Your 2021 Holiday Gift Guide: Cartier Fragrance Cases, Artwork from Tappan, Dior Sneakers, and More

By Pearl Fontaine

December 20, 2021

With the holidays right around the corner, Whitewall is sharing its top picks to help you fulfill your last-minute gifting needs—including options from Cartier, Tappan, Dior, and more.

For that special someone who loves cerulean hues, Bucherer’s “BLUE” timepiece collection should provide plenty of options. Here, the jewelry house has curated a selection of the finest watches, calling on collaborators like Chopard, Longines, Oris, and Girard-Perregaux to present their best limited-edition designs, each imagined in an icy palette. Our favorites include the Soldier watch by Breitling and the contemporary model from IWC, which features aqua numerals and details on a white gold case, finished with a sporty nylon strap.

For the one on your list who is tuned into streetwear, you’ll have them looking their best when they unwrap a pair of the Oblique Tapestry B23 style from Dior men’s. Imagined in a classic high-top shape, the lace-up shoe features the Oblique monogram motif embroidered in textural olive greens and whites, outfitted with white laces and rubber soles, and a fuzzy microfiber-and-calfskin lining.

Still on the hunt for an accessory gift? Ray Griffiths’s Crownwork Tapered Hoops with diamonds are a gorgeous option for those that love to accessorize. The jeweler’s signature Crownwork cutout has been applied to the thick gold earrings, which are interposed with a small band of diamonds enclosed in oxidized silver. Anyone who unwraps these striking hoops will be set for years to come with a timeless accessory that can easily be dressed up or down.

PATRÓN’s collaboration with Michelle Zauner’s indie rock band Japanese Breakfast is on the top of our list for a fun mixology moment. The resulting Cocktail Courier Kit is outfitted with every ingredient needed to craft your own Persimmon Paloma, ideal to bestow upon your favorite host. Embracing the symbolism found between tequila and music, the persimmon beverage was chosen for the fruit’s significance as a symbol of longevity and luck when celebrating the New Year, as well as its inspiration in Japanese Breakfast’s latest musical release entitled Jubilee. In addition to the essential ingredients, the kit includes items like custom chopsticks, a one-of-a-kind PATRÓN x Japanese Breakfast bar towel, and a set of coasters.

Max ID NY’s Ghost tumblers are at the top of our wish list for its sleek designs and unforgettable color options. Hand-blown in a 1970s-esque Venetian geometric style, the drinkware comes in a set of two, with color options like green, pink, and our favorite—a spotted leopard variation. The glasses are easily stackable and the perfect size for your favorite evening beverage, so we’d recommend getting a pair for yourself when you purchase them for the drink connoisseur on your gifting list.

Ideal for the friend with a quirky sense of style, Keavy Murphree’s Lovely Lou sculpture will add character to any space. Available through the design brand LES Collection, the functional ceramic vessel presents as a cuboidal face with geometric features, which we’d recommend delivering filled with your favorite bunch of flowers.

Searching for a gift option for the fashion-informed? Choose a piece from HANH Collection’s designs for the winter season. Launched by Hanh Merriman earlier this year, the ready-to-wear line draws inspiration from its founder’s Vietnamese roots and her experiences in travel and fashion. Luxurious materials in a suite of winter white, mustard, navy, and deep greens set a palette for contemporary, elegant daywear. The collection includes garments like a long, pleated skirt in white, a pair of trousers in a kumquat blossom jacquard, and a series of Áo dài-inspired silhouettes, like a high-necked vest or a dress in a hue of moss that fastens at the collar bone.

A fragrance from Cartier enclosed in one of its Nécessaires à Parfum cases is a sensuous gift that won’t be forgotten. First, choose from luxurious designs like the green Mashrabiya case or the simplistic Golden design, then outfit it with a refillable fragrance spray. Choices include entrancing scents like Oud, Ambre, and Pink Magnolia, among others.

If you haven’t visited the online gallery Tappan Collective, you’ll want to take a look at gift options for all of the art and design collectors on your list. Among its selection of original works, sculptures, textiles, and limited-edition prints and photographs are featured names like Astrid Verhoef, Firoozeh Neman, Bella McGoldrick, and Jan Prengel. Though we’ve had our eye on a print of Katie Burdon’s photograph Two Figures in A Room 8, the site’s option to browse by mood or medium should make it easy to find just the right fit.
