The best luxury gifts to give this 2020 holiday season

A Rolex Watch

Widely recognized as the leading luxury watch brand in the world, gifting a Rolex watch this holiday season will no doubt delight the lucky recipient. But which Rolex would make the best present? We highly recommend going with a classic choice like this Rolex Datejust ref. 16014.

With a perfectly proportional 36mm case, the Rolex Datejust ref. 16014 is ideal for just about any wrist, whether for men, women, younger or older. What’s more, the stainless steel case and bracelet accompanied by a white gold fluted bezel is an understated, yet luxurious, metal combination that is appropriate for daily wear.

One design detail that sets this Datejust apart from others is the stunning linen dial, which adds a touch of texture to this beautiful and timeless luxury watch.

A Cartier Bracelet

Few things say “I Love You” as stylishly as the iconic Love bracelet by Cartier. One of the most recognizable pieces of fine jewelry ever made since its debut in the 1970s, the unisex Cartier Love bracelet is a fantastic way for lovers to express their unbreakable bond–you do need a special screwdriver to remove it, after all.

To ensure the right style for him or her, Cartier offers the Love bracelet in a bevy of sizes and variations, including white, yellow, or pink gold, in addition to the choice of with or without diamonds.

If you’re unsure of what size of a Love bracelet to get, Cartier recommends adding 1 cm to the wrist measurement for a tighter fit or 2 cm for a looser fit.

A GIA Certified Diamond

Let’s be honest, with so many fine jewelry styles out there, it can be a challenge to pick the right one. So why not opt for a GIA certified loose diamond and let your loved one design a dream jewelry piece from there.

Once you’ve decided on the diamond shape (e.g. round, cushion, square, pear, and so on) in addition to cut, color, carat, and clarity of the diamond (known as the 4Cs), it can be turned into a necklace, ring, earring, or bracelet. Regardless of the stone you have your heart set on, rest assured that GIA-certified diamonds have been graded by the folks who not only created the 4Cs standard but who are also accepted as the independent, diamond authority.

If you still need a little more guidance and are unsure of where to begin, a classic round-cut diamond between 1.00 and 2.00 carats is a great place to start.

A Montblanc Pen

While keyboards have become our main writing tool these days, there’s still something to be said about writing a note with a fine pen in one’s hand. In fact, it could be argued that handwritten letters, messages, notes, and signatures are all the more special in today’s digital landscape.

For those who still cherish pen and paper over keys and screens, a Montblanc pen would be a terrific luxury gift to receive this holiday season. And if you have a creative writer on your list this year, then a limited edition Montblanc fountain pen made in honor of famed novelist, Jules Verne, is an extra special writing instrument that will surely ignite the imagination.

An Orbita Watch Winder

Purchasing a timepiece for a watch enthusiast is a daunting task, to say the least. Given their passion, a watch enthusiast will of course be extraordinarily picky about which watches are suitable to wear or join his or her collection. Therefore, if selecting a luxury watch for a watch collector is too much of a challenge to bear, fear not, there’s another type of machine that will be very much appreciated–the watch winder!

Due to its consistent motion, a watch winder allows one to store an automatic watch without having to worry that the watch will run out of power. As the leading purveyor of premium watch winders, Orbita makes a glorious assortment to suit all types of watch owners. And if there’s something that an avid watch collector will appreciate, is not having to deal with the task of having to constantly readjust watches that have been off the wrist for a while.

From wall to ceiling cabinets to compact boxes that will fit securely in a safe, an Orbita watch winder may prove to be one of the most practical and thoughtful luxury gifts to give this season.
