Best Luxury Gifts in the Color Yellow

Looking for a luxury gift for someone who loves the color yellow? Our correspondent Abbie Martin Greenbaum has curated our luxury gift guide to the best gifts in the color yellow.

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.

Yellow is one of our all-time favorite colors. It’s bright, effervescent, and impossible to miss. It makes us feel completely happy and carefree. In 2009, when “mimosa” was Pantone’s color of the year, they said that yellow “exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun.” 

If hope has a color, we think it’s yellow: the hue of the sun and newborn chicks and golden retrievers – of egg yolks and fresh-churned butter, of lemons and New York taxis. 

It stands for strength and purpose – think lions on the savanna. And of course, yellow is arguably the color of celebration: champagne and white wine; roses and honey; birthday cake! A yellow traffic light means there’s still time. It’s not too late.

So why not make the most of it? Call it saffron, citrine, blond, primrose, or even aureate: it could be just the hue that your gift recipient needs as inspiration to hurry along toward their dreams.

1. For the home

Maybe you know someone hoping to develop a bit of a green thumb. These yellow planters from West Elm ($51) and The Sill ($45) will make the happiest of homes for new plants.

2. Apparel and Accessories

On a grey day, a sure-fire pick-me-up is a pop of yellow. We love this chic mohair and wool-blend sweater from Isabel Marant ($625). The version from Acne Studios is a paler butter color ($340). And Max Mara’s blanket-like cardigan ($1,090) is perfect for going out or just hanging around in.

New York’s iconic taxis are another legendary use of the color yellow. Kate Spade incorporates this in a wonderful, whimsical way with these new flats ($278) and earrings ($48). A little bit yellow, a little bit New York.

We also love the yellow version of Off-White by Virgil Abloh’s new line of luggage, called “Quote.” With this roller bag ($1,000), your gift recipient will almost surely never get separated from their suitcase. Globe-Trotter’s Riviera Centenary cabin suitcase ($1,440) is more refined, but it radiates the same yellow-and-white joy.

Everyone’s favorite yellow drink the mimosa – can become a wonderful gift. This mimosa bar kit ($30) features sugar cubes to add a variety of yummy flavors to your orange juice and champagne. Consider pairing it with a bottle of their favorite bubbly.

If you’re looking to help light up your favorite cook’s kitchen, we love this yellow retro fridge from Smeg. It’s a bold splash of color that will radiate optimism on even the darkest days. If that’s a bit over-the-top, there are two brilliant-yellow kettles that will make for bright mornings in the kitchen – one from Smeg and one from DeLonghi ($139.95)

5. beauty and fragrance

Atelier Cologne’s Bergamote Soleil Cologne Absolue is like sunshine in a bottle ($130.00). Byredo’s new fragrance Sundazed ($260) is meant to evoke the feel of the first glimpse of sunlight following a long, cold winter. Louis Vuitton launched three new fragrances this year inspired by the California coast. For purposes of yellow gifting, we vote for Sun Song ($250), “an ode to the orange blossom, the euphoria of those first beautiful days of summer, and feeling the warmth of sunlight on the skin.”

6. Destination Yellow

Also on the topic of lemons, you could fuel your recipient’s wanderlust by getting them a pair of tickets to attend the spectacular Festival Du Citron in Menton, France. Next year’s festival runs from February 15 – March 3, 2020. Meaning you have plenty of time to supply your lucky gift recipient with plane tickets and a hotel reservation.

The 5-star Connaught Hotel in London in springtime fully embraces yellow – at least, it did the last time we were there. Perhaps your gift recipient would love to experience springtime in London?

A rugged sports watch tends to come in handy for active types. How about this vibrant, water-resistant G-Shock S-Series model ($104)? 

But sometimes the great outdoors is the place you live – for many of us, it’s a city. Which means we need rain gear to get us from Point A to Point B as stylishly and as dry as we can be. So how about a gift of iconic yellow rain boots? Everyone knows that rain boots are supposed to be yellow. Give the gift of stylish, dry feet with Hunter’s tall yellow rain boots ($150).

8. Mellow Yellow Tunes 

This awesome record player ($399) comes in a spectacular yellow. And why not make sure the first record someone plays on it is in fact, the vinyl of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine ($21.23)? Strictly speaking, the cover of Beyonce’s iconic Lemonade is not yellow — but who cares? We love it.

9. Books

There are LOTS of books with yellow covers, so if that’s your criteria, have at it. If you want to give the gift of a good read that also happens to have a tie to the color yellow, here are three that we’ve read and loved: Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The debut poetry collection Her Favorite Color Was Yellow by Edgar Holmes. And The Ensemble by Aja Gabel, a fantastic novel about music and friendship.

10. Play time!

The recent release of Detective Pikachu means that everyone’s favorite yellow friend is everywhere right now. This adorable Pikachu plushie ($49.99) would make a great present for someone in need of cheer.

You can give the yellow-loving gearheads in your life a Lamborghini – it’s your call if you want to make it a real one, or this scale diecast model of a Lamborghini Aventador ($23.99).  

But for our money, the best luxury gift in the color yellow is this irresistible Mr. Maria extra-large smiley face lamp ($129). We dare you to look at it and remain in a bad mood.
