What lies within a gift box is a question of joyful anticipation; all the better if the box is orange. This season, Hermès has dreamed up two new whimsical gift-box sets. The first contains a memory game, incorporating cards marked with beautiful historical drawings from the personal collection of founder Émile Hermès. Another box houses 14 colourful notebooks of various sizes that, when removed from the container and arranged together, form the pattern of a Tohu Bohu scarf from the Hermès Tout en Carré line. To give or to receive, that is the question.
