For those who love the finer things in life (and who doesn’t?), these gifts are beautiful and designed to last. Modelled on the glassware that sits on French bedside tables, Maison Balzac’s carafes are mouth-blown in the traditional way, while Holly Ryan’s sculptural jewellery is sustainably made with recycled metals and ethically sourced stones.
Zoe Pook’s pieces use gold from the Macdesa mine in Peru, one of the few mines in the world recognised as Fairtrade and maintaining good conditions for the people who work there.
Made in New York, Heretic parfums contain natural, plant-based oils and fragrance, and they’re designed to be worn by everyone. Biossance is another brand that’s vegan and free from synthetic ingredients. They’d look beautiful together on your bathroom shelf.
For every Lockit bracelet sold, Louis Vuitton gives $US100 to UNICEF – since its launch in 2016, this partnership has raised over $11 million. To give the gift of art to your discerning luxury lover, Jerico Contemporary gallery in Sydney can create gift certificates to redeem against the gallery’s exhibits. We also love this dramatic Maya Hoffman dress (perfect for an opening) and these handmade sandals – they take two weeks to make so you’ll need to hurry before Christmas.
