The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.

Mesmerising sparkling lights. Time off work. Festive cheer. And most importantly, happy gatherings and celebrations with friends and family. The delightful end of the year season is fast approaching.

For many, the holiday season can also be one of the most stressful time of the year.

It’s the same conundrum every year: gift shopping for your loved ones and the fear of buying the wrong present – the one that will subtly be re-gifted or swiftly donated to someone else.

Whether you are shopping for that special Her or Him in your life, finding the perfect luxury gift can be overwhelming.

Opting for a renowned luxury brand is a great start. A beautiful pair of Rainbow wedge sandals by Salvatore Ferragamo or an exquisite Speedmaster watch by Omega are sure to make anyone happy. But offering a luxury gift is not (just) about offering something expensive. Modern luxury revolves around everything from uniqueness to meaning to experience.

How to find the perfect luxury gift?

To make sure that your gifts are a success, consider these three helpful pointers when selecting a luxury gift for your loved ones.

1. Beyond the price, luxury is first and foremost a thoughtful experience

Make a list of the people you need to buy a gift for and what you can get them. This will help avoid picking up anything and everything from the tempting shopping mall shelves. Plus, this way you won’t end up spending $$$ on worthless gifts.

2. Luxury is celebrating his or her individuality

The most luxurious gifts are thoughtful. Great gifting requires observing, listening, researching.

Make a list of their interests. Browse their social media accounts for insights into what they “like” or the luxury brands they follow. Did they comment on a story about the latest jacket from Gucci recently? Or did they like a nice pair of Balenciaga sneakers on Instagram?

Offering a luxury gift is first and foremost about celebrating our loved ones (who they are and what they love). The biggest mistake gift givers make when picking holiday gifts is to buy what they would like, rather than what the recipient would like. Think about your recipients’ personality and style. Think back to past conversations you’ve had where they may have (inadvertently) hinted.

3. Luxury is unsurpassed quality and timeless

One of the most compelling reasons to invest in a luxury gift is the guarantee of unsurpassed quality. Consider the longevity of the gift. Do get them something they will actually use beyond January. Investing in a timeless gift will keep you top of mind time and time again.
