Luxury living: A simple luxury gift guide, with fabulous ideas for the person who has everything
Luxury gift guide
Luxury gifts should be extravagant and impressive. Here are a few great suggestions that are sure to wow the recipient:
PROFESSIONAL-QUALITY ESPRESSO MACHINE
You can find espresso/cappuccino machines that are extraordinary in both design and performance, for those with the most refined and discriminating tastes. Some of these user-friendly machines can make up to a hundred of cups of coffee on a daily basis. They can grind the beans, automatically measure the doses, brew perfect shots of espresso, and more… all at the touch of a button! This is a great gift for the home or office. In fact, there are some units that automatically dump the used coffee grinds into a separate internal container, so that all you have to do is throw them out. There are even machines on the market that are capable of frothing the milk for you, one of the most difficult aspects of making cappuccinos at home. This is a fabulous wedding, birthday, anniversary, or holiday gift for a gourmet coffee lover, or for someone who loves entertaining!
SUMMIT GUARDIAN 9’ POOL TABLE
Sure, you can buy a regular pool table for a couple hundred dollars, but the design wouldn’t be nearly as exquisite as the Summit Guardian. This table is crafted from solid Honduras mahogany, and you can customize it to fit the tastes of the lucky recipient. Choose from red mahogany, rich walnut, cinnamon, and white wash stains. There are 31 color options for the cloth. This is more than just a pool table – it adds an elegant decorative touch to any home.
TIFFANY DIAMOND JEWELRY
Diamonds are still a girl’s best friend, and nothing says luxury like a blue gift box from Tiffany & Co. There is something magical about opening those elegantly-presented little boxes, and your gift will be loved before it is even seen. Diamond pendants are a great choice, and there are so many styles to choose from. There are hot-air balloon pendants, anchor pendants (just like Sarah Jessica Parker wore on Sex and the City), tulip pendants, monograms, and much more. They also have an exquisite collection of diamond bracelets. The X line bracelet, which is part of Tiffany’s Victoria Collection, is a stunning selection. They also have matching X line earrings, comprised of four marquise diamonds. It will cost you a pretty penny, but, hey… she’s worth it.
STATE-OF-THE-ART WINE CELLAR
For wine lovers, the ultimate in luxury would be a temperature controlled, state-of-the art wine cellar unit. The EuroCave Quad Comfort 5000, for example, can hold up to 1000 bottles of wine, so it will be able to satisfy your gift recipient’s entire collection, and leave (unless they are record-breaking enthusiasts) room for many more. Each unit is individually crafted in a 30-step process, using French styling. It is quiet, and will not vibrate. Make sure you buy a bottle of expensive wine to go along with this toast-worthy luxury gift.
HARPS FOR THE HOME
Harps are elegant and beautiful, and your gift recipient doesn’t need to know anything about playing one to have one as a decorative and exquisite conversation piece in their home. The Scalvi Scolpita is an artfully designed harp with a walnut finish. It was created by renowned sculptor, Richard Graham. If you are looking for an even more luxurious harp, check out the Lyon and Healy Style 26 Harp. The Lyon and Healy Style 26 was designed in the early 1900s, and it combines Gothic revival and Renaissance styles. It has a delicate floral design, and gold accents.
