This holiday season isn’t just all about Christmas trees and mountains of snow. For its latest Gift Giving Collection, Gucci sets the stage in unconventional fashion: aboard a cruise liner to a getaway of sun, sand and palm trees.

Keeping to its tropical theme, Gucci has released an eclectic play on two of its most iconic motifs and patterns. Over a series of collectable small leather goods, handbags and shoes, Gucci presents for the first time the house’s original Floral prints digitally transposed over the contemporary GG Supreme leather canvas. Thanks to this, no two bags or shoes are ever the same — a truly unique gift to be treasured.

Gucci will also be releasing festive packaging exclusive to the Gift Giving Collection, with boxes painting holographic scenes of palm trees. Shoes come in matching dark green and light green pouches as well.

Getting in the mood for shopping? We’ve narrowed down our favourite picks from this festive collection. P.S. You might just find some gifts for yourself too!

Perfect for the woman on the go: the GG Flora small bucket bag has a dedicated pocket for smartphones. The bucket bag is available with yellow leather trims.

The festive GG Floral prints are certainly fitting with the shoulder bag’s bamboo handle — an iconic detail from Gucci’s archives since the late 1940s. The shoulder bags see detachable straps as well for a more flexible style.

The classic shoulder bag gets white leather trims and hand-painted edges, the perfect frame for the GG Flora print. We also love how spacious it is, with double gussets lined with microfiber.

One can never have enough cosmetic pouches. These pouches are available in medium and large sizes, each with interior pockets for small items. The GG Flora textile is also lined with a strip of red leather to add a little pop of colour.

Originally sporting just the GG Supreme canvas, these classic wallets and card cases are now embossed with floral prints for the 2019 Gift Giving Collection. The collection typically offers red- and beige-leather lined wallets.

This one’s for all the sneakerheads out there. The festive edition of this Gucci classic sees red trim: a perfect match with the red and green metallic leather detail on the back of these shoes.
