Tatler 10: Have a Very Gucci Christmas With These Luxurious Gift Ideas
1/10 GG Marmont mini sequin shoulder bag
One of the best parts about the festive season is being able to go all out when it comes to amping up your style—and we’re talking excessive amounts of sequins, flashy colours and more. Gucci’s well-loved Marmont range features the perfect accessory that will immediately transform your outfit into a dazzling ensemble. The GG Marmont sequin shoulder bag comes in several variations in terms of size, colour and fabric but we think the sequin-adorned versions, available in black, silver and multi-colour, are just made for merrymaking.
The GG Marmont shoulder bag will be available in Gucci boutiques after December 6, 2020.
2/10 GG shoulder bag with leather details
Most of us haven’t done much (or any) travelling for the bulk of 2020 so to make up for that—how about a bag that’s inspired by vintage trunks and travel luggage? While you can’t really offer a plane ticket to help cure your special someone's wanderlust right now, this shoulder bag is something to wear in the meantime as he or she looks forward to travelling once again. The structured square shape is reminiscent of traditional suitcases and the design is finished with logo-engraved metal feet. It’s such a versatile piece that can be worn in several ways for any occasion—including to the airport when the time is right.
3/10 Marble print medium round tray
Know someone who will never say ‘no’ to a new objet d’art for the abode? This beautiful tray will make an elegant centrepiece on the dining table or coffee table and is also large enough to use for serving. The medium-sized metal tray features an antiqued marbled effect with the Gucci logo and a playful phrase, “Souvenir from Rome”, printed in the middle.

4/10 Gucci Off The Grid mini bag
This adorable bag is such a fun accessory to wear because of its miniature size but before you forget that it’s the season of giving, add this to your list of fashionable gifts for the lucky ones in your life. Opt for the orange or yellow colourway if you’re gifting it to someone who enjoys a vibrant look; the black variant is timeless and chic so you can’t go wrong with it either. Eco-friendly fashionphiles will be happy to know that this Off The Grid mini bag is made from recycled materials and trims, including nylon crafted using Econyl, a fabric sourced from regenerated materials, that has been increasingly used by several luxury brands over the past year in a bid to make fashion more sustainable.
5/10 GG and check wool throw blanket
We don’t have to be living somewhere cold to own a luxurious wool throw blanket, especially when it can be draped over an accent chair in the bedroom or living room. It will make a simple and chic gift for a family member who enjoys home decor as much as fashion. The blanket takes cues from the Cruise 2020 ready-to-wear collection, with borrowed motifs and patterns such as a red and ivory check wool on one side and brown and yellow interlocking G stripe wool on the other side.
6/10 Freesia, medium Guccy Hollywood candle
Scented candles are frequently gifted among friends and family but if you’re looking for something that’s a little different this year, this Guccy Hollywood candle can do the trick. The candle is housed in a gorgeous light pink Richard Ginori porcelain and is embellished with the luxury maison’s house codes such as the butterfly. The Freesia scent is a fresh yet intoxicating botanical blend that contains green notes of violet leaves and resinous galbanum. What we love most about this stylish candle is that the porcelain jar can be reused as a decorative accent later on—and we’re all about upcycling items around the house.
7/10 Gucci Horsebit 1955 small bucket bag
Shopping for the sartorially savvy is never easy, but here is a new shape introduced within Gucci’s Horsebit 1955 range that is sure to please the fashion-forward among your loved ones. The silhouette is reminiscent of a bucket bag except it is more cylindrical in shape with a semi-rigid body. The bag’s design includes a drawstring closure, gold hardware and comes in three colours: black leather, beige vintage canvas and GG supreme canvas. It’s the perfect size to carry your belongings and can take you from day to night.
8/10 Sylvie 1969 mini shoulder bag
This Christmas, earn the title of best sibling or favourite child by picking out a trendy gift for your family member. Classy and elegant, the Sylvie 1969 shoulder bag is available in four colours: black, blue, white and red python. The bag is completed with an adjustable strap that can be worn on one shoulder or as a crossbody. The narrow gold metal chain fitted to the flap is a fancy touch that elevates the design, which also takes inspiration from Gucci’s archives.

9/10 Check wool cushion with fawn
Gucci’s luxurious cushions are one of the best things to come out of the maison’s collection of furniture and decorative pieces designed by Alessandro Michele. This made-in-Italy square pillow will add a sophisticated touch to anyone’s home. What’s even more curious and special about our pick is the fawn patch in the center that was created using a needlepoint technique. The Gucci logo is also emblazoned in a floral print fabric and stitched across the top of the pillow. It will make a beautiful gift for an eclectic home.

10/10 Broche print porcelain box with hand and ring
When Gucci first released its decor line, fans everywhere celebrated the collection’s exceptional pieces that covered a wide range of products from tableware to trinket trays and porcelain boxes. So why not gift a friend (or yourself) a piece of Gucci Décor this festive season? We’re absolutely enamoured by this decorative light blue Richard Ginori porcelain box with broche print design and gold trimmings. And to top it all off, it comes with a pink lid and handle that takes the shape of a white hand holding a ring—a recurring design seen throughout the collection.
