It is thrilling to receive a gift that feels truly special, wrapped just so and tied with a bow. We cherish memories of past presents chosen for us with thought, love and care. And wouldn’t we all like to treat our friends and family to gifts just as grand?
In that spirit, we looked to the unexpected for inspiration, from the warm glow of a Macassar ebony-wood oil lamp to the exquisite delicacy of a hand-sculpted Klimenkoff porcelain flower. We gathered ideas to delight the discerning, the dear—and even the downright difficult-to-buy-for people. Our motto: fewer fruitcakes, more fabulous.
Armed with eclectic holiday opulence, our gift-giving expectations are great and slightly outside the box. We hope you’ll have fun wrapping up some of these unexpected gifts.
