Christmas Shopping. For some, it is the best part of the holiday and for others, the thought of hitting the shops during December only brings a sense of fear and dread. Whichever camp you sit in, everyone can do with a little extra inspiration when it comes to finding the perfect gift. And at The Home Stylist, we believe that you can’t go wrong with homeware and decorations.
So, we’ve scoured the shops and asked all our partners to find a selection of unique and beautiful gifts to share with you this season. All these items are available to buy online or in store in Hong Kong now.

“Our most elegant and extravagant potted orchid is a show-stopping display – it is the finest quality artificial orchid available, incredibly lifelike and is frequently mistaken for the real thing.
It comes complete with 12 orchid stems featuring perfect white flowers and buds, 5 sets of realistic looking leaves and roots and authentic soil set in a white crackle glaze planter with delicate blue rose trellis design.”

Lights are for life, not just for Christmas
From: Bragg and Co Lighting
“The totally handmade effect to these lamps makes each one unique and special. The depth and texture in each design makes them truly delightful. This colour range is limited in each run that we do so as to keep them fresh and exclusive with reduced production numbers. They are an absolute favourite and we often have clients waiting for each new shipment when we produce them.
Hand-crafted with love

These decorative, hand-painted dim sum baskets are perfect for keepsakes, jewellery and trinkets and come in a variety of colours. We love the idea of buying a selection of sizes and colours and displaying them together. They would look great in the kitchen or dressing room.
Also from Made In New Territories are these hand painted Chinese letterboxes. This is a really thoughtful gift for someone who has just moved house or really anyone with an eye for unique designs. With something as pretty as this, you might not even want to keep it outside! Think outside the box and use it as a magazine rack or vase for artificial flowers.

Vintage Specialities and One of a Kind Finds
“This masterpiece by Hermes has been handmade in France with extraordinary attention to detail. The process alone is a work of art, as each scarf requires over 2000 hours of labour to engrave up to 43 silk-screens, one per colour, and all applied by hand. Beauty such as this earns the right to be proudly on display.
Bowerbird Home is well known for framing an exquisite collection of vintage scarves. All scarves have been individually sourced and selected based on a variety of factors, but most importantly for their beauty. Other contributing factors include; rarity, condition, artistic movements and the designer/artists repute.
Each scarf has been meticulously hand-sewn to a board, which is then floated within the frame, ensuring not a crease, or fold is present. Framing in such a way not only maintains the original integrity of the scarf but also enables it to be seamlessly removed and worn without any marks or damage.”
Available for purchase online or in store, from HKD $24,990.00
