The most famous birth of a person would be of the infant Jesus. Coinciding with that historical event was the sighting of the Star of Bethlehem, also known as the Christmas Star, that guided three wise men to the manger to present Mary and Joseph with gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Now Gucci might not be giving us gifts of gold, and there might not be any correlation between the Christmas Star and their Bees and Stars line, but one can’t help but to feel a tinge of familiarity between the two.
And Gucci’s reign on the world has been unstoppable this past year. We were blessed with #Guccy, an entire homewares line, and for the bondage enthusiasts that live among us, a pair of handcuffs from Tom Ford’s era at the Italian luxury house. So it would make sense that to wrap up this year of Guccification in line with the festive season, Alessandro Michele is gifting us with variety of apparel, shoes, and small leather goods that bear the iconic Gucci bee motif and what do you know, a star.
Yes, we know, there are less than four days to Christmas, and you’ve probably already done your shopping by way of our many, many, Christmas gift guides. But just in case you need to get a last minute gift for your boss, or a second present for that special man in your life, here are five accessories from Alessandro Michele’s Bees and Stars collection for Gucci that would be perfect underneath the tree.

The Gucci Bee is an iconic symbol that has stood the test of time. And it is seen here in this chic leather messenger combined with the star motif. You can wear it in different ways with the detachable nylon strap, either by slinging it on your back or carrying it like a clutch.
Arm candy doesn’t have to refer to the date you’re bringing for that social event. A simple quartz watch with a stunning bee and stars face will be sure to draw all the eyeballs to your wrist. With water resistance up to 50m, you don’t need to take it out when you go for a dip in your penthouse’s infinity pool.
For that person in your life who is always digging through their pockets or bags for that one key, give them the gift of convenience with this leather key case that can hold up to six keys (that’s one for every holiday home).
