Here are five affordable and chic gifts.

Tom Ford underwear

From US$89

Anything with the name Tom Ford tends to be notoriously expensive, which is why his debut line of underwear is a great gift for the designer junkie. Featuring four styles: briefs, trunks, short boxers and boxers – the collection is made from natural cotton and silk. The overall look is more high fashion, thanks to a palette of nudes, animal prints and stylish fabrics such as metallic jersey. Each pair is finished with a velvet waistband – a luxe detail that is signature Ford.

Face roller

US$40 from Lane Crawford

Who needs face yoga when you can roll instead? Beauty addicts are already hooked onto this latest craze, which promises skin benefits including boosting circulation, cell growth and collagen renewal, while assisting with lymphatic drainage.

How the Hong Kong man about town can wear Zegna or Tom Ford and not break the bank

While the technique actually dates back to seventh-century China (wealthy women would use rollers made from jade) the latest versions are crafted from semi-precious stones such as opal, amethyst and tiger’s eye.

 

Fabric totes

US$48 by Future Classics x Madmatter from Kapok

More fashion editors are swapping designer handbags for fabric totes because they are easy to use, eco-friendly and sustainable. Eco-warriors are bound to love this new collection, courtesy of unisex clothing label Future Classics and Thai lifestyle brand Madmatter.

Leftover fabrics from the former’s collections have been repurposed by Madmatter to create a series of fun one-of-a-kind totes featuring their signature patchwork pattern.

 

Customised leather stickers

From US$70 by Chaos Club, shop.chaos.club.

The fashion world went crazy over Chaos’ personalised iPhone cases, so it’s likely that their latest creations will be perfect stocking stuffers this Christmas. The brand now offers sleek deerskin leather stickers designed to cover items such as laptop adaptors, cables and AirPods. In true Chaos style, each covering can be personalised with your initials.

Faux fur slippers

US$50 from J Crew

It may be cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look chic when lounging at home. These fuzzy slippers are the perfect gift for fashionistas and come covered in classic leopard print (which is a neutral after all!) They are made from faux fur so you can shop without guilt.
