With the festive season drawing ever nearer, everyone is surely wrapped up in a flurry of Christmas shopping. If you’re at a loss for something meaningful to give to those nearest and dearest to you, though, fear not as Montblanc, the rightly-renowned German manufacturer of luxury watches, writing implements and accessories, has curated a special selection of elegant gift ideas to suit even the most discerning among your inner circle.
For calligraphy-loving sophisticates, Montblanc offers several stunning, beautifully-designed collections of writing instruments. First up, there’s the limited-edition Walt Disney Collection – created as an homage to legendary storyteller, Walt Disney – which will surely inspire writers both young and old to pursue their literary dreams. Then there’s the Meisterstück Calligraphy Collection. Inspired by the diverse cultures of our world, it aims to elevate the art of hand lettering through its innovative new nib design, the Flexi Nib.
Inspiring a new generation of space explorers, meanwhile, is Montblanc’s StarWalker Collection, which marks the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing. Available in ballpoint, fineliner and fountain-nib versions, the 12 new pens all pay homage to the intense experience of space exploration. Here, the translucent blue cap-dome dome calls to mind nothing so much as planet Earth rising gracefully above the lunar horizon.
Sophisticated jetsetters, meanwhile, will surely enjoy any of the countless travel accessories on offer this festive season. Take, for instance, the Meisterstück Urban luggage collection, with its bold urban appeal, or the more rugged Montblanc Extreme 2.0 line, which boasts an innovative blend of carbon fibre, leather and metal for the ultimate travel durability. If nostalgic appeal is what you’re looking for, there’s even a retro ’80s-inspired Meisterstück Soft Grain Mix Tapes Capsule Collection, replete with cassette tape motifs proudly printed on its fascia.
Haute horology enthusiasts are also catered for, with several gorgeous models, ranging from the cutting-edge Summit 2 Golden and Brown Color Steel smartwatches to the Heritage 1858 line of vintage explorer-motifed timepieces on offer for both male and female collectors.
If that’s still not enough to round out your holiday gift list, there’s also a veritable treasure trove of leather goods, a digitised notepad in the form of The New Augmented Paper + and even an EXPLORER fragrance to choose from as well. Merry Christmas!
