The festive season is almost here and that means it’s time to get some gifting inspiration for the loved ones in your life. But it can be tricky to figure out what to give the person who already has everything or has a particular kind of taste (re: luxury). No matter whether it’s for festive season or you just need some fresh suggestions for birthday or house-warming gifts. This month, we’ve compiled a selection of ideas for the luxe lover in your life.
Scents about you
There’s something about a beautiful perfume that feels opulent. If you’re wanting to introduce a new sensory experience to a loved one, why not try the new Bvlgari Allegra collection. Consisting of five exhilarating fragrances and five Magnifying essences, Bvlgari Allegra invites you to experience the Roman passion for life first hand. Best of all, it can be personalised! Choose one of the five eau de parfums and then pick an additional essence to craft something truly unique. And truly, there’s nothing better than a custom gift!
The real aficionados know, a good coffee machine makes all the difference. Spoil the discerning coffee lover in your life with a high-end machine or grinder for that best morning brew, like Smeg’s coffee drip machine or the sleek Nespresso machine. Alternatively, if they’re avid tea drinkers, the Smeg cordless stainless steel kettle might be a great option.

For lovers of Japanese design, the hibachi grill has cemented itself as a must-have for anyone who wants a high-quality item. What makes these grills different is their cylindrical shape, as the Japanese word hibachi translates to ‘fire bowl’. Have a look at Setamono.co.za and yuppiechef.com
Luxe personal care sets
A good travel kit is worth it’s weight in gold. Thinking of the frequent flyer in your life? Check out high-end skincare brand travel sets or get something they can use in their bathrooms. If they’re often out of their homes on business trips abroad, a signature scent can really calm the senses. Shop Aesop skincare and personal care sets on loadingbay.co.za
Linen bedding sets
Nothing says comfort and leisure, quite like 100% linen bedding. It can be pricey, but ultimately it’s an investment that’s made to last. Linen is eco-friendly and sustainable, as it’s a natural fibre that’s far more durable than cotton. It’s also cooling in warmer months and gets softer as you use it.
