The Ultimate Luxury Gifts From Favorite Places in the World

If you’re looking for a memorable luxury gift for someone special on your list this holiday season, consider gifts that will virtually transport them to one of their favorite places in the world. Especially this year, when travel restrictions due to COVID-19 have kept most of us grounded, a luxury holiday gift that reminds them of glorious times in London, Paris, New York, Italy, Japan or Scandinavia sounds perfect. Here’s our guide to the ultimate luxury gifts from some of everyone’s favorite places in the world.

Our Guide to the Best Luxury Gifts from Favorite Places in the World

We all have a favorite place or two in the world. Sometimes its home, or just a subway ride away. But sometimes its a faraway land, across an ocean or a mountain range or a wide river. Sometimes it requires a border crossing – and right now, here during peak 2020, we can’t do that.

While we hunker down and await the happy day when we can hit the road and take to the skies again, what are we to do? Well, dear reader, that’s where these gift guides come in. When you’re looking for a marvelous luxury gift this holiday season, consider gifting something that channels the essence of your gift recipient’s favorite place.

You know, something to tide them over until they can make their long-awaited return.

1. New York

Who doesn’t love New York? We live in the city, so we admit we’re biased. But still. It has been quite a year in Gotham. And yet, we’re still standing strong. And we still feel the same giddy and passionate love for New York City that we did the very first time we saw a glimpse of its iconic skyline with our own eyes for the first time. Maybe even more.

If someone on your holiday gift list really loves New York City, or misses living here, as New Yorkers we suggest you consider our top picks for the very best luxury gifts right now with an NYC theme, here.

2. The U.K.

Is someone in your life a die-hard Anglophile? We can’t really blame them: the accents, the theatre, the pubs, the shopping, the museums. What’s not to like? We’ve been fortunate enough to take many trips across the pond as college students partying our way through London’s club scene. And later, as proper and responsible adults on work trips. No matter the stage in life, London – even in its drizzly dark days – wraps its arms around you with a soothing cuppa and a dose of quirky, dry wit.

What are the best luxury British-inspired gifts for those on your list who can’t get enough of London and everything else that reflects English culture? Have a look at our top picks here.

3. France

There are so many entry points to becoming a full-fledged Francophile. For some, it started with a love of ballet and exposure to French terminology as a young girl or boy. Or perhaps the bon vivant in your life fell in love with French food.

And of course, there’s the much exalted, iconic French style and fashion sense. From the OG French fashionista, Marie Antoinette to Coco Chanel to Carine Roitfeld, the effortless cool and “bien dans sa peau” (well in one’s skin) is something women the world over have admired and tried to emulate.

Looking for the perfect gift for someone who really loves Paris, and all things French? For the Francophiles on your luxury gift list, we’ve got a dozen ideas to help get you started, here.

4. Italy

Few countries in the world have captured the mind, spirit and body like Italy. From its rich stores of history, architecture, art, music, fashion and of course, gastronomy, Italian goods are symbolic of simple and extravagant luxuries, and reflect a life well-lived.

Perhaps you know someone chasing the dream of La Dolce Vita. And what about that friend who can’t stop referencing their escapades in Positano during a long-ago summer? Yes, we have one of those too. For these folks, nothing but a gift inspired by Italian culture will do. Have a look at our ultimate “I Love Italy” luxury gift guide, the perfect luxury gift guide for Italophiles, here.

5. Japan

From the electric metropolis of Tokyo, to the ancient charm of Kyoto, to its gorgeous mountain ranges and skiing in Hokkaido, Japan has more than a lifetime’s worth of sights to see, history to learn and culture to appreciate. Many people are fascinated by Japanese culture and history, and want to learn more. Others have lived there and feel nostalgic, or dream of visiting.

Is someone on your luxury holiday gift list a Japanophile – someone who loves Japan and its culture? Then why not get them a luxury gift this holiday season that’s made in or that’s all about Japan? Our luxury gift guide with inspired gifts for Japanophiles is meant to inspire you – have a look here.

6. Scandinavia

It’s no secret that we’ve been intrigued by Scandinavia recently.  From their devastatingly cool clothing brands to their eye candy filled fashion weeks to their dynamic dining destinations and passion for solving crimes – we are loving Scandi lifestyle and culture these days.

It isn’t just the fashion and food though. There’s of course the famous interior design, the burgeoning pop music scene, the museums, the egalitarianism and of course, the notions of Norwegian and Danish “hygge” (a mood of coziness and comfort) and Swedish “lagom” (living a balanced, happy life) that have us daydreaming of all things sleek and minimalist.

Looking for the perfect present for someone who really loves Nordic design and style? We’ve got lots of ideas to help you get started – just click here.
