Whether you are on the waiting list Hermes Birkin Bag, lust after an understated Hermes Kelly Bag, or are just one of many people who admire the brand from afar, it may seem that you’ll never own anything from Hermes. Yet, there are some great Hermes gift ideas to consider!
Hermes is an expensive, luxury brand, and the word ‘affordable’ (as it pertains to Hermes) means anything under $500. While that is still a lot of money, there are some great Hermes gifts to give and receive that are under that price point if you are looking to add Hermes in your home. It is a great way to build up a Hermes reputation with a sales associate. Yet, more importantly, it is a great way to give (or get) a gift of high quality. So here are ten Hermes gift ideas to consider!
Hermes Blank Writing Pad
Hermes has printed notebooks in several sizes with colorful covers. They range from $70-$150 and are great to stash in a bag for shopping lists, or for a teen who wants to jot down homework in a stylish way.
Hermes Toutenpapier Tatoo Color Coasters
In addition to jewelry and fragrances, Hermes also has a home department with affordable starter pieces. A simple set of coasters for $100 or a set of placemats for about $150 are great options. Coasters are always appreciated and functional. Whether for water on a nightstand, or a set for company, they contain a pack of 12 and come in bold patterns. The placemats can be used for the table, but can also serve as furniture cozies too.
Hermes Coffee Mug
Having your morning coffee has never been so sophisticated! Whether for a cup o’joe or to store pens and pencils on your desk, Hermes has several coffee mugs to suit any decor or beverage. Most range in price from $125-$200, depending on pattern and size.
Hermes Scarf Twilly
A single Hermes Twilly Scarf is about $170 and is made of fine silk. Whether you wrap one around the handle of a bag, around your neck, wrist or ponytail, they come in fun colors and patterns. When wrapped in a beautiful orange box and tied with a Hermes ribbon, it’s a fabulous gift for under $200. Add the Mors Scarf ring ($200) in permabrass or silver, like in the photo, for a stylish addition.
Hermes makes some fabulous scents. However, the fragrance line to note for a gift is the compose your own scent line. The ‘Compose Your Own Set’ contains four Hermessences – Rose Ikebana, Vetiver Tonka, Ambre Narguile, Poivre Samarcande. The set of four is about $175. Each scent is sensational on its own, but it is fun to mix and match them to customize a scent.
Hermes Mosaique Gold Tray
Hermes makes some beautiful trays that are perfect for trinkets, jewelry or watches. It could also be used for a candle tray. The small model in gold is my favorite because it can suit many tastes and decors. Plus, it can be used for almost anything. Being under $200, it will be a lasting gift.
Ulysse PM Notebook cover
Its seems silly to consider pen and paper these days. At the same time, there is something decadent about it. Hermes makes an Ulysse PM Notebook cover in many colors, and there are different options for paper inserts. With the cover and page inserts, it will cost about $300, but a fun way to jot inspirations, thoughts, or keep track your daily schedule.
The Hermes Bastia is popular among Hermes lovers, but also great for gift giving to those who are new to the brand. The Bastia is a small leather good that is designed for holding coins. However, many repurpose to hold other items like earphones or gum! It comes in many different leather colors and, at times, different types of leathers too. The price point is about $350.
Another popular small leather good from Hermes is the Hermes Calvi. The Calvi is designed for holding credit cards, but is also great for holding tissues or business cards. It comes in many different leathers and leather colors. The price point, like the Bastia, is about $350.
Hermes Eclipse Ring
While most people think ‘leather’ when the name Hermes is uttered, the brand also has a large jewelry collection. While many can be pricey, there is a line of fine silver options that won’t break the bank. One to note is the Eclipse ring. It’s a simple and chunky silver ring with a perforated H that screams Hermes in a good way. It is priced at about $500 and works for both men and women.
Whether getting a gift for yourself or someone else, these are curated, couture gifts that many will love.
