The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner, and that means you can start looking forward to telling Santa if you have been naughty or nice. And if you don’t believe in Santa anymore, believe that your best mates will be fussing over what to get you this season. The solution? Send them this list and hint heavily if what you want is here, all of which can be found via MR PORTER, with complimentary express shipping right to your doorstep in no time at all.
The selection starts with quirky trinkets like the yellow Dice Ceramic Vase (SGD104) from Stüssy and the Undercover x Will Sweeny Mr Buttons PVC Lamp (SGD954) modelled after the cartoon mushroom. Both streetwear brands have consistently offered gift items for the home over the years, and these are some of the newer pieces to consider, especially with the Undercover lamp being MR PORTER’s exclusive design. Fancy something to spruce up the space even further? Go for the Billionaire Boys Club Logo-Print Wool Rug (SGD373) shaped after an apple or the navy The Skateroom x Andy Warhol Skateboard (SGD302), which is sold together with a wall-mounting kit so you can hang it around the home.
The next three curated gifts are more for the artist in you, such as Assouline’s RIMOWA Hardcover Book (SGD215), Polaroid Originals’ One Step 2 Viewfinder Instant Camera (SGD191) and Smythson’s Grosvenor Leather Games Compendium (SGD3761), which are all great pieces to enjoy in the comfort of your home. Read a book, snap some retro pictures with your loved ones, or play old-school games like checkers, chess and dominoes with this trio.
Lastly, there are the tongue-in-cheek luxury gifts that are sure to put a smile on your face. The Balenciaga Logo-Print Silver-Tone Key Fob (SGD559) might remind you of a particular credit card’s logo, while the bright green Logo-Embossed Perforated Leather Wash Bag (SGD1101) is totally different from the GG Supreme Canvas which has dominated Gucci’s shelves in recent years. As for something that borders slightly on being a more functional piece, that would be Saint Laurent’s Logo-Appliquéd Cardholder (SGD544), finished with a croc-embossed effect to add a little sparkle to an otherwise ordinary-looking leather SLG. #happyshopping
