Lastly, add flair to complete the festive look with sparkling accessories from Majorica, and Swarovski.

Achieve a classic dapper look with pieces from the newest additions to the already-impressive roster of menswear at Rustan’s. Faherty, Onia, and Tailor Vintage effortlessly combine sophistication with modern trends to create the perfect mix of timeless yet glamorous fits. For everyday professional elegance, Hackett, Pedro del Hierro, and more have got you covered.

The Gift of Fun

Nothing like healthy skin to complete a look. In the new normal, effective, top skin care you can apply at home is a must! Anti-aging products like the new Clarins Super Restorative collection, La Prairie Skin Caviar Harmony, L’Occitane Immortelle, or Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Gel-Cream will be a great surprise for your mom, sister, or friend, or maybe a great treat for yourself!

Toys for the big boys? You’ll find something in Rustan’s offerings. Bring a piece of childhood back with a Montblanc x Naruto wallet, something fun, luxurious, and elegant that can last for years. On the other hand, the Discovery Shop and Prizmic and Brill offer bespoke pieces that can decorate and add personality to the library or home office.

Deciding what to give children for Christmas can be quite challenging, so why not see what they like in person? How? Ask Santa! Start things off by meeting him and let the whole family, especially the kids, feel the spirit of the season. For that fun and mind-developing toy, explore the toy section with exciting treats from Crayola, Lego, and Little Tykes. On the other hand, you can dress up your little princess with a pretty or magical dress from Laila and Lyra!

Share a piece of home luxury with Rustan’s wide selection of products from the kitchen to the living area. Let Christofle and Noritake dinnerware headline your tablescape with colors of white, blue, and gold, while home decor from Lladro, and Lalique.

For coffee drinkers, maybe a coffee upgrade is just the thing to give! Experience great coffee from a Breville, De’Longhi, Nespresso, or SMEG machine.
