or jeans for seasons to come.
Available online from Mango, or from Mango stores across Hong Kong for $799
