Looking for a stand-out luxury gift? Love the color orange? Our luxury gift guide to the best in the color orange should give you lots of inspiration and ideas. Our correspondent Jillian Tangen has rounded up the best luxury gifts that are the color orange. Sunny, sweet and eye-catching – it’s hard not to love orange.
why have a luxury gift guide all in one color?
Here at Dandelion Chandelier, we’ve created curated lists of all-of-a-color luxury items and experiences for those who love a particular hue – or whose gift recipients do.
Why? Because for starters, it’s an easier way to shop. Your eye can focus on just one shade in the visual cacophony at retail, or you can more easily search for ideas online.
Second, when the presents are open, everything looks great together! What could be better for your Instagram photos? Color-coding is clearly the way to go if you want to look pulled-together for posterity.
Finally, it’s just fun for someone who loves color, and shopping, and pulling everything all together. ‘Cause why not?
we love the color orange for luxury gifts
The luxury gift guide of the best presents in the color orange is one of the most joyful ones to write. And why not?
The color orange just might be one of the juiciest, yummiest and happiest hues under the sun. Orange radiates good health, optimism and sunshine. It’s fresh and sweet, but it can also have an undertone of bitterness for balance.
Ever better? Orange is completely gender-neutral so anyone can rock it as long as they have the right attitude. For some it signifies high summer, with all of its freedom and adventure. For others, it’s the color of autumn – a time of renewed purpose and reflection. It can signify Halloween fun and annual family feasts.
Louis Vuitton and Hermes, among other luxury brands, claim orange as their signature color, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s striking, memorable, energizing and distinctive.
And yet for all of that, orange is largely unencumbered by the weight of expectations. When people see it, they generally anticipate being delighted and surprised. With orange, you can never be sure what will happen next, but it’s usually something good. So whether you call it apricot, melon, tangerine or peach – this year more than ever, we need more orange in the world.
the best luxury gifts that are the color orange
With that in mind, here’s our a list of the best luxury gifts that are orange. Perfect orange gifts to give and to receive, not to mention possibly inspire you to live your most vibrant life.
From subtle flecks to all-out neon, here are 33 luxurious orange gifts to behold:
1. Fine Jewelry
Fortunately for orange lovers, there is lots to choose from when it comes to jewelry. For something vibrant and sparkly, you can’t go wrong with this Tiffany Legacy Orange Spessartite Ring ($6,800) or a Stephanie Windsor Antiques Rivière Necklace ($4,200) made from reclaimed sterling silver and orange paste crystals. For something a little more subtle (as if anything orange could be subtle though) we like the David Yurman Citrine Cable Bracelet ($575) and these easy going Lele Sadoughi Stone Starlet Earrings ($188).
2. Haute horlogerie
Adorn their wrist with a pop of color with the iconic Rolex Milgauss GV ($8,200) that features an orange lightning bolt and even special resistance to magnetic fields. For a bolder look, we like the classic Hermes Cape Cod Watch ($2,750) or the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean ($6,450) with a coordinating Omega Nato Watch Strap ($160) either. Either will add a cheerful final touch to any outfit.
3. For the home
Deck their home out with orange accents like the spirited orange version of the mid century modern classic Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair ($8,251). Or for something a little smaller we suggest something like a Monica Rich Kosann Silver Plated & Orange Enamel Picture Frame ($100) or the deliciously tart and spicy Diptyque Oranger Candle ($65). For newlyweds or as a housewarming gift, we love these Ichendorf Milano Aurora Water Stemmed Glasses ($14 each) that are handmade in Italy and will only add to the stimulating conversations over drinks.
4. A statement handbag
A statement bag makes just that, a statement. So what better way to do so than by giving someone a statement bag in a major statement color like orange. If you are going to go big, we suggest the Louis Vuitton Twist Bag in Topaze Imperiale Crocodile ($18,400) or the bright Gucci Flora Tote Bag ($1,500) with orange leather trim and colorful flowers. If they love logos, we suggest the Burberry Monogram Print Bum Bag ($690) or for something more classic consider the clean lined Longchamp Roseau Tote Bag ($845). Not matter which you choose, it will surely make them standout.
5. Travel gear
This Louis Vuitton Horizon Soft 55 Roller ($2,810) will never be mistaken for someone else’s and neither will this Herschel Hard Shell Trade Suitcase ($229). For someone who likes to stay organized while on the road there a Serapian Passport Holder ($195) or a lightweight nylon State Bedford Backpack ($110) with plenty of internal storage pockets and plenty of room for tech gear.
Hermes’ cashmere scarves, stoles and shawls come in every possible shade of orange and range in price from $400-$995. They will probably go bananas for this colorful Prada key trick with bananas ($550) that was room for both cards and keys and is easy to stash in their newfound orange statement bag. These stylish illesteva Lisbon Sunglasses in apricot ($240) are a fun pick to top off their wardrobe, while this Poketo Project Planner in Poppy ($38) will help to get them organized on the go.
7. Beauty and fragrance
The iconic Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte ($138) was the first cologne the house ever made. It has notes of orange zest and leaves, lemon, mandarin, mint and blackcurrant bud. Help them recharge their skin with a bottle of Sunday Riley CEO Glow packed with vitamin C and tumeric ($40-80). Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin Exfoliating Shower Gel ($40) is the perfect citrusy shot of orange energy to revive your gift recipient on even the gloomiest day. Alternatively you can gift them with a bottle of Jin Soon Enflamme Nail Polish ($18) to take their next mani-pedi to the next level of fun.
8. Shoes, boots and sneakers
Orange footwear makes for a fierce look that we cannot help but love. For just a small squeeze of orange we like these new Track Trainers ($895) from Balenciaga. For something a little more dressy we like these cheery Prada Orange Leather Slides ($550) that are just perfect for summer cookouts and beach trips. Allbirds Tree Runners ($95) in orange make a great gift for men, women and children alike, while these Birkenstock Madrid Eva Sandals ($29.95) are a great hostess gift for your next beach house visit.
If you want to be really on-the-nose, there are some fantastic books that keep the orange theme going. For example, you could gift the splendid new story collection Orange World by Karen Russell. Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman. Russell’s titular story, in particular, is a wonderful evocation of the color orange. An expecting mother is in a new parent’s class learning how to care for her soon-to-be-born first child. The instructor tells her: “Green world” is when everything goes perfectly. “Red world” is when total disaster strikes. And “Orange World,” the New Parents Educator says, “is where most of us live.”
10. A luxury car
To close our luxury gift guide of the best gifts in the color orange, here’s one to dream on. Anyone who loves orange would surely appreciate the gift of an orange Lamborghini Huracán EVO (From $261,274), right? It would definitely be a memorable gift.
That’s our luxury gift guide of perfect presents in the color orange. If there’s one thing we learned as we conducted this hunt for orange bounty, it’s this: orange is unusual, and quirky, and ultimately exactly what you make of it. And that kind of joyful freedom is the best gift of all.
