Reach for the top shelf when completing your holiday shopping this season. Here are our choice luxury picks for the most discerning women, men and couples in your life.
The Fancy Flat Iron
Why buy just any flat iron when you could gift one that's fully encrusted with 3,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals? Amika's limited-edition The Dazzler Straightening Iron ($950) from Sephora features tourmaline-infused ceramic floating plates to create the sleekest of strands, and comes in a very cool white, faux-snake-skin box.
The Luxe Fragrance Collection
Any EDP guru would be delighted to receive a single fragrance from EB Florals, so giving them the entire range via the EB Florals Luxury Collection Box ($2,985) may very well put you in the "best gifter" category for years to come. EB Florals is named after Eric Buterbaugh, an Oklahoma-born designer whose career began with Gianni Versace in the late '80s. In 1999, he established a floral business, which has inspired his fragrance collection. He works with a roster of A-listers, including Valentino, Chanel, Ferragamo, Cartier, and the British royal family.
The beautiful set, available from Saks Fifth Avenue, features all eight EB Florals fragrances and comes with a handwritten, personalized note from perfumer Eric Buterbaugh.
The Fur Cuff
Well-curated accessories are key in a true fashionista's wardrobe and she'll stand out from the crowd with Ferragamo's Fur and Leather Bracelet ($370). It features decadently soft fur atop black leather and a gold-plated closure with Gancini detail.
The High-End Skincare Set
When it comes to skincare, 3LAB reigns supreme as an innovative, science-based brand and will impress the beauty connoisseur who diligently researches every product in their skincare regimen. The 3LAB Luxury Essentials
($860) includes Perfect Sunscreen, Perfect Cleansing Foam, Perfect Cleansing Scrub, Super "h" Serum, Healthy Glow Lip Balm, WW Eye Cream, M Cream, Anti-Aging Cream, and Individual Perfect Mask – all tucked into a glamorous vanity case. This indulgent set is available from Barneys.
The Dapper Shaving Kit
Keep him well-groomed with The Art of Shaving's most luxurious offering — the Noir Shaving Set ($850). The strikingly handsome ensemble comes with the Noir 5 Blade Razor, Noir Silvertip Shaving Brush, and Noir Stand. That scratchy stubble will never be a problem again.
The Decorative Gaming Table
If his style is sleek, minimalist, and refined, Interlude's Home Miranda Acrylic Backgammon Table ($2,499) from Neiman Marcus is bound to be a hit on Christmas morning. It's handcrafted with acrylic, metal, and glass and makes for a wonderful conversation starter and entertainment piece.
The Statement Dry Bar
No man's home is complete without a standout dry bar and Jonathan Adler is the perfect designer to consult for such a piece. His Delphine bar ($2,995), from Neiman Marcus, stuns with its antique mirror facade, polished brass base and knob detail, and turquoise lacquered interior. It comes with four adjustable tempered-glass shelves, two sliding drawers, and four wire-bound shelves for glassware.
The Style-Savvy Scarf
Keep him warm this winter with a scarf that's as cozy and soft as it stylish. This Cashmere Gancini Scarf ($390) from Ferragamo's fall/winter 2017 collection is made in Italy with 100% cashmere. It comes in a blue/denim or black/brown option and bears the signature Ferragamo script.
The Precious Serving Tray
Whether you're gifting a young couple, newlyweds, or established duo, allow them to entertain in the chicest fashion with this natural Agate Quartz Serving Board ($498) from Anthropologie trimmed with brass plating. Ornate yet understated, it will elevate whatever food or drink it holds to a new level of luxe.
The Designer Chess Board
The Jonathan Adler Lucite Chess Set ($795), sold at Saks Fifth Avenue, will earn plenty of attention. Even better? It will also provide hours of entertainment throughout the years. Made from Lucite (a sleek and glamorous acrylic glass that's indestructible), it comes in an elegant black and gray pairing or splashy orange and yellow.
The Decorative Wine Opener
If you're shopping for a couple who loves to indulge in wine, this RBT Tabletop Corkscrew ($149.99) will be adored. Its sleek acacia wood, zinc, and stainless-steel visage looks handsome in any style of kitchen and, most importantly, allows for easy bottle opening. Throw in a bottle of fine wine to make this gift, available at Bloomingdale's, complete.
The Tasteful Home Accent
This year Kendra Scott branched out from jewelry by offering a range of stunning home décor. True to the brand's spirit, the collection is made from natural stones, including agate, geode, pyrite, pearl, and amethyst. We love the Rectangular Filigree Box in Green Agate ($250) — perfect for housing jewelry, photographs, or trinkets — and the Stone Slab Picture Frame ($195), which you can gift with a heartwarming photograph. Both are sold at Neiman Marcus.
