One of the most luxurious aspects of living in Southern California’s stunning upscale communities is access to some of the world’s finest and most renowned brands. This gives area home owners year-round access to fine goods and products, but the time of year when this really matters is during the holiday season when shoppers are desperately scrambling to find the perfect gifts for their loved ones.
If you’ve found yourself shopping for the one person who seems to have it all this season, here are a few luxury gift ideas to ease your stress. These gifts range from adventurous to simple, but all are luxurious and sure to brighten anyone’s holiday season.
All that glitters
No matter what the occasion, telling that special someone you love them with a diamond or two is always a winner. This season, jewelry designer-to-the-stars Harry Winston is releasing a collection of diamond-studded jewelry that is evocative of the designer’s notorious propensity for anonymity. Aptly named Secrets, the collection features 29 exquisite statement pieces, any of which is sure to put a smile on an adoring face. Many of the pieces feature a splash of color as well as hidden compartments or designs that transform into multiple options to wear allude to the incredible craftsmanship and flair for the unexpected that Winston is known for.
Nothing says luxury like whisking away a few of your loved ones for a trip of a lifetime. While this may take a few weeks of planning, you can begin now and hammer out the details once you get everyone on board and situated in their schedules. Plan to go somewhere and do something out of the ordinary in order to make this trip one everyone will remember fondly for many years. Take a ride in a hot-air ballon through Cappadocia, Turkey, zip-line through the Amazon rainforest or find your inner peace at a yoga sanctuary in the Himalayas. The world is your oyster, take advantage of all of the wonderful adventures that await.
Impress the impossible
Sometimes shopping for those with impeccable style and taste seems impossible because nothing seems quite good enough. If you’re encountering this problem consider purchasing something that brings them to the very root of design theory. “The Impossible Collection of Design” is the epitome of a coffee table book that does just that. Written by Frédéric Chambre and published by Assouline books, this work exhaustively outlines 100 of the most influential design pieces of the last century. The layout and writing unfold like a commemorative documentary film and the luxurious presentation of the hand-bound, oversized book in a clamshell case will evoke strong emotions for the treasures that lay inside.
