Whether you’re feeling flush or just want to give something special to that special person in your life (‘you’ is a perfectly acceptable choice), this week’s Hypebeast Wishlist has you covered.

We’ve put together a list of six big gesture gifts that might break the bank a little, but are guaranteed to both put and keep a smile on the face of whoever’s on the receiving end. 

You can shop the complete Hypebeast Wishlist edit directly via the links below.

Bang & Olufsen A5 Spaced Aluminium

Can you call a speaker ‘beautiful’? Well, Bang & Olufsen’s new A5 Spaced Aluminium speaker is the odds-on favorite to win the speaker beauty pageant – if there is one – and it sounds just as good as it looks. Its looks are inspired by retro basket radios and it’s made from 3,500 aluminum discs that are finished by hand at the brand’s Danish factory, a combination of heritage design and modern material play that makes for a timeless piece on anyone’s shelf. It can be plugged into mains power via USB-C, but also has a built-in battery for up to 12 hours of playback. It even has a Qi wireless charging pad built in for your phone, helping to make sure you don’t miss a beat.

Joy Resolve Barisieur Tea & Coffee Alarm Clock

The Barisieur (White)
$450 USD

Tea or coffee? With or without milk? This transformer-of-a-coffee-machine from Joy Resolve can do it all. Add your favorite brew, choose your settings, and fall asleep safe in the knowledge you’ll be waking up to a freshly brewed cup of joy in the morning. It’s designed in London and its creators claim the milk stays fresh thanks to “the world’s smallest mini-fridge” – if that fact wasn’t enough to convince you, it’s small enough to fit on a bedside table and (almost certainly) will elevate your morning routine.

LOEWE

Convertible Calfskin Backpack
$3,150 USD

If you’re looking for a functional multi-purpose bag that will last a lifetime, look no further – this backpack from LOEWE might just be what you’re after. It can be worn on your back, shoulder, or hand-carried with the top handle, fits a 13 inch laptop or tablet, and is made from a supple calskin leather that will age beautifully over time. It’s not cheap (nothing on this list is), but it has a simple elegance that makes it wearable in almost any context.

Creed Men’s 5-Piece 10ml Discovery Set

Picking a perfume for someone else can be quite daunting – so, why not give them a choice? Creed has been making perfumes since 1760 and the brand’s 5-Piece 10ml Discovery Set features some of its most iconic fragrances. Our money is on Aventus, but Green Irish Tweed and Silver Mountain Water are close seconds. They also do a women’s set, too, but we’re not judging – a scent’s a scent, you do you.

Honda Motocompacto

Motocompacto
$995 USD

Who doesn’t want a briefcase that turns into a scooter?! Honda’s Motocompacto is one of the coolest things we’ve seen this year. It’s an electric scooter that can reach speeds of 15mph (an average city cyclist’s commuting speed) with around 12 miles of range per charge. It’s foldable, stackable, weighs only 41 lb, and charging it is as simple as plugging it into the wall. So, while it won’t get you very far very fast, it makes for a pretty unique gift and has to be one of the funner ways you can zip to the grocery store for that extra pack of whatever this holiday – just don’t forget to pack a bag. (Wait, what?)

Moncler x Palm Angels Pentaflake Long Down Jacket

$2,680 USD

Chances are you’ve started to feel the shift in the weather – the days are getting shorter and there’s a chill in the air. But fear not, Moncler and Palm Angels are here to help. This mood-boosting yellow Pentaflake down jacket from the pair’s latest collaboration is crafted from nylon and has a longue saison lining for a super warm, lightweight cold weather staple. It has enough pockets for all your winter essentials, a huge hood that hugs your head, and adjustable cuffs to keep the wind out whether or not you’re wearing gloves.
