Whether you are celebrating the holiday season by hitting Hong Kong’s parties, hibernating at home with the family or jetting off to a far flung destination, wandering around the shops searching for presents can be a headache at the best of times. Sassy has tracked down the best online gift sites that deliver globally so whoever you’ve got on your list, we’ve got you covered…
Giftlab has the holiday season all wrapped up carrying 150 brands and offering inspiration on their gift board where the present-obsessed team pin all sorts of fabulous products so you can get ideas of what to give your sister, mother and even your dog this holiday season. We especially love the El Toro Diana F+ and Flash Camera and the Lucky Voice Pink Microphone Karaoke Party Box. Another fave? The Intelligence Squared Open To Debate limited edition gift box which offers 6 priority seats and the opportunity to join the IQ2 round table to help decide debate topics for the autumn season – talk about intelligent gifting. Check out loads of fab gift picks here.
Culture Label is a virtual museum gift shop store full of arty and unique gifts. With a whole section that allows you to choose from the offerings at the Tate, Barbican and British Museum amongst others, this is definitely one for that culture vulture on your list. We love their huge selection of quirky children’s gifts and art books of all shapes and sizes, and the gear from their Science Museum selection has loads for inquiring minds young and old.
Net-A-Porter has a holiday gift guide to die for. From stocking fillers to holiday sweaters and gift cards they even have the men in your life covered with Mr.Porter. Buy the Kate Moss book for your fashionista friend, a Lanvin Happy grossgrain bag for your mother or some Clubmaster two-tone sunglasses from Ray Ban for your boyfriend and wait for those sleek black boxes to arrive.
With over 25 monogram styles and products raging from stemless wine glasses and cutting boards to lamsbwool and angora throw blankets and bathrobes the East Hampton-based The Monogram Shop gives monograming new meaning. Sassy Mama picks? The cotton roll neck sweaters for kids and the striped beach towels.
Eyestorm offers works by established and emerging artists. Limited edition work on the site includes pieces by artists such as Peter Blake, Damien Hirst and Polly Morgan.
Pottery Barn with their grown up offering as well as their kids and teen site pretty much covers everyone in the family. Sassy loves that the personalised name books, the mini coolers (especially in aqua) and the Bluetooth tailgate speaker amp make all mothers seem cool on Christmas day.
Miansai by Michael Singer is perfect for those men who do wear jewellery. Leather, silver, rose gold and brass finishes make up this fantastic collection of necklaces, bracelets and rings. Teen boys will love their take on the leather or cord silver wrist wraps they normally pick up on beach holidays.
Picture This is a Hong Kong store that ships worldwide. Choose from their extensive collection of first edition books, vintage posters and photography including iconic black and white works by Yau Leung or the vibrant hues of Keith MacGregor’s Hong Kong cityscapes.
