Cole Haan Messenger crop

Cole Haan “Hudson II” Leather Messenger Bag
Everyone says that, in relationships, it’s best not to try to change your man (or woman). But when it comes to his fashion sense? A little nudge never hurts, especially regarding his work wardrobe. The fastest route to a look that says professional without being professorial is a clean-lined crossbody bag in luxe leather. He’ll carry everything from his laptop to his most sacred files – and himself – with a whole new kind of confidence. And he’ll have you to thank for it.

Missoni Umbrella

Missoni “Sara” Long Umbrella
That friend of yours with about 15 Birkins in her closet? She isn’t the easiest to shop for if you aren’t in the mood to shell out thousands. So here’s your solution. Present her with an umbrella bearing one of this beloved fashion house’s most iconic prints. The Missoni logo will send her shrieking at decibels reserved mostly for opera halls. And you won’t be shrieking at your bank statement. Win-win.

We all have them – those friends with interests so specific, they make shopping quite a challenge. Fear not! We have just the things to save the day. Below, some incredibly thoughtful (and totally luxe) picks for those hard-to-shop-for loved ones.

Card shark: They always beat you at Gin Rummy, but this deck is a sure way to upstage their card-game prowess.

World traveler: This paperweight will inspire hours of daydreaming about their trailblazing adventures (even when chained to a desk).

Fashion fanatic: Why limit snow globes to places they’ve visited? This treasure showcases the greatest love of all – Louis Vuitton.

Game-night hostess: These logo-emblazoned Dominoes are the perfect way to subtly remind game-night participants that their hostess has incredible taste.

Stylish academic: Sure, it may not be the most functional globe in the world. But it’s got style – and isn’t that what counts most?

For these unique treasures (and many more luxe accessories), check out our From the Reserve: Accessories by Hermes & More Boutique, opening Saturday, December 15, at 11AM ET.
