Luxury Gifts

Ever seen this logo before? If not, you should read on.

If you're not familiar with some high end luxury market, names such as Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Prada may seem prestigious. Granted, they are nice-however, spend some time looking through the smaller, individual boutiques and one will soon realize that luxury extends much further than household name brands (such as the ones I mentioned before) into the realm of branding that only the most savvy spenders know of. If you're looking for a gift and you'd like to impress, intrigue and surprise the lucky recipient, then here are a few brand names you may want to consider.

1. Breitling - While not as mysterious as some brands, instead of the typical Tag Heuer or Rolex timepiece, consider a Breitling. With aviation inspired design, these Swiss masterpieces are not as common and lead to great conversation. Beware of internet sales, as the company has had increasing numbers of fraud watch sales.

2. Waterford Crystal - Never heard of them? Well if you need some dinner plates or accents, they may have just what you need. What's their resume like? Nothing major, just the creation of the New York New Year's Eve Ball.

3. J. Mendel - Notorious for their fine fur, Gilles Mendel has also branched into the creation of exclusive and high-end evening dresses, which are all hand crafted, meaning that no two will ever be exactly alike.

4. Jacques Torres - Available either online or from their retail store located in New York, "Mr. Chocolate" offers a luxurious gift idea that is an alternative to the more commonly known Godiva. Worth a look if sweets are your thing, and most likely will be earning you some brownie points. Pun intended.
