Highsnobiety’s gift guide is updated monthly, bringing you a round-up of our favorite products we’ve spotted over the past few weeks.
Though we all like to indulge in a little retail therapy for ourselves, dropping those friends- and family-outshining gifts on loved ones is a feeling like no other. But there’s a fine art to copping gifts, with a delicate balance to be struck between personality fit, price, and avoiding the mortifying outcome of being OTT.
Our curators have trawled the internet, as well as our favorite stores, to bring you the gifts of all shapes and sizes that we’ve spotted throughout September. From high fashion labels trying their hand at something a little different to the bijou brands offering unexpected gems, copping one of these gifts is sure to get you in the good books of those you care about this fall.
Scroll on for our September gift haul.
Highsnobiety Issue 19
OK granted, we may be slightly biased, but you’d be hard pushed to find many gifts better than this for $11 right now. Featuring interviews with Michael B. Jordan and Blondey McCoy, who also happen to grace our two alternate covers, our latest issue dropped this week and is packed with hidden goodies.
Wacko Maria Pin
At the budget end of the September gift round-up is this pin by Japanese brand Wacko Maria. Whether it’s the missing piece in a present or a way to shame via its “The Guilt Parties” branding, we’ll leave that up to you.
Chinatown Market Tennis Balls
Everyone’s favorite smiley-touting label Chinatown Market dabbles in the unexpected once again with these branded tennis balls. A perfect gift for the sports and streetwear fans.
Brain Dead Candle
With fall now here, making those pads as winter-friendly as possible is important. And nothing says you’re better off staying in than a soul-warming candle. Brain dead’s spin on this home essential is good for the soul and the wallet.
A24 x Joya Candle
From indie film production studio A24, which happens to have one of the sickest merch sites around, comes this season-appropriate candle. Part of a collection of movie genre candles, the all-black sci-fi edition is built for winter.
Noah Tote Bag
A Highsnobiety favorite, NOAH is one of New York’s best exports. Back to school season may have just left us, but it’s not too late to take the weight off their shoulders (or put it on) with this book-ready bag from NOAH.
Evian by Virgil Abloh Water Bottle
At it again with the ” ” tagging, Virgil Abloh this time turns his hand to this planet-friendly reusable water bottle, in collaboration with Evian. It’s a piece that they won’t know they needed until it’s theirs — the best type of gift.
$50 – $150
Human Made Cap
Human Made is another Highsnobiety favorite, and this standout cap, featuring tiger graphic, is one of our highlight accessory pieces from the brand’s current output.
The North Face Traction Mule
As the mulement continues (led by our very own Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon), some pretty fire backless footwear options have popped up. This mule from The North Face looks like a sleeping bag for your feet, and as temperatures dip, who wouldn’t want that?
Native Union Wireless Charger
We all long for a wire-free existence, don’t we? Take the cable chaos out of your giftee’s life with this wireless charging pad. They’ll thank you for it.
A.P.C. x Brain Dead Wallet
From the recent collab between A.P.C. and Brain Dead, this money holder boasts a logo that combines graphics from both brands. Pieces from this drop probably won’t hang around for long, so we’d get copping if you want some gift glory this fall.
Stüssy Ceramic Vase
Wait, Stüssy is dropping vases now? This is what our monthly gift haul is all about, and is sure to be something your loved one didn’t expect. Perfect for brightening up pads during fall.
COMME des GARÇONS Wallet
CdG accessories are a particular favorite of ours, and are always a good shout for the brand lovers out there. This black wallet, boasting bold COMME des GARÇONS branding, happens to come in a fall-ready color too.
Takashi Murakami Flower Plush
Straight from the MoMa Design Store, this Murakami plush is a couch-ready take on the contemporary artist’s famous motif. Bring some sunshine into someone’s home this fall by gifting them this smile-inducing piece.
Jacquemus Neck Pouch
Jacquemus can seemingly do no wrong. One of the most talked-about pieces of recent Fashion Weeks was the miniature, ready-to-hold-your-lipstick bags the brand dropped. The more human-sized shoulder bags are a more sensible purchase, though, in our opinion.
