Holiday Shopping, Part 2

Etro / DeLeón Tequila / BrioniLa Prairie / BuccellatiNew York, New York—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

What do you get for someone who already has everything? Here are a couple of ideas that are as easy as they are opulent.

Etro is making waves with its first foray into beach-ready sporting goods. The house’s distinctive paisley pattern adds a dose of 1960s-era chic to a new line of colorful surfboards that look right at home whether you’re hanging ten on holiday or just sitting pretty

While a perfectly aged bottle of scotch or cognac never fails to delight, go for the unexpected this holiday season with DeLeón Tequila’s ultra-exclusive new reserve, Leóna. Pure blue weber agave and natural spring water are distilled and aged 34 months in superior Sauternes barrels before it’s bottled and packaged in its limited-edition black box, complete with a python flask ($825).

Brioni’s latest sartorial masterwork redefines the gold standard in suiting. Crafted from a new fabric woven with actual threads of 24K gold—developed exclusively for the house—the newest iteration of its classic Chigi suit cuts an attention-commanding figure. Subtly gilded pinstripes are made to measure for the gentleman with the Midas touch ($17,000).

Gorgeous, glowing skin never goes out of style—and now La Prairie’s coveted Caviar Collection comes in packaging that’s every bit as dazzling. To honor the 25th anniversary of the luxe line’s debut, the new Caviar Cristal gift set boasts a custom-sized version of its best-selling hydrator (packed with rich, skin-saving caviar extracts), housed in a shimmering crystal case that commands pride of place on any vanity ($1,100).

To celebrate six decades of showstopping baubles, Buccellati is rolling out 60 unique styles of pendant earrings. Each pair is completely one of a kind, incorporating precious gems in an array of juicy hues, with many taking months or even years to complete (a testament to the Italian house’s artisanal craftsmanship). The only challenge with a gift this gorgeous? Narrowing it down to one pair (earrings with green tourmaline, $234,800).
