Buying gifts can be a bit of a minefield as trying to work out what your loved ones actually want and need is never as easy as it sounds. One thing that you're almost certain to get a good reception from, however, is something luxurious. We all enjoy being treated to something fancy, right?
This can range from buying someone the finest in artisan watchmaking (and a hefty dent in your pocket) or more simple items crafted with expert care such as luxury soaps or socks. Either way, the key is to treat someone to something that's more lavish than what they would usually buy themself.
Check out our favorite luxury gifts below and add a touch of splendor to your holiday period.
