Good things come in small packages. Case in point: US-based audio company Klipsch’s T5 True Wireless Earphones, which just launched in Hong Kong. Packing plenty of power in these lightweight studs, the in-ear Bluetooth speakers feature the brand’s newly designed oval ear tips, advanced acoustic engineering, call-enabled microphones, premium materials and sleek design. The special holiday edition ‘Triple Black’ charging case is sure to thrill stylish audiophiles this Christmas.
Whether you wish to escape the hustle and bustle this holiday season with expeditions to the countryside, or to kick start your health goals early, a gift from iconic British bike manufacturer Brompton Bikes is sure to thrill any adrenaline junkie or fitness-minded man. The new Explore edition features a custom 28L roll-top bag, a special edition spares pouch, and a 6-speed group set with reduced gearing which allows riders to tackle challenging routes – not to mention an extremely lightweight form at 11kg that is foldable within 20 seconds.
Tipplers will delight in receiving award-winning Scottish whisky brand Highland Park’s newest (and peatiest) release: the Valfather, a beautifully rich and smokey conclusion to the brand’s three-part Viking Legend series. Boasting a layered profile of creamy vanilla crème brûlée with toasted cedar wood and warming paprika, perfectly finished off with sweet notes of crisp apple and fragrant pear, the whisky looks just as good in your cellar featuring stunning gold-embellished packaging by Danish designer Jim Lyngvild.
It's not easy staying stylish when travelling – so help your special one out with a gift from luxury luggage brand Tumi, which just released a limited edition reimagining of their Alpha Bravo collection. The Sheppard Deluxe Brief Pack and modern Nathan Expandable Backpack have been redesigned with smooth and refined black leather and adorned with silver accents, making these versatile styles ideal for both work and play.
Instead of a wrapped gift, why not switch it up this year and treat your beloved to a fresh dapper cut? The aptly name Handsome Factory is a beloved destination for men’s grooming, providing quality cuts, wet shaves, beard trimming and quality grooming products for the modern gentleman. Better yet, founder J Brian Siswojo is bringing the authentic barber services to IFC’s Lane Crawford with a men’s grooming pop-up this holiday season.
