Irresistible stars under the Christmas tree
The Mercedes-Benz brand has always stood for fine design that puts everyday life in the shade. Especially at Christmas the products from the Collection by the Stuttgart automotive manufacturer offer an exciting selection of gift ideas which express special appreciation for the recipient. Whether it is fine leather, sensuous room fragrances, practical technology, an exclusive picnic basket or a red speedster for a joyful occasion - the possibilities are virtually limitless and each product stands for unique, tangible quality.
Individually or as a set: the Leather jacket, the Gloves and the Cap in brown calfskin are the ideal gift for discerning gentlemen with a sense of style. Produced by Heinz Bauer Manufaktur for Mercedes-Benz, they impress with their unique quality, thoughtful details and high-quality workmanship. The classic, slightly tailored cut of the Leather jacket is given masculine sportiness by shoulder and sleeve pads as well as smocked inserts on the cuffs and seam. Perforated inserts on the front and back plus a removable collar accentuate the biker style. The jacket's lining is 51% cotton and 49% viscose and has an antibacterial silver finish. The high-quality lining is also printed with the historic star in a vintage look. The sleeve features the co-branding logo with the historic star. This jacket is a true favourite which will become even finer every time it is worn, thanks to the especially soft calfskin, which will develop a patina all its own over time.
The colour-coordinating Gloves in silky-soft nappa leather have a special look thanks to the historic Mercedes star and the embossed Heinz Bauer Manufaktur logo on the back of the hand. Thanks to the elaborate workmanship they offer maximum comfort and can be individually adjusted to suit the wearer with the width-adaptable leather strap on the wrist.
The icing on the cake of this exclusive leather series is the Cap, manufactured from the same calfskin and with the same lining as the jacket. A timeless accessory which combines comfort and coolness. High-quality details include decorative quilting on the front and the perforated leather beneath the peak. The Cap also has a fold-out draught-stop for the ears on windy days, ensuring optimum air circulation thanks to the incorporated eyelets. The embossed co-branding rounds off the design perfectly.
A fine gift idea for globetrotters comes in the form of the black Rucksack from the Mercedes-Benz Collection. With its many well-thought-out details it will make travelling a well-organised pleasure. Beneath the two-way zipper of the main compartment there are practical inside compartments such as a laptop compartment, pockets and a pen holder. In the zipped compartment on the front there is room for travel documents and other items which it is useful to have to hand. Comfort is ensured even on longer journeys thanks to the back section with its upholstered car seat quilting, adjustable straps with their Jacquard Laurel pattern and an additional carrying strap. If there is more luggage being taken on the journey, the rucksack can also be placed on a trolley suitcase. Thanks to the water-repellent polyester lamination with a matt finish, this pleasant companion also defies bad weather conditions. And the contents always stay dry.
A useful gadget for all those who travel a lot comes in the form of the Mercedes-Benz Power bank, which can be used to charge smartphones, tablets and laptops wherever no socket is available. It has a capacity of 5000 mAh and is fitted with a high-quality lithium-polymer battery and two USB ports. In its activated state the charging progress and current charging capacity are displayed via four LEDs. The elegantly minimalist design of the power bank in black plastic is given a fine finish by the silver-coloured Mercedes star on the front. The USB 3.0 stick in the form of an original vehicle key goes well with it. With its capacity of 32 GB it effortlessly takes larger quantities of documents, presentations or images and ensures that everything is always ready to be called up.
A break from everyday life and an atmosphere of soothing harmony - this is what you can give with the scented candles from Mercedes-Benz. "Cherry Blossom", the more feminine scent, exudes fruity and floral aromas. Beneath the top note of the cherry there is a heart of rose and the base consists of sandalwood and iris. Meanwhile wood and leather dominate the "Leather Woods" fragrance with its more masculine character. A tobacco/leather chord shapes the top note here, while the heart note is comprised of cedar wood and tonka bean, with ambergris and sandalwood forming the base note. Not only are the scented candles little olfactory masterpieces, they also radiate pure elegance visually. The round glass containers are double-lacquered in black. Square frames in metallic colours emphasise the fragrance and the Mercedes-Benz lettering, with pink selected for "Cherry Blossom" and copper for "Leather Woods". The scented candles feature a silver-coloured lid embossed with the star.
The Mercedes-Benz Picnic basket conjures up a taste of next summer under the Christmas tree. It is made of fine yet robust dark brown polyrattan and contains everything two people could wish for at an al fresco lunch: two four-piece cutlery sets, porcelain plates, coffee cups, juice glasses, a salt cellar and pepper pot plus two napkins and a tablecloth. All the pieces are secured with ties and hook-and-loop fasteners so that nothing can slip or fall out en route. A permanently integrated cooling bag ensures that food and beverages stay fresh and cold for a long time. The fasteners and handles on both sides are real leather. The carry straps in canvas with shoulder pads also ensure easy transportation. On one side of the basket there are lugs for a Picnic blanket which is available separately. The 140 x 200 cm blanket in soft polyester fleece with a beige herringbone pattern is the perfect base for relaxing on in the great outdoors. With its underside in water-repellent polyamide fabric the blanket always stays dry, even on a slightly damp meadow. When not in use it can be rolled up to a compact size with a strap and transported via a carry handle made of imitation leather.
If there is a happy event in the offing, the “Dessin” baby carriage Avantgarde in the new trendy colour hyacinth red is the perfect gift idea for parents-to-be. Manufactured by the German pram specialist Hartan, the Mercedes-Benz baby carriage offers everything the baby and parents could wish for. The stylish design, with 5-twin-spoke rims which take their inspiration from AMG, goes hand in hand with top safety and maximum comfort. Air-chamber tyres and the telescopic handlebar make pushing the pram child's play on any terrain. The reversible seat unit is flexibly adjustable for both the back inclination and the height of the footrest and it features a folding soft top with a sun visor and climate zone. As an option there is a premium carrying bag for the first few months. This can also be mounted on the frame with one click and is configured to babies' ergonomic requirements right down to the last detail.
