If you’re having trouble figuring out what to purchase for your loved ones this holiday season, the answer is probably not as complex as you may think. Maybe the answer is right under your nose.
The saying “there is beauty in the every day” is said for a reason. Instead of searching far and wide for some next-level knick-knack they probably won’t use in the next six months, why not give them an elevated version of something they use every day? After all, the best holiday gifts are all about the necessary unnecessary.
For example, think of that special someone who travels often, who constantly runs through sleeping masks. Why not gift them a Louis Vuitton sleeping mask? They’ll no doubt cherish that and use it forever. Bottega Veneta has a tissue box case that will lift up your space, instead of having that branded tissue box ruin you and your home’s feng shui. Mont Blanc is known for making beautiful pens, but it also makes beautiful notebooks that will for sure become a staple in anyone’s life that prefers to write their thoughts down on paper.
For more opulent everyday item options see the list below.
Louis Vuitton Sleep Mask
“If you know someone that uses sleeping masks regularly, this ultra-luxurious take from Louis Vuitton is a no-brainer. Let’s just hope they’re not the type of person to lose things easily.”
Tiffany & Co. Table Tennis Paddles
“The best part about these Tiffany & Co. Table Tennis Paddles is that they don’t even need to be gifted to someone who plays… they are good enough to just sit there. Sporting goods are the new home accessories anyway.”
Hermès Bridge Cards
“If Hermès is making playing cards, then you know we have reached the summit of frivolous living. Here is the only deck of cards you will ever need.”
“Knowing your drink will be consumed from some of the world’s finest crystal really makes the difference. Even if it’s to know that you are allowed to raise your pinky when lifting the glass to your mouth.”
Avion Reserva 44 Tequila
“AVIÓN Reserva 44 is an extra Extra Añejos tequila — and if you didn’t know, that means it’s some of the most aged around. In fact, this one spends 43 months in an oak barrel, giving it huge depths of flavor. It won Best in Class and the Platinum Award at the 2019 SIP Awards for a reason. It tastes like luxury.”
“Coziness has no price, and knows no limits. Get involved with this RHUDE throw and feel the horse power.”
“Candles are and forever will be a solid gift, but understand that there are levels to this. The Baobab iteration shown above is the final boss of all candle gifts.”
Devambez Rolling Papers
“For that chic stoner who deserves/wants to have their papers be just as world-class as their flowers, Devambez is the only answer.”
Bottega Veneta Tissue Box
“You no longer have to have a tissue box ruining the vibe of your table. Bottega Veneta has made a cover that will make your sickest days a mood.”
Brunello Cucinelli Domino Set
“Just knowing your dominos were made using artisanal practices will make every game feel like a win… even if you lost.”
“We all work hard and deserve to sit down on something substantial and stylish. Gucci has saved us all with the release of its Chiavari Chair.”
“Writing your thoughts down is an intimate act, meaning they should be held in a notebook that is worthy. To treat your thoughts with the utmost respect, look no further than this iteration from Montblanc.”
