SIZE MATTERS. SOMETIMES.
The childlike joy of knowing there’s a big, beautifully-wrapped parcel waiting for you under the tree has no parallel. Sometimes, it’s just fun to tear the paper from a sizeable box containing a Gucci Dionysus, Saint Laurent Sac du Jour or Fendi Peekaboo. If you’re particularly busy in the run-up to Christmas (and who isn’t?) one meaningful, carefully considered present will cause you less stress and be just as impactful as multiple small ones. Why we equate size with superiority is a mystery (not), but we’re not necessarily talking about the physical dimensions of a gift here. The mammoth effort you put into sourcing a gift, a hefty price-tag (cheeky) and the huge amounts of time you spent thinking about it can all contribute to the theoretical ‘size’ of a present. And jewellery, watches, fragrances and small, very, very fine leather goods are all proof that big doesn’t necessarily mean better.
