10 Luxury Gifts For The Person Who Has Everything

Published By

The best things in life may be free, but there will always come a time when something more than free, something downright extravagant, is worth your gifting consideration. Perhaps it’s not a right time, but a right person.

You might know someone with a charmed existence, to which you ask, “what does one give the person who has everything?” Do you need to get back into your father-in-law’s good graces this Christmas? Maybe your best bud helped you move houses on a particularly hot day this year. The 10 truly unique luxury gifts rounded up here are for all of the above, and then some.

And remember: Luxurious doesn’t have to mean wasteful. From excellent investments to long-lasting pieces of gear, all of these would-be presents are worth the price of admission.

Rolex Daytona 116528 18K Yellow Gold

Rolex Daytona 116528 18K Yellow Gold

Reference 116528 of the Daytona embodies an important shift in Rolex’s neighborhood chronograph. It runs on the powerful Calibre 4130, the brand’s first in-house chrono movement after Rolex discontinued the Zenith-powered Daytonas. Also, the running seconds is at the 6 o’clock, moved from the 9 o’clock, where it sat on the Zenith version.

Transitional models with easily-spotted changes like this are auction house darlings (aka good investments), in addition to being a cool piece of horological history. And of course, the 18k yellow gold construction makes this watch an instant family heirloom.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 Year Old

Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 Year Old

The 23 year-old Family Reserve from Pappy Van Winkle is more complex than integral calculus, but with a taste journey as effortlessly pleasant as a leisurely walk in the woods.

The scrupulously chosen barrels are apparent at first sip. From there you experience the balanced tones and undertones of cherries and apples, tempered by the darkness of tobacco, oak, a touch of chocolate, before a caramel linger sets in. Plus, the amber tone of this lavishly labored-over liquor looks chef’s-kiss beautiful in a whiskey glass.

Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket

Taylor Stitch Moto Jacket

A good leather jacket is a stylistically versatile essential, and Taylor Stitch’s Moto, with its strategic construction, is also functionally versatile. It has the timeless four-zipper, point-collar design, built with full-grain steerhide. The Cadillac of leather, it’s hardy but supple, chrome tanned for strong pliability, and will naturally patinate during its very long life.

Modern creature comforts include a Thinsulate lining for insulation, making this jacket good for cold days as well as light drizzles, and articulated shoulders, in case you need an extra layer for outdoor family football games during the more frigid times in November.

Michael Jordan Autographed Framed Print

Michael Jordan Autographed Framed Print

There are few images as iconic and as important to sports history as Michael Jordan’s victorious leap from the foul line during the Slam Dunk Contest of 1988. This framed print is autographed by Jordan, in clear, legible silver, over the expertly-shot, pre-Photoshop image. And more than just a piece of memorabilia, this print gets the museum treatment, from the acid-free mat to the UV-protective cover.

Shinola Leather Football

Shinola Leather Football

A paragon of craftsmanship, this Shinola Football is as thoroughly stunning as any luxury leather handbag or designer shoe. The exquisite texturing and color variation on the surface provide a fascinating aesthetic, as do the accents and brawny stitching. Whether you want to throw it around on the field or use it as home decor, this design object has a heritage vibe that’ll only get more distinct with age.

Bugatti Chiron

Bugatti Chiron

Continuing to be true to its legacy, Bugatti serves up a new reigning champion of speed in its history of speed champions. Every single design cue on the Chiron’s near-future, aerodynamic, carbon fiber body has a reason to be, making the Batmobile look downright clunky.

The quad headlights, LED by the way, do double-duty, also routing air to the brakes. Even the antler-like rims look like sculptural pieces of art. Basically, the Chiron impeccably balances muscle with efficiency, engineering with artistic integrity, and power with strength. Did we mention that it’s also the most powerful production sports car in the brand’s history too?

The Ridge 24 Karat Gold Wallet

The Ridge 24 Karat Gold Wallet

The Ridge Wallet is known for its economically competent design, able to Narnia-style hold 12 cards within its RFID-blocking six-millimeter architecture. Now in a 24 Karat Gold variant, you get a strikingly opulent look on top of its trusty and functional build. And though it’s 99.9% gold, the PVD-coating ensures resistance to corrosion, UV rays, and chemicals.

Shinola Canfield Double Zip Briefcase

Shinola Canfield Double Zip Briefcase

Shinola’s Canfield Double Zip combines the character of your grandfather’s leather briefcase with the sleek effectiveness of a modern nylon laptop bag. Its clean lines flaunt two main zip compartments, offering easy and snappy organization, each section cotton-lined for bubble-wrap-like protection of your belongings.

The best part is the Navigator leather it’s built with. Steeped in several different oils in the course of the tanning process, this leather is strong yet lithe, especially rich, and feels lush to the touch. Its subtly variegated surface changes beautifully over time, while also effectively taking on wear and incorporating scratches and scuffs inconspicuously. 

Bang & Olufsen Beolab 90 Speakers

Bang & Olufsen Beolab 90 Speakers

The Beolab 90 Speakers from the sound masters over at Bang & Olufsen carry a sophisticated kind of power. Instead of just more loudness, they create a dimensional sound experience that accommodates music preferences and the space they’re in.

They boast 18 state-of-the-art drivers, each pulling and pushing nuanced levers to optimize sound delivery, whether you’re in a huge room listening to classic rock or in a studio blasting hip hop. Visually, these guys are like fine art towers, with their stacked-diamond design and wooden base that would suit a wide range of interior styles.

The titanium frames aren’t just lighter on your face than standard frames, but stronger too.
