Feeling stuck when it comes to finding the perfect Christmas gifts ideas this year? To help you with the task, we asked Hong Kong personal shopper Ihna Holtermann to send us in the direction of the most stylish, considered gifts for everyone on your list.

Gifts for him

‘You can’t go wrong with a luxury cashmere sweater. I’d avoid novelty Christmas colours to get maximum wear, and keep in mind that a crew neck works better on narrower builds, and V-neck for wider frames. Sharp, elegant luggage is always a great way to up a man’s style credentials and confidence for those work trips and weekends away — go for charcoals and taupe shades to help his luggage stand out from the sea of black. Luxury grooming products, such as a shaving brush and cream, are also a lovely gift that a lot of men wouldn’t splurge on for themselves.’

Gifts for her

‘For a real splurge, the Cartier Ballon Bleu watch will make this Christmas one to remember forever. It’s the perfect mix of classic and modern that can be passed down generations to come. A silk Hermès scarf is a versatile and timeless accessory that can be worn year-round, whether as a headscarf, traditionally around the neck, tied onto your favourite handbag, as a belt or even a top — the options are endless! And the athleisure trend seems to be here to stay, so why not help her look her best for those new year’s ‘get fit’ resolutions?’

Gifts for kids

‘A classic Steiff teddy bear is a lovely heartfelt gift for children of all ages, and as a collectable item you could be starting a beautiful tradition for years to come. For an elegant and more environmentally friendly option, wooden toys tick all the boxes. A Brio train set will last for decades and can be added to through the years. You can also look at maker kits, which are a great way to stimulate kids’ love of science and their natural creativity. If you’re looking for something for a new baby, a beautiful Christmas tree decoration is a thoughtful way to commemorate a baby’s first Christmas.’

Gifts for hosts

‘You can’t go wrong with a scented candle — Jo Malone’s Green Almond and Redcurrant Christmas candle hits all the right Christmas notes to have their house smelling wonderfully festive. An elegant wine carafe is a beautiful addition to any household, and they look lovely displayed when not in use. Of course, champagne is always a crowd pleaser, too. For a really special gift I’d recommend something like Taittinger Blanc de Blanc, a vintage bottle.’
