Elite Traveler’s Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide

We have curated over 100 gifts across 10 categories, ranging from the tech-lover to the frequent flier.

By Alex Martin

Elite Traveler, the world’s leading private jet lifestyle magazine, is proud to present the Holiday Gift Guide. As they say, there is a perfect gift out there for everyone, but that gift becomes a lot harder to find if you are buying for one of the world’s most affluent people. This ultimate luxury gift guide is designed to offer a helping hand to high earners with an extensive selection of the most exclusive and sought-after items.

Our team of luxury lifestyle writers have curated a list of over 100 gifts available only to a select few. We have divided the gifts into 10 distinct categories, including For Him, For Her and Wine & Spirits.

We paid particular attention to our Giftable Experiences guide, which offers a select list of the most exclusive vacations with a responsible edge. The Giftable Experiences include everything from a bespoke James Bond-style adventure to a luxury (yes, luxury) ultramarathon through the Scottish Highlands.

Our dedicated Kids Gift Guide lends a helping hand to those spending this holiday season with little ones. Often the hardest people to buy for, today’s children are as discerning as most adults. While many have no problem putting a list of requests together, our gift guide offers a list of presents that are sure to surprise and delight them.

With many of the world’s most prominent billionaires looking towards the stars, we’ve opted for a celestial theme in this year’s guide. From a trip to space with Virgin Galactic to a wallet crafted from a genuine meteorite, this year’s Billionaire Gift Guide pays homage to their growing appetite to peer over the event horizon.

Our editor in chief, Alex Martin, has paid particular attention to this year’s Wine & Spirits Gift Guide, curating a selection of the best expressions he’s tried throughout 2022. From the rarest Japanese whisky ever released to a stunning bourbon blend created by an industry legend, this year’s guide has been curated for the serious collector.
