From time to time, we like to take a look at some of the lesser-known products that the world’s biggest brands stock on their websites. From pencils to flasks to wine accouterments, Hermes has always excelled at these nifty little pieces, and the brand certainly has a following that’s dedicated enough to snap up whatever it is it manufactures in order to round out their collections. Many of these pieces also make a great entry point for new customers because of their relatively low price point, compared to, say, a Birkin.
Other times, these unexpected pieces are a tad more extravagant: the $2,000 rocking horse baby gift, pictured above, for example. Or a coloring book, labeled as appropriate for both children and adults! Did you know Hermes made a coloring book? I didn’t, and yet, it exists. And really, that’s only scratching the surface – check out ten of our favorite finds from deep in the belly of Hermes.com, after the jump.
The Hermes Les 4 Mondes Coloring Book is perhaps my favorite find from my Hermes site-digging. From the provided images, it looks like the perfect thing to give to a kid if you’re trying to turn him or her into a haughty French surrealist. $140 via Hermes.
Asininely expensive scented candles aren’t much of a luxury oddity, so at first I moved right on past the Hermes Fleurs d’Indienne Candle – until I realized that it’s NOT SCENTED. It’s in a pretty cup, though… $280 via Hermes.
What Hermes lacks in scented candles, it makes up for in Hermes Vetiver Scented Drawer Liners. That way, even your undies can smell like a the vaunted French luxury house. $50 via Hermes.
And of course, the Hermes Rocking Horse. It’s made of carved beech and rings up at $2000 – quite the baby gift. $2000 via Hermes.
The Hermes Elements Poker Set comes with 300 Hermes poker chips encased in a box of calf leather and sycamore. It is perhaps the ultimate dude gift. $6100 via Hermes.
Naturally, though, you can’t play Hermes poker without the Hermes Poker Cards. $85 via Hermes.
I am being completely serious when I say that the Hermes Elephant King Beach Towel is adorable and I kind of want one. $550 via Hermes.
On the other hand, if you’d rather go for a ride than spend a day on the beach, the Hermes Tic Tac Spurs might be more your speed. $910 via Hermes.
The Hermes Groom Stable Bucket is ostensibly intended to be used for equestrian maintenance, but I’m betting it would look great if reappropriated as an interior design piece. $750 via Hermes.
Of course, no self-respecting Master of the Universe ends his day without a Cohiba firmly extinguished in his Hermes Paperole Porcelain Ashtray. $650 via Hermes.
