Sometimes you’re absent-minded or just busy, and sometimes your gift plans fall through. Whatever your reason, there are times when you need to give a luxury gift at the last minute. Not to worry, here are six excellent and thoughtful luxury gift ideas that you can pull off at the last minute. It is never too late to show them you care!
Dom Pérignon Vintage
If your gift’s recipient decides to pop open the bottle or save it for a special occasion, a bottle of bubbly is always a welcome gift and a bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage makes it even more special. As Dom Pérignon’s Chef de Cave, Richard Geoffroy stated, “I keep referring to risk at Dom Pérignon, to step outside one’s comfort zone: to me it’s the essence – an element of magic comes out of it.” His challenges become your reward as you’ve landed on a perfectly lovely last-minute gift. Depending on your location or the gift recipient’s location, you may be able to use their One Hour Delivery tool on their website to have the gift delivered almost immediately.
Galop d’Hermes Parfum
A fragrance is always a welcome gift, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving – for both of you. You can opt for their favorite go-to fragrance or try something new. We love Galop d’Hermes Parfum which Hermes describes as “a contemporary manifesto that expresses absolute freedom in feminine expression and in a perfume.” Its creator, Christine Nagel adds, “At Hermès I discovered all the femininity of leather. I composed Galop d’Hermès like a painting with two main colours… Two raw materials that are emblematic to Hermès and to perfumery: leather and rose.” It’s a gorgeous combination that is beyond appealing.
Louis Vuitton City Steamer
Vuitton is always an ideal gift – last minute or not. But the classic and go for something fun. As they describe it, “The sleek City Steamer pays homage to House heritage while offering a host of new signature twists: note the engraved padlock, nametag, and hot-stamped LV Circle. It is a city bag that takes care of business, too, with ample room for papers and files.” With Louis Vuitton, you cannot go wrong.
Ghurka Beauty Case
Part tool chest and part secure protection, the Ghurka Beauty Case is the perfect accessory for the traveling woman. Ghurka notes “Safeguarding your cosmetics accessories with resounding protection and stately charm, our Beauty Case is a leather beauty trunk that boasts professional, interior storage and a vintage glamour that only comes from the trunk silhouette.” This is where functionality meets form.
Ghurka Leather Backgammon Set
A backgammon set of this quality is definitely a mark of status and an ideal last minute gift idea that’s perfect for the competitive man. Ghurka adds, “A Backgammon set for the aficionado. Our leather-wrapped case and interior features leather dice cups, leather playing pieces, and is lockable.” With the Ghurka Leather Backgammon Set, Ghurka’s style shines with this beautiful game set.
Whether it ends up being used for ashes or as a spot to drop your change at the end of the day, the Hermes Ashtray is ideal because it is, in and of itself, a piece of art. There are many available for all tastes and decors and one of our favorites is the Album de Colportage. They describe it as an “ashtray in printed Limoges porcelain covered with velvet goatskin base”.
We always recommend planning ahead to find the perfect gift, but when that’s not possible, there are options for locating the perfect last-minute luxury gift. Hopefully, this list was helpful for you, which gift fits best for your recipient? You might also try these gifts to have ready for unexpected holiday guests.
