Luxury gifts for Christmas – for the big and the small purse

No ideas for Christmas 2018? The recipient already has everything? Don’t believe that. There is always something you can give to someone.

Parents, grandma, grandpa, friends, the loved one – there should be something special for everyone. But that’s not always easy.

We have put together a selection of luxurious gift ideas for all those who still need a gift. And this for each category. This is why has a lot of gift tips for Christmas.

But watch out: None of the gifts is off the peg, but sometimes needs a bit of lead time. After all, good things take time! Plan some time for the purchase, no matter whether you decide to buy on the Internet or in a local shop. In any case, you will find a luxury gift, which will give the recipient a surprise and perhaps even a leap of joy.
And if you belong to the last-minute shoppers: Also a voucher for a gift from the respective category brings joy!

Accessories: Jewellery is almost always possible. Important: It must please!

You know, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. That’s beyond your budget? Then perhaps a variation with zirconia or another semi-precious stone will do. What counts most when you give jewellery as a present is that the wearer likes it. The downward price is therefore of secondary importance, because even inexpensive pieces of jewellery are worth a look. In contrast, it makes sense to set a price limit upwards. And if the jewellery costs more than originally thought a voucher might help.

Art: The value lies in the eye of the beholder

Art exists in every price category. From a few euros for a drawing to the painting of a popular painter for a few thousand or the sculpture of a famous artist that costs several millions. If you’re unsure, it’s best to select an entire collective of artists – and give away a voucher for a visit to a museum or gallery, such as this one. The most effective way, of course, is to visit a cultural centre that the recipient has not visited yet. So come up with something unusual!

Gourmet: Do you want to score at the family Christmas celebration with an unusual food?

Then give away a black truffle! The mushroom is an eye-catcher in any case. With this gift you are guaranteed to be amazed. Tip: First let the recipient guess what he got. We guarantee that not everyone will immediately find out. Many have never seen a black truffle before, let alone held it in their own hands. Don’t you want to be the first to give someone this unique chance?

Living: The own roof over one’s head or a plea for more cosiness

Giving an entire apartment or even a house as a gift is certainly beyond the scope – even for luxurious gifts. One idea would be to fold money into a house and give it away as a down payment for one’s own apartment or house. Alternatively, there is a range of furniture and furnishings that make living much more pleasant. Even seemingly insignificant things like a new pillow, a cashmere blanket or a new mattress can make you feel more comfortable at home.

Mobile: A voucher for a great car is a first-class gift

No, you shouldn’t give away a Ferrari or a Lamborghini. A voucher for a ride in a luxury car also does the trick. If this already exceeds your planned budget, have a look at the fleet of Car2Go or Drive Now. The car sharing services sometimes hide the purest luxury cars, such as the AMG CLA from Daimler. In this case, the driver only has to register before! You transfer the costs to the presentee afterwards – depending on how long the journey takes.

Travel: How about a short trip to a 5-star hotel? This is pure luxury!

Too expensive? It doesn’t matter. An overnight stay in a 5-star hotel in your own city will also do. Of course, only in a double room and best of all as a couple. There is no 5-star palace in your town? Then be creative and choose a beautiful and elegant hotel in the nearest town. This will certainly make your loved one cheer for joy. And your parents will also be thrilled if you spoil them as thanks for the many hard years.

Now Christmas Eve can come! Much joy with the presents!

Merry Christmas!

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc: Eine Legende wird 100

Sonnenschein. Dazu der einmalige Ausblick auf die Côte d’Azur und einen Cocktail in der Hand und ahh! – Ist das nicht schön? Wo kann man diesen fantastischen Ausblick genießen, wenn nicht im irdischen Paradies?

Persönlichkeiten checken hier ein
Ob es den Promis und Stars, die im Eden Roc eincheckten wirklich so erging? Wir können es nur erahnen. Denn vieles, was sich hinter den Mauern des Fünf-Sterne-Hotels abspielt, bleibt für die Öffentlichkeit verborgen. Das war schon in der Vergangenheit so und wird auch immer so bleiben. Denn gerade das Abschirmen vor der Öffentlichkeit ist etwas, was den Stars am Eden Rock so gut gefällt. Und auch das Personal ist an Unauffälligkeit kaum zu überbieten. Doch das heißt nicht etwa, dass man als Gast im Eden Roc auf sich allein gestellt ist, sicher nicht: Wer einen Wunsch hat, bekommt diesen stets erfüllt. Das Personal ist also stets zur Stelle, wenn man es braucht – so jedenfalls sein Ruf. Aus diesem Grund checkten schon Stars wie Pablo Picasso und Marylin Monroe in das Hotel ein, dessen Wurzeln in das Jahr 1870 zurückreichen.

2014: 100 Jahre Paradies auf Erden
Im Jahr 1914 wurde das bestehende Haus durch den Eden Roc Pavillon erweitert. Eine zusätzliche Felssprengung in den Basalt schuf ein Meerwasserbecken für Schwimmer. Seit der Zusammenführung von Hotel du Cap und Pavillon bilden beide eine Einheit, zu erkennen am Namen Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. In diesem Jahr nähert sich die Vereinigung zum hundertsten Mal: Das muss gefeiert werden! Aber – psst! – natürlich hinter abgeschirmten Mauern, dass auch ja niemand von den Intimitäten der Feierlichkeiten erfährt. Wir gratulieren herzlich!

Und eines dürfen wir sogar verraten: Zum hundertsten Jubiläum gönnte sich das noble Hotel eine neue Terrasse – natürlich mit Rundblick über die Côte d’Azur. Wer kann da noch wiederstehen?
