Trunk call

The New Dandy Trunk by T.T. Trunks is a collection of luggage designed for the gentleman who likes to party in style. More mini entertainment kit, the trunk is designed for fun: one drawer is a humidifier for storing cigars, while another contains poker chips, cards and a folding poker table. The others hold luxe accessories such as neckties and watches. The perfect gift for a boy's night in. tttrunks.com

Let off steam

If you're seeking an energised and smooth start to the Lunar New Year then the Landmark Mandarin Oriental's spa, The Oriental Spa, has just the ticket for the ultimate in gentleman's pampering. The 'For Gentlemen Only' ritual begins with a detoxifying steam followed by an invigorating hammam scrub performed on a heated marble massage table. A deep tissue or Swedish massage, mini facial and, to replenish you afterwards, a juice, smoothie or tea. Lasting two-hours and 20 minutes, the treatment costs HK$1,790 (weekends) or HK$1,590 (week days).

Hip to be square

Telling the time has gone sci-fi with the Art du Temps clock, a futuristic piece of machinery involving a lot of moving squares. When in passive mode, some of these squares randomly move up and down to indicate the passing of the seconds. To see the time you verbally ask it to show the time then the squares move around to display a digital clock, but one that uses physical pieces. Priced at 90,000 Swiss Francs (HK$745,000). Orders can be taken next month. designby8.com
