Searching for luxury gift ideas this holiday season? Then scrap the traditional baskets and gift cards and opt for some world-class experiences.
In September, we provided you with 5 High-End Corporate Gift ideas to “wow” your business colleagues. So this month, as the holidays draw near, we’re presenting you with 3 outside-the-box luxury gift ideas. Happy Holidays to the budding bakers, world travelers, and spa enthusiasts in your life.
For the Wannabe Chef
Yes, traditional cooking classes are an outdated gift. However, you can still treat your connoisseur of fine cuisine to a next-level kitchen experience. Momofuku Milk Bar hosts routine “Bake the Book Classes.” Attendees learn how to make their Momofuku favorites at home. Or consider a private cooking demonstration with a celebrity chef. Invite a former Top Chef contestant into your home to make braised lamb, and you’ll have experience you’re not likely to forget.
For the True Nostalgic
Trains transport us to simpler times, and the Venice Simplon-Orient Express is no exception. With antique fixtures and 1920s-era Grand Suites, the Simpson-Orient transports passengers from city to city across Europe. It’s the perfect present for any sentimental train buff.
For the Spa-Goer
As far as luxury gift ideas go, an all-expense-paid trip to a geothermal spa is the pinnacle. The Blue Lagoon Spa in Iceland has become one of the most popular destinations in Europe. And because the stunning Silica Hotel is a short walk from the lagoon, you can experience the spa over one lavish weekend.
Whether you’re gifting an elaborate cake-making class or a scenic train ride through the European countryside, you’re guaranteed to impress. So this year, forget the customary luxury gift ideas and opt for some extraordinary world-class experiences.
